SUMMARY: In response to requests from interested parties, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on circular welded non–alloy steel pipe (‘‘CWP’’) from the Republic of Korea (‘‘Korea’’). The period of review (‘‘POR’’) is November 1, 2007, through October 31, 2008. This review covers multiple exporters/producers, one of which is being individually reviewed as a mandatory respondent. We preliminarily determine the mandatory respondent made sales of the subject merchandise at prices below normal value (‘‘NV’’). We have assigned the remaining respondents the margin calculated for the mandatory respondent. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective Date: December 8, 2009.

On November 28, 2008, Nexteel Co., Ltd. (‘‘Nexteel’’) and A–JU-Besteel Co., Ltd. (‘‘A–JU-Besteel’’) timely requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on CWP from Korea for the period November 1, 2007, through October 31, 2008. On December 1, 2008, Wheatland Tube Company (‘‘Wheatland’’) and United States Steel Corporation (‘‘U.S. Steel’’), manufacturers of the domestic like product, also timely requested a review. Wheatland requested the Department conduct an administrative review of the following producers and/ or exporters of the subject merchandise: SeAH Steel Corporation (‘‘SeAH’’); Hyundai HYSCO; Husteel Co., Ltd. (‘‘Husteel’’); Daewoo International Corporation (‘‘Daewoo’’); Miju Steel Making Co. (‘‘Miju’’); Samsun Steel Co., Ltd. (‘‘Samsun’’); Kukje Steel Co., Ltd.

(‘‘Huanbohai’’); Huludao Steel Pipe Industrial Co., Ltd.; Huludao City Steel Pipe; Benxi Northern Steel Pipes Co. (‘‘Benxi Northern’’); and Tianjin Shuangjie Steel Pipe Co. (‘‘Shuangjie’’). U.S. Steel requested the Department conduct an administrative review of the following producers of subject merchandise: Husteel; Hyundai HYSCO; Nexteel; Samsun; and SeAH. On December 24, 2008, the Department published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on CWP from Korea. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 79055 (December 24, 2008) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). On January 13, 2009, Wheatland and U.S. Steel withdrew their requests for a review of Husteel. On March 23, 2009, Wheatland withdrew its request for the following companies: Daewoo; Miju; Samsun; Kukje; MSteel Co., Ltd.; Histeel Co., Ltd.; Hyundai Corporation; Dong– A; Union Pipe; Huanbohai; Huludao Steel Pipe Industrial Co., Ltd.; Huludao City Steel Pipe; Benxi Northern; and Shuangjie.

See Circular Welded Non– Alloy Steel Pipe from the Republic of Korea: Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 17158 (April 14, 2009). In our initiation notice, we indicated that we would select mandatory respondents for review based upon CBP data, and that we would limit the respondents selected for individual review in accordance with section 777A(c)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). See Initiation Notice, 73 FR at 79055. In January 2009, we received comments on the issue of respondent selection from Nexteel and Wheatland. On February 11, 2009, after considering the resources available to the Department, we determined that it was not practicable to examine all producers/exporters of subject merchandise for which a review was requested. As a result, we selected the two largest producers/exporters of CWP from Korea during the POR for individual review in this segment of this proceeding, pursuant to section 777A(c)(2)(B) of the Act. These mandatory respondents were SeAH and Kumkang. See Memorandum from Joseph Shuler, International Trade Compliance Analyst, to John M. Andersen, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, ‘‘Selection of Respondents for the Antidumping Duty Review of Circular Welded Non–Alloy Steel Pipe from the Republic of Korea,’’ dated February 11, 2009. On January 23, 2009, Wheatland submitted a request for a duty absorption determination for a number of producers or exporters subject to this review, including SeAH. The Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit found that the Department lacks authority to conduct two–and four–year duty absorption inquiries for transitional orders (orders in effect before January 1, 1995). See FAG Italia S.p.A. v. United States, 291 F.3d 806, 819 (Fed. Cir. 2002). Since the order for this case is from 1992, we have not conducted a duty absorption inquiry in this proceeding. On February 12, 2009, we issued the antidumping questionnaire to SeAH and Kumkang. We received section A responses from SeAH and Kumkang on March 5, 2009, and March 20, 2009, respectively. We received the sections B, C and D response from SeAH on April 7, 2009, and we received the E:\FR\FM\08DEN1.SGM 08DEN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On October 13, 2009, the Department of Commerce (the 
``Department'') initiated a countervailing duty investigation of 
certain coated paper suitable for high-quality print graphics using 
sheet-fed presses (``certain coated paper'') from the People's Republic 
of China (``PRC''). See Certain Coated Paper Suitable for High-Quality 
Print Graphics Using Sheet-Fed Presses from the People's Republic of 
China: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 74 FR 53703 
(October 20, 2009). Currently, the preliminary determination is due no 
later than December 17, 2009.

Postponement of Due Date for Preliminary Determination

    On November 19, 2009, the Department received a request from 
Appleton Coated LLC, NewPage Corporation, S.D. Warren Company d/b/a 
Sappi Fine Paper North America, and the United Steel, Paper and 
Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service 
Workers International Union (collectively, ``Petitioners'') to postpone 
the preliminary determination of the countervailing duty investigation 
of certain coated paper from the PRC. Under section 703(c)(1)(A) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), the Department may extend 
the period for reaching a preliminary determination in a countervailing 
duty investigation until no later than the 130th day after the date on 
which the administering authority initiates an investigation if the 
petitioner makes a timely request. In accordance with 19 CFR 
351.205(e), Petitioners' request for postponement of the preliminary 
determination was made 25 days or more before the scheduled date of the 
preliminary determination. Thus, we are fully extending the due date 
for the preliminary determination to no later than 130 days after the 
day on which the investigation was initiated (i.e., February 20, 2010). 
However, February 20, 2010, falls on a Saturday and it is the 
Department's long-standing practice to issue a determination the next 
business day when the statutory deadline falls on a weekend, federal 
holiday, or any other day when the Department is closed. See Notice of 
Clarification: Application of ``Next Business Day'' Rule for 
Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 
1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). Accordingly, the deadline 
for completion of the preliminary determination is now no later than 
February 22, 2010.
