Notice of Amended Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Artist Canvas from the People's Republic of China
Document Number: E5-7400
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-12-15
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On November 7, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') published its affirmative preliminary determination in this proceeding. See Notice of Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Artist Canvas from the People's Republic of China, 70 FR 67412 (November 7, 2005) (``Preliminary Determination''). While the Department did not receive any allegations of ministerial errors in the Preliminary Determination, the Department inadvertently stated an inaccurate manufacturer/producer name in the provided combination rate, and inadvertently failed to include one combination rate. In the Preliminary Determination, the Department stated it would calculate combination rates for certain respondents that are eligible for a separate rate in this investigation. Thus, we granted Jiangsu Animal By-products Import & Export Group Corp. (``Jiangsu By- products'') (i.e., a separate rate applicant) a separate rate and calculated a combination rate for Jiangsu By-products. However, in our Weighted-Average Dumping Margins section, the Department inadvertently stated an inaccurate manufacturer/producer name in the provided combination rate for Jiangsu By-products, and inadvertently failed to include one combination rate for Jiangsu By-products. Therefore, we are correcting the Weighted-Average Dumping Margins section to include the additional combination rate and to correct the manufacturer/producer name.

Stainless Steel Bar from India: Notice of Court Decision Not in Harmony and Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation
Document Number: E5-7275
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-12-13
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On October 20, 2005, in Slater Steels Corp. v. United States, Consol. Court No. 02-00551, Slip Op. 05-137 (CIT October 20, 2005) (``Slater III''), a lawsuit challenging the Department of Commerce's (``the Department'') Notice of Amended Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Stainless Steel Bar from India, 67 FR 53336 (August 15, 2002) (``Final Results'') and the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum (July 5, 2002) (``Decision Memorandum''), the Court of International Trade (``CIT'') affirmed the Department's third remand determination and entered a judgment order. In the remand determination, the Department did not collapse Viraj Alloys Limited (``VAL'') with Viraj Impoexpo Limited (``VIL'') and Viraj Forgings Limited (``VFL''). The Department calculated an individual antidumping duty margin for VIL/VFL. The Department did not calculate an individual antidumping duty margin for VAL because it did not export the subject merchandise to the United States during the period of review. The resulting antidumping duty margin for VIL/VFL is 0.84 percent. Consistent with the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (``Federal Circuit'') in Timken Co. v. United States, 893 F.2d 337 (Fed. Cir. 1990) (``Timken''), the Department will continue to order the suspension of liquidation of the subject merchandise until there is a ``conclusive'' decision in this case. If the case is not appealed, or if it is affirmed on appeal, the Department will instruct the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to liquidate all relevant entries of subject merchandise for VIL/VFL.

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.
