SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) and the International Trade Commission (the ‘‘ITC’’) that revocation of the antidumping duty (‘‘AD’’) order on fresh and chilled Atlantic salmon (‘‘salmon’’) from Norway would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping; that revocation of the countervailing duty (‘‘CVD’’) order on salmon from Norway would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of a countervailable subsidy; and that revocation of these AD and CVD orders would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States, the Department is publishing this notice of the continuation of these AD and CVD orders.

See Notice of Initiation of Five-year (‘‘Sunset’’) Reviews, 70 FR 5415 (February 2, 2005). As a result of its reviews, the Department found that revocation of the AD order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and that revocation of the CVD order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of subsidization, and notified the ITC of the margins of dumping and the subsidy rates likely to prevail were the orders revoked.

The subject merchandise is typically packed in fresh–water ice (‘‘chilled’’). Excluded from the subject merchandise are fillets, steaks and other cuts of Atlantic salmon. Also excluded are frozen, canned, smoked or otherwise processed Atlantic salmon. Atlantic salmon is currently provided for under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) subheadings 0302.12.0003 and 0302.12.0004.

SUMMARY: On September 7, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the Preliminary Results of the antidumping duty administrative review for certain corrosion–resistant carbon steel flat products (CORE) from the Republic of Korea (Korea). See Certain Corrosion– Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products from Korea: Notice of Preliminary Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 53153 (September 7, 2005) (Preliminary Results). This review covers five manufacturers and exporters rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES AGENCY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:38 Feb 10, 2006 Jkt 208001 of the subject merchandise: Union Steel Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (Union); Pohang Iron & Steel Company, Ltd. (POSCO) and Pohang Coated Steel Co., Ltd. (POCOS) (collectively, the POSCO Group); Hyundai HYSCO (HYSCO); Dongbu Steel Co., Ltd. (Dongbu) (collectively, respondents); and Dongshin Special Steel Co., Ltd. (Dongshin). The period of review (POR) is August 1, 2003, through July 31, 2004. As a result of our analysis of the comments received, these final results differ from the Preliminary Results. For our final results, we have found that during the POR, the POSCO Group, Union and Dongbu sold subject merchandise at less than normal value (NV). We have also found that HYSCO did not make sales of the subject merchandise at less than NV (i.e., it has a zero or de minimis dumping margin). Regarding Dongshin, because it failed to respond to the Department’s questionnaire, we have preliminarily determined to resort to adverse facts available and assigned to Dongshin the ‘‘All Others’’ rate in effect for this order (17.70 percent), which is the highest margin upheld in this proceeding. See Preliminary Results at 53155–56. Since the publication of the Preliminary Results, we have not received any comments regarding Dongshin from interested parties that would warrant reconsideration of our finding. Therefore, we have continued to assign a rate of 17.70 percent to Dongshin. The final results are listed in the ‘‘Final Results of Review’’ section below. Furthermore, we rescinded the request for review of the antidumping order for SeAH Steel Corporation (SeAH) because neither SeAH nor its affiliates had exports or sales of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. For more information, see Preliminary Results at 53154. EFFECTIVE DATE: February 13, 2006.

Continuation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders: Fresh 
and Chilled Atlantic Salmon from Norway

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of 
Commerce (the ``Department'') and the International Trade Commission 
(the ``ITC'') that revocation of the antidumping duty (``AD'') order on 
fresh and chilled Atlantic salmon (``salmon'') from Norway would likely 
lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping; that revocation of the 
countervailing duty (``CVD'') order on salmon from Norway would likely 
lead to continuation or recurrence of a countervailable subsidy; and 
that revocation of these AD and CVD orders would likely lead to a 
continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the 
United States, the Department is publishing this notice of the 
continuation of these AD and CVD orders.

EFFECTIVE DATE: February 13, 2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Zev Primor (AD order), Tipten Troidl

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 2, 2005, the Department initiated and the ITC 
instituted sunset reviews of the AD and CVD orders on salmon from 
Norway, pursuant to sections 751(c) and 752 of the Tariff Act of 1930, 
as amended (the ``Act''), respectively. See Notice of Initiation of 
Five-year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 70 FR 5415 (February 2, 2005). As a 
result of its reviews, the Department found that revocation of the AD 
order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and 
that revocation of the CVD order would likely lead to continuation or 
recurrence of subsidization, and notified the ITC of the margins of 
dumping and the subsidy rates likely to prevail were the orders 
revoked. See Fresh and Chilled Atlantic Salmon From Norway: Final 
Results of the Full Sunset Review of Antidumping Duty Order, 70 FR

of material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to 
section 751(d)(2) of the Act, the Department hereby orders the 
continuation of the AD and CVD orders on salmon from Norway. U.S.
