These formed or forged pipe fittings are used to join sections in piping systems where conditions require permanent, welded connections, as distinguished from fittings based on other fastening methods (e.g., threaded, grooved, or bolted fittings). Carbon steel butt-weld pipe fittings are currently classified under subheading 7307.93.30 of the HTSUS. The HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes. The written product description remains dispositive. Final Determination of No Shipments As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received a statement from Solidbend reporting that it had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR and this statement was consistent with the information we received from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.5 No party commented on our preliminary no shipment finding with respect to Solidbend, and no party submitted record evidence that calls this finding into question. Therefore, for these final results, we continue to find that Solidbend did not have any shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Disclosure Normally, Commerce discloses to interested parties the calculations performed in connection with the final results of review within five days of its public announcement, or if there is no public announcement, within five days of the date of publication of this notice, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). However, because the company under review had no reviewable shipments, there are no calculations to disclose. Assessment Rates We have not calculated any assessment rates in this administrative review. Based on the record evidence we have determined that Solidbend had no shipments of subject merchandise, and, therefore, pursuant to Commerce’s assessment practice, any suspended entries during the POR from Solidbend will be liquidated at the China-wide entity rate (i.e., 182.90 percent).6 5 See Preliminary Results, 85 FR at 18556. a full discussion of this practice, see NonMarket Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). 6 For E:\FR\FM\24NON1.SGM 24NON1 74980 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 227 / Tuesday, November 24, 2020 / Notices Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 2, 2020, Commerce published the Preliminary Results of the 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on carbon steel 
butt-weld pipe fittings (butt-weld pipe fittings) from the People's 
Republic of China (China).\1\ We invited parties to submit comments on 
the Preliminary Results. No party submitted comments. Accordingly, the 
final results remain unchanged from the Preliminary Results.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On April 24, 2020, Commerce tolled all deadlines in administrative 
reviews by 50 days, thereby extending the deadline for these final 
results until September 21, 2020.\2\ On July 21, 2020, Commerce tolled

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the order consists of certain carbon 
steel butt-weld pipe fittings, having an inside diameter of less than 
14 inches, imported in either finished or unfinished form. These formed 
or forged pipe fittings are used to join sections in piping systems 
where conditions require permanent, welded connections, as 
distinguished from fittings based on other fastening methods (e.g., 
threaded, grooved, or bolted fittings). Carbon steel butt-weld pipe 
fittings are currently classified under subheading 7307.93.30 of the 
HTSUS. The HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs 
purposes. The written product description remains dispositive.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received a statement from 
Solidbend reporting that it had no shipments of subject merchandise to 
the United States during the POR and this statement was consistent with 
the information we received from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.\5\ 
No party commented on our preliminary no shipment finding with respect 
to Solidbend, and no party submitted record evidence that calls this 
finding into question. Therefore, for these final results, we continue 
to find that Solidbend did not have any shipments of subject 
merchandise to the United States during the POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Preliminary Results, 85 FR at 18556.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure

    Normally, Commerce discloses to interested parties the calculations 
performed in connection with the final results of review within five 
days of its public announcement, or if there is no public announcement, 
within five days of the date of publication of this notice, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). However, because the company under 
review had no reviewable shipments, there are no calculations to 
disclose.

Assessment Rates

    We have not calculated any assessment rates in this administrative 
review. Based on the record evidence we have determined that Solidbend 
had no shipments of subject merchandise, and, therefore, pursuant to 
Commerce's assessment practice, any suspended entries during the POR 
from Solidbend will be liquidated at the China-wide entity rate (i.e., 
182.90 percent).\6\

[[Page 74980]]

Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions 15 days after the 
publication date of the final results of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Non-Market 
Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously investigated or reviewed 
Chinese and non-Chinese exporters not listed above that have separate 
rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific 
rate published for the most recently-completed segment of this 
proceeding; (2) for all Chinese manufacturers or exporters of subject 
merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, 
the cash deposit rate will continue to be 182.90 percent, the China-
wide rate determined in the less-than-fair-value investigation; \7\ (3) 
for all non-Chinese exporters of subject merchandise that have not 
received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
applicable to the Chinese exporter that supplied that non-Chinese 
exporter. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain 
in effect until further notice.

Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value; Certain Carbon Steel 
Butt-Weld Pipe Fittings from the People's Republic of China, 57 FR

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notification to Importers

    This notice also 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

    This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under the 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 
term of an APO is a sanctionable violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these final results in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(h).
