Weightedaverage margin (percent) 21.22 Disclosure of Calculations We intend to disclose the calculations performed for these final results within five days of the date of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protections (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. We will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for each importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Commerce’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ practice will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not know that the merchandise they sold to the intermediary (e.g., a reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.10 We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review. 10 For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Administrative Protective Order (APO) This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to APO of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding.

(collectively, Tenaris USA), and on April 16, 2020, Commerce received a notice of intent to participate from United States Steel Corporation (U.S. Steel), Vallourec Star, L.P. and Welded Tube USA, Inc. (collectively, Vallourec USA), and BENTELER Steel/ Tube Manufacturing Corp. (BENTELER).3 All notices of intent to participate were filed within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). Tenaris USA, U.S. Steel, Vallourec USA, and BENTELER (collectively, domestic interested parties) claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as producers of OCTG in the United States. On May 1, 2020, Commerce received an adequate substantive response from the domestic interested parties within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3).4 Commerce did not receive any submissions from any other interested parties. Because Commerce did not receive a substantive response from either the Government of China (GOC) or the respondent interested parties who are producers or exporters of OCTG, we determined that respondent interested parties provided inadequate responses to Commerce’s notice of initiation.

Disclosure of Calculations

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed for these final 
results within five days of the date of publication of this notice to 
parties in this proceeding, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protections (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of 
this review. We will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on 
the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties 
calculated for each importer's examined sales and the total entered 
value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice will apply to entries 
of subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in 
these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not 
know that the merchandise they sold to the intermediary (e.g., a 
reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United 
States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed 
entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for ARLANXEO Brasil 
S.A. will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established 
in the final results of this review; (2) for merchandise exported by 
companies not covered in this review but covered in a prior segment of 
this proceeding, the cash deposit will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding in which the company participated; (3) if the exporter is 
not a firm covered in this review or the original investigation, but 
the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
established for the most recently completed segment for the producer of 
the subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
producers or exporters will continue to be 19.61 percent, the all-
others rate established in the less-than-fair-value investigation.\11\ 
These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order (APO)

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to APO 
of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary 
information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary 
information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written 
notification of return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to 
judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with 
the regulations

[[Page 38849]]

and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.

Notice to Interested Parties

    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: June 23, 2020.

Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
