Download as PDF 58186 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 192 / Wednesday, October 5, 2005 / Notices 351.218(d)(1)(I). The domestic interested parties claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(c) of the Act, as U.S. manufacturers of glycine, and sections 771(9)(E) and (F) of the Act, as a trade or business association of domestic manufacturers of glycine whose members are engaged in the production of glycine in the United States. The Department received a complete substantive response from the domestic interested parties within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). However, the Department did not receive any responses from the respondent interested parties to this proceeding. 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 this antidumping duty order. Scope of the Order The product covered by the order is glycine, which is a free–flowing crystalline material, like salt or sugar. Glycine is produced at varying levels of purity and is used as a sweetener/taste enhancer, a buffering agent, reabsorbable amino acid, chemical intermediate, and a metal complexing agent. This order covers glycine of all purity levels. Glycine is currently classified under subheading 2922.49.4020 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). In a separate scope ruling, the Department determined that D(-) Phenylglycine Ethyl Dane Salt is outside the scope of the order. See Notice of Scope Ruilings, 62 FR 62288 (November 21, 1997). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under the order is dispositive.

Tillman, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary, Import Administration, to Joseph A. Spetrini, Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated September 29, 2005, which is hereby adopted by this notice.
