The WTO Appellate Body in March 2011 found that the United States had acted inconsistently with its international obligations in several respects, including the potential imposition of overlapping remedies, or so-called ‘‘double remedies.’’ 2 The U.S. Trade Representative announced the United States’ intention to comply with the WTO’s rulings and recommendations, and the Department initiated a section 129 proceeding.3 On July 31, 2012, the Department issued its final determination memorandum in the section 129 CVD proceeding on, inter alia, the double remedies issue.4 Based on its analysis of broad manufacturing-level information, the Department found that an adjustment was warranted to the antidumping duty on U.S. CWP imports from China to account for remedies that overlap those imposed by the CVD order.5 On August 30, 2012, acting at 1 See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe from the People’s Republic of China, 73 FR 42547 (July 22, 2008); Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe from the People’s Republic of China: Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination and Final Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances, 73 FR 31966 (June 5, 2008); Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Amended Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination and Notice of Countervailing Duty Order, 73 FR 42545 (July 22, 2008) (collectively, CWP orders). 2 See United States—Definitive Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Duties on Certain Products from China, 611, WT/DS379/AB/R (Mar. 11, 2011). 3 See Implementation of Determinations Under Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act: Certain New Pneumatic Off-the-Road Tires; Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe; Laminated Woven Sacks; and Light-Walled Rectangular Pipe and Tube From the People’s Republic of China, 77 FR 52683 (August 30, 2012) (Implementation Notice). 4 See Memorandum from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, ‘‘Final Determination: Section 129 Proceeding Pursuant to the WTO Appellate Body’s Findings in WTO DS379 Regarding the Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Investigations of Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe from the People’s Republic of China,’’ (July 31, 2012) (Section 129 Final Determination). 5 See Section 129 Preliminary Analysis Memorandum at 10; see also Memorandum from Christopher Mutz, Office of Policy, Import Administration, and Daniel Calhoun, Office of the Chief Counsel for Import Administration, to Paul PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the direction of the U.S. Trade Representative pursuant to section 129, the Department published a notice implementing that final determination.6 Plaintiff Wheatland Tube Company, Consolidated Plaintiff-Intervenor United States Steel Corporation, and Consolidated Plaintiff-Intervenors Allied Tube and Conduit and TMK IPSCO (collectively, the Domestic Interested Parties), challenged the Department’s determination at the CIT. On November 26, 2014, the Court remanded the section 129 Final Determination to the Department for further consideration of the finding that certain countervailable subsidies reduced the average price of U.S. CWP imports, such that the reduction warranted an adjustment to the companion AD rates under section 777A(f) of the Act.7 Following the CIT’s issuance of the Remand Order, the Department released a questionnaire to the original respondents in the CWP CVD investigation to obtain information necessary for its analysis under the Remand Order.8 The Department also issued copies of the questionnaire to the GOC and its counsel in the section 129 proceeding.9 Neither mandatory respondent nor the GOC, however, filed a response to this questionnaire or comments. Pursuant to the Remand Order, the Department reconsidered its finding regarding the respondents’ eligibility for Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, ‘‘Section 129 Determination of the Countervailing Duty Investigation of Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe from the People’s Republic of China: ‘Double Remedies’ Analysis Pursuant to the WTO Appellate Body’s Findings in WTO DS379,’’ (May 31, 2012), at 34–35. 6 See Implementation Notice. 7 See Wheatland Tube Company v.

Japan and the People's Republic of China, Revocation of the Antidumping 
Order on the Republic of Korea

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of 
Commerce (the Department) and the International Trade Commission (ITC) 
in their five year (sunset) reviews that revocation of the antidumping 
duty (AD) orders on polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) from Japan and the People's 
Republic of China (PRC) would likely lead to a continuation or 
recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United 
States, the Department is publishing a notice of continuation of the AD 
orders on PVA from Japan and the PRC. In addition, as a result of the 
ITC's determination that revocation of the AD order on PVA from the 
Republic of Korea (Korea) is not likely to lead to continuation or 
recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States, the 
Department is revoking the AD order on PVA from Korea.

DATES: Effective Date: Korea Revocation: April 13, 2014; Japan and PRC 
Continuation: May 27, 2015.
