The Department conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of this order. As a result of this sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping. The dumping margins are identified in the Final Results of Review section of this notice. EFFECTIVE DATE: October 6, 2005.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: On March 1, 2005, the Department published the notice of initiation of the second sunset review of the antidumping duty order covering internal–combustion forklift trucks from Japan pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-year (Sunset) Reviews, 70 FR 9919 (March 1, 2005). On May 16, 2005, the Department extended the period of time for making its determination by 90 days pursuant to section 751(c)(5)(B) of the Act. See Extension of Time Limits for the Final Results of Sunset Reviews of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders, 70 FR 25808 (May 16, 2005). E:\FR\FM\06OCN1.SGM 06OCN1 58374 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 193 / Thursday, October 6, 2005 / Notices The Department received the Notice of Intent to Participate from NACCO Materials Handling Group, Inc. (NMHG), a domestic interested party, within the deadline specified in section 351.218(d)(1)(i) of the Department’s regulations (Sunset Regulations). NMHG claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as a manufacturer of the domestic like product in the United States. We received complete substantive responses from NMHG within the 30day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). We received no responses from the respondent interested parties. As a result, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of this order. Scope of the Order The products covered by this order are certain internal–combustion, industrial forklift trucks, with lifting capacity of 2,000 to 15,000 lbs. Imports of these products were classified under item numbers 692.4025, 692.4030, and 692.4070 of the Tariff Schedules of the United States Annotated (TSUSA) and are currently classifiable under Harmonized System (HTSUS) item numbers 8427.20.00, 8427.90.00, and 8431.20.00. Although the HTSUS item numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description remains dispositive. The products covered by this order are further described as follows: Assembled, not assembled, and less than complete, finished and not finished, operator–riding forklift trucks powered by gasoline, propane, or diesel fuel internal–combustion engines of off– the-highway types used in factories, warehouses, or transportation terminals for short–distance transport, towing, or handling of articles. Less than complete forklift trucks are defined as imports which include a frame by itself or a frame assembled with one or more component parts. Component parts of the subject forklift trucks which are not assembled with a frame are not covered by this order. Products not covered by this order are genuinely used forklifts. For the purposes of this antidumping duty order, we consider any forklift to be used if, at the time of entry into the United States, the importer can demonstrate to the satisfaction of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that the forklift was manufactured in a calendar year at least three years prior to the year of entry into the United States. The importer must show documentation from industrial VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:52 Oct 05, 2005 Jkt 208001 publications that reconcile the serial number and year of manufacture of the forklift. If the calendar year of manufacture is at least three years prior to its year of entry into the United States, it will not be subject to the suspension of liquidation or any assessment of antidumping duties. For example, if a forklift is entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption in June 1988 and if the importer demonstrates through industrial publications that the forklift was manufactured in or before calendar year 1985, that forklift will not be covered by this order.

Tillman, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, to Holly A. Kuga, Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated September 27, 2005, which is hereby adopted by this notice.

on internal-combustion forklift trucks from Japan pursuant to section 
751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). The 
Department conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of this 
order. As a result of this sunset review, the Department finds that 
revocation of the antidumping duty order would be likely to lead to 
continuation or recurrence of dumping. The dumping margins are 
identified in the Final Results of Review section of this notice.

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 6, 2005.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David Layton or David Goldberger, AD/
CVD Operations, Office 1, Import Administration, International Trade

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background:

    On March 1, 2005, the Department published the notice of initiation 
of the second sunset review of the antidumping duty order covering 
internal-combustion forklift trucks from Japan pursuant to section 
751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-year (Sunset) Reviews, 70 FR 
9919 (March 1, 2005). On May 16, 2005, the Department extended the

The Department received the Notice of Intent to Participate from NACCO 
Materials Handling Group, Inc. (NMHG), a domestic interested party, 
within the deadline specified in section 351.218(d)(1)(i) of the 
Department's regulations (Sunset Regulations). NMHG claimed interested 
party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as a manufacturer of 
the domestic like product in the United States.
    We received complete substantive responses from NMHG within the 30-
day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). We received no 
responses from the respondent interested parties. As a result, pursuant 
to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), 
the Department conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of this 
order.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this order are certain internal-combustion, 
industrial forklift trucks, with lifting capacity of 2,000 to 15,000 
lbs. Imports of these products were classified under item numbers 
692.4025, 692.4030, and 692.4070 of the Tariff Schedules of the United 
States Annotated (TSUSA) and are currently classifiable under 
Harmonized System (HTSUS) item numbers 8427.20.00, 8427.90.00, and 
8431.20.00. Although the HTSUS item numbers are provided for 
convenience and customs purposes, the written description remains 
dispositive.
    The products covered by this order are further described as 
follows: Assembled, not assembled, and less than complete, finished and 
not finished, operator-riding forklift trucks powered by gasoline, 
propane, or diesel fuel internal-combustion engines of off-the-highway 
types used in factories, warehouses, or transportation terminals for 
short-distance transport, towing, or handling of articles. Less than 
complete forklift trucks are defined as imports which include a frame 
by itself or a frame assembled with one or more component parts. 
Component parts of the subject forklift trucks which are not assembled 
with a frame are not covered by this order.
    Products not covered by this order are genuinely used forklifts. 
For the purposes of this antidumping duty order, we consider any 
forklift to be used if, at the time of entry into the United States, 
the importer can demonstrate to the satisfaction of the U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection (CBP) that the forklift was manufactured in a 
calendar year at least three years prior to the year of entry into the 
United States. The importer must show documentation from industrial 
publications that reconcile the serial number and year of manufacture 
of the forklift. If the calendar year of manufacture is at least three 
years prior to its year of entry into the United States, it will not be 
subject to the suspension of liquidation or any assessment of 
antidumping duties. For example, if a forklift is entered or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption in June 1988 and if the importer 
demonstrates through industrial publications that the forklift was 
manufactured in or before calendar year 1985, that forklift will not be 
covered by this order.

Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated September 27, 
2005, which is hereby adopted by this notice. The issues discussed in
