SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On October 7, 2019, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), Commerce published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on small diameter seamless pipe from Romania covering four producers/exporters.1 On October 15, 2019, United States Steel Corporation (the petitioner) withdrew its request for administrative review of SC TMK-Artrom S.A. (TMK-Artrom) and SC Tubinox S.A. (Tubinox).2 Based on this request, we rescinded this review with respect to TMK-Artrom and Tubinox, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).3 The administrative review remains active with respect to the two remaining companies for which a review was initiated, i.e., ArcelorMittal and Silcotub. On April 24, 2020, Commerce tolled all deadlines in administrative reviews by 50 days, thereby extending the deadline for these results until June 22, 2020.4 Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the Order 5 is small diameter seamless pipe from Romania. The product is currently classified under subheadings 7304.10.10.20, 7304.10.50.20, 7304.19.10.20, 7304.19.50.20, 7304.31.30.00, 7304.31.60.50, 7304.39.00.16, 7304.39.00.20, 7304.39.00.24, 7304.39.00.28, 7304.39.00.32, 7304.51.50.05, 7304.51.50.60, 7304.59.60.00, 7304.59.80.10, 7304.59.80.15, 7304.59.80.20, and 7304.59.80.25 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS).

Constructed export price (CEP) is calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. NV is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/ index.html. The signed and electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. A list of the topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as an appendix to this notice. Preliminary Determination of No Shipments We preliminarily determine that ArcelorMittal had no shipments of the subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.7 Consistent with its practice, Commerce finds that it is not appropriate to preliminarily rescind the review with respect to ArcelorMittal, but rather to complete the review and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of this review. Preliminary Results of Review As a result of this review, Commerce preliminarily determines that the following weighted-average dumping margin exists for the period August 1, 2018 through July 31, 2019: 6 See Memorandum, ‘‘Certain Small Diameter Carbon and Alloy Seamless Standard, Line and Pressure Pipe from Romania: Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Preliminary Determination of No Shipments; 2018– 2019,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). 7 Id.
