Download as PDF khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 116 / Monday, June 17, 2019 / Notices Specifically included within the scope of these reviews are seamless pipes and redraw hollows, less than or equal to 4.5 inches (114.3 mm) in outside diameter, regardless of wall-thickness, manufacturing process (hot finished or cold-drawn), end finish (plain end, beveled end, upset end, threaded, or threaded and coupled), or surface finish. The merchandise under review is currently classifiable under items: 7304.10.10.20, 7304.10.50.20, 7304.19.10.20, 7304.19.50.20, 7304.31.30.00, 7304.31.60.50, 7304.39.00.16, 7304.39.00.20, 7304.39.00.24, 7304.39.00.28, 7304.39.00.32, 7304.51.50.05, 7304.51.50.60, 7304.59.60.00, 7304.59.80.10, 7304.59.80.15, 7304.59.80.20, and 7304.59.80.25 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS classification is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under review is dispositive. Specifications, Characteristics, and Uses: Seamless pressure pipes are intended for the conveyance of water, steam, petrochemicals, chemicals, oil products, natural gas and other liquids and gasses in industrial piping systems. They may carry these substances at elevated pressures and temperatures and may be subject to the application of external heat. Seamless carbon steel pressure pipe meeting the ASTM A–106 standard may be used in temperatures of up to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, at various American Society of Mechanical Engineers (‘‘ASME’’) code stress levels. Alloy pipes made to ASTM A–335 standard must be used if temperatures and stress levels exceed those allowed for ASTM A–106. Seamless pressure pipes sold in the United States are commonly produced to the ASTM A–106 standard. Seamless standard pipes are most commonly produced to the ASTM A–53 specification and generally are not intended for high temperature service. They are intended for the low temperature and pressure conveyance of water, steam, natural gas, air and other liquids and gasses in plumbing and heating systems, air conditioning units, automatic sprinkler systems, and other related uses. Standard pipes (depending on type and code) may carry liquids at elevated temperatures but must not exceed relevant ASME code requirements. If exceptionally low temperature uses or conditions are anticipated, standard pipe may be manufactured to ASTM A–333 or ASTM A– 334 specifications. Seamless line pipes are intended for the conveyance of oil and natural gas or other fluids in pipe lines. Seamless line pipes are produced to the API 5L specification. Seamless water well pipe (ASTM A–589) and seamless galvanized pipe for fire protection uses (ASTM A–795) are used for the conveyance of water. Seamless pipes are commonly produced and certified to meet ASTM A–106, ASTM A–53, API 5L–B, and API 5L–X42 specifications. To avoid maintaining separate production runs and separate inventories, manufacturers typically triple or quadruple certify the pipes by meeting the metallurgical requirements and performing the required tests pursuant to the respective VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:34 Jun 14, 2019 Jkt 247001 specifications. Since distributors sell the vast majority of this product, they can thereby maintain a single inventory to service all customers. The primary application of ASTM A–106 pressure pipes and triple or quadruple certified pipes is in pressure piping systems by refineries, petrochemical plants, and chemical plants. Other applications are in power generation plants (electrical-fossil fuel or nuclear), and in some oil field uses (on shore and off shore) such as for separator lines, gathering lines and metering runs. A minor application of this product is for use as oil and gas distribution lines for commercial applications. These applications constitute the majority of the market for the subject seamless pipes. However, ASTM A– 106 pipes may be used in some boiler applications. Redraw hollows are any unfinished pipe or ‘‘hollow profiles’’ of carbon or alloy steel transformed by hot rolling or cold drawing/ hydrostatic testing or other methods to enable the material to be sold under ASTM A–53, ASTM A–106, ASTM A–333, ASTM A–334, ASTM A–335, ASTM A–589, ASTM A–795, and API 5L specifications. The scope of these reviews includes all seamless pipe meeting the physical parameters described above and produced to one of the specifications listed above, regardless of application, and whether or not also certified to a non-covered specification. Standard, line, and pressure applications and the above-listed specifications are defining characteristics of the scope of these reviews. Therefore, seamless pipes meeting the physical description above, but not produced to the ASTM A–53, ASTM A–106, ASTM A– 333, ASTM A–334, ASTM A–335, ASTM A– 589, ASTM A–795, and API 5L specifications shall be covered if used in a standard, line, or pressure application. For example, there are certain other ASTM specifications of pipe which, because of overlapping characteristics, could potentially be used in ASTM A–106 applications. These specifications generally include ASTM A– 161, ASTM A–192, ASTM A–210, ASTM A– 252, ASTM A–501, ASTM A–523, ASTM A– 524, and ASTM A–618. When such pipes are used in a standard, line, or pressure pipe application, such products are covered by the scope of these reviews. Specifically excluded from the scope of these reviews are boiler tubing and mechanical tubing, if such products are not produced to ASTM A–53, ASTM A–106, ASTM A–333, ASTM A–334, ASTM A–335, ASTM A–589, ASTM A–795, and API 5L specifications and are not used in standard, line, or pressure pipe applications. In addition, finished and unfinished OCTG are excluded from the scope of these reviews, if covered by the scope of another antidumping duty order from the same country. If not covered by such an OCTG order, finished and unfinished OCTG are included in this scope when used in standard, line, or pressure applications. With regard to the excluded products listed above, the Department will not instruct Customs to require end-use certification until such time as