In the Federal Register of October 6, 2020, in the FR Doc 2020–22053 on page 63081, in the first column, correct the all-others cash deposit rate for ‘‘all other producers or exporters’’ in the first paragraph under the ‘‘Cash Deposit Requirements’’ section. The correct allothers cash deposit rate for ‘‘all other producers or exporters’’ is 6.05 percent. Dated: February 4, 2022. Lisa W. Wang, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance. Background On July 9, 2019, August 5, 2019, and October 6, 2020, Commerce published in the Federal Register notices of the final results of the 2016–2017 administrative review, the amended final results of the 2016–2017 administrative review, and the final results of the 2017–2018 administrative review, respectively. We incorrectly identified the cash deposit rate for all others (i.e., ‘‘for all other producers or exporters’’) as 5.55 percent. The correct all-others cash deposit rate applicable during the 2016–2017 and 2017–2018 periods of review did not change from the rate that was established in the lessthan-fair-value (LTFV) investigation and the antidumping duty order. In the LTFV investigation, Commerce established a 6.05 percent cash deposit rate for all others (i.e., ‘‘for all other producers or exporters’’) as published in the antidumping duty order.1 We hereby notify the public that Commerce should have identified the all-others cash deposit rate as 6.05 percent in the above-referenced determinations. We intend to notify U.S. Customs and Border Protection of these corrections.

Disclosure

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

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.\5\ In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), Commerce 
calculated an importer-specific ad valorem antidumping assessment rate 
for Interpipe that is not zero or de minimis and will instruct CBP to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with Commerce's assessment practice, for entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR produced by Interpipe 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.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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).

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 Interpipe will 
be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the 
final results of this administrative review; (2) for previously 
reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit 
rate 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 was not a firm covered in this review 
or in the investigation but the producer was covered, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate established for the most recently completed 
segment of this proceeding for the producer of the merchandise; and (4) 
the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will 
continue to be the all-others rate of 7.47 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the original less-than-fair-value investigation.\7\ 
These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Order, 84 FR at 33919.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    We are issuing and publishing these results of administrative 
review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 
19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).
