See Letters to the International Trade Commission regarding the Sunset Reviews of the AD/ CVD Orders Initiated in July 2007, dated July 22, 2008, and August 20, 2008. On October 31, 2008, the Department published a notice extending the time limit for the completion of the final results of this review by 40 days until December 8, 2008. See Certain Frozen Fish Fillets From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results of the Expedited Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order, 73 FR 64913 (October 31, 2008). Extension of Time Limits for Final Results In accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B) of the Act, the Department may extend the 120–day time period for making its determination by not more than 90 days, if it determines that a review is extraordinarily complicated. As set forth in section 751(c)(5)(C)(i) of the Act, the Department may treat a sunset review as extraordinarily complicated if there are a large number of issues, as is the case in this proceeding. Therefore, the Department has determined, pursuant to section 751(c)(5)(C)(i) of the Act, that the first sunset review of frozen fish fillets from Vietnam is extraordinarily complicated. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for the completion of the final results by an additional 50 days, from December 8, 2008, to no later than January 27, 2009, in accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B) of the Act. This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(c)(5)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: December 3, 2008.

Final Rescission of Administrative Review In the Preliminary Results, the Department issued a notice of its intent to rescind this review because it was satisfied that there were no U.S. entries of subject merchandise from the respondents (i.e., CST and CSN) during the POR as indicated by the record. See Preliminary Results, at 73 FR 51443. As the Department received no comments on its intent to rescind this review, it continues to find that rescission of the review is appropriate. Therefore, the Department is rescinding this review. Assessment Rates The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) 15 days after the date of publication of this rescission of administrative review. The Department will direct CBP to assess antidumping duties for CST and CSN at the cash deposit rate in effect on the date of entry for entries during the period March 1, 2007, through February 29, 2008. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this review is being rescinded, of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 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 the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 75081 with the regulations and terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). Dated: December 3, 2008. Stephen J.

Certain Hot-Rolled, Flat-Rolled Carbon Quality Steel Products 
from Brazil: Final Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: In response to a request from Nucor Corporation (``Nucor''), a 
domestic interested party, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
certain hot-rolled, flat-rolled carbon quality steel products (``hot 
rolled steel'') from Brazil. This review covers two manufacturer/
exporters of the subject merchandise, Companhia Siderurgica Nacional 
(``CSN'') and Companhia Siderurgica de Tubarao (``CST''), and covers 
the period March 1, 2007, through February 29, 2008. No interested 
party commented on the Department's intent to rescind this review upon 
determining that the parties subject to this review did not have 
entries during the period of review (``POR'') for which to assess 
antidumping duties.

EFFECTIVE DATE: December 10, 2008.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John Drury or Angelica Mendoza, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office 7, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and

Scope of the Order

    For purposes of the order, the products covered are certain hot-
rolled flat-rolled carbon-quality steel products of a rectangular

successively superimposed layers) regardless of thickness, and in 
straight lengths, of a thickness 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

Final Rescission of Administrative Review

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department issued a notice of its 
intent to rescind this review because it was satisfied that there were 
no U.S. entries of subject merchandise from the respondents (i.e., CST 
and CSN) during the POR as indicated by the record. See Preliminary 
Results, at 73 FR 51443. As the Department received no comments on its 
intent to rescind this review, it continues to find that rescission of 
the review is appropriate. Therefore, the Department is rescinding this 
review.

Assessment Rates

    The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to the U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') 15 days after the date of 
publication of this rescission of administrative review. The Department 
will direct CBP to assess antidumping duties for CST and CSN at the 
cash deposit rate in effect on the date of entry for entries during the 
period March 1, 2007, through February 29, 2008.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this 
review is being rescinded, of their responsibility under 19 CFR 
351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 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 the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to 
comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 
777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(4).

    Dated: December 3, 2008.
Stephen J. Claeys,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
