continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the 
United States, the Department is publishing this notice of the

review, the Department determined that revocation of the antidumping 
duty orders on brass sheet and strip from France, Italy, Germany and 
Japan would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping 
and notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail 
should the orders be revoked. See Brass Sheet and Strip from France,
