SUMMARY: On April 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty order on brass sheet and strip from Germany. On the basis of the notice of intent to participate, adequate substantive responses and rebuttal comments filed on behalf of the domestic and respondent interested parties, the Department is conducting a full sunset review of the antidumping duty order pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’) and section 351.218(e)(2)(i) of the Department’s regulations. As a result of this sunset review, the Department preliminarily 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 ‘‘Preliminary Results of Review.’’ EFFECTIVE DATE: October 28, 2005. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Audrey R. Twyman, Brandon Farlander, or David Goldberger, AD/CVD Operations, Office 1, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street & Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC, 20230; telephone: 202–482–3534, 202–482– 0182, and 202–482–4136, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On April 1, 2005, the Department published its notice of initiation of the second sunset review of the antidumping duty order on brass sheet and strip from Germany, in accordance with section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-year (‘‘Sunset’’) Reviews, 70 FR 16800 (April 1, 2005) (‘‘Notice of Initiation’’). The Department received Notices of Intent to Participate on behalf of Heyco VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:15 Oct 27, 2005 Jkt 208001 Metals, Inc., Olin Corporation - Brass Group, Outokumpu American Brass, PMX Industries, Inc., Revere Copper Products, Inc., Scott Brass, International Association of Machinist and Aerospace Workers, United Auto Workers (Local 2367 and Local 1024), and United Steelworkers of America AFL–CIO/CLC (collectively ‘‘the domestic interested parties’’), within the deadline specified in section 351.218(d)(1)(i) of the Department’s regulations (‘‘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. The Department received a complete substantive response to the notice of initiation from the domestic interested parties within the 30-day deadline specified in the Department’s regulations under section 351.218(d)(3)(i). The Department received a complete substantive response from respondent interested parties, Wieland–Werke AG (‘‘Wieland’’), Prymetall Gmbh & Co. KG (‘‘Prymetall’’), and Schwermetall Halbzeugwerk GmbH & Co. KG (‘‘Schwermetall’’) (collectively ‘‘the respondent interested parties’’), within the deadline specified in section 351.218(d)(3)(i) of the Department’s regulations. On May 4, 2005, the Department received a request from domestic interested parties for an extension of the deadline for filing rebuttal comments to the substantive response of the respondent interested parties. Pursuant to section 351.302(b) of the Department’s regulations, domestic and respondent parties were granted an extension to file rebuttal comments to the substantive responses until May 13, 2005. On May 17, 2005, the Department received an objection to domestic interested parties’ rebuttal comments. On May 24, 2005, the Department initially determined that respondent interested parties did not account for more than 50 percent of exports by volume of the subject merchandise and, therefore, did not submit an adequate substantive response to the Department’s Notice of Initiation. See Memorandum to Ronald Lorentzen, Acting Director, Office of Policy, from Kelly Parkhill entitled, ‘‘Adequacy Determination: Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Brass Sheet and Strip from Germany,’’ (May 24, 2005). On June 13, 2005, the Department extended the deadline for comments and rebuttals on its adequacy PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62093 determination to June 20 and June 27 respectively. On June 10 and 20, 2005, the Department received comments from domestic interested parties concerning the Department’s adequacy determination. On June 20, 2005, the Department received comments from respondent interested parties concerning the Department’s adequacy determination. On June 27, 2005, the Department received rebuttal comments from domestic interested parties concerning the Department’s adequacy determination. On July 27, 2005, the Department published a notice of extension of time limits for its final results of expedited review until on or about October 18, 2005. See Brass Sheet and Strip from Germany, Brazil, and France: Extension of Final Results of Expedited Sunset Reviews of the Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders, 70 FR 43395 (July 27, 2005). Section 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(A) of the Department’s regulations provides that the Secretary normally will conclude that respondent interested parties have provided adequate response to a notice of initiation where the Department receives complete substantive responses from respondent interested parties accounting on average for more than 50 percent, by volume, or value basis, if appropriate, of the total exports of the subject merchandise to the United States over the five calendar years preceding the year of publication of the notice of initiation. On August 12, 2005, the Department reversed its initial adequacy determination and found that the respondent interested parties accounted for more than 50 percent of exports by volume of the subject merchandise from Germany to the United States. See Memorandum to Barbara E. Tillman, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, from Susan H. Kuhbach entitled, ‘‘Adequacy Determination in Antidumping Duty Sunset Review of Brass Sheet and Strip from Germany,’’ (August 12, 2005). In accordance with section 351.218(e)(2)(i) of the Department’s regulations, the Department determined to conduct a full sunset review of this antidumping duty order. The final results in the full sunset review of this antidumping duty order are scheduled on or before February 27, 2006. Scope of the Order The product covered by this order is brass sheet and strip, other than leaded and tinned. The chemical composition of the covered product is currently defined in the Copper Development E:\FR\FM\28OCN1.SGM 28OCN1
