On the basis of the record developed in the subject five-year reviews, the United States International Trade Commission determines, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1675(c)) (the Act), that revocation of the countervailing duty order on imports of grain-oriented silicon electrical steel from Italy and revocation of the antidumping duty orders on imports of grain-oriented silicon electrical steel from Italy and Japan would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.
The Commission instituted these reviews on December 1, 1999 (64 FR 67318) and determined on March 3, 2000, that it would conduct full reviews (65 FR 13989, March 15, 2000).

The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on January 11, 2001, and all persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by counsel.
