Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Not Less Than 
Fair Value: Certain Color Television Receivers From Malaysia

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

DATES: Effective Date: May 7, 2004.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mike Strollo or Gregory Kalbaugh at 
(202) 482-0629 and (202) 482-3693, respectively, AD/CVD Enforcement, 
Office 2, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC 20230.

Amendment to Final Results

    In accordance with section 735 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), on April 16, 2004, the Department published the 
final determination in the less-than-fair-value investigation on 
certain color televisions from Malaysia. See Notice of Final 
Determination of Sales at Not Less Than Fair Value: Certain Color 
Television Receivers from Malaysia (69 FR 20592). On April 16, 2004, we 
received an allegation, timely filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(c)(2), 
from Funai Electric (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. (Funai Malaysia), the sole 
respondent, that the Department made a ministerial error in its final 
determination. We did not receive comments from the petitioners (i.e., 
Five Rivers Electronic Innovations, LLC, the International Brotherhood 
of Electrical Workers, and the Industrial Division of the 
Communications Workers of America). After analyzing Funai Malaysia's 
submission, we have determined, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224, that 
a ministerial error was made in our final margin calculation for Funai 
Malaysia. Specifically, we find that we failed to revise our surrogate 
direct and indirect selling expenses for the domestic market to use the 
company-specific data of Formosa Prosonic Industries, the same company 
from which the profit ratio was derived.
    For a detailed discussion of the ministerial error noted above, as 
well as the Department's analysis, see the memorandum to Jeffrey May 
from the team, dated April 28, 2004.
    Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending 
the final determination in the less-than-fair-value investigation on 
certain color television receivers from Malaysia. The margin for Funai 
Malaysia remains de minimis. The revised weighted-average dumping 
margin is as follows:
