tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol (``THFA'') from the People's Republic of 
China (``PRC'') pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930,

2009, Penn A Kem LLC (formerly, Penn Specialty Chemicals) (``PAK''), 
the petitioner in the THFA investigation, notified the Department that 
it intended to participate in the sunset review. The Department did not 
receive a substantive response from any respondent party. Based on the

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. As a result, 
pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department conducted an expedited sunset 
review of the Order.

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. Although the HTS subheadings are provided for 
convenience and for customs purposes, the Department's written 
description of the merchandise subject to the order is dispositive.

addressed in the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum, which is 
hereby adopted by this notice. See the Department's memorandum

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prevail if the Order was revoked.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
