Background

On November 2, 2009, the Department initiated and the ITC instituted sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on CVP-23 from India and the PRC [1] pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). See Initiation of Five-Year (“Sunset”) Review, 74 FR 56593 (November 2, 2009); See also Carbazole Violet Pigment 23 From China and India, 74 FR 56663 (November 2, 2009).

As a result of these sunset reviews, the Department determined that revocation of the antidumping duty orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and, therefore, notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail should the orders be revoked. See Carbazole Violet Pigment 23 from India and the People's Start Printed Page 29719Republic of China: Final Results of the Expedited Sunset Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders, 75 FR 12497 (March 16, 2010).

On May 10, 2010, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, the ITC determined that revocation of the antidumping duty order on CVP-23 from India and the PRC would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Carbazole Violet Pigment 23 from China and India: Investigation Nos. 701-TA-437 and 731-TA-1060 and 1061, USITC Publication 4151 (April 2010).

The merchandise subject to these antidumping duty orders is CVP-23 identified as Color Index No. 51319 and Chemical Abstract No. 6358-30-1, with the chemical name of diindolo [3,2-b:3′,2′-m] [2] triphenodioxazine, 8,18-dichloro-5, 15-diethyl-5, 15-dihydro-, and molecular formula of C34 H22 Cl2 N4 O2. The subject merchandise includes the crude pigment in any form (e.g., dry powder, paste, wet cake) and finished pigment in the form of presscake and dry color. Pigment dispersions in any form (e.g., pigment dispersed in oleoresins, flammable solvents, water) are not included within the scope of the orders. The merchandise subject to the orders is classifiable under subheading 3204.17.90.40 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written descriptions of the scope of the orders are dispositive.

Continuation of the Orders

As a result of these determinations by the Department and the ITC that revocation of these antidumping duty orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act, the Department hereby orders the continuation of the antidumping duty orders on CVP-23 from India and the PRC.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect antidumping duty cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise. The effective date of continuation of these orders will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of continuation. Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act, the Department intends to initiate the next five-year review of these orders not later than 30 days prior to the fifth anniversary of the effective date of continuation.

These five-year sunset reviews and this notice are in accordance with Section 751(c) of the Act and published pursuant to Section 777(i)(1) of the Act.
