The Department calculated importer–specific duty assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of the examined sales for that importer. Where the assessment rate is above de minimis, we will instruct CBP to assess duties on all entries of subject merchandise by that importer. The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of these final results of review. rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES1 Cash Deposits Furthermore, the following deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of rebar from Latvia entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of these final results, as provided by section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act): (1) for LM, the cash deposit rate will be 5.24 percent; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not covered in this review but covered in a previous segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company–specific rate published in the most recent final results in which that producer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review or in any previous segment of this proceeding, but the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be that established for the producer of the merchandise in these final results of review or in the most recent final results in which that producer participated; and (4) if neither the exporter nor the producer is a firm covered in this review or in any previous segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will be 17.21 percent, the ‘‘All Others’’ rate established in the less–than-fair–value investigation. These deposit requirements shall remain in effect until publication of the final results of the next administrative review. This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:10 Feb 09, 2006 Jkt 208001 presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred, and in the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

See Initiation of Five-year (‘‘Sunset’’) Reviews, 70 FR 65884 (November 1, 2005). On November 16, 2005, the domestic interested parties IPSCO Steel Inc., Mittal Steel USA ISG, Inc., Nucor Corporation, Oregon Steel Mills, Inc., the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union, and AFL–CIO-CLC (‘‘USW’’), submitted letters indicating their intent to participate in the sunset reviews. On November 30, 2005 and December 1, 2005, domestic and respondent interested parties provided substantive responses as required under section 351.218 (d)(3)(i) of the Department’s regulations. In all three cases, respondent interested parties (for Belgium, the Government of Belgium, the European Commission, Arcelor S.A., and Duferco Clabecq S.A.; for Sweden, the Government of Sweden, the European Commission, and SSAB Svenskt Stal; for the UK, the Government of the United Kingdom, the European Commission, Niagara LaSalle UK Limited, Spartan UK Ltd., and Corus Group, plc), included, in their substantive responses, arguments regarding the privatization or private– to-private changes in ownership which affected the respondent companies, and the effect of those transactions on previously bestowed subsidies. On December 21, 2005, the Department determined that the participation of the respondent interested parties was adequate, and that it was appropriate to conduct full sunset reviews.

See section 751(c)(5)(A) of the Act. The U.S. Department of Commerce, (‘‘the Department’’) may extend the period of time for issuing the final results of an expedited sunset review if it determines that the review is extraordinarily complicated. This deadline may be extended by 90 days under section 751(c)(5)(B) of the Act if the Department determines that the review is extraordinarily complicated. We determine that these reviews are extraordinarily complicated under subsections 751(c)(5)(C) (i) (‘‘there are a large number of issues’’), (ii) (‘‘the issues to be considered are complex’’) and (v) (‘‘it is a review of a transition order’’) of the Act. Thus, it is appropriate to extend the final results of review by not more than 90 days. As such, our final results are now due on or before September 27, 2006. With respect to the preliminary results of these sunset reviews, the Department’s regulations, at section 351.218(f)(3), provide that the Department normally will issue its preliminary results in a full sunset review not later than 110 days after the initiation, in these cases, by February 19, 2006. However, due to the reasons cited above, we require additional time to conduct the analysis required for the preliminary results.

