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 VerDate Nov<24>2008 19:45 Feb 13, 2009 Jkt 217001 Scope of the Order The products covered by this order include circular welded non–alloy steel pipes and tubes, of circular crosssection, 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 PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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.

Therefore, the final results do not differ from the preliminary results. The final net subsidy rate for Hynix Semiconductor Inc. is listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of Review.’’ EFFECTIVE DATE: February 17, 2009. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David Neubacher or Shane Subler, AD/ CVD Operations, Office 1, Import Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–5823 or (202) 482– 0189, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The following events have occurred since the publication of the preliminary results of this review. See Dynamic Random Access Memory Semiconductors from the Republic of Korea: Preliminary Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 47131 (August 13, 2008) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). On September 23, 2008, we received a case brief from the petitioner, Micron Technology, Inc. (‘‘Micron’’), and we received a rebuttal brief from Hynix Semiconductor Inc. (‘‘Hynix’’) on September 29, 2008. On November 24, 2008, we issued a supplemental questionnaire to Hynix and received a response on December 2, 2008. Following Hynix’s December 2, 2008, supplemental questionnaire response, we received a supplemental case brief from Micron on December 17, 2008 and a supplemental rebuttal brief from Hynix on December 22, 2008. On November 28, 2008, we extended the time limit for the final results of this administrative review by 60 days (to February 9, 2008), pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). See Dynamic Random Access Memory Semiconductors From the Republic of Korea: Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of the Countervailing Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 72449 (November 28, 2008). Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are dynamic random access memory semiconductors (‘‘DRAMS’’) from the Republic of Korea (‘‘ROK’’), whether assembled or unassembled. Assembled DRAMS include all package types. Unassembled DRAMS include processed wafers, uncut die, and cut die. Processed wafers fabricated in the PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 7395 ROK, but assembled into finished semiconductors outside the ROK are also included in the scope. Processed wafers fabricated outside the ROK and assembled into finished semiconductors in the ROK are not included in the scope. The scope of the order additionally includes memory modules containing DRAMS from the ROK. A memory module is a collection of DRAMS, the sole function of which is memory. Memory modules include single in–line processing modules, single in–line memory modules, dual in–line memory modules, small outline dual in–line memory modules, Rambus in–line memory modules, and memory cards or other collections of DRAMS, whether unmounted or mounted on a circuit board. Modules that contain other parts that are needed to support the function of memory are covered. Only those modules that contain additional items which alter the function of the module to something other than memory, such as video graphics adapter boards and cards, are not included in the scope. The scope also covers future DRAMS module types. The scope of the order additionally includes, but is not limited to, video random access memory and synchronous graphics random access memory, as well as various types of DRAMS, including fast page–mode, extended data–out, burst extended data– out, synchronous dynamic RAM, Rambus DRAM, and Double Data Rate DRAM. The scope also includes any future density, packaging, or assembling of DRAMS. Also included in the scope of this order are removable memory modules placed on motherboards, with or without a central processing unit, unless the importer of the motherboards certifies with U.S. customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) that neither it, nor a party related to it or under contract to it, will remove the modules from the motherboards after importation. The scope of the order does not include DRAMS or memory modules that are re– imported for repair or replacement. The DRAMS subject to the order are currently classifiable under subheadings 8542.21.8005, 8542.21.8020 through 8542.21.8030, and 8542.32.0001 through 8542.32.0023 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). The memory modules containing DRAMS from the ROK, described above, are currently classifiable under subheadings 8473.30.1040, 8473.30.1080, 8473.30.1140, and 8473.30.1180 of the HTSUS.
