Download as PDF 101 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 1 / Wednesday, January 3, 2007 / Notices with the Department’s regulations regarding format, translation, service, and certification of documents. These rules can be found at 19 CFR 351.303. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.103(c), the Department will maintain and make available a service list for these proceedings. To facilitate the timely preparation of the service list(s), it is requested that those seeking recognition as interested parties to a proceeding contact the Department in writing within 10 days of the publication of the Notice of Initiation.Because deadlines in Sunset Reviews can be very short, we urge interested parties to apply for access to proprietary information under administrative protective order (‘‘APO’’) immediately following publication in the Federal Register of the notice of initiation of the sunset review. The Department’s regulations on submission of proprietary information and eligibility to receive access to business proprietary information under APO can be found at 19 CFR 351.304–306. Information Required from Interested Parties Domestic interested parties (defined in section 771(9)(C), (D), (E), (F), and (G) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.102(b)) wishing to participate in these Sunset Reviews must respond not later than 15 days after the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of initiation by filing a notice of intent to participate. The required contents of the notice of intent to participate are set forth at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(ii). In accordance with the Department’s regulations, if we do not receive a notice of intent to participate from at least one domestic interested party by the 15-day deadline, the Department will automatically revoke the orders without further review. See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii). For sunset reviews of countervailing duty orders, parties wishing the Department to consider arguments that countervailable subsidy programs have been terminated must include with their substantive responses information and documentation addressing whether the changes to the program were (1) limited to an individual firm or firms and (2) effected by an official act of the government. Further, a party claiming program termination is expected to document that there are no residual benefits under the program and that substitute programs have not been introduced. Cf. 19 CFR 351.526(b) and (d). If a party maintains that any of the subsidies countervailed by the Department were not conferred pursuant to a subsidy program, that party should nevertheless address the applicability of the factors set forth in 19 CFR 351.526(b) and (d). Similarly, parties wishing the Department to consider whether a company’s change in ownership has extinguished the benefit from prior non–recurring, allocable, subsidies must include with their substantive responses information and documentation supporting their claim that all or almost all of the company’s shares or assets were sold in an arm’s length transaction, at a price representing fair market value, as described in the Notice of Final Modification of Agency Practice Under Section 123 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act, 68 FR 37125 (June 23, 2003) (Modification Notice). See Modification Notice for a discussion of the types of information and documentation the Department requires. If we receive an order–specific notice of intent to participate from a domestic interested party, the Department’s regulations provide that all parties wishing to participate in the Sunset Review must file complete substantive responses not later than 30 days after the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of initiation. The required contents of a substantive response, on an order–specific basis, are set forth at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3). Note that certain information requirements differ for respondent and domestic parties. Also, note that the Department’s information requirements are distinct from the Commission’s information requirements.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On September 28, 2005, the U.S. Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on corrosion–resistant carbon steel flat products from Korea, covering the period August 1, 2004 to July 31, 2005. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 56631 (September 28, 2005). On September 11, 2006, the Department published the preliminary results of this review. See Certain Corrosion–Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products from the Republic of Korea: Notice of Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 53370 (September 11, 2006). The final results of this review are currently due no later than January 9, 2007. Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to issue final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the final results to a maximum of 180 days. See also 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this review within the original time limit because we need additional time to evaluate arguments and information submitted by the parties with respect to model–match methodology, indirect selling expenses, constructed export price offsets and duty drawback. Therefore, the Department is extending fully the time limit for the final results of the above–referenced review. As that date falls on a Saturday, the final results will be due no later than the next business day, Monday, March 12, 2007. This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). Dated: December 22, 2006. Gary Taverman, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
