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.

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.
