SUMMARY: In response to a request from a domestic interested party, Nucor Corporation (Nucor), the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain hot– rolled carbon steel flat products (hot– rolled steel) from Brazil. This review covers two manufacturer/exporters of the subject merchandise, Companhia Siderurgica Nacional (CSN) and Companhia Siderurgica de Tubarao (CST). The Department is now rescinding this review based on record evidence indicating that the respondents had no entries of subject merchandise during the period of review (POR). The POR is March 1, 2005, through February 28, 2006. EFFECTIVE DATE: July 13, 2006.

See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order and of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Hot–Rolled Flat–Rolled Carbon Quality Steel Products from Brazil, 67 FR 11093 (March 12, 2002). On March 2, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of opportunity to request administrative reviews. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 71 FR 10642 (March 2, 2006). On March 31, 2006, Nucor Corporation requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of sales of hot– rolled steel produced and exported by CSN and CST. On April 28, 2006, the Department published a notice of initiation of this administrative review. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 25145 (April 28, 2006). On May 4 and 17, 2006, respectively, CSN and CST submitted no–shipment certification letters to the Department indicating that they had no U.S. sales or entries of hot– rolled steel during the POR and requesting rescission of the administrative review. On June 5, 2006, the Department solicited comments from Wiley Rein & Fielding LLP, counsel for Nucor Corporation, stating the Department’s intention to rescind the review with respect to CSN and CST. The Department requested that any comments regarding the intention to rescind be submitted by June 12, 2006. We received no comments.

Furthermore, we sent a no–shipments inquiry to CBP on June 16, 2006.

Because the evidence on the record shows that there were no entries of hot– rolled steel made by CSN or CST during the POR, the Department is rescinding this review in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).

Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and CBP 
purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is

Rescission of Review

    On May 4 and May 17, 2006, respectively, both CSN and CST informed 
the Department that they did not ship hot-rolled steel to the United 
States during the POR, and requested that we rescind the administrative 
review. On June 2, 2006, the Department conducted an internal customs 
data query using the Customs and Border Protection's (CBP) Automated 
Commercial System (ACS). On June 5, 2006, the Department invited Wiley 
Rein & Fielding LLP, counsel for Nucor, to submit comments regarding 
the Department's intention to rescind the review with regard to CSN and 
CST. Furthermore, we sent a no-shipments inquiry to CBP on June 16, 
2006.
    The Department did not receive comments from Wiley Rein & Fielding 
LLP regarding our intention to rescind the review with regard to CSN 
and CST. Additionally, the Department found no entries from either CSN 
or CST based on our internal customs query and our no-shipments inquiry 
sent to CBP. Accordingly, the Department has found no evidence that CSN 
or CST had any entries of hot-rolled steel during the POR. Therefore, 
we are rescinding this administrative review.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), the Department may rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or with respect to a particular 
exporter or producer, if the Secretary concludes that, during the 
period covered by the review, there were no entries, exports, or sales 
of the subject merchandise. Because the evidence on the record shows 
that there were no entries of hot-rolled steel made by CSN or CST 
during the POR, the Department is rescinding this review in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). The Department will issue appropriate 
assessment instructions to CBP within 15 days of publication of this 
notice.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(4).
