Covered products are generally made to standard O.D. and wall thickness combinations. Pipe multi-stenciled to a standard and/or structural specification and to other specifications, such as American Petroleum Institute (API) API–5L specification, may also be covered by the scope of these investigations. In particular, such multistenciled merchandise is covered when it meets the physical description set forth above, and also has one or more of the following characteristics: is 32 feet in length or less; Is less than 2.0 inches (50 mm) in outside diameter; has a galvanized and/or painted (e.g., polyester coated) surface finish; or has a threaded and/or coupled end finish. Standard pipe is ordinarily made to ASTM specifications A53, A135, and A795, but can also be made to other specifications. Structural pipe is made primarily to ASTM specifications A252 and A500. Standard and structural pipe may also be produced to proprietary specifications rather than to industry specifications. Sprinkler pipe is designed for sprinkler fire suppression systems and may be made to industry specifications such as ASTM A53 or to proprietary specifications. Fence tubing is included in the scope regardless of certification to a specification listed in the exclusions below, and can also be made to the ASTM A513 specification.

The HTSUS subheadings above are provided for convenience and U.S. Customs purposes only. The written description of the scope of the orders is dispositive. Amendment to Oman Final Determination By statute, the term ministerial error includes errors in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical errors resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers ministerial.3 Pursuant to section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224 (e) and (f), the Department is amending the Oman Final Determination to reflect the correction of a ministerial error it made in calculating the final margin assigned to Al Jazeera Steel Products Co. SAOG (Al Jazeera). In addition, because the Oman all-others rate is based solely on Al Jazeera’s dumping margin, we are revising the all-others rate.4 Al Jazeera reported its cost of production (COP) data on a different weight basis than its sales data.5 In the final determination, we revised Al Jazeera’s COP data, consistent with the sales data.6 On November 1, 2016, the petitioners 7 submitted a ministerial error allegation claiming that, in implementing this change, the Department recalculated the total cost of manufacturing of each control number, but neglected to make the same adjustment to the fixed overhead field. We reviewed the record, and agree that we made a ministerial error within the meaning of section 735(e) and 19 CFR 351.224(f). Specifically, we made an unintentional error with regard to the calculation of Al Jazeera’s per-unit costs.8 Pursuant to 351.224(e), we have corrected this error in this notice. 3 See section 735(e) of the Act. the ‘‘Estimated Weighted-Average Dumping Margins’’ section below. 5 See the Oman Final Determination and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 4. 6 Id. 7 The petitioners are Bull Moose Tube Company, EXLTUBE, Wheatland Tube Company, and Western Tube and Conduit (collectively, the petitioners). 8 See Memorandum to Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary, AD/CVD Operations, entitled 4 See PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 91907 Antidumping Duty Orders As stated above, on December 12, 2016, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified the Department of its final determinations in these investigations, in which it found material injury with respect to circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe from Oman, Pakistan, and the UAE.9 Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(2) of the Act, we are issuing these antidumping duty orders. Because the ITC determined that imports of circular welded carbonquality steel pipe from Oman, Pakistan, and the UAE are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from Oman, Pakistan, and the UAE entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties. Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the merchandise, for all relevant entries of circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe from Oman, Pakistan, and the UAE. Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe from Oman, Pakistan, and the UAE entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after June 8, 2016, the date of publication of the preliminary determinations.10 Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on all relevant entries of circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe from Oman, Pakistan, and the UAE.

We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the amounts as indicated below. Accordingly, effective on the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determinations, CBP will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the estimated weighted-average dumping margins listed below.11 The relevant allothers rates apply to all producers or exporters not specifically listed. Provisional Measures Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions issued pursuant to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect for more than four months, except where exporters representing a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request the Department to extend that four-month period to no more than six months. At the request of exporters that account for a significant proportion of circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe from Oman, Pakistan, and the UAE, we extended the four-month period to six months in each case.12 In the underlying investigations, the Department published the preliminary determinations on June 8, 2016. Therefore, the extended period, beginning on the date of publication of the preliminary determinations, ended December 5, 2016. Furthermore, section 737(b) of the Act states that definitive duties are to begin on the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination. Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act and our practice, we will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, unliquidated entries of circular welded carbonquality steel pipe from Oman, Pakistan, and the UAE entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after December 5, 2016, the date on which the provisional measures expired, until and through the day preceding the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determinations in the Federal Register.

