SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Applicable Statute and Regulations

Unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the statute are references to the provisions effective January 1, 1995, the effective date of the amendments made to the Tariff Act of 1930 (the Act) by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (URAA). In addition, unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Department of Commerce (Department) regulations are to the regulations at 19 CFR part 351 (April 2001).

Correction to Scope of Investigations

On July 19, 2002, the Department issued the Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value for Certain Cold-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products From Australia (Australia Cold-Rolled Final), one of the concurrent investigations on cold-rolled steel products, 67 FR 47509 (July 19, 2002). A description of the scope of these investigations was contained in the “Scope Appendix” attached to the Australia Cold-Rolled Final. However, one of the exclusions of porcelain enameling sheet was not fully described in that appendix and the exclusion of texture-rolled steel strip (SORBITEX) did not contain the proper width measurement in that appendix. The corrected scope is appended to this notice. For a full discussion of the comments received on the preliminary scope rulings see the “Issues and Start Printed Page 52935Decision Memorandum for the Final Scope Rulings in the Antidumping Duty Investigations on Certain Cold-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, France, Germany, India, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, New Zealand, the People's Republic of China, the Russian Federation, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, and Venezuela, and in the Countervailing Duty Investigations of Certain Cold-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from Argentina, Brazil, France, and Korea,” dated July 10, 2002, which is on file in the Department of Commerce's Central Records Unit, room B099.

Notification

The Department will notify the U.S. Customs Service and the International Trade Commission of these corrections to the scope.

This determination is issued and published in accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

Appendix I: Final Scope Rulings; Scope of the AD/CVD Investigations on Certain Cold-Rolled Steel Products

Scope of Investigation

For purposes of this investigation, the products covered are certain cold-rolled (cold-reduced) flat-rolled carbon-quality steel products, neither clad, plated, nor coated with metal, but whether or not annealed, painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other non-metallic substances, both in coils, 0.5 inch wide or wider, (whether or not in successively superimposed layers and/or otherwise coiled, such as spirally oscillated coils), and also in straight lengths, which, if less than 4.75 mm in thickness having a width that is 0.5 inch or greater and that measures at least 10 times the thickness; or, if of a thickness of 4.75 mm or more, having a width exceeding 150 mm and measuring at least twice the thickness. The products described above may be rectangular, square, circular or other shape and include products of either rectangular or non-rectangular cross-section.

Specifically included in this scope are vacuum degassed, fully stabilized (commonly referred to as interstitial-free (IF)) steels, high strength low alloy (HSLA) steels, and motor lamination steels. IF steels are recognized as low carbon steels with micro-alloying levels of elements such as titanium and/or niobium added to stabilize carbon and nitrogen elements. HSLA steels are recognized as steels with micro-alloying levels of elements such as chromium, copper, niobium, titanium, vanadium, and molybdenum. Motor lamination steels contain micro-alloying levels of elements such as silicon and aluminum.

Steel products included in the scope of this investigation, regardless of definitions in the HTSUS, are products in which: (1) Iron predominates, by weight, over each of the other contained elements; (2) the carbon content is 2% or less, by weight, and; (3) none of the elements listed below exceeds the quantity, by weight, respectively indicated: 1.80% of manganese, or 2.25% of silicon, or 1.00% of copper, or 0.50% of aluminum, or 1.25% of chromium, or 0.30% of cobalt, or 0.40% of lead, or 1.25% of nickel, or 0.30% of tungsten, or 0.10% of molybdenum, or 0.10% of niobium (also called columbium), or 0.15% of vanadium, or 0.15% of zirconium.

All products that meet the written physical description, and in which the chemistry quantities do not exceed any one of the noted element levels listed above, are within the scope of this investigation unless specifically excluded.

The following products, by way of example, are outside and/or specifically excluded from the scope of this investigation:

  • SAE grades (formerly also called AISI grades) above 2300;
  • Ball bearing steels, as defined in the HTSUS;
  • Tool steels, as defined in the HTSUS;
  • Silico-manganese steel, as defined in the HTSUS;

  • Non-rectangular shapes, not in coils, which are the result of having been processed by cutting or stamping and which have assumed the character of articles or products classified outside chapter 72 of the HTSUS;
  • Silicon-electrical steels, as defined in the HTSUS, that are not grain-oriented and that have a silicon level less than 2.25%, and (a) fully-processed, with a core loss of less than 0.14 watts/pound per mil (0.001 inch), or (b) semi-processed, with core loss of less than 0.085 watts/pound per mil (0.001 inch);
