Background

On October 28, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the “Department”) published in the Federal Register a notice of preliminary results of the full sunset review of the antidumping duty order on BSS from Germany, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See Brass Sheet and Strip from Germany: Preliminary Results of the Sunset Review of Antidumping Duty Order, 70 FR 62093 (October 28, 2005) (“Preliminary Results”). In our Preliminary Results, we determined that revocation of the order would likely result in continuation or recurrence of dumping with a margin of 3.81 percent for Wieland-Werke AG and an “all others” rate of 7.30 percent. We did not receive a case brief on behalf of either domestic or respondent interested parties within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(i).

Scope of the Order

The product covered by this order is brass sheet and strip, other than leaded and tinned. The chemical composition of the covered product is currently defined in the Copper Development Association (“C.D.A.”) 200 Series or the Unified Numbering System (“U.N.S.”) C2000. This order does not cover products with chemical compositions that are defined by anything other than either the C.D.A. or U.N.S. series. In physical dimensions, the product covered by this order has a solid rectangular cross section over 0.0006 inches (0.15 millimeters) through 0.1888 inches (4.8 millimeters) in finished thickness or gauge, regardless of width. Coiled, wound-on-reels (traverse wound), and cut-to-length products are included. The merchandise is currently classified under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (“HTSUS”) item numbers 7409.21.00 and 7409.29.00. The HTSUS numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes. The written description of the scope of this order remains dispositive.

Analysis of Comments Received

The Department did not receive case briefs from either domestic or respondent interested parties. Therefore, we have not made any changes to our Preliminary Results.

Final Results of Review

We determine that revocation of the antidumping duty order on BSS from Germany would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the following weighted-average margins:

Manufacturer/ExporterMargin (percent)
Wieland-Werke AG3.81
All Others7.30

Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
