Background

On July 23, 2010, the Department published the antidumping duty order on steel grating from the PRC.[1] On June 1, 2015, the Department initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty order on steel grating from the PRC pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”).[2] On June 15, 2015, the Department received a timely notice of intent to participate in the sunset review from the Metal Grating Coalition, consisting of individual members Alabama Metal Industries Corporation; Fisher & Ludlow, Inc.; Harsco Industrial IKG; Interstate Gratings, LLC; and Ohio Gratings, Inc., domestic interested parties, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). On July 1, 2015, the Metal Grating Coalition filed a timely substantive response with the Department pursuant to 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). The Department did not receive a substantive response from any respondent interested party. 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 an expedited sunset review of the Order.
