SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 29, 2001, the Department published in the Federal 
Register an antidumping duty order on certain hot-rolled carbon steel 
flat products from Romania. See Notice of Amended Final Antidumping 
Duty Determination and Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Hot-Rolled 
Carbon Steel Flat Products from Romania, 66 FR 59566 (November 29, 
2001). Since publication, there have been two administrative reviews of 
this order. Sidex was a participant in both administrative reviews. In 
a letter dated March 24, 2005, Sidex informed the Department that on 
February 7, 2005, it changed its corporate name to Mittal Steel Galati, 
S.A. (Mittal Steel), following the approval of the name change by 
Sidex's general meeting of shareholders on January 10, 2005. Sidex 
provided record evidence indicating that the name change was 
unconditionally recorded and approved by the Trade Register Office of 
the Galati Tribunal and the National Office of the Trade Registry, a 
bureau of the Romanian Ministry of Justice, on February 7, 2005. As 
such, Sidex requested that the Department initiate a changed-
circumstances review to confirm that Mittal Steel is the successor-in-
interest to Sidex for purposes of determining antidumping-duty 
liabilities. Sidex also requested that the Department conduct a 
changed-circumstances review on an expedited basis, pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.221(c)(3)(ii).
    Because the record evidence supporting Sidex's claim was 
sufficient, the Department found that an expedited review was 
practicable and, on May 13, 2005, issued a combined notice of 
initiation with the preliminary results. See Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon 
Steel Flat Products from Romania: Initiation and Preliminary Results of 
Changed-Circumstances Review, 70 FR 25547 (May 13, 2005) (Preliminary 
Results).
    In its Preliminary Results, the Department provided the interested 
parties with an opportunity to comment or request a public hearing 
regarding the Department's finding that Mittal Steel is the successor-
in-interest to Sidex. We did not receive any comments or any requests 
for a public hearing.

Scope of the Order

    For purposes of the order, the products covered include hot-rolled 
carbon steel flat products. For a complete description of the scope of 
the order, see Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from 
Romania: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 
69 FR 70644 (December 7, 2004).

Final Results of Changed-Circumstances Review

    For the reasons stated in the Preliminary Results and because we 
received no comments to the contrary, we continue to find that Mittal 
Steel is the successor-in-interest to Sidex. We will instruct U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to apply the cash-deposit rate in 
effect for Sidex to all entries of the subject merchandise from Mittal 
Steel that were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption 
on or after the date of publication of the final results of this 
changed-circumstances review. See Granular Polytetrafluoroethylene 
Resin from Italy: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed 
Circumstances Review, 68 FR 25327 (May 12, 2003).
    This determination and this notice are in accordance with sections 
751(b)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216.

    Dated: July 11, 2005.
