The Department conducted expedited (120– day) sunset reviews of these orders.

The domestic interested parties claimed interested party status under sections 771(9)(C) and (D) of the Act, as manufacturers of a domestic–like product in the United States, and unions whose workers are engaged in the production of a domestic–like product in the United States. We received complete substantive responses from the domestic interested parties within the 30–day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). We received no responses from respondent interested parties with respect to any of the orders covered by these sunset reviews. As a result, pursuant to section 751(c)(4)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department conducted expedited (120–day) sunset reviews of these orders for Korea and Taiwan. Scope of the Orders The merchandise subject to these antidumping orders is cooking ware from Korea and Taiwan. The subject merchandise is all non–electric cooking ware of stainless steel which may have one or more layers of aluminum, copper or carbon steel for more even heat distribution. The subject merchandise includes skillets, frying pans, omelette pans, saucepans, double boilers, stock pots, dutch ovens, casseroles, steamers, and other stainless steel vessels, all for cooking on stove top burners, except tea kettles and fish poachers. Excluded from the scope of the orders are stainless steel oven ware and stainless steel kitchen ware. The subject merchandise is currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) item numbers 7323.93.00 and 9604.00.00. The HTSUS item numbers are provided for convenience and Customs purposes only. The written description remains dispositive. The Department has issued several scope clarifications for these orders. The Department found that ‘‘universal pan lids’’ are not within the scope of the orders (57 FR 57420 (December 4, 1992)) and Max Burton’s StoveTop Smoker is within the scope of the orders (60 FR 36782 (July 18, 1995)). Certain stainless steel pasta and steamer inserts (63 FR 41545 (August 4, 1998)), certain stainless steel eight–cup coffee percolators (58 FR 11209, February 24, 1993), and certain stainless steel stock pots and covers are within the scope of E:\FR\FM\27SEN1.SGM 27SEN1 56444 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 186 / Tuesday, September 27, 2005 / Notices the orders (57 FR 57420 (December 4, 1992)).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On March 1, 2005, the Department published the notice of initiation 
of the second sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on cooking 
ware from Korea and Taiwan pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See 
Initiation of Five-Year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 70 FR 9919 (March 1, 
2005). The Department received the Notice of Intent to Participate from 
Regal Ware, Inc.; Vita Craft Corporation; and Paper Allied Industrial 
Chemical & Energy Workers (Local 7-0850) (collectively ``the domestic 
interested parties''), within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(i) (``Sunset Regulations''). The domestic interested 
parties claimed interested party status under sections 771(9)(C) and 
(D) of the Act, as manufacturers of a domestic-like product in the 
United States, and unions whose workers are engaged in the production 
of a domestic-like product in the United States.
    We received complete substantive responses from the domestic 
interested parties within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(3)(i). We received no responses from respondent interested 
parties with respect to any of the orders covered by these sunset 
reviews. As a result, pursuant to section 751(c)(4)(A) of the Act and 
19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department conducted expedited 
(120-day) sunset reviews of these orders for Korea and Taiwan.

Scope of the Orders

    The merchandise subject to these antidumping orders is cooking ware 
from Korea and Taiwan. The subject merchandise is all non-electric

saucepans, double boilers, stock pots, dutch ovens, casseroles, 
steamers, and other stainless steel vessels, all for cooking on stove 
top burners, except tea kettles and fish poachers. Excluded from the 
scope of the orders are stainless steel oven ware and stainless steel 
kitchen ware. The subject merchandise is currently classifiable under 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') item 
numbers 7323.93.00 and 9604.00.00. The HTSUS item numbers are provided

    The Department has issued several scope clarifications for these

Burton's StoveTop Smoker is within the scope of the orders (60 FR 36782

with respect to certain stainless steel camping ware: (1) made of 
single-ply stainless steel having a thickness no greater than 6.0 
millimeters; and (2) consisting of 1.0, 1.5, and 2.0 quart saucepans
