SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Pursuant to section 736 of the Act, the Department published in the Federal Register the antidumping duty orders on certain circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from India, Thailand, and Turkey. See Antidumping Duty Order; Certain Welded Carbon Steel Standard Pipes and Tubes from India, 51 FR 17384 (May 12, 1986); Antidumping Duty Order; Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes From Thailand, 51 FR 8341 (March 11, 1986); and Antidumping Duty Order; Welded Carbon Steel Standard Pipe and Tube Products From Turkey, 51 FR 17784 (May 15, 1986). On July 1, 2011, the Department published a notice of initiation of the third sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on certain circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from India, Thailand, and Turkey, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 76 FR 38613 (July 1, 2011). For each of these sunset reviews, the Department received notice of intent to participate from Allied Tube and Conduit, JMC Steel Group, Leavitt Tube, Northwest Pipe Company, TMK IPSCO Tubulars, U.S. Steel Corporation, and Western Tube and Conduit, (collectively, ‘‘the domestic interested parties’’) within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). In addition, Wheatland Tube Company (‘‘Wheatland’’) filed an entry of appearance and also requested recognition as a domestic interested party. The domestic interested parties claim interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as U.S. producers of the subject merchandise. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 66893 On July 4, 2011, the Government of Turkey filed an entry of appearance as an interested party for the Turkish proceeding. On July 5, 2011, the Government of Turkey requested the Department to extend the 30-day deadline for filing its substantive response as specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). On July 7, 2011, Saha Thai Steel Pipe (Public) Company, Ltd. (‘‘Saha Thai’’), a Thai producer and exporter, entered an appearance as a respondent interested party. On August 10, 2011, the Department extended the deadline to file a substantive response until August 10, 2011. On July 29, August 1, and 10, 2011, we received complete substantive responses from the domestic interested parties within the extended deadline established by the Department. Wheatland Tube Company did not file a substantive response. Saha Thai did not file a substantive response. On August 9, 2011, the Government of Turkey submitted a substantive response within the extended deadline.1 On August 17, 2011, we received rebuttal comments to the Government of Turkey’s substantive response from U.S. Steel Corporation. We received no other substantive responses from respondent interested parties on the three antidumping duty orders currently under review and, therefore, did not have adequate respondent interested party participation pursuant to 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(A). Based on these circumstances, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department has conducted expedited sunset reviews of these antidumping duty orders.

Those pipes and tubes are generally known as standard pipe, though they may also be called structural or mechanical tubing in certain applications. Standard pipes and tubes are intended for the low pressure conveyance of water, steam, natural gas, air, and other liquids and gases in plumbing and heating systems, air conditioner units, automatic sprinkler systems, and other related uses. Standard pipe may also be used for light load-bearing and mechanical applications, such as for fence tubing, and for protection of electrical wiring, such as conduit shells. The scope is not limited to standard pipe and fence tubing, or those types of mechanical and structural pipe that are used in standard pipe applications. All carbon steel pipes and tubes within the physical description outlined above are included in the scope of this order, except for line pipe, oil country tubular goods, boiler tubing, cold-drawn or cold-rolled mechanical tubing, pipe and tube hollows for redraws, finished scaffolding, and finished rigid conduit. 3 Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes From Thailand: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 64696 (October 20, 2010). 4 There was one scope ruling in which British Standard light pipe 387/67, Class A–1 was found to be within the scope of the order per remand.

Certain Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes From India, 
Thailand, and Turkey; Final Results of Expedited Five-Year (``Sunset'') 
Reviews of Antidumping Duty Orders

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

SUMMARY: On July 1, 2011, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated the third sunset reviews of the antidumping 
duty orders on certain circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes 
from India, Thailand, and Turkey, pursuant to section 751(c) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). On the basis of a notice 
of intent to participate and adequate substantive responses filed on 
behalf of the domestic interested parties and inadequate response from 
respondent interested parties, the Department has conducted expedited 
sunset reviews of these antidumping duty orders. As a result of these 
sunset reviews, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping 
duty orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping 
at the level indicated in the ``Final Results of Reviews'' section of 
this notice.

