Certain Cut-to-Length Carbon Steel Plate from Russia; Final Results of Expedited Sunset Review of the Suspension Agreement
On August 1, 2008, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') initiated a sunset review of the suspended antidumping duty investigation on certain cut-to-length carbon steel plate (``CTL plate'') from the Russian Federation (``Russia'') pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). See Initiation of Five-year (``Sunset'') Review, 73 FR 44968 (August 1, 2008) (``Initiation Notice''). On the basis of notices of intent to participate and adequate substantive comments filed on behalf of domestic interested parties, as well as no response from respondent interested parties, the Department is conducting an expedited (120-day) review. As a result of this review, the Department finds that termination of the suspension agreement and the underlying antidumping duty investigation on CTL plate 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.

The Department of Commerce (Department) is conducting administrative and new shipper reviews of the antidumping duty order on fresh garlic from the People's Republic of China (PRC) covering the period of review (POR) of November 1, 2006 through October 31, 2007. As discussed below, we preliminarily determine that sales have been made in the United States at prices below normal value (NV) with respect to certain exporters who participated fully and are entitled to a separate rate in the administrative or new shipper reviews (NSR). In addition, we are preliminarily rescinding the NSR for Anqiu Haoshun Trade Co., Ltd. (Haoshun).
