Start Supplemental Information
This review covers one producer/exporter of the subject merchandise, Silcotub. On June 7, 2017, the Department published the Preliminary Results in the Federal Register.
We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results.
No interested party submitted comments. Further, no party submitted a request for a hearing in the instant review. The Department conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).
Scope of the Order
The merchandise subject to the Order 
is small diameter seamless pipe. The product is currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 7304.10.10.20, 7304.10.50.20, 7304.19.10.20, 7304.19.50.20, 7304.31.30.00, 7304.31.60.50, 7304.39.00.16, 7304.39.00.20, 7304.39.00.24, 7304.39.00.28, 7304.39.00.32, 7304.51.50.05, 7304.51.50.60, 7304.59.60.00, 7304.59.80.10, 7304.59.80.15, 7304.59.80.20, and 7304.59.80.25. The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes only; the written product description of the scope of the Order is dispositive.
Changes Since the Preliminary Results
As no parties submitted comments on the margin calculation methodology used in the Preliminary Results, the Department made no adjustments to that methodology in the final results of this review.
Final Results of the Review
As a result of this review, the Department determines that the following weighted-average dumping margin exists for entries of subject merchandise that were produced and/or exported by the following company during the POR:
|Manufacturer/exporter||Weighted-average margin (percent)|
|S.C. Silcotub S.A.||0.00|
The Department shall determine, 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, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b). Because we calculated a zero margin for Silcotub in the final results of this review, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties all shipments of subject merchandise manufactured and exported by Silcotub, entered or withdrawn from warehouse during the POR.
The Department intends to issue the appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review.
Cash Deposit Requirements
The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the notice of these final results for all shipments of certain small diameter carbon and alloy seamless standard, line and pressure pipe from Romania entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for entries of subject merchandise manufactured and/or exported by Silcotub will be zero; (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this review but covered in a completed prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recentlycompleted segment; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently- completed segment for the manufacturer of the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 13.06 percent, the all-others rate established in the Order. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.
