Background CIPSEA (Pub. L. 107–347, Title V) and the International Investment and Trade in Services Survey Act (Pub. L. 94–472, 22 United States Code (U.S.C.) 3101– 3108) allow BEA and BLS to share certain business data for exclusively statistical purposes. Section 524(d) of the CIPSEA requires a Federal Register notice announcing the intent to share data (allowing 60 days for public comment), since BEA respondents were required by law to report the data. Section 524(d) also requires us to provide information about the terms of the agreement for data sharing. For purposes of this notice, BEA has decided to group these terms by three categories. The categories are: • Shared data. • Statistical purposes for the shared data. • Data access and confidentiality. Title 22, U.S.C. 3104 protects the confidentiality of the data to be provided by BEA to BLS. The data may be seen only by persons sworn to uphold the confidentiality of the information. Access to the shared data will be restricted to specifically authorized personnel and will be provided for statistical purposes only. Any results of this research are subject to BEA disclosure protection. All BLS employees with access to these data will become BEA Special Sworn Employees—meaning that they, under penalty of law, must uphold the data’s confidentiality. Shared Data BEA proposes to provide BLS with data from its surveys of U.S. direct investment abroad, foreign direct investment in the United States, and U.S. international services transactions. BLS will use these data for statistical purposes exclusively. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES (202) 606–9853, via the Internet at Maria.Borga@bea.gov, or by fax on (202) 606–5318. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: International Trade Administration Statistical Purposes for the Shared Data Data collected in BEA’s surveys of direct investment are used to develop estimates of the financing and operations of U.S. parent companies, their foreign affiliates, and U.S. affiliates of foreign companies, and estimates of transactions between parents and affiliates. Data collected in BEA’s surveys of U.S. international services transactions are used to develop estimates of services transactions between U.S. persons (in a broad legal sense, including companies) and foreign persons. These estimates are published in the Survey of Current Business, BEA’s monthly journal; in other BEA publications; and on BEA’s Web site at http://www.bea.gov/. All data are collected under sections 3101–3108, of Title 22, U.S.C. The shared data will be used for several exclusively statistical purposes by both agencies, such as the production of price indexes for imported and exported services and the making of international comparisons between the hourly compensation costs at the foreign affiliates of U.S. multinational companies and the average costs for Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce. SUMMARY: On September 12, 2007, the Department of Commerce published the preliminary results of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel wire rods from India and a notice of intent to rescind the antidumping duty administrative review in part. The administrative review currently covers one manufacturer/ exporter, Mukand Ltd., and the review period is December 1, 2005, through November 30, 2006. We stated our intent to rescind the review with respect to the manufacturer/exporter Sunflag Iron & Steel Co., Ltd., in our preliminary results.We have received no comments from interested parties on our preliminary results. We have made no changes to our calculations for the final results of review and, accordingly, have found that Mukand Ltd. made sales at less than normal value in the U.S. market.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On September 12, 2007, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel wire rods from India and a notice of intent to rescind the antidumping duty administrative review in part. See Stainless Steel Wire Rods from India: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Notice of Intent to Rescind Antidumping Duty Administrative Review in Part, 72 FR 52079 (September 12, 2007). We invited interested parties to comment on the preliminary results but received no comments from the parties. Rescission of Review in Part In the preliminary results of review, we stated our intent to rescind the administrative review with respect to sales of stainless steel wire rods (wire rods) made by Sunflag Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. (Sunflag), during the period of review because we had initiated a new– shipper review of these sales. See Stainless Steel Wire Rod from India: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty New–Shipper Review, 72 FR 13088 (March 20, 2007). We thus preliminarily determined that it was appropriate to rescind the administrative review with respect to Sunflag pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(j), which permits a rescission when there are multiple reviews of the sales of a company. We received no comments from interested parties concerning our intent to rescind. Because Sunflag’s sales are subject to a new–shipper review, we are rescinding the administrative review with respect to Sunflag pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(j). Scope of the Order The merchandise under review is wire rods, which are hot–rolled or hot– rolled annealed and/or pickled rounds, squares, octagons, hexagons or other shapes, in coils. Wire rods are made of alloy steels containing, by weight, 1.2 percent or less of carbon and 10.5 E:\FR\FM\04DEN1.SGM 04DEN1 68124 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 232 / Tuesday, December 4, 2007 / Notices percent or more of chromium, with or without other elements. These products are only manufactured by hot–rolling and are normally sold in coiled form, and are of solid cross section. The majority of wire rods sold in the United States are round in cross-section shape, annealed, and pickled. The most common size is 5.5 millimeters in diameter. The wire rods subject to this order are currently classifiable under subheadings 7221.00.0005, 7221.00.0015, 7221.00.0030, 7221.00.0045, and 7221.00.0075 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise subject to the order is dispositive of whether the merchandise is covered by the order. No Changes Since the Preliminary Results Because the Department received no comments on the preliminary results of review and it finds no other basis for changes in these results, it has made no changes in the final results from the preliminary results of review. Accordingly, we find that Mukand Ltd. (Mukand) made sales at less than normal value in the U.S. market during the period of review. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Final Results of the Review We determine that the weighted– average dumping margin on Mukand’s sales of stainless steel wire rods from India for the period December 1, 2005, through November 30, 2006, is 11.56 percent.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On September 12, 2007, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on stainless steel wire rods from India and a 
notice of intent to rescind the antidumping duty administrative review 
in part. See Stainless Steel Wire Rods from India: Preliminary Results 
of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Notice of Intent to 
Rescind Antidumping Duty Administrative Review in Part, 72 FR 52079 
(September 12, 2007). We invited interested parties to comment on the 
preliminary results but received no comments from the parties.

