SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) determines that Cimtas Boru Imalatlari ve Ticaret, Ltd. Sti. (Cimtas), the sole mandatory respondent and only company with suspended entries of subject merchandise during the period of review (POR), did not have reviewable sales during the POR, December 1, 2018, through November 30, 2019. We are deferring, in part, Cimtas’ sales reporting until a subsequent review period. Additionally, Commerce is rescinding, in part, this administrative review with respect to the remaining 18 companies for which we initiated a review because they have no reviewable, suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 17, 2020, Commerce published the Preliminary Results.1 Although we invited parties to comment on the preliminary results of the review,2 no interested party submitted comments. Accordingly, no changes have been made to the Preliminary Results, and no decision memorandum accompanies this Federal Register notice.3 Commerce conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are circular welded carbon and alloy steel (other than stainless steel) pipe of a kind used for oil or gas pipelines (welded line pipe), not more than 24 inches in nominal outside diameter, regardless of wall thickness, length, surface finish, end finish, or stenciling. Welded line pipe is normally produced to the American Petroleum Institute (API) specification 5L, but can be produced to comparable foreign specifications, to proprietary grades, or can be non-graded material. All pipe meeting the physical description set forth above, including multiple-stenciled pipe with an API or comparable foreign specification line pipe stencil is covered by the scope of this order. The welded line pipe that is subject to the order is currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under subheadings 7305.11.1030, 7305.11.5000, 7305.12.1030, 7305.12.5000, 7305.19.1030, 7305.19.5000, 7306.19.1010, 7306.19.1050, 7306.19.5110, and 7306.19.5150.

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review As noted in the Preliminary Results, the record of this administrative review indicates that the 18 companies listed in the appendix to this notice have no reviewable, suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR. It is Commerce’s practice to rescind an administrative review pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3) when there are no reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which liquidation is suspended.4 In the Preliminary Results, we preliminarily determined to rescind this administrative review with respect to the 18 companies that have no reviewable, suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR. We received no comments from interested parties with respect to this record information or the preliminary partial rescission of the administrative review. Therefore, we are rescinding this administrative review, in part, with respect to the 18 companies that have no reviewable entries during the POR. Partial Deferral of Administrative Review As noted in the Preliminary Results, we determined that there are no reviewable sales to an unaffiliated U.S. customer related to Cimtas’ POR entries of subject merchandise and preliminarily determined to defer Cimtas’ sales reporting until a subsequent review period.5 We received no comments from interested parties with respect to this record information. Therefore, we continue to find that Cimtas has no reviewable sales during this POR and we are deferring Cimtas’ reporting of its sales to the subsequent review, contingent upon receiving a request for review of Cimtas. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Assessment Rates We will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate any suspended entries of subject merchandise for the 18 companies listed 4 See, e.g., Forged Steel Fittings from Taiwan: Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2018–2019, 85 FR 71317, 71318 (November 9, 2020); see also Certain Circular Welded NonAlloy Steel Pipe from Mexico: Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2016– 2017, 83 FR 54084 (October 26, 2018). 5 See Preliminary Results, 85 FR at 81878; see also Memorandum, ‘‘Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Welded Line Pipe from the Republic of Turkey: Business Proprietary Information (BPI) Related to the Preliminary Results,’’ dated December 17, 2020.

Consistent with its recent notice,6 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). As Commerce has made a final determination to defer the review with respect to Cimtas’ suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR, these entries will remain suspended until completion of the ongoing review of the antidumping duty order of welded line pipe from Turkey for the period December 1, 2019, through November 30, 2020.7 When Commerce completes its review and issues final results for the period December 1, 2019, through November 30, 2020, we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on and liquidate Cimtas’ suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR based on the final results of that review. If Commerce receives a timely withdrawal of the request to review Cimtas and rescinds the review with respect to Cimtas for the period December 1, 2019, through November 30, 2020, we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on and liquidate Cimtas’ suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR at the cash deposit rate in effect at the time of entry. Cash Deposit Requirements As Commerce has proceeded to a final rescission, in part, and final deferral, in part, of this administrative review, no cash deposit rates will change. Accordingly, the current cash deposit requirements 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 review period.

