SUMMARY: On February 1, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty order on certain steel concrete reinforcing bars (rebar) PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 from Turkey. See Initiation of Five-year (‘‘Sunset’’) Reviews, 73 FR 6128 (Feb. 1, 2008). Pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the International Trade Commission (ITC) determined that revocation of this order would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bar From Turkey; Determination, 73 FR 77841 (Dec. 19, 2008) (ITC Final). Therefore, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(1)(iii), the Department is revoking the antidumping duty order on rebar from Turkey. EFFECTIVE DATE: March 26, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elizabeth Eastwood, AD/CVD Operations, Office 2, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–3874. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scope of the Order The product covered by this order is all stock deformed steel concrete reinforcing bars sold in straight lengths and coils. This includes all hot–rolled deformed rebar rolled from billet steel, rail steel, axle steel, or low–alloy steel. It excludes (i) plain round rebar, (ii) rebar that a processor has further worked or fabricated, and (iii) all coated rebar. Deformed rebar is currently classifiable under subheadings 7213.10.000 and 7214.20.000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes. The written description of the scope of this order is dispositive. Background On April 17, 1997, the Department issued the antidumping duty order on rebar from Turkey. See Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars From Turkey, 62 FR 18748 (Apr. 17, 1997). On February 1, 2008, the Department initiated, and the ITC instituted, a sunset review of the antidumping duty order on rebar from Turkey. See Initiation of Five-year (‘‘Sunset’’) Reviews, 73 FR 6128 (Feb. 1, 2008). As a result of its sunset review of this order, the Department found that revocation of the antidumping duty order would be likely to lead to the continuation or recurrence of dumping.

    In accordance with section 351.213(b) of the regulations, an 
interested party as defined by section 771(9) of the Act may request in 
writing that the Secretary conduct an administrative review. The 
Department changed its requirements for requesting reviews for 
countervailing duty orders. For both antidumping and countervailing 
duty reviews, the interested party must specify the individual 
producers or exporters covered by an antidumping finding or an 
antidumping or countervailing duty order or suspension agreement for 
which it is requesting a review, and the requesting party must state 
why it desires the Secretary to review those particular producers or 
exporters.\2\ If the interested party intends for the Secretary to 
review sales of merchandise by an exporter (or a producer if that 
producer also exports merchandise from other suppliers) which were 
produced in more than one country of origin and each country of origin 
is subject to a separate order, then the interested party must state 
specifically, on an order-by-order basis, which exporter(s) the request 
is intended to cover.

    \2\ If the review request involves a non-market economy and the 
parties subject to the review request do not qualify for separate 
rates, all other exporters of subject merchandise from the non-
market economy country who do not have a separate rate will be 
covered by the review as part of the single entity of which the 
named firms are a part.

    Please note that, for any party the Department was unable to locate 
in prior segments, the Department will not accept a request for an 
administrative review of that party absent new information as to the 
party's location. Moreover, if the interested party who files a request 
for review is unable to locate the producer or exporter for which it 
requested the review, the interested party must provide an explanation 
of the attempts it made to locate the producer or exporter at the same 
time it files its request for review, in order for the Secretary to 
determine if the interested party's attempts were reasonable, pursuant 
to section 351.303(f)(3)(ii) of the regulations.

section 351.303(f)(l)(i) of the regulations, a copy of each request 
must be served on every party on the Department's service list.
    The Department will publish in the Federal Register a notice of
