Phosphate fertilizers in solid form are covered whether granular, prilled (i.e., pelletized), or in other solid form (e.g., powdered). The covered merchandise includes phosphate fertilizers in the following forms: Ammonium dihydrogenorthophosphate or monoammonium phosphate (MAP), chemical formula NH4H2PO4; diammonium hydrogenorthophosphate or diammonium phosphate (DAP), chemical formula (NH4)2HPO4; normal superphosphate (NSP), also known as ordinary superphosphate or single superphosphate, chemical formula Ca(H2PO4)2–CaSO4; concentrated superphosphate, also known as double, treble, or triple superphosphate (TSP), chemical formula Ca(H2PO4)2–H2O; and proprietary formulations of MAP, DAP, NSP, and TSP. The covered merchandise also includes other fertilizer formulations incorporating phosphorous and non-phosphorous plant nutrient components, whether chemicallybonded, granulated (e.g., when multiple components are incorporated into granules through, e.g., a slurry process), or compounded (e.g., when multiple components are compacted together under high pressure), including nitrogen, phosphate, sulfur (NPS) fertilizers, nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium (NPK) fertilizers, nitric phosphate (also known as nitrophosphate) fertilizers, ammoniated superphosphate fertilizers, and proprietary formulations thereof that may or may not include other nonphosphorous plant nutrient components. For phosphate fertilizers that contain non-phosphorous plant nutrient components, such as nitrogen, potassium, sulfur, zinc, or other non-phosphorous components, the entire article is covered, including the non-phosphorous content, provided that the phosphorous content (measured by available diphosphorous pentaoxide, chemical formula P2O5) is at least 5% by actual weight. 48 See Temporary Rule Modifying AD/CVD Service Requirements Due to COVID–19; Extension of Effective Period, 85 FR 41363 (July 10, 2020). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:10 Jul 22, 2020 Jkt 250001 Phosphate fertilizers that are otherwise subject to these investigations are included when commingled (i.e., mixed or blended) with phosphate fertilizers from sources not subject to these investigations. Phosphate fertilizers that are otherwise subject to these investigations are included when commingled with substances other than phosphate fertilizers subject to these investigations (e.g., granules containing only non-phosphate fertilizers such as potash or urea). Only the subject component of such commingled products is covered by the scope of these investigations. The following products are specifically excluded from the scope of these investigations: (1) ABC dry chemical powder preparations for fire extinguishers containing MAP or DAP in powdered form; (2) industrial or technical grade MAP in white crystalline form with available P2O5 content of at least 60% by actual weight; (3) industrial or technical grade diammonium phosphate in white crystalline form with available P2O5 content of at least 50% by actual weight; (4) liquid ammonium polyphosphate fertilizers; (5) dicalcium phosphate, chemical formula CaHPO4; (6) monocalcium phosphate, chemical formula CaH4P2O8; (7) trisodium phosphate, chemical formula Na3PO4; (8) sodium tripolyphosphate, chemical formula Na5P3O10; (9) prepared baking powders containing sodium bicarbonate and any form of phosphate; (10) animal or vegetable fertilizers not containing phosphate fertilizers otherwise covered by the scope of these investigations; (11) phosphoric acid, chemical formula H3PO4. The Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) numbers for covered phosphate fertilizers include, but are not limited to: 7722–76–1 (MAP); 7783–28–0 (DAP); and 65996–95–4 (TSP). The covered products may also be identified by Nitrogen-Phosphate-Potash composition, including but not limited to: NP 11–52–0 (MAP); NP 18–46–0 (DAP); and NP 0–46–0 (TSP). The covered merchandise is currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) at subheadings 3103.11.0000; 3103.19.0000; 3105.20.0000; 3105.30.0000; 3105.40.0010; 3105.40.0050; 3105.51.0000; and 3105.59.0000.

Therefore, because we find that Borusan had shipments during this POR, we have not made a preliminary determination of no-shipments with respect to Borusan Istikbal. Furthermore, eleven companies, Borusan Birlesik; Borusan Gemlik; BMBYH; Borusan Ihracat; Borusan Ithicat; BMYH; Tubeco; Erbosan; Kale Baglanti; Kale Baglann; and Istikbal Ticaret remain subject to this administrative review because none of these eleven companies: (1) Was selected as a mandatory respondent; 13 (2) was the subject of a withdrawal of request for review; (3) requested to participate as a voluntary respondent; or (4) submitted a claim of no shipments. As such, these three companies remain as unexamined respondents. Preliminary Results of Review As a result of this review, we calculated a weighted-average dumping margin of 12.03 percent for Borusan for the period May 1, 2018 through April 30, 2019. We assigned 12.03 percent, the weighted-average dumping margin of the mandatory respondent Borusan to the eleven non-selected companies in these preliminary results, as referenced below.