Background On November 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published in the Federal Register the notice of initiation of the sunset reviews of the countervailing duty orders on cut–to-length carbon steel plate (‘‘CTL steel plate’’) from Brazil and Spain. See Initiation of Five-year (‘‘Sunset’’) Reviews, 70 FR 65884 (November 1, 2005). Based on adequate responses from the domestic interested parties and inadequate responses from respondent interested parties, the Department is conducting expedited sunset reviews of these countervailing duty orders. Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Reviews In accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the U.S. Department of Commerce, (‘‘the Department’’) may extend the period of time for issuing the final results of an expedited sunset review if it determines that the review is extraordinarily complicated. As set forth in subsection 751(c)(5)(C)(v) of the Act, the Department may treat a sunset review as extraordinarily complicated if it is a review of a transition order, as is the case in these proceedings. A transition order is defined as including countervailing duty orders which were in effect on January 1, 1995, the date on which the WTO Agreement’s provisions on sunset reviews went into effect. Transition orders are treated as issued on January 1, 1995. See section 751(c)(6)(D) of the Act. The countervailing duty orders on CTL steel plate from Brazil and Spain were issued prior to January 1, 1995; as such they are deemed transition orders for purposes of the sunset proceeding. In accordance with section 751(c)(5)(C)(v) of the Act, the Department has determined that the sunset reviews of the countervailing duty orders on CTL steel plate from Brazil and Spain require additional time for the Department to complete its analysis. The Department’s final results of these sunset reviews were scheduled for completion on March 1, 2006. The Department will extend the deadlines in these proceedings by 90 days and, as a result, issue the final results of these PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 expedited sunset reviews no later than May 30, 2006.

Background

    On November 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published in the Federal Register the notice of 
initiation of its sunset reviews of the countervailing duty orders on 
cut-to-length carbon steel plate (``CTL steel plate'') from Belgium, 
Sweden, and the United Kingdom (``UK''). See Initiation of Five-year 
(``Sunset'') Reviews, 70 FR 65884 (November 1, 2005). On November 16, 
2005, the domestic interested parties IPSCO Steel Inc., Mittal Steel 
USA ISG, Inc., Nucor Corporation, Oregon Steel Mills, Inc., the United 
Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied 
Industrial and Service Workers International Union, and AFL-CIO-CLC 
(``USW''), submitted letters indicating their intent to participate in 
the sunset reviews. On November 30, 2005 and December 1, 2005, domestic 
and respondent interested parties provided substantive responses as 
required under section 351.218 (d)(3)(i) of the Department's 
regulations. In all three cases, respondent interested parties (for 
Belgium, the Government of Belgium, the European Commission, Arcelor 
S.A., and Duferco Clabecq S.A.; for Sweden, the Government of Sweden, 
the European Commission, and SSAB Svenskt Stal; for the UK, the 
Government of the United Kingdom, the European Commission, Niagara 
LaSalle UK Limited, Spartan UK Ltd., and Corus Group, plc), included, 
in their substantive responses, arguments regarding the privatization 
or private-to-private changes in ownership which affected the 
respondent companies, and the effect of those transactions on 
previously bestowed subsidies.
    On December 21, 2005, the Department determined that the 
participation of the respondent interested parties was adequate, and 
that it was appropriate to conduct full sunset reviews. See Memoranda 
to Steven J. Claeys: Adequacy Determination; Sunset Review of the

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary and Final Results of Reviews

    The Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), provides for the 
completion of a full sunset review within 240 days

of the publication of the initiation notice. See section 751(c)(5)(A) 
of the Act. The U.S. Department of Commerce, (``the Department'') may 
extend the period of time for issuing the final results of an expedited 
sunset review if it determines that the review is extraordinarily 
complicated. This deadline may be extended by 90 days under section 
751(c)(5)(B) of the Act if the Department determines that the review is 
extraordinarily complicated. We determine that these reviews are 
extraordinarily complicated under subsections 751(c)(5)(C) (i) (``there 
are a large number of issues''), (ii) (``the issues to be considered 
are complex'') and (v) (``it is a review of a transition order'') of 
the Act. Thus, it is appropriate to extend the final results of review 
by not more than 90 days. As such, our final results are now due on or 
before September 27, 2006.
    With respect to the preliminary results of these sunset reviews, 
the Department's regulations, at section 351.218(f)(3), provide that 
the Department normally will issue its preliminary results in a full 
sunset review not later than 110 days after the initiation, in these 
cases, by February 19, 2006. However, due to the reasons cited above, 
we require additional time to conduct the analysis required for the 
preliminary results. Therefore, we are extending the deadline for the 
preliminary results of these full sunset reviews of the countervailing 
duty orders on cut-to-length carbon steel plate from Belgium, Sweden, 
and the United Kingdom to no later than July 14, 2006.
