Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 241 / Monday, December 17, 2007 / Notices 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) 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 September 7, 2007, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published in the Federal Register the preliminary results 
of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on stainless 
steel wire rod from Sweden, covering the period September 1, 2005, 
through August 31, 2006. See Stainless Steel Wire Rod from Sweden: 
Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 
51411 (September 7, 2007). The current deadline for the final results 
in this review is January 5, 2008.

Extension of Time Limits for Final Results of Review

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue the final results of the 
administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 120 days 
after the date on which the preliminary results are published in the 
Federal Register. However, if it is not practicable to complete the 
review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows 
the Department to extend the time limit for the final results to 180 
days from the date of publication of the preliminary results.
    The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the 
final results of the administrative review of stainless steel wire rod 
from Sweden within the current time frame because the Department 
requires more time to fully analyze the arguments and comments received 
from the parties participating in this review with respect to the

[[Page 71360]]

product comparison criteria currently being used in this case.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the 
Department is extending the time for completion of the final results of 
this review until March 5, 2008, which is 180 days after the date on 
which notice of the preliminary results was published in the Federal 
Register.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777 (i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: December 11, 2007.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
