SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background This matter arose from a challenge to the Final Results issued by the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) regarding the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on Silicon Metal from Brazil for the period of review beginning July 1, 1996, through June 30, 1997. See Silicon Metal from Brazil: Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 64 FR 6305 (February 9, 1999) (‘‘Final Results’’). Following publication of the Final Results, the petitioners1 and the respondents Eletrosilex S.A. (‘‘Eletrosilex’’) and Ligas de Aluminio S.A. filed lawsuits with the Court of International Trade (‘‘CIT’’) challenging the Department’s Final Results. Eletrosilex contested the Department’s application of total adverse facts available (‘‘AFA’’) to Eletrosilex, and the Department’s selected AFA rate of 93.20 percent. On July 17, 2000, the CIT issued its decision, remanding the Final Results to the Department to reconsider its determination to apply AFA to Eletrosilex and the rate which the Department selected as AFA. See American Silicon Technologies v. United States, 110 F. Supp. 2d 992, 1004–5 (2000). On January 29, 2001, the Department submitted remand results to the CIT. See ‘‘Silicon Metal From Brazil; Final Results of Redetermination Pursuant to Court Remand, Ct. No. 99– 00149.’’ In the remand results, the Department considered its determination and reached the same conclusions as regards applying AFA to Eletrosilex, and the appropriate rate to select as AFA, as it did in the Final Results. On October 17, 2002, the CIT issued its decision, affirming the Department’s determination to apply AFA to Eletrosilex but remanding to the Department to redetermine an AFA rate. See American Silicon Technologies v. United States, 240 F. Supp. 2d 1306, 1313 (2002). Pursuant to the CIT’s remand instructions, the Department submitted remand results to the CIT on January 22, 2003. See ‘‘Silicon Metal From Brazil; Final Results of 1 The petitioners are American Silicon Technologies, Elkem Metals Company, Globe Metallurgical, Inc. and SKW Metals & Alloys, Inc. VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:33 Apr 20, 2010 Jkt 220001 Redetermination Pursuant to Court Remand’’ (‘‘Second Remand Results’’). The Department selected as AFA for Eletrosilex a margin of 67.93 percent, a margin calculated for another respondent in the administrative review of silicon metal from Brazil for the period July 1, 1994, through June 30, 1995. See Silicon Metal from Brazil, Final Results of Redetermination Pursuant to Court Remand, American Silicon Technologies v. United States, Court No. 97–02–00267, Slip. Op. 99– 34. On June 27, 2003, the CIT sustained the Second Remand Results. See American Silicon Technologies v. United States, 273 F. Supp. 2d 1342 (2003). However, on October 30, 2003, pursuant to a motion by Eletrosilex, the CIT stayed further action pending the results of litigation regarding the administrative review of silicon metal from Brazil for the 94/95 period of review. See American Silicon Technologies v. United States, 27 C.I.T. 1677; 2003 Ct. Intl. Trade LEXIS 147 (2003). On May 13, 2004, the CIT sustained the Department’s remand results regarding the 94/95 period of review. See American Silicon Technologies v. United States, 28 C.I.T. 698; 2004 Ct. Intl. Trade LEXIS 49 (2004). That decision was not appealed. On January 27, 2010, the CIT dissolved the stay of its June 27, 2003 judgment. As there is now a final and conclusive court decision in this case, we are amending our Final Results. 20813 DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE International Trade Administration [A–570–954] Certain Magnesia Carbon Bricks from the People’s Republic of China: Amended Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce.

Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), we have made changes, as described below, to the Preliminary Determination. Period of Investigation The period of investigation (‘‘POI’’) is January 1, 2009, through June 30, 2009. See 19 CFR 351.204(b)(1). Scope of Investigation Imports covered by this investigation consist of certain chemically bonded (resin or pitch), magnesia carbon bricks with a magnesia component of at least 70 percent magnesia (‘‘MgO’’) by weight, regardless of the source of raw materials for the MgO, with carbon levels ranging from trace amounts to 30 percent by weight, regardless of enhancements, (for example, magnesia carbon bricks can be enhanced with coating, grinding, tar impregnation or coking, high temperature heat treatments, anti–slip treatments or metal casing) and regardless of whether or not anti– oxidants are present (for example, anti– oxidants can be added to the mix from trace amounts to 15 percent by weight as various metals, metal alloys, and metal carbides). Certain magnesia carbon bricks that are the subject of this investigation are currently classifiable under subheadings 6902.10.1000, 6902.10.5000, 6815.91.0000, and 6815.99 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). While HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description is dispositive. Significant Ministerial Error Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(e) and (g)(1), the Department is amending the Preliminary Determination to reflect the correction of significant ministerial errors it made in the margin calculations regarding RHI, and Jiahe, a separate rate applicant. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are correcting significant ministerial errors in the Preliminary Determination. A ministerial error is defined as errors in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers ministerial. See section 735(e) of the Act. A significant ministerial error is defined as a ministerial error, the correction of which, singly or in combination with other errors, would result in (1) a change of at least five absolute percentage points in, but not less than 25 percent of, the weighted– average dumping margin calculated in the original (erroneous) preliminary determination, or (2) a difference between a weighted–average dumping margin of zero or de minimis and a weighted–average dumping margin of greater than de minimis or vice versa. See 19 CFR 351.224(g). As a result of this amended preliminary determination, we have revised the antidumping rate for RHI and added Jiahe to the list of exporters that received a separate rate. In addition, we have revised the separate rate based on RHI’s revised dumping margin. See the ‘‘Amended Preliminary Determination’’ section below. Moreover, we have revised the PRC–wide rate based on RHI’s revised dumping margin. Id.; see also Memorandum to the File, through Scot T. Fullerton, Program Manager, Office 9, from Paul Walker, Case Analyst, ‘‘Investigation of Magnesia Carbon Bricks from the People’s Republic of China: Corroboration of the PRC–wide Rate for the Amended Preliminary Determination,’’ dated concurrently with this notice. Ministerial Error Allegations On March 12, 2010, Jiahe, a separate rate applicant, submitted a ministerial error allegation claiming that the Department did not name it in the Preliminary Determination as one of the exporters receiving a separate rate. On March 12, 2010, Mayerton and RHI submitted ministerial error allegations with respect to their preliminary margin calculations, relating to certain conversion errors and movement expenses. On March 18, 2010, the Petitioner submitted rebuttal comments to RHI’s ministerial error allegations. The Department has reviewed its preliminary calculations and agrees that certain errors which the parties alleged are significant ministerial errors within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.224(g). See Memorandum to James Doyle, Office Director, Office 9, through Scot T. Fullerton, Program Manager, Office 9, from Paul Walker, Senior Case Analyst, ‘‘Investigation of Magnesia Carbon Bricks from the People’s Republic of China: Ministerial Error Memorandum,’’ dated concurrently with this notice, for a discussion of the ministerial error allegations.

Certain Magnesia Carbon Bricks from the People's Republic of 
China: Amended Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair 
Value

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

EFFECTIVE DATE: April 21, 2010.
SUMMARY: On March 12, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published the Preliminary Determination of sales at less than fair 
value (``LTFV'') in the antidumping duty investigation of certain 
magnesia carbon bricks (``bricks'') from the People's Republic of China 
(``PRC''). See Certain Magnesia Carbon Bricks from the People's 
Republic of China: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair 
Value and Postponement of Final Determination, 75 FR 11847 (March 12, 
2010) (``Preliminary Determination''). We are amending our Preliminary 
Determination to correct certain ministerial errors with respect to the 
antidumping duty margin calculation for RHI Refractories Liaoning Co., 
Ltd. (``RHI''). The corrections to the RHI margin also affect the 
margin assigned to the companies receiving a separate rate and the PRC-
wide rate. In addition, we have granted a separate rate to Yingkou 
Jiahe Refractories Co., Ltd. (``Jiahe'').

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Paul Walker, AD/CVD Operations, Office 
9, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, 
Washington, DC, 20230; telephone: (202) 482-0413.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: As noted above, on March 12, 2010, the 
Department published in the Federal Register the Preliminary 
Determination that bricks from the PRC are being, or are likely to be, 
sold in the United States at LTFV, as provided in section 733 of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``Act''). See Preliminary 
Determination.
    On March 12, 2010, RHI, Dalian Mayerton Refractories Co., Ltd. and 
Liaoning Mayerton Refractories Co., Ltd. (collectively, ``Mayerton''), 
Jiahe, and Resco Products, Inc. (``Petitioner''), filed timely 
allegations of ministerial errors contained in the Department's 
Preliminary Determination. After reviewing the allegations, we have 
determined that the Preliminary Determination included significant

[[Page 20814]]

ministerial errors. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), we 
have made changes, as described below, to the Preliminary 
Determination.

