SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) has determined that it made certain significant ministerial errors in the preliminary determination PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of sales at less than fair value in the antidumping duty investigation of certain seamless carbon and alloy steel standard, line, and pressure pipe (‘‘seamless pipe’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). As a result, we are amending our preliminary determination to correct certain significant ministerial errors with respect to the antidumping duty margins for a mandatory respondent and for exporters eligible for a separate rate. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Magd Zalok, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–4162. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 28, 2010, the Department published its affirmative preliminary determination in this proceeding. See Certain Seamless Carbon and Alloy Steel Standard, Line, and Pressure Pipe From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, Affirmative Preliminary Determination of Critical Circumstances, in Part, and Postponement of Final Determination, 75 FR 22372 (April 28, 2010) (‘‘Preliminary Determination’’). On May 3, 2010, Tianjin Pipe (Group) Corporation and Tianjin Pipe International Economic and Trading Corporation (collectively ‘‘TPCO’’) submitted ministerial error allegations with respect to the margin calculations for TPCO in the Preliminary Determination, alleging certain errors in conversion, arithmetic, and surrogate value calculations. No other interested party submitted ministerial error allegations. After reviewing TPCO’s allegations, we have determined that the Preliminary Determination contains ministerial errors. We agree that the ministerial errors are ‘‘significant’’ as that term is defined in 19 CFR 351.224(g). Therefore, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(e), we have made changes to the Preliminary Determination. Scope of Investigation The merchandise covered by this investigation is certain seamless carbon and alloy steel (other than stainless steel) pipes and redraw hollows, less than or equal to 16 inches (406.4 mm) in outside diameter, regardless of wall– thickness, manufacturing process (e.g., hot–finished or cold–drawn), end finish (e.g., plain end, beveled end, upset end, threaded, or threaded and coupled), or surface finish (e.g., bare, lacquered or coated). Redraw hollows are any unfinished carbon or alloy steel (other E:\FR\FM\28MYN1.SGM 28MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 103 / Friday, May 28, 2010 / Notices than stainless steel) pipe or ‘‘hollow profiles’’ suitable for cold finishing operations, such as cold drawing, to meet the American Society for Testing and Materials (‘‘ASTM’’) or American Petroleum Institute (‘‘API’’) specifications referenced below, or comparable specifications. Specifically included within the scope are seamless carbon and alloy steel (other than stainless steel) standard, line, and pressure pipes produced to the ASTM A–53, ASTM A–106, ASTM A–333, ASTM A–334, ASTM A–335, ASTM A– 589, ASTM A–795, ASTM A–1024, and the API 5L specifications, or comparable specifications, and meeting the physical parameters described above, regardless of application, with the exception of the exclusion discussed below. Specifically excluded from the scope of the investigation are unattached couplings. The merchandise covered by the investigation is currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) under item numbers: 7304.19.1020, 7304.19.1030, 7304.19.1045, 7304.19.1060, 7304.19.5020, 7304.19.5050, 7304.31.6050, 7304.39.0016, 7304.39.0020, 7304.39.0024, 7304.39.0028, 7304.39.0032, 7304.39.0036, 7304.39.0040, 7304.39.0044, 7304.39.0048, 7304.39.0052, 7304.39.0056, 7304.39.0062, 7304.39.0068, 7304.39.0072, 7304.51.5005, 7304.51.5060, 7304.59.6000, 7304.59.8010, 7304.59.8015, 7304.59.8020, 7304.59.8025, 7304.59.8030, 7304.59.8035, 7304.59.8040, 7304.59.8045, 7304.59.8050, 7304.59.8055, 7304.59.8060, 7304.59.8065, and 7304.59.8070. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the merchandise subject to this scope is dispositive. Ministerial–Error Allegations A ministerial error is defined as an error 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 19 CFR 351.224(f). A significant ministerial error is defined as a ministerial error, the correction of which, singly or in combination with other errors, (1) would result in 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) would result in 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). After reviewing the ministerial error allegations submitted by TPCO in its May 3, 2010, submission, the Department agrees that some of the errors alleged by TPCO are ministerial errors within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.224(f), and that these errors are significant pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(e). We are amending the Preliminary Determination to correct these ministerial errors. See the ‘‘Ministerial Error Memorandum, Amended Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Seamless Carbon and Alloy Steel Standard, Line, and Pressure Pipe from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated concurrently with this Federal Register notice, for a discussion of the ministerial error allegations. See also 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.

