However, for subject merchandise exported by New–Tec, the cash–deposit rate will be that established in the final results of review; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash– deposit rate will continue to be the exporter–specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise, which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash–deposit rate will be the PRC–wide rate of 70.71 percent; and (4) for all non–PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not received their own rate, the cash– deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter that supplied that non–PRC exporter. These deposit requirements shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Interested Parties This notice 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 the review period. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.402(f)(3), failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO as explained in the administrative protective order itself. 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. This notice of the final results of this administrative review is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: December 7, 2007. David M.

SUMMARY: On August 9, 2007, the Department of Commerce published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain hot–rolled carbon steel flat products from Romania. This review covers sales of subject merchandise made by Mittal Steel Galati S.A. The period of review is November 1, 2005, through October 31, 2006. Based on our analysis of comments received, we have made a change to our calculations; this change did not result in a change to the margin for Mittal Steel Galati S.A. Therefore, these final results are identical to our preliminary results. The final results are listed below in the ‘‘Final Results of Review’’ section. EFFECTIVE DATE: (December 17, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On August 9, 2007, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the antidumping duty administrative review of certain hot–rolled carbon steel flat products from Romania (Certain Hot– Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products From Romania: Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 44821 (August 9, 2007) (Preliminary Results)). The review covers one manufacturer, Mittal Steel Galati S.A. (MS Galati). We invited parties to comment on our preliminary results of review. MS Galati and one domestic interested party, United States Steel Corporation, filed case briefs on September 12, 2007. MS Galati and two domestic interested parties, United States Steel Corporation and Nucor Corporation, filed rebuttal briefs on September 19, 2007. On October 31, 2007, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the International Trade Commission determined that revocation of the antidumping duty order on certain hot–rolled carbon steel flat products from Romania would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury. See Hot Rolled Steel Products from Argentina, China, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Romania, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, and Ukraine, 72 FR 61676 (October 31, 2007), and USITC Publication 3956 (October 2007), entitled Hot Rolled Steel Products from Argentina, China, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Romania, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, and Ukraine: Investigation Nos. 701 TA 404 408 and 731 TA 898 902 and 904- 908 (Review). As a result of this determination, the Department revoked the antidumping duty order on certain hot–rolled carbon steel flat products from Romania, effective as of November 29, 2006. See Certain Hot–Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from Argentina, Kazakhstan, Romania, and South Africa: Revocation of Antidumping Duty and Countervailing Duty Orders, 72 FR 65293 (November 20, 2007).

Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, to David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated December 7, 2007, which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues which the parties have raised and to which we have responded is attached to this notice as an appendix. Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues raised in this review and corresponding recommendations in this public memorandum which is on file in Import Administration’s Central Records Unit, Room B–099 of the main Department building. In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memorandum is available on the Internet at http://ia ita.doc.gov/frn/index.html. The paper copy and electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of comments received, we have made a methodological change to our calculations as reflected in our Preliminary Results (see Comment 1 of the Decision Memorandum). Final Results of Review As a result of our review, we determine that the following weighted– average percentage margin exists for the period November 1, 2005, through October 31, 2006: Manufacturer/exporter Margin (percent) ebenthall on PROD1PC69 with NOTICES Mittal Steel Galati S.A. 11.02 Assessment Rate 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 an importer–specific assessment rate by dividing the total dumping duties due by the entered value of sales we analyzed. We will direct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries at this rate. See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 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 period of review produced by the company included in these final results of review for which the reviewed company did not know its merchandise was destined VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:28 Dec 14, 2007 Jkt 214001 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. For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). Cash–Deposit Requirements Because the Department has revoked the order as discussed in the Background section, there will be no cash–deposit requirements for entries of this merchandise on or after November 29, 2006. Notification This notice also serves as the final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return/destruction or conversion to judicial protective order of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Failure to comply is a violation of the APO. These final results of review are issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: December 7, 2007. David M.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 9, 2007, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published the preliminary results of the antidumping duty 
administrative review of certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat products 
from Romania (Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products From 
Romania: Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, 72 FR 44821 (August 9, 2007) (Preliminary Results)). The review 
covers one manufacturer, Mittal Steel Galati S.A. (MS Galati).
    We invited parties to comment on our preliminary results of review. 
MS Galati and one domestic interested party, United States Steel 
Corporation, filed case briefs on September 12, 2007. MS Galati and two 
domestic interested parties, United States Steel Corporation and Nucor 
Corporation, filed rebuttal briefs on September 19, 2007.
    On October 31, 2007, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (the Act), the International Trade Commission 
determined that revocation of the antidumping duty order on certain 
hot-rolled carbon steel flat products from Romania would not be likely 
to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury. See Hot 
Rolled Steel Products from Argentina, China, India, Indonesia, 
Kazakhstan, Romania, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, and Ukraine, 72 FR 
61676 (October 31, 2007), and USITC Publication 3956 (October 2007),

