SUMMARY: On August 8, 2006, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published the preliminary results and partial rescission of the ninth administrative review for the antidumping duty order on certain pasta from Italy. The review covers two manufacturers/ exporters: (1) Atar, S.r.L. (‘‘Atar’’) and, (2) Corticella Molini e Pastifici S.p.A. and its affiliate Pasta Combattenti S.p.A. (collectively, ‘‘Corticella/Combattenti’’). The period of review (‘‘POR’’) is July 1, 2004, through June 30, 2005. Further, requests for review of the antidumping duty order for the following companies were withdrawn: Barilla G.e.R. Fratelli, S.p.A./Barilla Alimentare, S.p.A. (‘‘Barilla’’), Moline e Pastificio Tomasello S.r.L. (‘‘Tomasello’’), and Pastificio Laporta S.a.s. (‘‘Laporta’’). We are rescinding the review with respect to Italpasta/Pasta Berruto S.p.A. (‘‘Italpasta’’)1 because Italpasta submitted a letter stating that it had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. See 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). Finally, we are rescinding the review with respect to Pastificio Antonio Pallante S.r.L./Industrie Alimentari Molisane, S.r.L./Vitelli Foods, LLC (‘‘Pallante’’) because, since the initiation of the current review, the Department has revoked the order in part, with respect to Pallante, effective July 1, 2004. As a result of our analysis of the comments received, these final results differ from the preliminary results. EFFECTIVE DATE: February 14, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dennis McClure and Maura Jeffords for AGENCY: 1 In its September 20, 2005, letter, counsel for Italpasta S.p.A. informed the Department that it merged with its affiliate, Arrighi S.p.A. into a new company Pasta Berruto S.p.A.

Revocation Pursuant to Second Five-Year (``Sunset'') Reviews of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders: Certain Corrosion-Resistant 
Carbon Steel Flat Products from Australia, Canada, Japan, and France

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the International Trade 
Commission (``ITC'') that revocation of the antidumping (``AD'') orders 
on certain corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products (``CORE'') 
from Australia, Canada, Japan, and France and the countervailing duty 
(``CVD'') order on CORE from France would not be likely to lead to a 
continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the 
United States within a reasonably foreseeable time, the Department of 
Commerce (``the Department'') is publishing this notice of revocation 
of these AD and CVD orders pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Tariff 
Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act'').

EFFECTIVE DATE: December 15, 2005.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Darla Brown or Brandon Farlander, AD/

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 15, 2000, at the conclusion of the first sunset review 
of these orders, the Department published notice of continuation of 
these orders. See Continuation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Orders on Certain Carbon Steel Products from Australia, Belgium, 
Brazil, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, 
Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom, 65 FR 
78469 (December 15, 2000).
    On November 1, 2005, the Department initiated and the ITC 
instituted sunset reviews of the AD and CVD orders on CORE from 
Australia, Canada, Japan and France, pursuant to sections 751(c) and 
752 of 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 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 Expedited Sunset Reviews: Corrosion-
Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products from Australia, Canada, France, 
Germany, Japan, and South Korea, 71 FR 32508 (June 6, 2006)(``Final 
Results'') and Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products From 
France; Final Results of Full Sunset Review, 71 FR 58584 (October 4, 
2006).
    On January 31, 2007, the ITC determined, pursuant to section 751(c) 
of the Act, that revocation of the AD and CVD orders on CORE from 
Australia, Canada, Japan, and France would not be likely to lead to a 
continuation or

recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States 
within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Certain Carbon Steel Products 
from Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Finland, France, Germany,

Scope of the Orders

    The products subject to these orders include flat-rolled carbon 
steel products, of rectangular shape, either clad, plated, or coated 
with corrosion-resistant metals such as zinc, aluminum, or zinc-, 
aluminum-, nickel- or iron-based alloys, whether or not corrugated or 
painted, varnished or coated with plastics or other nonmetallic 
substances in addition to the metallic coating, in coils (whether or 
not in successively superimposed layers) and of a width of 0.5 inch or 
greater, or in straight lengths which, if of a thickness less than 4.75 
mm, are of a width of 0.5 inch or greater and which measures at least 
10 times the thickness, or if of a thickness of 4.75 mm or more, are of 
a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least twice the thickness, 
as currently classifiable in the HTS under item numbers: 7210.30.0030,

and 7217.90.5090.
    Included in these orders are flat-rolled products of nonrectangular 
cross-section where such cross-section is achieved subsequent to the 
rolling process (i.e., products which have been ``worked after 
rolling'') - for example, products which have been beveled or rounded 
at the edges.
    Excluded from the scope of these orders are flat-rolled steel 
products either plated or coated with tin, lead, chromium, chromium 
oxides, both tin and lead (``terne plate''), or both chromium and 
chromium oxides (``tin-free steel''), whether or not painted, varnished 
or coated with plastics or other nonmetallic substances in addition to 
the metallic coating. Also excluded from the scope of these orders are 
clad products in straight lengths of 0.1875 inch or more in composite 
thickness and of a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least 
twice the thickness. Also excluded from the scope of the orders are 
certain clad stainless flat-rolled products, which are three-layered 
corrosion- resistant carbon steel flat-rolled products less than 4.75 
mm in composite thickness that consist of a carbon steel flat-rolled 
product clad on both sides with stainless steel in a 20%-60%-20% ratio.
    The Department has issued numerous rulings regarding the scope of 
the order on Japan. A complete listing of these rulings is contained in 
the Final Results.

Determination

    As a result of the determination by the ITC that revocation of 
these AD and CVD orders is not likely to lead to continuation or 
recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States 
within a reasonably foreseeable time, the Department, pursuant to 
section 751(d) of the Act, is revoking the AD and CVD orders on CORE 
from Australia, Canada, Japan, and France. Pursuant to section 
751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i), the effective date of 
revocation is December 15, 2005 (i.e., the fifth anniversary of the 
date of publication in the Federal Register of the notice of 
continuation of the AD and CVD orders). The Department will notify U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection to discontinue suspension of liquidation 
and collection of cash deposits on entries of the subject merchandise 
entered or withdrawn from warehouse on or after December 15, 2005, the 
effective date of revocation of these AD and CVD orders. The Department 
will complete any pending administrative reviews of these orders and 
will conduct administrative reviews of subject merchandise entered 
prior to the effective date of revocation in response to appropriately 
filed requests for review.
    These five-year sunset reviews and notice are in accordance with 
section 751(d)(2) and published pursuant to section 777(i)(1) of the 
Act.
