SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On October 10, 2017, Commerce published the Final Results of the 
2015-2016 administrative review in the Federal Register.\1\ Wheatland 
Tube LLC (petitioner) and respondent Saha Thai Steel Pipe Public Co., 
Ltd. (Saha Thai) timely filed ministerial error allegations concerning 
the Final Results and requested, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224, that 
Commerce correct the alleged ministerial errors.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from 
Thailand: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review 
and Final Determination of No Shipments; 2015-2016, 82 FR 46961 
(October 10, 2017) (Final Results), and accompanying Memorandum, 
``Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from Thailand: 
Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review; 2015-2016,'' (Issues and Decision 
Memorandum).
    \2\ See Saha Thai Steel Pipe Public Co., Ltd.'s October 6, 2017 
Ministerial Error Correction Request; and Petitioner's October 10, 
2017 Ministerial Error Allegation.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the antidumping order are certain circular 
welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Thailand. The subject 
merchandise has an outside diameter of 0.375 inches or more, but not 
exceeding 16 inches.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ A full written description of the scope of the order is 
contained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum.
    Commerce is not making any changes to the scope of the order for 
these amended final results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ministerial Errors

    Section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 
defines ``ministerial errors'' 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.'' \4\ After analyzing the parties' comments, we have 
determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.224(f), that ministerial errors were made in our calculation of 
Saha Thai's margin for the Final Results. For a detailed discussion of 
these ministerial errors, as well as Commerce's analysis of these 
errors, see the Ministerial Error Memorandum.\5\

    In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e),
