On January 2, 2020, Commerce published the notice of initiation of the third sunset review of the AD orders on ferrovanadium from the Republic of South Africa (South Africa) and the People's Republic of China (China)  pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). On January 17, 2020, Commerce received notices of intent to participate from the Vanadium Producers and Reclaimers Association (VPRA) and its individual members—AMG Vanadium LLC (AMG V), Evergreen Metallurgical LLC, d.b.a. Bear Metallurgical Company (Bear), and U.S. Vanadium, LLC (U.S. Vanadium), within the 15-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). VPRA claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(E) of the Act as a trade or business association a majority of whose members manufacture, produce, or wholesale a domestic like product in the United States.
On January 27, 2020, Commerce received adequate substantive responses to the notice of initiation from VPRA within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). We received no substantive responses from respondent interested parties with respect to either of the orders covered by these sunset reviews.
On February 25, 2020, Commerce notified the U.S. International Trade Commission that it did not receive an adequate substantive response from respondent interested parties. As a result, pursuant to 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), Commerce conducted expedited (120-day) sunset reviews of the AD orders on ferrovanadium from South Africa and China.
