Notification to Importers This notice serves as a preliminary 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 Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. These administrative and new shipper reviews and notice are in accordance with sections 751(a)(1), 751(a)(2)(B), and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213 and 351.214. Dated: May 2, 2005. Joseph A.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published an antidumping duty order on certain corrosion–resistant carbon steel flat products from Japan on August 19, 1993. See Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Corrosion–Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products from Japan, 58 FR 44163 (August 19, 1993). Nucor Corporation (‘‘Nucor’’), the petitioner, requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of the order. See Letter from Nucor Corporation, August 31, 2004. On September 22, 2004, the Department published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain corrosion–resistant carbon steel flat products from Japan, covering the period of August 1, 2003, to July 31, 2004. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation, In Part, 69 FR 56745. The preliminary results for this review are currently due no later than May 3, 2005. Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to issue the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. If it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department’s regulations allow the Department to extend this deadline to a maximum of 365 days. Both respondents, JFE and Nippon Steel, have declined to participate in this review. As such, the Department will apply adverse facts available pursuant to section 776(a) and (b) of the Act. The Department has continuing concerns about what the appropriate rate is to assign to JFE and Nippon Steel as adverse facts available.

of Orders

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On February 2, 2005, the Department of Commerce 
(``Department'') initiated the sunset reviews of the antidumping duty 
orders on sodium thiosulfate from the People's Republic of China, 
Germany and the United Kingdom (70 FR 5415). Because the domestic 
interested parties did not participate in these sunset reviews, the 
Department is revoking these antidumping duty orders.

EFFECTIVE DATE: March 7, 2005

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Hilary Sadler, Esq., Office of Policy, 
Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 19, 1991, the Department issued antidumping duty orders 
on sodium thiosulfate from the People's Republic of China, Germany, and 
the United Kingdom (56 FR 2904). On July 1, 1999, the Department 
initiated sunset reviews on these orders and later published its notice 
of continuation of the antidumping duty orders. See Continuation of 
Antidumping Duty Orders: Sulfur Chemicals (Sodium Thiosulfate) from the 
Untied Kingdom, Germany and the People's Republic of China, 65 FR 11985 
(March 7, 2000). On February 2, 2005, the Department initiated the 
second sunset reviews of these orders.

[[Page 24394]]

    We did not receive a notice of intent to participate from domestic 
interested parties in any of these sunset reviews by the deadline 
dates. See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(A). As a result, the Department 
determined that no domestic interested party intends to participate in 
the sunset reviews, and on October 21, 2004, we notified the 
International Trade Commission, in writing, that we intended to issue a 
final determination revoking these antidumping duty orders. See 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(2).
    Scope of the Orders:
    The merchandise covered by these orders includes all grades of 
sodium thiosulfate, in dry or liquid from, used primarily to 
dechlorinate industrial waste water, from the People's Republic of 
China, Germany, and the United Kingdom. The chemical composition of 
sodium thiosulfate is Na2S203. Currently, subject merchandise is 
classified under item number 2832.30.1000 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (``HTS''). The above HTSUS subheading is 
provided for convenience and customs purposes. The written description 
remains dispositive.

Determination to Revoke

    Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(3), if no domestic interested party files a 
notice of intent to participate, the Department shall issue a final 
determination revoking the order within 90 days after the initiation of 
the review. Because the domestic interested parties did not file a 
notice of intent to participate in these sunset reviews, the Department 
finds that no domestic interested party is participating in these 
sunset reviews. Therefore, consistent with 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i) and 
section 751(c)(6)(A)(iii) of the Act, we are revoking these antidumping 
duty orders effective March 7, 2005, the fifth anniversary of the date 
the Department published the continuation of the antidumping duty 
orders.

Effective Date of Revocation

    Pursuant to sections 751(c)(3)(A) and 751(c)(6)(A)(iii) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i), the Department will instruct U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection to terminate the suspension of liquidation of the 
merchandise subject to these orders entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, on or after March 7, 2005. Entries of subject merchandise 
prior to the effective date of revocation will continue to be subject 
to suspension of liquidation and antidumping duty deposit requirements. 
The Department will complete any pending administrative reviews of 
these orders and will conduct administrative reviews of subject 
merchandise entered prior to the effective date of revocation in 
response to appropriately filed requests for review.
    These five-year (sunset) reviews and notice are in accordance with 
sections 751(c) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
