review in accordance with section
751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as
amended (the Act).
Scope of the Order
3
The merchandise covered by the
Order is certain OCTG from Turkey. For
a complete description of the scope, see
the Preliminary Decision Memorandum
accompanying the Preliminary Results.
4
Changes Since the Preliminary Results
As no party submitted comments on
the Preliminary Results, we made no
changes in the final results of this
review.
Partial Rescission of Administrative
Review
It is Commerce’s practice to rescind
an administrative review of a
countervailing duty order, pursuant to
19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), when there are no
reviewable entries of subject
merchandise during the POR for which
liquidation is suspended.
5
Normally,
upon completion of an administrative
review, the suspended entries are
liquidated at the countervailing duty
assessment rate calculated for the
review period.
6
Therefore, for an
administrative review of a company to
be conducted, there must be a
reviewable, suspended entry that
Commerce can instruct U.S. Customs
and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate
at the calculated countervailing duty
assessment rate calculated for the
review period.
7
According to the CBP import data, the
five non-selected companies subject to
this review, did not have reviewable
entries of subject merchandise during
the POR for which liquidation is
suspended.
8
Because there is no
evidence on the record of this segment
of the proceeding to indicate that these
companies had entries, exports, or sales
of subject merchandise to the United
States during the POR, we are
rescinding the administrative review
with respect to these companies
consistent with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).
Final Results of the Administrative
Review
In accordance with section 777A(e)(1)
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), we
determine the following net
countervailable subsidy rate for
Borusan, for the period January 1, 2018,
through December 31, 2018:

Assessment Rates
Commerce shall determine, and CBP
shall assess, countervailing duties on all
appropriate entries covered by this
review, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C)
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2).
Because we calculated a de minimis
countervailable subsidy rate for Borusan
in the final results of this review, we
intend to instruct CBP to liquidate the
appropriate entries without regard to
countervailing duties in accordance
with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2) and 19 CFR
351.106(c)(1).
With respect to the companies for
which this administrative review is
rescinded (i.e., Bakir Grup Makine
Imalat Bakim Montaj Demontaj Sanayi
ve Ticaret Ltd. Sti.; Hydra Insaat Sanayi
ve Ticaret Anonim Sirketi; Kalibre Boru
Sanayi ve Ticaret; NETBORU San. ve
Dis. Tic. Koll. Sti.; and Yilmaz Pipo),
countervailing duties shall be assessed
at rates equal to the cash deposit rate
required at the time of entry, or
withdrawal from warehouse, for
consumption, during the period January
1, 2018, through December 31, 2018, in
accordance with 19 CFR
351.212(c)(1)(i).
Commerce intends to issue
appropriate assessment instructions to
CBP no earlier than 35 days after the
date of this publication of the final
results of this review in the Federal
Register. If a timely summons is filed at
the U.S. Court of International Trade,
the assessment instructions will direct
CBP not to liquidate relevant entries
until the time for parties to file a request
for a statutory injunction has expired
(i.e., within 90 days of publication).
Cash Deposit Requirements
Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the
Act, Commerce also intends to instruct
CBP to collect cash deposits of
estimated countervailing duties at the
appropriate rates. For shipments of
subject merchandise by Borusan
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse,
for consumption on or after the date of
publication of these final results, the
cash deposit rate will be zero. For all
non-reviewed firms, CBP will continue
to collect cash deposits of estimated
countervailing duties at the most recent
company-specific or all-others rate
applicable to the company, as
appropriate. These cash deposit
requirements, when imposed, shall
remain in effect until further notice.
Administrative Protective Order
This notice serves as a reminder to
parties subject to administrative
protective order (APO) of their
responsibility concerning the
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 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 sanctionable
violation.
Notification to Interested Parties
These final results are issued and
published in accordance with sections
751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.
Dated: May 4, 2021.
Christian Marsh,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement
and Compliance.
