Download as PDF 24394 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 88 / Monday, May 9, 2005 / Notices 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and Border Protection to terminate the suspension of liquidation of the merchandise subject to these orders entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, on or after March 7, 2005.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 VerDate jul<14>2003 17:20 May 06, 2005 Jkt 205001 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.

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On October 1, 2004, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty 
(``AD'') order on solid urea from Ukraine pursuant to section 751(c) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). See Initiation of 
Five-year (Sunset) Reviews, 69 FR 58890 (October 1, 2004). On the basis 
of a notice of intent to participate, an adequate substantive response 
filed on behalf of the domestic interested parties, and inadequate 
response from respondent interested parties (in this case, no 
response), the Department conducted an expedited sunset review of this 
order pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and section 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(B) of the Department's regulations. As a result of 
this sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of the AD 
order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the 
levels indicated in the ``Final Results of Review'' section of this
