SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is amending its final results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on circular welded carbon steel standard pipe and tube products (pipes and tubes) from Turkey. The period of review (POR) is May 1, 2017 through April 30, 2018. The amended final weighted-average dumping margins are listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Amended Final Results.’’ AGENCY: DATES: Applicable March 5, 2020.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Background On January 22, 2020, Commerce published the Final Results of the 2017– 2018 administrative review in the Federal Register.1 Borusan 1 See Circular Welded Carbon Steel Standard Pipe and Tube Products from Turkey: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Final Determination of No Shipments; 2017–2018, VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:20 Mar 04, 2020 Jkt 250001 Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. (Borusan), a mandatory respondent in this administrative review, timely filed a ministerial error allegation concerning the Final Results and requested, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224, that Commerce correct the alleged ministerial error.2 On January 22, 2020, Borusan filed a complaint with the U.S. Court of International Trade (CIT) challenging the Final Results. On February 3, 2020, Commerce sought leave from the CIT to address the ministerial error allegation involving the Final Results. On February 4, 2020, the CIT granted Commerce’s request. Scope of the Order The products covered by this order are welded carbon steel standard pipe and tube products with an outside diameter of 0.375 inch or more but not over 16 inches of any wall thickness, and are currently classified under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 7306.30.10.00, 7306.30.50.25, 7306.30.50.32, 7306.30.50.40, 7306.30.50.55, 7306.30.50.85, and 7306.30.50.90. Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under investigation is dispositive. These products, commonly referred to in the industry as standard pipe or tube, are produced to various ASTM specifications, most notably A– 120, A–53 or A–135. Legal Framework 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.’’ 3 With respect to final results of an administrative review, 19 CFR 351.224(e) provides that Commerce ‘‘will analyze any comments received and, if appropriate, correct any ministerial error by amending . . . the final results of review . . . .’’ Ministerial Error Allegation In its ministerial error allegation, Borusan argues that Commerce set the 85 FR 3616 (January 22, 2020) (Final Results), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. 2 See Borusan’s Letter, ‘‘Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from Turkey, Case No. A– 489–501: Borusan’s Ministerial Error Comments,’’ dated January 21, 2020 (Borusan’s Ministerial Error Comments). 3 See 19 CFR 351.224(f). PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12893 incorrect beginning window period for matching home market and U.S. sales in Commerce’s margin program.4 Accordingly, Borusan argues Commerce should correct the beginning window period date to three months preceding the earliest U.S. date of sale for merchandise entering the United States during the POR, consistent with 19 CFR 351.414(f).5 We agree with Borusan that Commerce committed an inadvertent error within the meaning of section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f) when setting the beginning window period date for U.S. sales in our margin program. Consistent with 19 CFR 351.414(f), we intended to set the beginning window period date to three months preceding the earliest U.S. date of sale for merchandise entering the United States during the POR. Amended Final Results After analyzing Borusan’s comments, we have determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f), that we made a ministerial error in the Final Results with respect to Borusan’s margin programming.6 For a detailed discussion of this ministerial error, as well as Commerce’s analysis of this error, see the Ministerial Error Memorandum. In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the Final Results of this administrative review of pipes and tubes from Turkey. As a result of correcting the ministerial error, we determined that the dumping margin calculated for Borusan and the nonselected companies 7 in these amended final results is as follows: Exporter or producer Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Borusan Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S ............. 4 See 8.48 Borusan’s Ministerial Error Comments. 5 Id. 6 See Memorandum, ‘‘2017–2018 Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Circular Welded Carbon Steel Standard Pipe and Tube Products from Turkey: Allegation of Ministerial Errors in the Final Results,’’ dated concurrently with this Federal Register notice (Ministerial Error Memorandum). 7 Consistent with the Final Results, Commerce assigns to the companies not individually examined (i.e., Kale Baglanti Teknolojileri San. ve Tic.; Noksel Selik Boru Sanayi A.S.; and Cinar Boru Profil San. ve Tic. As) the weighted average dumping margin calculated for Borusan in these amended final results, because it is the only calculated weightedaverage dumping margin that is not zero, de minimis, or determined entirely on the basis of facts available.
