AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration,

SUMMARY: On June 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated the sunset review of the antidumping duty order 
on sparklers from the People's Republic of China (``China'') pursuant

On the basis of Notices of Intent to Participate, adequate substantive 
responses filed on behalf of domestic interested parties, and lack of 
response from respondent interested parties, the Department conducted 
an expedited (120-day) sunset review. As a result of this sunset 
review, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty 
order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping. 
The dumping margins likely to prevail if the order were revoked are

received Notices of Intent to Participate from Diamond Sparkler 
Manufacturing Company and Elkton Sparkler Company (collectively

interested parties claimed interested party status under section 
771(9)(C) of the Act, as a manufacturer, producer, or wholesaler in the 
United States of a domestic like product. On June 22, 2005, and July 1, 
2005, the Department received complete substantive responses from the 
domestic interested parties within the deadline specified in section 
351.218(d)(3)(i) of the Department's regulations. We did not receive a

result, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and section 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2) of the Department's regulations, the Department 
conducted an expedited review of this order.

Scope of the Order

    The products subject to this order are fireworks each comprising a 
cut-to-length wire, one end of which is coated with a chemical mix that 
emits bright sparks while burning. Sparklers are currently classified

the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS''). 
Sparklers were formerly classified under HTSUS subcategory 3604.10.00. 
The Department has reviewed current categories and has determined that 
sparklers are currently classified in the above subcategories. Although 
HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, 
the written description of the merchandise under the order is 
dispositive.
