Download as PDF jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 96 / Wednesday, May 19, 2010 / Notices Web, EFS-Web Contingency Option will provide an Electronic Acknowledgement Receipt that establishes the date of receipt by the USPTO of an application or document submitted via EFS-Web Contingency Option. Applicant will not be required to, and should not, resubmit the application or document when the primary portal to EFS-Web is once again available. Any resubmission of an application will result in filing a duplicate application and, if applicant pays the filing fees again when submitting the duplicate application, no refund will be provided. Applications filed via EFS-Web Contingency Option are protected with the same level of security as EFS-Web for unregistered e-filers by using Transport Layer Security (TLS) to encrypt transmission over the Internet. Registered e-filers who have uploaded documents to a Saved Submission package in EFS-Web will not be able to access those Saved Submission documents in EFS-Web Contingency Option. Applicants can submit on-line fee payments by selecting fees on the fee calculation screen and completing their payment at time of submission (i.e., chose the ‘‘Yes! I want to pay now’’ button rather than ‘‘No—I will pay later’’ button). When the primary portal to EFS-Web is unavailable during an unscheduled outage, applicants may also file new applications, national stage submissions under 35 U.S.C. 371 submitted with the basic national fee necessary to enter the national stage, and reexamination requests, by hand-delivery to the USPTO, or ‘‘Express Mail’’ from the United States Postal Service (USPS) in accordance with 37 CFR 1.10, to establish the filing date or national stage entry date. See Legal Framework for Electronic Filing System—Web (EFSWeb), 74 FR 55200, 55204 (October 27, 2009) (notice), and Revised Legal Framework for EFS-Web (http:// www.uspto.gov/patents/process/file/efs/ guidance/New_legal_framework.jsp) (Section C3). New applications, national stage submissions under 35 U.S.C. 371 submitted with the basic national fee necessary to enter the national stage, and reexamination requests cannot be submitted by facsimile transmission, and certificate of mailing procedures under 37 CFR 1.8 do not apply to these items. The EFS-Web Contingency Option does not permit follow-on fee payments and follow-on documents other than those listed above. Applicants may file the documents or fee payments by: (1) Facsimile transmission, (2) first class mail with a certificate of mailing in VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:07 May 18, 2010 Jkt 220001 accordance with 37 CFR 1.8, (3) handdelivery to the USPTO, or (4) ‘‘Express Mail’’ from USPS in accordance with 37 CFR 1.10. Documents that are required to establish the filing date of an application (e.g., a missing drawing figure or page of the specification) cannot be submitted by facsimile transmission, and certificate of mailing procedures under 37 CFR 1.8 do not apply to these documents. II. Improperly Filed Follow-on Documents As previously stated, EFS-Web Contingency Option and EFS-Web for unregistered e-filers permit users to sign on as unregistered EFS-Web users to file new applications, national stage submissions under 35 U.S.C. 371 submitted with the basic national fee necessary to enter the national stage, requests for reexamination and certain petitions. Unfortunately, EFS-Web Contingency and EFS-Web for unregistered e-filers have limited functionality, which do not permit users to file other follow-on documents and follow-on fee payments after the initial submission of the application or reexamination request (e.g., amendments and replies to Office actions). Accordingly, it will be improper for users to file follow-on documents as new applications. The USPTO will continue to provide answers to frequently asked questions, and other helpful information on the USPTO Web site. Users are encouraged to check the USPTO Web site for more information and contact the Patent Electronic Business Center for questions related to the usage of USPTO electronic systems. III. Additional Information Regarding National Stage Submissions The basic national fee is required in order for an international application to enter the national stage under 35 U.S.C. 371. See 37 CFR 1.495. Users are permitted to submit the basic national fee with the national stage submission under 35 U.S.C. 371 via EFS-Web and EFS-Web Contingency Option using online payment screens that interface with the Revenue Accounting and Management (RAM) system. If the RAM system is unavailable, neither EFS-Web nor EFS-Web Contingency Option will permit users to make payment using the interactive payment screens. Applicant may pay the necessary national stage entry fees by including a written authorization to charge the desired fees together with the national stage submission under 35 U.S.C. 371, or sending the payment via ‘‘Express Mail’’ from the USPS in accordance with 37 PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27987 CFR 1.10 on the same date that the national stage submission is electronically filed. For any national stage submissions under 35 U.S.C. 371 filed via the EFSWeb or EFS-Web Contingency Option, the system automatically checks the Patent Application Locating and Monitoring (PALM) system to verify that no previous national stage submission has been made for the particular PCT international application referenced in the initial national stage submission. If the PALM system is unavailable, neither EFS-Web nor EFS-Web Contingency Option can complete the PALM verification, and thus EFS-Web and EFS-Web Contingency Option will not permit any national stage submissions under 35 U.S.C. 371 to be filed. Therefore, if PALM is unavailable, applicants may use hand-delivery or ‘‘Express Mail’’ from the USPS in accordance with 37 CFR 1.10 to timely submit documents and fees for national stage entry. However, applicants may not file national stage submissions under 35 U.S.C. 371 and the basic national fee necessary to enter the national stage via facsimile transmission. See 37 CFR 1.6(d)(3) and 1.8(a)(2)(i)(F). Dated: May 12, 2010. David J. Kappos, Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

