SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

In 2014, Commerce published the AD orders on OCTG from India, Korea, Turkey, and Vietnam and the CVD orders on OCTG from India and Turkey; in 2019, Commerce published the AD order on OCTG from Ukraine.[1] On February 5, 2019, the ITC instituted,[2] and on June 4, 2019 Commerce initiated,[3] the five-year (sunset) reviews of the AD and CVD orders on OCTG from India, Korea, Turkey, Ukraine, and Vietnam, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). As a result of its reviews, Commerce determined that revocation of the Orders would be likely to lead to the continuation or recurrence of dumping or the continuation or recurrence of countervailable subsidies, and, therefore, notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins of dumping and the net subsidy rates likely to prevail should the Orders be revoked.[4] On August 3, 2020, the ITC published its determinations, pursuant to sections 751(c) and 752(a) of the Act, that revocation of the Orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.[5]

Scope of the Orders

For purposes of these Orders and a complete description of the products covered by each order, please see the Final Results and accompanying Issues and Decision Memoranda.[6]

Continuation of the Orders

As a result of the determinations by Commerce and the ITC that revocation the Orders would likely lead to the continuation or recurrence of dumping or countervailable subsidies and the continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(a), Commerce hereby orders the continuation of the Orders. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect AD and CVD cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise.

The effective date of the continuation of the Orders will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of continuation. Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(c)(2), Commerce intends to initiate the next five-year review of the Orders not later than 30 days prior to the fifth anniversary of the effective date of continuation.

Administrative Protective Order

Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply is a violation of the APO which may be subject to sanctions.

Notification to Interested Parties
