SUMMARY: On December 1, 2006, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty order on folding gift boxes from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’), pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’). See Initiation of Five-year (‘‘Sunset’’) Reviews, 71 FR 69545 (December 1, 2006) (‘‘Sunset Initiation’’); see also Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Folding Gift Boxes From the People’s Republic of China, 67 FR 864 (January 8, 2002) (‘‘Order’’). Based on the notice of intent to participate and response filed by the domestic interested party, and the lack of response from respondent interested parties, the Department conducted an expedited sunset review of the Order pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 C.F.R. 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2). As a result of this sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of the Order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the levels indicated in the ‘‘Final Results of Review’’ section of this notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 1, 2006, the Department initiated a sunset review of the Order on folding gift boxes from the PRC pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See Sunset Initiation. On December 15, 2006, the Department timely received a notice of intent to participate from Simkins Industries, Inc. (‘‘Simkins’’), pursuant to 19 C.F.R. 351.218(d)(1)(i). Simkins claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as a domestic producer of subject merchandise. On January 3, 2007, the Department received a request from Harvard Folding Box Company, Inc. (‘‘Harvard Box’’), asking to be substituted for Simkins as the domestic interested party in the sunset review. Both Simkins and Harvard Box are represented by the same counsel. Harvard Box also filed a substantive response within the 30-day deadline as specified in 19 C.F.R. 351.218(d)(3)(i). The Department did not receive any objections to Harvard Box’s request to be substituted for Simkins. The Department did not receive a substantive response from any respondent interested party. As a result, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 C.F.R. 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department conducted an expedited sunset review of the Order. Scope Of The Order The products covered by the order are certain folding gift boxes. Folding gift boxes are a type of folding or knock– down carton manufactured from paper or paperboard. Folding gift boxes are produced from a variety of recycled and virgin paper or paperboard materials, including, but not limited to, clay– coated paper or paperboard and kraft (bleached or unbleached) paper or paperboard. The scope of the order excludes gift boxes manufactured from paper or paperboard of a thickness of more than 0.8 millimeters, corrugated paperboard, or paper mache. The scope of the order also excludes those gift boxes for which no side of the box, when assembled, is at least nine inches in length. Folding gift boxes included in the scope of the order are typically PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16765 decorated with a holiday motif using various processes, including printing, embossing, debossing, and foil stamping, but may also be plain white or printed with a single color. The subject merchandise includes folding gift boxes, with or without handles, whether finished or unfinished, and whether in one–piece or multi–piece configuration. One–piece gift boxes are die–cut or otherwise formed so that the top, bottom, and sides form a single, contiguous unit. Two–piece gift boxes are those with a folded bottom and a folded top as separate pieces. Folding gift boxes are generally packaged in shrink–wrap, cellophane, or other packaging materials, in single or multi– box packs for sale to the retail customer. The scope of the order excludes folding gift boxes that have a retailer’s name, logo, trademark or similar company information printed prominently on the box’s top exterior (such folding gift boxes are often known as ‘‘not–forresale’’ gift boxes or ‘‘give–away’’ gift boxes and may be provided by department and specialty stores at no charge to their retail customers). The scope of the order also excludes folding gift boxes where both the outside of the box is a single color and the box is not packaged in shrink–wrap, cellophane, other resin–based packaging films, or paperboard. Imports of the subject merchandise are classified under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) subheadings 4819.20.0040 and 4819.50.4060. These subheadings also cover products that are outside the scope of the order.

Folding Gift Boxes from the People's Republic of China: Final 
Results of the Expedited Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On December 1, 2006, the Department of Commerce 
(``Department'') initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty 
order on folding gift boxes from the People's Republic of China 
(``PRC''), pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``Act''). See Initiation of Five-year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 71 
FR 69545 (December 1, 2006) (``Sunset Initiation''); see also Notice of 
Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Folding Gift Boxes From the People's 
Republic of China, 67 FR 864 (January 8, 2002) (``Order''). Based on 
the notice of intent to participate and response filed by the domestic 
interested party, and the lack of response from respondent interested 
parties, the Department conducted an expedited sunset review of the 
Order pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 C.F.R. 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2). As a result of this sunset review, the 
Department finds that revocation of the Order would likely lead to 
continuation or recurrence of dumping at the levels indicated in the 
``Final Results of Review'' section of this notice.

EFFECTIVE DATE: April 5, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Juanita H. Chen or Robert A. Bolling;

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 1, 2006, the Department initiated a sunset review of 
the Order on folding gift boxes from the PRC pursuant to section 751(c) 
of the Act. See Sunset Initiation. On December 15, 2006, the Department 
timely received a notice of intent to participate from Simkins 
Industries, Inc. (``Simkins''), pursuant to 19 C.F.R. 351.218(d)(1)(i). 
Simkins claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the 
Act as a domestic producer of subject merchandise. On January 3, 2007, 
the Department received a request from Harvard Folding Box Company, 
Inc. (``Harvard Box''), asking to be substituted for Simkins as the 
domestic interested party in the sunset review. Both Simkins and 
Harvard Box are represented by the same counsel. Harvard Box also filed 
a substantive response within the 30-day deadline as specified in 19 
C.F.R. 351.218(d)(3)(i). The Department did not receive any objections 
to Harvard Box's request to be substituted for Simkins. The Department 
did not receive a substantive response from any respondent interested 
party. As a result, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 
C.F.R. 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department conducted an expedited 
sunset review of the Order.

Scope Of The Order

    The products covered by the order are certain folding gift boxes. 
Folding gift boxes are a type of folding or knock-down carton 
manufactured from paper or paperboard. Folding gift boxes are produced 
from a variety of recycled and virgin paper or paperboard materials, 
including, but not limited to, clay-coated paper or paperboard and 
kraft (bleached or unbleached) paper or paperboard. The scope of the 
order excludes gift boxes manufactured from paper or paperboard of a 
thickness of more than 0.8 millimeters, corrugated paperboard, or paper 
mache. The scope of the order also excludes those gift boxes for which 
no side of the box, when assembled, is at least nine inches in length.
    Folding gift boxes included in the scope of the order are typically 
decorated with a holiday motif using various processes, including 
printing, embossing, debossing, and foil stamping, but may also be 
plain white or printed with a single color. The subject merchandise 
includes folding gift boxes, with or without handles, whether finished 
or unfinished, and whether in one-piece or multi-piece configuration. 
One-piece gift boxes are die-cut or otherwise formed so that the top, 
bottom, and sides form a single, contiguous unit. Two-piece gift boxes 
are those with a folded bottom and a folded top as separate pieces. 
Folding gift boxes are generally packaged in shrink-wrap, cellophane, 
or other packaging materials, in single or multi-box packs for sale to 
the retail customer. The scope of the order excludes folding gift boxes 
that have a retailer's name, logo, trademark or similar company 
information printed prominently on the box's top exterior (such folding 
gift boxes are often known as ``not-for-resale'' gift boxes or ``give-
away'' gift boxes and may be provided by department and specialty 
stores at no charge to their retail customers). The scope of the order 
also excludes folding gift boxes where both the outside of the box is a 
single color and the box is not packaged in shrink-wrap, cellophane, 
other resin-based packaging films, or paperboard.
    Imports of the subject merchandise are classified under Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') subheadings 
4819.20.0040 and 4819.50.4060. These subheadings also cover products 
that are outside the scope of the order. Furthermore, although the 
HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, 
our written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.
