amended (``the Act''). See ITC Investigation Nos. 731-TA-856 (Review), 
Ammonium Nitrate from Russia, 70 FR 16517 (March 31, 2005) and 
Initiation of Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews, 70 FR 16800 (April 1, 2005). 
As a result of its review, pursuant to sections 751(c) and 752 of the 
Act, the Department determined that termination of the suspended 
antidumping duty investigation on ammonium nitrate from Russia would 
likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and notified the 
ITC of the magnitude of the margin likely to prevail should the 
Suspension Agreement be terminated. See Final Results of Five-Year 
Sunset Review of Suspended Antidumping Duty Investigation on Ammonium 
Nitrate from the Russian Federation, 71 FR 11177 (March 6, 2006).
    On March 30, 2006, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, the ITC 
determined that termination of the suspended investigation on ammonium 
nitrate from Russia would be likely to lead to continuation or 
recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States
