Certain Pasta from Turkey and Italy: Continuation of 
Countervailing Duty and Antidumping Duty Orders

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On October 2, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated sunset reviews of the antidumping duty (``AD'') 
orders and countervailing duty (``CVD'') orders on certain pasta from 
Italy and Turkey. As a result of the determinations by the Department 
and the International Trade Commission (``ITC'') that revocation of the 
AD and CVD orders on pasta from Italy and Turkey would likely lead to 
continuation or recurrence of dumping and countervailable subsidies, 
and material injury to an industry in the United States, the Department 
is publishing a notice of continuation of these AD and CVD orders.

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 12, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Audrey Twyman (CVD), James Terpstra 
(AD), or Brandon Farlander, AD/CVD Operations, Import Administration,

Street & Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: 
(202) 482-3534, (202) 482-3965, and (202) 482-0182, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The AD and CVD orders which cover pasta from Turkey and Italy were 
published in the Federal Register on July 24, 1996. See Notice of 
Countervailing Duty Order: Certain Pasta (``Pasta'') From Turkey, 61 FR 
38546 (July 24, 1996); Notice of Countervailing Duty Order and Amended 
Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination: Certain Pasta 
(``Pasta'') From Italy, 61 FR 38544 (July 24, 1996); Notice of 
Antidumping Duty Order and Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less 
Than Fair Value: Certain Pasta From Turkey, 61 FR 38545 (July 24, 
1996); and Notice of Antidumping Duty Order and Amended Final 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Pasta From 
Italy, 61 FR 38547 (July 24, 1996).
    On October 2, 2006, the Department initiated and the ITC instituted 
sunset reviews of the AD and CVD orders on pasta from Italy and Turkey 
pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''). See Initiation of Five-year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 71 FR 57921 
(October 2, 2006); and Certain Pasta from Italy and Turkey, 
Investigations Nos. 701-TA-365-366 and 731-TA-734-735 (Second Review), 
71 FR 57999 (October 2, 2006).
    As a result of its reviews, the Department found that revocation of 
the AD and CVD orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence 
of dumping and countervailable subsidies, and notified the ITC of the 
magnitude of the margins and net countervailable subsidies likely to 
prevail were the orders to be revoked. See Certain Pasta from Turkey: 
Final Results of Expedited Five-year (``Sunset'') Review of the 
Countervailing Duty Order, 72 FR 5269 (February 5, 2007); Certain Pasta 
from Italy: Final Results of Expedited Five-year (``Sunset'') Review of 
the Countervailing Duty Order, 72 FR 5271 (February 5, 2007); and 
Notice of Final Results of Expedited Sunset Reviews of the Antidumping 
Duty Orders: Certain Pasta from Italy and Turkey, 72 FR 5266 (February 
5, 2007).
    On September 27, 2007, the ITC determined pursuant to section 
751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the AD and CVD orders on pasta 
from Italy and Turkey would likely lead to continuation or recurrence 
of material injury to an industry in the United States within a 
reasonably foreseeable time. See Certain Pasta from Italy and Turkey, 
Investigations Nos. 701-TA-365-366 and 731-TA-734-735 (Second Review), 
72 FR 56382 (October 3, 2007).

pasta in packages of five pounds four ounces or less, whether or not

pasta covered by this scope is typically sold in the retail market, in 
fiberboard or cardboard cartons, or polyethylene or polypropylene bags 
of varying dimensions.
    Excluded from the scope of the orders are refrigerated, frozen, or 
canned pastas, as well as all forms of egg pasta, with the exception of

    The merchandise subject to review is currently classifiable under 
item 1902.19.20 and 1901.90.9095 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of 
the United States (``HTSUS''). Although the HTSUS subheadings are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description 
of the merchandise subject to the order is dispositive.

Determination

that revocation of these AD and CVD orders would likely lead to 
continuation or recurrence of dumping and countervailable subsidies,

    The effective date of continuation of these orders will be the date

Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) and 751(c)(6)(A) of the Act, the 
Department intends to initiate the next five-year review of these 
orders not later than September 2012.
