Revocation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders: Brass Sheet and Strip from Brazil and Canada
On April 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') initiated sunset reviews of the antidumping duty (``AD'') orders on brass sheet and strip from Brazil and Canada and the countervailing duty (``CVD'') order on brass sheet and strip from Brazil. See Initiation of Five-year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 70 FR 16800 (April 1, 2005). Pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), the International Trade Commission (``the ITC'') determined that revocation of these orders 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 Brass Sheet and Strip from Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, and Japan, 71 FR 14719 (March 23, 2006) (``ITC Final''). Therefore, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(1)(iii), the Department is revoking the AD orders on brass sheet and strip from Brazil and Canada and the CVD order on brass sheet and strip from Brazil.
