Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 81 / Wednesday, April 29, 2009 / Notices pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES requested revocation of the Hot–Rolled Steel Order with respect to its sales of subject merchandise. See Certain Hot– Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products From Thailand; Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Intent to Revoke and Rescind in Part, 70 FR 73197 (December 9, 2005). In its revocation request, SSI agreed to immediate reinstatement in the Hot– Rolled Steel Order, so long as any producer or reseller is subject to the order, should the Department determine that SSI ‘‘sold the subject merchandise at less than normal value.’’ See SSI’s November 30, 2004, letter to the Department requesting revocation. On May 17, 2006, the Department revoked the antidumping duty order with respect to SSI after having determined that SSI sold the merchandise at not less than normal value for a period of at least three consecutive years.1 See Revocation. As the result of an adequate allegation from a domestic interested party in this proceeding (i.e., United States Steel Corporation), the Department, pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), is now conducting a changed circumstances review to determine whether SSI has resumed dumping hot–rolled steel and whether the antidumping order should be reinstated for hot–rolled steel from Thailand manufactured and exported by SSI. See Initiation of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Hot–Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from Thailand, 73 FR 18766 (April 7, 2008). ‘‘On October 29, 2008, based upon the complexity of the issues presented in this review, we extended the time limit for completion of this changed circumstances review until April 22, 2009.
