SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 11, 2006, we published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of this administrative review. See Preliminary Results. In response to the Department’s invitation to comment on the preliminary results of this review, Corus (respondent) and domestic interested party Mittal Steel USA Inc. (Mittal Steel) filed case briefs on January 17, 2007. Corus, Mittal Steel and petitioner United States Steel Corporation (U.S. Steel) submitted rebuttal briefs on January 24, 2007, and on January 25, 2007, domestic interested party Nucor Corporation (Nucor) filed a rebuttal brief. On March 23, 2007, the Department extended the final results by 35 days. See Certain Hot–Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from the Netherlands; Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; Extension of Time Limit, 72 FR 13744 (March 23, 2007). On May 4, 2007, Corus submitted a request for the Department to rescind the review in light of the Department ’s Final Results for the Section 129 Determination: Certain Hot–rolled Carbon Steel from the Netherlands (April 9, 2007) and the U.S. Trade Representative’s instructions to the Department to implement those findings under Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act. See Implementation of the Findings of the WTO Panel in US–Zeroing (EC): Notice of Determinations under Section 129 of the Uruguay Agreements Act and Revocations and Partial Revocations of Certain Antidumping Duty Orders, 72 FR 25, 261 (May 4, 2007). On May 11, 2007, Mittal Steel and Nucor submitted responses to Corus Staal’s request. The request for rescission is well past the deadline for such requests and furthermore Corus Staal itself did not request the review, thus making it ineligible to request rescission. See 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). Corus’ arguments regarding the section 129 determination are addressed in the Issues and Decisions Memorandum, (Decision Memorandum) which accompanies this Notice, at issue 4. Period of Review The period of review (POR) is November 1, 2004, to October 31, 2005. PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Scope of the Order For purposes of this order, the products covered are certain hot–rolled carbon steel flat products of a rectangular shape, of a width of 0.5 inch or greater, neither clad, plated, nor coated with metal and whether or not painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other non–metallic substances, in coils (whether or not in successively superimposed layers), regardless of thickness, and in straight lengths, of a thickness of less than 4.75 mm and of a width measuring at least 10 times the thickness. Universal mill plate (i.e., flat–rolled products rolled on four faces or in a closed box pass, of a width exceeding 150 mm, but not exceeding 1250 mm, and of a thickness of not less than 4.0 mm, not in coils and without patterns in relief) of a thickness not less than 4.0 mm is not included within the scope of the order. Specifically included within the scope of this order are vacuum degassed, fully stabilized (commonly referred to as interstitial–free (IF)) steels, high strength low alloy (HSLA) steels, and the substrate for motor lamination steels. IF steels are recognized as low carbon steels with micro–alloying levels of elements such as titanium or niobium (also commonly referred to as columbium), or both, added to stabilize carbon and nitrogen elements. HSLA steels are recognized as steels with micro–alloying levels of elements such as chromium, copper, niobium, vanadium, and molybdenum. The substrate for motor lamination steels contains micro–alloying levels of elements such silicon and aluminum. Steel products to be included in the scope of this order, regardless of definitions in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), are products in which: (i) iron predominates, by weight, over each of the other contained elements; (ii) the carbon content is 2 percent or less, by weight; and (iii) none of the elements listed below exceeds the quantity, by weight, respectively indicated: 1.80 percent of manganese, or 2.25 percent of silicon, or 1.00 percent of copper, or 0.50 percent of aluminum, or 1.25 percent of chromium, or 0.30 percent of cobalt, or 0.40 percent of lead, or 1.25 percent of nickel, or 0.30 percent of tungsten, or 0.10 percent of molybdenum, or 0.10 percent of niobium, or 0.15 percent of vanadium, or 0.15 percent of zirconium.

