See generally 19 CFR 351.212. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. For Hubschercorp’s U.S. sales, we will base the assessment rate assigned to the corresponding entries on AFA, determined as noted above. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Hubschercorp will be the rate shown above; (2) for previously investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published in the LTFV investigation; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, or the LTFV investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the LTFV investigation for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 4.37 percent, the allothers rate made effective by the LTFV investigation.3 These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility, under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2), 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 Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

SUMMARY: On July 27, 2012, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) issued the preliminary results of the full 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’’).1 We received comments from interested parties on our Preliminary Results. As a result of our analysis, the Department finds that revocation of these AD orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at margins of dumping specified in the ‘‘Final Results of Reviews’’ section of this notice. DATES: Effective Date: December 6, 2012. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: James Terpstra, AD/CVD Operations, Office 8, Import Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–3965. AGENCY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION Background mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with 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 Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘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 1 Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products From Germany and the Republic of Korea: Preliminary Results of Full Sunset Reviews, 77 FR 44213 (July 27, 2012) and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). 2 Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 77 FR 85 (January 3, 2012). VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:42 Dec 05, 2012 Jkt 229001 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). 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 On July 27, 2012, the Department published in the Preliminary Results of the full third sunset review of the AD order on CORE from Germany and Korea.5 We preliminarily found that dumping was likely to continue or recur. The Department invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. On September 17, 2012, we received case briefs from AMUSA and U.S. Steel. We did not receive a rebuttal brief. We did not conduct a hearing in either review because a hearing was not requested. As explained in the memorandum from the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, the Department exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from October 29, through October 30, 2012. Thus, all deadlines in this segment of the 3 Memorandum to Barbara E. Tillman, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping Duty and Countervailing Duty Operations, from Melissa G. Skinner, Director, Office 3, on ‘‘Sunset Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders on CorrosionResistant Carbon Steel Flat Products from Germany and South Korea: Adequacy Redetermination Memorandum’’ and 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, 77 FR 25141 (April 27, 2012). 4 Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification for Reviews, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) (‘‘Final Modification for Reviews’’). 5 Preliminary Results.

The revised deadline for the final results of these reviews is now November 30, 2012.6 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 corrosionresistant metals such as zinc, aluminum, or zinc-, aluminum-, nickel- or ironbased 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, 7210.69.0000, 7210.70.6030, 7210.70.6060, 7210.70.6090, 7210.90.1000, 7210.90.6000, 7210.90.9000, 7212.20.0000, 7212.30.1030, 7212.30.1090, 7212.30.3000, 7212.30.5000, 7212.40.1000, 7212.40.5000, 7212.50.0000, 7212.60.0000, 7215.90.1000, 7215.90.3000, 7215.90.5000, 7217.20.1500, 7217.30.1530, 7217.30.1560, 7217.90.1000, 7217.90.5030, 7217.90.5060, 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 (‘‘tinfree steel’’), whether or not painted, varnished or coated with plastics or other nonmetallic substances in addition to the metallic coating.
