SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is amending its final results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty (AD) order on welded line pipe from the Republic of Korea to correct a ministerial error in the calculation of the weighted-average dumping margin of SeAH Steel Corporation (SeAH). Correction of the error results in revised margins for SeAH and the companies not selected for individual examination. Finally, in correcting this error, we also discovered an error in the assessment rates calculated for Hyundai Steel Company (Hyundai Steel), which did not affect Hyundai Steel’s final dumping margin. The amended final dumping margins are listed below in the section entitled, ‘‘Amended Final Results.’’ DATES: Applicable August 10, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES On July 18, 2018, Commerce published the Final Results of the 2015– 2016 administrative review in the Federal Register.1 Subsequently, SeAH Steel Corporation (SeAH), one of two companies selected for individual examination, alleged that Commerce made a ministerial error related to the application of weighted-average further manufacturing costs to the appropriate U.S. sales.2 On July 23, 2018, Maverick Tube Corporation (Maverick) submitted 1 See Welded Line Pipe from the Republic of Korea: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2015–2016, 83 FR 33919 (July 18, 2018) (Final Results), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum (IDM). 2 See SeAH’s Letter, ‘‘Administrative Review of the Antidumping Order on Welded Line Pipe from Korea—Comments on Ministerial Error in Final Determination,’’ dated July 18, 2018 (SeAH Ministerial Error Allegation). VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:03 Aug 09, 2018 Jkt 244001 Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is welded line pipe.4 The product is currently classified under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers: 7305.11.1030, 7305.11.1060, 7305.11.5000, 7305.12.1030, 7305.12.1060, 7305.12.5000, 7305.19.1030, 7305.19.5000, 7306.19.1010, 7306.19.1050, 7306.19.5110, and 7306.19.5150. Although the HTSUS numbers are provided for convenience and for customs purposes, the written product description remains dispositive. Ministerial Error 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.’’ 5 SeAH alleges that we made a ministerial error in our calculation of its margin by incorrectly assigning the control number (CONNUM)-specific weighted-average further manufacturing costs to all of SeAH’s U.S. sales of that CONNUM, rather than only those sales of that CONNUM that underwent further processing in the United States.6 After analyzing the comments of interested parties, we find that we made a ministerial error in the Final Results, within the meaning of section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f), with respect to SeAH’s further manufacturing costs for its U.S. sales.7 Correction of this error in SeAH’s final margin program results in a revised weightedaverage dumping margin for the company. Furthermore, we are revising the review-specific average rate applicable to the 22 companies not selected for individual examination in this administrative review.

Finally, in correcting this error, we also discovered an error in the assessment rates calculated for Hyundai Steel. This error did not affect the final dumping margin calculated for Hyundai Steel.8 Amended Final Results of the Review As a result of correcting the ministerial error decribed above, we determine that the weighted-average dumping margins are as follows: Exporter/producer Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Hyundai Steel Company/Hyundai HYSCO 9 ................................. SeAH Steel Corporation 11 ......... 18.77 10 14.39 Review-Specific Average Rate Applicable to the Following Companies: 12 Exporter/producer AJU BESTEEL CO., Ltd .............

Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) 16.58 16.58 16.58 16.58 16.58 8 See ‘‘Calculations for Hyundai Steel Company for the Amended Final Results,’’ dated concurrently with this notice. 9 As discussed in Welded Line Pipe from the Republic of Korea: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 80 FR 61366 (October 13, 2015), and accompanying IDM at 1, Hyundai HYSCO merged with Hyundai Steel subsequent to the period of investigation and Hyundai HYSCO no longer exists. Accordingly, our examination of Hyundai Steel includes entries made by Hyundai HYSCO prior to the date of the merger. 10 This is the rate we calculated for Hyundai Steel in the Final Results. 11 We incorrectly referred to SeAH as ‘‘SeAH Steel Company’’ in our Final Results. However, SeAH’s correct full name is SeAH Steel Corporation. 12 This rate is based on the simple average margin for those companies selected for individual review. Because we cannot apply our normal methodology of calculating a weighted-average margin due to requests to protect business proprietary information, we find this rate to be the best proxy of the actual weighted-average margin determined for the mandatory respondents.

Welded Line Pipe From the Republic of Korea: Amended Final 
Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2015-2016

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is amending its final 
results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty (AD) order 
on welded line pipe from the Republic of Korea to correct a ministerial 
error in the calculation of the weighted-average dumping margin of SeAH 
Steel Corporation (SeAH). Correction of the error results in revised 
margins for SeAH and the companies not selected for individual 
examination. Finally, in correcting this error, we also discovered an 
error in the assessment rates calculated for Hyundai Steel Company 
(Hyundai Steel), which did not affect Hyundai Steel's final dumping 
margin. The amended final dumping margins are listed below in the 
section entitled, ``Amended Final Results.''