SUMMARY: On January 7, 2010, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain welded stainless steel pipes (WSSP) from the Republic of Korea (Korea). This review covers one producer/exporter of the subject merchandise to the United States, SeAH Steel Corporation (SeAH). The period of review (POR) is December 1, 2007, through November 30, 2008. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made certain changes E:\FR\FM\19MYN1.SGM 19MYN1 27988 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 96 / Wednesday, May 19, 2010 / Notices in the margin calculations. Therefore, the final results differ from the preliminary results. The final weightedaverage dumping margin for the reviewed firm is listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of Review.’’ DATES: Effective Date: May 19, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES Background On January 7, 2010, the Department published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on WSSP from Korea. See Certain Welded Stainless Steel Pipes from the Republic of Korea: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 973 (Jan. 7, 2010) (Preliminary Results). We invited parties to comment on our preliminary results. In February 2010, we received a case brief from SeAH. We did not receive a case brief or rebuttal brief from the petitioners.1 The Department has conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the antidumping duty order is welded austenitic stainless steel pipe that meets the standards and specifications set forth by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) for the welded form of chromium-nickel pipe designated ASTM A–312. The merchandise covered by the scope of the order also includes austenitic welded stainless steel pipes made according to the standards of other nations which are comparable to ASTM A–312. WSSP is produced by forming stainless steel flat-rolled products into a tubular configuration and welding along the seam. WSSP is a commodity product generally used as a conduit to transmit liquids or gases. Major applications for steel pipe include, but are not limited to, digester lines, blow lines, pharmaceutical lines, petrochemical stock lines, brewery process and transport lines, general food processing lines, automotive paint lines, and paper 1 The petitioners are Bristol Metals, LLC, Felker Brothers Corporation, Marcegaglia USA, Inc., and Outokumpu Stainless Pipe, Inc. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:07 May 18, 2010 Jkt 220001 process machines. Imports of WSSP are currently classifiable under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 7306.40.5005, 7306.40.5015, 7306.40.5040, 7306.40.5065, and 7306.40.5085. Although these subheadings include both pipes and tubes, the scope of the antidumping duty order is limited to welded austenitic stainless steel pipes. The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes. However, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Period of Review The POR is December 1, 2007, through November 30, 2008. Cost of Production As discussed in the preliminary results, we conducted an investigation to determine whether SeAH made home market sales of the foreign like product during the POR at prices below their costs of production (COP) within the meaning of section 773(b) of the Act. See Preliminary Results, 75 FR at 976. For these final results, we performed the cost test following the same methodology as in the Preliminary Results. We found that 20 percent or more of SeAH’s sales of a given product during the reporting period were at prices less than the weighted-average COP for this period. Thus, we determined that these below-cost sales were made in ‘‘substantial quantities’’ within an extended period of time and at prices which did not permit the recovery of all costs within a reasonable period of time in the normal course of trade. See sections 773(b)(1)–(2) of the Act. Therefore, for purposes of these final results, we found that SeAH made below-cost sales not in the ordinary course of trade. Consequently, we disregarded these sales for SeAH and used the remaining sales as the basis for determining normal value pursuant to section 773(b)(1) of the Act. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case brief by SeAH are listed in the Appendix to this notice and addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum (the Decision Memo), which is adopted by this notice. Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues raised in this review and the corresponding recommendations in this public memorandum, which is on file in the Central Records Unit, room 1117, of the main Department building.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made certain changes to the margin calculations. These changes are discussed in the relevant sections of the Decision Memo. Final Results of Review We determine that the following weighted-average margin percentage exists for the period December 1, 2007 through November 30, 2008: Manufacturer/Producer/Exporter SeAH Steel Corporation ........... Percent margin 2.92 Assessment The Department shall determine, and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates for SeAH based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of those sales. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent). The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by SeAH for which SeAH did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate established in the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. Cash Deposit Requirements Further, the following deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of WSSP from Korea entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this E:\FR\FM\19MYN1.SGM 19MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 96 / Wednesday, May 19, 2010 / Notices administrative review, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the reviewed company will be the rate shown above, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), the cash deposit will be zero; (2) for previously investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period of review; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, or the LTFV investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 7.00 percent, the all-others rate made effective by the LTFV investigation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On January 7, 2010, the Department published in the Federal 
Register the preliminary results of administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on WSSP from Korea. See Certain Welded Stainless 
Steel Pipes from the Republic of Korea: Preliminary Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 973 (Jan. 7, 2010) 
(Preliminary Results).
    We invited parties to comment on our preliminary results. In 
February 2010, we received a case brief from SeAH. We did not receive a 
case brief or rebuttal brief from the petitioners.\1\ The Department 
has conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751 
of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The petitioners are Bristol Metals, LLC, Felker Brothers 
Corporation, Marcegaglia USA, Inc., and Outokumpu Stainless Pipe, 
Inc.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the antidumping duty order is welded 
austenitic stainless steel pipe that meets the standards and 
specifications set forth by the American Society for Testing and 
Materials (ASTM) for the welded form of chromium-nickel pipe designated 
ASTM A-312. The merchandise covered by the scope of the order also 
includes austenitic welded stainless steel pipes made according to the 
standards of other nations which are comparable to ASTM A-312.
    WSSP is produced by forming stainless steel flat-rolled products 
into a tubular configuration and welding along the seam. WSSP is a 
commodity product generally used as a conduit to transmit liquids or 
gases. Major applications for steel pipe include, but are not limited 
to, digester lines, blow lines, pharmaceutical lines, petrochemical 
stock lines, brewery process and transport lines, general food 
processing lines, automotive paint lines, and paper process machines. 
Imports of WSSP are currently classifiable under the following 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 
7306.40.5005, 7306.40.5015, 7306.40.5040, 7306.40.5065, and 
7306.40.5085. Although these subheadings include both pipes and tubes, 
the scope of the antidumping duty order is limited to welded austenitic 
stainless steel pipes. The HTSUS subheadings are provided for 
convenience and customs purposes. However, the written description of 
the scope of the order is dispositive.

