The domestic 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, under section 771(9)(D) of the Act as a certified union or recognized union or group of workers which is representative of an industry engaged in the manufacture, production, or wholesale in the United States of a domestic like product, and under section 771(9)(E) of the Act as a trade or business association, a majority of whose members manufacture, produce, or wholesale a domestic like product in the United States. We received a complete substantive response from the domestic interested parties within the 30–day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i).

Scope of the Order: The products covered by this order are cement and cement clinker from Japan. Cement is a hydraulic cement and the primary component of concrete. Cement clinker, an intermediate material produced when manufacturing cement, has no use other than grinding into finished cement. Microfine cement was specifically excluded from the antidumping duty order. Cement is currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) item number 2523.29, and cement clinker is currently classifiable under HTS item number 2523.10. Cement has also been entered under HTS item number 2523.90 as ‘‘other hydraulic cements.’’ The Department made two scope rulings regarding subject merchandise. See Scope Rulings, 57 FR 19602 (May 7, 1992), classes G and H of oil well cement are within the scope of the order, and Scope Rulings, 58 FR 27542 (May 10, 1993), ‘‘Nittetsu Super Fine’’ cement is not within the scope of the order. The order remains in effect for all manufacturers, producers, and exporters of cement from Japan. The HTS item numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes.

See Paper Clips from the People’s Republic of China; Notice of Final Results of Expedited Sunset Review of Antidumping Duty Order, 70 FR 67433 (November 7, 2005). On January 17, 2006, the Commission determined, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the antidumping duty order on paper clips from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Paper Clips from China, 71 FR 3541 (January 23, 2006), USITC Publication 3834 (January 2006) (Investigation No. 731–TA–663 (Second Review)).

Specifically excluded from the scope of this order are plastic and vinyl covered paper clips, butterfly clips, binder clips, or other paper fasteners that are not made wholly of wire of base metal and are covered under a separate subheading of the HTSUS. Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this order is dispositive. Determination As a result of the determinations by the Department and the Commission that revocation of this antidumping duty order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to sections 751(d)(2)(A) and (B) of the Act, the Department hereby orders the continuation of the antidumping duty order on paper clips from China. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect antidumping duty deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise. The effective date of the continuation of this order is the date of publication in the Federal Register of this Notice of Continuation. Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act, the Department intends to initiate the next five-year review of this antidumping order not later than January 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background:

    On October 3, 2005, the Department initiated the second sunset 
review of the antidumping duty order on cement from Japan pursuant to 
section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-Year (``Sunset'') 
Reviews, 70 FR 57560 (October 3, 2005). The Department received a 
notice of intent to participate from the Committee for Fairly Traded 
Japanese Cement, the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, Iron 
Ship Builders, Blacksmiths, Forgers & Helpers, the United Steel, Paper 
& Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and 
Service Workers International Union, and the Local Lodge 93 of the 
International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers 
(collectively, the domestic interested parties) within the deadline 
specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i) pertaining to sunset reviews. The 
domestic 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, under section 
771(9)(D) of the Act as a certified union or recognized union or group 
of workers which is representative of an industry engaged in the 
manufacture, production, or wholesale in the United States of a 
domestic like product, and under section 771(9)(E) of the Act as a 
trade or business association, a majority of whose members manufacture, 
produce, or wholesale a domestic like product in the United States. We 
received a complete substantive response from the domestic interested 
parties within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(3)(i). We received no responses from the 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 has 
conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of the order.

Scope of the Order:

    The products covered by this order are cement and cement clinker 
from Japan. Cement is a hydraulic cement and the primary component of 
concrete. Cement clinker, an intermediate material produced when 
manufacturing cement, has no use other than grinding into finished 
cement. Microfine cement was specifically excluded from the antidumping 
duty order. Cement is currently classifiable under the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule (HTS) item number 2523.29, and cement clinker is 
currently classifiable under HTS item number 2523.10. Cement has also 
been entered under HTS item number 2523.90 as ``other hydraulic 
cements.'' The Department made two scope rulings regarding subject 
merchandise. See Scope Rulings, 57 FR 19602 (May 7, 1992), classes G 
and H of oil well cement are within the scope of the order, and Scope 
Rulings, 58 FR 27542 (May 10, 1993), ``Nittetsu Super Fine'' cement is 
not within the scope of the order. The order remains in effect for all 
manufacturers, producers, and exporters of cement from Japan.
    The HTS item numbers are provided for convenience and customs 
purposes. The written product description remains dispositive as to the 
scope of the product coverage.

Analysis of Comments Received:

    All issues raised in this review are addressed in the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum from Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary 
for Import Administration, to David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for 
Import Administration, dated January 31, 2006, which is hereby adopted 
by this notice. The issues discussed in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum include the likelihood of continuation or recurrence of 
dumping and the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail if the order 
is revoked. Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues raised 
in this review and the corresponding recommendations in this public

Final Results of Review:

    We determine that revocation of the antidumping duty order on 
cement and cement clinker from Japan would be likely to lead to 
continuation or recurrence of dumping at the following weighted-average 
percentage margins:

    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely
