DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE
International Trade Administration

 

Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Commerce.

ACTION: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews of Cold-Rolled and Corrosion Resistant Carbon 
Steel Flat Products and Certain Cut-To-Length Carbon Steel Plate from 
Various Countries.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) has received 
requests to conduct administrative reviews of antidumping duty (AD) and 
countervailing duty (CVD) orders on cold-rolled and corrosion resistant 
carbon steel flat products and certain cut-to-length carbon steel plate 
from various countries with August anniversary dates. In accordance 
with the Department's Regulations, we are initiating these 
administrative reviews.

EFFECTIVE DATE: September 8, 1994.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Maureen Price, Import Administration, 
International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th 
Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230, telephone: 
(202) 482-2104.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Department has received timely requests, in accordance with 19 
CFR 353.22(a) and 355.22(a) (1994), for administrative reviews of 
various antidumping and countervailing duty orders with August 
anniversary dates.
    Because the number of countries and companies involved in these 
cases is extraordinarily large, the Department has decided to do the 
following: First, the Department will issue single administrative 
protective orders (APO) covering the consolidated AD or CVD records for 
each country. Second, although there are separate AD case numbers and 
separate reviews that will be conducted for each class or kind of 
merchandise, we will combine--as was done in the investigation--the 
records of each class or kind of merchandise into a lead case record 
for each country. The lead AD case numbers for each country are: 
Australia (A-602-803), Canada (A-122-820), Finland (A-405-802), Germany 
(A-428-813), Korea (A-580-814), the Netherlands (A-421-803), and Sweden 
(A-401-805). For example, parties participating in any of AD cases on 
steel products from France should file their submissions under case 
number A-427-806, which is the lead case number for France. This is not 
an issue for the CVD orders because there is only one case number for 
each country subject to a CVD order. However, all appropriate case 
numbers should continue to appear on each document. In addition, the 
Department requires parties filing documents that relate to all steel 
cases to submit comments to the General Issue files, public version 
only (A-100-003 and C-100-004).

Initiation of Reviews

    In accordance with sections 19 CFR 353.22(c) and 355.22(c), we are 
initiating administrative reviews of the following antidumping and 
countervailing duty orders. We intend to issue the final results of 
these reviews not later than August 31, 1995. The following list 
consists of administrative reviews requested. However, the Department 
may determine at a later date to collapse some related parties.