Scope of the Orders

    The merchandise covered by these orders is welded carbon-quality 
steel pipes and tube, of circular cross-section, with an outside 
diameter (O.D.) not more than nominal 16 inches (406.4 mm), regardless 
of wall thickness, surface finish (e.g., black, galvanized, or 
painted), end finish (plain end, beveled end, grooved, threaded, or 
threaded and coupled), or industry specification (e.g., American 
Society for Testing and Materials International (ASTM), proprietary, or 
other), generally known as standard pipe, fence pipe and tube, 
sprinkler pipe, and structural pipe (although subject product may also 
be referred to as mechanical tubing). Specifically, the term ``carbon 
quality'' includes products in which:
    (a) iron predominates, by weight, over each of the other contained 
elements;
    (b) the carbon content is 2 percent or less, by weight; and
    (c) none of the elements listed below exceeds the quantity, by 
weight, as indicated:
    (i) 1.80 percent of manganese;
    (ii) 2.25 percent of silicon;
    (iii) 1.00 percent of copper;
    (iv) 0.50 percent of aluminum;
    (v) 1.25 percent of chromium;
    (vi) 0.30 percent of cobalt;
    (vii) 0.40 percent of lead;
    (viii) 1.25 percent of nickel;
    (ix) 0.30 percent of tungsten;
    (x) 0.15 percent of molybdenum;
    (xi) 0.10 percent of niobium;
    (xii) 0.41 percent of titanium;
    (xiii) 0.15 percent of vanadium; or
    (xiv) 0.15 percent of zirconium.
    Covered products are generally made to standard O.D. and wall 
thickness combinations. Pipe multi-stenciled to a standard and/or 
structural specification and to other specifications, such as American 
Petroleum Institute (API) API-5L specification, may also be covered by 
the scope of these investigations. In particular, such multi-stenciled 
merchandise is covered when it meets the physical description set forth 
above, and also has one or more of the following characteristics: is 32 
feet in length or less; Is less than 2.0 inches (50 mm) in outside 
diameter; has a galvanized and/or painted (e.g., polyester coated) 
surface finish; or has a threaded and/or coupled end finish.
    Standard pipe is ordinarily made to ASTM specifications A53, A135, 
and A795, but can also be made to other specifications. Structural pipe 
is made primarily to ASTM specifications A252 and A500. Standard and 
structural pipe may also be produced to proprietary specifications 
rather than to industry specifications.
    Sprinkler pipe is designed for sprinkler fire suppression systems 
and may be made to industry specifications such as ASTM A53 or to 
proprietary specifications.
    Fence tubing is included in the scope regardless of certification 
to a specification listed in the exclusions below, and can also be made 
to the ASTM A513 specification. Products that meet the physical 
description set forth above but are made to the following nominal 
outside diameter and wall thickness combinations, which are recognized 
by the industry as typical for fence tubing, are included despite being 
certified to ASTM mechanical tubing specifications:

Amendment to Oman Final Determination

    By statute, the term ministerial error includes errors in addition, 
subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical errors resulting 
from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other type 
of unintentional error which the Secretary considers ministerial.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See section 735(e) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224 (e) and 
(f), the Department is amending the Oman Final Determination to reflect 
the correction of a ministerial error it made in calculating the final 
margin assigned to Al Jazeera Steel Products Co. SAOG (Al Jazeera). In 
addition, because the Oman all-others rate is based solely on Al 
Jazeera's dumping margin, we are revising the all-others rate.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See the ``Estimated Weighted-Average Dumping Margins'' 
section below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Al Jazeera reported its cost of production (COP) data on a 
different weight basis than its sales data.\5\ In the final 
determination, we revised Al Jazeera's COP data, consistent with the 
sales data.\6\ On November 1, 2016, the petitioners \7\ submitted a 
ministerial error allegation claiming that, in implementing this 
change, the Department recalculated the total cost of manufacturing of 
each control number, but neglected to make the same adjustment to the 
fixed overhead field. We reviewed the record, and agree that we made a 
ministerial error within the meaning of section 735(e) and 19 CFR 
351.224(f). Specifically, we made an unintentional error with regard to 
the calculation of Al Jazeera's per-unit costs.\8\ Pursuant to 
351.224(e), we have corrected this error in this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See the Oman Final Determination and accompanying Issues and 
Decision Memorandum at Comment 4.
    \6\ Id.
    \7\ The petitioners are Bull Moose Tube Company, EXLTUBE, 
Wheatland Tube Company, and Western Tube and Conduit (collectively, 
the petitioners).
    \8\ See Memorandum to Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant 
Secretary, AD/CVD Operations, entitled ``Allegation of a Ministerial 
Error in the Final Determination,'' dated November 18, 2016.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Antidumping Duty Orders

