Selection Process The HMS Management Division will review all submitted applications that are deemed complete and develop a list of qualified applicants. A qualified applicant is an applicant that has submitted a complete application and has met the selection criteria. Qualified applicants are eligible to be selected to participate in the shark research fishery for 2010. The HMS Management Division will provide the list of qualified applicants to the SEFSC. The SEFSC will then evaluate the list of qualified applicants and, based on the temporal and spatial needs of the research objectives, the availability of qualified applicants, and the available quota for a given year, will randomly select approximately 10 qualified applicants to conduct the prescribed research. Where there are multiple qualified applicants that meet the criteria, permittees will be randomly selected through a lottery system. If a public meeting is deemed necessary, NMFS will announce details of a public selection meeting in a subsequent Federal Register notice. Once the selection process is complete, NMFS will notify the selected applicants and issue the shark research fishery permits. If needed, NMFS will communicate with the shark research fishery permit holders to arrange a captain’s meeting to discuss the research objectives and protocols. The shark research fishery permit holders must contact the NMFS observer coordinator to arrange the placement of a NMFS-approved observer for each shark research trip. A shark research fishery permit will only be valid for the vessel and owner(s) and terms and conditions listed on the permit, and thus, cannot be transferred to another vessel or owner(s). Issuance of a shark research permit does not guarantee that the permit holder will be assigned a NMFS-approved observer on any particular trip. Rather, issuance indicates that a vessel may be issued a NMFS-approved observer for a particular trip, and on such trips, may be allowed to harvest Atlantic sharks, including sandbar sharks, in excess of the retention limits described in 50 CFR 635.24(a). These retention limits will be based on available quota, number of vessels participating in the 2010 shark research fishery, the research objectives set forth by the shark board, and may vary by vessel and/or location. When not operating under the auspices of the shark research fishery, the vessel would VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:30 Oct 29, 2009 Jkt 220001 still be able to land non-sandbar, SCS, and pelagic sharks subject to existing retention limits on trips without a NMFS-approved observer. The shark research permit may be revoked or modified at any time and does not confer the right to engage in activities beyond those listed on the shark research fishery permit. Commercial shark permit holders (directed and incidental) are invited to submit an application to participate in the shark research fishery on an annual basis. Permit applications can be found on the HMS Management Division’s website at: http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/ sfa/hms/index.htm or by calling (301) 713–2347. Final decisions on the issuance of a shark research fishery permit will depend on the submission of all required information, and NMFS’ review of applicant information as outlined above. The 2010 shark research fishery will start after the opening of the shark fishery and under available quotas as published in a separate Federal Register final rule. 56179 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Holly Phelps or Elizabeth Eastwood, AD/CVD Operations, Office 2, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street & Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–0656 and (202) 482–3874, respectively.

(120-day) sunset reviews for these orders pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2). As a result of these sunset reviews, the 
Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty orders would 
be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping.

DATES: Effective Date: October 30, 2009.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Holly Phelps or Elizabeth Eastwood,

482-3874, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 1, 2009, the Department published the notice of initiation 
of the sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on SSWR from 
Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, and Taiwan pursuant to section 751(c) of 
the Act. See Initiation of Five-Year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 74 FR 31412 
(July 1, 2009) (Notice of Initiation).
    The Department received a notice of intent to participate from 
Carpenter Technology Corporation, a domestic interested party, within 
the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). The company claimed 
interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as a 
manufacturer of a domestic like product in the United States.
    The Department received a complete substantive response to the 
notice of initiation from the domestic interested party within the 30-
day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). We received no 
substantive responses from respondent interested parties with respect 
to any of the orders covered by these sunset reviews, nor was a hearing 
requested. As a result, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the 
Department conducted expedited (120-day) sunset reviews of the 
antidumping duty orders on SSWR from Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, and 
Taiwan.

Scope of the Orders

    The merchandise covered by these orders is SSWR, which comprises 
products that are hot-rolled or hot-rolled annealed and/or pickled and/
or descaled rounds, squares, octagons, hexagons or other shapes, in 
coils, that may also be coated with a lubricant containing copper, 
lime, or oxalate. SSWR is made of alloy steels containing, by weight, 
1.2 percent or less of carbon and 10.5 percent or more of chromium, 
with or without other elements. These products are manufactured only by 
hot-rolling or hot-rolling, annealing, and/or pickling and/or 
descaling, are normally sold in coiled form, and are of solid cross-
section. The majority of SSWR sold in the United States is round in 
cross-sectional shape, annealed and pickled, and later cold-finished 
into stainless steel wire or small-diameter bar.

[[Page 56180]]

    The most common size for such products is 5.5 millimeters or 0.217 
inches in diameter, which represents the smallest size that normally is 
produced on a rolling mill and is the size that most wire-drawing 
machines are set up to draw. The range of SSWR sizes normally sold in 
the United States is between 0.20 inches and 1.312 inches diameter. Two 
stainless steel grades, SF20T and K-M35FL, are excluded from the scope 
of the order. The chemical makeup for the excluded grades is as 
follows:

SF20T:
Carbon...............................  0.05 max
Chromium.............................  19.00/21.00
Manganese............................  2.00 max
Molybdenum...........................  1.50/2.50
Phosphorous..........................  0.05 max
Lead.................................  added (0.10/0.30)
Sulfur...............................  0.15 max
Tellurium............................  added (0.03 min)
Silicon..............................  1.00 max.
 
K-M35FL:
Carbon...............................  0.015 max
Nickel...............................  0.30 max
Silicon..............................  0.70/1.00
Chromium.............................  12.50/14.00
Manganese............................  0.40 max
Lead.................................  0.10/0.30
Phosphorous..........................  0.04 max
Aluminum.............................  0.20/0.35
Sulfur...............................  0.03 max.
 

    The products subject to these orders are currently classifiable 
under subheadings 7221.00.0005, 7221.00.0015, 7221.00.0030, 
7221.00.0045, and 7221.00.0075 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for 
convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope 
of these orders is dispositive.

Final Results of Reviews

    We determine that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on SSWR 
from Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, and Taiwan would be likely to lead to 
continuation or recurrence of dumping at the following weighted-average 
percentage margins:
