SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 22, 2008, Commerce published the AD and CVD orders on CWP from China.1 On November 1, 2018, Commerce initiated 2 and the ITC instituted 3 five-year (‘‘sunset’’) reviews of the AD and CVD orders on CWP from China, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). As a result of its reviews, Commerce determined, pursuant to sections 751(c)(1) and 752(b) and (c) of the Act, that revocation of the CVD Order on CWP from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of countervailable subsidies and notified the ITC of the magnitude of the subsidy rates likely to prevail were the order revoked,4 and Commerce determined that revocation of the AD Order on CWP from China would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins of dumping likely to prevail were the order revoked.5 jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES 1 See Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Amended Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination and Notice of Countervailing Duty Order, 73 FR 42545 (July 22, 2008) (CVD Order); see also Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe from the People’s Republic of China, 73 FR 42547 (July 22, 2008) (AD Order) (collectively, Orders). 2 See Initiation of Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews, 83 FR 54915 (November 1, 2018) (Initiation). 3 See Circular Welded Carbon-Quality Steel Pipe from China; Institution of Five-Year Reviews, 83 FR 54936 (November 1, 2018). 4 See Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of the Expedited Second Sunset Review of the Countervailing Duty Order, 84 FR 11050 (March 25, 2019), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. 5 See Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of the Expedited Second Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order, 84 FR 15584 (April 16, 2019) and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:47 Jun 25, 2019 Jkt 247001 On June 19, 2019, the ITC published its determinations, pursuant to sections 751(c) and 752(a) of the Act, that revocation of the Orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.6 Scope of the Orders The scope of these orders covers certain welded carbon quality steel pipes and tubes, of circular crosssection, and with an outside diameter of 0.372 inches (9.45 mm) or more, but not more than 16 inches (406.4 mm), whether or not stenciled, regardless of wall thickness, surface finish (e.g., black, galvanized, or painted), end finish (e.g., plain end, beveled end, grooved, threaded, or threaded and coupled), or industry specification (e.g., ASTM, proprietary, or other), generally known as standard pipe and structural pipe (they may also be referred to as circular, structural, or mechanical tubing). Specifically, the term ‘‘carbon quality’’ includes products in which (a) iron predominates, by weight, over each of the other contained elements; (b) the carbon content is 2 percent or less, by weight; and (c) none of the elements listed below exceeds the quantity, by weight, as indicated: (i) 1.80 percent of manganese; (ii) 2.25 percent of silicon; (iii) 1.00 percent of copper; (iv) 0.50 percent of aluminum; (v) 1.25 percent of chromium; (vi) 0.30 percent of cobalt; (vii) 0.40 percent of lead; (viii) 1.25 percent of nickel; (ix) 0.30 percent of tungsten; (x) 0.15 percent of molybdenum; (xi) 0.10 percent of niobium; (xii) 0.41 percent of titanium; (xiii) 0.15 percent of vanadium; or (xiv) 0.15 percent of zirconium. Standard pipe is made primarily to American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) specifications, but can be made to other specifications. Standard pipe is made primarily to ASTM specifications A–53, A–135, and A–795. Structural pipe is made primarily to ASTM specifications A–252 and A–500. Standard and structural pipe may also be produced to proprietary specifications rather than to industry specifications. This is often the case, for example, with fence tubing. 6 See Circular Welded Carbon-Quality Steel Pipe from China (Inv.

