of the antidumping duty order on solid agricultural grade ammonium 
nitrate from Ukraine, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (``the Act''). See Initiation of Five-Year 
(``Sunset'') Review, 77 FR 32527 (June 1, 2012). The Department 
received a notice of intent to participate from domestic interested

    On July 2, 2012, the Department received a substantive response 
from Petitioners. In addition to meeting the other requirements of 19 
CFR 351.218(d)(3), Petitioners provided information on the volume and 
value of Ukrainian exports of solid agricultural grade ammonium nitrate 
to the United States. The Department received no responses from other
