Scope of the Orders The merchandise covered by these orders is solid urea, a high–nitrogen content fertilizer which is produced by reacting ammonia with carbon dioxide. The product is currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedules of the United States Annotated (‘‘HTS’’) item 3102.10.00.00.

The written description remains dispositive as to the scope of the product coverage. Determination As a result of the determinations by the Department and the Commission that revocation of these antidumping duty orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act, the Department hereby orders the continuation of the antidumping duty orders on solid urea from Russia and Ukraine. The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to continue to collect antidumping duty deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise. The effective date of the continuation for these orders is the date of publication in the Federal Register of this Notice of Continuation. Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act, the Department intends to initiate the next five-year review of these antidumping orders not later than December 2010. These sunset reviews and this Notice of Continuation are in accordance with section 751(c) of the Act and published pursuant to 777(i) of the Act. Dated: December 23, 2005. Stephen J.