Subject merchandise may also enter under 7210.70.30.00, 7210.90.90.00, 7211.14.00.30, 7212.40.10.00, 7212.40.50.00, and 7212.50.00.00. Although the HTS subheadings are provided for convenience and U.S. Customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this order is dispositive. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to this administrative review are addressed in the Decision Memorandum from Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for AD/CVD Operations, to David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated May 15, 2007, which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues which parties have raised and to which we have responded, all of which are in the Decision Memorandum, is attached to this notice as an appendix. Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues raised in this review and the corresponding recommendations in this public memorandum, which is on file in the Central Records Unit, room B–099 of the main Department building. In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly via the Internet at www.ia.ita.doc.gov. The paper copy and electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Duty Absorption In the Preliminary Results, the Department found that Corus Staal absorbed antidumping duties on all U.S. sales in accordance with section 751(a)(4) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Tariff Act). Corus Staal has failed to provide evidence that the unaffiliated customers in the United States will pay the full duty ultimately assessed on the subject merchandise. See Comment 6 of the Issues and Decisions Memorandum. Thus, for the final results of this review, we continue to find that Corus Staal absorbed antidumping duties. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made the following changes to the margin calculation: • We corrected a clerical error that erroneously compared U.S. control numbers to comparison market product codes. • We corrected a clerical error involving the CEP profit rate. These changes are discussed in the relevant sections of the Decision Memorandum. PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 28677 Final Results of Review We determine that the following weighted–average percentage margin exists for the period November 1, 2004, to October 31, 2005: Manufacturer/Exporter Weighted Average Margin (percentage) Corus Staal BV ........... 2.52 Assessment The Department shall determine, and the CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we have calculated importer–specific assessment rates for the merchandise based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales made during the POR to the total customs value of the sales used to calculate those duties. The Department will issue appropriate ad valorem assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of these final results of review. We will direct CBP to assess the resulting assessment rate against the entered customs values for the subject merchandise on each of the importer’s entries during the POR. Cash Deposit Requirements On May 4, 2007, the Department published a FR notice that, inter alia, revoked this order, effective April 23, 2007. See Implementation of the Findings of the WTO Panel in US – Zeroing (EC): Notice of Determinations Under Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act and Revocations and Partial Revocations of Certain Antidumping Duty Orders, 72 FR 25,261 (May 4,2007). Therefore, there is no need to issue new cash deposit instructions for this administrative review. Notification to Interested Parties This notice also 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 presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (APOs) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information E:\FR\FM\22MYN1.SGM 22MYN1 28678 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 98 / Tuesday, May 22, 2007 / Notices disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 C.F.R. § 351.305, that continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. This determination is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The prospective exclusive license will be royalty bearing and will comply with the terms and conditions of 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR 404.7. The prospective exclusive license may be granted unless, within thirty days from the date of this published Notice, NIST receives written evidence and argument which establish that the grant of the license would not be consistent with the requirements of 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR 404.7. The availability of the invention for licensing was published in the Federal Register on June 24, 2003. U.S. Patent No. 5,620,857 is owned by the U.S. government, as represented by the Secretary of Commerce. Tightly focused beams of laser light are used as ‘‘optical tweezers’’ to trap and manipulate polarizable objects such as microspheres of glass or latex with diameters on the order of 4.5 .mu.m. When analytes are allowed to adhere to the microspheres, small quantities of these analytes can be manipulated, thus allowing their detection and quantitation even when amounts and concentrations of the analytes are extremely small. Illustrative examples include measuring the strength needed to break antibody-antigen bonds and the detection of DNA sequences.

of subject merchandise from Corus Staal BV (Corus Staal) to the United 
States during the period November 1, 2004, to October 31, 2005. Based 
on our analysis of the comments received, we have made changes to the 
margin calculation. However, the final results do not differ from the 
preliminary results. The final weighted-average dumping margin for the 
reviewed firm is listed below in the section entitled ``Final Results 
of Review.''

