SUMMARY: On March 7, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of its third administrative review of the antidumping duty order on low enriched uranium (LEU) from France. The review covers one producer of the subject merchandise. The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2004 through January 31, 2005. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made changes to the preliminary results. For the final dumping margins see the ‘‘Final Results of Review’’ section below. EFFECTIVE DATE: September 5, 2006. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mark Hoadley or Myrna Lobo, AD/CVD Operations, Office 6, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street & Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–3148 or (202) 482– 2371, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On March 7, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of the third administrative review of the antidumping duty order on LEU from France. See Low Enriched Uranium From France: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 11386 (March 7, 2006) (Preliminary Results). Since the Preliminary Results the following events have occurred. As noted in the Preliminary Results, in accordance with section 773(f)(3) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and section 351.407(b) of our regulations, we decided to conduct an analysis to determine whether the respondent’s purchases of electricity ´ ´ from its affiliated supplier, Electricite de France (EdF), were made at prices below the cost of production (COP) during the POR. See Memorandum to Barbara E. Tillman from Mark Hoadley, Petitioners’ Allegation of Purchases of a Major Input ´ From Electricite de France (EdF), an Affiliated Party, at Prices Below the Affiliated Party’s Cost of Production, E:\FR\FM\05SEN1.SGM 05SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 171 / Tuesday, September 5, 2006 / Notices sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES dated January 25, 2006. Subsequent to respondent’s initial response concerning this major input, the Department issued a supplemental questionnaire on March 16, 2006, seeking clarification on EdF’s COP information. A timely response was received on March 30, 2006. On May 1, 2006, we received case briefs from the sole respondent, Eurodif S.A., AREVA NC (formerly Compagnie ´ ´ ´ ´ Generale Des Matieres Nucleaires, S.A.) and AREVA NC Inc. (formerly COGEMA, Inc.) (collectively, Eurodif/ AREVA, the respondent), and the petitioner, the United States Enrichment Corporation and USEC Inc. (collectively, USEC). Eurodif/AREVA and USEC submitted their rebuttal briefs on May 9, 2006. The petitioner requested a hearing on May 2, 2006, but withdrew its request on May 9, 2006. On July 7, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice extending the deadline for the final results from July 5, 2006 to August 21, 2006. See Low Enriched Uranium from France: Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 38611 (July 7, 2006). Scope of the Order The product covered by this order is all low enriched uranium (LEU). LEU is enriched uranium hexafluoride (UF6) with a U235 product assay of less than 20 percent that has not been converted into another chemical form, such as UO2, or fabricated into nuclear fuel assemblies, regardless of the means by which the LEU is produced (including LEU produced through the downblending of highly enriched uranium). Certain merchandise is outside the scope of this order. Specifically, this order does not cover enriched uranium hexafluoride with a U235 assay of 20 percent or greater, also known as highly enriched uranium. In addition, fabricated LEU is not covered by the scope of this order. For purposes of this order, fabricated uranium is defined as enriched uranium dioxide (UO2), whether or not contained in nuclear fuel rods or assemblies. Natural uranium concentrates (U3O8) with a U235 concentration of no greater than 0.711 percent and natural uranium concentrates converted into uranium hexafluoride with a U235 concentration of no greater than 0.711 percent are not covered by the scope of this order. Also excluded from this order is LEU owned by a foreign utility end-user and imported into the United States by or for such end-user solely for purposes of conversion by a U.S. fabricator into uranium dioxide (UO2) and/or fabrication into fuel assemblies so long VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:24 Sep 01, 2006 Jkt 208001 as the uranium dioxide and/or fuel assemblies deemed to incorporate such imported LEU (i) remain in the possession and control of the U.S. fabricator, the foreign end-user, or their designed transporter(s) while in U.S. customs territory, and (ii) are reexported within eighteen (18) months of entry of the LEU for consumption by the end-user in a nuclear reactor outside the United States. Such entries must be accompanied by the certifications of the importer and end-user. The merchandise subject to this order is currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) at subheading 2844.20.0020. Subject merchandise may also enter under 2844.20.0030, 2844.20.0050, and 2844.40.00. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise is dispositive. Analysis of Comments Received The issues raised in all case and rebuttal briefs by parties to this administrative review are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum to David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, from Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration (Decision Memorandum), which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues addressed in the Decision Memorandum is appended to this notice. The Decision Memorandum is on file in the Central Records Unit (CRU), and can be accessed directly on the Web at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn. The paper copy and electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of comments received, we have made adjustments to our margin calculations. The adjustments are discussed in detail in the Decision Memorandum. Final Results of Review As a result of our review, we determine that the following weightedaverage margin exists for the period February 1, 2004 through January 31, 2005: Manufacturer/Exporter Margin (percent) Eurodif/AREVA ............. 14.60 Assessment The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52319 on all appropriate entries, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b). The Department calculated importer-specific duty assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of the examined sales for that importer. The Department will not issue liquidation instructions for any entries of Eurodif merchandise until such time as the July 1, 2002 injunction issued by the Court of International Trade is lifted. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003 (68 FR 23954). This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the period of review produced by the company included in these final results of review 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. For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). Cash Deposits The following deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of LEU from France entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of these final results, as provided by section 751(a) of the Act: (1) for Eurodif/AREVA, the cash deposit rate will be the rate listed above; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not covered in this review but covered in a previous segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company–specific rate published in the most recent final results in which that producer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review or in any previous segment of this proceeding, but the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be that established for the producer of the merchandise in these final results of review or in the most recent final results in which that producer participated; and (4) if neither the exporter nor the producer is a firm covered in this review or in any previous segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will be 19.95 percent, the ‘‘all others’’ rate established in the investigation.

Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred, and in the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. VerDate Aug<31>2005 Comment 11: Correction to Net U.S. Price Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Tariff Act), requires the Department to issue the final results of an administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results were published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the final results to 180 days from the date of publication of the preliminary results. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete this review within the original time frame due to a number of significant case issues, including the calculation of parent company interest expenses and general and administrative expenses. Furthermore, additional time is necessary for the Department to analyze PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 certain adjustments made to U.S. price and to evaluate the commercial transactions between Mexinox and affiliated parties.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On March 7, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register 
the preliminary results of the third administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on LEU from France. See Low Enriched Uranium 
From France: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, 71 FR 11386 (March 7, 2006) (Preliminary Results).
    Since the Preliminary Results the following events have occurred. 
As noted in the Preliminary Results, in accordance with section 
773(f)(3) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and section 
351.407(b) of our regulations, we decided to conduct an analysis to 
determine whether the respondent's purchases of electricity from its 
affiliated supplier, [Eacute]lectricit[eacute] de France (EdF), were 
made at prices below the cost of production (COP) during the POR. See 
Memorandum to Barbara E. Tillman from Mark Hoadley, Petitioners' 
Allegation of Purchases of a Major Input From Electricit[eacute] de 
France (EdF), an Affiliated Party, at Prices Below the Affiliated 
Party's Cost of Production,

[[Page 52319]]

dated January 25, 2006. Subsequent to respondent's initial response 
concerning this major input, the Department issued a supplemental 
questionnaire on March 16, 2006, seeking clarification on EdF's COP 
information. A timely response was received on March 30, 2006.
    On May 1, 2006, we received case briefs from the sole respondent, 
Eurodif S.A., AREVA NC (formerly Compagnie G[eacute]n[eacute]rale Des 
Mati[eacute]res Nucl[eacute]aires, S.A.) and AREVA NC Inc. (formerly 
COGEMA, Inc.) (collectively, Eurodif/AREVA, the respondent), and the 
petitioner, the United States Enrichment Corporation and USEC Inc. 
(collectively, USEC). Eurodif/AREVA and USEC submitted their rebuttal 
briefs on May 9, 2006. The petitioner requested a hearing on May 2, 
2006, but withdrew its request on May 9, 2006.
    On July 7, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register a 
notice extending the deadline for the final results from July 5, 2006 
to August 21, 2006. See Low Enriched Uranium from France: Extension of 
Time Limit for Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 
71 FR 38611 (July 7, 2006).

