Welded Non-Alloy Steel Pipe and Tube from Mexico: Initiation of New 
Shipper Antidumping Duty Review, 71 FR 38851 (July 10, 2006).
    On April 20, 2007, the Department published in the Federal Register 
its preliminary intent to rescind the antidumping duty new shipper 
review of certain circular welded non-alloy steel pipe from Mexico for

Rescind. No party commented on our preliminary intent to rescind the 
new shipper review for Conduit.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise under review is circular welded non-alloy steel 
pipes and tubes, of circular cross-section, not more than 406.4 
millimeters (16 inches) in outside diameter, regardless of wall 
thickness, surface finish (black, galvanized, or painted), or end 
finish (plain end, beveled end, threaded, or threaded and coupled). 
These pipes and tubes are generally known as standard pipes and tubes 
and are intended for the low-pressure conveyance of water, steam, 
natural gas, and other liquids and gases in plumbing and heating 
systems, air conditioning units, automatic sprinkler systems, and other 
related uses, and generally meet ASTM A-53 specifications. Standard 
pipe may also be used for light load-bearing applications, such as for 
fence tubing, and as structural pipe tubing used for framing and 
support members for reconstruction or load-bearing purposes in the 
construction, shipbuilding, trucking, farm equipment, and related 
industries. Unfinished conduit pipe is also included in these orders. 
All carbon steel pipes and tubes within the physical description 
outlined above are included within the scope of these orders, except

Rescission of Review

    The Department may rescind a new shipper review with respect to an 
exporter or producer if the Department concludes that there were no 
entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise to the United 
States during the period of review. See 19 CFR Sec.  351.214(f)(2). The 
Department has previously detailed its findings at verification with 
respect to the merchandise sold by Conduit subject to this new shipper 
review. See Intent to Rescind at 19881. As noted above, the Department 
received no comments from interested parties. Therefore, based on the 
findings at verification, the Department determines that the 
merchandise sold by Conduit, and subject to this new shipper review, is 
not within the scope of the order of certain circular welded non-alloy 
steel pipe from Mexico. As a result, the Department is rescinding this 
new shipper review.

Notification

    The Department will notify U.S. Customs and Border Protection that 
bonding is no longer permitted to fulfill security requirements for 
shipments by Conduit of certain circular welded non-alloy steel pipe
