EFFECTIVE DATES: February 7, 2008. SUMMARY: On January 23, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) published the preliminary determination of sales at less than fair value (‘‘LTFV’’) in the antidumping investigation of certain steel nails from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). See Certain Steel Nails From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Partial Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances and Postponement of Final Determination, 73 FR 3928 (January 23, 2008) (‘‘Preliminary Determination’’). We are amending our preliminary determination to correct certain ministerial errors with respect to the antidumping duty margin calculation for Illinois Tool Works Inc. and Paslode Fasteners (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (collectively, ‘‘Paslode’’). The corrections to Paslode’s margin also affect the margin applied to companies granted separate-rate status.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 23, 2008, the Department published in the Federal Register the preliminary determination that certain steel nails (‘‘nails’’) from the PRC are being, or are likely to be, sold in the United States at LTFV, as provided in section 733 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). See Preliminary Determination. On January 22, 2008, Paslode and Petitioners1 filed timely allegations of ministerial errors contained in the Department’s Preliminary Determination. After reviewing the allegations, we have determined that the Preliminary Determination included significant ministerial errors. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), we have made changes, as described below, to the Preliminary Determination. Period of Investigation The period of investigation (‘‘POI’’) is October 1, 2006, through March 31, 2007. This period corresponds to the two most recent fiscal quarters prior to the month of the filing of the petition, May 2007. See 19 CFR 351.204(b)(1). Scope of Investigation The merchandise covered by this investigation includes certain steel nails having a shaft length up to 12 inches. Certain steel nails include, but are not limited to, nails made of round wire and nails that are cut. Certain steel nails may be of one piece construction or constructed of two or more pieces. Certain steel nails may be produced from any type of steel, and have a variety of finishes, heads, shanks, point types, shaft lengths and shaft diameters. Finishes include, but are not limited to, coating in vinyl, zinc (galvanized, whether by electroplating or hotdipping one or more times), phosphate cement, and paint. Head styles include, but are not limited to, flat, projection, cupped, oval, brad, headless, double, countersunk, and sinker. Shank styles include, but are not limited to, smooth, barbed, screw threaded, ring shank and fluted shank styles. Screw-threaded nails subject to this proceeding are driven using direct force and not by turning the fastener using a tool that engages with the head. Point styles 1Mid Continent Nail Corporation, Davis Wire Corporation, Gerdau Ameristeel Corporation (Atlas Steel & Wire Division), Maze Nails (Division of W.H. Maze Company), Treasure Coast Fasteners, Inc., and the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union (collectively, ‘‘Petitioners’’). PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 include, but are not limited to, diamond, blunt, needle, chisel and no point. Finished nails may be sold in bulk, or they may be collated into strips or coils using materials such as plastic, paper, or wire. Certain steel nails subject to this proceeding are currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) subheadings 7317.00.55, 7317.00.65 and 7317.00.75. Excluded from the scope of this proceeding are roofing nails of all lengths and diameter, whether collated or in bulk, and whether or not galvanized. Steel roofing nails are specifically enumerated and identified in ASTM Standard F 1667 (2005 revision) as Type I, Style 20 nails. Also excluded from the scope of this proceeding are corrugated nails. A corrugated nail is made of a small strip of corrugated steel with sharp points on one side. Also excluded from the scope of this proceeding are fasteners suitable for use in powder-actuated hand tools, not threaded and threaded, which are currently classified under HTSUS 7317.00.20 and 7317.00.30. Also excluded from the scope of this proceeding are thumb tacks, which are currently classified under HTSUS 7317.00.10.00. Also excluded from the scope of this proceeding are certain brads and finish nails that are equal to or less than 0.0720 inches in shank diameter, round or rectangular in cross section, between 0.375 inches and 2.5 inches in length, and that are collated with adhesive or polyester film tape backed with a heat seal adhesive. While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of these investigations is dispositive. Significant Ministerial Error Ministerial errors are defined in section 735(e) of the Act as ‘‘errors in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical errors resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other type of unintentional error which the administering authority considers ministerial.’’ Section 351.224(e) of the Department’s regulations provides that the Department ‘‘will analyze any comments received and, if appropriate, correct any significant ministerial error by amending the preliminary determination* * *.’’ A significant ministerial error is defined as an error, the correction of which, singly or in combination with other errors, would result in (1) a change of at least five absolute percentage points in, but not less than 25 percent of, the weighted- E:\FR\FM\07FEN1.SGM 07FEN1 7255 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 26 / Thursday, February 7, 2008 / Notices average dumping margin calculated in the original (erroneous) preliminary determination; or (2) a difference between a weighted-average dumping margin of zero or de minimis and a weighted-average dumping margin of greater than de minimis or vice versa. See 19 CFR 351.224(g). Ministerial Error Allegations From Petitioners Billing Adjustments Ministerial Error Allegations From Paslode Rail Freight Paslode argues that the Department incorrectly applied the rail freight surrogate value in calculating the antidumping duty margin. Paslode notes in calculating the margin, the Department set the surrogate value for rails to 6.07 rupees per kilogram. See Memorandum to the File from Matthew Renkey, through Alex Villanueva, Program Manager, AD/CVD Operations, Office 9, and James C. Doyle, Director, AD/CVD Operations, Office 9: Certain Steel Nails from the People’s Republic of China: Surrogate Values for the Preliminary Determination, dated January 15, 2008 (‘‘Surrogate Value Memorandum’’) at 11. According to Paslode, the calculation was incorrectly reading the Indian freight rates provided on the Indian Railways website as if they were stated on a per quintal (100) kilogram basis. However, Paslode asserts that the Indian freight rates provided on the Indian Railways website are stated on a per ton (1000) kilogram basis. See Petitioners’ December 3, 2007, Surrogate Value Submission at Exhibit 52. Therefore, Paslode argues that the correct freight rate is 0.607 rupees per kilogram. We agree that the Department incorrectly calculated the rail surrogate value. This error qualifies as a ministerial error in accordance with section 735(e) of the Act. Moreover, when considered in combination with the other corrections discussed below, this error constitutes a significant ministerial error in accordance with section 351.224(g) of the Department’s regulations. Petitioners state that the Department inadvertently did not account for Paslode’s reported billing adjustments. Petitioners argue that the Department should adjust the gross unit price to account for these billing adjustments in the targeted dumping analysis program. In addition, Petitioners argue that this same change needs to be made to Paslode’s margin calculation programs. We agree that the Department did not account for certain billing adjustments in the targeted dumping and margin calculation programs. Paslode reported that it incurred billing adjustments in its January 3, 2008, supplemental Section C questionnaire response and we indicated that we were adjusting for these billing adjustments. See Memorandum to the File from Nicole Bankhead, Senior Case Analyst: Program Analysis for the Preliminary Determination of Antidumping Duty Investigation of Certain Steel Nails from the People’s Republic of China: Paslode, dated January 15, 2008 (‘‘Paslode Analysis Memorandum’’). However, the Department inadvertently did not include billing adjustments in Paslode’s margin calculation program. This error qualifies as a ministerial error in accordance with section 735(e) of the Act. Moreover, when considered in combination with the other corrections discussed below, this error constitutes a significant ministerial error in accordance with section 351.224(g) of the Department’s regulations. Profit Surrogate Value Petitioners argue that the Department used the incorrect surrogate value for profit in the CEP profit calculation in Paslode’s targeted dumping analysis program. We agree that the Department inadvertently mis-entered the profit surrogate value in the CEP profit calculation in Paslode’s targeted dumping analysis program. This error qualifies as a ministerial error in accordance with section 735(e) of the Act. Moreover, when considered in combination with the other corrections discussed in this notice, this error constitutes a significant ministerial error in accordance with section 351.224(g) of the Department’s regulations. Brokerage and Handling Surrogate Value Petitioners argue that the Department inadvertently entered the incomplete surrogate brokerage and handling charge in the calculation of Paslode’s movement expenses. We agree that the Department inadvertently only entered the surrogate brokerage and handling charge out to two decimal points instead of five in the calculation of Paslode’s movement expenses. This error qualifies as a ministerial error in accordance with section 735(e) of the Act. Moreover, when considered together with the other corrections discussed in this notice, this error constitutes a significant ministerial error in accordance with section 351.224(g) of the Department’s regulations. Amended Preliminary Determination We determine that these allegations qualify as ministerial errors as defined in section 351.224(g) of the Department’s regulations because they result in a change of more than five absolute percentage points to Paslode’s dumping margin. Accordingly, we have corrected the errors alleged by Paslode and Petitioners. See Memorandum to the File from Nicole Bankhead, Senior Case Analyst: Program Analysis for the Amended Preliminary Determination of Antidumping Duty Investigation of Certain Steel Nails from the People’s Republic of China: Paslode, dated January 30, 2008 (‘‘Paslode Amended Prelim Analysis Memorandum’’). As a result of correcting the above errors made to Paslode’s margin, the margin for the companies granted separate rate status must also be revised because the margin for those companies was partially derived from Paslode’s margin. See Paslode Amended Prelim Analysis Memorandum at Exhibit 5. As a result of corrections of ministerial errors, the weighted-average dumping margins are as follows: CERTAIN STEEL NAILS FROM THE PRC 2 Weightedaverage margin (percent) jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Exporter Producer Paslode Fasteners (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.∧ ...

