Certain Iron Construction Castings from Canada; Five-year 
(``Sunset'') Review of Antidumping Duty Order; Final Results

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: Summary: On October 1, 2004, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty order 
on certain iron construction castings (``iron castings'') from Canada. 
On the basis of the notice of intent to participate, and an adequate 
substantive response filed on behalf of the domestic interested parties 
and an inadequate response from respondent interested parties, the 
Department conducted an expedited sunset review. As a result of this 
review, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty 
order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the 
levels listed below in the section entitled ``Final Results of 
Review.''

EFFECTIVE DATE: May 10, 2005.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Martha V. Douthit, Office of Policy, 
Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC, 20230; telephone: (202) 482-5050.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On October 1, 2004, the Department initiated a sunset review of the 
antidumping duty order on iron castings from Canada 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). The Department received a Notice of Intent to Participate on 
behalf of Deeter Foundry, Inc., East Jordan Iron Works, Inc., LeBaron 
Foundry, Inc., Leed Foundry, Inc., Municipal Castings, Inc., Neenah 
Foundry Company, Tyler Pipe Company, and U.S. Foundry &

Manufacturing Co. (collectively, ``domestic interested parties''), 
within the deadline specified in section 351.218(d)(1)(i) of the 
Department's regulations. Domestic interested parties claimed 
interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as U.S. 
producers of the subject merchandise. The Department notes that Tyler 
Pipe is a U.S. producer of light castings only and is not an interested 
party in this proceeding.
    The Department received a complete response from the domestic 
interested parties within the deadline specified in the Department's 
regulations under section 351.218(d)(3)(i). However, the Department 
received no responses from respondent interested parties as required in 
section 351.218(d)(3)(i) of the Department's regulations. As a result, 
the Department conducted an expedited sunset review pursuant to section 
751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and section 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2) of the 
Department's regulations.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the antidumping duty order consists of 
certain iron construction castings from Canada, limited to manhole 
covers, rings, and frames, catch basin grates and frames, clean-out 
covers and frames used for drainage or access purposes for public 
utility, water and sanitary systems, classifiable as ``heavy'' castings 
under Harmonized Tariff Schedule (``HTS'') item number 7325.10.0010. 
These articles must be of cast iron, not alloyed, and not malleable.
    On September 23, 1998, the Department issued final results of a 
changed circumstances review, in which the Department revoked the order 
with respect to ``light'' castings. As a result, only one HTS item 
number applies to this order. That number, HTS item number 7325.10.000, 
is provided for convenience and customs purposes only. The written 
description remains dispositive.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in this case are addressed in the ``Issues and 
Decision Memorandum'' (``Decision Memo'') from Ronald K. Lorentzen, 
Acting Director, Office of Policy, Import Administration, to Joseph A. 
Spetrini, Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated 
May 2, 2005, which is hereby adopted by this notice. The issues 
discussed in the Decision Memo include the likelihood of continuation 
or recurrence of dumping and the magnitude of the margin likely to 
prevail if the order were revoked. Parties can find a complete 
discussion of all issues raised in this sunset review and the 
corresponding recommendations in this public memo, which is on file in 
room B-099 of the main Department Building.
    In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memo can be

heading ``May 2005.'' The paper copy and electronic version of the 
Decision Memo are identical in content.

Final Results of Review

    We determine that revocation of the antidumping duty order on iron 
castings from Canada would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of 
dumping at the following percentage weighted-average margins:
