Background

On July 13, 2005, the Department of Commerce published in the Federal Register the final results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel wire rod (SSWR) from India. See Stainless Steel Wire Rod From India: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Determination to Revoke Order in Part, 70 FR 40318 (July 13, 2005).

On July 19, 2005, we received a timely ministerial-error allegation from Carpenter Technology Corporation (the petitioner) with respect to Isibars Limited (Isibars). Specifically, the petitioner argued that, in our margin calculation, we did not distinguish sales of prime merchandise from sales of secondary merchandise for matching purposes and, as a result, incorrectly matched prime merchandise sold in the United States with secondary merchandise sold in India. Isibars did not comment on this issue.

It is our practice to distinguish between prime and secondary merchandise. See Certain Cold-Rolled and Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products From Korea: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 65 FR 13359 (March 13, 2000) and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 19. See also Certain Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products From Canada: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 69 FR 2566 (January 16, 2004) and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 8. Therefore, we agree with the petitioner's allegation and have made the appropriate changes to our calculation. See “Amended Final Analysis Memorandum of Isibars Limited for Stainless Steel Wire Rod from India Adm. Rev. 12/1/02 - 11/30/03” dated July 29, 2005.

Amended Final Results of Review

As a result of the correction of the ministerial error, the weighted-average margin for Isibars for the period December 1, 2002, through November 30, 2003, has changed from 27.20 percent to 30.10 percent.
