SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The antidumping duty order on hand trucks from the PRC was published on December 2, 2004.[1] On March 2, 2015, the Department published the notice of initiation of the sunset review of the antidumping duty order on hand trucks from the PRC pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).[2]

In accordance with 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i) and (ii), the Department received a notice of intent to participate in this sunset review from Gleason Industrial Products, Inc. and Precision Products, Inc. (collectively, Petitioners), within 15 days after the date of publication of the Sunset Initiation. Petitioners claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as a domestic producer of the domestic like product.

On March 26, 2015, the Department received a complete substantive response to the notice of initiation from Petitioners within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). The Department received no substantive response from any respondent interested parties. As a result, the Department conducted an expedited, i.e., 120-day, sunset review of this order pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2).

Scope of the Order

The merchandise subject to the order consists of hand trucks manufactured from any material, whether assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, suitable for any use, and certain parts thereof, namely the vertical frame, the handling area and the projecting edges or toe plate, and any combination thereof. They are typically imported under heading 8716.80.50.10 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), although they may also be imported under heading 8716.80.50.90 and 8716.90.50.60. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written product description is dispositive. A full description of the scope of the order is contained in the “Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the Expedited Second Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Hand Trucks and Certain Parts Thereof from the People's Republic of China,” dated concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice (Decision Memorandum).

All issues raised in this review are addressed in the Decision Memorandum, including the likelihood of continuation or recurrence of dumping in the event of revocation, and the magnitude of dumping margins likely to prevail if the order was revoked. Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues raised in this review and the corresponding recommendations in the Decision Memorandum, which is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov and is available to all parties in the Central Records Unit in room B8024 of the main Commerce building.

The signed and electronic versions of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Final Results of Sunset Review

Pursuant to sections 752(c)(1) and (3) of the Act, we determine that revocation of the antidumping duty order on hand trucks from the PRC would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at weighted-average margins up to 383.60 percent.
