EFFECTIVE DATE: August 18, 2005. SUMMARY: We preliminarily determine that imports of superalloy degassed chromium from Japan are being, or are likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value, as provided in section 733 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended. Interested parties are invited to comment on this preliminary determination. We will make our final determination within 75 days after the date of this preliminary determination.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On March 24, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated the antidumping investigation of superalloy degassed chromium from Japan. See Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigation: Superalloy Degassed Chromium from Japan, 70 FR 16220 (March 30, 2005) (Initiation Notice). The Department set aside a period for all interested parties to raise issues regarding product coverage. See Initiation Notice. We received comments regarding product coverage from interested parties. For a detailed discussion of the comments regarding the scope of the merchandise under investigation, please see the ‘‘Scope Comments’’ section below. VerDate jul<14>2003 12:20 Aug 17, 2005 Jkt 205001 On March 31, 2005, the Department issued quantity and value (Q&V) questionnaires to nine potential respondents. On April 19, 2005, we issued a memorandum to the file including the responses of eight of the nine companies from which we requested Q&V information. See Memorandum from Susan Lehman to the File entitled ‘‘Superalloy Degassed Chromium from Japan Mini Quantity and Value Questionnaire Responses.’’ On April 28, 2005, we concluded that the only potential respondent was JFE Material Co., Ltd. (JFE Material). See the Memorandum from Thomas Schauer to the File entitled ‘‘Antidumping Duty Investigation of Superalloy Degassed Chromium from Japan Respondent Selection’’ (Respondent Selection Memo). On May 3, 2005, we issued a memorandum to the file including the response of the ninth company (Sojitz Corporation) from which we requested Q&V information. The response we received from Sojitz Corporation to our Q&V questionnaire did not alter out conclusion that JFE Material was the only potential respondent. See Memorandum from Susan Lehman to the File entitled ‘‘Antidumping Duty Investigation of Superalloy Degassed Chromium from Japan Sojitz Corporation.’’ On April 21, 2005, the International Trade Commission (ITC) issued its affirmative preliminary determination that there is a reasonable indication that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of imports from Japan of superalloy degassed chromium. See Superalloy Degassed Chromium from Japan, 70 FR 20771 (April 21, 2005). On April 29, 2005, we issued Sections A, B, C, D, and E1 of the antidumping questionnaire to JFE Material. We did not receive a response from JFE Material by the close of business on June 6, 2005, the established deadline. On June 8, 2005, we issued a letter to JFE Material extending the deadline for submission of the antidumping questionnaire response to June 15, 2005, thereby 1 Section A of the antidumping duty questionnaire requests general information concerning a company’s corporate structure and business practices, the merchandise under investigation, and the manner in which it sells that merchandise in all of its markets. Section B requests a complete listing of all of the company’s homemarket sales of the foreign like product or, if the home market is not viable, of sales of the foreign like product in the most appropriate third-country market. Section C requests a complete listing of the company’s U.S. sales of subject merchandise. Section D requests information of the cost of production of the foreign like product and the constructed value of the merchandise under investigation. Section E requests information on further-manufacturing activities. PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 affording it additional time to respond. We received no response from JFE Material to our questionnaire nor any other communication from JFE Material since we issued the questionnaire. Period of Investigation The period of investigation is January 1, 2004, through December 31, 2004. Scope of Investigation The product covered by this investigation is all forms, sizes, and grades of superalloy degassed chromium from Japan. Superalloy degassed chromium is a high–purity form of chrome metal that generally contains at least 99.5 percent, but less than 99.95 percent, chromium. Superalloy degassed chromium contains very low levels of certain gaseous elements and other impurities (typically no more than 0.005 percent nitrogen, 0.005 percent sulphur, 0.05 percent oxygen, 0.01 percent aluminum, 0.05 percent silicon, and 0.35 percent iron). Superalloy degassed chromium is generally sold in briquetted form, as ‘‘pellets’’ or ‘‘compacts,’’ which typically are 1? inches x 1 inch x 1 inch or smaller in size and have a smooth surface. Superalloy degassed chromium is currently classifiable under subheading 8112.21.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). This investigation covers all chromium meeting the above specifications for superalloy degassed chromium regardless of tariff classification. Certain higher–purity and lower– purity chromium products are excluded from the scope of this investigation. Specifically, the investigation does not cover electronics–grade chromium, which contains a higher percentage of chromium (typically not less than 99.95 percent), a much lower level of iron (less than 0.05 percent), and lower levels of other impurities than superalloy degassed chromium. The investigation also does not cover ‘‘vacuum melt grade’’ (VMG) chromium, which normally contains at least 99.4 percent chromium and contains a higher level of one or more impurities (nitrogen, sulphur, oxygen, aluminum and/or silicon) than specified above for superalloy degassed chromium. Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this investigation is dispositive. Scope Comments In accordance with the preamble to our regulations (see Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties, 62 FR 27296 (May 19, 1997)), in our Initiation Notice we set aside a period of time for E:\FR\FM\18AUN1.SGM 18AUN1
