The ASF is an option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of general-purpose zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new ‘‘usage-driven’’ FTZ sites for operators/users located within a grantee’s ‘‘service area’’ in the context of the Board’s standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a general-purpose zone project. The application was submitted pursuant to the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a– 81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on April 4, 2012. FTZ 18 was approved by the Board on November 27, 1974 (Board Order 103, 39 FR 42031, 12/04/1974), reorganized on October 13, 1983 (Board Order 228, 48 FR 48486, 10/19/1983, and relocated on April 3, 1985 (Board Order 293, 50 FR 15206, 04/17/1985). VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:26 Apr 09, 2012 Jkt 226001 The current zone project includes the following site: Site 1 (7.5 acres)—2055 South Street South, Suite A, San Jose. The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be the City of San Jose, California, as described in the application. If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout the service area based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The proposed service area is within the San Jose U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing zone project to include its existing site as a ‘‘magnet’’ site. No usage-driven sites are being requested at this time. Because the ASF only pertains to establishing or reorganizing a general-purpose zone, the application would have no impact on FTZ 18’s authorized subzones. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Christopher Kemp of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and information presented in the application and case record and to report findings and recommendations to the Board. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is June 11, 2012. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to June 25, 2012. A copy of the application will be available for public inspection at the Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Room 2111, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230–0002, and in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the Board’s Web site, which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ ftz.

Analysis of the Comments Received The issue raised in DSM’s case brief is addressed in the ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum’’ (Decision Memo) from Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary Gary Taverman to Assistant Secretary Paul Piquado dated concurrently with this notice, which is hereby adopted by this notice. The sole issue which DSM has raised and to which we have responded is related to zeroing. The Decision Memo is a public document and is on file electronically via Import Administration’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). Access to IA ACCESS is available in the Central Records Unit, room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memo can be accessed directly on the Import Administration Web site at http:// ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/index.html. The signed Decision Memo and the electronic versions of the Decision Memo are identical in content. Final Results of the Review As a result of this review, we determine that the weighted-average dumping margin for DSM is 1.64 percent for the period February 1, 2010, through January 31, 2011. The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we calculated an importer-specific assessment rate for the final results of review. We divided the total dumping margins for the reviewed sales by the total entered value of those reviewed sales for the importer. We will instruct CBP to assess the importer-specific rate uniformly, as appropriate, on all entries of subject merchandise made by the relevant importer during the period of review. See 19 CFR 351.212(b). The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) (Assessment of Antidumping Duties). This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the period of review produced by DSM for which DSM did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries of the DSM-produced merchandise at the allothers rate if there is no rate for the E:\FR\FM\10APN1.SGM 10APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 69 / Tuesday, April 10, 2012 / Notices intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. See Assessment of Antidumping Duties for a full discussion of this clarification. The Department will issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication of the final results of review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for all shipments of CTL plate from Korea entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act): (1) The cash deposit rate for DSM will be the 1.64 percent; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the less-thanfair-value investigation but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; (4) if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer has its own rate, the cash deposit rate will be 0.98 percent,2 the all-others rate established in the less-than-fair-value investigation, adjusted for the exportsubsidy rate in the companion countervailing duty investigation. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Notification to Importer This notice 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 duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

have been ``worked after rolling'')--for example, products which have 
been beveled or rounded at the edges. Steel products that meet the 
noted physical characteristics that are painted, varnished, or coated 
with plastic or other non-metallic substances are included within the 
scope. Also, specifically included in the scope of the order are high 
strength, low alloy (HSLA) steels. HSLA steels are recognized as steels 
with micro-alloying levels of elements such as chromium, copper, 
niobium, titanium, vanadium, and molybdenum. Steel products included in 
the scope, regardless of Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United 
States (HTSUS) definitions, are products in which: (1) Iron 
predominates, by weight, over each of the other contained elements, (2) 
the carbon content is two percent or less, by weight, and (3) none of 
the elements listed below is equal to or exceeds the quantity, by 
weight, respectively indicated: 1.80 percent of manganese, or 1.50 
percent of silicon, or 1.00 percent of copper, or 0.50 percent of

tungsten, or 0.10 percent of molybdenum, or 0.10 percent of niobium, or 
0.41 percent of titanium, or 0.15 percent of vanadium, or 0.15 percent 
zirconium. All products that meet the written physical description, and 
in which the chemistry quantities do not equal or exceed any one of the 
levels listed above, are within the scope of the order unless otherwise 
specifically excluded. The following products are specifically excluded 
from the order: (1) Products clad, plated, or coated with metal, 
whether or not painted, varnished or coated with plastic or other non-
metallic substances; (2) SAE grades (formerly AISI grades) of series 
2300 and above; (3) products made to ASTM A710 and A736 or their 
proprietary equivalents; (4) abrasion-resistant steels (i.e., USS AR 
400, USS AR 500); (5) products made to ASTM A202, A225, A514 grade S, 
A517 grade S, or their proprietary equivalents; (6) ball bearing 
steels; (7) tool steels; and (8) silicon manganese steel or silicon

    The issue raised in DSM's case brief is addressed in the ``Issues 
and Decision Memorandum'' (Decision Memo) from Acting Deputy Assistant 
Secretary Gary Taverman to Assistant Secretary Paul Piquado dated 
concurrently with this notice, which is hereby adopted by this notice. 
The sole issue which DSM has raised and to which we have responded is 
related to zeroing. The Decision Memo is a public document and is on 
file electronically via Import Administration's Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). 
Access to IA ACCESS is available in the Central Records Unit, room 7046 
of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete 
version of the Decision Memo can be accessed directly on the Import 
Administration Web site at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/index.html. The 
signed Decision Memo and the electronic versions of the Decision Memo 
are identical in content.

Final Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we determine that the weighted-average 
dumping margin for DSM is 1.64 percent for the period February 1, 2010, 
through January 31, 2011.
    The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we calculated an 
importer-specific assessment rate for the final results of review. We 
divided the total dumping margins for the reviewed sales by the total 
entered value of those reviewed sales for the importer. We will 
instruct CBP to assess the importer-specific rate uniformly, as 
appropriate, on all entries of subject merchandise made by the relevant 
importer during the period of review. See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) (Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties). This clarification will apply to entries of 
subject merchandise during the period of review produced by DSM for 
which DSM did not know its merchandise was destined for the United 
States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed 
entries of the DSM-produced merchandise at the all-others rate if there 
is no rate for the

intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. See Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties for a full discussion of this clarification.
    The Department will issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the 
publication of the final results of review.

Notification to Importer

    This notice 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 duties prior to liquidation of the 
relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO as explained in the APO itself. See 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely 
written notification of the 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 sanctionable violation.
    These final results of administrative review are issued and 
published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).

    Dated: April 4, 2012.
