SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On June 1, 2004, the Department published in the Federal Register, the Sunset Initiation Notice for the antidumping duty orders on stainless steel sheet and strip in coils from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom, and the countervailing duty orders on stainless steel sheet and strip in coils from France, Italy, and South Korea. Subsequent to the publication of the Sunset Initiation Notice, we discovered an error.

Rescission of Review

In our Initiation Notice, we indicated that we were initiating five-year sunset reviews in accordance with 19 CFR 351.218(c). In the Initiation of Reviews section of our Initiation Notice, we initiated a sunset review of the countervailing duty order on stainless steel and strip in coils from France. However, this order was revoked effective November 7, 2003, in implementing certain determinations under Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act.[2] Therefore, we are rescinding the sunset review of the countervailing duty order of stainless steel sheet and strip in coils from France. The sunset review of the antidumping duty order of stainless steel sheet and strip in coils from France will continue.

This amendment is issued and published in accordance with section 777(i) of the Act.
