On December 30, 2005 and January 3, 2006, Nucor Corporation and U.S. Steel Corporation (collectively, petitioners), respectively, requested an administrative review of the above–referenced antidumping order with respect to Essar. On February 1, 2006, the Department initiated the requested administrative review. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 5241 (February 1, 2006). On February 10, 2006, Essar submitted a letter to the Department in which it certified that it made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. On July 14, 2006, the Department published notification of its intent to rescind the instant review in the Federal Register. See Certain Hot– Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products From India: Notice of Intent to Rescind Administrative Review, 71 FR 40068 (July 14, 2006) (Intent to Rescind). The Department stated in that notice that it intended to rescind the instant administrative review of Essar because U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data supported the conclusion that there were no entries, exports, or sales of subject merchandise from Essar. The Department provided interested parties an opportunity to comment on the rescission and received no comments. Scope of the Order The products covered by the antidumping duty order are certain hot– rolled carbon steel flat products of a rectangular shape, of a width of 0.5 inch or greater, neither clad, plated, nor coated with metal and whether or not painted, varnished, or coated with E:\FR\FM\16OCN1.SGM 16OCN1 jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES 60690 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 199 / Monday, October 16, 2006 / Notices plastics or other non–metallic substances, in coils (whether or not in successively superimposed layers), regardless of thickness, and in straight lengths, of a thickness of less than 4.75 mm and of a width measuring at least 10 times the thickness. Universal mill plate (i.e., flat–rolled products rolled on four faces or in a closed box pass, of a width exceeding 150 mm, but not exceeding 1250 mm, and of a thickness of not less than 4.0 mm, not in coils and without patterns in relief) of a thickness not less than 4.0 mm is not included within the scope of the order. Specifically included within the scope of the order are vacuum degassed, fully stabilized (commonly referred to as interstitial–free (IF)) steels, high strength low alloy (HSLA) steels, and the substrate for motor lamination steels. IF steels are recognized as low carbon steels with micro–alloying levels of elements such as titanium or niobium (also commonly referred to as columbium), or both, added to stabilize carbon and nitrogen elements. HSLA steels are recognized as steels with micro–alloying levels of elements such as chromium, copper, niobium, vanadium, and molybdenum.

Rescission of Administrative Review In accordance with 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 Department concludes that, during the period covered by the review, there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise. Because Essar was the only company for which a review was requested and it did not have any sales or exports of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, we are rescinding this review pursuant to 19 CFR § 351.213(d)(3). See, e.g., Certain Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars From Turkey; Final Results, Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review in Part, and Determination not to Revoke in Part, 68 FR 53127 (September 9, 2003) (after finding no evidence of entries of subject merchandise from two companies that made ‘‘no shipments’’ claims, the Department stated that ‘‘consistent with our practice, we are rescinding our review for Diler and Ekinciler’’). Although Essar did not have any sales or exports of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, its subject merchandise may have entered the United States during the POR under CBP’s antidumping case number for Essar by way of intermediaries (without Essar’s knowledge). Within 15 days of publication of this notice, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the ‘‘all– others’’ rate in effect on the date of the entry. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

Rescission of Administrative Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR Sec.  351.213(d)(3), the Department may 
rescind an administrative review, in whole or with respect to a 
particular exporter or producer, if the Department concludes that, 
during the period covered by the review, there were no entries, 
exports, or sales of the subject merchandise. Because Essar was the 
only company for which a review was requested and it did not have any 
sales or exports of subject merchandise to the United States during the 
POR, we are rescinding this review pursuant to 19 CFR Sec.  
351.213(d)(3). See, e.g., Certain Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars From 
Turkey; Final Results, Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review in Part, and Determination not to Revoke in Part, 68 FR 53127 
(September 9, 2003) (after finding no evidence of entries of subject 
merchandise from two companies that made ``no shipments'' claims, the 
Department stated that ``consistent with our practice, we are 
rescinding our review for Diler and Ekinciler''). Although Essar did 
not have any sales or exports of subject merchandise to the United 
States during the POR, its subject merchandise may have entered the 
United States during the POR under CBP's antidumping case number for 
Essar by way of intermediaries (without Essar's knowledge). Within 15 
days of publication of this notice, the Department will instruct CBP to 
liquidate such entries at the ``all-others'' rate in effect on the date 
of the entry. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

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 sanctionable 
violation.
