SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 1, 2020, Commerce published the Final Results of the 2017– 2018 administrative review of CWP from the UAE in the Federal Register.1 On November 30, 2020, Universal Tube and Plastic Industries, Ltd., KHK Scaffolding and Framework LLC, and THL Pipe and Tube Industries LLC (collectively, Universal), one of two companies selected for individual examination in this administrative review, alleged the existence of a ministerial error in Commerce’s Final Results.2 Legal Framework International Trade Administration [A–520–807] Circular Welded Carbon-Quality Steel Pipe From the United Arab Emirates: Amended Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2017–2018 Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce. SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is amending the final results of the administrative review of AGENCY: A ministerial error, as defined in section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), includes ‘‘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 administrative reviews, 19 CFR 351.224(e) provides that Commerce ‘‘will analyze any comments received and, if appropriate, correct any 289 ministerial error by amending . . . the final results of review.’’ Ministerial Error Commerce committed an inadvertent error within the meaning of section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f) by incorrectly calculating Universal’s home market commissions. Accordingly, we determine, 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. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the Final Results to correct this error. This correction results in a change to Universal’s weightedaverage dumping margin and also changes the rate calculated for the nonindividually-examined companies. For a detailed discussion of the ministerial error allegation, as well as Commerce’s analysis, see Ministerial Error Memorandum.4 Correction Subsequent to the publication of the notice in the Federal Register, we identified an inadvertent error in the Final Results in addition to the one alleged by Universal. Specifically, Commerce inadvertently referenced the review-specific rate of 3.14 percent as the all-others rate in the cash deposit section of the notice. However, the allothers rate, established in the investigation, is 5.95 percent.5 The corrected cash deposit section of the notice is below.

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), because Conares Metal Supply Ltd and Universal reported the entered value of their U.S. sales, we calculated importerspecific 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 an importerspecific rate is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.

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.9 Commerce’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ practice will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not know that the merchandise they sold to the intermediary (e.g., a reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United States. In such instances, 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. We intend to issue liquidation instructions for Universal and the companies covered by the non-reviewed companies’ rate to CBP 15 days after publication of these amended final results of this administrative review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after December 1, 2020, the date of publication date of the Final Results of this administrative review, 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 amended final results; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies, including those for which Commerce may have determined had no shipments during the POR, the cash 9 See PO 00000 section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: Background Each year during the anniversary month of the publication of an antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended investigation, an interested party, as defined in section 771(9) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), may request, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213, that the Department of Commerce (Commerce) conduct an administrative review of that antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended investigation. All deadlines for the submission of comments or actions by Commerce discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting date. Respondent Selection In the event Commerce limits the number of respondents for individual VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:09 Jan 04, 2021 Jkt 253001 examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to requests made for the orders identified below, Commerce intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data for U.S. imports during the period of review. We intend to release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (APO) to all parties having an APO within five days of publication of the initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 21 days of publication of the initiation Federal Register notice. Therefore, we encourage all parties interested in commenting on respondent selection to submit their APO applications on the date of publication of the initiation notice, or as soon thereafter as possible. Commerce invites comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within five days of placement of the CBP data on the record of the review. In the event Commerce decides it is necessary to limit individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act: In general, Commerce finds that determinations concerning whether particular companies should be ‘‘collapsed’’ (i.e., treated as a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates) require a substantial amount of detailed information and analysis, which often require follow-up questions and analysis. Accordingly, Commerce will not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent selection phase of a review and will not collapse companies at the respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this antidumping proceeding (i.e., investigation, administrative review, new shipper review or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to a review, if Commerce determined, or continued to treat, that company as collapsed with others, Commerce will assume that such companies continue to operate in the same manner and will collapse them for respondent selection purposes. Otherwise, Commerce will not collapse companies for purposes of respondent selection. Parties are requested to (a) identify which companies subject to review previously were collapsed, and (b) provide a citation to the proceeding in which they were collapsed. Further, if companies are requested to complete a Quantity and Value Questionnaire for purposes of respondent selection, in general each company must report volume and value data separately for itself. Parties should not include data PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 291 for any other party, even if they believe they should be treated as a single entity with that other party. If a company was collapsed with another company or companies in the most recently completed segment of a proceeding where Commerce considered collapsing that entity, complete quantity and value data for that collapsed entity must be submitted. Deadline for Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), a party that requests a review may withdraw that request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The regulation provides that Commerce may extend this time if it is reasonable to do so. Determinations by Commerce to extend the 90-day deadline will be made on a case-by-case basis. Deadline for Particular Market Situation Allegation Section 504 of the Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015 amended the Act by adding the concept of particular market situation (PMS) for purposes of constructed value under section 773(e) of the Act.1 Section 773(e) of the Act states that ‘‘if a particular market situation exists such that the cost of materials and fabrication or other processing of any kind does not accurately reflect the cost of production in the ordinary course of trade, the administering authority may use another calculation methodology under this subtitle or any other calculation methodology.’’ When an interested party submits a PMS allegation pursuant to section 773(e) of the Act, Commerce will respond to such a submission consistent with 19 CFR 351.301(c)(2)(v). If Commerce finds that a PMS exists under section 773(e) of the Act, then it will modify its dumping calculations appropriately. Neither section 773(e) of the Act nor 19 CFR 351.301(c)(2)(v) set a deadline for the submission of PMS allegations and supporting factual information. However, in order to administer section 773(e) of the Act, Commerce must receive PMS allegations and supporting factual information with enough time to consider the submission. Thus, should an interested party wish to submit a PMS allegation and supporting new factual information pursuant to section 773(e) of the Act, it must do so no later than 20 days after submission of initial Section D responses. 1 See Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015, Public Law 114–27, 129 Stat. 362 (2015).

