[FR Doc. 05–23262 Filed 11–29–05; 8:45 am] Background On February 15, 2005, Yieh Phui requested the Department to conduct an expedited changed circumstance review of the antidumping duty order on certain circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Taiwan. The Department determined that the information submitted by Yieh Phui was sufficient to warrant initiation of changed circumstance review and, on April 4, 2005, the Department published the Initiation Notice for this review. Yieh Phui claims to be a successor–ininterest to Yieh Hsing after it acquired Yieh Hsing’s pipe production facilities. On April 6, 2005, the Department issued Yieh Phui a questionnaire requesting further details on the acquisition of the pipe facilities. Yieh Phui responded on April 29, 2005. On May 17, 2005, the Department issued a second supplemental questionnaire, to which Yieh Phui responded on June 13, 2005. The evidence on the record shows that Yieh Phui operates in essentially the same manner in terms of production, management and customer base as did Yieh Hsing prior to the transfer of its pipe facilities. In analyzing the totality of the factors on the record with respect to the transfer of the pipe operations, the Department preliminarily concluded that Yieh Phui BILLING CODE 3410–11–M DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE International Trade Administration [A–583–008] Certain Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from Taiwan: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstance Review Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce.

See Preliminary Results. Scope of the Order Imports covered by this order are shipments of certain circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes. The Department defines such merchandise as welded carbon steel pipes and tubes of circular cross section, with walls not thinner than 0.065 inch and 0.375 inch or more but not over 4.5 inches in outside diameter. These products are commonly referred to in the industry as ‘‘standard pipe’’ and are produced to various American Society for Testing Materials specifications, most notably A–53, A–120 and A–135. Standard pipe is currently classified under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers 7306.30.5025, 7306.30.5032, 7306.30.5040, and 7306.30.5055. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under the order is dispositive. Final Results of Changed Circumstance Review For the reasons stated in the Preliminary Results, we determine that Yieh Phui is the successor–in-interest to Yieh Hsing for antidumping duty purposes. The Department did not receive any comments or requests for a hearing from either party within the time frames established in the Preliminary Results. As a result, Yieh Phui will receive the same antidumping duty cash–deposit rate (i.e., 1.61 percent) that was calculated and applied to Yieh Hsing during the most recent administrative review under this order. See Certain Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from Taiwan: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 69 FR 58390 (September 30, 2004). The Department will instruct the U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits at a rate of 1.61 percent for all entries made by Yieh Phui of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of this changed circumstance review.

The preliminary results of this administrative review are currently due December 1, 2005. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department shall issue preliminary results in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order for which a review is requested and the final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within the specified time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 days and 180 days, respectively. Completion of the preliminary results within the originally anticipated time limit, December 1, 2005, is impracticable because this review requires the Department to analyze complex issues regarding Watex’s corporate structure and its affiliations and corporate relationships. Because it is not practicable to complete the review within the time specified under the Act, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results by 14 days to December 15, 2005, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. The deadline for the final results of this administrative review continues to be 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.

Completion of the final results within the 120–day period is not practicable due to a delay in the schedule for submission of interested party arguments and given the number and complexity of issues raised in this review segment, including issues regarding depreciation and financial expenses. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for issuing E:\FR\FM\30NON1.SGM 30NON1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 15, 2005, Yieh Phui requested the Department to conduct 
an expedited changed circumstance review of the antidumping duty order 
on certain circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Taiwan. 
The Department determined that the information submitted by Yieh Phui 
was sufficient to warrant initiation of changed circumstance review 
and, on April 4, 2005, the Department published the Initiation Notice 
for this review. Yieh Phui claims to be a successor-in-interest to Yieh 
Hsing after it acquired Yieh Hsing's pipe production facilities. On 
April 6, 2005, the Department issued Yieh Phui a questionnaire 
requesting further details on the acquisition of the pipe facilities. 
Yieh Phui responded on April 29, 2005. On May 17, 2005, the Department 
issued a second supplemental questionnaire, to which Yieh Phui 
responded on June 13, 2005.
    The evidence on the record shows that Yieh Phui operates in 
essentially the same manner in terms of production, management and 
customer base as did Yieh Hsing prior to the transfer of its pipe 
facilities. In analyzing the totality of the factors on the record with 
respect to the transfer of the pipe operations, the Department 
preliminarily concluded that Yieh Phui was the successor-in-interest to 
Yieh Hsing and ought to be accorded the same antidumping duty treatment 
as its predecessor. See Preliminary Results.

Scope of the Order

    Imports covered by this order are shipments of certain circular 
welded carbon steel pipes and tubes. The Department defines such 
merchandise as welded carbon steel pipes and tubes of circular cross 
section, with walls not thinner than 0.065 inch and 0.375 inch or more 
but not over 4.5 inches in outside diameter. These products are 
commonly referred to in the industry as ``standard pipe'' and are 
produced to various American Society for Testing Materials 
specifications, most notably A-53, A-120 and A-135. Standard pipe is 
currently classified under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United 
States (HTSUS) item numbers 7306.30.5025, 7306.30.5032, 7306.30.5040, 
and 7306.30.5055. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for 
convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the 
merchandise under the order is dispositive.

Final Results of Changed Circumstance Review

    For the reasons stated in the Preliminary Results, we determine 
that Yieh Phui is the successor-in-interest to Yieh Hsing for 
antidumping duty purposes. The Department did not receive any comments 
or requests for a hearing from either party within the time frames 
established in the Preliminary Results. As a result, Yieh Phui will 
receive the same antidumping duty cash-deposit rate (i.e., 1.61 
percent) that was calculated and applied to Yieh Hsing during the most 
recent administrative review under this order. See Certain Circular 
Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from Taiwan: Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 69 FR 58390 (September 30, 
2004). The Department will instruct the U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection to collect cash deposits at a rate of 1.61 percent for all 
entries made by Yieh Phui of the subject merchandise entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of 
publication of the final results of this changed circumstance review.
