ACTION:

Notice of Revocation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders on Certain Carbon Steel Products from Canada, Germany, Korea, the Netherlands, and Sweden.

SUMMARY:

Pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), the United States International Trade Commission (“the Commission”) determined that revocation of the following antidumping and countervailing duty orders on certain carbon steel products from Canada (A-122-823), Germany (A-428-814, C-428-817), Korea (A-580-815, C-580-818), the Netherlands (A-421-804), and Sweden (C-401-401), is not likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. See 65 FR 75301 (December 1, 2000). Therefore, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(1), the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) is revoking the following antidumping and countervailing duty orders:

Background

On September 1, 1999, the Department initiated (64 FR 47767), and the Commission instituted, (64 FR 47862) sunset reviews of the antidumping and countervailing duty orders on certain carbon steel products from Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. As a result of its reviews, the Department found that revocation of the following antidumping and countervailing duty orders on certain carbon steel products would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and/or subsidization, and notified the Commission of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail were the orders revoked:

The scope of the antidumping duty order on cut-to-length steel plate from Canada includes hot-rolled carbon steel universal mill plates (i.e., flat-rolled products rolled on four faces or in a closed box pass, of a width exceeding 150 millimeters but not exceeding 1,250 millimeters and of a thickness of not less than 4 millimeters, not in coils and without patterns in relief), of rectangular shape, neither clad, plated, nor coated with metal, whether or not painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other nonmetallic substances; and certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat-rolled products in straight lengths, of rectangular shape, hot rolled, neither clad, plated, nor coated with metal, whether or not painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other nonmetallic substances, 4.75 millimeters or more in thickness and of a width which exceeds 150 millimeters and measures at least twice the thickness, as currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (“HTS”) under item numbers: 7208.40.3030, 7208.40.3060, 7208.51.5030, 7208.51.0045, 7208.51.0060, 7208.52.0000, 7208.53.0000, 7208.90.0000, 7210.70.3000, 7210.90.9000, 7211.13.0000, 7211.14.0030, 7211.14.0045, 7211.90.0000, 7212.40.1000, 7212.40.5000, and 7212.50.0000. Included in this order are flat-rolled products of non-rectangular cross-section where such cross-section is achieved subsequent to the rolling process (i.e., products which have been “worked after rolling”)—for example, products which have been beveled or rounded at the edges. Excluded from the antidumping duty order on cut-to-length from Canada is grade X-70 plate. Also excluded is cut-to-length carbon steel plate, meeting the following criteria: (1) 100 percent dry steel plates, virgin steel, no scrap content (free of Cobalt-60 and other radioactive nuclides); (2) 0.290 inches maximum thickness, plus 0.0, minus 0.030 inches; (3) 48.00 inch wide, plus 0.05, minus 0.0 inches; (4) 10 foot lengths, plus 0.5, minus 0.0 inches; (5) flatness, plus/minus 0.5 inch over 10 feet; (6) AISI 1006; (7) tension leveled; (8) pickled and oiled; and (9) carbon content, 0.3 to 0.8 (maximum).

On February 12, 1999, the Department revoked the order with respect to cut-to-length carbon steel plate from Canada, free of cobalt-60 and other radioactive nuclides; and with certain dimensions and other characteristics. See 64 FR 7167 (February 12, 1999). The HTS item numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes. The written description remains dispositive.
