from Brazil, the antidumping duty order on heavy iron construction

adequate and that the respondent interested parties responses were 
inadequate. The Commission did not find any other circumstances that 
would warrant conducting full reviews.\1\ Accordingly, the Commission 
determined that it would conduct expedited reviews pursuant to section 
751(c)(3) of the Act.\2\

    \1\ A record of the Commissioners' votes, the Commission's 
statement on adequacy, and any individual Commissioner's statements 
will be available from the Office of the Secretary and at the
