SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On April 20, 2007, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published the preliminary results of the administrative reviews of the countervailing duty orders on pure magnesium and alloy magnesium from Canada for the period January 1, 2005, through August 15, 2005. See Pure Magnesium and Alloy Magnesium from Canada: Preliminary Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 72 FR 19881 (April 20, 2007) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). Norsk Hydro Canada, Inc. (‘‘NHCI’’) submitted a case brief on May 7, 2007. In its case brief, NHCI agreed with the Department’s Preliminary Results with respect to NHCI. US Magnesium LLC (‘‘the petitioner’’) did not file a case or rebuttal brief. Scope of the Orders DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE International Trade Administration [C–122–815] Pure Magnesium and Alloy Magnesium from Canada: Final Results of 2005 Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce. SUMMARY: On April 20, 2007, the Department of Commerce published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of the administrative reviews of the countervailing duty orders on pure magnesium and alloy magnesium from Canada for the period January 1, 2005, through August 15, 2005. We gave interested parties an opportunity to comment on the preliminary results. Our analysis of the comments received on the preliminary results did not lead to any changes in the net subsidy rate. Therefore, the final results do not differ from the preliminary results. The final net subsidy rate for the reviewed company is listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of Reviews.’’ EFFECTIVE DATE: July 11, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Andrew McAllister or Brandon Farlander, AD/CVD Operations, Office AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The products covered by these orders are shipments of pure and alloy magnesium from Canada. Pure magnesium contains at least 99.8 percent magnesium by weight and is sold in various slab and ingot forms and sizes. Magnesium alloys contain less than 99.8 percent magnesium by weight with magnesium being the largest metallic element in the alloy by weight, and are sold in various ingot and billet forms and sizes. The pure and alloy magnesium subject to the orders is currently classifiable under items 8104.11.0000 and 8104.19.0000, respectively, of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written descriptions of the merchandise subject to the orders are dispositive. Secondary and granular magnesium are not included in the scope of these orders. Our reasons for excluding granular magnesium are summarized in Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Pure and Alloy Magnesium From Canada, 57 FR 6094 (February 20, 1992). Period of Reviews The period for which we are measuring subsidies, or POR, is January 1, 2005, through August 15, 2005. E:\FR\FM\11JYN1.SGM 11JYN1
