Background

On November 17, 2010, the Department published the antidumping duty orders on coated paper from Indonesia and the PRC.[1] On October 1, 2015, the Department published the notice of initiation of the first sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on coated paper from Indonesia and the PRC pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).[2] On October 14, 2015, the Department received a Notice of Intent to Participate in these reviews from Verso Corporation (Verso), S.D. Warren Company d/b/a Sappi North America (Sappi), Appleton Coated LLC (Appleton) and the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union, AFL-CIO, CLC (USW) (collectively, “the petitioners”), within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). Verso, Sappi and Appleton claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.102(b)(29)(v), as domestic producers of a domestic like product in the United States. USW claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(D) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.102(b)(29)(vi), as a certified union or recognized union that represents workers engaged in the manufacturing of a domestic like product in the United States. On October 30, 2015, we received complete substantive responses from the petitioners within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i).[3] 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 (120-day) sunset reviews of these orders.
