Review: Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars From Latvia

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On June 4, 2007, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published the preliminary results of its fifth administrative review of 
the antidumping duty order on steel concrete reinforcing bars (rebar) 
from Latvia. This review covers sales of rebar with respect to one 
producer of the subject merchandise, Joint Stock Company Liepajas 
Metalurgs (LM). The period of review (POR) is September 1, 2005, 
through August 31, 2006. We provided interested parties with an 
opportunity to comment on the preliminary results of this review, but 
received no comments. The final results do not differ from the 
preliminary results of this review. We will instruct the U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection to assess importer-specific antidumping duties on 
the subject merchandise exported by LM.

DATES: Effective Date: October 9, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David Layton at (202) 482-0371; AD/CVD 
Operations, Office 1, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street & Constitution 
Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    In the preliminary results of this review (see Notice of 
Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Steel 
Concrete Reinforcing Bars from Latvia, 72 FR 30773 (June 4, 2007) 
(``Preliminary Results'')), the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary 
Results. No comments were received.

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by this order is all steel concrete reinforcing 
bars sold in straight lengths, currently classifiable in the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under item numbers 
7214.20.00, 7228.30.8050, 7222.11.0050, 7222.30.0000, 7228.60.6000, 
7228.20.1000, or any other tariff item number. Specifically excluded 
are plain rounds (i.e., non-deformed or smooth bars) and rebar that has 
been further processed through bending or coating. HTSUS subheadings 
are provided for convenience and customs purposes. The written 
description of the scope of the order is dispositive.

Final Results of Review

    These final results remain unchanged from the Preliminary Results. 
We provided an opportunity for parties to comment on our Preliminary 
Results and received no comments.
    Therefore, we find that the following percentage weighted-average 
margin exists for the period of September 1, 2005, through August 31, 
2006:

Assessment

    The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b). We calculate importer-specific 
duty assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of 
antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total 
quantity of the sales for that importer. Where the assessment rate is 
above de minimis, we instruct CBP to assess duties on all entries of 
subject merchandise by that importer. As explained in the Preliminary 
Results, the Department will apply the importer-specific assessment 
rates calculated in the previous review. The Department intends to 
issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of 
publication of these final results of review.
    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 POR produced by companies included in 
these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not 
know their merchandise was destined for the United States. In such 
instances, the Department 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 Deposits

    The following cash deposit requirements were effective upon 
publication of the final results of the previous administrative review 
(see Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: 
Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars from Latvia, 71 FR 74900 (December 13, 
2006)) for all shipments of rebar from Latvia entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after December 13, 2006, as 
provided by section 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``the Act''), and will continue to be in effect: (1) The cash deposit 
rate listed above for LM will be 5.94 percent; (2) for previously 
reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit 
rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the 
most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this 
review, a prior review, or the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) 
investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of 
the merchandise; 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 17.21 percent, the ``All 
Others'' rate established in the LTFV investigation. These cash deposit 
requirements shall remain in effect until further notice.
    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 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 antidumping duties occurred, and in the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also is the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely written 
notification of the return/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.
    We are issuing and publishing these results and notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    October 2, 2007.

Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
