SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On May 20, 2019, Commerce published its Preliminary Results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on circular welded carbon quality steel pipe from the People’s Republic of China (China) for 122 companies covering the July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018 POR.1 Although invited to do so, interested parties did not comment on our Preliminary Results. Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is 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). The pipe products that are the subject of the order are currently classifiable in Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (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 HTSUS classification, is dispositive of whether merchandise imported into the United States falls within the scope of the order.2 Analysis As noted above, no parties commented on the Preliminary Results.

Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity, we are not conducting a review of the China-wide entity,4 and thus, there is no change to its antidumping duty rate.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 20, 2019, Commerce published its Preliminary Results of the 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on circular welded 
carbon quality steel pipe from the People's Republic of China (China) 
for 122 companies covering the July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018 
POR.\1\ Although invited to do so, interested parties did not comment 
on our Preliminary Results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe from the 
People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review and Partial Rescission; 2017-2018, 84 FR 22817 
(May 20, 2019) (Preliminary Results).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is 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).
    The pipe products that are the subject of the order are currently 
classifiable in Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) 
statistical reporting numbers 7306.30.10.00, 7306.30.50.25,

Analysis

    As noted above, no parties commented on the Preliminary Results. 
Therefore, we are adopting the decisions in the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum for these final results of review. In the Preliminary 
Results, Commerce determined that all 122 companies under review did 
not establish their eligibility for a separate rate and are part of the 
China-wide entity.\3\ For these final results of review, we have 
continued to treat the 122 companies under review as part of the China-
wide entity. Because no party requested a review of the China-wide 
entity, we are not conducting a review of the China-wide entity,\4\ and 
thus, there is no change to its antidumping duty rate. The existing 
antidumping duty rate for the China-wide entity is 85.55 percent.\5\
