SUMMARY: On March 24, 2009, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register a notice announcing the initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain cut-to-length carbon-quality steel plate (CTL CQ plate) from Japan. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 12310 (Initiation Notice). The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2008 to January 31, 2009, and covers sales or entries of CTL CQ plate by Kawasaki Steel Corporation (Kawasaki) and its alleged successor-in-interest, JFE Steel Corporation (JFE). We are rescinding this review because there were no entries of CTL CQ plate associated with either Kawasaki or JFE Steel during the POR. EFFECTIVE DATE: May 19, 2009.

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On March 24, 2009, the Department of Commerce (the Department)

Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 12310 (Initiation 
Notice). The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2008 to January 31, 
2009, and covers sales or entries of CTL CQ plate by Kawasaki Steel 
Corporation (Kawasaki) and its alleged successor-in-interest, JFE Steel

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 4, 2009, the Department published in the Federal 
Register a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of 
the antidumping duty order on CTL CQ plate from Japan for the period 
February 1, 2008 to January 31, 2009. See Antidumping or Countervailing 
Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request 
Administrative Review, 74 FR 6013 (February 4, 2009). In accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(1), on February 27, Nucor Corporation, a 
domestic producer of CTL CQ plate, requested a review of this order 
with respect to Kawasaki Steel Corporation (Kawasaki). On March 9, 
2009, Nucor filed a letter clarifying its February 27, 2009, request 
for an administrative review of Kawasaki to include any successors-in-
interest to Kawasaki, such as JFE.
    The Department initiated the administrative review on March 24, 
2009. See Initiation Notice. On April 7, 2009, JFE notified the 
Department that it had not made sales or exports of the subject 
merchandise during the POR. In addition, we reviewed the U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection (CBP) import database and found no entries of 
subject merchandise associated with either JFE or Kawasaki. We invited 
interested parties to comment on this information. See ``No Shipments 
for Review and Intent to Rescind,'' memorandum to the file dated April 
16, 2009. We received no comments.

Rescission of Review

    Under 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), the Secretary may rescind an 
administrative review in whole or only with respect to a particular 
exporter or producer if the Secretary concludes that there were no 
entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise during the POR. 
As only Kawasaki and its alleged successor-in-interest JFE are subject 
to this administrative review, and there were no entries, exports, or 
sales of the subject merchandise by either Kawasaki or JFE during the 
POR, we are rescinding this review of the antidumping duty order on CTL 
CQ plate from Japan in its entirety pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). 
We intend to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the 
date of publication of this notice of rescission of administrative 
review.
    This notice is published in accordance with section 751 of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).

    Dated: May 12, 2009.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
