The product is currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers 7306.30.5025, 7306.30.5032, 7306.30.5040, and 7306.30.5055.

Specifically, we used an incorrect window period to identify home market sales available for matching to U.S. sales (i.e., the ENDDAY variable in Commerce’s calculations program).

Assessment Commerce 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 Shin Yang, because its weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), Commerce has calculated importerspecific antidumping duty assessment rates. We calculated customer-specific weighted-average dumping margins by dividing the total amount of dumping for reviewed sales to the customer by the total sales quantity associated with those transactions, Commerce will direct CBP to assess customer-specific assessment rates based on the resulting per-unit rates.5 We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review where a customer-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. 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The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the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-fairvalue (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 9.70 percent, the all-others rate established 5 See PO 00000 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is amending the final 
results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
certain circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Taiwan. The 
period of review (POR) is May 1, 2015, through April 30, 2016. The 
amended final weighted-average dumping margin is listed below in the 
section entitled ``Amended Final Results.''

DATES: Applicable January 19, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 20, 2017, Commerce published the Final Results of this 
review in the Federal Register.\1\ On December 1, 2017, Shin Yang Steel 
Co., Ltd. (Shin Yang) timely filed a ministerial error allegation 
concerning the Final Results and requested, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224, 
that Commerce correct the alleged ministerial error.\2\

Memorandum, ``Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results 
of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Circular Welded 
Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from Taiwan; 2015-2016,'' dated

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is certain circular welded 
carbon steel pipes and tubes from Taiwan. The product is currently 
classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS) item numbers 7306.30.5025, 7306.30.5032, 7306.30.5040, and 
7306.30.5055. Although the HTSUS numbers are provided for convenience 
and customs purposes, the written product description remains 
dispositive.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ For a complete description of the scope of the order, see 
Final Results and accompanying (Issues and Decision Memorandum). The 
Department is not making any changes to the scope of the order for 
these amended final results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ministerial Error

    Section 351.224(e) of Commerce's regulations provides that Commerce 
will analyze any comments received and, if appropriate, correct any 
ministerial error by amending the final determination or the final 
results of the review. Section 751(h) 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 error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the 
like, and any other similar type of unintentional error which the 
Secretary considers ministerial.''
    We analyzed Shin Yang's ministerial error allegation and 
determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.224(e) and (f), that we made a ministerial error in our calculation 
of Shin Yang's dumping margin. Specifically, we used an incorrect 
window period to identify home market sales available for matching to 
U.S. sales (i.e., the ENDDAY variable in Commerce's calculations 
program). We have now corrected the error.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See memorandum, ``Amended Final Results Analysis Memorandum 
for Shin Yang Steel Co., Ltd.'' dated concurrently with this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Amended Final Results of Review

    As a result of correcting the ministerial error for this review, we 
determine that the following weighted-average dumping margin exists:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                          Dumping margin

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Shin Yang Steel Co., Ltd...............................            1.71
------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    Commerce 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 Shin Yang, because 
its weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., 
less than 0.5 percent), Commerce has calculated importer-specific 
antidumping duty assessment rates. We calculated customer-specific 
weighted-average dumping margins by dividing the total amount of 
dumping for reviewed sales to the customer by the total sales quantity 
associated with those transactions, Commerce will direct CBP to assess 
customer-specific assessment rates based on the resulting per-unit 
rates.\5\ We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review where a customer-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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 9.70 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the LTFV investigation.\6\ These deposit requirements, 
when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

from Taiwan: Antidumping Duty Order, 49 FR 19369 (May 7, 1984).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
