The Department received no comments. The Department concludes that producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product to which these orders pertain lack interest in the relief provided by these orders with respect to wear plate because the domestic parties: 1) made an affirmative statement of no interest in the continuation of the orders with respect to that merchandise; and 2) did not comment on the Preliminary Results, in which the Department stated its intent to revoke the order with respect to this merchandise. Therefore, the Department concludes that it is appropriate to revoke these orders, in part, with respect to unliquidated entries of wear plate, not subject to the final results of an administrative review.
