SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On August 21, 2012, the U.S. Trade Representative instructed the Department to implement its determinations under section 129 of the URAA regarding the antidumping duty investigation on CWP from the PRC, which renders them not inconsistent with the World Trade Organization (“WTO”) dispute settlement findings inUnited States—Definitive Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Duties on Certain Products from China,WT/DS379/AB/R (March 11, 2011) (“DS 379”). The Department issued its final determinations in these section 129 proceedings on July 31, 2012.2 OnAugust 30, 2012, the Department published its notice of implementation of determinations under section 129 of the URAA in the antidumping duty investigation on CWP from the PRC.3

Steel Pipe from the People's Republic of China, dated July 31, 2012.

Subsequent to publication, we identified a clerical error inImplementation of Section 129 Determinationsas published in theFederal Register. One of the CWP exporter/producer chain rates was inadvertently omitted from the chart under the section entitled, “Final Determinations: Recalculated Antidumping Duty Cash Deposit Rates.” The Department is now correcting this inadvertent error. The names of the exporter and producer are listed below:

Final Determinations: Recalculated Antidumping Duty Cash Deposit Rates Amended Antidumping Duty Cash Deposit Rates (Percent) Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe From the PRC Exporter Producer Weighted-Average Dumping Margin4 Revised Cash Deposit Rate Shanghai Metals & Minerals Import & Export Corp. Huludao Steel Pipe Industrial Co., Ltd. 69.20 45.35 4 See Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Affirmative Final Determination of Critical Circumstances: Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe from the People's Republic of China,73 FR 31970, 31973 (June 5, 2008).

All recalculated countervailing duty rates and antidumping duty cash deposit rates as published inImplementation of Section 129 Determinationsremain unchanged.

Implementation of the Revised Cash Deposit Requirements

With respect to this proceeding, the cash deposit rate for the above-named exporter/producer combination has not been superseded by intervening administrative reviews. Therefore, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require a cash deposit for estimated antidumping duties at the appropriate rate for the exporter/producer combination specified above, for entries of subject merchandise, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, on or after August 21, 2012.

This correction of the notice of implementation of this section 129 determination is published in accordance with section 129(c)(2)(A) of the URAA.

Dated: October 19, 2012. Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
