SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 19, 2017, Commerce published in the Federal Register the preliminary determination of the CVD investigation of cast iron soil pipe fittings from China.1 On December 18, 2017, Wor-Biz International Trading Co., Ltd. (Anhui) (Wor-Biz) timely alleged that Commerce made a significant ministerial error in the Preliminary Determination. Significant Ministerial Error A ministerial error, as defined in section 705(e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 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 administering authority considers ministerial.’’ 2 With respect to preliminary determinations, 19 CFR 351.224(e) provides that Commerce ‘‘will analyze any comments received and, if appropriate, correct any significant ministerial error by amending the preliminary determination. . . .’’ A significant ministerial error is defined as an error, the correction of which, singly or in combination with other errors, would result in: (1) A change of at least five absolute percentage points in, but not less than 25 percent of, the countervailable subsidy rate calculated in the original (erroneous) preliminary determination; or (2) a difference between a countervailable subsidy rate of zero (or de minimis) and a countervailable subsidy rate of greater than de minimis, or vice versa.3 daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Ministerial Error Allegation Wor-Biz alleges that, in the Preliminary Determination, Commerce erred in calculating the benchmark prices for the Provision of Pig Iron for LTAR and the Provision of Ferrous 1 See Cast Iron Soil Pipe Fittings from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination and Alignment of Final Determination With Final Antidumping Duty Determination, 82 FR 60178 (December 19, 2017) (Preliminary Determination) and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 2 See also 19 CFR 351.224(f). 3 See 19 CFR 351.224(g)(1) and (2).

This amended preliminary determination is published in accordance with sections 705(e) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e) and (g).

BILLING CODE 3510–DS–P We are amending the preliminary subsidy rate for Wor-Biz pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(e). In addition, because the preliminary ‘‘All-Others’’ Rate was based on the weighted average of the subsidy rates calculated for Wor-Biz and Shanxi Xuanshi Industrial Group Co., Ltd,5 we are also amending the ‘‘AllOthers’’ rate to account for the change in Wor-Biz’s subsidy rate. Further, because the adverse facts available rate assigned to the non-cooperative respondent Shijiazhuang Chengmei Import & Export Co., Ltd. was determined using, in part, the highest calculated program-specific rates determined for the cooperating respondents,6 we are also amending the adverse facts available rate to account for our correction of Wor-Biz’s Provision of Pig Iron for LTAR and Provision of Ferrous Scrap for LTAR program rates.7 The revised subsidy rates are as follows: Subsidy rate (percent) Company DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE International Trade Administration [A–475–818] Certain Pasta From Italy: Notice of Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce.
