In our Preliminary Results, we determined that revocation of the order would likely result in continuation or recurrence of dumping with a margin of 41.69 percent for the all others rate, including Mittal Steel Kryviy Rih and Krivorozhstal Steel Works. We did not receive a case brief on behalf of either domestic or respondent interested parties within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(i). Scope of the Order The product covered by this order is all steel concrete reinforcing bars sold in straight lengths, currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) under item numbers 7214.20.00, 7228.30.8050, 7222.11.0050, 7222.30.0000, 7228.60.6000, 7228.20.1000, or any other tariff item number. Specifically excluded are plain rounds (i.e., non– deformed or smooth bars) and rebar that has been further processed through bending or coating. HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes. The written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Analysis of Comments Received The Department did not receive case briefs from either domestic or respondent interested parties. Therefore, we have not made any changes to our Preliminary Results. Final Results of Review We determine that revocation of the antidumping duty order on rebar from Ukraine would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the following weighted–average margin: Weighted–Average Margin (Percent) Manufacturers/Producers/Exporters All Others Rate, including Mittal Steel Kryviy Rih and ‘‘Krivorozhstal’’ Steel Works1 .............................................. 41.69 1 As of February 1, 2006, Ukraine graduated to market economy status. See Final Results of Inquiry Into Ukraine’s Status as a Non-Market Economy Country, 71 FR 9520 (February 24, 2006). As a result, the Ukraine wide rate is now the All Others rate. Mittal Steel is considered part of the all others rate because a successor-in-interest determination has not been made. See, e.g., Cut-to-Length Carbon Steel Plate from Belgium, Brazil, Finland, Germany, Mexico, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom and Carbon Steel Plate from Taiwan; Second Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews of Antidumping Duty Orders and Antidumping Finding; Final Results, 71 FR 11577, 11579 (March 8, 2006) (explaining that Duferco is subject to the all others rate because the Department had not yet conducted a changed circumstances review to determine the successor-in-interest to Forges de Clabecq, S.A.).