If Borusan’s weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) in the final results of this review, we will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where Borusan’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. With respect to Cinar Boru, Noksel Selik, Cayirova, Yucel, Yucelboru, Toscelik Endustrisi A.S., Tosyali Ticaret, and Toscelik Metal, if we continue to find that these companies had no shipments of subject merchandise in the final results, we will instruct CBP to liquidate any existing entries of merchandise produced by these companies, but exported by other parties, at the rate for the intermediate reseller, if available, or at the all-others rate.14 In this review, we have preliminarily calculated weightedaverage dumping margin of 12.03 percent for Borusan. When only one weighted-average dumping margin for the individually investigated respondents is not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available, the rate for companies that we did not individually examine will be equal to that single weighted-average dumping margin. Accordingly, we have preliminarily assigned to Borusan Birlesik; Borusan Gemlik; BMBYH; Borusan Ihracat; Borusan Ithicat; BMYH; Tubeco; Erbosan; Kale Baglanti; Kale Baglann; and Istikbal Ticaret, companies not individually examined in this review a margin of 12.03 percent, which is the calculated weighted average dumping margin of Borusan.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Commerce is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping 
duty order on welded carbon steel standard pipe and tube products 
(welded pipe and tube) from Turkey. The period of review (POR) is May 
1, 2018 through April 30, 2019. Commerce published the notice of 
initiation of this administrative review on July 15, 2019.\1\ The 
preliminary results are listed below in the section titled 
``Preliminary Results of Review.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 84 FR 33739 (July 15, 2019).

(Tosyali Ticaret), and Toscelik Metal Ticaret A.S. (Toscelik Metal) 
(collectively, Toscelik); \3\ Borusan Birlesik Boru Fabrikalari San ve 
Tic (Borusan Birlesik); Borusan Gemlik Boru Tesisleri A.S. (Borusan 
Gemlik); Borusan Holding (BMBYH), Borusan Ihracat Ithalat ve Dagitim

Baglann Teknolojileri San. Ve Tic. A.S. (Kale Baglann), Borusan 
Istikbal Ticaret (Istikbal Ticaret) and Cinar Boru Profil San. ve Tic. 
As (Cinar Boru). The sole mandatory respondent in this administrative 
review is Borusan.\4\ On January 16, 2020, we extended the deadline for 
the preliminary results by 117 days to May 27, 2020.\5\ Moreover, on 
April 24, 2020, Commerce tolled all deadlines in administrative reviews 
by 50 days, thereby extending the deadline for these results until July 
16, 2020.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ In prior segments of this proceeding, we treated Borusan 
Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. and Borusan Istikbal Ticaret 
T.A.S. as a single entity. See, e.g., Welded Carbon Steel Standard 
Pipe and Tube Products from Turkey: Final Results of Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Review and Final Determination of No Shipments; 
2013-2014, 80 FR 76674, 76674 n.2 (December 10, 2015). We 
preliminarily determine that there is no evidence on the record for 
altering our treatment of Borusan Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret 
A.S. and Borusan Istikbal Ticaret T.A.S., as a single entity. The 
record does not support treating the following companies as part of 
the Borusan Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S./Borusan Istikbal 
Ticaret T.A.S. entity: (1) Borusan Birlesik; (2) Borusan Gemlik; (3) 
Borusan Ihracat; (4) Borusan Ithicat; and (5) Tubeco. Accordingly, 
as discussed infra, each of these five companies will be assigned 
the rate applicable to companies not selected for individual 
examination in this review.
    \3\ In prior segments of this proceeding, we treated Toscelik 
Profil ve Sac Endustrisi A.S., Tosyali Dis Ticaret A.S., and 
Toscelik Metal as a single company. See, e.g., Welded Carbon Steel 
Standard Pipe and Tube Products from Turkey: Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Final Determination of No 
Shipments; 2013-2014, 80 FR 76674, 76674 n.2 (December 10, 2015). We 
preliminarily determine that there is no evidence on the record for 
altering our treatment of Toscelik Profil ve Sac Endustrisi A.S., 
Tosyali Dis Ticaret A.S., and Toscelik Metal as a single company.

(Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is welded pipe and tube. The 
welded pipe and tube subject to the order is currently classifiable 
under subheading 7306.30.10.00, 7306.30.50.25, 7306.30.50.32, 
7306.30.50.40, 7306.30.50.55, 7306.30.50.85, and 7306.30.50.90 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). The HTSUS 
subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes. A full 
description of the scope of the order is contained in the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum.

