AGENCY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 On September 13, 2016, Commerce issued an AD order on imports of HWR pipes and tubes from Turkey.1 Pursuant to the Order, Commerce excluded Ozdemir Ltd. Sti. from the Order for entries of HWR pipes and tubes that were produced and exported by Ozdemir Ltd. Sti.2 In the most recently completed administrative review covering the period September 1, 2017, through August 31, 2018, we assigned Ozdemir Ltd. Sti. a weighted-average dumping margin of 35.66 percent for entries of HWR pipes and tubes where Ozdemir Ltd. Sti. was not both the producer and exporter of subject merchandise.3 On November 2, 2021, 1 See Heavy Walled Rectangular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from the Republic of Korea, Mexico, and the Republic of Turkey: Antidumping Duty Orders, 81 FR 62865 (September 13, 2016) (Order). 2 Id. 3 See Heavy Walled Rectangular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from the Republic of Turkey: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:03 Dec 09, 2021 Jkt 256001 Ozdemir AS requested that Commerce conduct an expedited CCR of the Order to determine that Ozdemir AS is the successor-in-interest to Ozdemir Ltd. Sti.4 In this submission, Ozdemir AS addressed the basic factors Commerce analyzes with respect to successor-ininterest determinations in the AD context and provided supporting documentation.5 Commerce received no comments from interested parties on Ozdemir’s CCR Submission. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the Order is certain heavy walled rectangular welded steel pipes and tubes of rectangular (including square) cross section, having a nominal wall thickness of not less than 4 mm. The merchandise includes, but is not limited to, the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) A–500, grade B specifications, or comparable domestic or foreign specifications. Included products are those in which: (1) Iron predominates, by weight, over each of the other contained elements; (2) the carbon content is 2 percent or less, by weight; and (3) none of the elements below exceeds the quantity, by weight, respectively indicated: • 2.50 percent of manganese, or • 3.30 percent of silicon, or • 1.50 percent of copper, or • 1.50 percent of aluminum, or • 1.25 percent of chromium, or • 0.30 percent of cobalt, or • 0.40 percent of lead, or • 2.0 percent of nickel, or • 0.30 percent of tungsten, or • 0.80 percent of molybdenum, or • 0.10 percent of niobium (also called columbium), or • 0.30 percent of vanadium, or • 0.30 percent of zirconium. The subject merchandise is currently provided for in item 7306.61.1000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Subject merchandise may also enter under HTSUS 7306.61.3000. While the HTSUS subheadings and ASTM specification are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this Order is dispositive. Initiation of Changed Circumstances Review Pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.216, Commerce will conduct a CCR upon a request from an interested party for a review of an AD order which shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review of the order.6 The information submitted by Ozdemir AS supporting its claim that Ozdemir AS is the successorin-interest to Ozdemir Ltd. Sti. demonstrates changed circumstances sufficient to initiate a review.7 The information submitted by Ozdemir AS demonstrates that its request is based solely on a change in corporate classification from a limited liability company (limited sirketi) to a joint stock company (anonim sirketi), effective September 24, 2021.8 Moreover, the evidence submitted in support of Ozdemir’s request demonstrates that Ozdemir AS is otherwise the same business entity as Ozdemir Ltd. Sti. Therefore, in accordance with the above-referenced regulation, Commerce is initiating a CCR to determine whether Ozdemir AS is the successor-in-interest to Ozdemir Ltd. Sti. Preliminary Results When it concludes that expedited action is warranted, Commerce may publish the notice of initiation and preliminary results of a CCR concurrently.9 Commerce has combined the notice of initiation and preliminary results in successor-in-interest cases when sufficient documentation has been provided supporting the request to make a preliminary determination.10 In this instance, because we have on the record information to support the request for a preliminary determination and no other interested party comments, we find that expedited action is warranted, and we are combining the notice of initiation and the notice of preliminary results of review, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii).

Sti. Specifically, Ozdemir AS has the same shareholders and same management team as Ozdemir Ltd. Sti.15 Further, Ozdemir AS submitted capacity records showing that its production facilities, capacities, number of employees, machinery, and equipment are the same as its predecessor’s.16 Finally, Ozdemir AS submitted evidence that there have been no material changes to the company’s suppliers or customer base.17 Based on the foregoing, we preliminarily determine that Ozdemir AS is the successor-in-interest to Ozdemir Ltd.

(CCR), the Department of Commerce (Commerce) is initiating a CCR of the 
antidumping duty (AD) order on heavy walled rectangular welded carbon 
steel pipes and tubes (HWR pipes and tubes) from Turkey. We

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On September 13, 2016, Commerce issued an AD order on imports of 
HWR pipes and tubes from Turkey.\1\ Pursuant to the Order, Commerce 
excluded Ozdemir Ltd. Sti. from the Order for entries of HWR pipes and 
tubes that were produced and exported by Ozdemir Ltd. Sti.\2\ In the 
most recently completed administrative review covering the period 
September 1, 2017, through August 31, 2018, we assigned Ozdemir Ltd. 
Sti. a weighted-average dumping margin of 35.66 percent for entries of 
HWR pipes and tubes where Ozdemir Ltd. Sti. was not both the producer 
and exporter of subject merchandise.\3\ On November 2, 2021, Ozdemir AS 
requested that Commerce conduct an expedited CCR of the Order to 
determine that Ozdemir AS is the successor-in-interest to Ozdemir Ltd. 
Sti.\4\ In this submission, Ozdemir AS addressed the basic factors 
Commerce analyzes with respect to successor-in-interest determinations 
in the AD context and provided supporting documentation.\5\ Commerce 
received no comments from interested parties on Ozdemir's CCR 
Submission.

