Certain Hot-Rolled Flat-Rolled Carbon-Quality Steel Flat Products from Brazil: Notice of Rescission of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review
On October 25, 2005, in response to timely requests from United States Steel Corporation (Petitioner) and Companhia Siderurgica Nacional (CSN), the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated an administrative review of the countervailing duty order on certain hot-rolled flat-rolled carbon-quality steel flat products from Brazil. See Notice of Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 70 FR 61601 (October 25, 2005) (Initiation Notice). This administrative review covered the period January 1, 2004 through December 31, 2004. We are now rescinding this review as a result of Petitioner's withdrawal of its requests for an administrative review for all four of the Brazilian producers and exporters (Companhia Siderurgica de Tubarao (CST), Usinas Siderurgicas de Minas Gerais (USIMINAS), Companhia Siderurgica Paulista (COSIPA), and CSN), and because CSN, the sole Brazilian company that self-requested a review, also withdrew its request for review.
Silicon Metal From the Russian Federation; Notice of Amended Final Determination Pursuant to Court Decision
On November 28, 2005, the United States Court of International Trade (``CIT'') issued an order affirming the Department of Commerce's (``the Department'') Second Remand Results. See Final Results of Redetermination Pursuant to Court Remand, Globe Metallurgical, Inc. v. United States, Consol. Ct. No. 03-00202 (October 21, 2005) (available at http://ia.ita.doc.gov) (``Second Remand Results''); see also Globe Metallurgical, Inc. v. United States, Slip Op. 05-150, 2005 Ct. Intl. Trade LEXIS 160 (CIT November 28, 2005) (affirming the Second Remand Results in their entirety) (``Globe Metallurgical III''). In the First Remand Results, the Department recalculated the antidumping margins for Bratsk Aluminum Smelter and Rual Trade Limited (collectively, ``Bratsk'') and ZAO Kremny and SUAL-Kremny-Ural Ltd. (``SKU'') (collectively, ``Kremny'') to value the respondents' usage of recycled silicon metal sized zero to five millimeters. See Final Results of Redetermination Pursuant to Court Remand, Globe Metallurgical, Inc. v. United States, Consol. Ct. No. 03-00202 (January 5, 2005) (available at http://ia.ita.doc.gov) (``First Remand Results''). In the Second Remand Results, the Department recalculated the adverse facts available (``AFA'') portion of Kremny's antidumping duty margin using the revised antidumping duty margin for Bratsk calculated in the First Remand Results. Because all litigation in this matter has now concluded, the Department is issuing its amended final determination in accordance with the CIT's decision.

Heavy Forged Hand Tools (i.e.
