Scope Comments In accordance with the Preamble to Commerce’s regulations,4 the Initiation Notice set aside a period of time for parties to raise issues regarding product coverage (i.e., scope).5 We received several comments concerning the scope of the antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) investigations of aluminum foil as it appeared in the Initiation Notice. We are currently evaluating the scope comments filed by the interested parties. We intend to issue our preliminary decision regarding the scope of the AD and CVD investigations in the preliminary determinations of the companion AD investigations, the deadline for which is April 27, 2021.6 We will incorporate the scope decisions from the AD investigations into the scope of the final CVD determination for this investigation after considering any relevant comments submitted in scope case and rebuttal briefs.7 3 See Memorandum, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Affirmative Determination in the Countervailing Duty Investigation of Certain Aluminum Foil from the Republic of Turkey,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). 4 See Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties, Final Rule, 62 FR 27296, 27323 (May 19, 1997) (Preamble). 5 See Initiation Notice, 85 FR at 68288. 6 See Certain Aluminum Foil from the Republic of Armenia, Brazil, the Sultanate of Oman, the Russian Federation, and the Republic of Turkey: Postponement of Preliminary Determinations in the Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigations, 86 FR 9909 (February 17, 2021). 7 The deadline for interested parties to submit scope case and rebuttal briefs will be established in the preliminary scope decision memorandum.

For each of the subsidy programs found countervailable, Commerce preliminarily determines that there is a subsidy, i.e., a financial contribution by an ‘‘authority’’ that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.8 Commerce notes that, in making these findings, it relied, in part, on facts available and, because Commerce finds that the Government of Turkey did not act to the best of its ability to respond to Commerce’s requests for information, Commerce drew an adverse inference where appropriate in selecting from among the facts otherwise available.9 For further information, see ‘‘Use of Facts Otherwise Available and Application of Adverse Inferences’’ in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Alignment As noted in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, in accordance with section 705(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(4), Commerce is aligning the final CVD determination in this investigation with the final determination in the companion AD investigation of aluminum foil from Turkey based on a request made by the petitioners.10 Consequently, the final CVD determination will be issued on the same date as the final AD determination, which is currently scheduled to be issued no later than July 12, 2021, unless postponed. All-Others Rate Sections 703(d) and 705(c)(5)(A) of the Act provide that in the preliminary determination, Commerce shall determine an estimated all-others rate for companies not individually examined. This rate shall be an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated subsidy rates established for those companies individually examined, excluding any rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely under section 776 of the Act. 8 See sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act regarding financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding benefit; and section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity. 9 See sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act. 10 See Petitioners’ Letter, ‘‘Countervailing Duty Investigations of Certain Aluminum Foil from the Sultanate of Oman and the Republic of Turkey— Petitioners’ Request to Align Final Countervailing Duty Determinations With The Companion Antidumping Duty Final Determinations,’’ dated February 11, 2021.

Period of Investigation

    The period of investigation is July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020.

Scope of the Investigation

    The products covered by this investigation are seamless pipe and 
redraw hollows from the Czech Republic, less than or equal to 16 inches 
in nominal outside diameter, regardless of wall-thickness, 
manufacturing process, end finish, or surface finish. For a full 
description of the scope of this investigation, see the ``Scope of the

Use of Adverse Facts Available

    As discussed in the Preliminary Determination, Commerce assigned to 
the mandatory respondents in this investigation, Liberty Ostrava A.S. 
and Moravia Steel A.S., estimated weighted-average dumping margins on 
the basis of adverse facts available (AFA), pursuant to sections 776(a) 
and (b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).\6\ There is no 
new information on the record that would cause us to revisit our

warranted with respect to Liberty Ostrava A.S. and Moravia Steel A.S.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Preliminary Determination, 85 FR at 83060.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

All-Others Rates

    As discussed in the Preliminary Determination, Commerce based the 
all-others rate on the simple average of the dumping margins alleged in 
the petition, in accordance with section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act.\7\ We 
made no changes to the selection of the all-others rate for this final 
determination.

