Pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the International Trade Commission (ITC) determined that revocation of the antidumping duty order on top-of-the-stove stainless steel cooking ware (cooking ware) from Taiwan would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Investigations Nos. 731-TA-298 and 299 (Second Review); Investigations Nos. 701-TA-267 and 268 and 731-TA-304 and 305 (Second Review); Porcelain-on-Steel Cooking Ware From China and Taiwan; Top-of-the-Stove Stainless Steel Cooking Ware From Korea and Taiwan, 70 FR 67740 (November 8, 2005) (ITC Determination). Therefore, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(1)(iii), the Department of Commerce (the Department) is revoking the antidumping duty order on cooking ware from Taiwan. Pursuant to section 751(c)(6)(A)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i), the effective date of revocation of the antidumping duty order is April 18, 2005, the fifth anniversary of the date of publication in the Federal Register of the determination to continue the order.

Background

On March 1, 2005, the Department and the ITC initiated sunset reviews of the antidumping duty order on cooking ware from Taiwan pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-year (“Sunset”) Reviews, 70 FR 9919 (March 1, 2005). As a result of its review, the Department found that revocation of the antidumping duty order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, and notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail were the order revoked.
