Included in these orders are flat–rolled products of non–rectangular cross-section where such cross-section is achieved subsequent to the rolling process (i.e., products which have been ‘‘worked after rolling’’) for example, products which have been beveled or rounded at the edges. Excluded from these orders are flat–rolled steel products either plated or coated with tin, lead, chromium, chromium oxides, both tin and lead (‘‘terne plate’’), or both chromium and chromium oxides (‘‘tin– free steel’’), whether or not painted, varnished or coated with plastics or other nonmetallic substances in addition to the metallic coating. Also excluded from these orders are clad products in straight lengths of 0.1875 inch or more in composite thickness and of a width which exceeds 150 millimeters and measures at least twice the thickness. Also excluded from these orders are certain clad stainless flat– rolled products, which are three– layered corrosion–resistant carbon steel flat–rolled products less than 4.75 millimeters in composite thickness that consist of a carbon steel flat–rolled product clad on both sides with stainless steel in a 20%-60%-20% ratio. On September 22, 1999, the Department issued the final results of a changed circumstances review partially revoking the order with respect to certain corrosion–resistant steel from Germany.2 This partial revocation 2 See Final Results of Changed Circumstances Antidumping Duty and Countervailing Duty Reviews and Revocation of Orders in Part: Certain VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:37 Dec 27, 2005 Jkt 208001 applies to certain corrosion–resistant deep–drawing carbon steel strip, roll– clad on both sides with aluminum (AlSi) foils in accordance with St3 LG as to EN 10139/10140. The merchandise’s chemical composition encompasses a core material of U St 23 (continuous casting) in which carbon is less than 0.08; manganese is less than 0.30; phosphorous is less than 0.20; sulfur is less than 0.015; aluminum is less than 0.01; and the cladding material is a minimum of 99% aluminum with silicon/copper/iron of less than 1%. The products are in strips with thicknesses of 0.07mm to 4.0mm (inclusive) and widths of 5mm to 800mm (inclusive). The thickness ratio of aluminum on either side of steel may range from 3%/ 94%/3% to 10%/80%/10%. The HTSUS item numbers are provided for convenience and Customs purposes. The written description remains dispositive. Initiation of Changed Circumstances Reviews Pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Act, the Department will conduct a changed circumstances review upon receipt of information concerning, or a request from an interested party for a review of, an AD duty order which shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review of the order. As noted above, on November 7, 2005, Eutectic requested a ruling from the Department in accordance with 19 CFR 351.216(b) to exclude the ‘‘wear plate’’ product described above from these AD orders. Therefore, pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216(b), we are initiating changed circumstances reviews. Although petitioners and domestic interested parties have expressed a lack of interest in the orders with respect to the ‘‘wear plate’’ product in question, they did not claim that they represent substantially all of the production of the domestic like product, nor has the Department made such a determination. Therefore, the Department is not, at this time, preliminarily revoking the AD orders with respect to the product in question pursuant to 19 CFR 351.222(g)(1)(i). Interested parties are invited to comment on this initiation, or to demonstrate that the petitioners and domestic interested parties account for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product. Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products from Germany, 64 FR 51292 (September 22, 1999). The Department noted that the affirmative statement of no interest by petitioners, combined with the lack of comments from interested parties, is sufficient to warrant partial revocation.

The due date for filing any such comments is no later than 15 days after publication of this notice. Responses to those comments may be submitted not later than 7 days following submission of the comments. All written comments must be submitted in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303. The Department will publish in the Federal Register a notice of preliminary results of changed circumstances reviews in accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4) and 351.221(c)(3)(i), which will set forth the Department’s preliminary factual and legal conclusions. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(ii), interested parties will have an opportunity to comment on the preliminary results. The Department will issue its final results of review in accordance with the time limits set forth in 19 CFR 351.216(e).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On September 8, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the

[[Page 76765]]

Department'') published the preliminary results of this administrative 
review of certain cut-to-length carbon steel plate (``cut-to-length 
plate'') from Romania. See Certain Cut-to-Length Carbon Steel Plate 
from Romania: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review and Partial Rescission, 70 FR 53333 (September 8, 2005) 
(``Preliminary Results''). In the Preliminary Results we stated that we 
would make our final determination for the antidumping duty review no 
later than 120 days after the date of publication of the preliminary 
results (i.e., January 6, 2006).

Extension of Time Limit for Final Results

    The Department is extending the time limit for the final results of 
the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on cut-to-
length plate from Romania. This review covers the period August 1, 
2003, through July 31, 2004.
    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), states that if it is not practicable to complete the review 
within the time specified, the administering authority may extend the 
120-day period, following the date of publication of the preliminary 
results, to issue its final results by an additional 60 days. Due to 
the complexity of issues raised in this review segment, including the 
respondent's notification of unreported sales following the 
Department's preliminary results, and the respondent's withdrawal of 
its business proprietary versions of all information submitted on the 
record of this review, the completion of the final results within the 
120-day period is not practicable.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the 
Department is extending the time period for issuing the final results 
of review by an additional 31 days until no later than February 6, 
2006.
