The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``Commission'' or ``CFTC'') is amending certain of its regulations in connection with electronic filing of financial reports and related notices.

Document Number: E9-31025
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-12-30
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce (``Department'') has determined that it made certain significant ministerial errors in the preliminary determination of sales at less than fair value in the antidumping duty investigation of oil country tubular goods (``OCTG'') from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') \1\ as described below in the ``Supplementary Information'' section of this notice. The Department has corrected those errors and has re-calculated the antidumping duty margins for a mandatory respondent and for exporters eligible for a separate rate as shown below in the ``Amended Preliminary Determination'' section of this notice. As a result of a document conversion error, the version of this notice released to interested parties on December 4, 2009, omitted the name of an exporter/producer combination that is eligible for a separate rate \2\ and inadvertently misidentified the name of a non-selected respondent, Qiqihaer Haoying Iron and Steel Co., Ltd. of Northeast Special Steel Group (``Qiqihaer''), a separate-rate applicant. This amended notice corrects this error. Because these errors were discovered prior to publication in the Federal Register, this amended preliminary determination is being published in place of the original version released on December 4, 2009.

Under 1996 amendments to the FCRA, the Federal Trade Commission is required to increase the $8.00 amount referred to in paragraph (1)(A)(i) of Section 612(f) on January 1 of each year, based proportionally on changes in the Consumer Price Index (``CPI''), with fractional changes rounded to the nearest fifty cents. The CPI increased 33.98 percent between September 1997, the date the FCRA amendments took effect, and September 2009. This increase in the CPI, and the requirement that any increase be rounded to the nearest fifty cents, results in a maximum allowable charge of $10.50 effective January 1, 2010.
