SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On March 15, 2005, the Department published the final results of the administrative review for certain cut-tolength carbon steel plate from Romania covering the period August 1, 2002, through July 31, 2003. See Certain Cutto-Length Carbon Steel Plate from Romania: Notice of Final Results and Final Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 12651 (March 15, 2005) (Final Results), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. On April 13, 2005, Mittal Steel Galati S.A. (Mittal) filed a summons at the CIT challenging the Final Results. On July 18, 2007, the Court issued its opinion in Mittal Steel remanding two issues to the Department (i.e., the Department’s decision to value iron scrap as a material input and the Department’s choice of a surrogate value for limestone), and affirming the Department on a third issue (i.e., the Department’s rejection of the use of data from Mittal’s Algerian affiliate in deriving surrogate financial ratios). The CIT also did not order the re-liquidation of certain entries of subject merchandise that were liquidated prior to the expiration of the statutory time limit for appeal, and prior to Mittal’s application for a preliminary injunction, as Mittal had requested. In accordance with the CIT’s remand order, the Department filed its remand results on October 1, 2007. In those remand results, the Department provided an offset for scrap generated and re-used in the production process by Mittal, and reconsidered its valuation of the limestone input used to manufacture cut-to-length carbon steel plate for this proceeding. As a result, the Department recalculated the antidumping duty rate applicable to Mittal at 7.29 percent for the period of review. On November 7, 2007, the CIT affirmed the Department’s final results pursuant to remand. See Mittal Steel Galati S.A., Formerly Known as Ispat Sidex S.A. v. United States, Slip Op. 07–164 (CIT November 7, 2007) . There was no appeal of the CIT’s decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit filed within the appeal period. Therefore, the CIT’s decision is now final and conclusive. Amendment to Final Results We are now amending the final results of this administrative review to reflect the final and conclusive decision PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of the CIT. The changes to our calculations with respect to Mittal resulted in a change in the weightedaverage margin from 13.50 percent to 7.29 percent for the period of review. The Department will instruct CBP to liquidate entries of certain cut-to-length carbon steel plate from Romania produced by, exported to, or imported into the United States by Mittal during the review period at the assessment rates the Department calculated for these amended final results of review. We intend to issue the assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these amended final results of review. We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended. Dated: January 11, 2008.

Commerce (the Department) pursuant to the CIT's remand of the final 
results of the antidumping duty administrative review of the

Romania. See Mittal Steel Galati S.A., Formerly Known as Ispat Sidex 
S.A. v. United States, Slip Op. 07-110 (CIT July 18, 2007) (Mittal 
Steel). As the CIT's decision affirming the final remand results was

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On March 15, 2005, the Department published the final results of 
the administrative review for certain cut-to-length carbon steel plate 
from Romania covering the period August 1, 2002, through July 31, 2003. 
See Certain Cut-to-Length Carbon Steel Plate from Romania: Notice of 
Final Results and Final Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review, 70 FR 12651 (March 15, 2005) (Final Results), 
and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. On April 13, 2005, 
Mittal Steel Galati S.A. (Mittal) filed a summons at the CIT 
challenging the Final Results. On July 18, 2007, the Court issued its 
opinion in Mittal Steel remanding two issues to the Department (i.e., 
the Department's decision to value iron scrap as a material input and 
the Department's choice of a surrogate value for limestone), and 
affirming the Department on a third issue (i.e., the Department's 
rejection of the use of data from Mittal's Algerian affiliate in 
deriving surrogate financial ratios). The CIT also did not order the 
re-liquidation of certain entries of subject merchandise that were 
liquidated prior to the expiration of the statutory time limit for 
appeal, and prior to Mittal's application for a preliminary injunction, 
as Mittal had requested.
    In accordance with the CIT's remand order, the Department filed its 
remand results on October 1, 2007. In those remand results, the 
Department provided an offset for scrap generated and re-used in the 
production process by Mittal, and reconsidered its valuation of the 
limestone input used to manufacture cut-to-length carbon steel plate 
for this proceeding. As a result, the Department recalculated the 
antidumping duty rate applicable to Mittal at 7.29 percent for the 
period of review.
    On November 7, 2007, the CIT affirmed the Department's final 
results pursuant to remand. See Mittal Steel Galati S.A., Formerly 
Known as Ispat Sidex S.A. v. United States, Slip Op. 07-164 (CIT 
November 7, 2007) . There was no appeal of the CIT's decision to the 
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit filed within the appeal 
period. Therefore, the CIT's decision is now final and conclusive.

Amendment to Final Results

    We are now amending the final results of this administrative review 
to reflect the final and conclusive decision of the CIT. The changes to 
our calculations with respect to Mittal resulted in a change in the 
weighted-average margin from 13.50 percent to 7.29 percent for the 
period of review. The Department will instruct CBP to liquidate entries 
of certain cut-to-length carbon steel plate from Romania produced by, 
exported to, or imported into the United States by Mittal during the 
review period at the assessment rates the Department calculated for 
these amended final results of review. We intend to issue the 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of 
these amended final results of review.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended.
