On November 30, 2007, we received a timely request for a new shipper review from Hunan Valin Xiangtan Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. (‘‘Hunan Valin’’) in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(d)(2). Hunan Valin has certified that it produced and exported the CTL steel plate on which it based its request for a new shipper review. The Department initially denied Hunan Valin’s request for a new shipper review in this case. However, as a result of subsequent information submitted by the requester, the Department has reconsidered its decision and is now initiating the new shipper review.

Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), Hunan Valin certified that, since the initiation of the investigation, it has never been affiliated with any exporter or producer who exported CTL steel plate to the United States during the POI, including those not individually examined during the investigation. As required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B), Hunan Valin also certified that its export activities were not controlled by the central government of the PRC. In addition to the certifications described above, the exporter submitted documentation establishing the following: (1) The date on which it first shipped CTL steel plate for export to the United States and the date on which the CTL steel plate was first entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption; (2) the volume of its first shipment; and (3) the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The notice announcing the antidumping duty order on CTL steel plate 
from the PRC was published on October 21, 2003. See Suspension 
Agreement on Certain Cut-to-Length Carbon Steel Plate From the People's 
Republic of China; Termination of Suspension Agreement and Notice of 
Antidumping Duty Order, 68 FR 60081 (October 21, 2003). On November 30, 
2007, we received a timely request for a new shipper review from Hunan 
Valin Xiangtan Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. (``Hunan Valin'') in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.214(d)(2). Hunan Valin has certified that it produced 
and exported the CTL steel plate on which it based its request for a 
new shipper review. The Department initially denied Hunan Valin's 
request for a new shipper review in this case. However, as a result of 
subsequent information submitted by the requester, the Department has 
reconsidered its decision and is now initiating the new shipper review.

Initiation of New Shipper Reviews

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Tariff Act of 1930, 
as amended (``the Act''), and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2), Hunan Valin 
certified that it did not export CTL steel plate to the United States 
during the period of investigation (``POI''). Pursuant to section 
751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), Hunan 
Valin certified that, since the initiation of the investigation, it has 
never been affiliated with any exporter or producer who exported CTL 
steel plate to the United States during the POI, including those not 
individually examined during the investigation. As required by 19 CFR 
351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B), Hunan Valin also certified that its export 
activities were not controlled by the central government of the PRC.
    In addition to the certifications described above, the exporter 
submitted documentation establishing the following: (1) The date on 
which it first shipped CTL steel plate for export to the United States 
and the date on which the CTL steel plate was first entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption; (2) the volume of its first 
shipment; and (3) the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated 
customer in the United States.
    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(d)(1), we are initiating this new shipper review for shipments 
of CTL steel plate from the PRC produced and exported by Hunan Valin.
    The POR is November 1, 2006, through October 31, 2007. See 19 CFR 
351.214(g)(1)(i)(B). We intend to issue preliminary results of these 
reviews no later than 180 days from the date of initiation, and final 
results of these reviews no later than 270 days from the date of 
initiation. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act.
    On August 17, 2006, the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (``H.R. 4'') 
was signed into law. Section 1632 of H.R. 4 temporarily suspends the 
authority of the Department to instruct U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection to collect a bond or other security in lieu of a cash 
deposit in new shipper reviews during the period April 1, 2006, through 
June 30, 2009. Therefore, the posting of a bond or other security under 
section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act in lieu of a cash deposit is not 
available in this case. Importers of CTL steel plate manufactured and 
exported by Hunan Valin must continue to pay a cash deposit of 
estimated antidumping duties on each entry of subject merchandise at 
the current PRC-wide rate of 128.59 percent.
    Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in 
this new shipper review should submit applications for disclosure under 
administrative protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 
351.306. This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(c)(1)(i).