DATES: Applicable August 10, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 18, 2018, Commerce published the Final Results of the 2015-
2016 administrative review in the Federal Register.\1\ Subsequently, 
SeAH Steel Corporation (SeAH), one of two companies selected for 
individual examination, alleged that Commerce made a ministerial error 
related to the application of weighted-average further manufacturing 
costs to the appropriate U.S. sales.\2\ On July 23, 2018, Maverick Tube 
Corporation (Maverick) submitted comments in response to SeAH's 
ministerial error allegation.\3\

Decision Memorandum (IDM).

Antidumping Order on Welded Line Pipe from Korea--Comments on 
Ministerial Error in Final Determination,'' dated July 18, 2018

of Korea: Maverick's Reply to SeAH's Ministerial Error Comments,'' 
dated July 23, 2018.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is welded line pipe.\4\ The 
product is currently classified under the following Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers: 7305.11.1030, 
7305.11.1060, 7305.11.5000, 7305.12.1030, 7305.12.1060, 7305.12.5000, 
7305.19.1030, 7305.19.5000, 7306.19.1010, 7306.19.1050, 7306.19.5110, 
and 7306.19.5150. Although the HTSUS numbers are provided for 
convenience and for customs purposes, the written product description 
remains dispositive.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ For a complete description of the scope of the order, see 
Memorandum, ``Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of the 
2015-2016 Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on 
Welded Line Pipe from Korea,'' dated January 2, 2018.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ministerial Error

    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.'' \5\ SeAH alleges that we made a ministerial error in our 
calculation of its margin by incorrectly assigning the control number 
(CONNUM)-specific weighted-average further manufacturing costs to all 
of SeAH's U.S. sales of that CONNUM, rather than only those sales of 
that CONNUM that underwent further processing in the United States.\6\ 
After analyzing the comments of interested parties, we find that we 
made a ministerial error in the Final Results, within the meaning of 
section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f), with respect to SeAH's 
further manufacturing costs for its U.S. sales.\7\ Correction of this 
error in SeAH's final margin program results in a revised weighted-
average dumping margin for the company. Furthermore, we are revising 
the review-specific average rate applicable to the 22 companies not 
selected for individual examination in this administrative review. For 
a detailed discussion and analysis of the ministerial error, see the 
Ministerial Error Memorandum.

Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order--Ministerial 
Error Allegation,'' dated concurrently with this notice (Ministerial 
Error Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Finally, in correcting this error, we also discovered an error in 
the assessment rates calculated for Hyundai Steel. This error did not 
affect the final dumping margin calculated for Hyundai Steel.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See ``Calculations for Hyundai Steel Company for the Amended 
Final Results,'' dated concurrently with this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Amended Final Results of the Review

    As a result of correcting the ministerial error decribed above, we 
determine that the weighted-average dumping margins are as follows:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ As discussed in Welded Line Pipe from the Republic of Korea: 
Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 80 FR 61366 
(October 13, 2015), and accompanying IDM at 1, Hyundai HYSCO merged 
with Hyundai Steel subsequent to the period of investigation and 
Hyundai HYSCO no longer exists. Accordingly, our examination of 
Hyundai Steel includes entries made by Hyundai HYSCO prior to the 
date of the merger.
    \10\ This is the rate we calculated for Hyundai Steel in the 
Final Results.
    \11\ We incorrectly referred to SeAH as ``SeAH Steel Company'' 
in our Final Results. However, SeAH's correct full name is SeAH 
Steel Corporation.

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed within five days

proceeding, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the amended final 
results of this review.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), where Hyundai Steel and SeAH 
reported the entered value of their U.S. sales, we calculated importer-
specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the 
total amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales to the total 
entered value of the sales for which entered value was reported. Where 
Hyundai Steel did not report entered value, we calculated the entered 
value in order to calculate the assessment rate. Where either the 
respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis 
within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific 
rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
will assign an assessment rate based on the average \13\ of the cash 
deposit rates calculated for Hyundai Steel and SeAH. The amended final 
results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of 
antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the amended 
final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated 
duties, where applicable.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ This rate was calculated as discussed in footnote 11, 
above.
    \14\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP for Hyundai 
Steel, SeAH, and the companies subject to the review-specific average 
rate 15 days after publication of these amended final results of this 
administrative review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective 
retroactively for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after July 18, 2018, 
the date of publication date of the Final Results, as provided by 
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for each 
specific company listed above will be that established in the final 
results of this review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent 
and, therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), 
in which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously 
investigated companies not participating in this review, the cash

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 Order

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern 
business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. 
Timely written notification of return/destruction of APO materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to 
comply with the regulations and the 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) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.224(e).

    Dated: August 6, 2018.