    As stated above, on December 12, 2016, in accordance with section 
735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified the Department of its final 
determinations in these investigations, in which it found material 
injury with respect to circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe from 
Oman, Pakistan, and the UAE.\9\ Therefore, in accordance with section 
735(c)(2) of the Act, we are issuing these antidumping duty orders. 
Because the ITC determined that imports of circular welded carbon-
quality steel pipe from Oman, Pakistan, and the UAE are materially 
injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from 
Oman, Pakistan, and the UAE entered or withdrawn from warehouse for 
consumption, are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See ITC Notification.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the 
Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties 
equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise 
exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the 
merchandise, for all relevant entries of circular welded carbon-quality 
steel pipe from Oman, Pakistan, and the UAE. Antidumping duties will be 
assessed on unliquidated entries of circular welded carbon-quality 
steel pipe from Oman, Pakistan, and the UAE entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after June 8, 2016, the date of 
publication of the preliminary determinations.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See Circular Welded Carbon-Quality Steel Pipe from the 
Sultanate of Oman: Affirmative Preliminary Determination of Sales at 
Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of Final Determination, 81 FR 
36871 (June 8, 2016) (Oman Preliminary Determination); Circular 
Welded Carbon-Quality Steel Pipe from Pakistan: Affirmative 
Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and 
Postponement of Final Determination and Extension of Provisional 
Measures, 81 FR 36867 (June 8, 2016) (Pakistan Preliminary 
Determination); and Circular Welded Carbon-Quality Steel Pipe from 
the United Arab Emirates: Affirmative Preliminary Determination of 
Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of Final 
Determination, 81 FR 36881 (June 8, 2016) (UAE Final Determination).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will 
instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on all relevant entries 
of circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe from Oman, Pakistan, and 
the UAE. These

[[Page 91908]]

instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further 
notice.
    We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the 
amounts as indicated below. Accordingly, effective on the date of 
publication of the ITC's final affirmative injury determinations, CBP 
will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit 
estimated duties on this subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to 
the estimated weighted-average dumping margins listed below.\11\ The 
relevant all-others rates apply to all producers or exporters not 
specifically listed.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See section 736(a)(3) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Provisional Measures

    Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions issued pursuant 
to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect 
for more than four months, except where exporters representing a 
significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request 
the Department to extend that four-month period to no more than six 
months. At the request of exporters that account for a significant 
proportion of circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe from Oman, 
Pakistan, and the UAE, we extended the four-month period to six months 
in each case.\12\ In the underlying investigations, the Department 
published the preliminary determinations on June 8, 2016. Therefore, 
the extended period, beginning on the date of publication of the 
preliminary determinations, ended December 5, 2016. Furthermore, 
section 737(b) of the Act states that definitive duties are to begin on 
the date of publication of the ITC's final injury determination.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See Oman Preliminary Determination; Pakistan Preliminary 
Determination; and UAE Preliminary Determination.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act and our 
practice, we will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of 
liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, 
unliquidated entries of circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe from 
Oman, Pakistan, and the UAE entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after December 5, 2016, the date on which the 
provisional measures expired, until and through the day preceding the 
date of publication of the ITC's final injury determinations in the 
Federal Register. Suspension of liquidation will resume on the date of 
publication of the ITC's final determinations in the Federal Register.
