SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES AGENCY: Background On February 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published in the Federal Register an antidumping duty order covering certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). See Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the People’s Republic of China, 70 FR 5149 (February 1, 2005). The Department received a timely request from Zhanjiang Regal Integrated Marine Resources Co., Ltd. (‘‘Regal’’), in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(c), for a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the PRC, which has a February annual anniversary month and an August semi– annual anniversary month. On September 30, 2005, the Department initiated a review with respect to Regal. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:19 Mar 27, 2006 Jkt 208001 See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of New Shipper Review, 70 FR 58679 (October 7, 2005). The Department has issued its antidumping duty questionnaire and supplemental questionnaires to Regal. The deadline for completion of the preliminary results is currently March 29, 2006. Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) require the Department to issue the preliminary results of a new shipper review within 180 days after the date on which the new shipper review was initiated and final results of a review within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results were issued. The Department may, however, extend the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of a new shipper review to 300 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated. See 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2), the Department determines that this review is extraordinarily complicated. Specifically, the Department requires additional time to analyze all questionnaire responses and to conduct verification of the responses submitted, as well as to examine whether Regal’s U.S. sale was made on a bona fide basis. Additionally, there are complicated issues surrounding the Department’s calculation of normal value, particularly with respect to the valuation of shrimp farming inputs. Based on the timing and complexity of the case, the preliminary results of this new shipper review cannot be completed within the statutory time limit of 180 days. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for the completion of the preliminary results by 90 days to June 27, 2006, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). The final results, in turn, will be due 90 days after the date of issuance of the preliminary results, unless extended. We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1), 751(a)(2)(B), and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: March 22, 2006. Stephen J.

Grain-Oriented Electrical Steel From Italy and Japan: Final 
Results of Sunset Reviews and Revocation of Orders

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On February 1, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated the sunset reviews of the antidumping duty 
(``AD'') orders on grain-oriented electrical steel (``GOES'') from 
Italy and Japan and of the countervailing duty (``CVD'') order on GOES 
from Italy. (See 70 FR 5243). Because the domestic interested parties 
did not participate in these sunset reviews, the Department is revoking 
these AD and CVD orders.

EFFECTIVE DATE: March 14, 2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Darla Brown or Brandon Farlander, 
Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW, 
Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-2849 or (202) 482-0182, 
respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On June 7, June 10, and August 12, 1994, respectively, the 
Department issued the CVD order on GOES from Italy (59 FR 29414) and 
the AD orders on GOES from Japan (59 FR 29984) and Italy (59 FR 41431). 
On December 1, 1999, the Department initiated sunset reviews on these 
orders and later published its notice of continuation of the AD and CVD 
orders. See Continuation of Antidumping Duty Orders and Countervailing 
Duty Order: Grain-Oriented Silicon Electrical Steel From Italy and 
Japan, 66 FR 14889 (March 14, 2001) (``GOES Continuation''). On 
February 1, 2006, the Department initiated the second sunset reviews of 
these orders.
    We did not receive a notice of intent to participate from domestic 
interested parties in any of these sunset reviews by the deadline 
dates. See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(A). As a result, the Department 
determined that no domestic interested party intends to participate in 
these sunset reviews, and on February 21, 2006, we notified the 
International Trade Commission, in writing, that we intended to issue 
final determinations revoking these AD and CVD orders. See 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(2).

[[Page 15377]]

Scope of the Orders

    The merchandise subject to these orders includes GOES, which is a 
flat-rolled alloy steel product containing by weight at least 0.6 
percent of silicon, not more than 0.08 percent of carbon, not more than 
1.0 percent of aluminum, and no other element in an amount that would 
give the steel the characteristics of another alloy steel, of a 
thickness of no more than 0.56 millimeters, in coils of any width, or 
in straight lengths which are of a width measuring at least 10 times 
the thickness. The products covered by these orders are provided for 
under the following item numbers of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of 
the United States (``HTSUS''): 7225.10.0030, 7226.10.1030, 
7226.10.5015, and 7226.10.5065. Although the HTSUS subheadings are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description 
of the scope of these orders is dispositive.

Determination to Revoke

    Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act'') and 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(3), if no 
domestic interested party files a notice of intent to participate, the 
Department shall, within 90 days after the initiation of the review, 
issue a final determination revoking the order. Because the domestic 
interested parties did not file a notice of intent to participate in 
these sunset reviews, the Department finds that no domestic interested 
party is participating in these sunset reviews. Therefore, consistent 
with 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i) and section 751(c)(6)(A)(iii) of the Act, 
we are revoking these AD and CVD orders effective March 14, 2006, the 
fifth anniversary of the date the Department published the continuation 
of the AD and CVD orders. (See GOES Continuation.)

Effective Date of Revocation

    Pursuant to sections 751(c)(3)(A) and 751(c)(6)(A)(iii) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i), the Department will instruct U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection to terminate the suspension of liquidation of the 
merchandise subject to these orders entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, on or after March 14, 2006. Entries of subject merchandise 
prior to the effective date of revocation will continue to be subject 
to suspension of liquidation and AD and CVD deposit requirements. The 
Department will complete any pending administrative reviews of these 
orders and will conduct administrative reviews of subject merchandise 
entered prior to the effective date of revocation in response to 
appropriately filed requests for review.
    These five-year (sunset) reviews and notice are issued and 
published in accordance with sections 751(c) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: March 22, 2006.
