SUMMARY: On July 2, 2007, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published a notice of initiation of a sunset review of the antidumping duty order on brake rotors from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’).

On the basis of the notices of intent to participate, an adequate substantive response filed on behalf of a domestic interested party and an inadequate substantive response filed on behalf of a respondent interested party (i.e., a U.S. importer), the Department conducted an expedited (120–day) sunset review of the antidumping duty order pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and section 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2) of the Department’s regulations. As a result of this sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the levels indicated in the ‘‘Final Results of Review’’ section of this notice. EFFECTIVE DATE: January 8, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 2, 2007, the Department published the notice of initiation of the second sunset review of the antidumping duty order on brake rotors from the PRC pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation Notice. On July 17, 2007, the Department received a notice of intent to participate from a domestic interested party, the Coalition for the Preservation of American Brake Drum and Rotor Aftermarket Manufacturers (‘‘petitioner’’), within the deadline specified in section 351.218(d)(1)(i) of the Department’s regulations, and from a respondent interested party, CWD, LLC (also known as Centric Parts) (‘‘CWD’’). Petitioner claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as a domestic producer of brake rotors in the United States, and CWD claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(A) of the Act as a U.S. importer of brake rotors into the United States. The Department received substantive responses from petitioner and CWD within the deadline specified in section 351.218(d)(3)(i) of the Department’s regulations and rebuttal submissions to those responses from petitioner and CWD on August 1 and August 6, 2007, respectively. On August 21, 2007, petitioner submitted to the Department a correction to its August 6, 2007, rebuttal response. On August 21, 2007, VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:32 Jan 07, 2008 Jkt 214001 the Department notified the International Trade Commission (‘‘ITC’’) that respondent interested parties did not provide an adequate substantive response in this sunset review pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act. Therefore, because we did not receive an adequate substantive response from the respondent interested party, we determined to conduct an expedited review of the order pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and section 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2) of the Department’s regulations.1 On November 5, 2007, the Department published a notice extending the time limit for the completion of the final results of this review until November 29, 2007.

Scope of the Order The products covered by this order are brake rotors made of gray cast iron, whether finished, semifinished, or unfinished, ranging in diameter from 8 to 16 inches (20.32 to 40.64 centimeters) and in weight from 8 to 45 pounds (3.63 to 20.41 kilograms). The size parameters (weight and dimension) of the brake rotors limit their use to the following types of motor vehicles: automobiles, all–terrain vehicles, vans and recreational vehicles under ‘‘one ton and a half,’’ and light trucks designated as ‘‘one ton and a half.’’ Finished brake rotors are those that are ready for sale and installation without any further operations. Semi– finished rotors are those on which the surface is not entirely smooth, and have undergone some drilling. Unfinished rotors are those which have undergone some grinding or turning. These brake rotors are for motor vehicles, and do not contain in the casting a logo of an original equipment manufacturer (‘‘OEM’’) which produces vehicles sold in the United States. (e.g., General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Honda, Toyota, Volvo).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 2, 2007, the Department published the notice of initiation 
of the second sunset review of the antidumping duty order on brake 
rotors from the PRC pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See 
Initiation Notice. On July 17, 2007, the Department received a notice 
of intent to participate from a domestic interested party, the 
Coalition for the Preservation of American Brake Drum and Rotor 
Aftermarket Manufacturers (``petitioner''), within the deadline 
specified in section 351.218(d)(1)(i) of the Department's regulations, 
and from a respondent interested party, CWD, LLC (also known as Centric 
Parts) (``CWD''). Petitioner claimed interested party status under 
section 771(9)(C) of the Act as a domestic producer of brake rotors in 
the United States, and CWD claimed interested party status under 
section 771(9)(A) of the Act as a U.S. importer of brake rotors into 
the United States. The Department received substantive responses from 
petitioner and CWD within the deadline specified in section 
351.218(d)(3)(i) of the Department's regulations and rebuttal 
submissions to those responses from petitioner and CWD on August 1 and 
August 6, 2007, respectively. On August 21, 2007, petitioner submitted 
to the Department a correction to its August 6, 2007, rebuttal 
response. On August 21, 2007, the Department notified the International 
Trade Commission (``ITC'') that respondent interested parties did not 
provide an adequate substantive response in this sunset review pursuant 
to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act. Therefore, because we did not 
receive an adequate substantive response from the respondent interested 
party, we determined to conduct an expedited review of the order 
pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and section 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2) of the Department's regulations.\1\ On November 
5, 2007, the Department published a notice extending the time limit for 
the completion of the final results of this review until November 29, 
2007. See Brake Rotors from the People's Republic of China: Extension 
of Final Results of Expedited Sunset Review of Antidumping Duty Order, 
72 FR 62430 (November 5, 2007). On December 5, 2007, the Department 
published a notice extending the time limit for the completion of the 
final results of this review until December 31, 2007. See Brake Rotors 
from the People's Republic of China: Extension of Time Limit for Final 
Results of Expedited Sunset Review of Antidumping Duty Order, 72 FR

