                Certain Iron Construction Castings From Brazil, Canada and the
                People's Republic of China: Final Results of Expedited Fifth Sunset
                Review of Antidumping Duty Orders

                Department of Commerce.
                SUMMARY: As a result of these sunset reviews, the Department of
                Commerce (Commerce) finds that revocation of the antidumping duty (AD)
                orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping
                at the dumping margins identified in the ``Final Results of Reviews''
                section of this notice.
                DATES: Applicable March 16, 2022.

                the fifth sunset review of the AD orders on certain iron construction

                (China) \1\ pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as

                 On December 16, 2021, D&L Foundry, Inc.; EJ USA, Inc.; Neenah
                Foundry Company; and U.S. Foundry & Manufacturing Corporation
                (collectively, ``domestic interested parties'') notified Commerce of
                their intent to participate within the 15-day period specified in 19
                CFR 351.218(d)(1). The domestic interested parties claimed interested
                party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as producers of a
                domestic like product in the United States.
                 On December 20, 2021, Commerce received complete substantive
                responses to the Notice of Initiation with respect to the Orders, from
                the domestic interested parties within the 30-day period specified in
                19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i).\3\ Commerce received no substantive responses
                from respondent interested parties. As a result, pursuant to section
                751(c)(3)(8) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(l)(ii)(C)(2), Commerce
                has conducted expedited (120-day) sunset reviews of the AD orders on
                certain iron construction castings from Brazil, Canada, and China.

                Commerce determines that revocation of the AD orders on certain iron
                construction castings from Brazil, Canada, and China
                [[Page 14822]]
                would likely to lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping, and
                that the magnitude of the dumping margins likely to prevail would be
                weighted-average margins up to 58.74 percent for Brazil, up to 25.52
                percent for China, and above de minimis for Canada.
