Amendment of Final Results

On February 11, 2005, the Department published the Final Results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on small diameter circular seamless carbon and alloy steel standard, line and pressure pipe (“seamless line pipe”) from Brazil. See Final Results. In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(c)(2), on February 14, 2005, both United States Steel Corporation (“petitioner”) and VMB timely filed allegations that the Department made ministerial errors in the final results. On February 22, 2005, we received comments from both the petitioner and respondent, rebutting each party's alleged ministerial errors. In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act, we have determined that certain ministerial errors were made in our Final Results margin calculations. For a detailed discussion of the ministerial error allegations, rebuttals and the Department's analysis, see Memorandum to Richard O. Weible, Director, through Abdelali Elouaradia, Program Manager, from Helen M. Kramer and Patrick S. Edwards, Case Analysts, regarding “Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Small Diameter Circular Carbon and Alloy Steel Standard, Line and Pressure Pipe from Brazil; Alleged Ministerial Errors in the Final Results,” dated March 14, 2005, which is on file in the Central Records Unit (“CRU”), room B-099 of the main Department building.

In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the final results of the antidumping duty administrative review of seamless line pipe from Brazil to correct these ministerial errors. Start Printed Page 13460