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this order are brake rotors made of gray 
cast iron, whether finished, semifinished, or unfinished, ranging in 
diameter from 8 to 16 inches (20.32 to 40.64 centimeters) and in weight 
from 8 to 45 pounds (3.63 to 20.41 kilograms). The size parameters 
(weight and dimension) of the brake rotors limit their use to the 
following types of motor vehicles: automobiles, all-terrain vehicles, 
vans and recreational vehicles under ``one ton and a half,'' and light 
trucks designated as ``one ton and a half.''
    Finished brake rotors are those that are ready for sale and 
installation without any further operations. Semi-finished rotors are 
those on which the surface is not entirely smooth, and have undergone 
some drilling. Unfinished rotors are those which have undergone some 
grinding or turning.
    These brake rotors are for motor vehicles, and do not contain in 
the casting a logo of an original equipment manufacturer (``OEM'') 
which produces vehicles sold in the United States. (e.g., General 
Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Honda, Toyota, Volvo). Brake rotors covered in 
this order are not certified by OEM producers of vehicles sold in the 
United States. The scope also includes composite brake rotors that are 
made of gray cast iron, which contain a steel plate, but otherwise meet 
the above criteria. Excluded from the scope of this order are brake 
rotors made of gray cast iron, whether finished, semifinished, or 
unfinished, with a diameter less than 8 inches or greater than 16 
inches (less than 20.32 centimeters or greater than 40.64 centimeters) 
and a weight less than 8 pounds or greater than 45 pounds (less than 
3.63 kilograms or greater than 20.41 kilograms).\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ In a 2007 scope ruling, the Department determined that brake 
rotors produced by Federal-Mogul and certified by Ford Motor Company 
are excluded from the scope of the order. See the January 17, 2007, 
Department memorandum entitled ``Scope Ruling of the Antidumping 
Duty Order on Brake Rotors from the People's Republic of China; 
Federal-Mogul Corporation.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Brake rotors are currently classifiable under subheadings 
8708.39.5010, 8708.39.5030, and 8708.30.5030 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'').\3\ Although the HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written description of the scope of this order is dispositive.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ As of January 1, 2005, the HTSUS classification for brake 
rotors (discs) changed from 8708.39.5010 to 8708.39.5030. As of 
January 1, 2007, the HTSUS classification for brake rotors (discs) 
changed from 8708.39.5030 to 8708.30.5030. See Harmonized Tariff

    In a five-year sunset review, it is the Department's policy to 
include companies that did not begin exporting until after the order 
was issued as part of the PRC-wide entity from the investigation.\7\ 
For those companies that shipped after the order was issued, we 
determine that revocation of the antidumping duty order on brake rotors 
from the PRC would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of 
dumping at the PRC-wide percentage margin.
