The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 after publication of these final results of review. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’’ regulation on May 6, 2003 (68 FR 23954). This clarification applies to POR entries of subject merchandise produced by companies examined in this review (i.e., companies for which a dumping margin was calculated) where the companies E:\FR\FM\22MRN1.SGM 22MRN1 13492 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 54 / Monday, March 22, 2010 / Notices did not know that their merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all– others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.

Certain Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products from the 
Republic of Korea: Notice of Final Results of the Fifteenth 
Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On September 8, 2009, the Department of Commerce (the 
Department) published the preliminary results of the antidumping duty 
administrative review for certain corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat 
products (CORE) from the Republic of Korea (Korea). See Certain 
Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products from the Republic of 
Korea: Notice of Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review, 74 FR 46110 (September 8, 2009) (Preliminary 
Results). This review covers seven manufacturers and exporters 
(collectively, the respondents) of the subject merchandise: LG Chem., 
Ltd. (LG Chem), Haewon MSC Co. Ltd. (Haewon), Dongbu Steel Co., Ltd., 
(Dongbu), Hyundai HYSCO (HYSCO), Pohang Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. (POSCO) 
and Pohang Coated Steel Co., Ltd. (POCOS) (collectively, the POSCO 
Group), and Union Steel Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (Union) (collectively, 
respondents).\1\ The period of review (POR) is August 1, 2007, through 
July 31, 2008.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ As noted in the Preliminary Results, the Department selected 
HYSCO and Union as mandatory respondents in this review. See 
Memorandum from Christopher Hargett, International Trade Compliance 
Analyst, through James Terpstra, Program Manager, to Melissa 
Skinner, Director, Office 3, entitled ``2007-2008 Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review of Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat 
Products from the Republic of Korea: Selection of Respondents for 
Individual Review,'' dated December 8, 2008. On July 8, 2009, we 
reconsidered our resources and found it practicable to review the 
POSCO Group as a voluntary respondent. See Memorandum from James 
Terpstra to Melissa Skinner entitled ``2007-2008 Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review of Certain Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel 
Flat Products from the Republic of Korea: Selection of POSCO as a 
Voluntary Respondent,'' dated July 8, 2009.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As a result of our analysis of the comments received, these final 
results differ from the Preliminary Results. For our final results, we 
find that HYSCO, the POSCO Group, and Union, made sales of subject 
merchandise at less than normal value (NV). In addition, based on the 
final results for the respondents selected for individual review, we 
have determined a weighted-average margin for those companies that were 
not selected for individual review.

EFFECTIVE DATE: March 22, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On September 8, 2009, the Department published the Preliminary 
Results. In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined that 
HYSCO, the POSCO Group, and Union made sales of subject merchandise at 
less than NV during the POR. In addition, based on the preliminary 
results for the respondents selected for individual review, the 
Department calculated a weighted-average margin for those companies 
that were not selected for individual review. On November 16, 2009, the 
Department extended the time limits for the final results of this 
review until no later than March 8, 2010. See Corrosion-Resistant 
Carbon Steel Flat Products from the Republic of Korea: Notice of

------------------------------------------------------------------------
\2\ This rate is a simple average percentage margin (based on the two
  reviewed companies with an affirmative deposit rate) for the period
  August 1, 2007, through July 31, 2008, and normally does not include
  zero and de minimis rates or any rates based solely on the facts
  available.

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). The Department calculated 
importer-specific duty assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of 
the total antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the 
total entered value of the examined sales for that importer. Where the 
assessment rate is above de minimis, we will instruct CBP to assess 
duties on all entries of subject merchandise by that importer. The 
Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions 
directly to CBP 15 days after publication of these final results of 
review.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment''' regulation 
on May 6, 2003 (68 FR 23954). This clarification applies to POR entries 
of subject merchandise produced by companies examined in this review 
(i.e., companies for which a dumping margin was calculated) where the 
companies

[[Page 13492]]

did not know that their merchandise was destined for the United States. 
In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries 
at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this 
clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of CORE from Korea entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the publication date of these final results, as 
provided by section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act): (1) for companies covered by this review, the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate listed above; (2) for previously reviewed or 
investigated companies other than those covered by this review, the 
cash deposit rate will 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 less-than-fair-value investigation, but 
the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for 
the most recent period for the manufacturer of the subject merchandise; 
and (4) if neither the exporter nor the producer is a firm covered in 
this review, a prior review, or the investigation, the cash deposit 
rate will be 17.70 percent, the all-others rate established in the 
less-than-fair-value investigation. These deposit requirements shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also 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 and/or countervailing duties prior to 
liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure 
to comply with this requirement could result in the presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred and 
the subsequent increase in antidumping duties by the amount of 
antidumping and/or countervailing duties reimbursed.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also is the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) 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 the terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these results and notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: March 15, 2010.
Kim Glas,
Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
