David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretaryfor Import Administration. [FR Doc. E7–3697 Filed 3–1–07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–DS–S Pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR § 351.216 (2005), the Department will conduct a changed– circumstances review upon receipt of information concerning, or a request from an interested party for a review of, an antidumping duty order which shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review of the order. SNFA and SKF France claim that they have satisfied the criteria to warrant such a review. See 19 CFR § 351.216(d). We agree that the information submitted by SNFA and SKF France demonstrates changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review. Therefore, in accordance with the above–referenced regulation, the Department is initiating a changed–circumstances review. VerDate Aug<31>2005 SNFA and SKF France also claim that the information contained in their January 9, 2007, request demonstrates that the post–acquisition SNFA is the successor–in-interest to the pre– acquisition SNFA. The requesting parties ask that the Department thus refrain from issuing a changed– circumstances questionnaire. The Department finds that the request does not clearly establish the entity to which SNFA is the successor–in-interest. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR § 351.221(b)(2) and (4) and 19 CFR § 351.221(c)(3)(i), we will issue a questionnaire requesting factual information for the review and will publish a notice of preliminary results of the antidumping duty changed– circumstances review in the Federal Register. The notice will set forth the factual and legal conclusions upon which our preliminary results are based. Pursuant to 19 CFR § 351.221(b)(4)(ii), interested parties will have an opportunity to comment on the preliminary results of review. We will issue final results of review no later than the regulatory deadline in accordance with 19 CFR § 351.216(e). During the course of this antidumping duty changed–circumstances review, we will not change the cash–deposit requirements for the subject merchandise. The cash–deposit rate will be altered, if warranted, pursuant only to the final results of this review. This notice of initiation is in accordance with section 751(b)(1) of the Act, 19 CFR § 351.216(b) and (d), and 19 CFR § 351.221(b)(1).

Respondent Duferco Sorral did not request an administrative review. On September 29, 2006, the Department initiated an administrative review of Duferco Sorral. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative, 71 FR 57465 (September 29, 2006).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 1, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register 
its notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on CORE from France. See Antidumping or 
Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; 
Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 71 FR 43441 (August 1, 
2006). In response, on August 31, 2006, United States Steel Corporation 
(U.S. Steel), a domestic interested party, requested an administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on CORE from France for the period 
of review (POR) of August 1, 2005, through July 31, 2006, with respect 
to entries of merchandise exported or shipped by Duferco Coating SA and 
Sorral SA (collectively, Duferco Sorral). Respondent Duferco Sorral did 
not request an administrative review. On September 29, 2006, the 
Department initiated an administrative review of Duferco Sorral. See 
Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative, 71 FR 
57465 (September 29, 2006). On October 16, 2006, the Department issued 
its antidumping duty questionnaire to Duferco Sorral. On November 13, 
2006, Duferco Sorral and its U.S. affiliate, Duferco Steel, Inc., filed 
certifications that they did not, directly or indirectly, enter for 
consumption, or sell, export, or ship for entry for consumption in the 
United States, subject merchandise during the POR. See Letter to the 
Secretary from White and Case LLP, dated November 13, 2006.
    On December 11, 2006, the Department issued a ``No Shipment 
Inquiry'' to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to confirm that 
there were no shipments or entries of CORE from France exported by 
Duferco Sorral during the POR of the instant administrative review. On 
December 27, 2006, the Department confirmed, based on its internal 
review of CBP data and the results of its CBP inquiry, there were no 
entries of subject merchandise exported or shipped by Duferco Sorral

through Stephen Bailey, Acting Program Manager, Office 7, Duferco 
Coating SA and Sorral SA (collectively Duferco Sorral) - No Shipments 
of Certain Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products from France 
Per CBP Inquiry, dated December 27, 2006. On January 19, 2007, U.S. 
Steel submitted a letter withdrawing its request for an administrative 
review of shipments or entries of CORE from France exported by Duferco 
Sorral. See Letter from Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, LLP, 
dated January 19, 2007.

Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review

    19 C.F.R. Sec.  351.213(d)(1) provides that the Department will 
rescind an administrative review if the party that requested the review 
withdraws its request for review within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review, or 
withdraws at a later date if the Department determines it is reasonable 
to extend the time limit for withdrawing the request. U.S. Steel's 
request is past the 90-day time limit; however, we find that it is 
reasonable to extend the deadline. In response to U.S. Steel's 
withdrawal of its request for an administrative review as well as the 
fact that Duferco Sorral had no shipments of subject merchandise during 
the POR pursuant to 19 C.F.R. Sec.  351.213(d)(3), the Department 
hereby rescinds the administrative review of the antidumping duty order 
on CORE from France for the period August 1, 2005, through July 31, 
2006.
    The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions 
to CBP 15 days after the date of the publication of this notice. The 
Department will direct CBP to assess antidumping duties for Duferco 
Sorral at the cash deposit rate in effect on the date of entry for 
entries during the period August 1, 2005, through July 31, 2006.

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 C.F.R. Sec.  351.402(f)(2) to file a 
certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to 
liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure 
to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary's 
assumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the 
subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 C.F.R. Sec.  351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion 
to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply
