Mendoza, 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. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review 19 C.F.R. § 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. § 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. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 C.F.R. § 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 8, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published the preliminary results of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on certain hot-rolled carbon steel 
flat products (``hot-rolled steel'') from Thailand covering the period 
November 1, 2004, through October 31, 2005. See Certain Hot-Rolled 
Carbon Steel Flat Products From Thailand; Preliminary Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Rescission in Part, 71 FR 
65458 (November 8, 2006). The final results for the antidumping duty 
administrative review of hot-rolled steel from Thailand are currently 
due no later than March 8, 2007.

Extension of Time Limits for Final Results of Review

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue the final results within 120 
days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. 
However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within that 
time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to 
extend the time limit of the final results to 180 days from the date of 
publication of the preliminary results.
    Due to the complexity of the affiliation issue present in this 
administrative review, as well as the demands of other proceedings 
handled by the office administering this review, the Department has 
determined that it is not practicable to complete this review within 
the original time period. Accordingly, the Department is extending the 
time for completion of the final results to 180 days from the 
publication date of the preliminary results, until no later than May 7, 
2007, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
