Initiation of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from Thailand
Document Number: E8-7204
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-04-07
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
In accordance with section 751(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.216(b), United States Steel Corporation (petitioner) filed a request for the Department of Commerce (the Department) to initiate a changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty order on certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat products (hot-rolled steel) from Thailand. Petitioner alleges that Sahaviriya Steel Industries Public Company Limited (SSI), a Thai hot-rolled steel producer previously revoked from the antidumping duty order, has resumed sales at prices below normal value (NV). Petitioner notes that SSI agreed in writing to reinstatement in the antidumping duty order if it was found to have resumed dumping, and contends that SSI violated this agreement by selling hot-rolled steel at less than NV in the United States subsequent to its revocation from the order. Therefore, petitioner requests that the Department reinstate the antidumping duty order with respect to SSI. The Department finds the information submitted by petitioner sufficient to warrant initiation of a changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty order on hot-rolled steel from Thailand with respect to SSI. In this changed circumstances review, we will determine whether SSI sold hot-rolled steel at less than NV subsequent to its revocation from the order. If we determine in this changed circumstances review that SSI sold hot-rolled steel at less than NV and resumed dumping, we will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to suspend liquidation of all entries of hot-rolled steel manufactured and exported by SSI.

Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. See the ``Preliminary Results of Review'' section of this notice.

Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is currently conducting the 2006 2007 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain tissue paper products from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). The period of review (``POR'') for this review is March 1, 2006, through February 28, 2007. Ten respondents reported that they had no exports or sales of the subject merchandise during the POR. After checking U.S. Customs and Border Protection data, we are preliminarily rescinding our review of these companies. Additionally, in conducting the review, the Department found that both Max Fortune Industrial Limited & Max Fortune (FETDE) Paper Products Co., Ltd. (collectively ``Max Fortune'') and Guilin Qifeng Paper Co., Ltd. (``Guilin Qifeng'') reported subject sales to the United States during the POR, which the Department found to have entered as not subject to antidumping duties, and thus were liquidated without the assess of such duties. With respect to Max Fortune, the Department will continue to collect additional information from Max Fortune and CBP, and consider this issue for the final results. With respect to Guilin Qifeng, because we found that Guilin Qifeng made no dutiable entries of subject tissue paper during the POR, the Department is preliminarily rescinding its review with respect to Guilin Qifeng. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of this review, we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise during the POR. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. We will issue the final results no later than 120 days from the date of publication of this notice, unless extended.
