Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products From Germany and 
South Korea: Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary and Final Results 
of Third Antidumping Duty Sunset Reviews

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

DATES: Effective Date: April 27, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dennis McClure or James Terpstra at 
202-482-5973 or 202-482-3965, respectively, AD/CVD Operations, Office 
3, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., 
Washington, DC 20230.

Background

    On January 3, 2012, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
initiated the third sunset reviews of the antidumping duty (AD) orders 
on corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products (CORE) from Germany 
and South Korea (Korea), pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (the Act). See Initiation of Five-Year (``Sunset'') 
Review, 77 FR 85 (January 3, 2012). Within the deadline specified in 19 
CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i), the Department received notices of intent to 
participate, in both sunset reviews, on behalf of United States Steel 
Corporation, Nucor Corporation, and ArcelorMittal Steel USA 
(collectively, domestic interested parties). Each claimed interested 
party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as a producer of 
domestic like product. The Department received timely substantive 
responses from the domestic interested parties. On February 22, 2012, 
after analyzing the substantive and rebuttal responses of interested 
parties, consistent with 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(A), the Department 
determined to conduct expedited sunset reviews of these AD orders on 
the basis that no respondent interested party submitted a substantive 
response in either review.
    On February 14, 2012, the Department published in the Federal 
Register a notice entitled Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the 
Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain 
Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 
14, 2012) (Final Modification for Reviews).

[[Page 25142]]

In that notice, the Department announced the modification of its 
methodology regarding the calculation of the weighted-average dumping 
margins in certain segments of antidumping duty proceedings and stated 
that it would apply to all sunset reviews for which preliminary or 
final results were due more than 60 days after publication (i.e., April 
16, 2012). On April 20, 2012, the Department reconsidered its 
determination to conduct expedited sunset reviews of these orders and 
determined to conduct full sunset reviews of the AD orders on CORE from 
Germany and Korea. See Memorandum to Barbara E. Tillman, Acting Deputy 
Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, 
from Melissa G. Skinner, Director, Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, Office 3, regarding ``Sunset Reviews of the Antidumping 
Duty Orders on Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products from 
Germany and South Korea: Adequacy Redetermination Memorandum,'' (April 
20, 2012). The preliminary results of these full sunset reviews are 
currently due April 23, 2012.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The due date actually falls on April 22, 2012, which is a 
weekend. Therefore, the deadline moves to the next business day 
which is April 23, 2012. 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, 2008).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Extension of Time Limits

    In accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B) of the Act, the Department 
may extend the period of time for making its determination by not more 
than 90 days, if it determines that the sunset review is 
extraordinarily complicated. We determine that these AD sunset reviews 
are extraordinarily complicated, pursuant to section 751(c)(5)(C) of 
the Act, because of a large number of complex issues in each review 
that the Department must analyze pursuant to the Final Modification for 
Reviews
    The preliminary results of these full sunset reviews of the AD 
orders on CORE from Germany and Korea are currently scheduled for April 
23, 2012, and the final results of these reviews are scheduled for 
August 30, 2012. The Department is extending the deadlines for both the 
preliminary and final results of these full sunset reviews. As a 
result, the Department intends to issue the preliminary results of 
these full sunset reviews of the AD orders on CORE from Germany and 
Korea no later than July 21, 2012, and the final results of the reviews 
no later than November 28, 2012. These dates are 90 days from the 
original scheduled dates of the preliminary and final results of these 
full sunset reviews.
    This notice is issued in accordance with sections 751(c)(5)(B) and 
(C)(v) of the Act.

    Dated: April 20, 2012.
