For a complete discussion of the alleged error, see the Department’s Ministerial Error Memorandum.4 In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the Final Results.

    The products covered by this order are certain welded carbon steel 
pipe and tube with an outside diameter of 0.375 inch or more, but not

These products are currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings as 7306.30.10, 
7306.30.50, and 7306.90.10. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided

Ministerial Errors

    Section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''),

addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error 
resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any

ministerial.'' We analyzed the Borusan Companies' ministerial error 
comments and determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.224(e), that there was a ministerial error in our 
calculation of the Borusan Companies net subsidy rate for the Final 
Results. For a complete discussion of the alleged error, see the
