Download as PDF 52062 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 170 / Friday, September 1, 2006 / Notices Antidumping Duty Proceedings Period Suspension Agreements. None.. In accordance with section 351.213(b) of the regulations, an interested party as defined by section 771(9) of the Act may request in writing that the Secretary conduct an administrative review. For both antidumping and countervailing duty reviews, the interested party must specify the individual producers or exporters covered by an antidumping finding or an antidumping or countervailing duty order or suspension agreement for which it is requesting a review, and the requesting party must state why it desires the Secretary to review those particular producers or exporters.2 If the interested party intends for the Secretary to review sales of merchandise by an exporter (or a producer if that producer also exports merchandise from other suppliers) which were produced in more than one country of origin and each country of origin is subject to a separate order, then the interested party must state specifically, on an order–by-order basis, which exporter(s) the request is intended to cover. As explained in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003), the Department has clarified its practice with respect to the collection of final antidumping duties on imports of merchandise where intermediate firms are involved. The public should be aware of this clarification in determining whether to request an administrative review of merchandise subject to antidumping findings and orders. See also the Import Administration Web site at http:// ia.ita.doc.gov. Six copies of the request should be submitted to the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Room 1870, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street & Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230. The Department also asks parties to serve a copy of their requests to the Office of Antidumping/ Countervailing Operations, Attention: Sheila Forbes, in room 3065 of the main Commerce Building. Further, in accordance with section 351.303(f)(l)(i) of the regulations, a copy of each request must be served on every party on the Department’s service list. The Department will publish in the Federal Register a notice of ‘‘Initiation of Administrative Review of Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation’’ for requests received by the last day of September 2006. If the Department does not receive, by the last day of September 2006, a request for review of entries covered by an order, finding, or suspended investigation listed in this notice and for the period identified above, the Department will instruct the U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess antidumping or countervailing duties on those entries at a rate equal to the cash deposit of (or bond for) estimated antidumping or countervailing duties required on those entries at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption and to continue to collect the cash deposit previously ordered. This notice is not required by statute but is published as a service to the international trading community. Dated: August 23, 2006. Thomas F. Futtner, Acting Office Director, AD/CVD Operations, Office 4, Import Administration. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 28, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) published in the Federal Register the final results of the third administrative review of stainless steel bar from Germany.1 This review covered the period March 1, 2004, through February 28, 2005. On July 31, 2006, Carpenter Technology Corp., Crucible Specialty Metals Division of Crucible Materials Corp., and Electralloy Corp. (collectively, ‘‘petitioners’’) submitted ministerial error allegations filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(c). On August 7, 2006, BGH Edelstahl Freital GmbH, BGH Edelstahl Lippendorf GmbH, BGH Edelstahl Lugau GmbH, and BGH Edelstahl Siegen GmbH (collectively, ‘‘BGH’’) submitted rebuttal comments. Based on these submissions, we made changes to the margin calculation of BGH. The amended final weighted–average dumping margin for BGH is listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Amended Final Results.’’ Scope of the Order Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce. For the purposes of the order, the term ‘‘stainless steel bar’’ includes 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. Stainless steel bar includes cold–finished stainless steel bars 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 length flat–rolled products (i.e., cut length rolled products which if less than 4.75 mm in thickness 1 See Stainless Steel Bar from Germany: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 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), products that have been cut from stainless steel sheet, strip or plate, 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), angles, shapes and sections. The stainless steel bar subject to this review 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, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Amended Final Results After analyzing the submissions, we have determined in accordance with section 735(e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’) and 19 CFR 351.224 that we made ministerial errors in the margin calculation for BGH. The ministerial errors affected the U.S. credit expense calculation. These errors were: 1) the Department did not recalculate the credit expense after revising the payment date for some U.S. sales, 2) the Department incorrectly used a U.S. dollar interest rate on U.S. sales that were made in euros, and 3) the Department’s programming language did not properly apply the revised U.S. interest rate to all U.S. sales made in U.S. dollars. For a detailed discussion of the ministerial error allegations and the Department’s analysis, see Memorandum from Team through Susan H. Kuhbach to Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, entitled ‘‘Ministerial Error Allegations,’’ dated August 28, 2006. We are amending the final determination of the antidumping duty administrative review of stainless steel bar from Germany to reflect the correction of the above–cited ministerial errors. As a result of corrections of the ministerial errors in the Final Results, the revised final weighted–average dumping margin is as follows: Review, 71 FR 42802 (July 28, 2006) (‘‘Final Results’’).