Rescission of Review in Part

    In the preliminary results of review, we stated our intent to 
rescind the administrative review with respect to sales of stainless 
steel wire rods (wire rods) made by Sunflag Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. 
(Sunflag), during the period of review because we had initiated a new-
shipper review of these sales. See Stainless Steel Wire Rod from India: 
Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty New-Shipper Review, 72 FR 
13088 (March 20, 2007). We thus preliminarily determined that it was 
appropriate to rescind the administrative review with respect to 
Sunflag pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(j), which permits a rescission when 
there are multiple reviews of the sales of a company.
    We received no comments from interested parties concerning our 
intent to rescind. Because Sunflag's sales are subject to a new-shipper 
review, we are rescinding the administrative review with respect to 
Sunflag pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(j).

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise under review is wire rods, which are hot-rolled or 
hot-rolled annealed and/or pickled rounds, squares, octagons, hexagons 
or other shapes, in coils. Wire rods are made of alloy steels 
containing, by weight, 1.2 percent or less of carbon and 10.5

[[Page 68124]]

percent or more of chromium, with or without other elements. These 
products are only manufactured by hot-rolling and are normally sold in 
coiled form, and are of solid cross section. The majority of wire rods 
sold in the United States are round in cross-section shape, annealed, 
and pickled. The most common size is 5.5 millimeters in diameter.
    The wire rods subject to this order are currently classifiable 
under subheadings 7221.00.0005, 7221.00.0015, 7221.00.0030, 
7221.00.0045, and 7221.00.0075 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for 
convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the 
merchandise subject to the order is dispositive of whether the 
merchandise is covered by the order.

No Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Because the Department received no comments on the preliminary 
results of review and it finds no other basis for changes in these 
results, it has made no changes in the final results from the 
preliminary results of review. Accordingly, we find that Mukand Ltd. 
(Mukand) made sales at less than normal value in the U.S. market during 
the period of review.

Final Results of the Review

    We determine that the weighted-average dumping margin on Mukand's 
sales of stainless steel wire rods from India for the period December 
1, 2005, through November 30, 2006, is 11.56 percent.

Assessment Rates

    The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries. We intend to issue appropriate assessment instructions 
directly to CBP 15 days after publication of these final results of 
review. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we have calculated a 
customer/importer-specific, per-unit amount for entries of subject 
merchandise during the period of review.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). This 
clarification applies to period-of-review entries of subject 
merchandise produced by Mukand where it did not know that its 
merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we 
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.

Cash-Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of this notice of final results of administrative review 
for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication, 
consistent with section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) the cash-deposit rate 
for Mukand will be 11.56 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 original less-than-fair-value 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) the cash-deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be the ``all others'' rate of 48.80 percent, which is the 
``all others'' rate established in the less-than-fair-value 
investigation. See Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair 
Value: Certain Stainless Steel Wire Rods from India, 58 FR 54110, 
(October 20, 1993). These cash-deposit rates shall remain in effect 
until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    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 the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to an 
administrative protective order of their responsibility concerning the 
disposition of proprietary information disclosed under such an order in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely notification of the return 
or destruction of administrative-protective-order materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to 
comply with the regulations and the terms of an administrative 
protective order is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
