Abstract Dated: February 19, 2010. Gwellnar Banks, Management Analyst, Office of the Chief Information Officer. The International Trade Administration’s Office of Energy and Environmental Industries (OEEI) is the principal resource and key contact point within the U.S. Department of Commerce for American energy and environmental technology companies. The goal of OEEI is to facilitate and increase exports of energy and environmental technologies, goods and services by providing support and guidance to U.S. exporters. One aspect of increasing exports is to reduce trade barriers and non-tariff measures. OEEI works closely with the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative on trade negotiations and trade liberalization initiatives. The information collected by this survey will be used to support these projects and enable OEEI to maintain a current, up-to-date list of non-tariff measures that create trade barriers for U.S. exports of environmental goods and services.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On August 10, 2009, the Department published its Preliminary Results in the antidumping duty administrative review of certain cut–to-length carbon steel plate (‘‘CTL plate’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). On August 8, 2009, Valin Xiangtan and domestic interested party, Nucor Corporation (‘‘Nucor’’) submitted surrogate value information. On August 17, 2009 Valin Xiangtan submitted rebuttal comments for the surrogate value information submitted by Nucor. We received additional factual information regarding the implementation of export licenses on August 20, 2009, from Nucor and Valin Xiangtan. On September 2, 2009, we received the second supplemental Section D questionnaire response from Valin Xiangtan. On September 9, 2009, Nucor submitted a request for a formal hearing regarding issues raised in its case and rebuttal brief, and submitted a letter withdrawing the request for a hearing on October 16, 2009. Valin Xiangtan submitted its case brief and rebuttal brief on October 1, and October 13, 2009, respectively. Nucor submitted its case brief and rebuttal brief on October 1, and October 9, 2009, respectively. On October 9, 2009, Valin Xiangtan submitted comments regarding alleged new factual information in Nucor’s case brief. On October 15, 2009, Nucor replied to the October 9, 2009, comments from Valin Xiangtan. On November 4, 2009, the Department drafted a Memo to the File stating that allegations of new factual information were unfounded. On November 20, 2009, the Department extended the deadline for the final results of review.

For the final results, the Department has made the following changes: • We have revised the surrogate value for certain gas by–products. See Issues and Decisions Memorandum at Comment 5; see also Memorandum regarding, Factors Valuations for the Final Results of the 2007–2008 Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Certain Cut–to-Length Carbon Steel Plate From the People’s Republic of China, dated concurrently with this notice (‘‘Final SV Memo’’). • We have revised the surrogate value for dolomite in our margin calculation.

Accordingly, this language is removed from the scope for these final results. PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Decisions Memorandum at Comment 12; see also Final Analysis Memorandum. Final Results Margin We determine the weighted–average dumping margin for Valin Xiangtan for the period November 1, 2007, through October 31, 2008, to be 0.00 percent. Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. For assessment purposes, we calculated importer (or customer)-specific assessment rates for merchandise subject to this review. Where appropriate, we calculated an ad valorem rate for each importer (or customer) by dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by the total entered values associated with those transactions. For duty– assessment rates calculated on this basis, we will direct CBP to assess the resulting ad valorem rate against the entered customs values for the subject merchandise. Where appropriate, we calculated a per–unit rate for each importer (or customer) by dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by the total sales quantity associated with those transactions. For duty–assessment rates calculated on this basis, we will direct CBP to assess the resulting per–unit rate against the entered quantity of the subject merchandise. Where an importer (or customer)-specific assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent), the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate that importer (or customer’s) entries of subject merchandise without regard to antidumping duties, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries containing subject merchandise exported by the PRC–wide entity at the estimated antidumping duty rate in effect at the time of entry. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication E:\FR\FM\24FEN1.SGM 24FEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 36 / Wednesday, February 24, 2010 / Notices date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: 1) for Valin Xiangtan, the cash deposit rate will be 0.00 percent, as listed above; 2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non–PRC exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter–specific rate published for the most recent period; 3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC–wide rate of 128.59 percent; and 4) for all non–PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter that supplied that non– PRC exporter. The deposit requirements shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a final 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. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. 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 the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. 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 which is subject to sanction. pwalker on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES Disclosure We will disclose the calculations performed within five days of the date of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 8303 On September 8, 2008, notice was published in the Federal Register (73 FR 52027) that a request for a permit to conduct research on Pacific harbor seals (Phoca vitulina), California sea lions (Zalophus californianus), and northern elephant seals (Mirounga angustirostris) within coastal waters and on pinniped rookeries and haul outs of Washington and Oregon had been submitted by the above-named applicant. On September 18, 2009, a notice was published in the Federal Register (74 FR 47918) announcing that the applicant had revised their request for a permit to include Eastern Distinct Population Segment Steller sea lions (Eumetopias jubatus) and Southern Resident killer whales (Orcinus orca). The requested permit has been issued under the authority of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.), the regulations governing the taking and importing of marine mammals (50 CFR part 216), the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), and the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR parts 222–226). The permit is valid through January 31, 2015, for harassment of marine mammals during aerial, vessel, and ground surveys; capture of pinnipeds for collection of tissue samples, attachment of scientific instruments and application of marks (flipper tags, brands, etc.); and harassment of marine mammals during underwater playback experiments. The permit also allows for a limited number of research-related mortality of marine mammals. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an environmental assessment (EA) was prepared analyzing the effects of the permitted activities on the human environment. Based on the analyses in the EA, NMFS determined that issuance of the permit would not significantly impact the quality of the human environment and that preparation of an environmental impact statement was not required. That determination is documented in a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), signed on February 16, 2010. Issuance of this permit, as required by the ESA, was based on a finding that such permit: (1) was applied for in good faith; (2) will not operate to the disadvantage of such endangered species; and (3) is consistent with the purposes and policies set forth in section 2 of the ESA.

Final Results Margin

    We determine the weighted-average dumping margin for Valin Xiangtan 
for the period November 1, 2007, through October 31, 2008, to be 0.00 
percent.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this 
review. For assessment purposes, we calculated importer (or customer)-
specific assessment rates for merchandise subject to this review. Where 
appropriate, we calculated an ad valorem rate for each importer (or 
customer) by dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to 
that party by the total entered values associated with those 
transactions. For duty-assessment rates calculated on this basis, we 
will direct CBP to assess the resulting ad valorem rate against the 
entered customs values for the subject merchandise. Where appropriate, 
we calculated a per-unit rate for each importer (or customer) by 
dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by 
the total sales quantity associated with those transactions. For duty-
assessment rates calculated on this basis, we will direct CBP to assess 
the resulting per-unit rate against the entered quantity of the subject 
merchandise. Where an importer (or customer)-specific assessment rate 
is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent), the Department will 
instruct CBP to liquidate that importer (or customer's) entries of 
subject merchandise without regard to antidumping duties, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate 
entries containing subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity 
at the estimated antidumping duty rate in effect at the time of entry. 
The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of these final results of review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication

[[Page 8303]]

date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: 1) for Valin 
Xiangtan, the cash deposit rate will be 0.00 percent, as listed above; 
2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters 
not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; 3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not 
been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate 
will be the PRC-wide rate of 128.59 percent; and 4) for all non-PRC 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC 
exporter that supplied that non-PRC exporter. The deposit requirements 
shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a final 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. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding APOs

    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 the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. 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 which is subject to sanction.

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations performed within five days of the 
date of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).
    We are issuing and publishing the final results and notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: February 16, 2010.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
