SUMMARY: On April 6, 2015, the Department of Commerce (Department) published its preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Thailand covering the period of review (POR) March 1, 2013, through February 28, 2014.1 This review covers two producers and/or exporters of the subject merchandise, Saba Thai Steel Pipe (Public) Company, Ltd. (Saba Thai), and Pacific Pipe Company Limited (Pacific Pipe). For the final results, we continue to find that Saha Thai and Pacific Pipe did not sell subject merchandise to the United States at below normal value during the POR. The final results are listed in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of Review’’ below. DATES: Effective date: October 2, 2015 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Nicholas Czajkowski at (202) 482–1395; AD/CVD Operations, Office VII, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On August 12, 2015, we invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. Saha Thai submitted a case brief on August 20, 2015. No other parties submitted case briefs or rebuttal briefs for this proceeding. The Department conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order BILLING CODE 3510–DS–P The products covered by the antidumping order are certain circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Thailand. The subject merchandise has an outside diameter of 0.375 inches 5 See the letter withdrawing request for an administrative review from RZBC Group, dated July 2, 2015; see also the letters withdrawing requests for an administrative review from the petitioners and Taihe, dated July 31, 2015. 1 See Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes From Thailand: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2013– 2014, 80 FR 18354 (April 6, 2015) (Preliminary Results).

These products, which are commonly referred to in the industry as ‘‘standard pipe’’ or ‘‘structural tubing’’ are hereinafter designated as ‘‘pipes and tubes.’’ The merchandise is classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers 7306.30.1000, 7306.30.5025, 7306.30.5032, 7306.30.5040, 7306.30.5055, 7306.30.5085 and 7306.30.5090. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and purposes of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the written description of the merchandise subject to the order is dispositive. Analysis of Comments Received We have analyzed the comments submitted by Saha Thai. In its case brief, Saha Thai made several arguments objecting to the Department’s differential pricing analysis. The Department has used the standard A-toA method to calculate Saha Thai’s weighted-average dumping margin (unchanged from the Preliminary Results).2 Therefore, it is not necessary to address the comments raised by Saha Thai in a separate Issues and Decision Memorandum. Changes Since the Preliminary Results We made changes to Pacific Pipe’s calculation for the final results. Specifically, we (1) used updated sales and cost of production databases, (2) adjusted the home market sales cost of production databases based on minor corrections at verification, (3) revised Pacific Pipe’s reported per-unit costs to correspond to the reported total cost of manufacturing of the merchandise under consideration, and (4) revised Pacific Pipe’s general and administrative expense rate.3 We made no changes to Saha Thai’s calculations. Final Results of Review The final weighted-average dumping margins for the period March 1, 2013, 2 See Memorandum to the File, ‘‘Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes From Thailand: Saha Thai Steel Pipe (Public) Company, Ltd.
