Download as PDF 7120 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 26 / Tuesday, February 8, 2022 / Notices review.8 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), Commerce calculated an importer-specific ad valorem antidumping assessment rate for Kaptan Demir that is not zero or de minimis, and will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. Commerce will also instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 1.02 percent to all entries of subject merchandise during the POR which were produced and/or exported by Icdas Celik Enerji Tersane ve Ulasim Sanayi A.S., Kroman Celik Sanayi A.S., Yu¨cel Boru Ithalat-Ihracat ve Pazarlama A.S ¸ ., and Diler Dis Ticaret A.S. In addition, we continue to find that Habas had no shipments during the POR. Accordingly, consistent with Commerce’s practice, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate any existing entries of merchandise produced by Habas, but exported by other parties, at the rate for the intermediate reseller, if available, or at the all-others rate.9 Consistent with Commerce’s assessment practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Kaptan Demir for which it did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.10 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 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). khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the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 the companies under review will be the rate 8 See Antidumping Proceeding: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012). 9 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 10 Id.

Notification to Importers This notice serves as 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 the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under the 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.

However, because Commerce applied total AFA to the sole mandatory respondent in this review in accordance with section 776 of the Act, and the AFA dumping margin is based solely on the petition, there are no calculations to disclose. Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. Because we are applying total AFA as to Corinth’s entries for this POR, we will instruct CBP to apply an assessment rate to all entries Corinth produced and/or exported equal to the dumping margin indicated above. Commerce’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not know that the merchandise they sold to the intermediary (e.g., a reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.

    Commerce conducted this administrative review in accordance with 
section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by this order is welded carbon and alloy 
steel line pipe (other than stainless steel pipe), more than 406.4 mm 
(16 inches) in nominal outside diameter (large diameter welded line 
pipe), regardless of wall thickness, length, surface finish, grade, end 
finish, or stenciling. Large diameter welded pipe may be used to 
transport oil, gas, slurry, steam, or other fluids, liquids, or gases.
    The large diameter welded line pipe that is subject to this order

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from

Disclosure

    Normally, Commerce discloses to interested parties the calculations 
performed in connection with a final determination within five days of 
any public announcement or, if there is no public announcement, within 
five days of the date of publication of the notice of final 
determination in the Federal Register, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.224(b). However, because Commerce applied total AFA to the sole 
mandatory respondent in this review in accordance with section 776 of 
the Act, and the AFA dumping margin is based solely on the petition, 
there are no calculations to disclose.

351.212(b)(1), Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of 
this review.
    Because we are applying total AFA as to Corinth's entries for this 
POR, we will instruct CBP to apply an assessment rate to all entries 
Corinth produced and/or exported equal to the dumping margin indicated 
above.
    Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' will apply to entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in 
these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not 
know that the merchandise they sold to the intermediary (e.g., a 
reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United 
States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed 
entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.
    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 
U.S.

[[Page 7122]]

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

    The following cash deposit requirements 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 Corinth will be 
the rate shown above; (2) for previously investigated companies not 
participating in this review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be 
the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed 
segment of this proceeding; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered 
in this review, or the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) 
investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for the most recent segment for the manufacturer 
of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 10.26 percent, the all-
others rate made effective by the LTFV investigation.\10\ 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 Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (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 return/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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice is being issued and published in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213.

    Dated: February 2, 2022.
Lisa W. Wang,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