Circular Welded Carbon-Quality Steel Pipe From the United Arab 
Emirates: Amended Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review; 2017-2018

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is amending the final 
results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty (AD) order 
on circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe (CWP) from the United Arab 
Emirates (UAE) to correct a ministerial error.

DATES: Applicable January 5, 2021.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Benjamin Luberda, AD/CVD Operations, 
Office II, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue 
NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-2185.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 1, 2020, Commerce published the Final Results of the 
2017-2018 administrative review of CWP from the UAE in the Federal 
Register.\1\ On November 30, 2020, Universal Tube and Plastic 
Industries, Ltd., KHK Scaffolding and Framework LLC, and THL Pipe and 
Tube Industries LLC (collectively, Universal), one of two companies 
selected for individual examination in this administrative review, 
alleged the existence of a ministerial error in Commerce's Final 
Results.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Circular Welded Carbon-Quality Steel Pipe from the 
United Arab Emirates: Final Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review; 2017-2018, 85 FR 77159 (December 1, 2020) 
(Final Results), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum.
    \2\ See Universal's Letter, ``Circular Welded Carbon-Quality 
Steel Pipe from the United Arab Emirates--Ministerial Error 
Comments,'' dated November 30, 2020.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Legal Framework

    A ministerial error, as defined in section 751(h) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (the Act), includes ``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 administrative 
reviews, 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.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See 19 CFR 351.224(f).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ministerial Error

    Commerce committed an inadvertent error within the meaning of 
section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f) by incorrectly 
calculating Universal's home market commissions. Accordingly, we 
determine, 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. 
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the Final Results to 
correct this error. This correction results in a change to Universal's 
weighted-average dumping margin and also changes the rate calculated 
for the non-individually-examined companies. For a detailed discussion 
of the ministerial error allegation, as well as Commerce's analysis, 
see Ministerial Error Memorandum.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Memorandum, ``Less-Than-Fair-Value Administrative Review 
of Circular Welded Carbon-Quality Steel Pipe from the United Arab 
Emirates: Allegation of Ministerial Errors in the Final 
Determination,'' dated concurrently with this notice (Ministerial 
Error Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Correction

    Subsequent to the publication of the notice in the Federal 
Register, we identified an inadvertent error in the Final Results in 
addition to the one alleged by Universal. Specifically, Commerce 
inadvertently referenced the review-specific rate of 3.14 percent as 
the all-others rate in the cash deposit section of the notice. However, 
the all-others rate, established in the investigation, is 5.95 
percent.\5\ The corrected cash deposit section of the notice is below.

    \6\ This rate is based on the simple average of the margins 
calculated 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. See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from France, et 
al.: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, Final 
Results of Changed-Circumstances Review, and Revocation of an Order 
in Part, 75 FR 53661, 53663 (September 1, 2010).
    \7\ We collapsed Ajmal Steel Tubes and Pipes Ind. L.L.C. and 
Noble Steel Industries L.L.C. together in the final results of the 
2016-2017 administrative review. See Circular Welded Carbon-Quality 
Steel Pipe from the United Arab Emirates: Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2016-2017, 84 FR 44845 
(August 27, 2019).
    \8\ This rate was calculated as discussed in a n.6, supra.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed for these amended 
final results in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Antidumping Duty Assessment

    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), because Conares Metal Supply Ltd 
and Universal 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 an importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis 
within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), 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 \8\ of the cash 
deposit rates calculated for Conares Metal Supply Ltd and Universal. 
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.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice will apply to entries 
of subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in 
these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not 
know that the merchandise they sold to the intermediary (e.g., a 
reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United 
States. In such instances, 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.
    We intend to issue liquidation instructions for Universal and the 
companies covered by the non-reviewed companies' rate to CBP 15 days 
after publication of these amended final results of this administrative 
review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after December 1, 2020, the date of 
publication date of the Final Results of this administrative review, 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 
amended final results; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated 
companies, including those for which Commerce may have determined had 
no shipments during the POR, the cash deposit will continue to be the 
company-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment 
of this proceeding in which the company participated; (3) if the 
exporter is not a firm covered in this or an earlier review, or the 
original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the 
manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for 
the most recently completed segment of this proceeding for the 
manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) if neither the exporter nor 
the manufacturer is a firm covered in this or any previously completed 
segment of this proceeding, then the cash deposit rate will be the all-
others rate of 5.95 percent established in the LTFV investigation.\10\ 
These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

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 doubled 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

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.
