Inc. (``petitioner''). On August 29, 2005, the Department published the 
initiation of an administrative review of IRCT covering the period July 
1, 2004, through June 30, 2005. See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation 
in Part, 70 FR 51009 (August 29, 2005). This review covers imports of