Disclosure

    Normally, Commerce discloses to interested parties the calculations 
performed in connection with a final determination, in accordance with 
19 CFR 351.224(b). However, because Commerce applied AFA to both 
mandatory respondents in this investigation, there are no calculations 
to disclose.

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, Commerce will 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to 
suspend liquidation of all appropriate entries of seamless pipe from 
the Czech Republic, as described in the Appendix to this notice, 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after 
December 21, 2021, the date of publication of Preliminary Determination 
in the Federal Register.
    Pursuant to section 735(c)(1)(B)(ii) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.210(d), where appropriate, Commerce will instruct CBP to require a 
cash deposit equal to the estimated weighted-average dumping margin or 
the estimated all-others rate, as follows: (1) The cash deposit rate 
for the respondents listed above will be equal to the company-specific 
estimated weighted-average dumping margin determined in this final 
determination; (2) if the exporter is not a respondent identified above 
but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be equal to the 
company-specific estimated weighted-average dumping margin established 
for that producer of the subject merchandise; and (3) the cash deposit 
rate for all other producers and exporters will be equal to the all-
others estimated weighted-average dumping margin. These suspension-of-
liquidation instructions will remain in effect until further notice.

International Trade Commission Notification

    In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we will notify the 
International Trade Commission (ITC) of the final affirmative 
determination of sales at LTFV. Because Commerce's final determination 
is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the Act, the 
ITC will make its final determination as to whether the domestic 
industry in the United States is materially injured, or threatened with 
material injury, by reason of imports or sales (or the likelihood of 
sales) for importation of seamless pipe from the Czech Republic no 
later than 45 days after this final determination. If the ITC 
determines that such injury does not exist, this proceeding will be 
terminated, and all cash deposits posted will be refunded and 
suspension of liquidation will be lifted. If the ITC determines that 
such injury does exist, Commerce will issue an AD order directing CBP 
to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties on 
all imports of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the effective date of the 
suspension of liquidation, as discussed above in the ``Continuation of 
Suspension of Liquidation'' section.

Appendix--Scope of the Investigation

    The merchandise covered by the scope of this investigation is 
seamless carbon and alloy steel (other than stainless steel) pipes 
and redraw hollows, less than or equal to 16 inches (406.4 mm) in 
nominal outside diameter, regardless of wall-thickness, 
manufacturing process (e.g., hot-finished or cold-drawn), end finish 
(e.g., plain end, beveled end, upset end, threaded, or threaded and 
coupled), or surface finish (e.g., bare, lacquered or coated). 
Redraw hollows are any unfinished carbon or alloy steel (other than 
stainless steel) pipe or ``hollow profiles'' suitable for cold 
finishing operations, such as cold drawing, to meet the American 
Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) or American Petroleum 
Institute (API) specifications referenced below, or comparable 
specifications. Specifically included within the scope are seamless 
carbon and alloy steel (other than stainless steel) standard, line, 
and pressure pipes produced to the ASTM A-53, ASTM A-106, ASTM A-
333, ASTM A-334, ASTM A-589, ASTM A-795, ASTM A-1024, and the API 51 
specifications, or comparable specifications, and meeting the 
physical parameters described above, regardless of application, with 
the exception of the exclusions discussed below.
    Specifically excluded from the scope of the investigation are: 
(1) All pipes meeting aerospace, hydraulic, and bearing tubing 
specifications, including pipe produced to the ASTM A-822 standard; 
(2) all pipes meeting the chemical requirements of ASTM A-335, 
whether finished or unfinished; and (3) unattached couplings. Also 
excluded from the scope of the investigation are (1) all mechanical, 
boiler, condenser and heat exchange tubing, except when such 
products conform to the dimensional requirements, i.e., outside 
diameter and wall thickness, of ASTM A-53, ASTM A-106 or API 51 
specifications. Also excluded from the scope of the investigation 
are: (1) Oil country tubular goods consisting of drill pipe, casing, 
tubing and coupling stock; (2) all pipes meeting the chemical 
requirements of ASTM A-335 regardless of their conformity to the 
dimensional requirements of ASTM A-53, ASTM A-106 or API 5L; and (3) 
the exclusion for ASTM A335 applies to pipes meeting the comparable 
specifications GOST 550-75.
