Continuation of Antidumping Duty Orders on Certain Stainless Steel Plate in Coils From Belgium, Italy, South Korea, South Africa, and Taiwan, and the Countervailing Duty Orders on Certain Stainless Steel Plate in Coils From Belgium, Italy, and South Africa
As a result of the determinations by the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') and the International Trade Commission (``ITC'') that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on certain stainless steel plate from Belgium, Italy, South Korea, South Africa, and Taiwan, and the countervailing duty orders on Belgium, Italy, and South Africa would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and countervailable subsidies, and material injury to an industry in the United States, the Department is publishing notice of continuation of these antidumping and countervailing duty orders.
Revocation of Antidumping Duty Order; Certain Stainless Steel Plate in Coils From Canada
On May 21, 1999, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') published an antidumping duty order on certain stainless steel plate in coils from Canada. See Antidumping Duty Order, Certain Stainless Steel Plate in Coils from Belgium, Canada, Italy, Republic of Korea, South Africa, and Taiwan, 64 FR 27756 (May 21, 1999). On April 1, 2004, the Department initiated its first sunset review of the order on certain stainless steel plate in coils from Canada. See Initiation of Five-Year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 69 FR 17129 (April 1, 2004). (``First Sunset Review''). Pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act from 1930, as amended (``the Act''), the International Trade Commission (``the ITC'') determined that revocation of the antidumping duty order on certain stainless steel plate in coils from Canada is not likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Certain Stainless Steel Plate from Belgium, Canada, Italy, Korea, South Africa, and Taiwan, 70 FR 38710 (July 5, 2005). Therefore, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act, and section 351.222(i)(1)(iii) of the Department's regulations, the Department is revoking the antidumping duty order on certain stainless steel plate in coils from Canada.

On April 8, 2005, in response to appeals in NTN Corporation, NTN Bearing Corporation of America, American NTN Bearing Manufacturing Corporation, NTN Driveshaft, Inc., NTN Bower Corporation, and NTN-BCA Corporation v. United States and Timken U.S. Corporation (NTN v. United States), 125 Fed. Appx. 1011 (CAFC April 8, 2005), the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) affirmed the Court of International Trade's (CIT's) decision of the Department of Commerce's (the Department's) final remand determination, Court No. 00-09-00443, Slip. Op. 04-64 (CIT June 9, 2004). This remand determination affects final assessment rates for the administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on antifriction bearings (other than tapered roller bearings) and parts thereof from Japan for the period of review May 1, 1998, through April 30, 1999. The merchandise covered by these reviews is ball bearings and parts thereof (BBs), cylindrical roller bearings and parts thereof (CRBs), and spherical plain bearings and parts thereof (SPBs).

Brake Rotors From the People's Republic of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Antidumping Duty Administrative Review
On May 13, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') published the notice of preliminary results of its changed circumstances review examining whether Shanxi Fengkun Foundry Ltd., Co. (``Fengkun Foundry''') is the successor-in-interest to Shanxi Fengkun Metallurgical Ltd., Co. (``Fengkun Metallurgical''') by virtue of its name change. See Notice of Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Brake Rotors From the People's Republic of China, 70 FR 25545 (May 13, 2005) (``Preliminary Results''). In those Preliminary Results, the Department found that Fengkun Foundry is not the successor-in-interest to Fengkun Metallurgical. After consideration of new factual information solicited by the Department and comments from interested parties, the Department now finds that Fengkun Foundry is the successor-in-interest to Fengkun Metallurgical, and that Fengkun Foundry should retain the deposit rate assigned to Fengkun Metallurgical by the Department for all entries of the subject merchandise produced or exported by Fengkun Metallurgical. We have now completed this changed circumstances review in accordance with 19 CFR 351.216 and 351.221(c)(3).
