SUMMARY:

Pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), the United States International Trade Commission (“the Commission”) determined that revocation of the antidumping duty order on aramid fiber formed of poly para-phenylene terephthalamide (“Aramid Fiber”) from the Netherlands is not likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time, 66 FR 12810 (February 28, 2001). Therefore, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(1), the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) is revoking the antidumping duty order on aramid fiber from the Netherlands. Pursuant to section 751(c)(6)(A)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(ii) the effective date of revocation is January 1, 2000.

Background

On December 1, 1999, the Department initiated (64 FR 67247), and the Commission instituted (64 FR 67302), a sunset review of the antidumping duty order on aramid fiber from the Netherlands, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. As a result of its review, the Department found that revocation of the antidumping duty order on aramid fiber from the Netherlands would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, and notified the Commission of the magnitude of the margin likely to prevail were the antidumping duty order revoked. See Final Results of Full Sunset Review: Aramid Fiber Formed of Poly Para-Phenylene Terephthalamide From the Netherlands, 65 FR 65294 (November 1, 2000).

On February 28, 2001, the Commission determined, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the antidumping duty order on aramid fiber from the Netherlands would not likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Aramid Fiber Formed of Poly Para-Phenylene Terephthalamide From the Netherlands, 66 FR 12810 (February 28, 2001), and USITC Publication 3394, (February 2001), Investigation No. 731-TA-652 (Review).
