Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
In response to a request from a domestic producer, Nucor Corporation, and a Romanian producer/exporter, Mittal Steel Galati, S.A. (``MS Galati''), the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain cut-to-length carbon steel plate (``CTL plate'') from Romania. The period of review is August 1, 2005, through December 15, 2005. With regard to the two Romanian companies that are subject to this administrative review, producer MS Galati and exporter Metalexportimport S.A. (``MEI''), we preliminarily determine that sales of subject merchandise produced by MS Galati have been made at less than normal value (``NV''). Since MEI was not involved with any of the U.S. sales during the period of review, we are assigning a preliminary dumping margin to MS Galati only and intend to rescind the review with respect to MEI. For a full discussion of the intent to rescind with respect to MEI, see the ``Notice of Intent to Rescind in Part'' section of this notice below. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. Parties that submit comments are requested to submit with each argument (1) a statement of the issue(s), (2) a brief summary of the argument(s), and (3) a table of authorities.
