In accordance with section 351.213(b) of the regulations, an interested party as defined by section 771(9) of the Act, may request in writing that the Secretary conduct an administrative review. For both antidumping and countervailing duty reviews, the interested party must specify the individual producers or exporters covered by an antidumping finding or an antidumping or countervailing duty order or suspension agreement for which it is requesting a review, and the requesting party must state why it desires the Secretary to review those particular producers or exporters. If the interested party intends for the Secretary to review sales of merchandise by an exporter (or a producer if that producer also exports merchandise from other suppliers) which were produced in more than one country of origin and each country of origin is subject to a separate order, then the interested party must state specifically, on an order-byorder basis, which exporter(s) the request is intended to cover. As explained in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 69 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003), the Department has clarified its practice with respect to the collection of final antidumping duties on imports of merchandise where intermediate firms are involved. The public should be aware of this clarification in determining whether to request an administrative review of merchandise subject to antidumping findings and orders. See also the Import Administration Web site at http:// www.ia.ita.doc.gov. Six copies of the request should be submitted to the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Room 1870, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street & Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On August 19, 1993, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published an antidumping duty order on certain corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products from Japan. See Antidumping Duty Orders: Certain Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products From Japan, 58 FR 44163 (August 19, 1993). On October 26, 2004, Taiho requested that the Department revoke the antidumping duty order on 24 separate bushing alloy-lined corrosion-resistant carbon steel coil products from Japan through the initiation of a changed circumstances review. See section 751(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (the Act). Taiho also requested that the Department conduct an expedited changed circumstances review pursuant to 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii). Taiho asserts that the domestic producers, United States Steel (U.S. Steel), and International Steel Group (ISG), do not have any interest in the continuation of the order with respect to the 24 products. The Department received a letter on November 22, 2004, on behalf of U.S. Steel stating they have no objection to the initiation of the changed circumstances review, and on December 3, 2004, received a letter on behalf of ISG, attesting to their lack of interest regarding continuation of the order with respect to the specified 24 products. In response to Taiho’s request and based on the information provided by U.S. Steel and ISG, on December 20, 2004, the Department simultaneously initiated a changed circumstances review and issued a notice of preliminary intent to revoke the order, in part (69 FR 75907). The Department provided interested parties an opportunity to comment on our preliminary intent to revoke the order, in part, with respect to the specified 24 products. We did not receive any comments. Therefore, the final results of review are not different from the preliminary results and we are revoking E:\FR\FM\01FEN1.SGM 01FEN1 5138 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 20 / Tuesday, February 1, 2005 / Notices the order, in part, with respect to the specified 24 products as described in the ‘‘Scope of the Order’’ section of this notice.

Final Results of Review and Revocation of Antidumping Duty Order, In Part Pursuant to sections 751(d)(1) and 782(h)(2) of the Act, as amended (the Act), the Department may revoke an antidumping or countervailing duty order based on a review under section 751(b) of the Act (i.e., a changed circumstances review). Section 751(b)(1) of the Act requires a changed circumstances review to be conducted upon receipt of a request which shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review. In this case, based on the information provided by Taiho, and comments from U.S. Steel and ISG, the Department preliminarily found that the continued relief provided by the order with respect to the 24 separate products from Japan is no longer of interest to the domestic industry. We did not receive any comments. Therefore, the Department is revoking the order on CORE from Japan with regard to the products that meet the specifications detailed above. We will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties, and to refund any estimated antidumping duties collected on all unliquidated entries of the 24 separate products which are not covered by the final results of an administrative review or automatic liquidation. The most recent period for which the Department has completed an administrative review, or ordered automatic liquidation, is August 1, 2002 through July 31, 2003. Therefore, we will instruct CBP to liquidate entries entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 1, 2003, i.e., after the close of the last completed review. Any prior entries are subject to either the final results of review or automatic liquidation. We will also instruct CBP to pay interest on such refunds in accordance with section 778 of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(g)(4).

See Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Frozen and Canned Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil, 69 FR 76910 (Final Determination). On December 23, 2004, we received an allegation, timely filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(c)(2), from the petitioners (i.e., Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee, Versaggi Shrimp Corporation, and Indian Ridge Shrimp Company) that the Department made a ministerial error with respect to 1 On January 21, 2005, the International Trade Commission (ITC) notified the Department of Commerce (the Department) of its final determination that two domestic like products exist for the merchandise covered by the Department’s investigation: 1) certain non-canned warmwater shrimp and prawns; and 2) canned warmwater shrimp and prawns. The ITC determined that imports of canned warmwater shrimp and prawns from Brazil were negligible; therefore, canned warmwater shrimp and prawns will not be covered by the antidumping duty order.

