Castings from Brazil

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On May 3, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated the third sunset review of the countervailing 
duty order (``CVD'') on heavy iron construction castings from Brazil 
pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''). On the basis of a notice of intent to participate and an 
adequate substantive response filed on behalf of the domestic 
interested parties and an inadequate response from respondent 
interested parties (in this case, no response), the Department 
conducted an expedited sunset review of the CVD order pursuant to 
section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(B). As a 
result of this sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of 
the CVD order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of 
a countervailable subsidy at the level indicated in the ``Final Results 
of Review'' section of this notice.

EFFECTIVE DATE: September 8, 2010.

the Department conducted an expedited review of the CVD order.
