SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 1, 2020, Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice 
of opportunity to request an administrative review of the AD order on 
welded line pipe and welded structural pipe from Turkey for the POR.\1\ 
Commerce received a timely request from American Cast Iron Pipe 
Company, Berg Steel Pipe Corp., Berg Spiral Pipe Corp., Dura-Bond 
Industries, Stupp Corporation and Welspun Global Trade LLC, 
individually and as members of the American Line Pipe Producers 
Association; Greens Bayou Pipe Mill, LP; JS W Steel (USA) Inc.; Skyline 
Steel; and Trinity Products LLC (collectively, the petitioners), in 
accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(b), to conduct an administrative review 
of this AD order for 16 companies.\2\ Commerce received no other 
requests for administrative review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or 
Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative 
Review, 85 FR 25394 (May 1, 2020).
    \2\ See Petitioners' Letter, ``Large Diameter Welded Pipe from 
Turkey: Request for Administrative Review,'' dated June 1, 2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On July 10, 2020, Commerce published in the Federal Register a 
notice of initiation with respect to these companies.\3\ On October 7, 
2020, the petitioners timely withdrew their request for an 
administrative review for all 16 companies.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 85 FR 41540 (July 10, 2020).
    \4\ See Petitioners' Letter, ``Large Diameter Welded Pipe from 
the Republic of Turkey: Withdrawal of Request for Administrative 
Review,'' dated October 7, 2020.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rescission of Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party or parties 
that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the 
date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested 
review. The petitioners withdrew their request for review by the 90-day 
deadline, and no other party requested an administrative review of this 
order. Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative review of the AD 
order on welded line pipe and welded structural pipe from Turkey 
covering the POR in its entirety.

Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Because Commerce 
is rescinding this administrative review in its entirety, the entries 
to which this administrative review pertained shall be assessed at 
rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties 
required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for 
consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). Commerce 
intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as the only 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 may result in the presumption that reimbursement 
of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double 
antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of the return/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

    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