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Postponement of Preliminary Determination On October 11, 2007, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated the antidumping duty investigation of raw flexible magnets from Taiwan. See Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigations: Raw Flexible Magnets from the People’s Republic of China and Taiwan, 72 FR 59071 (October 18, 2007). The notice of initiation stated that the Department would issue its preliminary determinations for this investigation no later than 140 days after the date of issuance of the initiation (e.g., February 28, 2008), in accordance with section 733(b)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

The petitioner requested postponement of the preliminary determination in order to allow the Department additional time to address several complex issues such as the appropriate model-matching characteristics. For the reason identified by the petitioner and because there are no compelling reasons to deny the request, the Department is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determination with respect to Taiwan under section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Act by 50 days to April 18, 2008. The deadline for the final determination will continue PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determination, unless extended.

Certain Steel Nails From the People's Republic of China: Amended 
Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

EFFECTIVE DATES: February 7, 2008.
SUMMARY: On January 23, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the 
``Department'') published the preliminary determination of sales at 
less than fair value (``LTFV'') in the antidumping investigation of 
certain steel nails from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). See 
Certain Steel Nails From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Partial Affirmative 
Determination of Critical Circumstances and Postponement of Final 
Determination, 73 FR 3928 (January 23, 2008) (``Preliminary 
Determination''). We are amending our preliminary determination to 
correct certain ministerial errors with respect to the antidumping duty 
margin calculation for Illinois Tool Works Inc. and Paslode Fasteners 
(Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (collectively, ``Paslode''). The corrections to 
Paslode's margin also affect the margin applied to companies granted 
separate-rate status.

U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC, 20230; telephone: (202) 482-9068.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 23, 2008, the Department 
published in the Federal Register the preliminary determination that 
certain steel nails (``nails'') from the PRC are being, or are likely 
to be, sold in the United States at LTFV, as provided in section 733 of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). See Preliminary 
Determination.
    On January 22, 2008, Paslode and Petitioners\1\ filed timely 
allegations of ministerial errors contained in the Department's 
Preliminary Determination. After reviewing the allegations, we have 
determined that the Preliminary Determination included significant 
ministerial errors. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), we 
have made changes, as described below, to the Preliminary 
Determination.

