SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On May 29, 2015, based on a timely request for review by Allied Tube & Conduit and JMC Steel Group, domestic interested parties and producers of certain welded carbon steel standard pipes and tubes from India,[1] the Department initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain welded carbon steel standard pipes and tubes from India with respect to Lloyds Metals & Engineers Limited and Lloyds Line Pipe Ltd., Lloyds Steel Industries Ltd., Jindal Pipes Limited, Maharashtra Seamless Limited, Ratnamani Metals Tubes Ltd., and Tata Iron and Steel Co., Ltd.[2]

On August 18, 2015, Allied Tube & Conduit and JMC Steel Group withdrew their request for an administrative review.[3]

Rescission of Review

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review if a party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. Allied Tube & Conduit and JMC Steel Group withdrew their request for review within the 90-day time limit. Because no other party requested a review, the Department is rescinding this administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain welded carbon steel standard pipes and tubes from India.

Assessment

The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of certain welded carbon steel standard pipes and tubes from India during the POR at rates equal to the cash deposit rate of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

Notifications

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 the Department's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

This notice also serves as a 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). 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.

This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
