(collectively, Colakoglu), which we had collapsed as a single entity in the underlying less-than-fairvalue investigation.8 Based on the final judgment of the U.S. Court of International Trade (CIT) in litigation associated with the underlying investigation, subject merchandise produced and exported by Colakoglu was excluded from the Order.9 Consequently, Commerce discontinued this review with respect to the subject merchandise produced and exported by Colakoglu, but not subject merchandise (1) produced by Colakoglu and exported by another company; or (2) produced by another company and exported by Colakoglu.10 Accordingly, these final results cover thirteen companies including Habas, six non-examined companies, including Colakoglu, and six no-shipments companies. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the Order is certain hot-rolled steel flat products.

Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in an investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for companies which were not selected for individual examination in an administrative review. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate is normally ‘‘an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated weighted average dumping margins established for exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on the basis of facts available}.’’ For these final results, we calculated a weighted-average dumping margin that is not zero, de minimis, or determined entirely on the basis of facts available for Habas, our sole mandatory respondent. Accordingly, we have determined the weighted-average dumping margin for the nonindividually examined companies to be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin calculated for Habas. Final Results of the Review Commerce determines that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the period October 1, 2018, through September 30, 2019: Weighted-average dumping margin (percent) Producer or exporter Habas Sinai ve Tibbi Gazlar Istihsal Endustrisi A.S ................................................................................................................... 24.32 Review-Specific Average Rate Applicable to the Following Companies: Cag Celik Demir ve Celik ............................................................................................................................................................

Consistent with its recent notice,15 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 CIT, 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). For Habas, Commerce has calculated importer-specific antidumping duty assessment rates. We calculated importer-specific antidumping duty 14 This rate applies only for certain hot-rolled flat products produced in Turkey where Colakoglu acted as either the producer or exporter but not both. 15 See Notice of Discontinuation Policy to Issue Liquidation Instructions After 15 Days in Applicable Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Proceedings, 86 FR 3995 (January 15, 2021).

Where either the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importerspecific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. For the non-examined companies, we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties at an ad valorem rate equal to each company’s weighted-average dumping margin. For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Habas where it did not know that its merchandise was destined for the United States, and for all entries attributed to the companies which we have found to have had no shipments during the POR, we will instruct CBP to liquidate such unreviewed entries pursuant to the reseller policy,16 i.e., the assessment rate for such entries will be equal to the all-others rate established in the investigation (i.e., 2.73 percent),17 if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. 16 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 17 See Timken Notice, 85 FR at 29400.

Countervailing Duty Orders In accordance with sections 705(b)(1)(A)(i) and 705(d) of the Act, the ITC has notified Commerce of its final determinations that the industry in the United States producing seamless pipe is materially injured by reason of subsidized imports of seamless pipe from Korea and Russia. Therefore, in accordance with section 705(c)(2) of the Act, we are issuing these CVD orders. Because the ITC determined that imports of seamless pipe from Korea and Russia are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from Korea and Russia, entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of countervailing duties. Countervailing duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of seamless pipe from Korea and Russia entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after December 11, 2020, the date of publication of the preliminary determinations,3 but will not include entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures period and before the publication of the ITC’s final injury determination under section 705(b) of the Act, as further described below.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 24, 2021, Commerce published the Preliminary Results of 
this review.\1\ We invited interested parties to comment on the 
Preliminary Results. On March 26, 2021, AK Steel Corporation (a 
petitioner in the underlying less-than-fair-value investigation \2\) 
and Cleveland-Cliffs Steel LLC (collectively, the domestic producers) 
filed a case brief.\3\ The domestic producers also filed a rebuttal 
brief on April 2, 2021.\4\ The sole mandatory respondent, Habas Sinai 
ve Tibbi Gazlar Istihsal Endustrisi A.S. (Habas), filed a case brief on 
March 26, 2021.\5\

751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), Commerce 
extended the time period for issuing these final results until August 
20, 2021.\6\

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

    We initiated this review on thirteen companies,\7\ including 
Colakoglu Metalurji, A.S. and Colakoglu Dis Ticaret A.S. (collectively, 
Colakoglu), which we had collapsed as a single entity in the underlying 
less-than-fair-value investigation.\8\ Based on the final judgment of 
the U.S. Court of International Trade (CIT) in litigation associated 
with the underlying investigation, subject merchandise produced and 
exported by Colakoglu was excluded from the Order.\9\ Consequently, 
Commerce discontinued this review with respect to the subject 
merchandise produced and exported by Colakoglu, but not subject 
merchandise (1) produced by Colakoglu and exported by another company; 
or (2) produced by another company and exported by Colakoglu.\10\ 
Accordingly, these final results cover thirteen companies including 
Habas, six non-examined companies, including Colakoglu, and six no-
shipments companies.

