SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On October 7, 2019, based on a timely request for review of four companies by United States Steel Corporation (the petitioner),[1] Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on small diameter seamless pipe from Romania covering the period August 1, 2018, through July 31, 2019.[2]

On October 15, 2019, the petitioner withdrew its request for administrative review of SC TMK-Artrom S.A. (TMK-Artrom) [3] and SC Tubinox S.A. (Tubinox).[4] No other interested parties requested an administrative review.

Partial Rescission of Review

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review.

Because the petitioner's request for administrative review of TMK-Artrom and Tubinox was withdrawn within 90 days of the date of publication of the Initiation Notice, and no other interested party requested a review of these companies, Commerce is rescinding this review with respect to TMK-Artrom and Tubinox, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). The administrative review remains active with respect to the two remaining companies for which a review was initiated, i.e., ArcelorMittal Tubular Products Roman S.A. and Silcotub S.A.

Assessment

Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries at a rate equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during the period August 1, 2018, through July 31, 2019, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication of this notice in the Federal Register, if appropriate.

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 the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction 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 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 violation which is subject to sanction.

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).
