Revocation of Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Cut-To-Length 
Carbon-Quality Steel Plate from France

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: Pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act''), the International Trade Commission (``ITC''), in 
its sunset review, determined that revocation of the antidumping duty 
(``AD'') order on certain cut-to-length carbon-quality steel plate 
(``CTL Plate'') from France would not be likely to lead to continuation 
or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States 
within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Cut-to-Length Carbon-Quality 
Steel Plate from France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, and Korea, 70 
FR 71331 (November 28, 2005) (``ITC Determination''). Therefore, 
pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(1)(iii), 
the Department is revoking the AD order on CTL Plate from France.

EFFECTIVE DATE: February 10, 2005.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 10, 2000, the Department published its AD order and 
final amended determination on CTL Plate from France. See Notice of 
Amendment of Final Determinations of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and 
Antidumping Duty Orders: Certain Cut-To- Length Carbon-Quality Steel 
Plate Products From France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, and the 
Republic of Korea, 65 FR 6585 (February 10, 2000). In the amended final 
determination the Department found a margin of 10.41 percent for Usinor 
S.A. and for ``all other'' manufacturers/producers/exporters of CTL 
Plate from France.
    On January 3, 2005, the Department initiated, and the ITC 
instituted, sunset reviews of the AD order on CTL Plate from France. 
See Initiation of Five-year (Sunset) Reviews, 70 FR 75 (January 3, 
2005). As a result of its review, the Department found that revocation 
of the AD order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of 
dumping, and notified the ITC of the dumping rate likely to prevail if 
the AD order were revoked. See Certain Cut-To-Length Carbon-Quality 
Steel Plate from France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, and the 
Republic of Korea; Final Results of the Expedited Sunset Reviews of the 
Antidumping Duty Orders, 70 FR 45655 (August 8, 2005).
    On November 21, 2005, the ITC determined, pursuant to section 
751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the AD order on CTL Plate from 
France would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of 
material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably 
foreseeable time. See ITC Determination and USITC Publication 3816 
(November 2005), entitled Cut-to-Length Carbon-Quality Steel Plate From
