SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background. In December 2005, the Commission

the Court issued a decision remanding the matter to the Commission for 
further proceedings not inconsistent with that opinion. Nevinnomysskiy 
Azot v. United States, Slip Op. 07-130 (Ct. Int'l Trade, Aug. 28, 
2007). In its opinion, the Court instructed the Commission to: (1) 
Provide, ``in its examination of whether the likely volume of subject 
imports would prove significant if the antidumping orders in question 
are revoked, * * * more rigorous analysis of its assessment of the 
effects of third-country barriers;'' (2) ``address the deficiencies in 
its likely price effects argument, particularly the likely price 
effects of subject imports in light of the already substantial presence 
of low-cost non-subject imports in the domestic market;'' and (3) 
``reassess the likely impact of subject imports on the domestic 
industry to account for the difference between the first sunset 
reviews' findings and the findings of the current review within the 
context of the domestic industry's recent improved performance.''