On December 28, 2004, Eastern Fish Company, Inc., and Long John Silver’s, Inc., interested parties in this investigation, submitted a response to the petitioners’ December 23, 2004, ministerial error allegation. In addition, on December 30, 2004, we received allegations, timely filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(c)(2), from the petitioners and the respondents (i.e, Central de Industrializacao e Distribuicao de ¸˜ ¸˜ Alimentos Ltda. (CIDA) and Empresa de Armazenagem Frigorifica Ltda. (EMPAF)) that the Department also made ministerial errors in the final margin calculations. On January 5 and 10, 2005, we received submissions containing rebuttal comments from the petitioners with respect to the ministerial error allegations made by EMPAF and CIDA, respectively. After analyzing the submissions filed by CIDA, EMPAF, the petitioners, and the other interested parties, we have determined, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), that we made the following ministerial errors in our calculations performed for the final determination: Æ We inadvertently failed to convert third country variable costs to the same unit of measure as U.S. variable costs before calculating the difference–inmerchandise adjustment for CIDA. Æ We inadvertently used incorrect programming to convert normal values to the same unit of measure as the United States price which resulted in an incomplete conversion of normal value for CIDA. Æ We inadvertently used an incorrect dataset (CEPTOT) in the final margin program for EMPAF that was not created by the comparison market program. Æ We inadvertently allocated the entire amount of the unreconciled difference between the financial statements and the submitted cost to the cost of fresh shrimp for EMPAF. Correcting these errors results in revised margins for CIDA and EMPAF. In addition, we have revised the calculation of the ‘‘all others’’ rate accordingly. For a detailed discussion of the ministerial errors alleged by the petitioners and the respondents, as well as the Department’s analysis, see the January 24, 2005, memorandum to Louis Apple from the Team entitled ‘‘Ministerial Error Allegations in the Final Determination of the Antidumping Duty Investigation of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil.’’ Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the final determination of sales at LTFV in the E:\FR\FM\01FEN1.SGM 01FEN1

Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances 
Review and Revocation, in Part: Certain Corrosion-Resistant Carbon 
Steel Flat Products From Japan

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

DATES: Effective Date: February 1, 2005.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On August 19, 1993, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published an antidumping duty order on certain corrosion-resistant 
carbon steel flat products from Japan. See Antidumping Duty Orders: 
Certain Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products From Japan, 58 
FR 44163 (August 19, 1993). On October 26, 2004, Taiho requested that 
the Department revoke the antidumping duty order on 24 separate bushing 
alloy-lined corrosion-resistant carbon steel coil products from Japan 
through the initiation of a changed circumstances review. See section 
751(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (the Act). Taiho also requested that 
the Department conduct an expedited changed circumstances review 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii).
    Taiho asserts that the domestic producers, United States Steel 
(U.S. Steel), and International Steel Group (ISG), do not have any 
interest in the continuation of the order with respect to the 24 
products. The Department received a letter on November 22, 2004, on 
behalf of U.S. Steel stating they have no objection to the initiation 
of the changed circumstances review, and on December 3, 2004, received 
a letter on behalf of ISG, attesting to their lack of interest 
regarding continuation of the order with respect to the specified 24 
products.
    In response to Taiho's request and based on the information 
provided by U.S. Steel and ISG, on December 20, 2004, the Department 
simultaneously initiated a changed circumstances review and issued a 
notice of preliminary intent to revoke the order, in part (69 FR 
75907). The Department provided interested parties an opportunity to 
comment on our preliminary intent to revoke the order, in part, with 
respect to the specified 24 products. We did not receive any comments. 
Therefore, the final results of review are not different from the 
preliminary results and we are revoking

Final Results of Review and Revocation of Antidumping Duty Order, In 
Part

    Pursuant to sections 751(d)(1) and 782(h)(2) of the Act, as amended 
(the Act), the Department may revoke an antidumping or countervailing 
duty order based on a review under section 751(b) of the Act (i.e., a 
changed circumstances review). Section 751(b)(1) of the Act requires a 
changed circumstances review to be conducted upon receipt of a request 
which shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review.
    In this case, based on the information provided by Taiho, and 
comments from U.S. Steel and ISG, the Department preliminarily found 
that the continued relief provided by the order with respect to the 24 
separate products from Japan is no longer of interest to the domestic 
industry. We did not receive any comments. Therefore, the Department is 
revoking the order on CORE from Japan with regard to the products that 
meet the specifications detailed above.
    We will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
liquidate without regard to antidumping duties, and to refund any 
estimated antidumping duties collected on all unliquidated entries of 
the 24 separate products which are not covered by the final results of 
an administrative review or automatic liquidation. The most recent 
period for which the Department has completed an administrative review, 
or ordered automatic liquidation, is August 1, 2002 through July 31, 
2003. Therefore, we will instruct CBP to liquidate entries entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 1, 2003, 
i.e., after the close of the last completed review. Any prior entries 
are subject to either the final results of review or automatic 
liquidation. We will also instruct CBP to pay interest on such refunds 
in accordance with section 778 of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(g)(4).
    This changed circumstances administrative review, partial 
revocation of the antidumping duty order and notice are in accordance 
with sections 751(b) and (d) and 782(h) of the Act and section 
351.216(e) and 351.222(g)(1)(i) of the Department's regulations.