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 751 
of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export price is 
calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Normal value 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. A list of the 
topics included in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is included in 
the Appendix to this notice.
    The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is 
made available to the public 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 found at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. The signed and the electronic versions of the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    On June 26, 2019, and July 22, 2019, Cinar Boru and Noksel Selik, 
respectively, submitted letters to Commerce certifying that they had no 
sales, shipments, or entries of the subject merchandise to the United 
States during the POR.\8\ Similarly, on July 30, 2019, Cayirova, Yucel, 
and Yucelboru submitted a letter to Commerce certifying that they each 
individually had no sales, shipments, or entries of the subject 
merchandise to the United States during the POR.\9\ Moreover, on July 
31, 2019, Toscelik submitted a letter to Commerce certifying that it 
had no sales, shipments, or entries of the subject merchandise to the 
United States during the POR.\10\ On July 18, 2019, Commerce obtained 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data for U.S. imports of 
Circular Welded Carbon Steel Standard Pipe and Tube Products From 
Turkey entering under case number A-489-501 during the period May 1, 
2018 through April 30, 2019, for all parties for which it initiated 
this administrative review. \11\ We received no information from CBP 
regarding the existence of entries of subject merchandise from these 
companies during the POR. Based on their certifications and our 
analysis of CBP information, we preliminarily determine that Cinar 
Boru, Noksel Selik, Cayirova, Yucel, Yucelboru, Toscelik Endustrisi 
A.S., Tosyali Ticaret, and Toscelik Metal each had no reviewable 
transactions during the POR. Consistent with our practice, we are not 
preliminarily rescinding the review with respect to these eight 
companies, but, rather, we will complete the review for these companies 
and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of 
this review.\12\ Further, while we received no information from CBP 
regarding the existence of entries of subject merchandise from Borusan 
Istikbal during the POR, we continue to find Borusan Istikbal to be 
part of the single entity, Borusan, and we find no record

[[Page 44511]]

evidence that warrants altering this treatment. Therefore, because we 
find that Borusan had shipments during this POR, we have not made a 
preliminary determination of no-shipments with respect to Borusan 
Istikbal. Furthermore, eleven companies, Borusan Birlesik; Borusan 
Gemlik; BMBYH; Borusan Ihracat; Borusan Ithicat; BMYH; Tubeco; Erbosan; 
Kale Baglanti; Kale Baglann; and Istikbal Ticaret remain subject to 
this administrative review because none of these eleven companies: (1) 
Was selected as a mandatory respondent; \13\ (2) was the subject of a 
withdrawal of request for review; (3) requested to participate as a 
voluntary respondent; or (4) submitted a claim of no shipments. As 
such, these three companies remain as unexamined respondents.

Preliminary Results of Review

    As a result of this review, we calculated a weighted-average 
dumping margin of 12.03 percent for Borusan for the period May 1, 2018 
through April 30, 2019. We assigned 12.03 percent, the weighted-average 
dumping margin of the mandatory respondent Borusan to the eleven non-
selected companies in these preliminary results, as referenced below.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). We intend to issue 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final 
results of this review.
    If Borusan's weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de 
minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) in the final results of this 
review, we will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the 
basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the 
importer's examined sales and the total entered value of the sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where Borusan's weighted-average 
dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific 
assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    With respect to Cinar Boru, Noksel Selik, Cayirova, Yucel, 
Yucelboru, Toscelik Endustrisi A.S., Tosyali Ticaret, and Toscelik 
Metal, if we continue to find that these companies had no shipments of 
subject merchandise in the final results, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate any existing entries of merchandise produced by these 
companies, but exported by other parties, at the rate for the 
intermediate reseller, if available, or at the all-others rate.\14\ In 
this review, we have preliminarily calculated weighted-average dumping 
margin of 12.03 percent for Borusan. When only one weighted-average 
dumping margin for the individually investigated respondents is not 
zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available, the rate for 
companies that we did not individually examine will be equal to that 
single weighted-average dumping margin. Accordingly, we have 
preliminarily assigned to Borusan Birlesik; Borusan Gemlik; BMBYH; 
Borusan Ihracat; Borusan Ithicat; BMYH; Tubeco; Erbosan; Kale Baglanti; 
Kale Baglann; and Istikbal Ticaret, companies not individually examined 
in this review a margin of 12.03 percent, which is the calculated 
weighted average dumping margin of Borusan.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of standard pipe and tubes from Turkey entered, or

publication of the final results of this administrative review, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit 
rate for the companies under review will be the rate established in the 
final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de 
minimis, no cash deposit will be required); (2) for merchandise 
exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this review but 
covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate 
will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most 
recently completed segment of this proceeding in which the manufacturer 
or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in 
this review, a prior review, or the less-than-fair-value investigation, 
but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
established for the most recently completed segment of the proceeding 
for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate 
for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 14.74 
percent ad valorem, the all-others rate established in the less-than-
fair-value investigation.\15\ These cash deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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.
    These preliminary results of administrative review are issued and 
published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).
