SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is amending the final results of the antidumping duty administrative review of certain pasta (pasta) from Italy to correct a ministerial error. The period of review (POR) is July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015. DATES: Effective January 25, 2017. Imports covered by the order are shipments of certain non-egg dry pasta. The merchandise subject to review is currently classifiable under items 1901.90.90.95 and 1902.19.20 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise subject to the order is dispositive.4 AGENCY: Scope of the Order Ministerial Errors Section 751(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.224(f) define a ministerial error as an error ‘‘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 Department} considers ministerial.’’ We analyzed the ministerial error comments submitted by Indalco and Liguori and determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), that there is a ministerial error in our margin calculations for Liguori for the Final Results. For a complete discussion of the alleged errors, see the Department’s Ministerial Error Memorandum.5 In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the Final Results. Specifically, we are amending the weighted-average dumping margin for Liguori, as well as for the companies that were not selected for individual examination, which were assigned the rate based on the weighted-average dumping margins for Indalco and Liguori.6 The revised weighted-average dumping margins for the affected companies are detailed below.

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

Period of Review

    The POR covered by this review is July 1, 2014, through June 30, 
2015.

Scope of the Order

    Imports covered by the order are shipments of certain non-egg dry 
pasta. The merchandise subject to review is currently classifiable 
under items 1901.90.90.95 and 1902.19.20 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings

Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and

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

Ministerial Errors

    Section 751(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 
19 CFR 351.224(f) define a ministerial error as an error ``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 Department{time}  considers 
ministerial.'' We analyzed the ministerial error comments submitted by 
Indalco and Liguori and determined, in accordance with section 751(h) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), that there is a ministerial error in 
our margin calculations for Liguori for the Final Results. For a 
complete discussion of the alleged errors, see the Department's 
Ministerial Error Memorandum.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See ``Amended Final Results of the 2014-2015 Administrative 
Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Certain Pasta from Italy: 
Allegation of Ministerial Error,'' dated concurrently with this 
notice (``Ministerial Error Memorandum'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), 
we are amending the Final Results. Specifically, we are amending the 
weighted-average dumping margin for Liguori, as well as for the 
companies that were not selected for individual examination, which were 
assigned the rate based on the weighted-average dumping margins for 
Indalco and Liguori.\6\ The revised weighted-average dumping margins 
for the affected companies are detailed below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Final Results, 81 FR at 91120.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Amended Final Results

    As a result of correcting for the ministerial error, we determined 
the following amended weighted-average dumping margins exist for the 
period July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015:

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

duties, in the amounts shown above for each of the respective companies 
shown above, on shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after December 16, 2016, the date