The ASF is an option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of general-purpose zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new ‘‘usage-driven’’ FTZ sites for operators/ users located within a grantee’s ‘‘service area’’ in the context of the Board’s standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a general-purpose zone project. The application was submitted pursuant to the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a–81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on May 21, 2010. FTZ 3 was approved by the Board on March 10, 1948 (Board Order 12, 13 FR 1459, 3/19/48) and the boundaries were modified on July 31, 1950 (Board Order 25, 15 FR 1653, 9/8/50) and on December 20, 1956 (Board Order 43, 21 FR 10434, 12/28/56). FTZ 3 was relocated on May 5, 1958 (Board Order 46, 23 FR 3277, 5/14/58), an extension of the relocation granted May 5, 1965 (Board Order 66, 30 FR 6596, 5/13/65) and the zone was relocated again on July 13, 1977 (Board Order 121, 42 FR 38942, 8/1/77). FTZ 3 was expanded on November 21, 2000 (Board Order 1129, 65 FR 76217, 12/6/00). The current zone project includes the following sites: Site 1 (5.82 acres)—Pier 19, Pier 23, Pier 50 and Pier 80 port facilities on the Embarcadero, San Francisco; Site 2 (42.50 acres)—San Francisco International Airport jet-fuel storage and distribution system, which consists of the airport hydrant and storage facilities, two adjacent off- VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:43 May 27, 2010 Jkt 220001 airport terminals, a pipeline and two off-site terminals and related pipelines in Brisbane and South San Francisco; Site 3 (55 acres)—Selby Terminal petroleum facilities, 90 San Pablo Avenue, Crockett; and, Site 4 (164 acres)—Martinez Terminal petroleum facilities, 2801 Waterfront Road, Martinez. The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be the City and County of San Francisco and the County of San Mateo, California, as described in the application. If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout the service area based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The proposed service area is within and adjacent to the San Francisco Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing zone project to include existing sites 2, 3 and 4 as ‘‘usage-driven’’ sites. The applicant is also requesting authority to remove Site 1 from the zone project due to changed circumstances. Because the ASF only pertains to establishing or reorganizing a general-purpose zone, the application would have no impact on FTZ 3’s authorized subzones. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Christopher Kemp of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and information presented in the application and case record and to report findings and recommendations to the Board. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is July 27, 2010. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to August 11, 2010. A copy of the application will be available for public inspection at the Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Room 2111, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230–0002, and in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the Board’s Web site, which is accessible via http:// www.trade.gov/ftz.

Certain Seamless Carbon and Alloy Steel Standard, Line, and 
Pressure Pipe 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: May 28, 2010.
SUMMARY: 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 certain seamless carbon and alloy steel standard, 
line, and pressure pipe (``seamless pipe'') from the People's Republic 
of China (``PRC''). As a result, we are amending our preliminary 
determination to correct certain significant ministerial errors with 
respect to the antidumping duty margins for a mandatory respondent and 
for exporters eligible for a separate rate.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Magd Zalok, Import Administration, 
International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th 
Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: 
(202) 482-4162.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 28, 2010, the Department published 
its affirmative preliminary determination in this proceeding. See 
Certain Seamless Carbon and Alloy Steel Standard, Line, and Pressure 
Pipe From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Determination of 
Sales at Less Than Fair Value, Affirmative Preliminary Determination of 
Critical Circumstances, in Part, and Postponement of Final 
Determination, 75 FR 22372 (April 28, 2010) (``Preliminary 
Determination''). On May 3, 2010, Tianjin Pipe (Group) Corporation and 
Tianjin Pipe International Economic and Trading Corporation 
(collectively ``TPCO'') submitted ministerial error allegations with 
respect to the margin calculations for TPCO in the Preliminary 
Determination, alleging certain errors in conversion, arithmetic, and 
surrogate value calculations. No other interested party submitted 
ministerial error allegations. After reviewing TPCO's allegations, we 
have determined that the Preliminary Determination contains ministerial 
errors. We agree that the ministerial errors are ``significant'' as 
that term is defined in 19 CFR 351.224(g). Therefore, pursuant to 19 
CFR 351.224(e), we have made changes to the Preliminary Determination.

Scope of Investigation

    The merchandise covered by this investigation is certain seamless 
carbon and alloy steel (other than stainless steel) pipes and redraw 
hollows, less than or equal to 16 inches (406.4 mm) in outside 
diameter, regardless of wall-thickness, manufacturing process (e.g., 
hot-finished or cold-drawn), end finish (e.g., plain end, beveled end, 
upset end, threaded, or threaded and coupled), or surface finish (e.g., 
bare, lacquered or coated). Redraw hollows are any unfinished carbon or 
alloy steel (other

[[Page 29973]]

than stainless steel) pipe or ``hollow profiles'' suitable for cold 
finishing operations, such as cold drawing, to meet the American 
Society for Testing and Materials (``ASTM'') or American Petroleum 
Institute (``API'') specifications referenced below, or comparable 
specifications. Specifically included within the scope are seamless 
carbon and alloy steel (other than stainless steel) standard, line, and 
pressure pipes produced to the ASTM A-53, ASTM A-106, ASTM A-333, ASTM 
A-334, ASTM A-335, ASTM A-589, ASTM A-795, ASTM A-1024, and the API 5L 
specifications, or comparable specifications, and meeting the physical 
parameters described above, regardless of application, with the 
exception of the exclusion discussed below. Specifically excluded from 
the scope of the investigation are unattached couplings. The 
merchandise covered by the investigation is currently classified in the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') under item 
numbers: 7304.19.1020, 7304.19.1030, 7304.19.1045, 7304.19.1060,

Ministerial-Error Allegations

    A ministerial error is defined as an error 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 19 CFR 351.224(f). A significant ministerial error is 
defined as a ministerial error, the correction of which, singly or in 
combination with other errors, (1) would result in 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) would result in 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).
    After reviewing the ministerial error allegations submitted by TPCO 
in its May 3, 2010, submission, the Department agrees that some of the 
errors alleged by TPCO are ministerial errors within the meaning of 19 
CFR 351.224(f), and that these errors are significant pursuant to 19 
CFR 351.224(e). We are amending the Preliminary Determination to 
correct these ministerial errors. See the ``Ministerial Error 
Memorandum, Amended Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than 
Fair Value: Certain Seamless Carbon and Alloy Steel Standard, Line, and 
Pressure Pipe from the People's Republic of China,'' dated concurrently 
with this Federal Register notice, for a discussion of the ministerial 
error allegations. See also 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 margin applies:
