SUMMARY: On July 13, 2006, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of the administrative review of the order on certain stainless steel butt–weld pipe fittings from Taiwan. See Certain Stainless Steel Butt–Weld Pipe Fittings From Taiwan: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Notice of Intent To Rescind in Part, 71 FR 39663 (July 13, 2006) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). The merchandise covered by this order is certain stainless steel butt–weld pipe fittings from Taiwan as described in the ‘‘Scope of the Order’’ section of this notice. The period of review (‘‘POR’’) is June 1, 2004, through May 31, 2005. We gave interested parties an opportunity to comment on the preliminary results. Based upon our analysis of the comments received, we made one change to the margin calculation. The final weight–averaged dumping margin is listed below in the section titled ‘‘Final Results of Review.’’ EFFECTIVE DATE: November 20, 2006. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Helen Kramer or Judy Lao, Office 7, AD/ CVD Operations, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–0405 or (202) 482– 7924, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background The Department’s preliminary results of review were published on July 13, 2006. See Preliminary Results. We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. We received written comments on August 14, 2006, from Flowline Division of Markovitz Enterprise, Inc., Shaw Allow Piping Products, Inc., Gerlin, Inc., and Taylor Forge Stainless, Inc., (collectively, ‘‘petitioners’’), and from Ta Chen Stainless Steel Pipe, Ltd. (‘‘Ta Chen’’). On August 21, 2006, we received rebuttal comments from petitioners and PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Ta Chen. The Department is conducting this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). Scope of the Order The products subject to this order are certain stainless steel butt–weld pipe fittings, whether finished or unfinished, under 14 inches inside diameter. Certain welded stainless steel butt–weld pipe fittings (‘‘pipe fittings’’) are used to connect pipe sections in piping systems where conditions require welded connections. The subject merchandise is used where one or more of the following conditions is a factor in designing the piping system: (1) Corrosion of the piping system will occur if material other than stainless steel is used; (2) contamination of the material in the system by the system itself must be prevented; (3) high temperatures are present; (4) extreme low temperatures are present; and (5) high pressures are contained within the system. Pipe fittings come in a variety of shapes, with the following five shapes the most basic: ‘‘elbows,’’ ‘‘tees,’’ ‘‘reducers,’’ ‘‘stub ends,’’ and ‘‘caps.’’ The edges of finished pipe fittings are beveled. Threaded, grooved, and bolted fittings are excluded from this review. The pipe fittings subject to this review are classifiable under subheading 7307.23.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of this review is dispositive. Pipe fittings manufactured to American Society of Testing and Materials specification A774 are included in the scope of this order. Partial Rescission of Review In the Preliminary Results, the Department issued a notice of intent to rescind the review with respect to Liang Feng Stainless Steel Fitting Co., Ltd. (‘‘Liang Feng’’), Tru–Flow Industrial Co., Ltd. (‘‘Tru–Flow’’), Censor International Corporation (‘‘Censor’’) and PFP Taiwan Co., Ltd. (‘‘PFP’’), because we found that they had no entries of subject merchandise during the POR. See Preliminary Results at 39663. As the Department received no comments on this notice of intent to rescind we continue to find that rescission of the review concerning Liang Feng, Tru–Flow, Censor, and PFP is appropriate. Therefore, the Department is rescinding the review with respect to Liang Feng, Tru–Flow, Censor, and PFP. E:\FR\FM\20NON1.SGM 20NON1
