Following first five-year reviews by Commerce and the Commission, effective November 17, 1999, Commerce issued a continuation of the antidumping duty orders on imports of solid urea from Russia and Ukraine (64 FR 62653). Following second five-year reviews by Commerce and the Commission, effective January 5, 2006, Commerce issued a continuation of the antidumping duty orders on imports of solid urea from Russia and Ukraine (71 FR 581). The Commission is now conducting third reviews to determine whether revocation of the orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to the domestic industry within a reasonably foreseeable time. It will assess the adequacy of interested party responses to this notice of institution to determine whether to conduct full reviews or expedited reviews. The Commission’s determinations in any expedited reviews will be based on the facts available, which may include information provided in response to this notice. Definitions. The following definitions apply to these reviews: (1) Subject Merchandise is the class or kind of merchandise that is within the scope of the five-year reviews, as defined by Commerce. (2) The Subject Countries in these reviews are Russia and Ukraine. (3) The Domestic Like Product is the domestically produced product or products which are like, or in the absence of like, most similar in characteristics and uses with, the Subject Merchandise. In its original determinations, its expedited first fiveyear review determinations, and its full second five-year review determinations, the Commission defined the Domestic Like Product as solid urea consistent with Commerce’s scope of subject merchandise. (4) The Domestic Industry is the U.S. producers as a whole of the Domestic Like Product, or those producers whose collective output of the Domestic Like Product constitutes a major proportion of the total domestic production of the product. In its original determinations, its expedited first five-year review determinations, and its full second fiveyear review determinations, the Commission defined the Domestic Industry as all domestic producers of solid urea.

This advice was developed in consultation with the Office of Government Ethics. Consequently, former employees are not required to seek Commission approval to appear in a review under Commission rule 19 CFR 201.15, even if the corresponding underlying original investigation was pending when they were Commission employees.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background. On July 14, 1987, the Department 
of Commerce (``Commerce'') issued antidumping duty orders on imports of 
solid urea from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (``USSR'') (52 
FR 26367). On June 29, 1992, following the division of the USSR in 
December 1991 into 15 independent states, Commerce divided the original 
antidumping duty order on solid urea from the USSR into 15 orders 
applicable to each independent state (57 FR 28828). Following first 
five-year reviews by Commerce and the Commission, effective November 
17, 1999, Commerce issued a continuation of the antidumping duty orders 
on imports of solid urea from Russia and Ukraine (64 FR 62653). 
Following second five-year reviews by Commerce and the Commission, 
effective January 5, 2006, Commerce issued a continuation of the 
antidumping duty orders on imports of solid urea from Russia and 
Ukraine (71 FR 581). The Commission is now conducting third reviews to 
determine whether revocation of the orders would be likely to lead to 
continuation or recurrence of material injury to the domestic industry 
within a reasonably foreseeable time. It will assess the adequacy of 
interested party responses to this notice of institution to determine 
whether to conduct full reviews or expedited reviews. The Commission's 
determinations in any expedited reviews will be based on the facts 
available, which may include information provided in response to this 
notice.
    Definitions. The following definitions apply to these reviews:
    (1) Subject Merchandise is the class or kind of merchandise that is 
within the scope of the five-year reviews, as defined by Commerce.
    (2) The Subject Countries in these reviews are Russia and Ukraine.
    (3) The Domestic Like Product is the domestically produced product 
or products which are like, or in the absence of like, most similar in 
characteristics and uses with, the Subject Merchandise. In its original 
determinations, its expedited first five-year review determinations, 
and its full second five-year review determinations, the Commission 
defined the Domestic Like Product as solid urea consistent with 
Commerce's scope of subject merchandise.
    (4) The Domestic Industry is the U.S. producers as a whole of the 
Domestic Like Product, or those producers whose collective output of 
the Domestic Like Product constitutes a major proportion of the total 
domestic production of the product. In its original determinations, its 
expedited first five-year review determinations, and its full second 
five-year review determinations, the Commission defined the Domestic 
Industry as all domestic producers of solid urea.
    (5) An Importer is any person or firm engaged, either directly or 
through a parent company or subsidiary, in importing the Subject 
Merchandise into

[[Page 74747]]

the United States from a foreign manufacturer or through its selling 
agent.
    Participation in the reviews and public service list. Persons, 
including industrial users of the Subject Merchandise and, if the 
merchandise is sold at the retail level, representative consumer 
organizations, wishing to participate in the reviews as parties must 
file an entry of appearance with the Secretary to the Commission, as 
provided in section 201.11(b)(4) of the Commission's rules, no later 
than 21 days after publication of this notice in the Federal Register. 
The Secretary will maintain a public service list containing the names 
and addresses of all persons, or their representatives, who are parties 
to the reviews.
    Former Commission employees who are seeking to appear in Commission 
five-year reviews are advised that they may appear in a review even if 
they participated personally and substantially in the corresponding 
underlying original investigation. The Commission's designated agency 
ethics official has advised that a five-year review is not considered 
the ``same particular matter'' as the corresponding underlying original 
investigation for purposes of 18 U.S.C. 207, the post employment 
statute for Federal employees, and Commission rule 201.15(b)(19 CFR 
201.15(b)), 73 FR 24609 (May 5, 2008). This advice was developed in 
consultation with the Office of Government Ethics. Consequently, former 
employees are not required to seek Commission approval to appear in a 
review under Commission rule 19 CFR 201.15, even if the corresponding 
underlying original investigation was pending when they were Commission 
employees. For further ethics advice on this matter, contact Carol 
McCue Verratti, Deputy Agency Ethics Official, at 202-205-3088.
    Limited disclosure of business proprietary information (BPI) under 
an administrative protective order (APO) and APO service list. Pursuant 
to section 207.7(a) of the Commission's rules, the Secretary will make 
BPI submitted in these reviews available to authorized applicants under

any person submitting information to the Commission in connection with 
these reviews must certify that the information is accurate and 
complete to the best of the submitter's knowledge. In making the

personnel to use the information provided in any other reviews or 
investigations of the same or comparable products which the Commission 
conducts under Title VII of the Act, or in internal audits and 
investigations relating to the programs and operations of the 
Commission pursuant to 5 U.S.C. Appendix 3.
