SUMMARY: On November 7, 2005, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published its affirmative preliminary determination in this proceeding. See Notice of Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Artist Canvas from the People’s Republic of China, 70 FR 67412 (November 7, 2005) (‘‘Preliminary Determination’’). While the Department did not receive any allegations of ministerial errors in the Preliminary Determination, the Department inadvertently stated an inaccurate manufacturer/producer name in the provided combination rate, and inadvertently failed to include one combination rate. In the Preliminary Determination, the Department stated it would calculate combination rates for certain respondents that are eligible for a separate rate in this investigation. Thus, we granted Jiangsu Animal By–products Import & Export Group Corp. (‘‘Jiangsu By–products’’) (i.e., a separate rate applicant) a separate rate and calculated a combination rate for Jiangsu By– products. However, in our Weighted– AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 74291 Average Dumping Margins section, the Department inadvertently stated an inaccurate manufacturer/producer name in the provided combination rate for Jiangsu By–products, and inadvertently failed to include one combination rate for Jiangsu By–products. Therefore, we are correcting the Weighted–Average Dumping Margins section to include the additional combination rate and to correct the manufacturer/producer name. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scope The products covered by this investigation are artist canvases regardless of dimension and/or size, whether assembled or unassembled, that have been primed/coated, whether or not made from cotton, whether or not archival, whether bleached or unbleached, and whether or not containing an ink receptive top coat. Priming/coating includes the application of a solution, designed to promote the adherence of artist materials, such as paint or ink, to the fabric. Artist canvases (i.e., pre– stretched canvases, canvas panels, canvas pads, canvas rolls (including bulk rolls that have been primed), printable canvases, floor cloths, and placemats) are tightly woven prepared painting and/or printing surfaces. Artist canvas and stretcher strips (whether or not made of wood and whether or not assembled) included within a kit or set are covered by this proceeding. Artist canvases subject to this investigation are currently classifiable under subheadings 5901.90.20.00 and 5901.90.40.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). Specifically excluded from the scope of this investigation are tracing cloths, ‘‘paint–by-number’’ or ‘‘paint–it-yourself’’ artist canvases with a copyrighted preprinted outline, pattern, or design, whether or not included in a painting set or kit.1 Also excluded are stretcher strips, whether or not made from wood, so long as they are not incorporated into artist canvases or sold as part of an artist canvas kit or set. While HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of this proceeding is dispositive. Amended Preliminary Determination As a result of our correction to the Preliminary Determination, we have determined that the following 1 Artist canvases with a non-copyrighted preprinted outline, pattern, or design are included in the scope, whether or not included in a painting set or kit.

On August 31, 2005, United States Steel Corporation (‘‘U.S. Steel’’), a domestic producer of the subject merchandise, made a timely request that the Department conduct an administrative review of Siderca S.A.I.C.

On November 7, 2005, Siderca submitted a letter to the Department, certifying that the company made no shipments or entries for consumption in the United States of the subject merchandise during the POR. Additionally, Siderca also provided certification to the Department that the company’s U.S. affiliate, Tenaris Global Services U.S.A.

SUMMARY: On November 7, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published its affirmative preliminary determination in 
this proceeding. See Notice of Preliminary Determination of Sales at 
Less Than Fair Value: Certain Artist Canvas from the People's Republic 
of China, 70 FR 67412 (November 7, 2005) (``Preliminary 
Determination''). While the Department did not receive any allegations 
of ministerial errors in the Preliminary Determination, the Department 
inadvertently stated an inaccurate manufacturer/producer name in the 
provided combination rate, and inadvertently failed to include one 
combination rate.
    In the Preliminary Determination, the Department stated it would 
calculate combination rates for certain respondents that are eligible 
for a separate rate in this investigation. Thus, we granted Jiangsu 
Animal By-products Import & Export Group Corp. (``Jiangsu By-
products'') (i.e., a separate rate applicant) a separate rate and 
calculated a combination rate for Jiangsu By-products. However, in our 
Weighted-Average Dumping Margins section, the Department inadvertently 
stated an inaccurate manufacturer/producer name in the provided 
combination rate for Jiangsu By-products, and inadvertently failed to 
include one combination rate for Jiangsu By-products. Therefore, we are 
correcting the Weighted-Average Dumping Margins section to include the 
additional combination rate and to correct the manufacturer/producer 
name.
