Document Number: E7-14346
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-07-25
Agency: International Trade Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Commission invites comments from the public on whether changed circumstances exist sufficient to warrant the institution of an investigation pursuant to section 751(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1675(b)) (the Act) to review the Commission's affirmative determination in investigation No. 731-TA-1089 (Final).

Hot-Rolled Steel Products From the Netherlands
Document Number: E7-14187
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-07-24
Agency: International Trade Commission, Agencies and Commissions
On August 1, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``Commerce'') initiated and the U.S. International Trade Commission (``Commission'') instituted a five-year review concerning the antidumping duty order on hot-rolled steel products (``hot-rolled steel'') from the Netherlands. 71 FR 43443 and 71 FR 43521. However, on May 4, 2007, Commerce published notice in the Federal Register of the implementation of the findings of the World Trade Organization Panel under section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act and the revocation of the antidumping duty order concerning hot-rolled steel from the Netherlands effective April 23, 2007. 72 FR 25261. On June 27, 2007, Commerce published notice in the Federal Register of its final results of the sunset review of the antidumping duty order on hot-rolled steel from the Netherlands. 72 FR 35220. In that notice, Commerce determined that a finding of likelihood in a sunset review ``presumes the existence of an antidumping duty order currently in force, which is manifestly not the case here. Consequently, in the absence of an order currently in force, the Department cannot make a finding that it is likely that dumping will continue or recur if the order is revoked.'' 72 FR 35221. Commerce further stated that it was revoking the antidumping duty order on hot- rolled steel from the Netherlands effective November 29, 2006, the fifth anniversary of the date of publication of the order. Accordingly, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1675(c)), the five-year review of the antidumping duty order concerning hot-rolled steel from the Netherlands (investigation No. 731-TA-903 (Review)) is terminated.
