Cut-to-Length Carbon Steel Plate from Brazil and Spain; Extension of Time Limits for Final Results of Expedited Five-year (“Sunset”) Reviews of Countervailing Duty Orders, 7018 [E6-1879]

Download as PDF 7018 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 28 / Friday, February 10, 2006 / Notices 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. This notice is issued in accordance with sections 751(c)(5)(B) and 751(c)(5)(C) of the Act. Dated: February 6, 2006. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

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.

Cut-to-Length Carbon Steel Plate from Brazil and Spain; Extension 
of Time Limits for Final Results of Expedited Five-year (``Sunset'') 
Reviews of Countervailing Duty Orders

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. 
Department of Commerce.

EFFECTIVE DATE: February 10, 2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Martha Douthit or Dana Mermelstein, 
AD/CVD Operations, Office 6, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street & Constitution 
Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: 202-482-5050 or 202-482-
1391, respectively.

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 expedited sunset reviews no later than May 30, 2006.
    This notice is issued in accordance with sections 751(c)(5)(B) and 
751(c)(5)(C)(v) of the Act.

     Dated: February 6, 2006.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
