SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to this antidumping duty order is porcelain-onsteel cooking ware from Taiwan that does not have self-contained electric heating elements. All of the foregoing are constructed of steel and are enameled or glazed with vitreous glasses. Kitchenware and teakettles are not subject to the order. The merchandise is currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) number 7323.94.00. HTSUS item numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes. The written description of the scope remains dispositive. Background On December 2, 1986, the Department published, in the Federal Register, the antidumping duty order on POS cooking ware from Taiwan. See Antidumping Duty Order; Porcelain-on-Steel Cooking Ware from Taiwan, 51 FR 43416 (December 2, 1986). In two subsequent sunset reviews, based on affirmative decisions by the Department and the International Trade Commission, the antidumping duty order on POS cooking ware from Taiwan was continued. See Continuation of Antidumping Duty Orders: Porcelain-on-Steel Cooking Ware From China, Mexico, and Taiwan, 65 FR 20136 (April 14, 2000); Porcelainon-Steel Cooking Ware from the People’s Republic of China and Taiwan; Continuation of Antidumping Duty Orders, 70 FR 70581 (November 22, 2005). On October 1, 2010, the Department initiated the current sunset review of the antidumping duty order on POS cooking ware from Taiwan, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation Notice. We received no response to the notice of initiation from the domestic industry by the applicable deadline. See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). As a result, the Department has determined that no domestic interested party intends to participate in the sunset review. See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B). On October 21, 2010, we notified the International Trade Commission, in writing, that we intend to revoke the antidumping duty order on POS cooking ware from Taiwan. See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(2). Revocation Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(3), VerDate Mar<15>2010 02:10 Dec 29, 2010 Jkt 223001 if no domestic interested party files a notice of intent to participate in the sunset review, the Department shall, within 90 days after the initiation of the review, revoke the order. Because no domestic interested party filed a timely notice of intent to participate in this sunset review, the Department finds that no domestic interested party is participating in this sunset review. Therefore, we are revoking the antidumping duty order on POS cooking ware from Taiwan. Effective Date of Revocation The effective date of revocation is November 22, 2010, the fifth anniversary of the date of publication in the Federal Register of the most recent notice of continuation of the antidumping duty order. See 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i). Pursuant to sections 751(c)(3)(A) and 751(c)(6)(A)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i), the Department intends to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to terminate the suspension of liquidation of the merchandise subject to this antidumping duty order entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, on or after November 22, 2010. Entries of subject merchandise prior to the effective date of revocation will continue to be subject to suspension of liquidation and antidumping duty deposit requirements. The Department will complete any pending administrative reviews of the order and will conduct administrative reviews of subject merchandise entered prior to the effective date of revocation in response to appropriately filed requests for review. This five-year (sunset) review and notice are issued and published in accordance with sections 751(c) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: December 21, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 1, 2010, the Department published in the Federal Register 
the notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on CWP from the PRC for the period July 1, 2009, 
through June 30, 2010. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, 
Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request 
Administrative Review, 75 FR 38074, 38075 (July 1, 2010). On August 2, 
2010, the Department received a timely request from the Ad Hoc 
Coalition For Fair Pipe Imports and its individual members, Allied Tube 
& Conduit, IPSCO Tubulars, Inc., Sharon Tube Company, Western Tube & 
Conduit Corporation, and Wheatland Tube Company (collectively, 
``Petitioner''), that the Department conduct an administrative review 
of the antidumping duty order on CWP from the PRC, covering 18 
exporters of CWP from the PRC. No other party requested an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on CWP from the 
PRC. On August 31, 2010, the Department published in the Federal 
Register the notice of initiation of the 2009-2010 administrative 
review of CWP from the PRC. See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Initiation 
of Administrative Review, 75 FR 53274, 53276 (August 31, 2010).
    On September 16, 2010, the Department issued a memorandum providing 
an opportunity for interested parties to comment on U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (``CBP'') information to be used by the Department in 
its respondent selection.

[[Page 81969]]

On October 27, 2010, Petitioner filed a letter withdrawing its request 
for review of the 18 exporters for which the Department initiated this 
review.