Timely written notification of 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.

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

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are circular welded carbon and 
alloy steel (other than stainless steel) pipe of a kind used for oil or 
gas pipelines (welded line pipe), not more than 24 inches in nominal 
outside diameter, regardless of wall thickness, length, surface finish, 
end finish, or stenciling. Welded line pipe is normally produced to the 
American Petroleum Institute (API) specification 5L, but can be 
produced to comparable foreign specifications, to proprietary grades, 
or can be non-graded material. All pipe meeting the physical 
description set forth above, including multiple-stenciled pipe with an 
API or comparable foreign specification line pipe stencil is covered by 
the scope of this order.
    The welded line pipe that is subject to the order is currently 
classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS) under subheadings 7305.11.1030, 7305.11.5000, 7305.12.1030,

7306.19.5110, and 7306.19.5150. The subject merchandise may also enter 
in HTSUS 7305.11.1060 and 7305.12.1060. While the HTSUS subheadings are

convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope 
of the order is dispositive.

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, the record of this 
administrative review indicates that the 18 companies listed in the 
appendix to this notice have no reviewable, suspended entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR. It is Commerce's practice to 
rescind an administrative review pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3) when 
there are no reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the POR 
for which liquidation is suspended.\4\ In the Preliminary Results, we 
preliminarily determined to rescind this administrative review with 
respect to the 18 companies that have no reviewable, suspended entries 
of subject merchandise during the POR. We received no comments from 
interested parties with respect to this record information or the 
preliminary partial rescission of the administrative review. Therefore, 
we are rescinding this administrative review, in part, with respect to 
the 18 companies that have no reviewable entries during the POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2018-2019, 85 FR 71317,

Steel Pipe from Mexico: Rescission of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review; 2016-2017, 83 FR 54084 (October 26, 2018).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Partial Deferral of Administrative Review

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, we determined that there are 
no reviewable sales to an unaffiliated U.S. customer related to Cimtas' 
POR entries of subject merchandise and preliminarily determined to 
defer Cimtas' sales reporting until a subsequent review period.\5\ We 
received no comments from interested parties with respect to this 
record information. Therefore, we continue to find that Cimtas has no 
reviewable sales during this POR and we are deferring Cimtas' reporting 
of its sales to the subsequent review, contingent upon receiving a 
request for review of Cimtas.

    \5\ See Preliminary Results, 85 FR at 81878; see also 
Memorandum, ``Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Welded Line 
Pipe from the Republic of Turkey: Business Proprietary Information 
(BPI) Related to the Preliminary Results,'' dated December 17, 2020.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    We will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
liquidate any suspended entries of subject merchandise for the 18 
companies listed in the appendix to this notice at the rate in effect 
at the time of entry. Consistent with its recent notice,\6\ 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Notice of Discontinuation of Policy to Issue Liquidation 
Instructions After 15 Days in Applicable Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Proceedings, 86 FR 884 (January 
15, 2021).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As Commerce has made a final determination to defer the review with 
respect to Cimtas' suspended entries of subject merchandise during the 
POR, these entries will remain suspended until completion of the 
ongoing review of the antidumping duty order of welded line pipe from 
Turkey for the period December 1, 2019, through November 30, 2020.\7\ 
When Commerce completes its review and issues final results for the 
period December 1, 2019, through November 30, 2020, we will instruct 
CBP to assess antidumping duties on and liquidate Cimtas' suspended 
entries of subject merchandise during the POR based on the final 
results of that review. If Commerce receives a timely withdrawal of the 
request to review Cimtas and rescinds the review with respect to Cimtas 
for the period December 1, 2019, through November 30, 2020, we will 
instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on and liquidate Cimtas' 
suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR at the cash 
deposit rate in effect at the time of entry.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 86 FR 8166, 8171 (February 4, 2021).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    As Commerce has proceeded to a final rescission, in part, and final 
deferral, in part, of this administrative review, no cash deposit rates 
will change. Accordingly, the current cash deposit requirements 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 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 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), which continues to govern 
business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. 
Timely written notification of 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

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d).

    Dated: March 30, 2021.
