Background

On December 29, 2004, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the AD orders on CVP-23 from India and the PRC.[1] On April 1, 2015, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department published notice of the initiation of the second sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on CVP-23 from India and the PRC.[2] On April 13, 2015, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i), the following domestic CVP-23 producers timely notified the Department of their intent to participate in these reviews: Nation Ford Chemical Company and Sun Chemical Corporation (collectively, Petitioners).[3] Petitioners claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as manufacturers of a domestic like product in the United States. On May 1, 2015, we received a complete substantive response for each review from Petitioners within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i).[4] We received no substantive responses from any respondent interested parties. As a result, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department conducted expedited sunset reviews of these orders.
