SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 1, 2007, the Department published the notice of 
initiation of the sunset review of the antidumping duty order on 
persulfates from the PRC pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). See Initiation of Five-year 
(``Sunset'') Reviews, 72 FR 61861 (November 1, 2007) (``Initiation 
Notice''); see also, Amended Antidumping Duty Order: Persulfates From 
the People's Republic of China, 62 FR 39212 (July 22, 1997) 
(``Order''). As a result of its review, the Department found that 
revocation of the AD order would likely lead to continuation or 
recurrence of dumping and notified the ITC of the margins likely to 
prevail were the order revoked. See Persulfates from the People's 
Republic of China: Notice of Final Results of Expedited Sunset Review 
of Antidumping Duty Order, 73 FR 11868 (March 5, 2008) (``Persulfates 
Final''). On March 31, 2008, the ITC determined, pursuant to section 
751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the AD order on persulfates from 
the PRC would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material 
injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably 
foreseeable time. See USITC Publication 3988 Inv. No. 731-TA- 749 
(Review) (March 2007).

are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written

Continuation of Order

    As a result of the determinations by the Department and the ITC 
that revocation of the AD order on persulfates from the PRC would 
likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and material 
injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to section 
751(d)(2) of the Act, the Department hereby orders the continuation of 
the AD order on persulfates from the PRC. U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection will continue to collect antidumping duty cash deposits at 
the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject 
merchandise. This review covers imports from all manufacturers and 
exporters of persulfates from the PRC.
