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, air, and other liquids and gases in plumbing and heating systems, air-conditioning units, automatic sprinkler systems, and other related uses. Standard pipe may also be used for light load-bearing applications, such as for fence tubing, and as structural pipe tubing used for framing and as support members for reconstruction or load-bearing purposes in the construction, shipbuilding, trucking, farm equipment, and other related industries. Unfinished conduit pipe is also included in the order. All carbon-steel pipes and tubes within the physical description outlined above are included within the scope of the order except line pipe, oil-country tubular goods, boiler tubing, mechanical tubing, pipe and tube hollows for redraws, finished scaffolding, and finished conduit.2 Imports of these products are currently classifiable under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) numbers: 7306.30.1000, 7306.30.5025, 7306.30.5032, 7306.30.5040, 7306.30.5055, 7306.30.5085, and 7306.30.5090.

AGENCY: International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The United States Department of Commerce, International Trade 
Administration (ITA) is organizing the 3rd Annual Health IT Trade 
Mission to Brazil from September 26-30, 2016. This mission is a 
continuation of two consecutive Health IT missions to Brazil and part 
of a sustained effort to help U.S. companies access the Brazilian 
Health IT market. Further, CS Brazil will work with leading Brazilian 
health media company, Live Media, and the Brazilian Health Informatics 
Association (SBIS) to organize an e-Health conference, which will be 
held in Sao Paulo at the same time as the trade mission. U.S. trade 
mission delegates will participate in the conference as part of the 
trade mission.
    The purpose of the trade mission is to introduce U.S. firms to 
Brazil's rapidly expanding market for Health IT products, services and 
solutions and to assist U.S. companies in the pursuit of export 
opportunities in this sector. The trade mission to Brazil is designed 
for U.S. Health IT solution providers, particularly small- and medium-
sized enterprises (SMEs), interested in long-term business 
opportunities in Brazil, as well as the trade associations/
organizations that represent them. Target sectors holding high 
potential for U.S exporters include: Electronic Health Records (EHRs), 
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Health IT interoperability system 
integration services, patient security, Health IT architecture design 
services, cyber security solutions, IoT solution providers, cloud 
solutions, clinical software, big data, clinical decision support, 
health analytics, health care transformation consulting, telehealth, 
smart mobile devices and mobile health applications, M2M connected 
devices, communication solutions, education of Health IT students and 
workforce training.
    Trade mission delegates will participate in a five-day program, 
including technical visits to hospitals, roundtables and policy 
meetings with public health officials in Sao Paulo and Recife. In 
addition, on September 27, as part of the trade mission, delegates will 
participate in a one-day technology seminar at the e-Health Conference 
in Sao Paulo, thus giving the delegation heightened exposure to 
potential clients and partners from countries around the world. (Note

opportunities to meet face-to-face with potential strategic partners, 
systems integrators, value added resellers (VAR's), hospital decision 
makers, planners and public health officials at the federal, state and 
city levels.
    This mission supports President Obama's National Export Initiative 
(NEI). The mission will help new-to-market companies learn about the 
Brazilian Health IT market and make initial contacts. It will also 
support U.S. companies already doing business in Brazil to increase 
their footprint and deepen their business interests. The mission will 
also help participating firms and associations/organizations gain 
market insights, make industry contacts, implement business strategies, 
and advance specific projects, with the goal of increasing U.S. exports
