[Investigation Nos. 701-TA-350 and 731-TA-616 and 618 (Third Review)]

Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products From Germany and 
Korea; Scheduling of Full Five-Year Reviews

AGENCY: United States International Trade Commission.

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: The Commission hereby gives notice of the scheduling of full 
reviews pursuant to section 751(c)(5) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 
U.S.C. 1675(c)(5)) (the Act) to determine whether revocation of the 
countervailing duty order on corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat 
products from Korea and the antidumping duty orders on corrosion-
resistant carbon steel flat products from Germany and Korea would be 
likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within 
a reasonably foreseeable time. The Commission has determined to 
exercise its authority to extend the review period by up to 90 days 
pursuant to 19 U.S.C. Sec.  1675(c)(5)(B). For further information 
concerning the conduct of these reviews and rules of general 
application, consult the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, 
part 201, subparts A through E (19 CFR part 201), and part 207, 
subparts A, D, E, and F (19 CFR part 207).

DATES: Effective Date: May 21, 2012.

    Background.--On April 9, 2012, the Commission determined that 
responses to its notice of institution of the subject five-year reviews 
were such that full reviews pursuant to section 751(c)(5) of the Act 
should proceed (77 FR 24221, April 23, 2012). A record of the 
Commissioners' votes, the Commission's statement on adequacy, and any 
individual Commissioner's statements are available from the Office of 
the Secretary and at the Commission's Web site.
    Participation in the reviews and public service list.--Persons, 
including industrial users of the subject merchandise and, if the 
merchandise is sold at the retail level, representative consumer 
organizations, wishing to participate in these reviews as parties must 
file an entry of appearance with the Secretary to the Commission, as 
provided in section 201.11 of the Commission's rules, by 45 days after 
publication of this notice. A party that filed a notice of appearance 
following publication of the Commission's notice of institution of the 
review need not file an additional notice of appearance. The Secretary 
will maintain a public service list containing the names and addresses 
of all persons, or their representatives, who are parties to the 
    Limited disclosure of business proprietary information (BPI) under 
an administrative protective order (APO) and BPI service list.--
Pursuant to section 207.7(a) of the Commission's rules, the Secretary 
will make BPI gathered in these reviews available to authorized 
applicants under the APO issued in the reviews, provided that the 
application is made by 45 days after publication of this notice. 
Authorized applicants must represent interested parties, as defined by 
19 U.S.C. Sec.  1677(9), who are parties to the reviews. A party 
granted access to BPI following publication of the Commission's notice 
of institution of the reviews need not reapply for such access. A 
separate service list will be maintained by the Secretary for those 
parties authorized to receive BPI under the APO.
    Staff report.--The prehearing staff report in the reviews will be 
placed in the nonpublic record on October 12, 2012, and a public 
version will be issued thereafter, pursuant to section 207.64 of the 
Commission's rules.
    Hearing.--The Commission will hold a hearing in connection with the 
reviews beginning at 9:30 a.m. on November 1, 2012, at the U.S. 
International Trade Commission Building. Requests to appear at the 
hearing should be filed in writing with the Secretary to the Commission 
on or before October 25, 2012. A nonparty who has testimony that may 
aid the Commission's deliberations may request permission to present a 
short statement at the hearing. All parties and nonparties desiring to 
appear at the hearing and make oral presentations should attend a 
prehearing conference

to be held at 9:30 a.m. on October 29, 2012, at the U.S. International 
Trade Commission Building. Oral testimony and written materials to be 
submitted at the public hearing are governed by sections 201.6(b)(2), 
201.13(f), 207.24, and 207.66 of the Commission's rules. Parties must 
submit any request to present a portion of their hearing testimony in 
camera no later than 7 business days prior to the date of the hearing.
    Written submissions.--Each party to the reviews may submit a 
prehearing brief to the Commission. Prehearing briefs must conform with 
the provisions of section 207.65 of the Commission's rules; the 
deadline for filing is October 23, 2012. Parties may also file written 
testimony in connection with their presentation at the hearing, as 
provided in section 207.24 of the Commission's rules, and posthearing 
briefs, which must conform with the provisions of section 207.67 of the 
Commission's rules. The deadline for filing posthearing briefs is 
November 13, 2012; witness testimony must be filed no later than three 
days before the hearing. In addition, any person who has not entered an 
appearance as a party to the reviews may submit a written statement of 
information pertinent to the subject of the reviews on or before 
November 13, 2012. On December 19, 2012, the Commission will make 
available to parties all information on which they have not had an 
opportunity to comment. Parties may submit final comments on this 
information on or before December 21, 2012, but such final comments 
must not contain new factual information and must otherwise comply with 
section 207.68 of the Commission's rules. All written submissions must 
conform with the provisions of section 201.8 of the Commission's rules; 
any submissions that contain BPI must also conform with the 
requirements of sections 201.6, 207.3, and 207.7 of the Commission's 
rules. Please be aware that the Commission's rules with respect to 
electronic filing have been amended. The amendments took effect on 
November 7, 2011. See 76 FR 61937 (Oct. 6, 2011) and the newly revised 
Commission's Handbook on E-Filing, available on the Commission's Web 
site at http://edis.usitc.gov.
    Additional written submissions to the Commission, including 
requests pursuant to section 201.12 of the Commission's rules, shall 
not be accepted unless good cause is shown for accepting such 
submissions, or unless the submission is pursuant to a specific request 
by a Commissioner or Commission staff.
    In accordance with sections 201.16(c) and 207.3 of the Commission's 
rules, each document filed by a party to the reviews must be served on 
all other parties to the reviews (as identified by either the public or 
BPI service list), and a certificate of service must be timely filed. 
The Secretary will not accept a document for filing without a 
certificate of service.

    Authority:  These reviews are being conducted under authority of 
title VII of the Tariff Act of 1930; this notice is published 
pursuant to section 207.62 of the Commission's rules.

    By order of the Commission.

    Issued: May 23, 2012.

Secretary to the Commission.