Ukraine: Investigation Nos. 701 TA 404 408 and 731 TA 898 902 and 904- 
908 (Review). As a result of this determination, the Department revoked 
the antidumping duty order on certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat 
products from Romania, effective as of November 29, 2006. See Certain 
Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from Argentina, Kazakhstan, 
Romania, and South Africa: Revocation of Antidumping Duty and 
Countervailing Duty Orders, 72 FR 65293 (November 20, 2007).

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are certain hot-rolled carbon 
steel flat products of a rectangular shape, of a width of 0.5 inch or 
greater, neither clad, plated, nor coated with metal and whether or not 
painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other non-metallic 
substances, in coils (whether or not in successively superimposed 
layers), regardless of thickness, and in straight length, of a 
thickness of less than 4.75 mm and of a width measuring at least 10 
times the thickness. Universal mill plate (i.e., flat-rolled products 
rolled on four faces or in a closed box pass, of a width exceeding 150 
mm, but not exceeding 1250 mm, and of a thickness of not less than 4.0 
mm, not in coils and without patterns in relief) of a thickness not 
less than 4.0 mm is not included within the scope of this order.
    Specifically included within the scope of this order are vacuum 
degassed, fully stabilized (commonly referred to as interstitial-free 
(IF)) steels, high strength low alloy (HSLA) steels, and the substrate 
for motor lamination steels. 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 as 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 (HTSUS), 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:

Decision Memorandum'' (Decision Memorandum) from Stephen J. Claeys, 
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, to David M. 
Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated December 
7, 2007, which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues 
which the parties have raised and to which we have responded is 
attached to this notice as an appendix. Parties can find a complete 
discussion of all issues raised in this review and corresponding 
recommendations in this public memorandum which is on file in Import 
Administration's Central Records Unit, Room B-099 of the main 
Department building. In addition, a complete version of the Decision 
Memorandum is available on the Internet at http://ia ita.doc.gov/frn/
index.html. The paper copy and electronic version of the Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of comments received, we have made a 
methodological change to our calculations as reflected in our 
Preliminary Results (see Comment 1 of the Decision Memorandum).

Final Results of Review

    As a result of our review, we determine that the following 
weighted-average percentage margin exists for the period November 1, 
2005, through October 31, 2006:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Manufacturer/exporter                  Margin (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mittal Steel Galati S.A.............................               11.02
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rate

    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 an 
importer-specific assessment rate by dividing the total dumping duties 
due by the entered value of sales we analyzed. We will direct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries at this rate. See 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1).
    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 period of review produced by the company 
included in these final results of review for which the reviewed 
company did not know 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. For a full discussion of this 
clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

Cash-Deposit Requirements

    Because the Department has revoked the order as discussed in the 
Background section, there will be no cash-deposit requirements for 
entries of this merchandise on or after November 29, 2006.

Notification

    This notice also serves as the final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return/destruction or conversion to judicial protective 
order of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 
19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Failure to comply is a violation of the APO.
    These final results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: December 7, 2007.
David M. Spooner,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
