Download as PDF 6272 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 25 / Tuesday, February 7, 2006 / Notices prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred, and in the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Revocation of the Order On July 12, 2005, the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) informed the Department that the revocation of the antidumping duty orders on stainless steel sheet and strip from France would not likely lead to continuation of recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. Accordingly, the Department revoked this antidumping duty order effective July 27, 2004. Therefore, cash deposits of estimated antidumping duties are no longer required. We have instructed CBP to terminate suspension of liquidation and to liquidate all entries of subject merchandise that were suspended on or after July 27, 2004, without regard to antidumping duties. See Certain Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils from France and the United Kingdom; Final Results of Sunset Reviews and Revocation of Antidumping Duty Order, 70 FR 44894 (August 4, 2005).

Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested.
