Paper Clips from the People's Republic of China; Notice of Final 
Results of Expedited Sunset Review of Antidumping Duty Order

A-570-826

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On July 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated the sunset review of the antidumping duty order 
on paper clips from the People's Republic of China (``China''). See 
Initiation of Five-year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 70 FR 38101 (July 1, 
2005). On the basis of Notices of Intent to Participate, adequate 
substantive responses filed on behalf of domestic interested parties, 
and a 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 likely lead to the continuation or 
recurrence of dumping. The dumping margins are identified in the Final 
Results of Review section of this notice.

EFFECTIVE DATE: November 7, 2005.
