AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On May 3, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated the sunset review of the antidumping duty order 
on greige polyester cotton printcloth from the People's Republic of 
China (``PRC''). Because the domestic interested parties did not 
participate in this sunset review, the Department is revoking this 
antidumping duty order.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jennifer Moats, AD/CVD Operations, 
Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-5047.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 16, 1983, the Department issued 
an antidumping duty order on greige polyester cotton printcloth from 
the PRC. See Greige Polyester Printcloth From the People's Republic of 
China--Antidumping Duty Order, 48 FR 41614 (September 16, 1983). On 
June 27, 2005, the Department published its most recent continuation of 
the order. See Continuation of the Antidumping Duty Order; Greige 
Polyester Cotton Printcloth from the People's Republic of China, 70 FR 
36927 (June 27, 2005). On May 3, 2010, the Department initiated a 
sunset review of this order. See Initiation of Five-Year (``Sunset'') 
Review, 75 FR 23240 (May 3, 2010).
    We did not receive a notice of intent to participate from domestic 
interested parties in this sunset review by the deadline date. As a 
result, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(A), the Department 
determined that no domestic interested party intends to participate in 
the sunset review, and on May 24, 2010, we notified the International 
Trade Commission, in writing, that we intended to issue a final 
determination revoking this antidumping duty order. See 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(2).
    Scope of the Order: The merchandise subject to this antidumping 
order is greige polyester cotton printcloth, other than 80 x 80 type. 
Greige polyester cotton printcloth is of chief weight cotton,\1\ 
unbleached and uncolored printcloth. The term ``printcloth'' refers to 
plain woven fabric, not napped, not fancy or figured, of singles yarn, 
not combed, of average yarn number 43 to 68,\2\ weighing not more than 
6 ounces per square yard, of a total count of more than 85 yarns per 
square inch, of which the total count of the warp yarns per inch and 
the total count of the filling yarns per inch are each less than 62 
percent of the total count of the warp and filling yarns per square 
inch. This merchandise is currently classifiable under Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule (``HTSUS'') item 5210.11.6060. The HTSUS item number is 
provided for convenience and customs purposes; however, the written 
description remains dispositive.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ In the scope from the original investigation, the Department 
defined the subject merchandise by chief value (i.e., the subject 
merchandise was of chief value cotton). In later reviews of this 
Order, the Department has incorporated the U.S Customs Service's 
conversion to chief weight (i.e., the subject merchandise is of 
chief weight cotton). See Continuation of the Antidumping Duty 
Order; Greige Polyester Cotton Printcloth from the People's Republic 
of China, 70 FR 36927 (June 27, 2005).
    \2\ Under the English system, this average yarn number count 
translates to 26 to 40. The average yarn number counts reported in 
previous scope descriptions by the Department are based on the 
English system of yarn number counts. Per phone conversations with 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') officials, CBP now 
relies on the metric system to establish average yarn number counts. 
Thus, the 26 to 40 average yarn number count under the English 
system translates to a 43 to 68 average yarn number count under the 
metric system. See Continuation of the Antidumping Duty Order; 
Greige Polyester Cotton Printcloth from the People's Republic of 
China, 70 FR 36927 (June 27, 2005).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Determination to Revoke: Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(A) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act'') and 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(3), if no domestic interested party files a 
notice of intent to participate, the Department shall, within 90 days 
after the initiation of the review, issue a final determination 
revoking the order. Because the domestic interested parties did not 
file a notice of intent to participate in this sunset review, the 
Department finds that no domestic interested party is participating in 
this sunset review. Therefore, consistent with 19 CFR 351.222(i)(1)(i) 
and section 751(c)(3)(A) of the Act, we are revoking this antidumping 
duty order. The effective date of revocation is June 27, 2010, the 
fifth anniversary of the date of publication in the Federal Register of 
the most recent notice of continuation of this antidumping duty order.
    Effective Date of Revocation: Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(A) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i), the Department intends to issue 
instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, 15 days after 
publication of this notice, to terminate the suspension of liquidation 
of the merchandise subject to this order entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, on or after June 27, 2010. Entries of subject merchandise 
prior to the effective date of revocation will continue to be subject 
to suspension of liquidation and antidumping duty deposit requirements. 
The Department will complete any pending administrative reviews of this
