No comments were received. Scope of the Order Merchandise covered by the order is shipments of stainless steel bar (‘‘SSB’’). SSB means articles of stainless steel in straight lengths that have been either hot–rolled, forged, turned, cold–drawn, cold–rolled or otherwise cold–finished, or ground, having a uniform solid cross section along their whole length in the shape of circles, segments of circles, PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 37905 ovals, rectangles (including squares), triangles, hexagons, octagons, or other convex polygons. SSB includes cold– finished SSBs that are turned or ground in straight lengths, whether produced from hot–rolled bar or from straightened and cut rod or wire, and reinforcing bars that have indentations, ribs, grooves, or other deformations produced during the rolling process. Except as specified above, the term does not include stainless steel semi– finished products, cut–to-length flat– rolled products (i.e., cut–to-length rolled products which if less than 4.75 mm in thickness have a width measuring at least 10 times the thickness, or if 4.75 mm or more in thickness having a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least twice the thickness), wire (i.e., cold–formed products in coils, of any uniform solid cross section along their whole length, which do not conform to the definition of flat–rolled products), and angles, shapes, and sections. The SSB subject to these reviews is currently classifiable under subheadings 7222.11.00.05, 7222.11.00.50, 7222.19.00.05, 7222.19.00.50, 7222.20.00.05, 7222.20.00.45, 7222.20.00.75, and 7222.30.00.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. On May 23, 2005, the Department issued a final scope ruling that SSB manufactured in the United Arab Emirates out of stainless steel wire rod from India is not subject to the scope of this proceeding. See Memorandum to Barbara E. Tillman, Antidumping Duty Orders on Stainless Steel Bar from India and Stainless Steel Wire Rod from India: Final Scope Ruling (May 23, 2005). The ruling is on file in the Central Records Unit, Room B–099 of the main Department building (‘‘CRU’’). Period of Review The period of review (‘‘POR’’) is February 1, 2004, through January 31, 2005. Partial Rescission of Review According to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), the Department will rescind an administrative review in whole or only with respect to a particular exporter or producer, if we conclude that, during the POR, there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise, as the case may be. In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily found that Ferro Alloys Corporation, Ltd. (‘‘Facor’’) reported no entries of E:\FR\FM\03JYN1.SGM 03JYN1 37906 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 127 / Monday, July 3, 2006 / Notices subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, a fact which the Department confirmed by conducting an inquiry with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’). Therefore, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), and consistent with the Preliminary Results, we are rescinding this review with respect to Facor. Final Results of the Review These final results remain unchanged from the Preliminary Results. We provided an opportunity for parties to comment on our preliminary results and received no comments. Therefore, we find that the following percentage margin exists for the period February 1, 2004, through January 31, 2005: Exporter/Manufacturer Chandan Steel, Ltd. ...... Margin 21.02 sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Assessment Rates The Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For Chandan, we will instruct CBP to liquidate entries at the rate indicated above. The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to the CBP within 15 days of publication of these final results of review. In accordance with the Department’s clarification of its assessment policy (see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003)), in the event any entries were made during the period of review through intermediaries under the CBP case number for Facor, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the all–others rate in effect on the date of entry. Cash Deposit Rates The following antidumping duty deposits will be required on all shipments of SSB from India entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, effective on or after the publication date of these final results of administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) the cash deposit rates for the reviewed company will be the rate listed above (except no cash deposit will be required if a company’s weighted–average margin is de minimis, i.e., less than 0.5 percent); (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company–specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, the previous review, or the original investigation, but the VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:12 Jun 30, 2006 Jkt 208001 manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered in this or any previous reviews, the cash deposit rate will be 12.45 percent, the ‘‘all others’’ rate established in the less than fair value investigation. See Stainless Steel Bar from India; Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 59 FR 66915 (December 28, 1994). These cash deposit requirements shall remain in effect until publication of the final results of the next administrative review. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final 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 doubled antidumping duties. Notification Regarding APOs This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (‘‘APOs’’) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Since the publication of the preliminary results of this review 
(see Stainless Steel Bar from India: Notice of Preliminary Results and 
Preliminary Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, 71 FR 11390 (March 7, 2006) (``Preliminary Results'')), the 
following events have occurred: the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') invited interested parties to comment on the preliminary 
results of this review. No comments were received.