Period of Review

    The POR is December 1, 2007, through November 30, 2008.

Cost of Production

    As discussed in the preliminary results, we conducted an 
investigation to determine whether SeAH made home market sales of the 
foreign like product during the POR at prices below their costs of 
production (COP) within the meaning of section 773(b) of the Act. See 
Preliminary Results, 75 FR at 976. For these final results, we 
performed the cost test following the same methodology as in the 
Preliminary Results.
    We found that 20 percent or more of SeAH's sales of a given product 
during the reporting period were at prices less than the weighted-
average COP for this period. Thus, we determined that these below-cost 
sales were made in ``substantial quantities'' within an extended period 
of time and at prices which did not permit the recovery of all costs 
within a reasonable period of time in the normal course of trade. See 
sections 773(b)(1)-(2) of the Act.
    Therefore, for purposes of these final results, we found that SeAH 
made below-cost sales not in the ordinary course of trade. 
Consequently, we disregarded these sales for SeAH and used the 
remaining sales as the basis for determining normal value pursuant to 
section 773(b)(1) of the Act.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case brief by SeAH are listed in the 
Appendix to this notice and addressed in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum (the Decision Memo), which is adopted by this notice. 
Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues raised in this 
review and the corresponding recommendations in this public memorandum, 
which is on file in the Central Records Unit, room 1117, of the main 
Department building.
    In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memo can be 
accessed directly on the Web at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn[sol]. The 
paper copy and electronic version of the Decision Memo are identical in 
content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made 
certain changes to the margin calculations. These changes are discussed 
in the relevant sections of the Decision Memo.

Final Results of Review

    We determine that the following weighted-average margin percentage 
exists for the period December 1, 2007 through November 30, 2008:

Assessment

    The Department shall determine, and the U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 
15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we calculated importer-specific 
ad valorem duty assessment rates for SeAH based on the ratio of the 
total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to 
the total entered value of those sales. Pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to 
antidumping duties any entries for which the assessment rate is de 
minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent).
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). This 
clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the 
POR produced by SeAH for which SeAH did not know its merchandise was 
destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP 
to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate established in 
the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation if there is no rate for 
the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    Further, the following deposit requirements will be effective for 
all shipments of WSSP from Korea entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results 
of this

[[Page 27989]]

administrative review, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the 
Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the reviewed company will be the 
rate shown above, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent, de 
minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), the cash deposit 
will be zero; (2) for previously investigated companies not listed 
above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific 
rate published for the most recent period of review; (3) if the 
exporter is not a firm covered in this review, or the LTFV 
investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of 
the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 7.00 percent, the all-
others rate made effective by the LTFV investigation. See Antidumping 
Duty Order and Clarification of Final Determination: Certain Welded 
Stainless Steel Pipes From Korea, 57 FR 62301 (Dec. 30, 1992), as 
amended in Notice of Amended Final Determination and Antidumping Duty 
Order: Certain Welded Stainless Steel Pipe From the Republic of Korea, 
60 FR 10064, 10065 (Feb. 23, 1995). These deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility, under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2), to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
