Download as PDF cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 15384 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 59 / Tuesday, March 28, 2006 / Notices Final Results of Review and Revocation of the Countervailing Duty Order, in Whole Pursuant to section 751(d)(1) of the 1930 Tariff Act, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.222(g), the Department may revoke an antidumping or CVD order, in whole or in part, based on a review under section 751(b) of the Act (i.e., a changed circumstances review). Section 751(b)(1) of the Act requires a changed circumstances review to be conducted upon receipt of a request that shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review. Section 782(h)(2) of the Act gives the Department the authority to revoke an order if producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product have expressed a lack of interest in the continuation of the order. Section 351.222(g) of the Department’s regulations provides that the Department will conduct a changed circumstances administrative review under 19 CFR 351.216, and may revoke an order (in whole or in part), if it concludes that (i) producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product to which the order pertains have expressed a lack of interest in the relief provided by the order, in whole or in part, or (ii) other changed circumstances sufficient to warrant revocation exist. The Department has interpreted ‘‘substantially all’’ production normally to mean at least 85 percent of domestic production of the like product. See Certain Tin Mill Products From Japan: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review, 66 FR 52109 (October 12, 2001). As noted above and in the Preliminary Results, Allegheny Ludlum Corporation and AK Steel Corporation requested this changed circumstances review on the basis that they are no longer interested in maintaining the CVD order or in the imposition of CVD duties on the subject merchandise. Also, the parties to the litigation concerning these entries have agreed to withdraw their appeals. Because the Department did not receive any comments in response to the Initiation Notice or the Preliminary Results opposing this changed circumstances review or the preliminary decision to revoke, in whole, the CVD order effective November 17, 1998, we find that producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product to which this order pertains lack interest in the relief provided by the order. In accordance with sections 751(b), 751(d), and 782(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216 and 351.222(g), the Department determines that there is a reasonable basis to find VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:56 Mar 27, 2006 Jkt 208001 that changed circumstances exist sufficient to warrant revocation of the order. Therefore, the Department is revoking the CVD order on SSSS from Italy, in whole, with regard to the products described above under the ‘‘Scope of the Order’’ section. Instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection In accordance with 19 CFR 351.222(g), upon dismissal by the court of all pending appeals involving the subject merchandise as described above under the ‘‘Scope of the Order’’ section, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to liquidate without regard to countervailing duties, all unliquidated entries of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after November 17, 1998, i.e., the publication date of the Department’s Preliminary Determination in the underlying investigation. In accordance with section 778 of the Act, we will also instruct CBP to pay interest on and refunded CVD deposits with respect to the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 6, 1999, the date of publication in the Federal Register of the CVD order.
