Background

    On March 1, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
initiated the second sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on 
stainless steel bar (SSB) from Brazil, India, Japan, and Spain pursuant 
to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). See 
Initiation of Five-year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 71 FR 10476 (March 1, 
2006). The Department received a notice of intent to participate from 
Carpenter Technology Corp., Crucible Specialty Metals Division of 
Crucible Materials Corp., Electralloy Corp., North American Stainless, 
Universal Stainless & Alloy Products, Inc., and Valbruna Slater 
Stainless, Inc. (collectively the domestic interested parties), within 
the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i) pertaining to sunset 
reviews. The domestic interested parties claimed interested-party 
status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as manufacturers of a 
domestic like product in the United States. We received complete 
substantive responses from the domestic interested parties within the 
30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). We received no 
responses from the respondent interested parties. As a result, pursuant 
to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), 
the Department has conducted expedited (120-day) sunset reviews of 
these orders.

Scope of the Orders

    Imports covered by these orders are shipments of SSB. SSB means 
articles of stainless steel in straight lengths that have been either 
hot-rolled, forged, turned, cold-drawn, cold-rolled or otherwise cold-
finished, or ground, having a uniform solid cross section along their 
whole length in the shape of

circles, segments of circles, ovals, rectangles (including squares), 
triangles, hexagons, octagons, or other convex polygons. SSB includes 
cold-finished SSBs that are turned or ground in straight lengths, 
whether produced from hot-rolled bar or from straightened and cut rod 
or wire, and reinforcing bars that have indentations, ribs, grooves, or 
other deformations produced during the rolling process.
    Except as specified above, the term does not include stainless 
steel semi-finished products, cut length flat-rolled products (i.e., 
cut length rolled products which if less than 4.75 mm in thickness have 
a width measuring at least 10 times the thickness, or if 4.75 mm or 
more in thickness having a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at 
least twice the thickness), wire (i.e., cold-formed products in coils, 
of any uniform solid cross section along their whole length, which do 
not conform to the definition of flat-rolled products), and angles, 
shapes, and sections.
    The SSB subject to these orders is currently classifiable under 
subheadings 7222.11.00.05, 7222.11.00.50, 7222.19.00.05, 7222.19.00.50,