(The term ‘‘painted’’ does not include coatings to inhibit rust in transit, such as varnish, but includes coatings such as polyester.) The scope of these orders does not include: (a) Pipe suitable for use in boilers, superheaters, heat exchangers, condensers, refining furnaces and feedwater heaters, whether or not cold drawn; (b) mechanical tubing, whether or not cold-drawn; (c) finished electrical conduit; (d) finished scaffolding; (e) tube and pipe hollows for redrawing; (f) oil country tubular goods produced to API specifications; and (g) line pipe produced to only API specifications. The pipe products that are the subject of these orders are currently classifiable in HTSUS statistical reporting numbers 7306.30.10.00, 7306.30.50.25, 7306.30.50.32, 7306.30.50.40, 7306.30.50.55, 7306.30.50.85, 7306.30.50.90, 7306.50.10.00, 7306.50.50.50, 7306.50.50.70, 7306.19.10.10, 7306.19.10.50, 7306.19.51.10, and 7306.19.51.50. However, the product description, and not the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) classification, is dispositive of whether merchandise imported into the United States falls within the scope of the orders. Continuation of the Orders on CWP From China As a result of the determinations by Commerce and the ITC that revocation of the Orders would likely lead to a continuation or a recurrence of dumping, countervailable subsidies, and of material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(a), Commerce hereby orders the continuation of the Orders. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will continue to collect AD and CVD cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise. The effective date of the continuation of the Orders will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of continuation.

Scope of the Orders

    The scope of these orders covers certain welded carbon quality 
steel pipes and tubes, of circular cross-section, and with an outside 
diameter of 0.372 inches (9.45 mm) or more, but not more than 16 inches 
(406.4 mm), whether or not stenciled, regardless of wall thickness, 
surface finish (e.g., black, galvanized, or painted), end finish (e.g., 
plain end, beveled end, grooved, threaded, or threaded and coupled), or 
industry specification (e.g., ASTM, proprietary, or other), generally 
known as standard pipe and structural pipe (they may also be referred 
to as circular, structural, or mechanical tubing).
    Specifically, the term ``carbon quality'' includes products in 
which (a) iron predominates, by weight, over each of the other 
contained elements; (b) the carbon content is 2 percent or less, by 
weight; and (c) none of the elements listed below exceeds the quantity, 
by weight, as indicated:
    (i) 1.80 percent of manganese;
    (ii) 2.25 percent of silicon;
    (iii) 1.00 percent of copper;
    (iv) 0.50 percent of aluminum;
    (v) 1.25 percent of chromium;
    (vi) 0.30 percent of cobalt;
    (vii) 0.40 percent of lead;
    (viii) 1.25 percent of nickel;
    (ix) 0.30 percent of tungsten;
    (x) 0.15 percent of molybdenum;
    (xi) 0.10 percent of niobium;
    (xii) 0.41 percent of titanium;
    (xiii) 0.15 percent of vanadium; or
    (xiv) 0.15 percent of zirconium.
    Standard pipe is made primarily to American Society for Testing and 
Materials (ASTM) specifications, but can be made to other 
specifications. Standard pipe is made primarily to ASTM specifications 
A-53, A-135, and A-795. Structural pipe is made primarily to ASTM 
specifications A-252 and A-500. Standard and structural pipe may also 
be produced to proprietary specifications rather than to industry 
specifications. This is often the case, for example, with fence tubing. 
Pipe multiple-stenciled to a standard and/or structural specification 
and to any other specification, such as the American Petroleum 
Institute (API) API-5L specification, is also covered by the scope of 
these orders when it meets the physical description set forth above and 
also has one or more of the following characteristics: Is 32 feet in 
length or less; is less than 2.0 inches (50 mm) in outside diameter; 
has a galvanized and/or painted surface finish; or has a threaded and/
or coupled end finish. (The term ``painted'' does not include coatings 
to inhibit rust in transit, such as varnish, but includes coatings such 
as polyester.)
    The scope of these orders does not include: (a) Pipe suitable for 
use in boilers, superheaters, heat exchangers, condensers, refining 
furnaces and feedwater heaters, whether or not cold drawn; (b) 
mechanical tubing, whether or not cold-drawn; (c) finished electrical

Continuation of the Orders on CWP From China

    As a result of the determinations by Commerce and the ITC that 
revocation of the Orders would likely lead to a continuation or a 
recurrence of dumping, countervailable subsidies, and of material 
injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to section 
751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(a), Commerce hereby orders the 
continuation of the Orders. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
will continue to collect AD and CVD cash deposits at the rates in 
effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise. The 
effective date of the continuation of the Orders will be the date of 
publication in the Federal Register of this notice of continuation. 
Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(c)(2), 
Commerce
