Pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act, if the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for all exporters and producers individually examined are zero, de minimis or determined based entirely on facts otherwise available, Commerce may use any reasonable method to establish the estimated weighted-average dumping margin for all other producers or exporters. Because the only individually calculated dumping margin is not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts otherwise available, we assigned the estimated weighted-average dumping margin calculated for Interpipe to all other producers and exporters of subject merchandise, pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs that were 
submitted by parties in this investigation are addressed in the Issues 
and Decision Memorandum. A list of the sections of the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum are in Appendix II of this notice.

Verification

    Commerce was unable to conduct on-site verification of the 
information relied upon in making its final determination in this 
investigation. However, we took additional steps in lieu of an on-site 
verification to verify the information relied upon in making this final 
determination, in accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (the Act).\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Standard, Line, and Pressure Pipe from Ukraine: Resubmitting 
Questionnaire in Lieu of Verification Response,'' dated April 8, 
2021.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Changes Since the Preliminary Determination

    Based on our review and analysis of the comments received from 
parties and our findings related to our request for information in lieu 
of verification, we made certain changes to our calculations of the 
dumping margin for the sole respondent, Interpipe. For a complete 
discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum and 
Final Analysis Memorandum.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Memorandum, ``Interpipe Final Determination Analysis,'' 
dated June 25, 2021.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

All-Others Rate

    Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the estimated 
weighted-average dumping margin for all other producers and exporters 
not individually investigated shall be equal to the weighted average of 
the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for 
exporters and producers individually investigated excluding rates that 
are zero, de minimis, or determined entirely under section 776 of the 
Act. Pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act, if the estimated 
weighted-average dumping margins established for all exporters and 
producers individually examined are zero, de minimis or determined 
based entirely on facts otherwise available, Commerce may use any 
reasonable method to establish the estimated weighted-average dumping 
margin for all other producers or exporters.
    Because the only individually calculated dumping margin is not 
zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts otherwise available, we 
assigned the estimated weighted-average dumping margin calculated for 
Interpipe to all other producers and exporters of subject merchandise, 
pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act.

Final Determination

    The final estimated weighted-average dumping margins are as 
follows:

Disclosure

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b), within five days after the 
date of any public announcement of the final determination or, if there 
is no public announcement, within five days after the date of 
publication of this notice in the Federal Register, we intend to 
disclose to parties to this proceeding the calculations performed in 
this final determination.

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 
Ukraine, as described in Appendix I of this notice, which were entered, 
or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after February 10, 
2021, the date of publication in the Federal Register of the 
affirmative Preliminary Determination.
    Pursuant to section 735(c)(1)(B)(ii) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.210(d), we will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit for such 
entries of merchandise equal to the following: (1) The cash deposit 
rate for the respondent listed in the table above will be equal to the 
respondent-specific estimated dumping margin listed for the respondent 
in the table; (2) if the exporter is not identified in the table above 
but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be equal to the 
respondent-specific estimated 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 dumping margin listed in the table above. 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 this 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) of seamless pipe no later than 45 days after this final 
determination. If the ITC determines that such injury does not exist, 
this proceeding will be terminated, 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 
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, as discussed above in the ``Continuation of Suspension of 
Liquidation'' section.

Appendix I--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 A53, 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.
