The institutions are required to annually report to NIFA: (1) The actions taken to seek stakeholder input to encourage their participation; (2) a brief statement of the process used by the recipient institution to identify individuals and groups who are stakeholders and to collect input from them; and (3) a statement of how collected input was considered. There is no legislatively prescribed form or format for this reporting requirement. However, the 1862 and 1890 land- grant institutions and Hispanic-serving agricultural colleges and universities are required to report on their Stakeholder Input Process annually as part of their Annual Report of Accomplishments and Results. Section 103(e) of AREERA (7 U.S.C. 7613(e)) requires that the 1862, 1890, and 1994 land-grant institutions, as well as Hispanic-serving agricultural colleges and universities, establish a merit review process to obtain agricultural research and extension funds. Section 104 of AREERA (7 U.S.C. 361c(h)) further stipulated that for research conducted pursuant to the Hatch Act, a scientific peer review process be established for research programs funded under section 3(c)(3) of the Hatch Act (commonly referred to as Hatch Multistate Research Funds), which should be used in lieu of the merit review requirement in section 7613(e). khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES I.

Additionally, subsequent to the Preliminary Results, Commerce issued a supplemental questionnaire 6 to the Borusan Companies inquiring about whether ‘‘Borusan Mannesmann’’ and ‘‘Borusan Mannesmann Pipe US, Inc.,’’ two companies for which a review was initiated and included in the Preliminary Results, are U.S. companies. In the Borusan Companies’ response,7 they stated that ‘‘Borusan Mannesmann’’ is not a legal entity, and that the full name of the company is Borusan Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S., one of the mandatory respondents. Further, they stated that Borusan Mannesmann Pipe US, Inc. is a U.S.-based firm producing oil country tubular goods and line pipe and is not an exporter or producer of subject merchandise. Thus, because ‘‘Borusan Mannesmann’’ is not a legal entity, and because Borusan Mannesmann Pipe US, Inc. is a U.S.-based firm that is not a producer or exporter of the subject merchandise, we are rescinding the review with respect to these companies pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).

Rescission of Administrative Review, in Part

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, based on timely-filed 
certifications and the results of our query of Custom and Border 
Protection's (CBP) trade database, as well as the responses received 
from CBP to our no-shipment inquiries, we indicated our intent to 
rescind the administrative review with regard to Toscelik Profil ve Sac 
Endustrisi A.S., Tosyali Dis Ticaret A.S., and Toscelik Metal Ticaret 
A.S. (collectively, the Tos[ccedil]elik Companies); Cayirova Boru

Borusan Ihracat Ithalat ve Dagitim A.S. (Borusan Dagitim); Tubeco Pipe 
and Steel Corporation (Tubeco); and Borusan Lojistik Dagitim Depolama 
Tasimacilik ve Ticaret A.S. (Borusan Lojistik), in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(3).\5\ As the facts in this regard are unchanged since 
the Preliminary Results, we are rescinding the administrative review of 
the Toscelik Companies, the Yucel Companies, Cinar Boru, Borusan 
Fabrikalari, Borusan Gemlik, Borusan Dagitim, Tubeco, and Borusan 
Lojistik pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). For further information, see 
the Issues and Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Preliminary Results, 86 FR at 29755, and accompanying 
PDM at 8-9.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Additionally, subsequent to the Preliminary Results, Commerce 
issued a supplemental questionnaire \6\ to the Borusan Companies 
inquiring about whether ``Borusan Mannesmann'' and ``Borusan Mannesmann 
Pipe US, Inc.,'' two companies for which a review was initiated and 
included in the Preliminary Results, are U.S. companies. In the Borusan 
Companies' response,\7\ they stated that ``Borusan Mannesmann'' is not 
a legal entity, and that the full name of the company is Borusan 
Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S., one of the mandatory 
respondents. Further, they stated that Borusan Mannesmann Pipe US, Inc. 
is a U.S.-based firm producing oil country tubular goods and line pipe 
and is not an exporter or producer of subject merchandise. Thus, 
because ``Borusan Mannesmann'' is not a legal entity, and because 
Borusan Mannesmann Pipe US, Inc. is a U.S.-based firm that is not a 
producer or exporter of the subject merchandise, we are rescinding the 
review with respect to these companies pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(3).

in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. The issues are identified in the 
appendix to this notice. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on the comments received, we made no changes to the net 
subsidy rates calculated for the Borusan Companies.

Methodology

    Commerce conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For each 
of the subsidy programs found countervailable during the POR, we 
determine that there is a subsidy, i.e., a government-provided 
financial contribution that confers a benefit to the recipient, and 
that the subsidy is specific.\8\ For a complete description of the 
methodology underlying all of Commerce's conclusions, see the Issues 
and Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act regarding 
financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding 
benefit; and section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity.

351.221(b)(4), for the period January 1, 2019, through December 31, 
2019, we determine the net subsidy rates for the producers/exporters 
under review to be as follows:

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2), Commerce will determine, and CBP 
shall assess, countervailing duties on all appropriate entries of 
subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this 
review, for the above-listed companies at the applicable ad valorem 
assessment rates listed. We intend to issue assessment instructions to 
CBP 35 days after the date of publication of these final results of 
review. 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).
    For the companies for which this review is rescinded, Commerce will 
instruct CBP to assess countervailing duties on all appropriate entries 
at a rate equal to the cash deposit of estimated countervailing duties 
required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for 
consumption, during the POR in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, Commerce also 
intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated 
countervailing duties in the amounts shown for each of the companies 
listed above on shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of 
the final results of this administrative review. For all nonreviewed 
firms subject to the order, we will instruct CBP to 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, effective upon 
publication of these final results, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Administrative Protective Order (APO)

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 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 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 sanctionable 
violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these final results in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: November 23, 2021.
James Maeder,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
