SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On November 1, 2005, the Department initiated and the ITC instituted sunset reviews of the AD orders on CORE from Germany and Korea and CVD order on CORE from Korea, pursuant to sections 751(c) and 752 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), respectively. See Notice of Initiation of Five–Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Reviews, 70 FR 65884 (November 1, 2005). As a result of its reviews, the Department found that revocation of the AD orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and that revocation of the CVD order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of subsidization, and notified the ITC of the margins of dumping and the subsidy rates likely to prevail were the orders to be revoked.

Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders: Certain Corrosion-Resistant 
Carbon Steel Flat Products from Germany and Korea

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of 
Commerce (``the Department'') and the International Trade Commission 
(``ITC'') that revocation of the antidumping (``AD'') orders on certain 
corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products (``CORE'') from Germany 
and Korea would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping; 
that revocation of the countervailing duty (``CVD'') order on CORE from 
Korea would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of a 
countervailable subsidy; and that revocation of these AD and CVD orders 
would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury to 
an industry in the United States, the Department is publishing this 
notice of continuation of these AD and CVD orders.

EFFECTIVE DATE: February 14, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 1, 2005, the Department initiated and the ITC 
instituted sunset reviews of the AD orders on CORE from Germany and 
Korea and CVD order on CORE from Korea, pursuant to sections 751(c) and 
752 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), respectively. 
See Notice of Initiation of Five-Year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 70 FR 65884 
(November 1, 2005). As a result of its reviews, the Department found 
that revocation of the AD orders would likely lead to continuation or 
recurrence of dumping and that revocation of the CVD order would be 
likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of subsidization, and 
notified the ITC of the margins of dumping and the subsidy rates likely 
to prevail were the orders to be revoked. See Final Results of

Carbon Steel Flat Products From Korea: Final Results of Expedited Five-
Year (``Sunset'') Review of Countervailing Duty Order, 71 FR 32519 
(June 6, 2006) (collectively, ``Final Results'').
    On January 31, 2007, the ITC determined that revocation of the AD 
orders on CORE from Germany and Korea and the CVD order on CORE from 
Korea would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material 
injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Certain Carbon Steel
