ACTION: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Administrative Reviews. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) has received requests to conduct administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with February anniversary dates. In accordance with the Department’s regulations, we are initiating those administrative reviews. The Department also received requests to defer the initiation of an administrative review for one antidumping duty order and one countervailing duty order. EFFECTIVE DATE: April 5, 2006. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sheila E. Forbes, Office of AD/CVD Operations, Office 4, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20230, telephone: (202) 482–4697. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Department has received timely requests, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(2004), for administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with February anniversary dates. With respect to the antidumping duty orders on Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil, Ecuador, India, Thailand, the People’s Republic of China and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, the initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review for these cases will be published in a separate initiation notice. The Department also received timely requests in accordance with 19 PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17077 CFR 351.213 (c) from Eurodif S.A. (Eurodif), the sole producer/exporter for which a review was requested, to defer for one year the initiation of the February 1, 2005 through January 31,2006 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on Low Enriched Uranium from France (A–427– 818) and the January 1, 2005 through December 31, 2005 administrative review of the countervailing duty order on Low Enriched Uranium from France (C–427–819). In its requests, Eurodif stated that once the remands, pursuant to the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit decision that SWU contracts constitute the sale of services not goods (Eurodif S.A. v. United States, 423 F.3d 1275 (Fed. Cir. 2005)), are finalized, there will be no need to conduct these reviews. The petitioner, USEC and United States Enrichment Corporation (collectively, ‘‘USEC’’), filed a timely response to Eurodif’s deferral requests in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213 (c)(1)(ii) and 351.213 (c)(2). USEC stated that, although it disagreed with the reasoning for the deferrals set forth by Eurodif, it did not object to the deferrals on the grounds that such deferrals would give the parties, including the Department, more time to focus on the appeals. No other party filed comments or objections pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213 (c)(1)(ii). Although the Department disagrees with the reasoning set forth in Eurodif’s requests for deferral, we find that these deferrals will conserve resources and permit all of the parties to focus on the litigation issues. Accordingly, we have decided to defer the initiation of these administrative reviews for one year in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213 (c)(3). Initiation of Reviews In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we are initiating administrative reviews of the following antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings. We intend to issue the final results of these reviews not later than February 28, 2007. Also, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(c), we are deferring for one year the initiation of the February 1, 2005 through January 31, 2006 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on Low Enriched Uranium from France (A–427– 818) and the January 1, 2005 through December 31, 2005 administrative review of the countervailing duty order on Low Enriched Uranium from France (C–427–819) with respect to one producer/exporter.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On March 31 and April 1, 2005, respectively, the ITC instituted, and the Department initiated, a sunset review of the Agreement Suspending the Antidumping Duty Investigation of Solid Fertilizer Grade Ammonium Nitrate from the Russian Federation (‘‘Suspension Agreement’’), pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 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 within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Ammonium Nitrate from Russia, 71 FR 16177 (March 30, 2006) and USITC Publication 3844 (March 2006), titled Ammonium Nitrate From Russia (Investigation No. 731–TA–856 (Review)). Therefore, pursuant to Section 351.218(f)(4) of the Department’s regulations, the Department is publishing this notice of the continuation of the suspended investigation on ammonium nitrate from Russia. Scope The products covered by the sunset review of the suspended antidumping duty investigation on ammonium nitrate from Russia include solid, fertilizer PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 grade ammonium nitrate products, whether prilled, granular or in other solid form, with or without additives or coating, and with a bulk density equal to or greater than 53 pounds per cubic foot. Specifically excluded from this scope is solid ammonium nitrate with a bulk density less than 53 pounds per cubic foot (commonly referred to as industrial or explosive grade ammonium nitrate). The merchandise subject to this review is classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) at subheading 3102.30.00.00. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise within the scope of this sunset review is dispositive. Determination As a result of the determinations by the Department and the ITC that termination of the suspended investigation would likely 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 Suspension Agreement. The effective date of continuation of this suspended investigation will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of this Notice of Continuation. Pursuant to sections 751(c)(2) and 751(c)(6) of the Act, the Department intends to initiate the next five–year sunset review of this Suspension Agreement not later than March 2011.

requests to conduct administrative reviews of various antidumping and 
countervailing duty orders and findings with February anniversary 
dates. In accordance with the Department's regulations, we are 
initiating those administrative reviews. The Department also received

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Department has received timely requests, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.213(b)(2004), for administrative reviews of various antidumping 
and countervailing duty orders and findings with February anniversary 
dates. With respect to the antidumping duty orders on Frozen Warmwater 
Shrimp from Brazil, Ecuador, India, Thailand, the People's Republic of 
China and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, the initiation of the 
antidumping duty administrative review for these cases will be 
published in a separate initiation notice. The Department also received 
timely requests in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213 (c) from Eurodif S.A. 
(Eurodif), the sole producer/exporter for which a review was requested, 
to defer for one year the initiation of the February 1, 2005 through 
January 31,2006 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
Low Enriched Uranium from France (A-427-818) and the January 1, 2005 
through December 31, 2005 administrative review of the countervailing 
duty order on Low Enriched Uranium from France (C-427-819). In its 
requests, Eurodif stated that once the remands, pursuant to the Court 
of Appeals for the Federal Circuit decision that SWU contracts 
constitute the sale of services not goods (Eurodif S.A. v. United 
States, 423 F.3d 1275 (Fed. Cir. 2005)), are finalized, there will be 
no need to conduct these reviews. The petitioner, USEC and United 
States Enrichment Corporation (collectively, ``USEC''), filed a timely 
response to Eurodif's deferral requests in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.213 (c)(1)(ii) and 351.213 (c)(2). USEC stated that, although it 
disagreed with the reasoning for the deferrals set forth by Eurodif, it 
did not object to the deferrals on the grounds that such deferrals 
would give the parties, including the Department, more time to focus on 
the appeals. No other party filed comments or objections pursuant to 19 
CFR 351.213 (c)(1)(ii). Although the Department disagrees with the 
reasoning set forth in Eurodif's requests for deferral, we find that 
these deferrals will conserve resources and permit all of the parties 
to focus on the litigation issues. Accordingly, we have decided to 
defer the initiation of these administrative reviews for one year in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.213 (c)(3).

Initiation of Reviews

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we are initiating 
administrative reviews of the following antidumping and countervailing 
duty orders and findings. We intend to issue the final results of these 
reviews not later than February 28, 2007. Also, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.213(c), we are deferring for one year the initiation of the 
February 1, 2005 through January 31, 2006 administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on Low Enriched Uranium from France (A-427-818) 
and the January 1, 2005 through December 31, 2005 administrative review 
of the countervailing duty order on Low Enriched Uranium from France 
(C-427-819) with respect to one producer/exporter.
