SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: wood encasing one–and-one half inches of sharpened lead on one end and a rubber eraser on the other end. Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Scope of the Order Imports covered by this order are shipments of certain cased pencils of any shape or dimension (except as noted below) which are writing and/or drawing instruments that feature cores of graphite or other materials, encased in wood and/or man–made materials, whether or not decorated and whether or not tipped (e.g., with erasers, etc.) in any fashion, and either sharpened or unsharpened. The pencils subject to the order are currently classifiable under subheading 9609.10.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Specifically excluded from the scope of the order are mechanical pencils, cosmetic pencils, pens, non–cased crayons (wax), pastels, charcoals, chalks, and pencils produced under U.S. patent number 6,217,242, from paper infused with scents by the means covered in the above–referenced patent, thereby having odors distinct from those that may emanate from pencils lacking the scent infusion. Also excluded from the scope of the order are pencils with all of the following physical characteristics: 1) length: 13.5 or more inches; 2) sheath diameter: not less than one–and-one quarter inches at any point (before sharpening); and 3) core length: not more than 15 percent of the length of the pencil. In addition, pencils with all of the following physical characteristics are excluded from the scope of the order: novelty jumbo pencils that are octagonal in shape, approximately ten inches long, one inch in diameter before sharpening, and three–and-one eighth inches in circumference, composed of turned Amended Final Results In accordance with section 751(a) the Act, on July 6, 2006, the Department published its final results and partial rescission of the administrative review of certain cased pencils from the People’s Republic of China. See Final Results. On July 10, 2006, CFP/Three Star submitted a ministerial error allegation with respect to the final results of administrative review. No other interested party submitted ministerial error allegations. No party submitted comments on the ministerial error allegation submitted by CFP/Three Star. In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act, we have determined that a ministerial error was made in the calculation of the final margin for CFP/ Three Star.

SUMMARY: On May 1, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty order

Department conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of this 
order. As a result of this sunset review, the Department finds that 
revocation of the antidumping duty order would be likely to lead to 
continuation or recurrence of dumping. The dumping margins are

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background:

    On May 1, 2006, the Department published the notice of initiation 
of the second sunset review of the antidumping duty order on 
ferrovanadium and nitrided vanadium from Russia pursuant to section 
751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 71 
FR 25568 (May 1, 2006). The Department received the Notice of Intent to 
Participate from the Vanadium Producers and Reclaimers Association 
(VPRA) and its members: Gulf Chemical and Metallurgical Corporation and 
its wholly owned subsidiary, Bear Metallurgical Corporation; and 
Metallurg Vanadium Corporation (collectively ``the domestic interested 
parties''), within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). 
The domestic interested parties claimed interested party status under 
section 771(9)(C) and (E) of the Act, as manufacturers of a domestic-
like product in the United States, and a trade or business association

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 any respondent interested parties. As a result, pursuant 
to section 751(c)(4)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), 
the Department conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of the 
order.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are ferrovanadium and nitrided 
vanadium, regardless of grade, chemistry, form or size, unless 
expressly excluded from the scope of this order. Ferrovanadium includes 
alloys containing ferrovanadium as the predominant element by weight 
(i.e., more weight than any other element, except iron in some 
instances) and at least 4 percent by weight of iron. Nitrided vanadium 
includes compounds containing vanadium as the predominant element, by 
weight, and at least 5 percent, by weight, of nitrogen.
    Excluded from the scope of the order are vanadium additives other 
than ferrovanadium and nitrided vanadium, such as vanadium-aluminum 
master alloys, vanadium chemicals, vanadium waste and scrap, vanadium-
bearing raw materials, such as slag, boiler residues, fly ash, and 
vanadium oxides.
    The products subject to this order are currently classifiable under 
subheadings 2850.00.20, 7202.92.00, 7202.99.5040, 8112.40.3000, and