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by this order is all low enriched uranium 
(LEU). LEU is enriched uranium hexafluoride (UF[bdi6]) with a 
U[bdi2][bdi3][bdi5] product assay of less than 20 percent that has not 
been converted into another chemical form, such as UO[bdi2], or 
fabricated into nuclear fuel assemblies, regardless of the means by 
which the LEU is produced (including LEU produced through the down-
blending of highly enriched uranium).
    Certain merchandise is outside the scope of this order. 
Specifically, this order does not cover enriched uranium hexafluoride 
with a U[bdi2][bdi3][bdi5] assay of 20 percent or greater, also known 
as highly enriched uranium. In addition, fabricated LEU is not covered 
by the scope of this order. For purposes of this order, fabricated 
uranium is defined as enriched uranium dioxide (UO[bdi2]), whether or 
not contained in nuclear fuel rods or assemblies. Natural uranium 
concentrates (U[bdi3]O[bdi8]) with a U[bdi2][bdi3][bdi5] concentration 
of no greater than 0.711 percent and natural uranium concentrates 
converted into uranium hexafluoride with a U[bdi2][bdi3][bdi5] 
concentration of no greater than 0.711 percent are not covered by the 
scope of this order.
    Also excluded from this order is LEU owned by a foreign utility 
end-user and imported into the United States by or for such end-user 
solely for purposes of conversion by a U.S. fabricator into uranium 
dioxide (UO[bdi2]) and/or fabrication into fuel assemblies so long as 
the uranium dioxide and/or fuel assemblies deemed to incorporate such 
imported LEU (i) remain in the possession and control of the U.S. 
fabricator, the foreign end-user, or their designed transporter(s) 
while in U.S. customs territory, and (ii) are re-exported within 
eighteen (18) months of entry of the LEU for consumption by the end-
user in a nuclear reactor outside the United States. Such entries must 
be accompanied by the certifications of the importer and end-user.
    The merchandise subject to this order is currently classifiable in 
the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) at 
subheading 2844.20.0020. Subject merchandise may also enter under 
2844.20.0030, 2844.20.0050, and 2844.40.00. Although the HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written description of the merchandise is dispositive.

Analysis of Comments Received

    The issues raised in all case and rebuttal briefs by parties to 
this administrative review are addressed in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum to David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import 
Administration, from Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for 
Import Administration (Decision Memorandum), which is hereby adopted by 
this notice. A list of the issues addressed in the Decision Memorandum 
is appended to this notice. The Decision Memorandum is on file in the 
Central Records Unit (CRU), and can be accessed directly on the Web at 
http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn. The paper copy and electronic version of the 
Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of comments received, we have made 
adjustments to our margin calculations. The adjustments are discussed 
in detail in the Decision Memorandum.

Final Results of Review

    As a result of our review, we determine that the following 
weighted-average margin exists for the period February 1, 2004 through 
January 31, 2005:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Manufacturer/Exporter                  Margin (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Eurodif/AREVA.......................................               14.60
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment

    The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b). The Department calculated 
importer-specific duty assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of 
the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined 
sales to the total entered value of the examined sales for that 
importer. The Department will not issue liquidation instructions for 
any entries of Eurodif merchandise until such time as the July 1, 2002 
injunction issued by the Court of International Trade is lifted.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003 (68 FR 23954). This clarification will apply to entries of 
subject merchandise during the period of review produced by the company 
included in these final results of review 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. For a full discussion of this 
clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

Cash Deposits

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of LEU from France entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the publication date of these final results, as 
provided by section 751(a) of the Act: (1) for Eurodif/AREVA, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate listed above; (2) for merchandise 
exported by producers or exporters not covered in this review but 
covered in a previous segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate 
will continue to be the company-specific rate published in the most 
recent final results in which that producer or exporter participated; 
(3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review or in any 
previous segment of this proceeding, but the producer is, the cash 
deposit rate will be that established for the producer of the 
merchandise in these final results of review or in the most recent 
final results in which that producer participated; and (4) if neither 
the exporter nor the producer is a firm covered in this review or in 
any previous segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will be 
19.95 percent, the ``all others'' rate established in the 
investigation. See Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 in the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice is the only reminder to parties subject to the 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely 
written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to 
comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these final results and this notice 
in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: August 21, 2006.
David M. Spooner,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
