This rate is based on the weighted average of the margins calculated for those companies selected for individual review, excluding de minimis margins or margins based entirely on adverse facts available, and do not change after recalculating the margins for Dongbu, POSCO and HYSCO. erowe on PROD1PC64 with NOTICES Assessment The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b). The Department calculated importer–specific duty assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of the examined sales for that importer. Where the assessment rate is above de minimis, we will instruct CBP to assess duties on all entries of subject merchandise by that importer. The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of these amended final results of review. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’’ regulation on May 6, 2003 (68 FR 23954). This clarification applies to POR entries of subject merchandise produced by companies examined in this review (i.e., companies for which a dumping margin was calculated) where the companies did not know that their merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all– others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of CORE from Korea entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of these final results, as provided by section 751(a) of the Act: (1) for companies covered by this review, the cash deposit rate will be the rate listed above; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies other than those covered by this review, the cash deposit rate will be the VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:33 Apr 27, 2009 Jkt 217001 company–specific rate established for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the less–thanfair–value investigation, but the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the subject merchandise; and (4) if neither the exporter nor the producer is a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the investigation, the cash deposit rate will be 17.70 percent, the all–others rate established in the less–than-fair– value investigation. These deposit requirements shall remain in effect until further notice. Reimbursement of Duties This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the presumption that reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent increase in antidumping duties by the amount of antidumping and/or countervailing duties reimbursed. Administrative Protective Order This notice also is the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. These amended final results of administrative review and notice are issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and (h), and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.224.

ACTION: Notice; request for comments. SUMMARY: The Assistant Regional Administrator for Sustainable Fisheries, Northeast Region, NMFS (Assistant Regional Administrator), has made a preliminary determination that an Exempted Fishing Permit (EFP) application contains all of the required information and warrants further consideration. This EFP would allow two commercial fishing vessels to temporarily retain undersize fish and fish in excess of possession limits for the purpose of data collection in support of research conducted by the Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI). The Assistant Regional Administrator has made a preliminary determination that the activities authorized under this EFP would be consistent with the goals and objectives of the Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Fishery Management Plan (FMP). However, further review and consultation may be necessary before a final determination is made to issue an EFP. Therefore, NMFS announces that the Assistant Regional Administrator proposes to recommend that an EFP be issued. Regulations under the Magnuson– Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act require publication of this notification to provide interested parties the opportunity to comment on applications for proposed EFPs. DATES: Comments must be received on or before May 13, 2009. ADDRESSES: You may submit written comments by any of the following methods: • Email: DA9–103@noaa.gov. Include in the subject line ‘‘Comments on GMRI TED EFP.’’ • Mail: Patricia A. Kurkul, Regional Administrator, NMFS, NE Regional Office, 55 Great Republic Drive, Gloucester, MA 01930. Mark the outside of the envelope ‘‘Comments on GMRI TED EFP.’’ • Fax: (978) 281–9135. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Emily Bryant, Fishery Management Specialist, 978–281–9244. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: GMRI was selected by the NOAA Protected Species Branch to conduct a study titled, ‘‘Study Comparison in Flounder Trawl Gear.’’ The objective of this project is to test and compare the catch performance of a trawl net fitted with a NMFS turtle excluder device (TED) with a leatherback sea turtle opening to an identical net without a TED or opening in the summer flounder fishery. This PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 objective would be accomplished by documenting catch rates of summer flounder and other finfish bycatch between the two trawl gear types and examining the effects of these gear types on summer flounder length frequencies. GMRI proposes to employ two commercial vessels that operate in the summer flounder fishery to conduct this research. Investigators propose to conduct approximately six 90-minute tows per day for 16 days, for a total of 96 tows, during May — June 2009. The location would be performed in the Mid–Atlantic region, specifically the summer flounder fishing grounds off Delmarva and New Jersey north of the Summer Flounder Fishery Sea Turtle Protection Area. Investigators would weigh and measure all summer flounder and finfish bycatch collected in each tow and return everything but legal– sized summer flounder within regulated possession limits to the sea as quickly as possible. All legal catch would be sold. GMRI submitted a complete EFP application on April 13, 2009, requesting exemption from minimum fish size and possession limit regulations for the purpose of data collection prior to discard. Undersize fish and fish above the vessel’s possession limit would be returned to the sea as quickly as possible to minimize discard mortality. All other elements of these fishing trips would comply with fishing regulations. The applicant may request minor modifications and extensions to the EFP throughout the year. EFP modifications and extensions may be granted without further notice if they are deemed essential to facilitate completion of the proposed research and have minimal impacts that do not change the scope or impact of the initially approved EFP request. Any fishing activity conducted outside the scope of the exempted fishing activity would be prohibited. If the research project is terminated for any reason prior to completion, any unused funds collected from catch sold to pay for research expenses may be refunded to NOAA. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: April 22, 2009. Alan D. Risenhoover Director, Office of Sustainable Fisheries, National Marine Fisheries Service. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 17, 1993, the Department published in the Federal 
Register the countervailing duty order on corrosion-resistant carbon 
steel flat products (CORE) from Korea. See Countervailing Duty Orders 
and Amendments of Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determinations: 
Certain Steel Products from Korea, 58 FR 43752 (August 17, 1993). On 
August 1, 2008, the Department published a notice of ``Opportunity to 
Request Administrative Review'' of this countervailing duty order. See 
Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended 
Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 73 FR 
44966 (August 1, 2008). In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we 
published a notice of initiation of the administrative review

[[Page 19202]]

on September 30, 2008, for the 2008 period of review (POR). See 
Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 56795 (September 30, 
2008). The preliminary results for this review are currently due no 
later than May 4, 2009.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to issue the preliminary results of an 
administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and the
    final results of review within 120 days after the date on which the 
preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete 
the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act 
allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 
days and 180 days, respectively.
    We are awaiting supplemental information from the Government of 
Korea in this administrative review. Because the Department will 
require additional time to review and analyze this supplemental 
information and may issue further supplemental questionnaires, it is 
not practicable to complete this review within the originally 
anticipated time limit (i.e., by May 4, 2009). Therefore, the 
Department is extending the time limit for completion of the 
preliminary results by 120 days to not later than August 31, 2009, in 
accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: April 22, 2009.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