Period of Investigation

    The period of investigation (``POI'') is January 1, 2009, through 
June 30, 2009. See 19 CFR 351.204(b)(1).

Scope of Investigation

    Imports covered by this investigation consist of certain chemically 
bonded (resin or pitch), magnesia carbon bricks with a magnesia 
component of at least 70 percent magnesia (``MgO'') by weight, 
regardless of the source of raw materials for the MgO, with carbon 
levels ranging from trace amounts to 30 percent by weight, regardless 
of enhancements, (for example, magnesia carbon bricks can be enhanced 
with coating, grinding, tar impregnation or coking, high temperature 
heat treatments, anti-slip treatments or metal casing) and regardless 
of whether or not anti-oxidants are present (for example, anti-oxidants 
can be added to the mix from trace amounts to 15 percent by weight as 
various metals, metal alloys, and metal carbides). Certain magnesia 
carbon bricks that are the subject of this investigation are currently 
classifiable under subheadings 6902.10.1000, 6902.10.5000, 
6815.91.0000, and 6815.99 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (``HTSUS''). While HTSUS subheadings are provided for 
convenience and customs purposes, the written description is 
dispositive.

Significant Ministerial Error

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(e) and (g)(1), the Department is 
amending the Preliminary Determination to reflect the correction of 
significant ministerial errors it made in the margin calculations 
regarding RHI, and Jiahe, a separate rate applicant. In accordance with 
19 CFR 351.224(e), we are correcting significant ministerial errors in 
the Preliminary Determination. A ministerial error is defined as errors 
in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error 
resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any 
other similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers 
ministerial. See section 735(e) of the Act. A significant ministerial 
error is defined as a ministerial error, the correction of which, 
singly or in combination with other errors, would result in (1) a 
change of at least five absolute percentage points in, but not less 
than 25 percent of, the weighted-average dumping margin calculated in 
the original (erroneous) preliminary determination, or (2) a difference 
between a weighted-average dumping margin of zero or de minimis and a 
weighted-average dumping margin of greater than de minimis or vice 
versa. See 19 CFR 351.224(g). As a result of this amended preliminary 
determination, we have revised the antidumping rate for RHI and added 
Jiahe to the list of exporters that received a separate rate. In 
addition, we have revised the separate rate based on RHI's revised 
dumping margin. See the ``Amended Preliminary Determination'' section 
below. Moreover, we have revised the PRC-wide rate based on RHI's 
revised dumping margin. Id.; see also Memorandum to the File, through 
Scot T. Fullerton, Program Manager, Office 9, from Paul Walker, Case 
Analyst, ``Investigation of Magnesia Carbon Bricks from the People's 
Republic of China: Corroboration of the PRC-wide Rate for the Amended 
Preliminary Determination,'' dated concurrently with this notice.

Ministerial Error Allegations

    On March 12, 2010, Jiahe, a separate rate applicant, submitted a 
ministerial error allegation claiming that the Department did not name 
it in the Preliminary Determination as one of the exporters receiving a 
separate rate. On March 12, 2010, Mayerton and RHI submitted 
ministerial error allegations with respect to their preliminary margin 
calculations, relating to certain conversion errors and movement 
expenses. On March 18, 2010, the Petitioner submitted rebuttal comments 
to RHI's ministerial error allegations. The Department has reviewed its 
preliminary calculations and agrees that certain errors which the 
parties alleged are significant ministerial errors within the meaning 
of 19 CFR 351.224(g). See Memorandum to James Doyle, Office Director, 
Office 9, through Scot T. Fullerton, Program Manager, Office 9, from 
Paul Walker, Senior Case Analyst, ``Investigation of Magnesia Carbon 
Bricks from the People's Republic of China: Ministerial Error 
Memorandum,'' dated concurrently with this notice, for a discussion of 
the ministerial error allegations. See Appendix I for a list of the 
ministerial error allegations.
    The collection of bonds or cash deposits and suspension of 
liquidation will be revised accordingly and parties will be notified of 
this determination, in accordance with section 733(d) and (f) of the 
Act.

Amended Preliminary Determination

    As a result of our correction of significant ministerial errors in 
the Preliminary Determination, we have determined that the following 
weighted-average dumping margins apply:
