Document Number: E6-7603
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-05-18
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On February 22, 2006, the United States Court of International Trade (CIT) issued an order affirming the Department of Commerce's (Department) Final Results of Redetermination Pursuant to Court Remand filed by the Department of Commerce on December 2, 2003 (Redetermination). See Nippon Steel Corporation v. United States, SLIP OP. 06-23 (CIT 2006).

Because all litigation in this matter has now concluded, the Department is issuing its amended final determination in accordance with the CIT's decision.

On May 2, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') initiated and the International Trade Commission (``ITC'') instituted the sunset review of the antidumping duty (``AD'') order on synthetic indigo from the People's Republic of China (``the PRC'') pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). See Notice of Initiation of Five-year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 70 FR 22632 (May 2, 2005) and Institution of a Five-year Review concerning the Antidumping Duty Order on Synthetic Indigo from China, 70 FR 22701 (May 2, 2005).

See Synthetic Indigo from China, 71 FR 26109 (May 3, 2006). Therefore, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(1)(iii), the Department is revoking the AD order on synthetic indigo from the PRC.
