Preliminary Rescission of Review The Department has analyzed all of the information on the record regarding alleged U.S. entries of subject merchandise during the POR by Baosteel. As noted above, the Department placed information on the record from CBP that indicated that subject merchandise produced by Baosteel may have entered the United States during the POR. Because the information found in the CBP documentation is proprietary, for further discussion of this issue please see the Memorandum to the File, through Scot T. Fullerton, Program Manager, from Steven Hampton, International Trade Analyst, ‘‘Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from the People’s Republic of China: Analysis of CBP Entry Documentation,’’ (‘‘Analysis of CBP Entry Documentation’’) dated concurrently with this notice. Based on its analysis of the record information, the Department preliminarily finds that the merchandise from the entry documentation is not subject to the scope of the antidumping duty order on hot-rolled carbon steel flat products from the PRC.4 Because there is no information on the record which indicates that Baosteel made sales, shipments, or entries to the United States of subject merchandise during the POR, and because Baosteel is the only company subject to this administrative review, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3) and consistent with our practice, we are preliminarily rescinding this review of the antidumping duty order on hotrolled from the PRC for the period of November 1, 2009, through October 31, 2010.5 If the Department adopts these preliminary results for its final results, the cash deposit rate for Baosteel will 4 See Analysis of CBP Entry Documentation. 5 See Final Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from the People’s Republic of China, 72 FR 41710 (July 31, 2007).