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

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that six exporters 
had no shipments of the subject merchandise during the POR: (1) Agir 
Haddecilik A.S. (Agir); (2) Eregli Demir ve Celik Fabrikalari T.A.S. 
and (3) Iskenderun Iron & Steel Works Ltd. (a/k/a/Iskenderun Demir ve 
Celik A.S.) (collectively, Erdemir Group); (4) Gazi Metal Mamulleri 
Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S.(Gazi); (5) Seametal Sanayi ve Dis Ticaret 
Limited Sirketi (Seametal) \12\; and (6) Tosyali Holding (Toscelik 
Profile and Sheet Ind. Co., Toscelik Profil ve Sac A.S.).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ In Commerce's Initiation Notice, this company was referred 
to as Seametal San ve Dis Tic. The two names refer to the same 
company.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We received no comments that were contrary to our preliminary 
findings with respect to those companies. Therefore, we continue to 
find that those exporters made no shipments of subject merchandise 
during the POR. Accordingly, consistent with our practice, we intend to 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate any 
existing entries of subject merchandise associated with these companies 
consistent with Commerce's reseller policy.\13\

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made two changes 
to the Preliminary Results. For a full discussion of these changes, see 
the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Rate for Non-Examined Companies

    The statute and Commerce's regulations do not address the

[[Page 47059]]

establishment of a rate to be applied to companies not selected for 
examination when Commerce limits its examination in an administrative 
review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. Generally, Commerce 
looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for 
calculating the all-others rate in an investigation, for guidance when 
calculating the rate for companies which were not selected for 
individual examination in an administrative review. Under section 
735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate is normally ``an amount 
equal to the weighted average of the estimated weighted average dumping 
margins established for exporters and producers individually 
investigated, excluding any zero or de minimis margins, and any margins 
determined entirely {on the basis of facts available{time} .''
    For these final results, we calculated a weighted-average dumping 
margin that is not zero, de minimis, or determined entirely on the 
basis of facts available for Habas, our sole mandatory respondent. 
Accordingly, we have determined the weighted-average dumping margin for 
the non-individually examined companies to be equal to the weighted-
average dumping margin calculated for Habas.

Final Results of the Review

    Commerce determines that the following weighted-average dumping 
margins exist for the period October 1, 2018, through September 30, 
2019:

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed for these final 
results of review within five days of the publication date of this 
notice in the Federal Register, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment of Antidumping Duties

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the 
final results of this review.
    Consistent with its recent notice,\15\ 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 CIT, 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ See Notice of Discontinuation Policy to Issue Liquidation 
Instructions After 15 Days in Applicable Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Proceedings, 86 FR 3995 (January 
15, 2021).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For Habas, Commerce has calculated importer-specific antidumping 
duty assessment rates. We calculated importer-specific antidumping duty 
assessment rates by aggregating the total amount of dumping calculated 
for the examined sales of the importer and dividing these amounts by 
the total entered value associated with those sales. Where either the 
respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis 
within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific 
assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    For the non-examined companies, we will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping duties at an ad valorem rate equal to each company's 
weighted-average dumping margin.
    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Habas 
where it did not know that its merchandise was destined for the United 
States, and for all entries attributed to the companies which we have 
found to have had no shipments during the POR, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate such unreviewed entries pursuant to the reseller policy,\16\ 
i.e., the assessment rate for such entries will be equal to the all-
others rate established in the investigation (i.e., 2.73 percent),\17\ 
if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the 
transaction.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements for estimated antidumping 
duties will be effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate 
for each specific company listed above will be equal to each company's 
weighted-average dumping margin established in the final results of 
this review, (except if the ad valorem rate is de minimis, in which 
case the cash deposit rate will be zero); (2) for previously 
investigated companies not participating in this review, the cash 
deposit will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the 
most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which the company 
participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, 
or the underlying investigation, but the producer is, then the cash 
deposit rate will be the company-specific rate established for the 
completed segment for the most recent POR for the producer of the 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be 2.73 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the underlying investigation.
    These 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 review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also 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). 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 these final results in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR
