Pursuant to Section 746.7(a)(2)(ii) of the Regulations, the reexport of the system to Iran required a license from BIS. Pursuant to Section 746.7(a)(3), in order to comply with the provisions of the EAR, transactions subject to both the EAR and the Iranian Transactions Regulations 4 maintained by the Office of Foreign Assets Control, U.S. Department of the Treasury (‘‘OFAC’’), require OFAC authorization. The reexport of the system to Iran required authorization from OFAC pursuant to 31 CFR. Part 560.205, and no such authorization was obtained. In failing to obtain such authorization from OFAC, Lincoln committed one violation of Section 764.2(a) of the Regulations. cprice-sewell on PRODPC61 with NOTICES Charge 2 15 CFR 764.2(e)—Unlicensed Transfer of Item to Iran Knowing That a Violation of the Regulations Would Occur In connection with the reexport transaction described above, Lincoln transferred a system, an item subject to the Regulations, from the UK to Iran knowing that a violation of the Regulations would occur. At all times relevant thereto, Lincoln knew that the system required authorization from the U.S. Government for reexport from the UK to Iran and that authorization for the reexport would not be obtained. Specifically, Lincoln received instructions in 2002 from Buehler United Kingdom’s parent company, Buehler Limited, that items such as the system which contain specialized software could not be sold to Iran from any Buehler locations. He was also made aware that selling such items to Iran was barred by U.S. law. In so doing, Lincoln committed one violation of Section 764.2(e) of the Regulations. Whereas, BIS and Lincoln have entered into a Settlement Agreement pursuant to Section 766.18(a) of the Regulations whereby they agreed to settle this matter in accordance with the 3 ‘‘ECCN’’ refers to ‘‘Export Control Classification Number.’’ See Supp. 1 to 15 CFR 774. 4 The Iranian Transactions Regulations are currently codified in the Code of Federal Regulations at 31 CFR part 560 (2006).

Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to this review are addressed in the ‘‘Issues and E:\FR\FM\11APN1.SGM 11APN1 18206 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 69 / Wednesday, April 11, 2007 / Notices Decision Memorandum’’ (Decision Memorandum) from Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, to David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated April 6, 2007, which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues which the parties have raised and to which we have responded is attached to this notice as an appendix. Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues raised in this review and corresponding recommendations in this public memorandum which is on file in Import Administration’s Central Records Unit, Room B–099 of the main Department building. In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memorandum is available on the Internet at http://ia ita.doc.gov/frn/index.html. The paper copy and electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of comments received, we have made a methodological change to our calculations as reflected in our Preliminary Results (see Comment 2 of the Decision Memorandum). Final Results of Review As a result of our review, we determine that the following weighted– average percentage margin exists for the period November 1, 2004, through October 31, 2005: Manufacturer/exporter Margin (percent) cprice-sewell on PRODPC61 with NOTICES Mittal Steel Galati S.A. 0.00 Assessment Rate The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. We intend to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of these final results of review. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we have calculated an importer–specific assessment rate. We will direct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries at this rate. See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 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 period of review produced by the company included in these final results of review for which the reviewed company did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:04 Apr 10, 2007 Jkt 211001 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 for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of these final results of administrative review, as provided by section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act): (1) the cash– deposit rate for MS Galati will be 0.00 percent; (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this review but covered in a previous segment of this proceeding, the cash– deposit rate will continue to be the company–specific rate published in the prior segment of the proceeding in which that manufacturer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review or in any previous segment of this proceeding but the manufacturer is, the cash–deposit rate will be that established for the manufacturer of the merchandise in these final results of review or in the most recent segment of the proceeding in which that manufacturer participated; and (4) if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered in this or any previous review conducted by the Department, the cash– deposit rate will be the ‘‘All Others’’ rate made effective on June 14, 2005, which is 17.84 percent. See Certain Hot– Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products From Romania: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 34448, 34450 (June 14, 2005). These deposit requirements shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification This notice also serves as the final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and in the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 return/destruction or conversion to judicial protective order of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Failure to comply is a violation of the APO. These final results of review are issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: April 4, 2007. Stephen J.

Decision Memorandum'' (Decision Memorandum) from Stephen J. Claeys, 
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, to David M. 
Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated April 6, 
2007, which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues 
which the parties have raised and to which we have responded is 
attached to this notice as an appendix. Parties can find a complete 
discussion of all issues raised in this review and corresponding 
recommendations in this public memorandum which is on file in Import 
Administration's Central Records Unit, Room B-099 of the main 
Department building. In addition, a complete version of the Decision 
Memorandum is available on the Internet at http://ia ita.doc.gov/frn/
index.html. The paper copy and electronic version of the Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of comments received, we have made a 
methodological change to our calculations as reflected in our 
Preliminary Results (see Comment 2 of the Decision Memorandum).

Final Results of Review

    As a result of our review, we determine that the following 
weighted-average percentage margin exists for the period November 1, 
2004, through October 31, 2005:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Manufacturer/exporter                  Margin (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mittal Steel Galati S.A.............................                0.00
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rate

    The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries. We intend to issue appropriate assessment instructions 
directly to CBP 15 days after publication of these final results of 
review. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we have calculated an 
importer-specific assessment rate. We will direct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries at this rate. See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    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 period of review produced by the company 
included in these final results of review for which the reviewed 
company 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 for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of these 
final results of administrative review, as provided by section 751(a) 
of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act): (1) the cash-deposit 
rate for MS Galati will be 0.00 percent; (2) for merchandise exported 
by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this review but covered in 
a previous segment of this proceeding, the cash-deposit rate will 
continue to be the company-specific rate published in the prior segment 
of the proceeding in which that manufacturer or exporter participated; 
(3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review or in any 
previous segment of this proceeding but the manufacturer is, the cash-
deposit rate will be that established for the manufacturer of the 
merchandise in these final results of review or in the most recent 
segment of the proceeding in which that manufacturer participated; and 
(4) if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered in 
this or any previous review conducted by the Department, the cash-
deposit rate will be the ``All Others'' rate made effective on June 14, 
2005, which is 17.84 percent. See Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat 
Products From Romania: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, 70 FR 34448, 34450 (June 14, 2005). These deposit requirements 
shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification

    This notice also serves as the final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and in the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return/destruction or conversion to judicial protective 
order of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 
19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Failure to comply is a violation of the APO.
    These final results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: April 4, 2007.
Stephen J. Claeys,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
