On September 1, 2020, Commerce published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the CVD order on OCTG from Turkey for the period January 1, 2019, through December 31, 2019.1 In accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(b), Commerce received a timely-filed request for an administrative review from the United States Steel Corporation, Maverick Tube Corporation, Tenaris Bay City, Inc, and IPSCO Tubulars Inc. (collectively, the Domestic Interested Parties) for the following exporters/producers of subject merchandise: APL Apollo Tubes Ltd.; BAUER Casings Makina San. Ve Tic.
