SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On July 17, 2007, the Department initiated the antidumping duty PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 investigation of light-walled rectangular pipe and tube from the Republic of Korea. See Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigations: Light-Walled Rectangular Pipe and Tube from the Republic of Korea, Mexico, Turkey, and the People’s Republic of China, (Initiation Notice), 72 FR 40274 (July 24, 2007). The Petitioners in this investigation are Allied Tube and Conduit, Atlas Tube, Bull Moose Tube Company, California Steel and Tube, EXLTUBE, Hannibal Industries, Leavitt Tube Company, Maruichi American Corporation, Searing Industries, Southland Tube, Vest Inc., Welded Tube, and Western Tube and Conduit (Petitioners).

See Initiation Notice, 72 FR 40274, 40275 (July 24, 2007). No party submitted comments on the scope. On August 28, 2007, the United States International Trade Commission (the Commission) preliminarily determined there is a reasonable indication that imports of light-walled rectangular pipe and tube from Korea, Mexico and Turkey are materially injuring the U.S. industry and notified the Department of its findings. See Light-Walled Rectangular Pipe and Tube From China, Korea, Mexico, and Turkey, Investigation Nos. 701–TA–449 and 731–TA–1118–1121 (Preliminary), 72 FR 49310 (August 28, 2007). Section 777A(c)(1) of the Tariff Act directs the Department to calculate individual dumping margins for each known exporter and producer of the subject merchandise. The Department identified a large number of producers and exporters of light-walled rectangular pipe and tube from the Republic of Korea (Korea) and determined that it was not practicable to examine each known exporter/producer of the subject merchandise, as provided in section 777A(c)(2) of the Tariff Act. The Department sent quantity and value (Q&V) questionnaires to the companies identified in the petition, as well as to other companies identified during our analysis. On July 31, 2007, the Department sent Q&V questionnaires to the following companies: Ahshin Pipe & Tube, Dong-A Steel Pipe Co. Ltd., Han Gyu Rae Steel, Co., Ltd., HiSteel Co. Ltd., Jinbang Steel Co. Ltd., Joong Won, Kukje Steel Co. (Kukje), Ltd., Miju Steel Mfg. Co. Ltd., Nexteel, SeAH Steel Corporation, Ltd. (SeAH), and Yujin Steel Industry Co.
