Welded Carbon Steel Standard Pipes and Tubes From India: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2018-2019, 14872-14873 [2021-05740]

Download as PDF 14872 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 52 / Friday, March 19, 2021 / Notices permits Commerce to postpone the preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation if: (A) The petitioner 2 makes a timely request for a postponement; or (B) Commerce concludes that the parties concerned are cooperating, that the investigation is extraordinarily complicated, and that additional time is necessary to make a preliminary determination. Under 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner must submit a request for postponement 25 days or more before the scheduled date of the preliminary determination and must state the reasons for the request. Commerce will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request. On March 9, 2021, the petitioner submitted a timely request that Commerce postpone the preliminary determinations of the CVD investigations of granular PTFE resin from India and Russia.3 The petitioner stated that it requests postponement ‘‘to allow Commerce to fully analyze respondents’ questionnaire responses, and any other filings such as new subsidy allegations and benchmark factual information, prior to the preliminary determination.’’ 4 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner has stated the reasons for requesting a postponement of the preliminary determinations, and Commerce finds no compelling reason to deny the request. Therefore, in accordance with section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, Commerce is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determinations to no later than 130 days after the date on which these investigations were initiated, i.e., June 28, 2021.5 Pursuant to section 705(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determinations of these investigations will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determinations. This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1). 2 The petitioner is Daikin America, Inc. Petitioner’s Letter, ‘‘Granular Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Resin from India and Russia: Request to Extend Preliminary Determinations,’’ dated March 9, 2021. 4 Id. 5 Postponing the preliminary determination to 130 days after initiation would place the deadline on Saturday, June 26, 2021. Commerce’s practice dictates that where a deadline falls on a weekend or federal holiday, the appropriate deadline is the next business day.

Final Results of the Administrative Review

    We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margin

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed in connection with 
these final results to parties in this proceeding within five days 
after public announcement of the final results, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    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. For Garg Tube, we calculated importer-specific assessment 
rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping 
calculated for each importer's examined sales and the total entered 
value of those sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\6\ Where 
an importer-specific assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 
percent), the entries by that importer will be liquidated without 
reference to antidumping duties. For entries of subject merchandise 
during the POR produced by Garg Tube for which it did not know the 
merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate 
for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ In these final results, Commerce applied the assessment rate 
calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation 
of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in 
Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 
(February 14, 2012).
    \7\ See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with its recent notice,\8\ Commerce intends to issue 
assessment instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 days after the date 
of publication of the final results of this review in the Federal 
Register. If a timely summons is filed at the U.S. Court of 
International Trade, the assessment instructions will direct CBP not to 
liquidate relevant entries until the time for parties to file a request 
for a statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 90 days of 
publication).

Instructions After 15 Days in Applicable Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Proceedings, 86 FR 3995 (January

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication in the Federal Register of this notice for all shipments of 
pipe and tube from India entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the date of publication as provided by section 
751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Garg Tube will be 
equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final 
results of the review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or 
exporters not covered in this review but covered in a prior completed 
segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be 
the company-specific rate published in the completed segment for the 
most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this 
review, a prior review, or the original investigation but the producer 
has been covered in a priorcompleted segment of this proceeding, then 
the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the completed 
segment for the most recent period for the producer of the merchandise; 
(4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will 
continue to be 7.08 percent, the all-others rate established in the 
less-than-fair-value investigation for this proceeding.\9\ These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

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 the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also 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 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 
terms of an APO is a violation subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties
