As noted above, the Department did not receive any comments. Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to this order is certain hot–rolled products of carbon steel and alloy steel, in coils, of approximately round cross section, 5.00 mm or more, but less than 19.00 mm, in solid cross-sectional diameter. Specifically excluded are steel products possessing the above–noted physical characteristics and meeting the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) definitions for (a) stainless steel; (b) tool steel; (c) high nickel steel; (d) ball bearing steel; and (e) concrete reinforcing bars and rods. Also excluded are (f) free machining steel products (i.e., products that contain by weight one or more of the following elements: 0.03 percent or more of lead, 0.05 percent or more of bismuth, 0.08 percent or more of sulfur, more than 0.04 percent of phosphorus, more than 0.05 percent of selenium, or more than 0.01 percent of tellurium). Also excluded from the scope are 1080 grade tire cord quality wire rod and 1080 grade tire bead quality wire rod. This grade 1080 tire cord quality rod is defined as: (i) grade 1080 tire cord quality wire rod measuring 5.0 mm or more but not more than 6.0 mm in cross-sectional diameter; (ii) with an average partial decarburization of no more than 70 microns in depth (maximum individual 200 microns); (iii) having no non–deformable inclusions greater than 20 microns and no deformable inclusions greater than 35 microns; (iv) having a carbon segregation per heat average of 3.0 or better using European Method NFA 04– 114; (v) having a surface quality with no surface defects of a length greater than 0.15 mm; (vi) capable of being drawn to a diameter of 0.30 mm or less with 3 or fewer breaks per ton; and, (vii) containing by weight the following elements in the proportions shown: (1) 0.78 percent or more of carbon, (2) less than 0.01 percent of aluminum, (3) 0.040 percent or less, in the aggregate, of phosphorus and sulfur, (4) 0.006 percent or less of nitrogen, and (5) not more than 0.15 percent, in the aggregate, of copper, nickel and chromium. This grade 1080 tire bead quality rod is defined as: (i) grade 1080 tire bead quality wire rod measuring 5.5 mm or more but not more than 7.0 mm in cross-sectional diameter; (ii) with an average partial decarburization of no more than 70 microns in depth (maximum individual 200 microns); (iii) having no non–deformable inclusions greater than 20 microns and no E:\FR\FM\06MRN1.SGM 06MRN1 cprice-sewell on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 43 / Tuesday, March 6, 2007 / Notices deformable inclusions greater than 35 microns; (iv) having a carbon segregation per heat average of 3.0 or better using European Method NFA 04– 114; (v) having a surface quality with no surface defects of a length greater than 0.2 mm; (vi) capable of being drawn to a diameter of 0.78 mm or larger with 0.5 or fewer breaks per ton; and (vii) containing by weight the following elements in the proportions shown: (1) 0.78 percent or more of carbon, (2) less than 0.01 percent of soluble aluminum, (3) 0.040 percent or less, in the aggregate, of phosphorus and sulfur, (4) 0.008 percent or less of nitrogen, and (5) either not more than 0.15 percent, in the aggregate, of copper, nickel and chromium (if chromium is not specified), or not more than 0.10 percent in the aggregate of copper and nickel and a chromium content of 0.24 to 0.30 percent (if chromium is specified). For purposes of the grade 1080 tire cord quality wire rod and the grade 1080 tire bead quality wire rod, an inclusion will be considered to be deformable if its ratio of length (measured along the axis - that is, the direction of rolling - of the rod) over thickness (measured on the same inclusion in a direction perpendicular to the axis of the rod) is equal to or greater than three. The size of an inclusion for purposes of the 20 microns and 35 microns limitations is the measurement of the largest dimension observed on a longitudinal section measured in a direction perpendicular to the axis of the rod. This measurement methodology applies only to inclusions on certain grade 1080 tire cord quality wire rod and certain grade 1080 tire bead quality wire rod that are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after July 24, 2003. See Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Brazil, Canada, Indonesia, Mexico, Moldova, Trinidad and Tobago, and Ukraine: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review, 68 FR 64079, 64081 (November 12, 2003). The designation of the products as ‘‘tire cord quality’’ or ‘‘tire bead quality’’ indicates the acceptability of the product for use in the production of tire cord, tire bead, or wire for use in other rubber reinforcement applications such as hose wire. These quality designations are presumed to indicate that these products are being used in tire cord, tire bead, and other rubber reinforcement applications, and such merchandise intended for the tire cord, tire bead, or other rubber reinforcement applications is not included in the scope. However, should petitioners or other interested parties provide a reasonable basis to believe or suspect that there exists a VerDate Aug<31>2005 20:10 Mar 05, 2007 Jkt 211001 pattern of importation of such products for other than those applications, end– use certification for the importation of such products may be required. Under such circumstances, only the importers of record would normally be required to certify the end use of the imported merchandise. All products meeting the physical description of subject merchandise that are not specifically excluded are included in this scope. The products under review are currently classifiable under subheadings 7213.91.3010, 7213.91.3090, 7213.91.4510, 7213.91.4590, 7213.91.6010, 7213.91.6090, 7213.99.0031, 7213.99.0038, 7213.99.0090, 7227.20.0010, 7227.20.0020, 7227.20.0090, 7227.20.0095, 7227.90.6051, 7227.90.6053, 7227.90.6058, and 7227.90.6059 of the HTSUS. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this order is dispositive. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Subsequent to the preliminary results, we discovered some minor technical problems with the computer program we used to calculate the margin. We found that several incorrect temporary data sets were used in the preliminary calculations. For the final results, we changed the names of the following temporary data sets in the margin program to correspond to the names in the comparison market program. In the margin program, we changed the names of the weighted–average cost data set, the weighted–average comparison market data set, and the weighted– average comparison market profit and selling expense data set. Correcting these problems does not change the de minimis margin from the preliminary results. See November 7, 2006, Memorandum to the File from Case Analysts, ‘‘Telephone Call Regarding a Technical Clarification of the Preliminary Calculation,’’ a public document on file in room B–099 of the Central Records Unit (CRU). In addition, in our preliminary calculation, when we calculated the foreign unit price in dollars, we incorrectly converted the gross unit price variable, the credit expense variable, and the indirect selling expense variable, which were already reported in U.S. dollars. We have made the necessary corrections to the margin program as noted in our Final Calculation Memorandum, to the file, dated March 7, 2007, the public version of which is on file in the CRU. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 9923 Final Results of Review As noted above, there have been no changes from the Preliminary Results, except for the minor clarification of temporary databases and the correction of the currency conversion error. Therefore, we are not attaching a Decision Memorandum to this Federal Register notice. For further details of the issues addressed in this proceeding, see the Preliminary Results. As a result of this review, we find that the following weighted–average dumping margin exists for the period October 1, 2004, through September 30, 2005: Producer/Manufacturer Mittal Steel Point Lisas Limited ....................... Weighted–Average Margin 0.06% (i.e., de minimis) Assessment Rates The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries, pursuant to section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.212(b). The Department calculated importer–specific duty assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of the examined sales for that importer. Where the assessment rate is above de minimis, we will instruct CBP to assess duties on all entries of subject merchandise by that importer. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003 (68 FR 23954). This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Mittal where Mittal did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the ‘‘All Others’’ rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of wire rod from Trinidad and Tobago, entered or E:\FR\FM\06MRN1.SGM 06MRN1 9924 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 43 / Tuesday, March 6, 2007 / Notices withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of these final results, as provided by section 751(a) of the Act: (1) For Mittal no cash deposit will be required; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not covered in this review, but covered in the less– than-fair–value (LTFV) investigation, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company–specific rate established in the final determination; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review or the LTFV investigation, but the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the producer of the subject merchandise for the most recent period; and (4) if neither the exporter nor the producer is a firm covered in this review or the less–thanfair–value investigation, the cash deposit rate will be 11.40 percent, the ‘‘All Others’’ rate established in the investigation. See Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Trinidad and Tobago, 67 FR 55788 (August 30, 2002). These deposit requirements shall remain in effect until publication of the final results of the next administrative review. Reimbursement of Duties This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the presumption that reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent increase in antidumping duties by the amount of antidumping and/or countervailing duties reimbursed. cprice-sewell on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES Administrative Protective Orders This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (APOs) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 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 with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation that is subject to sanction.

to be deformable if its ratio of length (measured along the axis - that 
is, the direction of rolling - of the rod) over thickness (measured on 
the same inclusion in a direction perpendicular to the axis of the rod) 
is equal to or greater than three. The size of an inclusion for 
purposes of the 20 microns and 35 microns limitations is the 
measurement of the largest dimension observed on a longitudinal section 
measured in a direction perpendicular to the axis of the rod. This 
measurement methodology applies only to inclusions on certain grade 
1080 tire cord quality wire rod and certain grade 1080 tire bead 
quality wire rod that are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after July 24, 2003. See Carbon and Certain Alloy 
Steel Wire Rod from Brazil, Canada, Indonesia, Mexico, Moldova, 
Trinidad and Tobago, and Ukraine: Final Results of Changed 
Circumstances Review, 68 FR 64079, 64081 (November 12, 2003).
    The designation of the products as ``tire cord quality'' or ``tire 
bead quality'' indicates the acceptability of the product for use in 
the production of tire cord, tire bead, or wire for use in other rubber 
reinforcement applications such as hose wire. These quality 
designations are presumed to indicate that these products are being 
used in tire cord, tire bead, and other rubber reinforcement 
applications, and such merchandise intended for the tire cord, tire 
bead, or other rubber reinforcement applications is not included in the 
scope. However, should petitioners or other interested parties provide 
a reasonable basis to believe or suspect that there exists a pattern of 
importation of such products for other than those applications, end-use 
certification for the importation of such products may be required. 
Under such circumstances, only the importers of record would normally 
be required to certify the end use of the imported merchandise.
    All products meeting the physical description of subject 
merchandise that are not specifically excluded are included in this 
scope.
    The products under review are currently classifiable under 
subheadings 7213.91.3010, 7213.91.3090, 7213.91.4510, 7213.91.4590, 
7213.91.6010, 7213.91.6090, 7213.99.0031, 7213.99.0038, 7213.99.0090, 
7227.20.0010, 7227.20.0020, 7227.20.0090, 7227.20.0095, 7227.90.6051, 
7227.90.6053, 7227.90.6058, and 7227.90.6059 of the HTSUS. Although the 
HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, 
the written description of the scope of this order is dispositive.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Subsequent to the preliminary results, we discovered some minor 
technical problems with the computer program we used to calculate the 
margin. We found that several incorrect temporary data sets were used 
in the preliminary calculations. For the final results, we changed the 
names of the following temporary data sets in the margin program to 
correspond to the names in the comparison market program. In the margin 
program, we changed the names of the weighted-average cost data set, 
the weighted-average comparison market data set, and the weighted-
average comparison market profit and selling expense data set. 
Correcting these problems does not change the de minimis margin from 
the preliminary results. See November 7, 2006, Memorandum to the File 
from Case Analysts, ``Telephone Call Regarding a Technical 
Clarification of the Preliminary Calculation,'' a public document on 
file in room B-099 of the Central Records Unit (CRU). In addition, in 
our preliminary calculation, when we calculated the foreign unit price 
in dollars, we incorrectly converted the gross unit price variable, the 
credit expense variable, and the indirect selling expense variable, 
which were already reported in U.S. dollars. We have made the necessary 
corrections to the margin program as noted in our Final Calculation 
Memorandum, to the file, dated March 7, 2007, the public version of 
which is on file in the CRU.

Final Results of Review

    As noted above, there have been no changes from the Preliminary 
Results, except for the minor clarification of temporary databases and 
the correction of the currency conversion error. Therefore, we are not 
attaching a Decision Memorandum to this Federal Register notice. For 
further details of the issues addressed in this proceeding, see the 
Preliminary Results.
    As a result of this review, we find that the following weighted-
average dumping margin exists for the period October 1, 2004, through 
September 30, 2005:

Assessment Rates

    The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries, pursuant to section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.212(b). The Department calculated 
importer-specific duty assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of 
the total antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the 
total entered value of the examined sales for that importer. Where the 
assessment rate is above de minimis, we will instruct CBP to assess 
duties on all entries of subject merchandise by that importer. The 
Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of these final results of review.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003 (68 FR 23954). This clarification will apply to entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR produced by Mittal where Mittal did 
not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such 
instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the 
``All Others'' rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this 
clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of wire rod from Trinidad and Tobago, entered or

[[Page 9924]]

withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication 
date of these final results, as provided by section 751(a) of the Act: 
(1) For Mittal no cash deposit will be required; (2) for merchandise 
exported by producers or exporters not covered in this review, but 
covered in the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate established 
in the final determination; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered 
in this review or the LTFV investigation, but the producer is, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate established for the producer of the 
subject merchandise for the most recent period; and (4) if neither the 
exporter nor the producer is a firm covered in this review or the less-
than-fair-value investigation, the cash deposit rate will be 11.40 
percent, the ``All Others'' rate established in the investigation. See 
Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Carbon 
and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Trinidad and Tobago, 67 FR 55788 
(August 30, 2002). These deposit requirements shall remain in effect 
until publication of the final results of the next administrative 
review.

Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties 
prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. 
Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the presumption 
that reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred 
and the subsequent increase in antidumping duties by the amount of 
antidumping and/or countervailing duties reimbursed.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APOs) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 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 with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation that is 
subject to sanction.
    We are issuing and publishing these results and notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: February 27, 2007.
David M. Spooner,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