Period of Review

    The period of review (``POR'') is July 1, 2009, through June 30, 
2010.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is certain welded carbon 
quality steel pipes and tubes, of circular cross-section, and with an 
outside diameter of 0.372 inches (9.45 mm) or more, but not more than 
16 inches (406.4 mm), whether or not stenciled, regardless of wall 
thickness, surface finish (e.g., black, galvanized, or painted), end 
finish (e.g., plain end, beveled end, grooved, threaded, or threaded 
and coupled), or industry specification (e.g., ASTM, proprietary, or 
other), generally known as standard pipe and structural pipe (they may 
also be referred to as circular, structural, or mechanical tubing).
    Specifically, the term ``carbon quality'' includes products in 
which (a) iron predominates, by weight, over each of the other 
contained elements; (b) the carbon content is 2 percent or less, by 
weight; and (c) none of the elements listed below exceeds the quantity, 
by weight, as indicated:
    (i) 1.80 percent of manganese;
    (ii) 2.25 percent of silicon;
    (iii) 1.00 percent of copper;
    (iv) 0.50 percent of aluminum;
    (v) 1.25 percent of chromium;
    (vi) 0.30 percent of cobalt;
    (vii) 0.40 percent of lead;

    (ix) 0.30 percent of tungsten;
    (x) 0.15 percent of molybdenum;
    (xi) 0.10 percent of niobium;
    (xii) 0.41 percent of titanium;
    (xiii) 0.15 percent of vanadium; or
    (xiv) 0.15 percent of zirconium.
    Standard pipe is made primarily to American Society for Testing and 
Materials (``ASTM'') specifications, but can be made to other 
specifications. Standard pipe is made primarily to ASTM specifications 
A-53, A-135, and A-795. Structural pipe is made primarily to ASTM 
specifications A-252 and A-500. Standard and structural pipe may also 
be produced to proprietary specifications rather than to industry 
specifications. This is often the case, for example, with fence tubing. 
Pipe multiple-stenciled to a standard and/or structural specification 
and to any other specification, such as the American Petroleum 
Institute (``API'') API-5L specification, is also covered by the scope 
of the order when it meets the physical description set forth above and 
also has one or more of the following characteristics: is 32 feet in 
length or less; is less than 2.0 inches (50 mm) in outside diameter; 
has a galvanized and/or painted surface finish; or has a threaded and/
or coupled end finish. (The term ``painted'' does not include coatings 
to inhibit rust in transit, such as varnish, but includes coatings such 
as polyester.)
    The scope of the order does not include: (a) Pipe suitable for use 
in boilers, superheaters, heat exchangers, condensers, refining 
furnaces and feedwater heaters, whether or not cold drawn; (b) 
mechanical tubing, whether or not cold-drawn; (c) finished electrical 
conduit; (d) finished scaffolding; (e) tube and pipe hollows for 
redrawing; (f) oil country tubular goods produced to API 
specifications; and (g) line pipe produced to only API specifications.
    The pipe products that are the subject of the order are currently 
classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(``HTSUS'') statistical reporting numbers 7306.30.10.00, 7306.30.50.25, 
7306.30.50.32, 7306.30.50.40, 7306.30.50.55, 7306.30.50.85, 
7306.30.50.90, 7306.50.10.00, 7306.50.50.50, 7306.50.50.70, 
7306.19.10.10, 7306.19.10.50, 7306.19.51.10, and 7306.19.51.50. 
However, the product description, and not HTSUS classification, is 
dispositive of whether merchandise imported into the United States 
falls within the scope of the order.

Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an 
administrative review under this section, in whole or in part, if a 
party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of 
the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested 
review. Because Petitioner withdrew its review request for all 18 
exporters within the 90-day deadline, and no other party requested an 
administrative review of the antidumping order on CWP from the PRC, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1) the Department is rescinding this 
administrative review in full.

Assessment Instructions

    The Department will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries. For exporters for which this review is 
rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the 
cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of 
entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue 
appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after 
publication of this notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a 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 doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to 
comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 
and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