Scope of the Order

    Merchandise covered by the order is shipments of stainless steel 
bar (``SSB''). SSB means articles of stainless steel in straight 
lengths that have been either hot-rolled, forged, turned, cold-drawn, 
cold-rolled or otherwise cold-finished, or ground, having a uniform 
solid cross section along their whole length in the shape of circles, 
segments of circles, ovals, rectangles (including squares), triangles, 
hexagons, octagons, or other convex polygons. SSB includes cold-
finished SSBs that are turned or ground in straight lengths, whether 
produced from hot-rolled bar or from straightened and cut rod or wire, 
and reinforcing bars that have indentations, ribs, grooves, or other 
deformations produced during the rolling process.
    Except as specified above, the term does not include stainless 
steel semi-finished products, cut-to-length flat-rolled products (i.e., 
cut-to-length rolled products which if less than 4.75 mm in thickness 
have a width measuring at least 10 times the thickness, or if 4.75 mm 
or more in thickness having a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures 
at least twice the thickness), wire (i.e., cold-formed products in 
coils, of any uniform solid cross section along their whole length, 
which do not conform to the definition of flat-rolled products), and 
angles, shapes, and sections.
    The SSB subject to these reviews is currently classifiable under 
subheadings 7222.11.00.05, 7222.11.00.50, 7222.19.00.05, 7222.19.00.50, 
7222.20.00.05, 7222.20.00.45, 7222.20.00.75, and 7222.30.00.00 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS''). Although 
the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs 
purposes, our written description of the scope of the order is 
dispositive.
    On May 23, 2005, the Department issued a final scope ruling that 
SSB manufactured in the United Arab Emirates out of stainless steel 
wire rod from India is not subject to the scope of this proceeding. See 
Memorandum to Barbara E. Tillman, Antidumping Duty Orders on Stainless 
Steel Bar from India and Stainless Steel Wire Rod from India: Final 
Scope Ruling (May 23, 2005). The ruling is on file in the Central 
Records Unit, Room B-099 of the main Department building (``CRU'').

Period of Review

    The period of review (``POR'') is February 1, 2004, through January 
31, 2005.

Partial Rescission of Review

    According to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), the Department will rescind an 
administrative review in whole or only with respect to a particular 
exporter or producer, if we conclude that, during the POR, there were 
no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise, as the case 
may be. In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily found 
that Ferro Alloys Corporation, Ltd. (``Facor'') reported no entries of

[[Page 37906]]

subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, a fact which 
the Department confirmed by conducting an inquiry with U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (``CBP''). Therefore, pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(3), and consistent with the Preliminary Results, we are 
rescinding this review with respect to Facor.

Final Results of the Review

    These final results remain unchanged from the Preliminary Results. 
We provided an opportunity for parties to comment on our preliminary 
results and received no comments. Therefore, we find that the following 
percentage margin exists for the period February 1, 2004, through 
January 31, 2005:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Exporter/Manufacturer                       Margin
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chandan Steel, Ltd..................................               21.02
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    The Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries. For Chandan, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate entries at the rate indicated above. The Department will 
issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to the CBP within 15 
days of publication of these final results of review.
    In accordance with the Department's clarification of its assessment 
policy (see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003)), in the event any 
entries were made during the period of review through intermediaries 
under the CBP case number for Facor, the Department will instruct CBP 
to liquidate such entries at the all-others rate in effect on the date 
of entry.

Cash Deposit Rates

    The following antidumping duty deposits will be required on all 
shipments of SSB from India entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption, effective on or after the publication date of these final 
results of administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(1) of 
the Act: (1) the cash deposit rates for the reviewed company will be 
the rate listed above (except no cash deposit will be required if a 
company's weighted-average margin is de minimis, i.e., less than 0.5 
percent); (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, the previous review, or the 
original investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate established for the most recent period for the 
manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) if neither the exporter nor 
the manufacturer is a firm covered in this or any previous reviews, the 
cash deposit rate will be 12.45 percent, the ``all others'' rate 
established in the less than fair value investigation. See Stainless 
Steel Bar from India; Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair 
Value, 59 FR 66915 (December 28, 1994). These cash deposit requirements 
shall remain in effect until publication of the final results of the 
next administrative review.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final 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 doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding APOs

    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``APOs'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues 
to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of 
APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO 
is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    We are issuing and publishing these results of review in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
