SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On September 11, 2006, the Department published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on cut–tolength plate from Romania. See Certain Cut–to-Length Carbon Steel Plate from Romania: Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Partial Rescission, 71 FR 53377 (September 11, 2006) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). We invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. On October 11, 2006, we received case briefs from MS Galati and the domestic interested party IPSCO Steel Inc. (‘‘IPSCO’’). Additionally, on October 11, 2006, we received a letter from petitioner, Nucor Corporation (‘‘Nucor’’), stating its support for the case brief filed by IPSCO. We received rebuttal briefs from IPSCO, Nucor, and MS Galati on October 18, 2006. On October 11, 2006, MS Galati requested a public hearing in this review, but withdrew its request on October 20, 2006. Therefore, no public hearing was held. Final Partial Rescission We preliminarily determined to rescind the review with respect to MEI because we found during verification that MEI is not the producer of subject merchandise, MEI does not take title to the merchandise which MS Galati exports through MEI, and MS Galati has knowledge of the destination of its subject merchandise exports. See Preliminary Results. No parties commented on this issue. Therefore, we have received no new information or evidence of changed circumstances that would cause the Department to reconsider that determination. Thus, we are finally rescinding the administrative review with respect to MEI.
