See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 12310 (March 24, 2009). The preliminary results for this administrative review are currently due no later than October 31, 2009. Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results Stainless Steel Bar From India: Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to issue the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an antidumping duty order for which a review is requested and issue the final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 days and 180 days, respectively. Due to the complexity of the issues in this case, including issues regarding company affiliations, and the lengthy supplemental questionnaire responses pending, it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the original time limit (i.e., October 31, 2009). Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results to no later than March 1, 2010,1 in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Barium Chloride From the People's Republic of China: Final 
Results of Expedited Third Sunset Review of Antidumping Duty Order

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 29, 2009.
SUMMARY: On July 1, 2009, the Department of Commerce (the 
``Department'') initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty order 
on barium chloride from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). On 
the basis of a notice of intent to participate and an adequate 
substantive response from domestic interested parties, as well as a 
lack of response from respondent interested parties, the Department 
conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review. As a result of the 
sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping 
duty order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of 
dumping. The dumping margins are identified in the Final Results of 
Review section of this notice.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Melissa Blackledge or Howard Smith, 
AD/CVD Operations, Office 4, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 1, 2009, the Department published the notice of initiation 
of the third sunset review of the antidumping duty order on barium 
chloride from the PRC pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (``the Act''). See Initiation of Five-year 
(``Sunset'') Review, 74 FR 31412 (July 1, 2009). On July 6, 2009, the 
Department received a notice of intent to participate from Chemical 
Products Corporation (``CPC''), a domestic interested party, within the 
deadline specified in section

[[Page 55815]]

351.218(d)(1)(i) of the Department's regulations. CPC claimed 
interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as a 
domestic producer of barium chloride in the United States. On July 31, 
2009, the Department received a substantive response from CPC within 
the deadline specified in section 351.218(d)(3)(i) of the Department's 
regulations. The Department did not receive a response from any 
respondent interested party to this proceeding. As a result, pursuant 
to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and section 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2) 
of the Department's regulations, the Department determined to conduct 
an expedited review of the order.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the order is barium chloride, a chemical 
compound having the formulas BaCl2 or BaCl2-2H2O, currently 
classifiable under item number 2827.39.45.00 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'').\1\ Although the HTSUS item 
number is provided for convenience and for U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection purposes, the written description remains dispositive.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations, to Ronald K. Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary for 
Import Administration, which is dated concurrently with this notice, 
and hereby adopted by this notice. The issues discussed in the Decision 
Memorandum include the likelihood of continuation or recurrence of 
dumping and the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail if the order 
were revoked. Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues 
raised in this review and the corresponding recommendations in this

Final Results of Review

    Pursuant to section 752(c) of the Act, we determine that revocation 
of the antidumping duty order on barium chloride from the PRC would be 
likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the 
following weighted-average percentage margin:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Exporter/Manufacturer                   Margin (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
PRC-Wide............................................              155.50
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 section 351.305 of the 
Department's regulations. Timely notification of the return or 
destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order 
is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms 
of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    We are issuing and publishing the results and notice in accordance 
with sections 751(c), 752(c), and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