Period of Investigation

    The period of investigation (``POI'') is October 1, 2006, through 
March 31, 2007. This period corresponds to the two most recent fiscal 
quarters prior to the month of the filing of the petition, May 2007. 
See 19 CFR 351.204(b)(1).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of Investigation

    The merchandise covered by this investigation includes certain 
steel nails having a shaft length up to 12 inches. Certain steel nails 
include, but are not limited to, nails made of round wire and nails 
that are cut. Certain steel nails may be of one piece construction or 
constructed of two or more pieces. Certain steel nails may be produced 
from any type of steel, and have a variety of finishes, heads, shanks, 
point types, shaft lengths and shaft diameters. Finishes include, but 
are not limited to, coating in vinyl, zinc (galvanized, whether by 
electroplating or hot-dipping one or more times), phosphate cement, and 
paint. Head styles include, but are not limited to, flat, projection, 
cupped, oval, brad, headless, double, countersunk, and sinker. Shank 
styles include, but are not limited to, smooth, barbed, screw threaded, 
ring shank and fluted shank styles. Screw-threaded nails subject to 
this proceeding are driven using direct force and not by turning the 
fastener using a tool that engages with the head. Point styles include, 
but are not limited to, diamond, blunt, needle, chisel and no point. 
Finished nails may be sold in bulk, or they may be collated into strips 
or coils using materials such as plastic, paper, or wire. Certain steel 
nails subject to this proceeding are currently classified under the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') subheadings 
7317.00.55, 7317.00.65 and 7317.00.75.
    Excluded from the scope of this proceeding are roofing nails of all 
lengths and diameter, whether collated or in bulk, and whether or not 
galvanized. Steel roofing nails are specifically enumerated and 
identified in ASTM Standard F 1667 (2005 revision) as Type I, Style 20 
nails. Also excluded from the scope of this proceeding are corrugated 
nails. A corrugated nail is made of a small strip of corrugated steel 
with sharp points on one side. Also excluded from the scope of this 
proceeding are fasteners suitable for use in powder-actuated hand 
tools, not threaded and threaded, which are currently classified under 
HTSUS 7317.00.20 and 7317.00.30. Also excluded from the scope of this 
proceeding are thumb tacks, which are currently classified under HTSUS 
7317.00.10.00. Also excluded from the scope of this proceeding are 
certain brads and finish nails that are equal to or less than 0.0720 
inches in shank diameter, round or rectangular in cross section, 
between 0.375 inches and 2.5 inches in length, and that are collated 
with adhesive or polyester film tape backed with a heat seal adhesive.
    While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and 
customs purposes, the written description of the scope of these 
investigations is dispositive.

Significant Ministerial Error

    Ministerial errors are defined in section 735(e) of the Act as 
``errors in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, 
clerical errors resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the 
like, and any other type of unintentional error which the administering 
authority considers ministerial.'' Section 351.224(e) of the 
Department's regulations provides that the Department ``will analyze 
any comments received and, if appropriate, correct any significant 
ministerial error by amending the preliminary determination* * *.'' A 
significant ministerial error is defined as an error, the correction of 
which, singly or in combination with other errors, would result in (1) 
a change of at least five absolute percentage points in, but not less 
than 25 percent of, the weighted-

[[Page 7255]]

average dumping margin calculated in the original (erroneous) 
preliminary determination; or (2) a difference between a weighted-
average dumping margin of zero or de minimis and a weighted-average 
dumping margin of greater than de minimis or vice versa. See 19 CFR 
351.224(g).

Ministerial Error Allegations From Paslode

Rail Freight

    Paslode argues that the Department incorrectly applied the rail 
freight surrogate value in calculating the antidumping duty margin. 
Paslode notes in calculating the margin, the Department set the 
surrogate value for rails to 6.07 rupees per kilogram. See Memorandum 
to the File from Matthew Renkey, through Alex Villanueva, Program 
Manager, AD/CVD Operations, Office 9, and James C. Doyle, Director, AD/
CVD Operations, Office 9: Certain Steel Nails from the People's 
Republic of China: Surrogate Values for the Preliminary Determination, 
dated January 15, 2008 (``Surrogate Value Memorandum'') at 11. 
According to Paslode, the calculation was incorrectly reading the 
Indian freight rates provided on the Indian Railways website as if they 
were stated on a per quintal (100) kilogram basis. However, Paslode 
asserts that the Indian freight rates provided on the Indian Railways 
website are stated on a per ton (1000) kilogram basis. See Petitioners' 
December 3, 2007, Surrogate Value Submission at Exhibit 52. Therefore, 
Paslode argues that the correct freight rate is 0.607 rupees per 
kilogram.
    We agree that the Department incorrectly calculated the rail 
surrogate value. This error qualifies as a ministerial error in 
accordance with section 735(e) of the Act. Moreover, when considered in 
combination with the other corrections discussed below, this error 
constitutes a significant ministerial error in accordance with section 
351.224(g) of the Department's regulations.

