Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 79 / Tuesday, April 26, 2005 / Notices The June 14, 2002, and July 16, 2004, notices advised exporters that the involvement of a listed person in a transaction constituted a ‘‘red flag’’ under the ‘‘Know Your Customer’’ guidance set forth in Supplement No. 3 to 15 CFR part 732 of the EAR. Under that guidance, whenever there is a ‘‘red flag,’’ exporters have an affirmative duty to inquire, verify, or otherwise substantiate the proposed transaction to satisfy themselves that the transaction does not involve a proliferation activity prohibited in 15 CFR part 744, and does not violate other provisions of the EAR. The Federal Register notices further stated that BIS may periodically add persons to the Unverified List based on the criteria set forth above, and remove persons when warranted. This notice advises exporters that BIS is adding Parrlab Technical Solutions, LTD in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to the Unverified List. A ‘‘red flag’’ now exists for transactions involving this entity due to its inclusion on the Unverified List. As a result, exporters have an affirmative duty to inquire, verify, or otherwise substantiate the proposed transaction to satisfy themselves that the transaction does not involve a proliferation activity prohibited in 15 CFR part 744, and does not violate other provisions of the EAR.

ACTION: Notice of initiation and request for comments. AGENCY: DATES: April 26, 2005. SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce is initiating a changed circumstances review in order to determine whether Ukraine should continue to be treated as a non–market economy country for purposes of the antidumping duty law. Written comments (original and six copies) should be sent to Joseph A. Spetrini, Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, Central Records Unit, Room 1870, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate jul<14>2003 16:10 Apr 25, 2005 Jkt 205001 Background Citing changes that have occurred in Ukraine over the past several years, on April 2, 2005 the Government of Ukraine’s Ministry of Economy and European Integration requested that the Department of Commerce conduct a review of Ukraine’s status as a non– market economy (‘‘NME’’) country within the context of a changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty order on carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod from Ukraine. In response to this request, the Department is initiating a changed circumstances review in order to determine whether Ukraine should continue to be treated as an NME country for purposes of the antidumping law, pursuant to sections 751(b) and 771(18)(C)(ii) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). Specifically, the Department is resuming the review of Ukraine’s NME status on which it deferred a decision in 2002. See Antidumping Duty Investigation of Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Ukraine; Notice to defer a decision regarding Ukraine’s non– market economy status, 67 FR 51536 (August 8, 2002). The Department has treated Ukraine as an NME country in all past antidumping duty investigations and administrative reviews. See, e.g., Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Ukraine, 67 FR 55785 (August 30, 2002); Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Hot–Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from Ukraine, 66 FR 50401 (October 3, 2001); and Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars from Ukraine, 66 FR 1857 (April 11, 2001). A designation as a NME remains in effect until it is revoked by the Department. See section 771(18)(C)(i) of the Act. Opportunity for Public Comment As part of this inquiry to determine whether to revoke Ukraine’s NME status, the Department is interested in receiving public comment with respect to Ukraine in relation to the factors listed in section 771(18)(B) of the Act, which the Department must take into account in making a market/non–market economy determination: (i) The extent to which the currency of the foreign country is convertible into the currency of other countries; (ii) the extent to which wage rates in the foreign country are determined by free bargaining between labor and management; PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (iii) the extent to which joint ventures or other investments by firms of other foreign countries are permitted in the foreign country; (iv) the extent of government ownership or control of the means of production; (v) the extent of government control over allocation of resources and over price and output decisions of enterprises; and (vi) such other factors as the administering authority considers appropriate. Comments--Deadline, Format, and Number of Copies The deadline for submission of comments will be 45 days after the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. Rebuttal comments may be submitted up to 30 days after the date by which initial comments are due. Each person submitting comments should include his or her name and address, and give reasons for any recommendation. To facilitate their consideration by the Department, comments should be submitted in the following format: (1) begin each comment on a separate page; (2) concisely state the issue identified and discussed in the comment and include any supporting documentation in exhibits or appendices; (3) provide a brief summary of the comment (a maximum of three sentences) and label this section ‘‘summary of comment≥; (4) provide an index or table of contents; and (5) include the case number, A– 823–812, in the top right hand corner of the submission.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 19, 2004, the U.S. Department of Commerce 
(``Department'') published a notice of initiation of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel 
Wire Rod from Mexico, covering the period from October 1, 2003 to 
September 30, 2004. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Administrative Reviews, 69 FR 67701, (November 19, 2004.). The 
preliminary results of this review are currently due no later than July 
3, 2005.

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination 
within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order 
or finding for which a review is requested. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Act further states that if it is not practicable to complete the review 
within the time period specified, the administering authority may 
extend the 245-day period to issue its preliminary results by up to 365 
days.
    We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this 
review within the 245-day period is not practicable for the following 
reasons. This review covers six companies, and to conduct the sales and 
cost analyses for each

[[Page 21396]]

requires the Department to gather and analyze a significant amount of 
information pertaining to each company's sales practices, manufacturing 
costs and corporate relationships. In addition, the Department is 
analyzing issues related to scope exclusions of certain products. Given 
the number and complexity of issues in this case, and in accordance 
with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are extending the time period 
for issuing the preliminary results of review to 365 days. Therefore, 
the preliminary results are now due no later than October 31, 2005. The 
final results continued to be due 120 days after publication of the 
preliminary results.

751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
