Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 102 / Friday, May 26, 2006 / Notices U.S. affiliate are fewer and less complex than the selling functions VMB performs for either LOT in the home market. Compared to U.S. sales, the chain of distribution in the home market is at a level much more advanced. For example, many sales to distributors go through unaffiliated warehouses and VMB provides after–sales services to end–users. In contrast, VMB’s selling functions for U.S. sales end with delivery at the port of entry. Accordingly, because the data available do not provide an appropriate basis for making a LOT adjustment, but the LOT in the home market is at a more advanced stage of distribution than the LOT of the CEP transactions, we preliminarily determine that a CEP offset adjustment is appropriate, in accordance with section 773(a)(7)(B) of the Act. Currency Conversion We made currency conversions into U.S. dollars, in accordance with section 773A(a) of the Act, based on the exchange rates in effect on the dates of the U.S. sales, as certified by the Federal Reserve Bank. Preliminary Results of Review As a result of our review, we preliminarily determine the weighted– average dumping margin for the period August 1, 2004, through July 31, 2005, to be as follows: Manufacturer / Exporter Margin (percent) jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES V & M do Brasil, S.A. ....... 0.00 The Department will disclose calculations performed in connection with these preliminary results of review within five days of the date of publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). Interested parties may submit case briefs and/or written comments no later than 30 days after the date of publication of these preliminary results of review. Rebuttal briefs and rebuttals to written comments, limited to issues raised in the case briefs and comments, may be filed no later than 35 days after the date of publication of this notice. Parties who submit argument in these proceedings are requested to submit with the argument: 1) a statement of the issue, 2) a brief summary of the argument, and (3) a table of authorities. An interested party may request a hearing within 30 days of publication. See section 351.310(c) of the Department’s regulations. Any hearing, if requested, will be held 37 days after the date of publication, or the first business day thereafter, unless the Department alters VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:12 May 25, 2006 Jkt 208001 the date. The Department will issue the final results of these preliminary results, including the results of our analysis of the issues raised in any such written comments or at a hearing, within 120 days of publication of these preliminary results. Assessment Rates Upon completion of this administrative review, the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we have calculated an importer–specific ad valorem rate for merchandise subject to this review. The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of the final results of review. If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of review, we will direct CBP to liquidate entries subject to this review without regard to antidumping duties. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by the company included in these preliminary results for which the reviewed company did not know their merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all–others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company involved in the transaction. Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective upon completion of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the final results of this review; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the company–specific rate established for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the less than fair value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the subject merchandise; and (4) if PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30383 neither the exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered in this review, any previous reviews, or the LTFV investigation, the cash deposit rate will be 124.94 percent, the ‘‘all others’’ rate established in the LTFV investigation. See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order and Amended Final Determination: Certain Small Diameter Seamless Carbon and Alloy Steel Standard, Line and Pressure Pipe from Brazil, 60 FR 39707 (August 3, 1995). These deposit rates, when imposed, shall remain in effect until publication of the final results of the next administrative review. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) 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 presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: May 19, 2006. David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.

exporter and producer of the subject merchandise, that it did not 
export subject merchandise to the United States during the period of 
the investigation (POI) (January 1, 1995, through December 31, 1995),

Kroman also submitted documentation establishing the date on which its 
shipment of subject merchandise first entered for consumption, the 
volume shipped, and the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated 
customer in the United States.

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by this order is all stock deformed steel 
concrete reinforcing bars sold in straight lengths and coils. This

Initiation of Review

    In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(d), we are initiating a new shipper review of the antidumping 
duty order on rebar from Turkey produced and exported by Kroman. See 
the Memorandum from the Team to the File through Irene Darzenta 
Tzafolias, Acting Office Director, entitled ``Initiation of AD New 
Shipper Review: Certain Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars from Turkey,'' 
dated May 22, 2006. Normally, we would issue the preliminary results of 
this review not later than 180 days after the date on which the review 
is initiated. However, on May 15, 2006, Kroman agreed to waive the time 
limits in order that the Department, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(j)(3), 
may conduct this review concurrently with the ninth administrative 
review of this order for the period April 1, 2005, through March 31, 
2006, which will be conducted pursuant to section 751(a)(1) of the Act. 
Therefore, we intend to issue the final results of this review not 
later than 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(A), the period of review (POR)

    We will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend 
liquidation of any unliquidated entries of the subject merchandise from 
Kroman and allow, at the option of the importer, the posting, until 
completion of the review, of a bond or security in lieu of a cash 
deposit for each entry of the merchandise exported by Kroman in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(e). Because Kroman certified that it 
both produced and exported the subject merchandise, the sale of which 
is the basis for this new shipper review request, we will permit the 
bonding privilege only for those entries of subject merchandise for 
which Kroman is both the producer and the exporter.
    Interested parties may submit applications for disclosure under 
administrative protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 
351.306.
    This initiation and notice are in accordance with section
