Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the order is steel threaded rod.\2\ 
Steel threaded rod is certain threaded rod, bar, or studs, of carbon 
quality steel, having a solid, circular cross section, of any diameter, 
in any straight length, that have been forged, turned, cold-drawn, 
cold-rolled, machine straightened, or otherwise cold-finished, and into 
which threaded grooves have been applied. Certain steel threaded rod 
subject to the order is currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') at subheadings 7318.15.5051, 
7318.15.5056, 7318.15.5090, and 7318.15.2095. Although the HTSUS 
subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written description of the merchandise is dispositive.\3\

regarding ``Sixth Antidumping Administrative Review of Certain Steel

Amended Final Results

    Section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), 
defines ``ministerial error'' as including ``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 administering authority considers 
ministerial.'' After analyzing New Oriental's comments, we have 
determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.224(e), that we made certain ministerial errors in the final 
results with respect to our calculation of surrogate financial 
ratios.\4\
