Amendment to the Final Determination

In accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, (“the Act”), on May 22, 2006, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published its final determination of sales at less than fair value (“LTFV”). See Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Final Partial Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances: Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof from the People's Republic of China, 71 FR 29303

(May 22, 2006) (“Final Determination”). See Final Determination and corresponding Issues and Decision Memorandum, dated May 15, 2006.

Between May 23, 2006, and May 26, 2006, the following parties filed timely allegations that the Department made various clerical errors in the Final Determination. On May 23, 2006, the Diamond Sawblade Manufacturers' Coalition (“Petitioner”) filed a timely request pursuant to section 351.224(c)(2) of the Department's regulations, requesting that the Department correct alleged ministerial errors in the Final Determination in the calculation of a margin for Bosun Tools Group Co., Ltd. (“Bosun”) and Beijing Gang Yan Diamond Product Company (“BGY”) (included with Yichang HXF Circular Saw Industrial Co., Ltd (“HXF”) as a single entity, Advanced Technology & Materials Co., Ltd. (“AT&M”) (see Final Determination)). Also on May 23, 2006, AT&M filed comments on the Department's draft customs instructions. On May 26, 2006, Hebei Jikai Industrial Group Co. Ltd. (“Hebei Jikai”) filed a request that the Department correct certain clerical errors with respect to Hebei Jikai. On May 31, 2006, Petitioner filed comments rebutting Hebei Jikai's allegations.

A ministerial error is defined as an error in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other similar type of unintentional error which the Department considers ministerial. See 19 CFR 351.224(f).

After analyzing all interested party comments and rebuttals, we have determined, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), that we made ministerial errors in our calculations performed for the final determination with respect to Bosun and AT&M. However, the Department finds that the errors alleged by Hebei Jikai were not ministerial errors within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.224(f). For a detailed discussion of these ministerial errors, as well as the Department=s analysis, see Memorandum to James C. Doyle from Anya Naschak: Antidumping Duty Investigation of Diamond Sawblades from the People's Republic of China: Analysis of Ministerial Error Allegations, dated June 15, 2006 (“Ministerial Error I&D Memo”). Additionally, in the Final Determination, we determined that several companies qualified for a separate rate. The margin we calculated in the Final Determination for these companies, which is the weighted average of the mandatory respondents' rates, was 20.72 percent. Because the rates of the mandatory respondents have changed since the Final Determination, we have recalculated the rate for the separate rate applicants. The new rate is 21.43 percent. See Ministerial Error I&D Memo at Attachment IV.

In addition, AT&M requested that the Department make certain changes to the Department's draft instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”). Start Printed Page 35865AT&M requested that the Department modify the language used in the Department's customs instructions to read “on exports where Cliff (Tianjin) International, Ltd. acted as the exporter and facilitator for the AT&M entity, imports are eligible to claim the antidumping duty rate” for AT&M. See AT&M's letter to the Department dated May 23, 2006. Though this suggestion does not constitute a “ministerial” error within the meaning of section 351.224(f) of the Department's regulations, the Department will make the change as requested by AT&M to ensure that the Department's intent is clear to CBP. Thus, the Department will include language in the customs module indicating that exports where Cliff (Tianjin) International, Ltd. acted as an exporter and facilitator to AT&M, the importer is eligible to claim AT&M's antidumping duty rate.1

Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the final determination of sales at LTFV in the antidumping duty investigation of diamond sawblades from the People's Republic of China (“PRC”). The revised weighted-average dumping margins are included in the “Antidumping Duty Order” section, below. For the revisions to the calculations for all companies, see Ministerial Error I&D Memo.

Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the final determination of sales at LTFV in the antidumping duty investigation of diamond sawblades from the PRC. The revised dumping margins are as follows:
