Document Number: E6-3086
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-03-06
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On April 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') initiated a sunset review of the suspended antidumping duty investigation on ammonium nitrate from the Russian Federation (``Russia'') 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 16800 (April 1, 2005) (``Initiation Notice''). On the basis of notices of intent to participate filed on behalf of domestic interested parties and adequate substantive comments filed on behalf of domestic and respondent interested parties, the Department conducted a full (240-day) review. As a result of this review, the Department finds that termination of the suspended antidumping duty investigation on ammonium nitrate from Russia would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the levels indicated in the Final Results of Review section of this notice.
Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted Average Dumping Margin During an Antidumping Duty Investigation
Document Number: 06-2134
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-03-06
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is requesting comments regarding the calculation of the weighted average dumping margin in an antidumping duty investigation. Currently, the Department usually makes comparisons between average export prices and average normal values and does not offset any dumping that is found with the results of comparisons for which the average export price exceeds the average normal value. A recent WTO dispute settlement report has found that the United States application of this methodology was inconsistent with our WTO obligations. In response to this report, the Department will abandon the use of average-to-average comparisons without such offsets. The Department seeks comment on the alternative approach(s) that may be appropriate in future investigations.

The government of Ukraine (``GOU'') has undertaken substantial reforms relating to the factors examined by the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') under section 771(18)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act'').
