On March 24, 2009, the Department published a notice of initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review of low enriched uranium from France for the period February 1, 2008 through January 31, 2009 (the seventh period of review). See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 12310 (March 24, 2009). In that notice, the Department also initiated administrative reviews covering the periods February 1, 2005 through January 31, 2006 (the fourth period of review), and February 1, 2007 through January 31, 2008 (the sixth period of review).1 For the reasons discussed below, we are rescinding the administrative reviews. Rescission of Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties that requested a review withdraw the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. On May 15, 2009, USEC withdrew its request for the seventh administrative review. At the same time, USEC and Eurodif withdrew their requests for administrative review for the fourth and sixth administrative reviews. USEC and Eurodif withdrew their requests before the 90-day deadline, and no other party requested administrative reviews of the antidumping duty order on low enriched uranium from France for the periods discussed. Therefore, in response to the withdrawals, by USEC and Eurodif, of all requests for the three administrative reviews, and pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department rescinds the three administrative reviews of the antidumping duty order on low enriched uranium from France. erowe on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES Assessment Notification to Importers This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period.

SUMMARY: On May 22, 2009, the United States Court of International Trade (CIT) sustained the Department of Commerce’s (the Department’s) results of redetermination pursuant to the CIT’s remand in Nucor Corporation, Gerdau Ameristeel Corporation, and Commercial Metals Company v. United States, Court No. 07–00457 (Apr. 14, 2009) (Nucor I).

United States, 893 F.2d 337 (Fed. Cir. 1990) (Timken), the Department is notifying the public that the final judgment in this case is not in harmony with the Department’s final results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain steel concrete reinforcing bars (rebar) from Turkey covering the period of review (POR) of April 1, 2005, through March 31, 2006. See Certain Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars From Turkey; Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and New VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:17 Jun 04, 2009 Jkt 217001 On November 6, 2007, the Department published its final results in the antidumping duty administrative review of rebar from Turkey covering the POR of April 1, 2005, through March 31, 2006. See Final Results. In the Final Results, the Department imputed an amount for depreciation related to an account listed as ‘‘melt shop modernization’’ in the books and records of one respondent, Ekinciler Demir ve Celik Sanayi A.S. and Ekinciler Dis Ticaret A.S. (collectively, ‘‘Ekinciler’’), as had been done in prior segments of the proceeding. In Nucor I, the CIT determined that the Department’s Final Results were not supported by substantial evidence on the record, and it remanded the issue of the imputed depreciation calculated for Ekinciler to the Department. Specifically, the CIT directed the Department to redetermine ‘‘imputed depreciation for Ekinciler without the amount that currently reflects the foreign exchange losses in the melt shop modernization account.’’ On April 14, 2009, the Department issued its final results of redetermination pursuant to Nucor I. The remand redetermination explained that, in accordance with the CIT’s instructions, the Department recalculated the cost of production for Ekinciler excluding the depreciation on the foreign exchange losses recorded in Ekinciler’s melt shop modernization account. The Department’s redetermination resulted in changes to the Final Results weighted–average margin for Ekinciler from 1.66 percent to 0.11 percent. Timken Notice In its decision in Timken, 893 F.2d at 341, the CAFC held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department must publish a notice of a court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Department determination and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ‘‘conclusive’’ court decision. PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The CIT’s decision in Nucor v. II on May 22, 2009, constitutes a final decision of that court that is not in harmony with the Department’s Final Results. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken. Accordingly, the Department will continue the suspension of liquidation of the subject merchandise pending the expiration of the period of appeal or, if appealed, pending a final and conclusive court decision. In the event the CIT’s ruling is not appealed or, if appealed, upheld by the CAFC, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess antidumping duties on entries of the subject merchandise during the POR from Ekinciler based on the revised assessment rates calculated by the Department.
