SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is amending its 
final results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty 
order on welded carbon steel standard pipe and tube products (welded 
pipe and tube) from Turkey for the period May 1, 2014, through April 
30, 2015, to correct ministerial errors. The amended final weighted-
average dumping margins for the reviewed firms are listed below in the 
section entitled, ``Amended Final Results.''

DATES: Effective February 17, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On December 20, 2016, the Department published the final results of 
the 2014-2015 administrative review in the Federal Register.\1\ On 
December 27, 2016, JMC Steel Group (JMC) filed a timely allegation that 
the Department made four ministerial errors in the Final Results and 
requested, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224, that the Department correct the 
alleged ministerial errors. We received rebuttal comments from Borusan 
Istikbal Ticaret T.A.S. and Borusan Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret 
A.S. (collectively, Borusan) and Toscelik Profil ve Sac Endustrisi A.S. 
and Tosyali Dis Ticaret A.S. (collectively, Toscelik) on January 3, 
2017.

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

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is welded pipe and tube. The 
welded pipe and tube subject to the order is currently classifiable 
under subheading 7306.30.1000, 7306.30.5025, 7306.30.5032, 
7306.30.5040, 7306.30.5055, 7306.30.5085, and 7306.30.5090 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). The HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes only. The 
written description is dispositive.\2\

    \2\ A full written description of the scope of the order is 
contained in the memorandum to Gary Taverman, Associate Deputy 
Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, ``Antidumping Administrative Review of Welded Carbon 
Steel Standard Pipe and Tube Products from Turkey; 2014-2015: 
Ministerial Error Memorandum,'' (Ministerial Errors Memorandum), 
dated concurrently with this notice and incorporated herein by 
reference.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 all parties' comments, we have 
determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.224(f), that certain ministerial errors were made in the Final 
Results. For a detailed discussion of these ministerial errors, as well 
as the Department's analysis of these errors, see Ministerial Errors 
Memorandum.
    In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), 
we are amending the Final Results of this administrative review of 
welded pipe and tube from Turkey. The rate for the companies not 
selected for individual examination is equal to the simple average of 
Borusan's dumping margin and Toscelik's dumping margin.\3\ The dumping 
margins for the period of

[[Page 11003]]

review for these amended final results are as follows:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ We calculated a simple average, because the record does not 
contain usable publicly ranged data for both respondents.
    \4\ This rate also applies to Borusan Istikbal Ticaret T.A.S. As 
explained in the Welded Carbon Steel Standard Pipe and Tube Products 
from Turkey: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, and Partial Rescission of Review; 2014-2015, 81 FR 38131 
(June 13, 2015) (Preliminary Results), the Department treats Borusan 
Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. and Borusan Istikbal Ticaret 
T.A.S. as the same legal entity. See Preliminary Results, and 
accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 1-2, n.3; unchanged 
in Final Results.
    \5\ Also includes Tosyali Dis Ticaret A.S. As explained in the 
Preliminary Results, the Department treats Toscelik Profil ve Sac

entity. See Preliminary Results, and accompanying Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum at 2, n.3; unchanged in Final Results.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed for these amended 
final results of review within five days of the date of publication of 
this notice in the Federal Register, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.224(b).

Assessment

    The Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review pursuant to 
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b).
    For both Borusan and Toscelik, because their weighted-average 
dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), 
the Department has calculated importer-specific antidumping duty 
assessment rates. We calculated importer-specific ad valorem 
antidumping duty assessment rates by aggregating the total amount of 
dumping calculated for the examined sales of each importer and dividing 
each of these amounts by the total entered value associated with those 
sales. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review where an importer-specific 
assessment rate is not zero or de minimis. Pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to 
antidumping duties any entries for which the importer-specific 
assessment rate is zero or de minimis.
    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
will instruct CBP to apply the rate assigned to them in these amended 
final results of this review to all entries of subject merchandise 
produced and/or exported by these companies.
    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
the amended final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results 
of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the 
Act: (1) The cash deposit rates will be equal to the weighted-average 
dumping margins established in the final results of this review; (2) 
for previously reviewed or investigated companies not participating in 
this review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding in which the company was reviewed; (3) if the exporter is 
not a firm covered in this review, a previous review, or the original 
less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the 
cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently 
completed segment of this proceeding for the manufacturer of subject 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will continue to be 14.74 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the LTFV investigation.\6\ These deposit requirements, 
when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pipe and Tube Products from Turkey, 51 FR 17784 (May 15, 1986).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the destruction of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to 
comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.
    These amended final results and notice are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(h), and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.224(e).
