SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On April 7, 2008, the Department published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on circular welded pipes and tubes from Thailand. See Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from Thailand: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 18749 (April 7, 2008) (Preliminary Results). In the Preliminary Results, the Department stated its intention to request additional information from Saha Thai on certain issues for which the record of this administrative review was not completely clear. On April 11, 2008, we issued a supplemental questionnaire to Saha Thai and its affiliated resellers. Saha Thai submitted its response on May 5, 2008. We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. On April 23, 2008, we revised the due dates for comments and informed parties of the same. On May 21 and May 28, 2008, we received timely case briefs and rebuttal briefs, respectively, from both petitioners and respondent. On July 22, 2008, the Department extended the final results from August 5, 2008 to October 6, 2008. See Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from Thailand: Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 42548 (July 22, 2008). Period of Review The period of review (POR) is March 1, 2006 through February 28, 2007. Scope of the Order The products covered by this antidumping order are certain welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Thailand. The subject merchandise has PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 61019 an outside diameter of 0.375 inches or more, but not exceeding 16 inches. These products, which are commonly referred to in the industry as ‘‘standard pipe’’ or ‘‘structural tubing,’’ are hereinafter designated as ‘‘pipes and tubes.’’ The merchandise is classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers 7306.30.1000, 7306.30.5025, 7306.30.5032, 7306.30.5040, 7306.30.5055, 7306.30.5085, and 7306.30.5090. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and purposes of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), our written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Analysis of Comments Received The issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to this administrative review are addressed in the Memorandum from Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration to David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration: Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Circular Welded Pipes and Tubes from Thailand (Decision Memorandum), dated concurrently with this notice and which is hereby adopted by this notice.

The paper copy and electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of comments received and our consideration of information submitted by Saha Thai on May 5, 2008 in its supplemental questionnaire response, received subsequent to the issuance of the preliminary results, we have made adjustments to our margin calculations. We have granted Saha Thai a duty drawback adjustment under section 772(c)(1)(B) the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), based on the exemption of import duties on raw materials used in the exported pipes and tube. However, we have adjusted the calculation of the yield factor used in calculating this duty drawback adjustment. We also added the value of these exempted import duties to the cost of manufacture. For these final results, we decided to use the U.S. customs duty as reported by Saha Thai. In addition, E:\FR\FM\15OCN1.SGM 15OCN1
