The public record for these reviews may be viewed on the Commission’s electronic docket (EDIS) at http://edis.usitc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background. On August 17, 1993, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Commerce’’) issued a countervailing duty order on imports of corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products from Korea (58 FR 43752). On August 19, 1993, Commerce issued antidumping duty orders on imports of corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products from Germany and Korea (58 FR 44159 and 44170). Following first five-year reviews by Commerce and the Commission, effective December 15, 2000, Commerce issued a continuation of the countervailing duty order on corrosionresistant carbon steel flat products from Korea and the antidumping duty orders on corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products from Germany and Korea (65 FR 78469). Following second five-year reviews by Commerce and the Commission, effective February 14, 2007, Commerce issued a continuation of the countervailing duty order on corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products from Korea and the antidumping duty orders on corrosionresistant carbon steel flat products from Germany and Korea (72 FR 7009). The Commission is now conducting third reviews to determine whether revocation of the orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to the domestic industry within a reasonably foreseeable time. It will assess the adequacy of interested party responses to this notice of institution to determine whether to conduct full or expedited reviews. The Commission’s determinations in any expedited reviews will be based on the facts available, which may include information provided in response to this notice. PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 301 Definitions. The following definitions apply to these reviews: (1) Subject Merchandise is the class or kind of merchandise that is within the scope of the five-year reviews, as defined by the Department of Commerce. (2) The Subject Countries in these reviews are Germany and Korea. (3) The Domestic Like Product is the domestically produced product or products which are like, or in the absence of like, most similar in characteristics and uses with, the Subject Merchandise. Consistent with its original determinations, the Commission found in its full first and second five-year review determinations a Domestic Like Product consisting of corrosion-resistant steel (excluding clad plate). Microalloy products were not included in the Domestic Like Product in the original and full first and second five-year review determinations. (4) The Domestic Industry is the U.S. producers as a whole of the Domestic Like Product, or those producers whose collective output of the Domestic Like Product constitutes a major proportion of the total domestic production of the product. In its original investigations and its full first and second five-year review determinations, the Commission defined the Domestic Industry as the domestic producers of the Domestic Like Product of all corrosion-resistant steel (excluding clad plate). (5) An Importer is any person or firm engaged, either directly or through a parent company or subsidiary, in importing the Subject Merchandise into the United States from a foreign manufacturer or through its selling agent. Participation in the reviews and public service list.—Persons, including industrial users of the Subject Merchandise and, if the merchandise is sold at the retail level, representative consumer organizations, wishing to participate in the reviews as parties must file an entry of appearance with the Secretary to the Commission, as provided in section 201.11(b)(4) of the Commission’s rules, no later than 21 days after publication of this notice in the Federal Register. The Secretary will maintain a public service list containing the names and addresses of all persons, or their representatives, who are parties to the reviews. Former Commission employees who are seeking to appear in Commission five-year reviews are advised that they may appear in a review even if they participated personally and substantially in the corresponding underlying original investigation.