EFFECTIVE DATE: May 22, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David Cordell or Robert James, AD/CVD

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 11, 2006, we published in the Federal Register the 
preliminary results of this administrative review. See Preliminary 
Results. In response to the Department's invitation to comment on the 
preliminary results of this review, Corus (respondent) and domestic 
interested party Mittal Steel USA Inc. (Mittal Steel) filed case briefs 
on January 17, 2007. Corus, Mittal Steel and petitioner United States 
Steel Corporation (U.S. Steel) submitted rebuttal briefs on January 24, 
2007, and on January 25, 2007, domestic interested party Nucor 
Corporation (Nucor) filed a rebuttal brief. On March 23, 2007, the 
Department extended the final results by 35 days. See Certain Hot-
Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from the Netherlands; Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Review; Extension of Time Limit, 72 FR 13744 (March 
23, 2007).
    On May 4, 2007, Corus submitted a request for the Department to 
rescind the review in light of the Department 's Final Results for the 
Section 129 Determination: Certain Hot-rolled Carbon Steel from the 
Netherlands (April 9, 2007) and the U.S. Trade Representative's 
instructions to the Department to implement those findings under 
Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act. See Implementation of 
the Findings of the WTO Panel in US-Zeroing (EC): Notice of 
Determinations under Section 129 of the Uruguay Agreements Act and 
Revocations and Partial Revocations of Certain Antidumping Duty Orders, 
72 FR 25, 261 (May 4, 2007). On May 11, 2007, Mittal Steel and Nucor 
submitted responses to Corus Staal's request. The request for 
rescission is well past the deadline for such requests and furthermore 
Corus Staal itself did not request the review, thus making it 
ineligible to request rescission. See 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). Corus' 
arguments regarding the section 129 determination are addressed in the 
Issues and Decisions Memorandum, (Decision Memorandum) which 
accompanies this Notice, at issue 4.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to 
this administrative review are addressed in the Decision Memorandum 
from Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for AD/CVD 
Operations, to David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import 
Administration, dated May 15, 2007, which is hereby adopted by this 
notice. A list of the issues which parties have raised and to which we 
have responded, all of which are in the Decision Memorandum, is 
attached to this notice as an appendix. Parties can find a complete 
discussion of all issues raised in this review and the corresponding 
recommendations in this public memorandum, which is on file in the 
Central Records Unit, room B-099 of the main Department building. In 
addition, a complete version of the Decision Memorandum can be accessed 
directly via the Internet at www.ia.ita.doc.gov. The paper copy and 
electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Duty Absorption

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department found that Corus Staal 
absorbed antidumping duties on all U.S. sales in accordance with 
section 751(a)(4) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Tariff 
Act). Corus Staal has failed to provide evidence that the unaffiliated 
customers in the United States will pay the full duty ultimately 
assessed on the subject merchandise. See Comment 6 of the Issues and 
Decisions Memorandum. Thus, for the final results of this review, we 
continue to find that Corus Staal absorbed antidumping duties.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made the 
following changes to the margin calculation:
     We corrected a clerical error that erroneously compared 
U.S. control numbers to comparison market product codes.
     We corrected a clerical error involving the CEP profit 
rate.
These changes are discussed in the relevant sections of the Decision 
Memorandum.

Final Results of Review

    We determine that the following weighted-average percentage margin 
exists for the period November 1, 2004, to October 31, 2005:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                       Weighted Average
               Manufacturer/Exporter                 Margin (percentage)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Corus Staal BV.....................................                 2.52
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment

    The Department shall determine, and the CBP shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. In accordance with 19 
CFR 351.212(b)(1), we have calculated importer-specific assessment 
rates for the merchandise based on the ratio of the total amount of 
antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales made during the 
POR to the total customs value of the sales used to calculate those 
duties. The Department will issue appropriate ad valorem assessment 
instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of these final 
results of review. We will direct CBP to assess the resulting 
assessment rate against the entered customs values for the subject 
merchandise on each of the importer's entries during the POR.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    On May 4, 2007, the Department published a FR notice that, inter 
alia, revoked this order, effective April 23, 2007. See Implementation 
of the Findings of the WTO Panel in US - Zeroing (EC): Notice of 
Determinations Under Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act 
and Revocations and Partial Revocations of Certain Antidumping Duty 
Orders, 72 FR 25,261 (May 4,2007). Therefore, there is no need to issue 
new cash deposit instructions for this administrative review.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice also 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 
presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and 
the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APOs) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information

disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 C.F.R. Sec.  351.305, that 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or 
destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order 
is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the 
terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    This determination is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: May 15, 2007.
David M. Spooner,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