DATES: Effective Date: October 28, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dennis McClure, Antidumping/
Countervailing Duty Operations, Import Administration, International 
Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-
5973.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Pursuant to section 736 of the Act, the Department published in the 
Federal Register the antidumping duty orders on certain circular welded 
carbon steel pipes and tubes from India, Thailand, and Turkey. See 
Antidumping Duty Order; Certain Welded Carbon Steel Standard Pipes and 
Tubes from India, 51 FR 17384 (May 12, 1986); Antidumping Duty Order; 
Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes From Thailand, 51 FR 8341 
(March 11, 1986); and Antidumping Duty Order; Welded Carbon Steel 
Standard Pipe and Tube Products From Turkey, 51 FR 17784 (May 15, 
1986).
    On July 1, 2011, the Department published a notice of initiation of 
the third sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on certain 
circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from India, Thailand, and 
Turkey, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-
Year (``Sunset'') Review, 76 FR 38613 (July 1, 2011).
    For each of these sunset reviews, the Department received notice of 
intent to participate from Allied Tube and Conduit, JMC Steel Group, 
Leavitt Tube, Northwest Pipe Company, TMK IPSCO Tubulars, U.S. Steel 
Corporation, and Western Tube and Conduit, (collectively, ``the 
domestic interested parties'') within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(i). In addition, Wheatland Tube Company (``Wheatland'') 
filed an entry of appearance and also requested recognition as a 
domestic interested party. The domestic interested parties claim 
interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as U.S. 
producers of the subject merchandise.
    On July 4, 2011, the Government of Turkey filed an entry of 
appearance as an interested party for the Turkish proceeding. On July 
5, 2011, the Government of Turkey requested the Department to extend 
the 30-day deadline for filing its substantive response as specified in 
19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). On July 7, 2011, Saha Thai Steel Pipe (Public) 
Company, Ltd. (``Saha Thai''), a Thai producer and exporter, entered an 
appearance as a respondent interested party. On August 10, 2011, the 
Department extended the deadline to file a substantive response until 
August 10, 2011.
    On July 29, August 1, and 10, 2011, we received complete 
substantive responses from the domestic interested parties within the 
extended deadline established by the Department. Wheatland Tube Company 
did not file a substantive response. Saha Thai did not file a 
substantive response. On August 9, 2011, the Government of Turkey 
submitted a substantive response within the extended deadline.\1\ On 
August 17, 2011, we received rebuttal comments to the Government of 
Turkey's substantive response from U.S. Steel Corporation. We received 
no other substantive responses from respondent interested parties on 
the three antidumping duty orders currently under review and, 
therefore, did not have adequate respondent interested party 
participation pursuant to 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(A).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Government of Turkey did not claim to have exported 
subject merchandise.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Based on these circumstances, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department has 
conducted expedited sunset reviews of these antidumping duty orders.

versions are identical in content.

Final Results of Reviews

    We determine that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on 
certain circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from India, 
Thailand, and Turkey would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of 
dumping at the following weighted-average percentage margins:

Appendix 1

Scope of the Antidumping Duty Orders

India--Welded Carbon Steel Pipe and Tube (A-533-502)

    The products covered by the order include certain welded carbon 
steel standard pipes and tubes with an outside diameter of 0.375 inch 
or more but not over 16 inches. These products are commonly referred to 
in the industry as standard pipes and tubes produced to various 
American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) specifications, most 
notably A-53, A-120, or A-135.
    The antidumping duty order on certain welded carbon steel standard 
pipes and tubes from India, published on May 12, 1986, included 
standard scope language which used the import classification system as 
defined by Tariff Schedules of the United States, Annotated (TSUSA). 
The United States developed a system of tariff classification based on 
the international harmonized system of customs nomenclature. On January 
1, 1989, the U.S. tariff schedules were fully converted from the TSUSA 
to the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS). See, e.g., Certain Welded 
Carbon Steel Standard Pipes and Tubes from India; Preliminary Results 
of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 56 FR 26650, 26651 (June 
10, 1991). As a result of this transition, the scope language we used 
in the 1991 Federal Register notice is slightly different from the 
scope language of the original final determination and antidumping duty 
order.
    Until January 1, 1989, such merchandise was classifiable under item 
numbers 610.3231, 610.3234, 610.3241, 610.3242, 610.3243, 610.3252, 
610.3254, 610.3256, 610.3258, and 610.4925 of the TSUSA. This 
merchandise is currently classifiable under HTS item numbers 
7306.30.1000, 7306.30.5025, 7306.30.5032, 7306.30.5040, 7306.30.5055, 
7306.30.5085, 7306.30.5090. As with the TSUSA numbers, the HTS numbers 
are provided for convenience and customs purposes. The written product 
description remains dispositive.\2\

Turkey--Welded Carbon Steel Pipe and Tube (A-489-501)

    The products covered by this order include circular welded non-
alloy steel pipes and tubes, of circular cross-section, not more than 
406.4 millimeters (16 inches) in outside diameter, regardless of wall 
thickness, surface finish (black, or galvanized, painted), or end 
finish (plain end, beveled end, threaded and coupled). Those pipes and 
tubes are generally known as standard pipe, though they may also be 
called structural or mechanical tubing in certain applications. 
Standard pipes and tubes are intended for the low pressure conveyance 
of water, steam, natural gas, air, and other liquids and gases in 
plumbing and heating systems, air conditioner units, automatic 
sprinkler systems, and other related uses. Standard pipe may also be 
used for light load-bearing and mechanical applications, such as for 
fence tubing, and for protection of electrical wiring, such as conduit 
shells.
    The scope is not limited to standard pipe and fence tubing, or 
those types of mechanical and structural pipe that are used in standard 
pipe applications. All carbon steel pipes and tubes within the physical 
description outlined above are included in the scope of this order, 
except for line pipe, oil country tubular goods, boiler tubing, cold-
drawn or cold-rolled mechanical tubing, pipe and tube hollows for 
redraws, finished scaffolding, and finished rigid conduit.
    Imports of these products are currently classifiable under the 
following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') 
subheadings: 7306.30.10.00, 7306.30.50.25, 7306.30.50.32, 
7306.30.50.40, 7306.30.50.55, 7306.30.50.85, and 7306.30.50.90. 
Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs 
purposes, our written description of the scope of this proceeding is 
dispositive.\5\
