Certain Circular Welded Non-Alloy Steel Pipe From Taiwan

    The products covered by this order are (1) circular welded non-
alloy steel pipes and tubes, of circular cross section over 114.3 
millimeters (4.5 inches), but not over 406.4 millimeters (16 inches) in 
outside diameter, with a wall thickness of 1.65 millimeters (0.065 
inches) or more, regardless of surface finish (black, galvanized, or 
painted), or end-finish (plain end, beveled end, threaded, or threaded 
and coupled); and (2) circular welded non-alloy steel pipes and tubes, 
of circular cross-section less than 406.4 millimeters (16 inches), with 
a wall thickness of less than 1.65 millimeters (0.065 inches), 
regardless of surface finish (black, galvanized, or painted) or end-
finish (plain end, beveled end, threaded, or threaded and coupled). 
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 sprinkling systems, and 
other related uses, and generally meet ASTM A-53 specifications. 
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 support members for construction, or load-bearing purposes in the 
construction, shipbuilding, trucking, farm-equipment, and related 
industries. Unfinished conduit pipe is also included in this order.
    All carbon steel pipes and tubes within the physical description 
outlined above are included within the scope of this order, except line 
pipe, oil country tubular goods, boiler tubing, mechanical tubing, pipe 
and tube hollows for redraws, finished scaffolding, and finished 
conduit. Standard pipe that is dual or triple certified/stenciled that 
enters the U.S. as line pipe of a kind or used for oil and gas 
pipelines is also not included in this investigation.

Final Results of Sunset Review

    Pursuant to sections 752(c)(1) and (3) of the Act, we determine 
that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on certain circular 
welded non-alloy steel pipe from Brazil, Mexico, Korea, and Taiwan 
would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping. We 
determine that the weighted-average dumping margins likely to prevail 
are up to the following percentages:
