Certain Hot-Rolled Flat-Rolled Carbon-Quality Steel Products from 
Brazil: Preliminary Results of Full Sunset Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: On April 1, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated a sunset review of the countervailing duty 
(``CVD'') order on certain hot-rolled flat-rolled carbon-quality steel 
products from Brazil, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (``the Act''). On the basis of a notice of intent to 
participate and an adequate substantive response filed on behalf of the 
domestic interested parties and adequate responses from respondents and 
the Government of Brazil (``GOB''), the Department determined to 
conduct a full sunset review of this CVD order pursuant to section 
751(c) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(2). As a result of our 
analysis, the Department preliminarily finds that revocation of the CVD 
order would likely lead to continuance or recurrence of a 
countervailable subsidy.

DATES: Effective Date: July 27, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jacqueline Arrowsmith or Milton Koch, 
AD/CVD Operations, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and

5255 or (202) 482-2584, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 1, 2010 the Department initiated the second sunset review 
of the countervailing duty order on hot-rolled carbon-quality steel 
flat products from Brazil in accordance with section 751(c) of the Act. 
See Initiation of Five-Year (``Sunset'') Review, 75 FR 16437 (April 1, 
2010).
    Within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i), the 
Department received notices of intent to participate on behalf of 
United States Steel Corporation, Nucor Corporation, Gallatin Steel, 
SSAB N.A.D., Steel Dynamics, Inc., ArcelorMittal USA Inc. (collectively 
``domestic interested parties''). The domestic interested parties 
claimed interested-party status as producers of subject merchandise in 
the United States as defined by section 771(9)(C) of the Act. The 
Department received substantive responses from the domestic interested 
parties within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). The 
Department also received substantive responses in a timely manner from 
the following respondent interested parties: the GOB, Usinas 
Siderugicas de Minas Gerais and Companhia Siderugica Paulista 
(``USIMINAS/COSIPA'') and Companhia Siderugica Nacional (``CSN''). On 
May 21, 2010, after analyzing the submissions and rebuttals from 
interested parties and finding the substantive response adequate, the 
Department determined to conduct a full sunset review. See Memorandum 
from Jacqueline Arrowsmith, Trade Compliance Analyst, to Barbara

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in this review are addressed in the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum (``Decision Memorandum'') from Edward C. Yang, 
Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations, to Ronald K. Lorentzen, Deputy Assistant Secretary for 
Import Administration, dated concurrently with this notice, which is 
hereby adopted by this notice. Parties can find a complete discussion 
of all issues raised in this review and the corresponding 
recommendation in this public memorandum which is on file in the 
Central Records Unit, Room B-099 of the main Commerce building. In 
addition, a complete version of the Decision Memorandum can be accessed 
directly on the Web at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn. The paper copy and 
electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Preliminary Results of Review

    The Department preliminarily determines that revocation of the CVD 
order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of a 
countervailable subsidy. The net countervailable subsidy likely to 
prevail if the order were revoked is zero percent for USIMINAS/COSIPA, 
CSN, and all other companies. Interested parties may submit case briefs 
no later than 50 days after the date of publication of the preliminary 
results of the full sunset review, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.309(c)(1)(i). Any interested party may request a hearing within 30 
days of publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.310(c). Rebuttal briefs, which must be limited to issues raised in 
the case briefs, may be filed not later than five days after the time 
limit for filing case briefs in accordance with 19 CFR 351.309(d). A 
hearing, if requested, will be held two days after the date the 
rebuttal briefs are due. The Department will issue a notice of final 
results of this sunset review, which will include the results of its 
analysis of issues raised in any such comments, no later than 240 days 
after the date of publication of the notice of initiation (i.e., to 
November 27, 2010 in accordance with 19 CFR 351.218(f)(3)). However, 
November 27, 2010 falls on a Saturday and it is the Department's long-
standing practice to issue a determination the next business day when 
the statutory deadline falls on a weekend, Federal holiday, or any 
other day when the Department is closed. See Notice of Clarification: 
Application of ``Next Business Day'' Rule for Administrative 
Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 
70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). Accordingly, the deadline for the 
completion of the final results is now November 29, 2010, the first 
business day after the 240th day from initiation.
    We are issuing and publishing the results and notice in accordance 
with sections 751(c), 752, and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: July 20, 2010.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
