Circular Welded Carbon Steel Standard Pipe and Tube Products from Turkey: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Final Determination of No Shipments; 2018-2019, 15190-15192 [2021-05814]

Download as PDF 15190 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 53 / Monday, March 22, 2021 / Notices producers of subject merchandise that have not received their own separate rate above, the cash deposit rate will be the cash deposit rate established for the China-wide entity; and (3) for all nonChinese exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own separate rate above, the cash deposit rate will be the cash deposit rate applicable to the Chinese exporter/ producer combination that supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These suspension of liquidation instructions will remain in effect until further notice. To determine the cash deposit rate, Commerce normally adjusts the estimated weighted-average dumping margin by the amount of domestic subsidy pass-through and export subsidies determined in a companion countervailing duty (CVD) proceeding when CVD provisional measures are in effect. Accordingly, where Commerce makes an affirmative determination for domestic subsidy pass-through or export subsidies, Commerce offsets the calculated estimated weighted-average dumping margin by the appropriate rates. Commerce continues to find that SKY and all non-individually-examined companies found eligible for a separate rate qualify for a double-remedy adjustment. Further, we have continued to adjust the cash deposit rates for SKY, Wuyi Xilinde, all non-individuallyexamined separate rate companies, and the China-wide entity for export subsidies in the companion CVD investigation by the appropriate export subsidy rates 6 as indicated in the above chart. However, suspension of liquidation according to provisional measures in the companion CVD case has been discontinued effective December 26, 2020; therefore, we are not instructing CBP to collect cash deposits based upon the adjusted estimated weighted-average dumping margin for those export subsidies and double remedy adjustment at this time. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES 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 the final determination in this proceeding 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 6 See Memorandum, ‘‘Non-Refillable Steel Cylinders from the People’s Republic of China: Double Remedies and Export Subsidy Offset Calculation,’’ dated concurrently with this notice. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:46 Mar 19, 2021 Jkt 253001 material injury, by reason of imports, or sales (or the likelihood of sales) for importation of non-refillable cylinders no later than 45 days after our final determination. If the ITC determines that material injury or threat of material injury does not exist, the proceeding will be terminated, and all cash deposits will be refunded. If the ITC determines that material injury or threat of material injury does exist, Commerce will issue an antidumping duty 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. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to an 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 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 terms of an APO is a violation subject to sanction. Notification to Interested Parties This determination is issued and published in accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(c). Dated: March 15, 2021.

No parties commented on this determination. For the final results of review, we continue to find that these companies made no shipment of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Final Results of the Review As a result of this administrative review, we are assigning the following weighted-average dumping margins to the manufacturers/exporters listed below for the period of May 1, 2018 through April 30, 2019: Producers/exporters Borusan Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S./ Borusan Istikbal Ticaret T.A.S Borusan Birlesik Boru Fabrikalari San ve Tic ...............................

Assessment Rates jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), Commerce has determined, 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.10 Commerce calculated importer-specific ad valorem AD assessment rates for Borusan by aggregating for each importer identified for the reported sales, the total amount of dumping calculated for the sales for which that importer was identified and dividing each of these amounts by the total entered value of those sales. Commerce will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review where an importer-specific assessment rate is not zero or de minimis. In this review, we have 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 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. For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Borusan for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States, and for entries associated with the seven companies for which Commerce found ‘‘no shipments’’ during the POR, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate such unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transactions.11 10 In these final results, Commerce applied the assessment rate calculation methodology adopted in Antidumping Proceeding: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012). 11 For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:46 Mar 19, 2021 Jkt 253001 Consistent with its recent notice,12 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). Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of this notice of final results of administrative review in the Federal Register for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after the date of publication of the notice, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Borusan is equal to the weighted-average dumping margin determined in the final results of review; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed in the table above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding; (3) if the exporter was not covered in this review, a prior completed review, or the investigation, but the producer was covered, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of the subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 14.74 percent ad valorem, the all-others rate established in the investigation in this proceeding.13 These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties 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 POR entries. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of 12 See Notice of Discontinuation of Policy to Issue Liquidation Instructions After 15 Days in Applicable Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Proceedings, 86 FR 3995 (January 2021). 13 See Antidumping Duty Order; Welded Carbon Steel Standard Pipe and Tube Products from Turkey, 51 FR 17784 (May 15, 1986).

Disclosure

    Commerce intends to disclose the calculations performed for these 
final results of review within five days of the date of publication of 
this notice in the

[[Page 15192]]

Federal Register, 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 has determined, 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.\10\ Commerce calculated importer-specific ad valorem AD 
assessment rates for Borusan by aggregating for each importer 
identified for the reported sales, the total amount of dumping 
calculated for the sales for which that importer was identified and 
dividing each of these amounts by the total entered value of those 
sales. Commerce will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review where an importer-specific 
assessment rate is not zero or de minimis.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ In these final results, Commerce applied the assessment 
rate calculation methodology adopted in Antidumping Proceeding: 
Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment 
Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 
8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In this review, we have 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 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.
    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Borusan for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the 
United States, and for entries associated with the seven companies for 
which Commerce found ``no shipments'' during the POR, Commerce will 
instruct CBP to liquidate such unreviewed entries at the all-others 
rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in 
the transactions.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ For a full discussion of this clarification, see 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of 
Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with its recent notice,\12\ 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Liquidation Instructions After 15 Days in Applicable Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Proceedings, 86 FR 3995 (January 
2021).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of this notice of final results of administrative review in 
the Federal Register for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, 
or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after the date of 
publication of the notice, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the 
Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Borusan is equal to the weighted-
average dumping margin determined in the final results of review; (2) 
for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed in the 
table above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding; (3) if the exporter was not covered in this review, a prior 
completed review, or the investigation, but the producer was covered, 
the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the most recently 
completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of the subject 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be 14.74 percent ad valorem, the all-others 
rate established in the investigation in this proceeding.\13\ These 
cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    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 POR entries. Failure to comply with this requirement 
could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement of 
antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled 
antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as the only 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 terms 
of an APO is a sanctionable violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).

    Dated: March 15, 2021.
Christian Marsh,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
