On September 1, 2004, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') initiated its second sunset review of the antidumping (``AD'') findings on sugar from Belgium, France, Germany and the countervailing duty (``CVD'') order on sugar from the European Community. See Notice of Initiation of Five-year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 69 FR 53408 (September 1, 2004). Pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), the International Trade Commission (``the ITC''), in its sunset review, determined that revocation of the AD findings on sugar from Belgium, France, Germany and the CVD order on sugar from the European Community (``EC'') would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Sugar From the European Union; Sugar from Belgium, France, and Germany, 70 FR 52446 (September 2, 2005). Therefore, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(1)(iii), the Department is revoking the AD findings on sugar from Belgium, France, Germany, and the CVD order on sugar from the EC.

On May 10, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) self-initiated a changed circumstances review to consider information contained in a recent Federal court decision, Goss International Corp. v. Tokyo Kikai Seisakusho, Ltd., 321 F.Supp.2d 1039 (N.D. Iowa 2004) (Goss Int'l). As detailed in our ``Notice of Initiation of the Changed Circumstances Review,'' evidence was presented in that court proceeding demonstrating that Tokyo Kikai Seisakusho, Ltd. (TKS) intentionally provided false information regarding its sale to the Dallas Morning News (DMN), the subject of the Department's 1997-1998 administrative review. After consideration of comments and information provided for this review, we preliminarily determine that it is appropriate to take the following course of action in order to protect the integrity of the Department's proceedings: (1) Revise TKS' margin for the 1997-1998 review to apply a rate of 59.67 percent based on adverse facts available; (2) rescind the revocation of the antidumping duty order for TKS because TKS no longer qualifies for revocation based on three consecutive administrative reviews resulting in zero dumping margins; and (3) reconsider the revocation of the order under the sunset review provision of the statute (section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act)). If these preliminary results are confirmed in the final results, the Department will revise TKS' margin for the 1997-1998 review, rescind the revocation of the antidumping duty order for TKS, and initiate a new sunset review to reconsider the revocation of this order.
