Download as PDF 64054 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 233 / Monday, December 7, 2009 / Notices practicable, the reliability and relevance of the information used. As fully explained in the Facts Available Memorandum, the Department finds the rate of 48.33 percent to be reliable and relevant for use as AFA. As such, the Department finds this rate to be corroborated to the extent practicable consistent with section 776(c) of Act. We have, therefore, selected the rate of 48.33 percent to apply as an AFA rate to Mueller and Ternium and consider it to be sufficiently high so as to encourage participation in future segments of this proceeding. See Facts Available Memorandum. Preliminary Results of Review As a result of our review, we preliminarily determine the following weighted–average dumping margins exist for the period November 1, 2007, through October 31, 2008: We intend to issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of our analysis of issues in any such case briefs, rebuttal briefs, and written comments or at a hearing, within 120 days of publication of these preliminary results in the Federal Register. Assessment The Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Because we are relying on total AFA to establish Mueller’s and Ternium’s dumping margin, we will instruct CBP to apply a dumping margin of 48.33 percent ad valorem to all entries of subject merchandise during the POR that was produced and/or exported by Mueller and Ternium. The Department intends to issue instructions to CBP 41 days after the publication of the final results of review.
