Light-Walled Rectangular Pipe and Tube From Mexico, Turkey, the 
People's Republic of China, and the Republic of Korea: Continuation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) has determined 
that revocation of the antidumping (AD) orders on light-walled 
rectangular pipe and tube (light-walled pipe and tube) from Mexico, 
Turkey, the People's Republic of China (PRC), and the Republic of Korea 
(Korea) would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, and 
that revocation of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on light-walled 
pipe and tube from the PRC would likely lead to continuation or 
recurrence of a countervailable subsidy. The U.S. International Trade 
Commission (the ITC) has also determined that revocation of these AD 
and CVD orders would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of 
material injury to an industry in the United States. Accordingly, the 
Department is publishing this notice of the continuation of these AD 
and CVD orders.

DATES: Effective Date: June 23, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 2, 2013, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
initiated the first five-year (``sunset'') reviews of the AD orders on 
light-walled pipe and tube from Mexico, Turkey, the PRC, and Korea \1\ 
(collectively, the AD Orders) and the first sunset review of the 
countervailing duty order on light-walled pipe and tube from the PRC 
\2\ (CVD Order) pursuant to sections 751(c) and 752 of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (the Act).\3\ As a result of these sunset reviews, 
the Department found that revocation of the AD Orders would likely lead 
to continuation or recurrence of dumping and that revocation of the CVD 
Order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of 
countervailable subsidies and, therefore, notified the ITC of the 
magnitude of the margins of dumping and the subsidy rates likely to 
prevail should the AD Orders and the CVD Order be revoked.\4\

    The merchandise subject to the orders is certain welded carbon 
quality light-walled steel pipe and tube, of rectangular (including 
square) cross section, having a wall thickness of less than 4 mm. The 
term carbon-quality steel includes both carbon steel and

[[Page 35523]]

alloy steel which contains only small amounts of alloying elements. 
Specifically, the term carbon-quality includes products in which none 
of the elements listed below exceeds the quantity by weight 
respectively indicated: 1.80 percent of manganese, or 2.25 percent of 
silicon, or 1.00 percent of copper, or 0.50 percent of aluminum, or

and material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to 
sections 751(c) and 751(d)(2) of the Act, the Department hereby orders
