Antidumping Duty Order on Furfuryl Alcohol from Thailand; Final 
Results,'' to David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import 
Administration, dated February 27, 2007 (``Decision Memo''), which is 
hereby adopted by this notice. The issues discussed in the Decision 
Memo include the likelihood of continuation or recurrence of dumping 
and the magnitude of the margin likely to prevail if the antidumping 
duty order were revoked. Parties can find a complete discussion of all 
issues raised in this sunset review and the corresponding 
recommendations in this public memorandum, which is on file in room B-

Final Results of Review and Revocation

    The Department determines that revocation of the antidumping duty 
order on furfuryl alcohol from Thailand is not likely to lead to a 
continuation or recurrence of dumping. Consequently, the Department is 
revoking the antidumping duty order on furfuryl alcohol from Thailand, 
pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(1)(ii). 
Consistent with 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i) and section 751(c)(6)(A)(iii) 
of the Act, this revocation will be effective May 4, 2006, the fifth 
anniversary of the date of publication in the Federal Register of the 
notice of continuation. See Notice of Continuation of Antidumping Duty 
Orders: Furfuryl Alcohol from the 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.\1\ Moreover, the ITC has already ruled in 
this proceeding.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\Contrary to the ITC's statement that the order on furfuryl 
alcohol from Thailand remains in place, the Department's sunset 
determination in this proceeding will, in fact, result in the order 
being revoked. See ITC News Release 06-093 (September 1, 2006) 
concerning Inv. Nos. 731-TA-703 and 705 (Second Review).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department will instruct 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merchandise entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or 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.
    This sunset review and notice are in accordance with sections 
751(c), 752, and 777(i)(1) of the Act. This notice serves as a final 
reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order 
(``APO'') of their responsibility concerning the disposition of 
proprietary material disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.305. Timely notification of return/destruction of APO materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to
