SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On March 9, 2009, the Department published in the Federal Register 
the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping 
duty order on hot-rolled steel from Japan. See Preliminary Results. No 
interested parties filed comments in response to the Department's 
invitation to comment in the preliminary results.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by this order consists of certain hot-
rolled flat-rolled carbon-quality steel products of a rectangular 
shape, of a width of 0.5 inch or greater, neither clad, plated, nor 
coated with metal and whether or not painted, varnished, or coated with 
plastics or other non-metallic substances, in coils (whether or not in 
successively superimposed layers) regardless of thickness, and in 
straight lengths, of a thickness less than 4.75 mm and of a width 
measuring at least 10 times the thickness. Universal mill plate (i.e., 
flat-rolled products rolled on four faces or in a closed box pass, of a 
width exceeding 150 mm but not exceeding 1250 mm and of a thickness of 
not less than 4 mm, not in coils and without patterns in relief) of a

order. Specifically included in this scope are vacuum degassed, fully 
stabilized (commonly referred to as interstitial-free (IF)) steels, 
high strength low alloy (HSLA) steels, and the substrate for motor 
lamination steels. IF steels are recognized as low carbon steels with 
micro-alloying levels of elements such as titanium and/or niobium added 
to stabilize carbon and nitrogen elements. HSLA steels are recognized 
as steels with micro-alloying levels of elements such as chromium, 
copper, niobium, titanium, vanadium, and molybdenum. The substrate for 
motor lamination steels contains micro-alloying levels of elements such 
as silicon and aluminum. Steel products to be included in the scope of 
this investigation, regardless of Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (HTSUS) definitions, are products in which: (1) Iron 
predominates, by weight, over each of the other contained elements; (2) 
the carbon content is 2 percent or less, by weight; and (3) none of the 
elements listed below exceeds the quantity, by weight, respectively

Final Results of Review

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department applied adverse facts 
available to JFE, Nippon, and Kobe. See Preliminary Results, 74 FR 
10019. Neither petitioners nor respondents filed any comments on the 
Department's Preliminary Results. There is no new information on the 
record or evidence of a change in circumstances to warrant any changes 
to the antidumping margins determined in this Preliminary Results. As 
such, we have made no changes to the dumping margins applied to JFE, 
Nippon, and Kobe.
    The following dumping margins exist for the period June 1, 2007 
through May 31, 2008:

Duty 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). We will direct CBP to assess 
the dumping rates listed above against all subject merchandise 
manufactured or exported by JFE, Nippon, and Kobe, that was entered or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption during the POR. The 
Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions 
directly to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final 
results of review.

Cash Deposit Requirement

    The following cash deposit rates will be effective with respect to 
all shipments of hot-rolled steel from Japan entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of these 
final results, as provided for by section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) For 
JFE, Nippon, and Kobe, the cash deposit rate shall be 40.26 percent; 
(2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, 
the cash deposit rate will continue to be the 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 LTFV investigation, 
but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the 
rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the 
subject merchandise; and (4) if neither the exporter nor the 
manufacturer is a firm covered by this review, a prior review, or the 
LTFV investigation, the cash deposit rate shall be the all others rate 
established in the section 129 redetermination of the LTFV 
investigation, which is 22.92 percent. See Notice of Determination 
Under Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act: Antidumping 
Measures on Certain Hot-Rolled Flat-Rolled Carbon-Quality Steel 
Products From

[[Page 27777]]

Japan, 67 FR 71936 (December 3, 2002). These deposit rates, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice 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 duties prior to liquidation of the 
relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APOs) 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 terms of an APO is a violation that is subject 
to sanction.
    These final results of administrative review and this notice are 
issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: June 2, 2009.
