SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 28, 2004, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), domestic 
interested party Allied Tube and Conduit Corporation requested a review 
of the Borusan Group and Toscelik Profil ve Sac Endustrisi A.S. 
(``Toscelik''), producers of certain welded carbon steel pipe and tube 
(``welded pipe and tube'') from Turkey. On July 1, 2008, the Department 
of Commerce (``the Department'') published a notice of initiation of 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on welded pipe and 
tube from Turkey, for the period May 1, 2007, through April 30, 2008. 
See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Request for Revocations in Part, 73 FR 37409 (July 1, 
2008). On July 8, 2008, Toscelik informed the Department that it had no 
sales, shipments or entries of subject merchandise in or to the United 
States, during the period of review. On October 10, 2008, the 
Department published a notice of intent to rescind the administrative 
review in part. See Welded Carbon Steel Pipe and Tube from Turkey: 
Notice of Intent to Rescind Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, In 
Part, 73 FR 60240 (October 10, 2008) (``Notice of Intent to Rescind''). 
The Department invited comment on the Department's intent to rescind 
the administrative review, with respect to Toscelik, within 30 days of 
the publication of the Notice of Intent to Rescind.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this order include 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, or galvanized, painted), or end 
finish (plain end, beveled end, threaded and coupled). Those pipes and 
tubes are generally known as standard pipe, though they may also be 
called structural or mechanical tubing in certain applications. 
Standard pipes and tubes are intended for the low pressure conveyance 
of water, steam, natural gas, air, and other liquids and gases in 
plumbing and heating systems, air conditioner units, automatic 
sprinkler systems, and other related uses. Standard pipe may also be 
used for light load-bearing and mechanical applications, such as for 
fence tubing, and for protection of electrical wiring, such as conduit 
shells.
    The scope is not limited to standard pipe and fence tubing, or 
those types of mechanical and structural pipe that are used in standard 
pipe applications. All carbon steel pipes and tubes within the physical 
description outlined above are included in the scope of this order, 
except for line pipe, oil country tubular goods, boiler tubing, cold-
drawn or cold-rolled mechanical tubing, pipe and tube hollows for 
redraws, finished scaffolding, and finished rigid conduit.
    Imports of these products are currently classifiable under the 
following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') 
subheadings: 7306.30.10.00, 7306.30.50.25, 7306.30.50.32, 
7306.30.50.40, 7306.30.50.55, 7306.30.50.85, and 7306.30.50.90. 
Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs 
purposes, our written description of the scope of this proceeding is 
dispositive.

Rescission of Administrative Review

    On October 10, 2008, the Department published in the Federal 
Register its intent to rescind the administrative review in part. See 
Notice of Intent to Rescind. In that notice we stated that since our 
examination of the entry data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
for Toscelik confirmed its assertion that it did not have shipments to 
the United States during the POR, we intended to rescind this review 
with respect to Toscelik. Furthermore, we received no comments. 
Consequently, the Department continues to treat Toscelik as a non-
shipper for purposes of this review.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), the Department may rescind an 
administrative review with respect to a particular exporter or producer 
if the Department concludes that during the POR there were no entries, 
exports, or sales of the subject merchandise. Because there is no 
record evidence of entries, exports or sales of the subject merchandise 
by Toscelik, we are rescinding this review in part.
    As a result of the rescission of this administrative review with 
respect to Toscelik, only one respondent, the Borusan Group, remains in 
this review.
    We are issuing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) 
and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930 as amended, and section 
351.213(d)(4) of the Department's regulations.

    Dated: February 9, 2009.

Duty Operations.