HWR pipes and tubes from Turkey. Commerce intends to address the CCR 
request with respect to the CVD order in a separate Federal Register 
notice.

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

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the Order is certain heavy walled 
rectangular welded steel pipes and tubes of rectangular (including 
square) cross section, having a nominal wall thickness of not less than 
4 mm. The merchandise includes, but is not limited to, the American 
Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) A-500, grade B specifications, 
or comparable domestic or foreign specifications.
    Included products are those in which: (1) Iron predominates, by 
weight, over each of the other contained elements; (2) the carbon 
content is 2 percent or less, by weight; and (3) none of the elements 
below exceeds the quantity, by weight, respectively indicated:
     2.50 percent of manganese, or
     3.30 percent of silicon, or
     1.50 percent of copper, or
     1.50 percent of aluminum, or
     1.25 percent of chromium, or
     0.30 percent of cobalt, or
     0.40 percent of lead, or
     2.0 percent of nickel, or
     0.30 percent of tungsten, or
     0.80 percent of molybdenum, or
     0.10 percent of niobium (also called columbium), or
     0.30 percent of vanadium, or
     0.30 percent of zirconium.
    The subject merchandise is currently provided for in item 
7306.61.1000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS). Subject merchandise may also enter under HTSUS 7306.61.3000. 
While the HTSUS subheadings and ASTM specification are provided for 
convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope 
of this Order is dispositive.

Initiation of Changed Circumstances Review

    Pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act), and 19 CFR 351.216, Commerce will conduct a CCR upon a 
request from an interested party for a review of an AD order which 
shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review of the 
order.\6\ The information submitted by Ozdemir AS supporting its claim 
that Ozdemir AS is the successor-in-interest to Ozdemir Ltd. Sti. 
demonstrates changed circumstances sufficient to initiate a review.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See 19 CFR 351.216(c).
    \7\ See 19 CFR 351.216(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The information submitted by Ozdemir AS demonstrates that its 
request is based solely on a change in corporate classification from a 
limited liability company (limited sirketi) to a joint stock company 
(anonim sirketi), effective September 24, 2021.\8\ Moreover, the 
evidence submitted in support of Ozdemir's request demonstrates that 
Ozdemir AS is otherwise the same business entity as Ozdemir Ltd. Sti. 
Therefore, in accordance with the above-referenced regulation, Commerce 
is initiating a CCR to determine whether Ozdemir AS is the successor-
in-interest to Ozdemir Ltd. Sti.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See Ozdemir's CCR Submission at 4.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Results

    When it concludes that expedited action is warranted, Commerce may 
publish the notice of initiation and preliminary results of a CCR 
concurrently.\9\ Commerce has combined the notice of initiation and 
preliminary results in successor-in-interest cases when sufficient 
documentation has been provided supporting the request to make a 
preliminary determination.\10\ In this instance, because we have on the 
record information to support the request for a preliminary 
determination and no other interested party comments, we find that 
expedited action is warranted, and we are combining the notice of 
initiation and the notice of preliminary results of review, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii).

AD Methodology

    In a CCR, we generally consider a company to be the successor to 
another

[[Page 70444]]

company for AD cash deposit purposes if the operations of the successor 
are not materially dissimilar from those of its predecessor.\11\ In 
making this determination, Commerce examines a number of factors 
including, but not limited to, changes in: (1) Management; (2) 
production facilities; (3) suppliers; and (4) customer base.\12\ While 
no single factor or combination of factors is dispositive, Commerce 
will generally consider one company to be the successor to another if 
its resulting operation is essentially the same as that of its 
predecessor.\13\ Thus, if the evidence demonstrates that, with respect 
to the production and sale of the subject merchandise, the new company 
operates as the same business entity as the prior company, Commerce 
will assign the new company the cash deposit rate of its 
predecessor.\14\

    In its CCR submission, Ozdemir AS provided evidence demonstrating 
that Ozdemir AS's operations are not materially dissimilar from those 
of Ozdemir Ltd. Sti. Specifically, Ozdemir AS has the same shareholders 
and same management team as Ozdemir Ltd. Sti.\15\ Further, Ozdemir AS 
submitted capacity records showing that its production facilities, 
capacities, number of employees, machinery, and equipment are the same 
as its predecessor's.\16\ Finally, Ozdemir AS submitted evidence that 
there have been no material changes to the company's suppliers or 
customer base.\17\ Based on the foregoing, we preliminarily determine 
that Ozdemir AS is the successor-in-interest to Ozdemir Ltd. Sti.

    Should our final results remain unchanged from these preliminary 
results, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assign 
entries of subject merchandise that are not both produced and exported 
by Ozdemir AS the AD cash deposit rate applicable to Ozdemir Ltd. Sti., 
effective as of the date of publication of the final results. Entries 
that are both produced and exported by Ozdemir AS will be excluded from 
the Order.
