SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On November 12, 2015, Commerce published its Final Results in the 2013– 2014 administrative review of steel threaded rod from China.1 During the review, Commerce selected Thailand as the primary surrogate country, finding that data from Thailand provided the best available information on the record to value the RMB/IFI Group’s reported factors of production (FOPs). Commerce valued hours of labor with data from the National Statistical Office of Thailand’s Labor Force Survey of the Whole Kingdom (NSO or NSO data) from the second and third quarters of 2013, because it found the data to be more industry-specific and contemporaneous with the POR than the alternative data on the record, i.e., International Labor Organization Chapter 6A data.2 In addition, Commerce derived surrogate financial ratios from the financial statements of three Thai companies. In the calculation of surrogate financial ratios, Commerce categorized selling, general, and administrative (SG&A) labor-related line items as SG&A expenses. As a result, the SG&A surrogate financial ratio numerator included these line items’ values, along with other SG&A expenses, and the denominator represented the total cost of manufacturing, i.e., the sum of raw materials, manufacturing labor, energy, manufacturing overhead, and finished goods.3 The RMB/IFI Group challenged the Final Results, contesting Commerce’s selection of Thailand as the primary surrogate country, selection of Global Trade Atlas data from Thailand to value steel threaded rod inputs, and decision not to adjust the surrogate financial ratios.4 On January 29, 2020, the CIT issued the Remand Order, in which it sustained Commerce’s selection of Thailand as the primary surrogate country and calculation of the RMB/IFI Group’s steel threaded rod FOP.5 However, the CIT held that Commerce’s decision not to make any adjustments to the calculation of the surrogate financial ratios was inadequately explained,6 and it remanded Commerce’s calculation of the surrogate financial ratios as related to labor for further explanation or reconsideration. In particular, the CIT directed Commerce to explain ‘‘the basis for finding record evidence that allows it to conclude that it could capture, and not overstate, labor costs by applying the NSO quarterly data and, as a result, decline to adjust the surrogate financial ratios.’’ 7 The CIT also stated that ‘‘{o}n remand, Commerce may wish to reopen the record.’’ 8 On February 25 and 26, 2020, Commerce opened the record and placed additional reports from Thailand’s NSO on the record. Commerce received no comments on these reports. On April 23, 2020, Commerce issued the Final Remand Results 9 and determined that, because the NSO data were industry-specific and contemporaneous with the POR, it was appropriate to rely on the NSO data to value labor, and to treat labor-related SG&A costs in the same manner as the surrogate companies did in their financial statements. Moreover, we found that the NSO data did not provide the information necessary to accurately adjust the surrogate financial ratios to account for any potential overstatement in labor costs because the record lacked evidence to support a finding as to what extent, or by what percentage, the NSO data also covered SG&A labor.10 Moreover, given that the RMB/IFI Group did not report labor hours associated with SG&A staff, we declined to assume 4 Id. at 2. at 25. 6 Id. at 21. 7 Id. at 24. 8 Id. 9 See Final Results of Redetermination Pursuant to Court Remand in Jiaxing Brother Fastener Co., Ltd.

Certain Oil Country Tubular Goods From the Socialist Republic of 
Vietnam: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2017-
2018

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) finds that exporters of 
oil country tubular goods (OCTG) from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam 
(Vietnam) did not sell subject merchandise in the United States at 
prices below normal value during the period of review (POR) September 
1, 2017 through August 31, 2018.

DATES: Applicable July 10, 2020.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Fred Baker, AD/CVD Operations, Office 
VI, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, 
DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-2924.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Commerce is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping 
duty order on OCTG from Vietnam in accordance with section 751(a) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Commerce initiated this 
review on November 15, 2018.\1\ On November 15, 2019, Commerce 
published the Preliminary Results of this administrative review.\2\ At 
that time, we invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary 
Results. On December 16, 2019, we received case briefs from U.S. Steel 
(the petitioner), Maverick Tube Corporation and Tenaris Bay City, Inc. 
(the domestic interested parties), and SeAH Steel VINA Corporation 
(SSV).\3\ However, on April 10, 2020, we rejected the case briefs from 
the petitioner and the domestic interested parties because they 
contained new factual information filed after the due date for filing 
new factual information.\4\ The petitioner and the domestic interested 
parties submitted redacted versions of their case briefs on April 14, 
2020.\5\ On December 30, 2019,

[[Page 41553]]

the domestic interested parties and SSV submitted rebuttal briefs.\6\ 
On April 10, 2020, Commerce rejected SSV's rebuttal brief because it 
contained new factual information filed after the due date for filing 
new factual information.\7\ SSV submitted a redacted version of its 
rebuttal brief on April 14, 2020.\8\ On March 12, 2020, Commerce 
extended the deadline for the final results of review until May 13, 
2020.\9\ On April 24, 2020, Commerce tolled all deadlines in 
administrative reviews by 50 days, thereby extending the deadline for 
these results until July 2, 2020.\10\

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made 
certain changes to the margin calculation for the respondent. For a 
discussion of these changes, see the ``Margin Calculations'' section of 
the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Final Results of Review

    Commerce determines that the following weighted-average dumping 
margin exists for the period September 1, 2017 through August 31,  
2018:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ Commerce initiated a review of both SSV and Pusan Pipe 
America, Inc. (Pusan Pipe), but the record shows that Pusan Pipe is 
a U.S. importer of OCTG that is affiliated with SSV, and does not 
produce OCTG. See SSV's December 19, 2018 Section A Questionnaire 
Response at 1. Therefore, we have not calculated a rate for Pusan 
Pipe.

Assessment

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), Commerce will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of 
this review. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 
15 days after the date of publication of the final results of this 
administrative review in the Federal Register.
    Consistent with Commerce's assessment practice in non-market 
economy cases, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales 
database submitted by companies individually examined during the 
administrative review, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate such 
entries at the Vietnam-wide rate. Additionally, if Commerce determines 
that an exporter under review had no shipments of subject merchandise, 
any suspended entries that entered under the exporter's case number 
(i.e., at that exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the Vietnam-wide 
rate.\13\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise from Vietnam entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For SSV, a zero 
cash deposit rate; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed 
Vietnamese and non-Vietnamese exporters not listed above that received 
a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit 
rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the 
most-recently completed segment of this proceeding in which the 
exporter was reviewed; (3) for all Vietnamese exporters of subject 
merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the 
Vietnam-wide entity, which is 111.47 percent; \14\ and (4) for all non-
Vietnamese exporters of subject merchandise which have not received 
their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to 
the Vietnamese exporter that supplied that non-Vietnamese exporter with 
the subject merchandise. These deposit requirements, when imposed, 
shall remain in effect until further notice.

Disclosure

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

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 POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement 
of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled 
antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the

[[Page 41554]]

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 the return or destruction of APO 
materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an 
APO is a sanctionable violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).

    Dated: July 2, 2020.
