SUMMARY: Pursuant to section 751(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.216 and 351.221(c)(3), the Department of Commerce (Department) is initiating a changed circumstances review (CCR) of the antidumping duty (AD) order on low-enriched uranium (LEU) from France with respect to Global Nuclear Fuel-Americas, LLC (GNF–A).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On February 13, 2002, the Department published an order on LEU from France.1 The order contains a provision to exclude from the scope LEU owned by a: foreign utility end-user and imported into the United States by or for such end-user solely for purposes of conversion by a U.S. fabricator into uranium dioxide (UO2) and/or fabrication into fuel assemblies so long as the uranium dioxide and/or fuel assemblies deemed to incorporate such imported LEU (i) remain in the possession and control of the U.S. fabricator, the foreign end-user, or their designed transporter(s) while in U.S. customs territory, and (ii) are re-exported within eighteen (18) months of entry of the LEU for consumption by the end-user in a nuclear reactor outside the United States. Such entries must be accompanied by the certifications of the importer and end user.2 1 See Notice of Amended Final Determination and Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Low Enriched Uranium From France, 67 FR 6680 (February 13, 2002). 2 See id. PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 On December 23, 2013, GNF–A requested that the Department initiate a CCR due to earthquakes and other external events which have presented changed circumstances not present at the time of the AD order. GNF–A contends that these changed circumstances have affected GNF–A’s management of imports to maintain compliance with the AD order, and delayed the re-export of subject merchandise. GNF–A requested that the CCR be conducted on an expedited basis, combining the initiation and preliminary results of the review in a single notice under 19 CFR 351.216(e) and 351.221(c)(3)(ii). Scope of the Order The product covered by the order is all low-enriched uranium. Lowenriched uranium is enriched uranium hexafluoride (UF6) with a U235 product assay of less than 20 percent that has not been converted into another chemical form, such as UO2, or fabricated into nuclear fuel assemblies, regardless of the means by which the LEU is produced (including lowenriched uranium produced through the down-blending of highly enriched uranium). Certain merchandise is outside the scope of the order. Specifically, the order does not cover enriched uranium hexafluoride with a U235 assay of 20 percent or greater, also known as highlyenriched uranium. In addition, fabricated low-enriched uranium is not covered by the scope of the order. For purposes of the order, fabricated uranium is defined as enriched uranium dioxide (UO2), whether or not contained in nuclear fuel rods or assemblies. Natural uranium concentrates (U3O8) with a U235 concentration of no greater than 0.711 percent and natural uranium concentrates converted into uranium hexafluoride with a U235 concentration of no greater than 0.711 percent are not covered by the scope of the order. Also excluded from the order is lowenriched uranium owned by a foreign utility end-user and imported into the United States by or for such end-user solely for purposes of conversion by a U.S. fabricator into uranium dioxide (UO2) and/or fabrication into fuel assemblies so long as the uranium dioxide and/or fuel assemblies deemed to incorporate such imported lowenriched uranium (i) remain in the possession and control of the U.S. fabricator, the foreign end-user, or their designed transporter(s) while in U.S. customs territory, and (ii) are reexported within eighteen (18) months of entry of the low-enriched uranium for consumption by the end-user in a E:\FR\FM\07FEN1.SGM 07FEN1

Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products From India, 
Indonesia, the People's Republic of China, Taiwan, Thailand, and 
Ukraine: Continuation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, formerly Import Administration, 
International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) has determined 
that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on certain hot-rolled 
carbon steel flat products from India, Indonesia, the People's Republic 
of China (PRC), Taiwan, Thailand, and Ukraine would likely lead to 
continuation or recurrence of dumping, and that revocation of the 
countervailing duty orders on certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat 
products from India, Indonesia, and Thailand would likely lead to 
continuation or recurrence of a countervailable subsidy. The U.S. 
International Trade Commission (USITC) has also determined that 
revocation of these AD and CVD orders would likely lead to a 
continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the 
United States. Therefore, the Department is publishing a notice of 
continuation of these antidumping and countervailing duty orders.

DATES:  Effective Date: February 7, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 5, 2012, the Department initiated the second five-year 
(``sunset'') reviews of the antidumping duty orders on certain hot-
rolled carbon steel flat products from India, Indonesia, the PRC, 
Taiwan, Thailand, and Ukraine and the second sunset reviews of the 
countervailing duty orders on certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat 
products from India, Indonesia, and Thailand, pursuant to section 
751(c) and 752 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).\1\ As a 
result of its reviews, the Department found that revocation of these 
antidumping duty orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence 
of dumping and that revocation of these countervailing duty orders 
would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of countervailable 
subsidies, and notified the USITC of the magnitude of the margins of 
dumping and the subsidy rates likely to prevail should the orders be 
revoked.\2\

    On January 22, 2014, the USITC published its determination, 
pursuant to section 751(c)(1) and section 752(a) of the Act, that 
revocation of the antidumping duty orders on certain hot-rolled carbon 
steel flat products from India, Indonesia, the PRC, Taiwan, Thailand, 
and Ukraine and the countervailing duty orders on certain hot-rolled 
carbon steel flat products from India, Indonesia, and Thailand would 
likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury to an 
industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.\3\

Continuation of the Orders

    As a result of the determinations by the Department and the USITC 
that revocation of these antidumping and countervailing duty orders 
would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and a 
countervailable subsidy, and material injury to an industry in the 
United States, pursuant to section 751(c) and section 751(d)(2) of the 
Act, the Department hereby orders the continuation of the antidumping 
duty orders on certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat products from 
India, Indonesia, the PRC, Taiwan, Thailand, and Ukraine and the 
continuation of the countervailing duty orders on certain hot-rolled 
carbon steel flat products from India, Indonesia, and Thailand.
    U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect cash 
deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of 
subject merchandise. The effective date of the continuation of these 
orders will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of this 
notice of continuation. Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act, the 
Department intends to initiate the next five-year reviews of these 
orders not later than 30 days prior to the fifth anniversary of the 
effective date of continuation.
    These five-year (sunset) reviews and this notice are in accordance 
with section 751(c) of the Act and published pursuant to section 
777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(f)(4).
