Background

On August 31, 2000, the Department received a timely request from Hyundai Pipe Co., Ltd. (“HDP”) in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(d), for a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on certain cold-rolled carbon steel flat products from Korea, which has an August anniversary date. See Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Cold-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from Korea, 58 FR 44159 (August 19, 1993).

Initiation of Review

In its request of August 31, 2000, HDP, as required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i) and (b)(2)(iii)(A), certified that it did not export the subject merchandise to the United States during the period of investigation (“POI”) January 1, 1992 through June 30, 1992, and that since the investigation was initiated on July 20, 1992, (57 FR 33488, July 29, 1992), it has not been affiliated with any company which exported the subject merchandise to the United States during the POI. Pursuant to the Department's regulations at 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), HDP submitted documentation establishing the date on which it first entered the subject merchandise to the United States, the volume of that first shipment, and the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States.

In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(d), we are initiating a new shipper review of the antidumping order on cold-rolled steel from Korea. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(h)(1), we intend to issue preliminary results of this review no later than 180 days after the date of initiation.

In accordance with section 351.214(g)(1)(i)(A) of the Department's regulations, the period of review (“POR”) for a new shipper review initiated in the month immediately following the annual anniversary month is the twelve-month period preceding the anniversary month. Therefore, the POR for this new shipper is August 1, 1999 through July 31, 2000.

Concurrent with publication of this notice and in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(e), we will instruct the U.S. Customs Service to allow, at the option of the importer, the posting of a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for each entry of the merchandise exported by the above listed company, until the completion of this review.

The interested parties must submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 351.306.

This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 751(a) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1675(a)) and 19 CFR 351.214.
