This rate will be assessed uniformly on all Patagonik/ Colmenares entries of that particular importer made during the POR. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of review. Cash Deposit At the initiation of this review, the Department issued cash deposit instructions based on the certifications that Patagonik was the exporter and that CSR was the supplier of subject merchandise. The Department has since determined that Patagonik and CSR are affiliated and, furthermore, that the Department should treat Patagonik and CSR as a single entity for purposes of this new shipper review. final, the combination from the cash deposit instructions issued at initiation will no longer apply. The See Collapsing and Affiliation Memorandum. As such, if this preliminary determination becomes Department would typically apply the combination cash deposit rate to the Patagonik/CSR entity and the producers who supplied Patagonik/CSR during the POR. However, in this particular instance, the number of producers in the form of unaffiliated beekeepers which supplied CSR/Patagonik during the POR is voluminous. The Preamble to the Department’s regulations states ‘‘it may not be practicable to establish combination rates when there are a large number of producers, such as in certain agricultural cases.’’ Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties: Final Rule, 62 FR 27296, 27303 (May 19, 1997). The Department believes the unique circumstances envisaged in the Preamble are present in this particular review. Therefore the Department preliminarily determines that the numerous producers in this case make it impracticable to apply a combination rate. The following cash-deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this new shipper review for all shipments of the subject merchandise from Patagonik/CSR, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act. For shipments of subject merchandise exported by Patagonik/CSR, the cash deposit rate shall be the rate determined in the final results of the review.

Background

    On August 1, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published in the Federal Register the notice of initiation of its 
sunset review of the antidumping duty order on certain hot-rolled 
carbon steel flat products from the Netherlands. See Initiation of 
Five-Year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 71 FR 43443 (August 1, 2006).
    The Department received a Notice of Intent to Participate from 
Corus Staal BV on August 8, 2006. Corus Staal BV claimed interested 
party status as a foreign producer, under Section 771(9)(A) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), 19 U.S.C. 1677(9)(A), and 
19 CFR 351.102(b). The following domestic interested parties each 
submitted a Notice of Intent to Participate, all within the deadline 
specified in section 351.218(d)(1)(i) of the Department's regulations, 
identifying themselves as interested parties under 771(9)(c) of the 
Act: Nucor Corporation (August 10, 2006); Gallatin Steel, IPSCO Steel, 
Inc., and Steel Dynamics, Inc. (August 15, 2006); Mittal Steel USA 
(August 16, 2006); United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, 
Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers 
International Union, AFL-CIO-CLC (August 16, 2006); and United States 
Steel Corporation (August 16, 2006).
    The Department received a complete and timely joint substantive 
response from certain domestic interested parties (United States Steel 
Corporation, Mittal Steel USA Inc., Nucor Corporation, Gallatin Steel 
Company, Steel Dynamics Inc., and IPSCO Steel Inc.) (``Domestic 
Producers'') on August 31, 2006, within the deadline specified under 
section 351.218(d)(3)(i) of the Department's regulations. The 
Department also received a complete substantive response from Corus 
Staal BV on August 31, 2006. On September 8, 2006, the Department 
received rebuttal comments from United States Steel Corporation and 
from Corus Staal BV.
    On September 20, 2006, the Department determined that Domestic 
Producers' and Corus Staal BV's August 31, 2006, submissions 
constituted adequate responses to the notice of initiation, in 
accordance with sections 351.218(e)(1)(i) and (ii) of the Department's 
regulations. See Sunset Review of Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat 
Products from the Netherlands: Adequacy of Domestic and Respondent 
Interested Party Responses to the Notice of Initiation. As a result, 
the Department determined, in accordance with section 351.218(e)(2) of 
its regulations, to conduct a full (240- day) review.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary and Final Results of Review

    The Act provides for the completion of a full sunset review within 
240 days of the publication of the initiation notice. See section 
751(c)(5)(A) of the Act. In accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B) of the 
Act, the Department may extend the period of time for making its 
determination by not more

than 90 days, if it determines that the review is extraordinarily 
complicated. We determine that this review is extraordinarily 
complicated, pursuant to sections 751(c)(5)(C) (i) and (ii) of the Act, 
because there are a large number of issues, some of which are complex. 
The parties filed comments raising various issues which require 
additional time for analysis, including the relevance of recent World 
Trade Organization decisions and the Department's duty absorption 
analysis in the concurrent administrative review.
    The Department's preliminary results of the sunset review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat products 
from the Netherlands are currently scheduled for November 19, 2006 and 
the final results are currently scheduled for March 29, 2007. However, 
the Department will extend the deadlines in this proceeding for the 
above-stated reasons. As a result, the Department intends to issue the 
preliminary results of the full sunset review by February 12, 2007, and 
the final results of that review by June 22, 2007. These dates are 85 
days from the original scheduled dates of the preliminary and final 
results of the sunset review.
    This notice is issued in accordance with sections 751(c)(5)(B) and 
(C) of the Act.
