AGENCY: United States International Trade Commission.

ACTION: Scheduling of full five-year reviews concerning the 
countervailing duty and antidumping duty orders on certain stainless 
steel plate from Belgium, Canada, Italy, Korea, South Africa, and 
Taiwan.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Commission hereby gives notice of the scheduling of full 
reviews pursuant to section 751(c)(5) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 
U.S.C. 1675(c)(5)) (the Act) to determine whether revocation of the 
countervailing duty and antidumping duty orders on certain stainless 
steel plate from Belgium, Canada, Italy, Korea, South Africa, and

has determined to exercise its authority to extend the review period by 
up to 90 days pursuant to 19 U.S.C. 1675(c)(5)(B). For further

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 6, 2004, the Commission determined that responses to its 
notice of institution of the subject five-year reviews were such that 
full reviews pursuant to section 751(c)(5) of the Act should proceed 
(69 FR 45076, July 28, 2004). A record of the Commissioners' votes, the 
Commission's statement on adequacy, and any individual Commissioner's 
statements are available from the Office of the Secretary and at the 
Commission's Web site.

Participation in the Reviews and Public Service List

    Persons, including industrial users of the subject merchandise and, 
if the merchandise is sold at the retail level, representative consumer 
organizations, wishing to participate in these reviews as parties must 
file an entry of appearance with the Secretary to the Commission, as 
provided in section 201.11 of the Commission's rules, by 45 days after 
publication of this notice. A party that filed a notice of appearance 
following publication of the Commission's notice of institution of the 
reviews need not file an additional notice of appearance. The Secretary 
will maintain a public service list containing the names and addresses 
of all persons, or their representatives, who are parties to the 
reviews.

Limited Disclosure of Business Proprietary Information (BPI) Under an 
Administrative Protective Order (APO) and BPI Service List

    Pursuant to section 207.7(a) of the Commission's rules, the 
Secretary will make BPI gathered in these reviews available to 
authorized applicants under the APO issued in the reviews, provided 
that the application is made by 45 days after publication of this 
notice. Authorized applicants must represent interested parties, as 
defined by 19 U.S.C. 1677(9), who are parties to the reviews. A party 
granted access to BPI following publication of the Commission's notice 
of institution of the reviews need not reapply for such access. A 
separate service list will be maintained by the Secretary for those 
parties authorized to receive BPI under the APO.

Staff Report

    The prehearing staff report in the reviews will be placed in the 
nonpublic record on March 9, 2005, and a public version will be issued 
thereafter, pursuant to section 207.64 of the Commission's rules.

    The Commission will hold a hearing in connection with the reviews 
beginning at 9:30 a.m. on March 29, 2005, at the U.S. International 
Trade Commission Building. Requests to appear at the hearing should be 
filed in writing with the Secretary to the Commission on or before 
March 21, 2005. A nonparty who has testimony that may aid the 
Commission's deliberations may request permission to present a short 
statement at the hearing. All parties and nonparties desiring to appear 
at the hearing and make oral presentations should attend a prehearing 
conference to be held at 9:30 a.m. on March 23, 2005, at the U.S. 
International Trade Commission Building. Oral testimony and written 
materials to be submitted at the public hearing are governed by 
sections 201.6(b)(2), 201.13(f), 207.24, and 207.66 of the Commission's 
rules. Parties must submit any request to present a portion of their 
hearing testimony in camera no later than 7 days prior to the date of

provided in section 207.24 of the Commission's rules, and posthearing

Commission's rules. The deadline for filing posthearing briefs is April

7, 2005. On May 5, 2005, the Commission will make available to parties 
all information on which they have not had an opportunity to comment. 
Parties may submit final comments on this information on or before May 
9, 2005, but such final comments must not contain new factual 
information and must otherwise comply with section 207.68 of the 
Commission's rules. All written submissions must conform with the 
provisions of section 201.8 of the Commission's rules; any submissions 
that contain BPI must also conform with the requirements of sections 
201.6, 207.3, and 207.7 of the Commission's rules. The Commission's 
rules do not authorize filing of submissions with the Secretary by 
facsimile or electronic means, except to the extent permitted by 
section 201.8 of the Commission's rules, as amended, 67 FR 68036 
(November 8, 2002).
    In accordance with sections 201.16(c) and 207.3 of the Commission's 
rules, each document filed by a party to the reviews must be served on 
all other parties to the reviews (as identified by either the public or 
BPI service list), and a certificate of service must be timely filed. 
The Secretary will not accept a document for filing without a 
certificate of service.

    Authority: These reviews are being conducted under authority of 
title VII of the Tariff Act of 1930; this notice is published 
pursuant to section 207.62 of the Commission's rules.