petitioner or other interested parties provide to the Department a PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 28009 reasonable basis to believe or suspect that the products are being used in a covered application. If such information is provided, we will require end-use certification only for the product(s) (or specification(s)) for which evidence is provided that such products are being used in covered applications as described above. For example, if, based on evidence provided by petitioner, the Department finds a reasonable basis to believe or suspect that seamless pipe produced to the A–161 specification is being used in a standard, line or pressure application, we will require end-use certifications for imports of that specification. Normally we will require only the importer of record to certify to the end use of the imported merchandise. If it later proves necessary for adequate implementation, we may also require producers who export such products to the United States to provide such certification on invoices accompanying shipments to the United States. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the merchandise subject to this scope is dispositive.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is amending the final results of the countervailing duty administrative review of certain passenger vehicle and light truck tires (passenger tires) from the People’s Republic of China (China) to correct a ministerial error. The period of review (POR) is January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016. DATES: Applicable June 17, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background In accordance with section 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), on April 25, 2019, Commerce published its final results of the countervailing duty administrative review of passenger tires from China.1 On May 6, 2019, Cooper (Kunshan) Tire Co., Ltd. (Cooper) submitted a request to correct a clerical error in the Final Results.2 No other 1 See Countervailing Duty Order on Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review; 2016, 84 FR 17382 (April 25, 2019) (Final Results). 2 See Cooper’s Letter, ‘‘Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from the People’s Republic of China/Allegation of A Ministerial Error,’’ dated May 6, 2019 (Cooper Ministerial Comments). PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Section 751(h) of 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. As discussed in the Amended Final Decision Memorandum, Commerce finds that the error alleged by Cooper constitutes a ministerial error within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.224(f).4 Specifically, Commerce made an error in the calculation of the benefit to Cooper from the provision of synthetic rubber and butadiene for less than adequate remuneration. In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the Final Results to correct the ministerial error. Specifically, we are amending the net subsidy rates for Cooper and the non-selected companies under review.5 The revised net subsidy rates are provided below. Amended Final Results As a result of correcting the ministerial error, we determine that the countervailable subsidy rates for the producers/exporters under review are as follows: Company Cooper (Kunshan) Tire Co., Ltd. (Cooper) .................................. Qingdao Sentury Tire Co. Ltd. (Sentury) ................................. Subsidy rate (percent) 15.47 15.75 3 See Memorandum ‘‘Administrative Review of the Countervailing Duty Order on Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from the People’s Republic of China: Decision Memorandum for Amended Final Results,’’ dated concurrently and herby adopted by this notice (Amended Final Decision Memorandum) for a full description of the scope of the order. 4 Id. at 5. 5 Id. at 5–6. Because we relied on Cooper’s and Qingdao Sentury Tire Co. Ltd.’s subsidy rates to calculate the rate for non-selected companies under review, we are revising the rate for non-selected companies under review in these amended final results. See Final Results at Appendix II for a list of the non-selected companies under review. E:\FR\FM\17JNN1.SGM 17JNN1

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine the 
following weighted-average dumping margin for Bongsan for the period 
October 14, 2016, through March 31, 2018.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                                              (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bongsan Co., Ltd...........................................        0.00
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rate

    Upon issuance of the final results of this review, Commerce shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. 
If the weighted-average dumping margin for Bongsan is not zero or de 
minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), then we will calculate importer-
specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on the 
ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for each importer's 
examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\5\ If the weighted-average 
dumping margin for Bongsan is zero or de minimis in the final results, 
or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis in the 
final results, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate 
entries without regard to antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ In these preliminary results, Commerce applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification for 
Reviews).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Bongsan for which it did not know that its merchandise was destined for 
the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries 
at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction, consistent with the Final 
Modification for Reviews.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ Id. at 8102.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon

Notification to Importers

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.

sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).
