EFFECTIVE DATE: October 20, 2008. SUMMARY: On September 10, 2008, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published in the Federal Register the final results of the second administrative review of the antidumping duty order on chlorinated isocyanurates from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). See Chlorinated Isocyanurates from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 52645 (September 10, 2008) (‘‘Final Results’’), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. The period of review covered is June 1, 2006, through May 31, 2007. We are amending our Final Results to correct ministerial errors made in the calculation of the antidumping duty margins of Hebei Jiheng Chemical Company Ltd. (‘‘Jiheng’’) and Nanning Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. (‘‘Nanning’’) pursuant to section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jennifer Moats or Charles Riggle, AD/ CVD Operations, Office 8, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–5047 or (202) 482– 0650, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 10, 2008, Clearon Corporation and Occidental Chemical Corporation (‘‘Petitioners’’), Petitioners in the underlying investigation, filed timely ministerial error allegations with respect to the Department’s AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62249 antidumping duty margin calculation in the Final Results. Scope of the Order The products covered by this order are chlorinated isocyanurates, as described below: Chlorinated isocyanurates are derivatives of cyanuric acid, described as chlorinated s–triazine triones. There are three primary chemical compositions of chlorinated isocyanurates: (1) trichloroisocyanuric acid (Cl3(NCO)3), (2) sodium dichloroisocyanurate (dihydrate) (NaCl2(NCO)3•2H2O), and (3) sodium dichloroisocyanurate (anhydrous) (NaCl2(NCO)3). Chlorinated isocyanurates are available in powder, granular, and tableted forms. This order covers all chlorinated isocyanurates. Chlorinated isocyanurates are currently classifiable under subheadings 2933.69.6015, 2933.69.6021, 2933.69.6050, 3808.40.50, 3808.50.40 and 3808.94.50.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). The tariff classification 2933.69.6015 covers sodium dichloroisocyanurates (anhydrous and dehydrate forms) and trichloroisocyanuric acid. The tariff classifications 2933.69.6021 and 2933.69.6050 represent basket categories that include chlorinated isocyanurates and other compounds including an unfused triazine ring. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this order is dispositive. Ministerial Errors A ministerial error as defined in section 751(h) of the Act ‘‘includes 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 Secretary considers ministerial.’’ See also 19 CFR 351.224(f). After analyzing Petitioners comments, we have determined, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), that ministerial errors existed in certain calculations for Jiheng and Nanning in the Final Results. Correction of these errors results in a change to Jiheng’s and Nanning’s final antidumping duty margins. The rate for the PRC–wide entity remains unchanged. For a detailed discussion of these ministerial errors, as well as the Department’s analysis, see Memorandum to Wendy J. Frankel, Director, AD/CVD Operations, Office 8, from Jennifer Moats, Senior International Trade Analyst, through Charles Riggle, Program Manager, AD/ CVD Operations, Office 8: Analysis of E:\FR\FM\20OCN1.SGM 20OCN1
