On June 6, 2008, the Department published the Preliminary Intent. We invited comments to comment on the Preliminary Intent, and received no comments.

Period of Review

The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2007, to July 31, 2007.

Rescission of New Shipper Review

In the Preliminary Intent, we stated that we intended to rescind the review with respect to Hotmetal because we had determined, based on the totality of the circumstances, that Hotmetal's U.S. sales were not bona fide. See Preliminary Intent at 32291. Hotmetal submitted no comments, and we have found no basis for changing the determination announced in the Preliminary Intent. Therefore we are rescinding the new shipper review.

Assessment of Antidumping Duties

A cash deposit of 162.14 percent shall be collected for any entries produced/exported by Hotmetal. The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP fifteen days after the publication of this notice.

Notification to Interested Parties

This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred, and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act.
