SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 1, 2009, the Department initiated a sunset review of the order on THFA pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See Sunset Initiation, 74 FR 31412. On July 14, 2009, the Department received a timely notice of intent to participate in the sunset review from PAK, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). In accordance with 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(ii)(A), PAK claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as a producer of the domestic like product. On July 29, 2009, PAK filed a substantive response in the sunset review, within the 30-day deadline as specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). The Department did not receive a substantive response from any respondent interested party in the sunset review.

Scope of the Order The product covered by this order is tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol (C5H10O2) (‘‘THFA’’). THFA, a primary alcohol, is a clear, water white to pale yellow liquid. THFA is a member of the heterocyclic compounds known as furans and is miscible with water and soluble in many common organic solvents. THFA is currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedules of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) under subheading 2932.13.00.00.

See the Department’s memorandum entitled, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results in the Expedited Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Tetrahydrofurfuryl Alcohol from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated October 29, 2009 (‘‘I&D Memo’’). The issues discussed in the accompanying I&D Memo include the likelihood of continuation or recurrence of dumping and the magnitude of the dumping margin likely to prevail if the Order was revoked. Parties can obtain a public copy of the I&D Memo on file in the Central Records Unit, room 1117, of the main Commerce building. In addition, a complete public copy of the I&D Memo can be accessed directly on the Web at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn. The paper copy and electronic version of the I&D Memo are identical in content. Final Results of Sunset Review The Department determines that revocation of the Order on THFA would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping. The Department also determines that the dumping margins likely to prevail if the order was revoked are as follows: Manufacturers/Exporters/ Producers Qingdao Wenken (F.T.Z.)