Ministerial Error Allegations From Petitioners

Billing Adjustments

    Petitioners state that the Department inadvertently did not account 
for Paslode's reported billing adjustments. Petitioners argue that the 
Department should adjust the gross unit price to account for these 
billing adjustments in the targeted dumping analysis program. In 
addition, Petitioners argue that this same change needs to be made to 
Paslode's margin calculation programs.
    We agree that the Department did not account for certain billing 
adjustments in the targeted dumping and margin calculation programs. 
Paslode reported that it incurred billing adjustments in its January 3, 
2008, supplemental Section C questionnaire response and we indicated 
that we were adjusting for these billing adjustments. See Memorandum to 
the File from Nicole Bankhead, Senior Case Analyst: Program Analysis 
for the Preliminary Determination of Antidumping Duty Investigation of 
Certain Steel Nails from the People's Republic of China: Paslode, dated 
January 15, 2008 (``Paslode Analysis Memorandum''). However, the 
Department inadvertently did not include billing adjustments in 
Paslode's margin calculation program. This error qualifies as a 
ministerial error in accordance with section 735(e) of the Act. 
Moreover, when considered in combination with the other corrections 
discussed below, this error constitutes a significant ministerial error 
in accordance with section 351.224(g) of the Department's regulations.

Profit Surrogate Value

    Petitioners argue that the Department used the incorrect surrogate 
value for profit in the CEP profit calculation in Paslode's targeted 
dumping analysis program.
    We agree that the Department inadvertently mis-entered the profit 
surrogate value in the CEP profit calculation in Paslode's targeted 
dumping analysis program. This error qualifies as a ministerial error 
in accordance with section 735(e) of the Act. Moreover, when considered 
in combination with the other corrections discussed in this notice, 
this error constitutes a significant ministerial error in accordance 
with section 351.224(g) of the Department's regulations.

Brokerage and Handling Surrogate Value

    Petitioners argue that the Department inadvertently entered the 
incomplete surrogate brokerage and handling charge in the calculation 
of Paslode's movement expenses.
    We agree that the Department inadvertently only entered the 
surrogate brokerage and handling charge out to two decimal points 
instead of five in the calculation of Paslode's movement expenses. This 
error qualifies as a ministerial error in accordance with section 
735(e) of the Act. Moreover, when considered together with the other 
corrections discussed in this notice, this error constitutes a 
significant ministerial error in accordance with section 351.224(g) of 
the Department's regulations.

Amended Preliminary Determination

    We determine that these allegations qualify as ministerial errors 
as defined in section 351.224(g) of the Department's regulations 
because they result in a change of more than five absolute percentage 
points to Paslode's dumping margin. Accordingly, we have corrected the 
errors alleged by Paslode and Petitioners. See Memorandum to the File 
from Nicole Bankhead, Senior Case Analyst: Program Analysis for the 
Amended Preliminary Determination of Antidumping Duty Investigation of 
Certain Steel Nails from the People's Republic of China: Paslode, dated 
January 30, 2008 (``Paslode Amended Prelim Analysis Memorandum'').
    As a result of correcting the above errors made to Paslode's 
margin, the margin for the companies granted separate rate status must 
also be revised because the margin for those companies was partially 
derived from Paslode's margin. See Paslode Amended Prelim Analysis 
Memorandum at Exhibit 5.
    As a result of corrections of ministerial errors, the weighted-
average dumping margins are as follows:
