SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Correction On May 12, 2010, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published in the Federal Register the following notice: Seamless Refined Copper Pipe and Tube From Mexico: Notice of Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of Final Determination, 75 FR 26726 (May 12, 2010) (‘‘Mexico Preliminary Determination’’). Subsequent to the publication of the notice in the Federal Register, we identified an inadvertent error in the Mexico Preliminary Determination. Specifically, the Department made an error by inadvertently modifying the text within the section titled ‘‘Scope of Investigation,’’ which caused certain terms (e.g., seamless, circular, and refined) to be deleted from portions of the scope language that was previously included in the Initiation Notice. See Seamless Refined Copper Pipe and Tube From the People’s Republic of China and Mexico: Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigations, 74 FR 55194, 55199 (October 27, 2009) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). For reference, below is the correct scope language of the instant investigation. Scope of Investigation For the purpose of this investigation, the products covered are all seamless circular refined copper pipes and tubes, including redraw hollows, greater than or equal to 6 inches (152.4 mm) in length and measuring less than 12.130 inches (308.102 mm) (actual) in outside diameter (‘‘OD’’), regardless of wall thickness, bore (e.g., smooth, enhanced with inner grooves or ridges), PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 manufacturing process (e.g., hot finished, cold-drawn, annealed), outer surface (e.g., plain or enhanced with grooves, ridges, fins, or gills), end finish (e.g., plain end, swaged end, flared end, expanded end, crimped end, threaded), coating (e.g., plastic, paint), insulation, attachments (e.g., plain, capped, plugged, with compression or other fitting), or physical configuration (e.g., straight, coiled, bent, wound on spools).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The subject amendment to Permit No. 14241 is requested under the authority of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.), and the regulations governing the taking and importing of marine mammals (50 CFR part 216. Permit No. 14241, issued on July 15, 2009 (74 FR 3668), authorizes the permit holder to conduct research on cetacean behavior, sound production, and responses to sound. The research methods include tagging marine mammals with an advanced digital sound recording tag that records the acoustic stimuli an animal hears and measures vocalization, behavior, and physiological parameters. Research also involves conducting sound playbacks in a carefully controlled manner and measuring animals’ responses. The principal study species are beaked whales, especially Cuvier’s beaked whale (Ziphius cavirostris), and large delphinids such as long-finned pilot whales (Globicephala melas), although other small cetacean species may also be studied. The locations for the field work are the Mediterranean Sea, waters off of the mid-Atlantic United States, and Cape Cod Bay. The permit is valid through July 31, 2014. The permit holder is requesting the permit be amended to: (1) include authorization for collection of a skin and blubber biopsy sample from some animals that are already authorized to be tagged; (2) add new species for existing projects involving tagging, playbacks, and behavioral observations; and (3) modify and clarify tagging and playback protocols and mitigation for when dependent calves are present. The new species for the Mediterranean Seabased project are Blainville’s beaked whale (Mesoplodon densirostris), Cuvier’s beaked whale, short-finned pilot whale (Globicephala macrorhynchus), long-finned pilot whale, Risso’s dolphin (Grampus griseus), and false killer whale (Pseudorca crassidens). The new species for the project based off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina are True’s beaked whale (M. mirus), Gervais’ beaked whale (M. europaeus), PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 29991 Blainville’s beaked whale, bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus), Risso’s dolphin, short-beaked common dolphin (Delphinus delphis), and Cuvier’s beaked whale. The amendment would be valid through the current expiration date of the permit. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an initial determination has been made that the activity proposed is categorically excluded from the requirement to prepare an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Correction

    On May 12, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published in the Federal Register the following notice: Seamless 
Refined Copper Pipe and Tube From Mexico: Notice of Preliminary 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of 
Final Determination, 75 FR 26726 (May 12, 2010) (``Mexico Preliminary 
Determination''). Subsequent to the publication of the notice in the 
Federal Register, we identified an inadvertent error in the Mexico 
Preliminary Determination. Specifically, the Department made an error 
by inadvertently modifying the text within the section titled ``Scope 
of Investigation,'' which caused certain terms (e.g., seamless, 
circular, and refined) to be deleted from portions of the scope 
language that was previously included in the Initiation Notice. See 
Seamless Refined Copper Pipe and Tube From the People's Republic of 
China and Mexico: Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigations, 74 FR 
55194, 55199 (October 27, 2009) (``Initiation Notice''). For reference, 
below is the correct scope language of the instant investigation.

Scope of Investigation

    For the purpose of this investigation, the products covered are all 
seamless circular refined copper pipes and tubes, including redraw 
hollows, greater than or equal to 6 inches (152.4 mm) in length and 
measuring less than 12.130 inches (308.102 mm) (actual) in outside 
diameter (``OD''), regardless of wall thickness, bore (e.g., smooth, 
enhanced with inner grooves or ridges), manufacturing process (e.g., 
hot finished, cold-drawn, annealed), outer surface (e.g., plain or 
enhanced with grooves, ridges, fins, or gills), end finish (e.g., plain 
end, swaged end, flared end, expanded end, crimped end, threaded), 
coating (e.g., plastic, paint), insulation, attachments (e.g., plain, 
capped, plugged, with compression or other fitting), or physical 
configuration (e.g., straight, coiled, bent, wound on spools).
    The scope of this investigation covers, but is not limited to, 
seamless refined copper pipe and tube produced or comparable to the 
American Society for Testing and Materials (``ASTM'') ASTM-B42, ASTM-
B68, ASTM-B75, ASTM-B88, ASTM-B88M, ASTM-B188, ASTM-B251, ASTM-B251M, 
ASTM-B280, ASTM-B302, ASTM-B306, ASTM-359, ASTM-B743, ASTM-B819, and 
ASTM-B903 specifications and meeting the physical parameters described 
therein. Also included within the scope of this investigation are all 
sets of covered products, including ``line sets'' of seamless refined 
copper tubes (with or without fittings or insulation) suitable for 
connecting an outdoor air conditioner or heat pump to an indoor 
evaporator unit. The phrase ``all sets of covered products'' denotes 
any combination of items put up for sale that is comprised of 
merchandise subject to the scope.
    ``Refined copper'' is defined as: (1) Metal containing at least 
99.85 percent by weight of copper; or (2) metal containing at least 
97.5 percent by weight of copper, provided that the content by weight 
of any other element does not exceed the following limits:

    Excluded from the scope of this investigation are all seamless 
circular hollows of refined copper less than 12 inches in length whose 
OD (actual) exceeds its length.
    The products subject to this investigation are currently 
classifiable under subheadings 7411.10.1030 and 7411.10.1090 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS''). Products 
subject to this

investigation may also enter under HTSUS subheadings 7407.10.1500, 
7419.99.5050, 8415.90.8065, and 8415.90.8085. Although the HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written description of the scope of this investigation is dispositive.

Conclusion

    The Department clarifies that the ``Scope of Investigation'' 
section of the Mexico Preliminary Determination was unintentionally 
modified and no changes to the scope of this investigation have 
occurred pursuant to the Mexico Preliminary Determination. Therefore, 
the scope language stated in the Initiation Notice reflects the scope 
of this investigation. This notice is issued and published in 
accordance with sections 733(f) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended.
