For such combined products, only the ammonium sulfate component is covered by the scope of this investigation. Ammonium sulfate that has been combined with other products is included within the scope regardless of whether the combining occurs in countries other than China. Ammonium sulfate that is otherwise subject to this investigation is not excluded when commingled (i.e., mixed or combined) with ammonium sulfate from sources not subject to this investigation. Only the subject component of such commingled products is covered by the scope of this investigation. The Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) registry number for ammonium sulfate is 7783–20–2.

Except as specified above, the term does not include stainless steel semi-finished products, cut-length flat-rolled products (i.e., cutlength rolled products which if less than 4.75 mm in thickness have a width measuring at least 10 times the thickness, or if 4.75 mm or more in thickness having a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least twice the thickness), wire (i.e., cold-formed products in coils, of any uniform solid cross section along their whole length, which do not conform to the definition of flat-rolled products), and angles, shapes and sections.

Final Results of Review

    The Department made no changes to its calculations announced in the 
Preliminary Results. As a result of this review, we determine that a
