On June 15, 2009, Yucel notified the Department that it had no sales, shipments, or entries, directly or indirectly, of subject merchandise to the United States during the period of review (POR). On August 5, 2009, we published the notice of preliminary rescission of this CVD duty administrative review with respect to Yucel, and invited interested parties to comment. See Welded Carbon Steel Standard Pipe and Tube from Turkey: Intent to Rescind Countervailing Duty Administrative Review, in Part, 74 FR 39062 (August 5, 2009) (Preliminary Rescission). We received no comments, and have determined that the review of Yucel should be rescinded. This review will remain in effect for all other companies for which the review was initiated. Partial Rescission of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), the Department may rescind an administrative review, with respect to a particular exporter or producer, if the Secretary concludes that, during the period covered by the review, there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise to the United States by that producer.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background This investigation covers 22 programs. Clorindo Appo SRL (Clorindo) is the only producer/exporter of subject merchandise from Argentina under investigation. The petitioner is Korff Holdings, LLC d/b/a Quaker City Castings. Period of Investigation The period of investigation (the POI) for which we are measuring subsidies is January 1, 2008, through December 31, 2008, which corresponds to Argentina’s most recently completed fiscal year. See 19 CFR 351.204(b)(2). Case History The following events have occurred since the preliminary determination notice was published in the Federal Register on July 6, 2009. See Ni–Resist Piston Inserts From Argentina: Preliminary Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination, 74 FR 31914 (July 6, 2009) (Preliminary Determination). From July 23 through July 29, 2009, we conducted verification of the questionnaire responses submitted by the Government of Argentina (GOA), including the provincial government of Santa Fe, and Clorindo. We issued the verification reports on August 13, 2009.1 On August 25 and 27, 2009, we received a case brief from Clorindo and the GOA, respectively.2 On August 31, 2009, we received a rebuttal brief from Clorindo. On September 2, 2009, we received a case brief from the 1 The public version of the verification reports and all public documents for this investigation are on file in the Central Records Unit, room 1117 in the main building of the Commerce Department. 2 The GOA submitted a case brief on August 25, 2009; however, the case brief was rejected because it contained untimely new factual information. See Letter to Roberto Salafia, Minister, Economic and Commercial Section, Embassy of Argentina from Melissa G. Skinner, Director, Operations Office 3, regarding Rejection of Case Brief with Untimely Filed Information (August 26, 2009), which stated that the GOA could resubmit the case brief by August 28, 2009 provided the untimely information was removed. PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 petitioner.3 On September 9, 2009, we received from the GOA a rebuttal brief to the petitioner’s case brief. We did not hold a hearing in this investigation, as one was not requested. Scope of Investigation The scope of this investigation includes all Ni–resist piston inserts regardless of size, thickness, weight, or outside diameter. Ni–resist piston inserts may also be called other names including, but not limited to, ‘‘Ring Carriers,’’ or ‘‘Alfin Inserts.’’ Ni–resist piston inserts are alloyed cast iron rings, with or without a sheet metal cooling channel pressed and welded into the interior of the insert. Ni–resist piston inserts are composed of the material known as Ni–resist, of the chemical composition: 13.5% - 17.5% Ni (nickel), 5.5% - 8.0% Cu (copper), 0.8% - 2.5% Cr (chromium), 0.5% - 1.5% Mn (manganese), 1.0% - 3.0% Si (silicon), 2.4% - 3.0% C (carbon). The cast iron composition is produced primarily to the material specifications of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), ASTM A–436 grade 1. The scope of this investigation does not include piston rings nor any other product manufactured using the Ni– resist material. The subject imports are properly classified under subheading 8409.99.91.90 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), but have been imported under HTSUS 7326.90. The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes. The written description is dispositive of the scope of this investigation. Injury Test Because Argentina is a ‘‘Subsidies Agreement Country’’ within the meaning of section 701(b) of the Act, the International Trade Commission (the ITC) is required to determine whether imports of the subject merchandise from Argentina materially injure, or threaten material injury to, a U.S. industry. On March 25, 2009, the ITC published its preliminary determination finding that there is a reasonable indication that an industry in the United States is 3 The petitioner submitted a case brief on August 20, 2009; however, the case brief was rejected because it contained an untimely new subsidy allegation and untimely new factual information. See Letter to Geoffrey Korff of the Korff Law Firm from Melissa G. Skinner, Director, Operations Office 3 (August 25, 2009), which stated that petitioner could resubmit the case brief, provided the untimely information was removed. On September 1, 2009, the Department granted to the petitioner an extension of time to resubmit the case brief. See Letter to Geoffrey Korff of the Korff Law Firm from Melissa G.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On June 15, 2009, Yucel notified the Department that it had no 
sales, shipments, or entries, directly or indirectly, of subject 
merchandise to the United States during the period of review (POR). On 
August 5, 2009, we published the notice of preliminary rescission of 
this CVD duty administrative review with respect to Yucel, and invited 
interested parties to comment. See Welded Carbon Steel Standard Pipe 
and Tube from Turkey: Intent to Rescind Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Review, in Part, 74 FR 39062 (August 5, 2009) 
(Preliminary Rescission). We received no comments, and have determined 
that the review of Yucel should be rescinded. This review will remain 
in effect for all other companies for which the review was initiated.

Partial Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), the Department may rescind an 
administrative review, with respect to a particular exporter or 
producer, if the Secretary concludes that, during the period covered by 
the review, there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject 
merchandise to the United States by that producer. Yucel submitted a 
letter on June 15, 2009, certifying that it did not have sales of 
subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. The Department

[[Page 47922]]

received no comments from any other party on Yucel's no-shipment claim.
    We conducted an internal customs data query on June 16, 2009. We 
also issued a ``no shipments inquiry'' message to U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP), which posted the message on June 19, 2009.\2\ 
The customs data query indicated that Yucel had no sales, shipments, or 
entries of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. We 
did not receive any information from CBP contrary to Yucel's claim of 
no sales, shipments, or entries of subject merchandise to the United 
States during the POR. See Memorandum to the File through Melissa 
Skinner, Director, AD/CVD Operations, Office 3, titled ``Customs Data 
Query,'' (July 7, 2009).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Message number 9170203, available at https://addcvd.cbp.gov.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Based on our analysis of the shipment data, we determine that Yucel 
did not ship subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. 
Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), and consistent with 
our practice,\3\ we are rescinding the review for Yucel. We will 
continue this administrative review with respect to the Borusan Group, 
Borusan Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S., Borusan Istikbal
