SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

In 2004, Commerce published in the Federal Register its final affirmative determination of sales at less than fair value and AD order on ironing tables from China.[1] On February 1, 2021, Commerce published the notice of initiation of the third sunset review of the Order, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).[2]

On February 16, 2021, Commerce received a notice of intent to participate within the 15-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i) from Home Products International, Inc. (the petitioner).[3] The petitioner claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as manufacturers, producers, or wholesalers in the United States of a domestic like product. On March 3, 2021, Commerce received complete substantive responses to the notice of initiation from domestic interested parties within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i).[4] Commerce received no substantive responses from respondent interested parties.

On March 23, 2021, Commerce notified the U.S. International Trade Commission that it did not receive an adequate substantive response from respondent interested parties.[5] As a result, Commerce conducted an expedited, i.e., 120-day, sunset review Start Printed Page 30256of the Order pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2).
