Verification Commerce was unable to conduct onsite verifications of the information relied upon in making its final determination in this investigation for reasons beyond its control. However, we conducted virtual verifications in lieu of on-site verifications to verify the information relied upon in making this final determination, in accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Specifically, Commerce conducted virtual verifications of the home market sales, U.S. sales, cost of production, and further manufacturing responses submitted by Tubos de Acero de Mexico, S.A. (TAMSA). Changes Since the Preliminary Determination Based on our analysis of the comments received and additional information obtained since the Preliminary Determination, we made certain changes to the margin calculation for this final determination. For a discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. All-Others Rate Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the estimated weightedaverage dumping margin for all other producers and exporters not individually investigated shall be equal to the weighted average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for individually investigated exporters and producers, excluding rates that are zero, de minimis, or determined entirely under section 776 of the Act, i.e., facts otherwise available. In this investigation, Commerce calculated an individual estimated weighted-average dumping margin for the sole mandatory respondent, TAMSA, that is not zero, de minimis, or E:\FR\FM\29SEN1.SGM 29SEN1 59042 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 188 / Thursday, September 29, 2022 / Notices based entirely on facts otherwise available. Consequently, Commerce assigned the estimated weighted-average dumping margin calculated for TAMSA to all other producers and exporters of the merchandise under consideration, pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act. Final Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances In accordance with section 735(a)(3) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.206, Commerce continues to find that critical circumstances exist for all companies in Mexico.

Verification

    Commerce was unable to conduct on-site verifications of the 
information relied upon in making its final determination in this 
investigation for reasons beyond its control. However, we conducted 
virtual verifications in lieu of on-site verifications to verify the 
information relied upon in making this final determination, in 
accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act). Specifically, Commerce conducted virtual verifications of 
the home market sales, U.S. sales, cost of production, and further 
manufacturing responses submitted by Tubos de Acero de Mexico, S.A. 
(TAMSA).

Changes Since the Preliminary Determination

    Based on our analysis of the comments received and additional 
information obtained since the Preliminary Determination, we made 
certain changes to the margin calculation for this final determination. 
For a discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum.

All-Others Rate

    Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the estimated 
weighted-average dumping margin for all other producers and exporters 
not individually investigated shall be equal to the weighted average of 
the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for 
individually investigated exporters and producers, excluding rates that 
are zero, de minimis, or determined entirely under section 776 of the 
Act, i.e., facts otherwise available.
    In this investigation, Commerce calculated an individual estimated 
weighted-average dumping margin for the sole mandatory respondent, 
TAMSA, that is not zero, de minimis, or

[[Page 59042]]

based entirely on facts otherwise available. Consequently, Commerce 
assigned the estimated weighted-average dumping margin calculated for 
TAMSA to all other producers and exporters of the merchandise under 
consideration, pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act.

Final Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances

    In accordance with section 735(a)(3) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.206, 
Commerce continues to find that critical circumstances exist for all 
companies in Mexico. For a full description of the methodology and 
results of Commerce's critical circumstances analysis, see the Issues 
and Decision Memorandum.\3\

Further, in accordance with 735(c)(4) of the Act, Commerce will 
instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation of all entries of 
subject merchandise, as described in Appendix I of this notice, which 
were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after 
February 10, 2022, which is 90 days before the date of publication of 
the Preliminary Determination in the Federal Register. These suspension 
of liquidation instructions will remain in effect until further notice.
    Pursuant to section 735(c)(1)(B)(ii) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.210(d), upon the publication of this notice, we will instruct CBP 
to require a cash deposit for estimated antidumping duties for such 
entries as follows: (1) the cash deposit rate for the respondent listed 
in the table above is the company-specific estimated weighted-average 
dumping margin listed for the respondent in the table; (2) if the 
exporter is not the respondent listed in the table above, but the 
producer is, then the cash deposit rate is the company-specific 
estimated weighted-average dumping margin listed for the producer of 
the subject merchandise in the table above; and (3) the cash deposit 
rate for all other producers and exporters is the all-others estimated 
weighted-average dumping margin listed in the table above.

U.S. International Trade Commission Notification

    In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, Commerce will notify 
the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) of its final affirmative 
determination of sales at LTFV. Because the final determination in this 
investigation is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of 
the Act, the ITC will make its final determination as to whether the 
domestic industry in the United States is materially injured, or 
threatened with material injury, by reason of imports or sales (or the 
likelihood of sales) for importation of OCTG no later than 45 days 
after this final determination. If the ITC determines that such injury 
does not exist, this proceeding will be terminated, all cash deposits 
posted will be refunded, and suspension of liquidation will be lifted. 
If the ITC determines that such injury does exist, Commerce will issue 
an antidumping duty order directing CBP to assess, upon further 
instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties on all imports of the 
subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the effective date of the suspension of 
liquidation, as discussed in the ``Continuation of Suspension of 
Liquidation'' section above.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to an 
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). 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

    This determination is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 735(d) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(c).

    Dated: September 23, 2022.

Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
