Oil Country Tubular Goods From Mexico: Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 46439-46440 [E7-16325]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 160 / Monday, August 20, 2007 / Notices Correction: On August 6, 2007, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published the notice of initiation of the antidumping duty investigation of certain new pneumatic off–the-road tires from the People’s Republic of China. See Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigation: Certain New Pneumatic Off–the-Road Tires From the People’s Republic of China, 72 FR 43591 (August 6, 2007) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). Subsequent to the signature of the Initiation Notice, we identified an inadvertent error in the above– referenced notice. Specifically, the due date for the submission of the separate–rate application was inadvertently identified as August 20, 2007, in the Initiation Notice. The correct due date is September 28, 2007. Conclusion: This notice serves solely to correct the due date for the separate rate– application as it appeared in the Initiation Notice. The Department’s findings in the Initiation Notice remain unchanged. This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 777(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended. Dated: August 13, 2007. Gary Taverman, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Department published an antidumping duty order on OCTG from Mexico on August 11, 1995. See Antidumping Duty Order: Oil Country Tubular Goods from Mexico, 60 FR 41056 (August 11, 1995). The Department published a notice of ‘‘Opportunity to Request an Administrative Review’’ of the antidumping duty order for the period August 1, 2005, through July 31, 2006, on August 1, 2006. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 71 FR 43441 (August 1, 2006). Hylsa requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of its sales subject to the antidumping duty order on OCTG from Mexico on August 31, 2006. In addition, petitioner United States Steel Corporation (‘‘U.S. Steel’’) requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of sales of merchandise covered by the order by Hylsa and Tubos de Acero de Mexico, S.A. (‘‘TAMSA’’) on August 31, 2006. In response to the requests from Hylsa and U.S. Steel, the Department published the initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review on OCTG from Mexico on September 29, 2006. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 71 FR 57465 (September 29, 2006). The Department issued questionnaires to both Hylsa and TAMSA on October 11, 2006. The Department received responses from Hylsa on November 21, 2006, and December 20, 2007. The Department issued a supplemental questionnaire on February 16, 2007. Hylsa submitted the supplemental response on March 16, 2007. On November 1, 2006, TAMSA submitted a letter to the Department stating that it had no shipments of OCTG to the United States during the period of review. The Department issued a ‘‘No Shipment Inquiry’’ to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) on February 5, 2007, to confirm that PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46439 there were no shipments or entries of OCTG from Mexico exported by TAMSA during the period of review (‘‘POR’’) of the instant administrative review. The Department requested further information from CBP on February 28, 2007, to which CBP responded on April 5, 2007. The Department placed this information on the record of this proceeding on May 15, 2007. See Memorandum to the File from John Drury, Senior Case Analyst Receipt of Documents from Customs and Border Protection Regarding Entries of Oil Country Tubular Goods from Mexico. The Department extended the time limits for the preliminary results of this review on May 3, 2007. See Oil Country Tubular Goods from Mexico: Extension of Time Limits for the Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 24562 (May 3, 2007). On June 22, 2007, the Department revoked the antidumping duty order on OCTG from Mexico. See Oil Country Tubular Goods from Argentina, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Mexico; Revocation of Antidumping Duty Orders Pursuant to Second Five-year (Sunset) Reviews, 72 FR 34442 (June 22, 2007). U.S. Steel withdrew its request for review with respect to Hylsa on July 13, 2007, and withdrew its request for review with respect to TAMSA on July 24, 2007. Hylsa withdrew its request for review on July 31, 2007. Rescission of the Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR § 351.213(d)(3), the Secretary may rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the Secretary concludes that there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise, as the case may be, during the period covered by the review. Also, pursuant to 19 CFR § 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review under this section, in whole or in part, if a party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. The Secretary may extend this time limit if the Secretary decides that it is reasonable to do so. See 19 CFR § 351.213(d)(1). U.S. Steel’s and Hylsa’s requests are past the 90-day time limit; however, we find that it is reasonable to extend this deadline for the following reasons: (1) the Department has revoked this antidumping duty order, and (2) all parties that requested reviews have withdrawn their requests and no party has objected to the termination of the review. Therefore, the Department E:\FR\FM\20AUN1.SGM 20AUN1 46440 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 160 / Monday, August 20, 2007 / Notices determines that the continuation of the administrative review is not necessary. Therefore, in response to U.S. Steel’s and Hylsa’s withdrawals of their requests for administrative reviews as well as the fact that there is no evidence that TAMSA had any shipments of subject merchandise during the POR pursuant to 19 CFR § 351.213(d)(1) and (d)(3), the Department hereby rescinds the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on OCTG from Mexico for the period August 1, 2005, through July 31, 2006. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 41 days after the date of publication of this rescission of administrative review. See section 356.8(a) of the Department’s regulations.

Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: In response to requests from Hylsa S.A. de C.V (``Hylsa''), a 
Mexican manufacturer of oil country tubular goods (``OCTG''), and 
United States Steel Corporation (``petitioner''), the Department of 
Commerce (``the Department'') initiated an administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on OCTG from Mexico. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 71 FR 57465 
(September 29, 2006). This administrative review covered the period 
August 1, 2005, through July 31, 2006. We are now rescinding this 
review due to requests by parties to withdraw from the review.

EFFECTIVE DATE: August 20, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John Drury or Angelica Mendoza, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office 7, Import Administration, International Trade

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Department published an antidumping duty order on OCTG from 
Mexico on August 11, 1995. See Antidumping Duty Order: Oil Country 
Tubular Goods from Mexico, 60 FR 41056 (August 11, 1995). The 
Department published a notice of ``Opportunity to Request an 
Administrative Review'' of the antidumping duty order for the period 
August 1, 2005, through July 31, 2006, on August 1, 2006. See 
Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended 
Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 71 FR 
43441 (August 1, 2006). Hylsa requested that the Department conduct an 
administrative review of its sales subject to the antidumping duty 
order on OCTG from Mexico on August 31, 2006. In addition, petitioner 
United States Steel Corporation (``U.S. Steel'') requested that the 
Department conduct an administrative review of sales of merchandise 
covered by the order by Hylsa and Tubos de Acero de Mexico, S.A. 
(``TAMSA'') on August 31, 2006. In response to the requests from Hylsa 
and U.S. Steel, the Department published the initiation of the 
antidumping duty administrative review on OCTG from Mexico on September 
29, 2006. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 71 FR 57465 (September 29, 2006).
    The Department issued questionnaires to both Hylsa and TAMSA on 
October 11, 2006. The Department received responses from Hylsa on 
November 21, 2006, and December 20, 2007. The Department issued a 
supplemental questionnaire on February 16, 2007. Hylsa submitted the 
supplemental response on March 16, 2007.
    On November 1, 2006, TAMSA submitted a letter to the Department 
stating that it had no shipments of OCTG to the United States during 
the period of review. The Department issued a ``No Shipment Inquiry'' 
to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') on February 5, 2007, to 
confirm that there were no shipments or entries of OCTG from Mexico 
exported by TAMSA during the period of review (``POR'') of the instant 
administrative review. The Department requested further information 
from CBP on February 28, 2007, to which CBP responded on April 5, 2007. 
The Department placed this information on the record of this proceeding 
on May 15, 2007. See Memorandum to the File from John Drury, Senior 
Case Analyst - Receipt of Documents from Customs and Border Protection 
Regarding Entries of Oil Country Tubular Goods from Mexico.
    The Department extended the time limits for the preliminary results 
of this review on May 3, 2007. See Oil Country Tubular Goods from 
Mexico: Extension of Time Limits for the Preliminary Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 24562 (May 3, 2007).
    On June 22, 2007, the Department revoked the antidumping duty order 
on OCTG from Mexico. See Oil Country Tubular Goods from Argentina, 
Italy, Japan, Korea, and Mexico; Revocation of Antidumping Duty Orders 
Pursuant to Second Five-year (Sunset) Reviews, 72 FR 34442 (June 22, 
2007).
    U.S. Steel withdrew its request for review with respect to Hylsa on 
July 13, 2007, and withdrew its request for review with respect to 
TAMSA on July 24, 2007. Hylsa withdrew its request for review on July 
31, 2007.

Rescission of the Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR Sec.  351.213(d)(3), the Secretary may rescind 
an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the Secretary 
concludes that there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject 
merchandise, as the case may be, during the period covered by the 
review. Also, pursuant to 19 CFR Sec.  351.213(d)(1), the Secretary 
will rescind an administrative review under this section, in whole or 
in part, if a party that requested a review withdraws the request 
within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of 
the requested review. The Secretary may extend this time limit if the 
Secretary decides that it is reasonable to do so. See 19 CFR Sec.  
351.213(d)(1). U.S. Steel's and Hylsa's requests are past the 90-day 
time limit; however, we find that it is reasonable to extend this 
deadline for the following reasons: (1) the Department has revoked this 
antidumping duty order, and (2) all parties that requested reviews have 
withdrawn their requests and no party has objected to the termination 
of the review. Therefore, the Department

[[Page 46440]]

determines that the continuation of the administrative review is not 
necessary. Therefore, in response to U.S. Steel's and Hylsa's 
withdrawals of their requests for administrative reviews as well as the 
fact that there is no evidence that TAMSA had any shipments of subject 
merchandise during the POR pursuant to 19 CFR Sec.  351.213(d)(1) and 
(d)(3), the Department hereby rescinds the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on OCTG from Mexico for the period August 1, 
2005, through July 31, 2006. The Department intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 41 days after the date of publication of this 
rescission of administrative review. See section 356.8(a) of the 
Department's regulations.
    This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR Sec.  351.305(a)(3). 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 terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 
777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR Sec.  
351.213(d)(4).
