Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    As no party submitted comments on the Preliminary Results, we made 
no changes in the final results of this review.

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    It is Commerce's practice to rescind an administrative review of a 
countervailing duty order, 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.\5\ Normally, upon completion of an 
administrative review, the suspended entries are liquidated at the 
countervailing duty assessment rate calculated for the review 
period.\6\ Therefore, for an administrative review of a company to be 
conducted, there must be a reviewable, suspended entry that Commerce 
can instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate at 
the calculated countervailing duty assessment rate calculated for the 
review period.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See, e.g., Lightweight Thermal Paper from the People's 
Republic of China: Notice of Rescission of Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Review; 2015, 82 FR 14349 (March 20, 2017); see also 
Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe from the People's Republic 
of China: Rescission of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review; 
2017, 84 FR 14650 (April 11, 2019).
    \6\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2).
    \7\ See 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    According to the CBP import data, the five non-selected companies 
subject to this review, did not have reviewable entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR for which liquidation is suspended.\8\ 
Because there is no evidence on the record of this segment of the 
proceeding to indicate that these companies had entries, exports, or 
sales of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, we 
are rescinding the administrative review with respect to these 
companies consistent with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ These five companies are: Bakir Grup Makine Imalat Bakim 
Montaj Demontaj Sanayi ve Ticaret Ltd. Sti.; Hydra Insaat Sanayi ve 
Ticaret Anonim Sirketi; Kalibre Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret; NETBORU San. 
ve Dis. Tic. Koll. Sti.; and Yilmaz Pipo.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of the Administrative Review

    In accordance with section 777A(e)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.221(b)(5), we determine the following net countervailable subsidy 
rate for Borusan, for the period January 1, 2018, through December 31, 
2018:

 
------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                              Subsidy rate (percent ad

    \9\ Commerce has determined that Borusan Mannesmann Boru Sanayi 
ve Ticaret A.S.; Borusan Istikbal Ticaret.; Borusan Lojistik Dag. 
Deg. Tas Ve; Borusan Mannesmann Boru Yatirim Holding A.[Scedil].; 
and Borusan Holding A.[Scedil]. are cross-owned. See Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall assess, countervailing 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review, pursuant to 
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2). Because we 
calculated a de minimis countervailable subsidy rate for Borusan in the 
final results of this review, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate 
the appropriate entries without regard to countervailing duties in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2) and 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1).
    With respect to the companies for which this administrative review 
is rescinded (i.e., Bakir Grup Makine Imalat Bakim Montaj Demontaj 
Sanayi ve Ticaret Ltd. Sti.; Hydra Insaat Sanayi ve Ticaret Anonim 
Sirketi; Kalibre Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret; NETBORU San. ve Dis. Tic. 
Koll. Sti.; and Yilmaz Pipo), countervailing duties shall be assessed 
at rates equal to the cash deposit rate required at the time of entry, 
or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during the period 
January 1, 2018, through December 31, 2018, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(c)(1)(i).
    Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to 
CBP no earlier than 35 days after the date of this 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

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, Commerce also intends 
to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing 
duties at the appropriate rates. For shipments of subject merchandise 
by Borusan entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after the date of publication of these final results, the cash deposit 
rate will be zero. For all non-reviewed firms, CBP will continue to 
collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing duties at the most 
recent company-specific or all-others rate applicable to the company, 
as appropriate. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the 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 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 sanctionable 
violation.
