party (Indorama Chemical (Thailand) Ltd. (``Indorama'')) within the 30-
day deadline specified in the Department's regulations under section 
351.218(d)(3)(i). On May 8, 2006, the domestic interested party filed 
rebuttal comments to Indorama's substantive response.
    On May 23, 2006, the Department determined that respondent 
interested party accounted for more than 50 percent of exports by 
volume of the subject merchandise and, therefore, submitted an adequate 
substantive response to the Department's Notice of Initiation. See 
Memorandum to Susan H. Kuhbach, Director, AD/CVD Operations, Office 1 
``Adequacy Determination in Antidumping Duty Sunset Review of Furfuryl 
Alcohol From Thailand,'' (May 23, 2006). In accordance with section 
351.218(e)(2)(i) of the Department's regulations, the Department 
determined to conduct a full sunset review of this antidumping duty 
order. On July 14, 2006, in accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B) of the 
Act, the Department extended the deadlines for the preliminary and 
final results of this sunset review by 90 days from the originally 
scheduled dates. The final results in the full sunset review of this 
antidumping duty order are scheduled on or before February 27, 2007.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by this order is furfuryl alcohol 
(C4H3OCH2OH). Furfuryl alcohol is a primary alcohol, and is colorless 
or pale yellow in appearance. It is used in the manufacture of resins 
and as a wetting agent and solvent for coating resins, nitrocellulose, 
cellulose acetate, and other soluble dyes. The product subject to this 
order is classifiable under subheading 2932.13.00 of the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS''). Although the HTSUS 
subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, our 
written description of the scope of this proceeding is dispositive.

Administration, dated October 20, 2006 (``Decision Memo''), which is 
hereby adopted by this notice. The issues discussed in the Decision

to lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping. As a result of this 
determination, the Department preliminarily intends to revoke the 
antidumping duty order on furfuryl alcohol from Thailand, pursuant to 
section 751(d)(2) of the Act. Consistent with 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i)

People's Republic of China and Thailand, 66 FR 22519 (May 4, 2001). We 
will notify the U.S. International Trade Commission (``ITC'') of our 
final results. We do not intend, however, to report a rate to the ITC 
as a determination by the Department that revocation of the order would 
not lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping will result in 
revocation of the order. Moreover, the ITC has already ruled in this 
proceeding.
    If the antidumping duty order is revoked, the Department will 
instruct the U.S. Customs and Border Protection to liquidate without 
regard to dumping duties entries of the subject merchandise entered or 
withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after May 4, 2006, (the 
effective date), and to discontinue collection of cash deposits of 
antidumping duties.

notice. Rebuttal briefs, which must be limited to issues raised in the 
case briefs, may be filed no later than 5 days after the time limit for 
filing the case briefs, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.309(d)(1). Any 
hearing, if requested, will be held two days after rebuttal briefs are 
due, unless the Department alters the date, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.310(d)(1). The Department intends to issue a notice of final 
results of this second sunset review, which will include the results of 
its analysis of issues raised in any such briefs, no later than 
February 27, 2007.
    This five-year (``sunset'') review and notice are in accordance 
with sections 751(c), 752(c), and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
