Certain Circular Welded Non-Alloy Steel Pipe From Brazil, Mexico, the Republic of Korea, and Taiwan; and Certain Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes From Taiwan: Final Results of the Expedited Third Sunset Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Order, 66899-66901 [2011-27980]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 209 / Friday, October 28, 2011 / Notices sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES the Act indicate that there is circumvention of the Order. Consequently, our statutory analysis leads us to find that there was circumvention of the Order as a result of Angang’s assembly of the PRC-origin, semi-finished hangers into finished garment hangers in Vietnam for export to the United States, as discussed above. Therefore, in light of our final determination, the Department will instruct CBP to suspend liquidation on all entries of garment hangers produced and/or exported by Angang that were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of initiation of the anti-circumvention inquiry. Should the Department conduct an administrative review of the Order in the future, both Quyky and Angang will have the opportunity to provide information related to their use of PRCorigin or self-produced garment hangers so that the Department may determine the appropriate assessment rate. Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 733(d) of the Act, the Department will continue to direct CBP to suspend liquidation and to require a cash deposit of estimated duties, at the PRC-wide rate of 187.25 percent, on all unliquidated entries of garment hangers produced and/or exported by Angang and Quyky that were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after July 16, 2010, the date of initiation of the anti-circumvention inquiry. In comments to the Department, Angang asked the Department (1) to revisit its determination to suspend liquidation of all of Angang’s entries and (2) to allow certifications for Angang’s future entries. Angang has provided conflicting statements on whether it could segregate PRC-origin, semi-finished hangers from the selfproduced, semi-finished hangers in Vietnam,31 and record evidence supports the conclusion that Angang commingles the two groups of merchandise in a work-in-progress warehouse. Therefore, the Department declines to grant Angang’s requests. For further discussion of this issue, see the Decision Memorandum.32 As stated above, if requested, should the Department conduct an administrative review in the future, and determine in the context of that review that either Quyky or Angang have not produced for export garment hangers using PRC-origin, semi-finished hangers, the Department will consider a changed circumstances review pursuant to section 751(b) of the Act to determine if the continued suspension of all garment hangers produced by Quyky or Angang is warranted. Notification to Interested Parties This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to the administrative protective order (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. 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 violation which is subject to sanction. This final affirmative circumvention determination is published in accordance with section 781(b) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.225(h). Dated: October 21, 2011. Ronald K.

the Republic of Korea

    The products covered by the orders are 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, galvanized, or painted), or end 
finish (plain end, beveled end, threaded and coupled). These pipes and 
tubes are generally known as standard pipes and tubes and are intended 
for the low pressure conveyance of water, steam, natural gas, and other 
liquids and gasses in plumbing and heating systems, air conditioning 
units, automatic sprinkler systems, and other related uses, and 
generally meets ASTM A-53 specifications. Standard pipe may also be 
used for light load-bearing applications, such as for fence tubing, and 
as structural pipe tubing used for farming and support members for 
reconstruction or load bearing purposes in the construction, 
shipbuilding, trucking, farm equipment, and related industries. 
Unfinished conduit pipe is also included in the orders.
    All carbon steel pipes and tubes within the physical description 
outlined above are included within the scope of the orders, except line 
pipe, oil country tubular goods, boiler tubing, mechanical tubing, pipe 
and tube hollows for redraws, finished scaffolding, and finished 
conduit. Standard pipe that is dual or triple certified/stenciled that 
enters the U.S. as line pipe of a kind used for oil or gas pipelines is 
also not included in the orders.
    Imports of the products covered by the orders are currently 
classifiable under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 7306.30.10.00, 7306.30.50.25,

for the low pressure conveyance of water, steam, natural gas, air, and 
other liquids and gases in plumbing and heating systems, air 
conditioning units, automatic sprinkling systems, and other related 
uses, and generally meet ASTM A-53 specifications. Standard pipe may

Final Results of Sunset Reviews

    We determine that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on

pipes and tubes from Taiwan would be likely to lead to continuation or 
recurrence of dumping at the following weighted-average percentage 
margins:
