ACTION: Notice of determination. AGENCY: DATES: Effective Date: December 28, sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES 2006. SUMMARY: Section 7 of the Steel Trade Liberalization Program Implementation Act of 1989 (‘‘the Act’’), as amended (19 U.S.C. 2703 note), which concerns local feedstock requirements for fuel ethyl alcohol imported by the United States from CBERA-beneficiary countries, requires the Commission to determine annually the U.S. domestic market for fuel ethyl alcohol during the 12-month VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:29 Jan 04, 2007 Jkt 211001 period ending on the preceding September 30. The domestic market determination made by the Commission is to be used to establish the ‘‘base quantity’’ of imports that can be imported with a zero percent local feedstock requirement. The base quantity to be used by the U.S. Customs Service in the administration of the law is the greater of 60 million gallons or 7 percent of U.S. consumption as determined by the Commission. Beyond the base quantity of imports, progressively higher local feedstock requirements are placed on imports of fuel ethyl alcohol and mixtures from the CBERA-beneficiary countries. For the 12-month period ending September 30, 2006, the Commission has determined the level of U.S. consumption of fuel ethyl alcohol to be 5.03 billion gallons. Seven percent of this amount is 351.8 million gallons (these figures have been rounded). Therefore, the base quantity for 2007 should be 351.8 million gallons.
