Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products From Thailand; Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Intent to Revoke and Rescind in Part
Document Number: 05-23876
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-12-09
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
In response to requests from Sahaviriya Steel Industries Public Company Limited (SSI), United States Steel Corporation (petitioner), and Nucor Corporation (domestic interested party (Nucor)), the Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain hot- rolled carbon steel flat products (hot-rolled steel) from Thailand. This administrative review covers imports of subject merchandise produced and exported by SSI. We preliminarily determine that sales of subject merchandise by SSI have been made at not less than normal value (NV). Because SSI made sales at not less than NV for three consecutive years during the antidumping duty order, we are preliminarily revoking the order on hot- rolled steel from Thailand with respect to SSI. See Intent to Revoke with Respect to SSI below. In addition, we are preliminarily rescinding this review with respect to Nakornthai Strip Mill Public Co., Ltd. (Nakornthai) and G Street Public Company Limited (formerly Siam Strip Mill Public Co., Ltd.) (G Street), because both companies reported, and we confirmed, that neither made shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on appropriate entries based on the difference between the export price (EP) and the NV. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. Parties who submit argument in this proceeding are requested to submit with the argument: 1) a statement of the issues, 2) a brief summary of the argument, and 3) a table of authorities.

Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration

See Cut-to-Length Carbon-Quality Steel Plate from France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, and Korea, 70 FR 71331 (November 28, 2005) (``ITC Determination'').

Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NOAA's National Ocean Service (NOS) is announcing the distribution of Raster Navigational Charts (RNCs) to the public via the Internet.

Paper versions of the nautical charts will continue to be available from existing sources. In addition, NOS is announcing the availability of a public service by which fully updated versions of NOAA nautical charts are posted on the Internet in a manner that they may be readily examined on-line. The intent of this service is to make the updated charts easily accessible anywhere for use as a planning and reference tool. Access to the on- line, nautical chart viewer can be had from http:// www.NauticalCharts.gov/viewer.
