The domestic interested parties claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as U.S. producers of the subject merchandise. The Department received complete substantive responses from the domestic interested parties within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). The Department did not receive a substantive response from any respondent in either of the sunset reviews of the AD orders on CORE from Germany and Korea. As a result, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department determined to conduct expedited reviews of these orders. However, on April 20, 2012, the Department revised its original adequacy determination and determined to conduct full sunset reviews.3 The conversion to full sunset reviews and extension of the deadlines for the preliminary results were done to provide interested parties with an opportunity to comment concerning the implementation of the Final Modification for Reviews.4 The Department provided interested parties with an opportunity to comment on how the implementation of the Final Modification for Reviews applies to the sunset reviews of the AD orders on CORE from Germany and Korea.

Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products From Germany and 
the Republic of Korea: Preliminary Results of Full Sunset Reviews

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

SUMMARY: On January 3, 2012, the Department of Commerce (''the 
Department'') initiated the third sunset reviews of the antidumping 
duty (``AD'') orders on certain corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat 
products (``CORE'') from Germany and the Republic of Korea (``Korea'') 
pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''). On April 20, 2012, the Department revised its original adequacy 
determination and determined to conduct full sunset reviews of the AD 
orders on CORE from Germany and Korea as provided for in section 
751(c)(5)(A) of the Act and in 19 CFR 351.218(e)(2), and extended the 
deadlines for the preliminary and final results.\1\ As a result of its 
analysis, the Department preliminarily finds that revocation of these 
AD orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of 
dumping at the margins indicated in the ``Preliminary Results of 
Review'' section of this notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On January 3, 2012, the Department initiated the third sunset 
review of the AD orders on CORE from Germany and Korea pursuant to 
section 751(c) of the Act.\2\ The Department received notices of intent 
to participate from the following domestic interested parties: United 
States Steel Corporation (``U.S. Steel''); ArcelorMittal USA LLC 
(``AMUSA''); and Nucor Corporation (``Nucor''), within the deadline 
specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). The domestic interested parties 
claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as 
U.S. producers of the subject merchandise. The Department received 
complete substantive responses from the domestic interested parties 
within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Initiation of Five-year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 77 FR 85 
(January 3, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department did not receive a substantive response from any 
respondent in either of the sunset reviews of the AD orders on CORE 
from Germany and Korea. As a result, pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department determined to conduct expedited 
reviews of these orders. However, on April 20, 2012, the Department 
revised its original adequacy determination and determined to conduct 
full sunset reviews.\3\ The conversion to full sunset reviews and 
extension of the deadlines for the preliminary results were done to 
provide interested parties with an opportunity to comment concerning 
the implementation of the Final Modification for Reviews.\4\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department provided interested parties with an opportunity to 
comment on how the implementation of the Final Modification for Reviews 
applies to the sunset reviews of the AD orders on CORE from Germany and 
Korea. U.S. Steel, Nucor, and AMUSA submitted comments on June 8, 2012. 
ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe AG, a German producer and exporter, submitted 
comments on June 8, 2012. U.S. Steel, Nucor, and AMUSA submitted 
rebuttal comments on June 15, 2012.

Scope of the Orders

    The products subject to the orders include flat-rolled carbon steel 
products, of rectangular shape, either clad, plated, or coated with 
corrosion-resistant metals such as zinc, aluminum, or zinc-, aluminum-, 
nickel- or iron-based alloys, whether or not corrugated or painted, 
varnished or coated with plastics or other nonmetallic substances in 
addition to the metallic coating, in coils (whether or not in 
successively superimposed layers) and of a width of 0.5 inch or 
greater, or in straight lengths which, if of a thickness less than 4.75 
mm, are of a width of 0.5 inch or greater and which measures at least 
10 times the thickness, or if of a thickness of 4.75 mm or more, are of 
a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least twice the thickness, 
as currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (``HTSUS'') under item numbers: 7210.30.0030, 
7210.30.0060, 7210.41.0000, 7210.49.0030, 7210.49.0090, 7210.61.0000,

and 7217.90.5090.
    Included in the orders are flat-rolled products of nonrectangular 
cross-section where such cross-section is achieved subsequent to the 
rolling process (i.e., products which have been ``worked after 
rolling'')--for example, products which have been beveled or rounded at 
the edges.
    Excluded from the scope of the orders are flat-rolled steel 
products either plated or coated with tin, lead, chromium, chromium 
oxides, both tin and lead (``terne plate''), or both chromium and 
chromium oxides (``tin-free steel''), whether or not painted, varnished 
or coated with plastics or other nonmetallic substances in addition to 
the metallic coating. Also excluded from the scope of the orders are 
clad products in straight lengths of 0.1875 inch or more in composite 
thickness and of a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least 
twice the thickness. Also excluded from the scope of the orders are 
certain clad stainless flat-rolled products, which are three-

layered corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat-rolled products less than 
4.75 mm in composite thickness that consist of a carbon steel flat-
rolled product clad on both sides with stainless steel in a 20%-60%-20% 
ratio.
    Further, the Department made three changed circumstances 
determination with respect to the order on Germany. The Department 
partially revoked the order with respect to deep-drawing carbon steel 
strip, roll-clad on both sides with aluminum (AlSi) foils in accordance 
with St3 LG as to EN 10139/10140.\5\ The Department also partially 
revoked the order with respect to certain wear plate products.\6\ In 
addition, the Department partially revoked the order with respect to 
the following products: Certain corrosion-resistant carbon steel from 
Germany, meeting the following description: electrolytically zinc 
coated flat steel products, with a coating mass between 35 and 72 grams 
per meter squared on each side; with a thickness range of 0.67 mm or 
more but not more than 2.95 mm and width 817 mm or more but not over 
1830 mm; having the following chemical composition (percent by weight): 
carbon not over 0.08, silicon not over 0.25, manganese not over 0.9, 
phosphorous not over 0.025, sulfur not over 0.012, chromium not over 
0.1, titanium not over 0.005 and niobium not over 0.05; with a minimum 
yield strength of 310 Mpa and a minimum tensile strength of 390 Mpa; 
additionally coated on one or both sides with an organic coating
