See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 75 FR 30777 (June 2, 2010) (Notice of Initiation).

Using the data provided by Aqualon in its July 1, 2010, substantive response, and data provided by Akzo Nobel in its July, 2, 2010, response, the Department found that Akzo Nobel accounted for less than 50 percent of exports of subject merchandise from the Netherlands. On July 22, 2010, the Department determined that Akzo Nobel’s response was not adequate because it did not account for more than 50 percent of the total exports of subject merchandise to the United States over the relevant five-year period as required by 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(A).

SUMMARY: On June 2, 2010, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
initiated sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on stainless 
steel plate in coils (SSPC) from Belgium, Italy, South Africa, South 
Korea, and Taiwan, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (the Act). The Department has conducted expedited 
(120-day) sunset reviews for these orders pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2). As a result of these sunset reviews, the 
Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty orders would 
be likely to lead to the continuation or recurrence of dumping.

DATES: Effective Date: October 6, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Hector Rodriguez or Elizabeth 
Eastwood, AD/CVD Operations, Office 2, Import Administration, 
International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th 
Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: 
(202) 482-0629 and (202) 482-3874, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On June 2, 2010, the Department published the notice of initiation 
of the sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on SSPC from 
Belgium, Italy, South Africa, South Korea, and Taiwan pursuant to 
section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-Year (``Sunset'') 
Review, 75 FR 30777 (June 2, 2010).
    The Department received a notice of intent to participate from 
Allegheny Ludlum Corporation, North American Stainless and the United 
Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied 
Industrial and Service Workers International Union (domestic interested 
parties), within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). The 
domestic interested parties claimed interested party status under 
sections 771(9)(C) and (D) of the Act as U.S. producers of SSPC in the 
United States or a certified union whose workers are engaged in the 
production of SSPC in the United States.
    The Department received adequate substantive responses to the 
notice of initiation from the domestic interested parties within the 
30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). We received no 
substantive responses from respondent interested parties with respect 
to any of the orders covered by these sunset reviews. As a result, 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department conducted 
expedited (120-day) sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on 
SSPC from Belgium, Italy, South Africa, South Korea, and Taiwan.

Scope of the Orders

    Stainless steel is an alloy steel containing, by weight, 1.2 
percent or less of carbon and 10.5 percent or more of chromium, with or 
without other elements. The subject plate products are flat-rolled 
products, 254 mm or over in width and 4.75 mm or more in thickness, in 
coils, and annealed or otherwise heat treated and pickled or otherwise 
descaled. The subject plate may also be further processed (e.g., cold-
rolled, polished, etc.) provided that it maintains the specified 
dimensions of plate following such processing. Excluded from the scope 
of the orders are the following: (1) Plate not in coils, (2) plate that 
is not annealed or otherwise heat treated and pickled or otherwise 
descaled, (3) sheet and strip, and (4) flat bars.
    The merchandise subject to the orders is currently classifiable in 
the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) at
