Light-Walled Welded Rectangular Carbon Steel Tubing from Argentina and Taiwan; Final Results of the Expedited Sunset Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders, 67432-67433 [05-22152]

Download as PDF 67432 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 214 / Monday, November 7, 2005 / Notices of trade adjustment. Nevertheless, we considered whether home market sales were at a more advanced LOT than the CEP sales, thus warranting a CEP offset under section 773(a)(7)(B) of the Act. In order to determine whether NV is at a more advanced LOT than the CEP transactions, the Department compared home market selling activities with those for CEP transactions after deducting the expenses identified in section 772(d) of the Act. After making these deductions, the Department determined that the differences between the home and U.S. market selling activities support a finding that DSM’s sales in the home market were at a more advanced LOT than the CEP sales. See Memorandum from Malcolm Burke to the File, concerning Level of Trade and CEP Offset Analysis, dated concurrently with this notice. Thus, in calculating NV, we reduced DSM’s home market sales prices in accordance with the CEP offset provision. Currency Conversion Pursuant to section 773A(a) of the Act, we converted amounts expressed in foreign currencies into U.S. dollar amounts based on the exchange rates in effect on the dates of the relevant U.S. sales, as certified by the Federal Reserve Bank. Preliminary Results of Review As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine that the following weighted- average dumping margin exists for the period February 1, 2004, through January 31, 2005: briefs, limited to issues raised in the case briefs. The Department will consider rebuttal briefs filed not later than five days after the time limit for filing case briefs. Parties who submit arguments are requested to submit with each argument: (1) a statement of the issue; (2) a brief summary of the argument; and, (3) a table of authorities cited. Further, the Department requests that parties submitting written comments provide the Department with a diskette containing the public version of those comments. Unless the deadline for issuing the final results of review is extended, the Department will issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of its analysis of issues raised in the written comments, within 120 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. Assessment Rates In accordance with 19 CFR § 351.212(b)(1), in these preliminary results of review we calculated importer–specific assessment rates for DSM’s subject merchandise. Within 15 days of publication of the final results of review, the Department will issue instructions to CBP directing it to assess the final importer–specific assessment rates (if above de minimis) uniformly on the entered value of all entries of subject merchandise made by the relevant importer during the POR.

Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the concomitant assessment of double antidumping duties.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background:

    On July 1, 2005, the Department initiated the second sunset reviews 
of the antidumping duty orders on light-walled welded rectangular 
carbon steel tubing from Argentina and Taiwan pursuant to section 
751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 70 
FR 38101 (July 1, 2005). The Department received a notice of intent to 
participate from Allied Tube and Conduit, Hannibal Industries, Leavitt 
Tube Company, Northwest Pipe Company, Searing Industries, and Western 
Tube and Conduit (collectively the domestic interested parties) within 
the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i) pertaining to sunset 
reviews. The domestic interested parties claimed interested-party 
status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as manufacturers of a 
domestic like product in the United States. We received complete 
substantive responses from the domestic interested parties within the 
30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). We received no 
responses from the respondent interested parties. As a result, pursuant 
to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), 
the Department has conducted expedited (120-day) sunset reviews of 
these orders.

Scope of the Orders:

    The product covered by these orders is light-walled welded carbon 
steel pipes and tubes of rectangular (including square) cross-section 
having a wall thickness of less than 0.156 inch. This merchandise is 
classified under item number 7306.60.50.00 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States. It was formerly classified under item 
number 610.4928 of the Tariff Schedules of the United States.

Analysis of Comments Received:

    All issues raised in these reviews are addressed in the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum from Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary 
for Import Administration, to Joseph A. Spetrini, Acting Assistant 
Secretary for Import Administration, dated October 31, 2005, which is 
hereby adopted by this notice. The issues discussed in the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum include the likelihood of continuation or 
recurrence of dumping and the magnitude of the margins likely to 
prevail if the orders were to be revoked. Parties can find a complete 
discussion of all issues raised in these reviews and the corresponding 
recommendations in this public memorandum which is on file in room B-

Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Web at https://

and Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Final Results of Reviews:

    We determine that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on 
light-walled welded rectangular carbon steel tubing from Argentina and 
Taiwan would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping 
at the following weighted-average percentage margins:
