SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On January 26, 2010, pursuant to a request from FENC, we initiated 
a changed-circumstances review of the antidumping duty order on 
polyester staple fiber from Taiwan to determine whether FENC was the 
successor-in-interest to FET after the company changed its name. 
Concurrent with the initiation, we preliminarily determined that FENC 
is the successor-in-interest to FET. See Polyester Staple Fiber From 
Taiwan: Initiation and Preliminary Results of Changed-Circumstances 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 4044 (January 26, 2010). 
We did not receive any comments from interested parties. We did not 
hold a hearing as one was not requested. Based on our analysis, we are 
now affirming our preliminary results.

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by the order is certain polyester staple fiber 
(PSF). PSF is defined as synthetic staple fibers, not carded, combed or 
otherwise processed for spinning, of polyesters measuring 3.3 decitex 
(3 denier, inclusive) or more in diameter. This merchandise is cut to 
lengths varying from one inch (25 mm) to five inches (127 mm). The 
merchandise subject to the order may be coated, usually with a silicon 
or other finish, or not coated. PSF is generally used as stuffing in 
sleeping bags, mattresses, ski jackets, comforters, cushions, pillows, 
and furniture. Merchandise of less than 3.3 decitex (less than 3 
denier) currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (HTSUS) at subheading 5503.20.00.20 is specifically 
excluded from the order. Also specifically excluded from the order are 
PSF of 10 to 18 denier that are cut to lengths of 6 to 8 inches (fibers 
used in the manufacture of carpeting). In addition, low-melt PSF is 
excluded from the order. Low-melt PSF is defined as a bi-component 
fiber with an outer sheath that melts at a significantly lower 
temperature than its inner core.
    The merchandise subject to the order is currently classifiable in 
the HTSUS at subheadings 5503.20.00.45 and 5503.20.00.65. Although the 
HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, 
the written description of the merchandise subject to the order is 
dispositive.

Final Results of the Review

    For the reasons stated in the preliminary results, we continue to 
find that FENC is the successor-in-interest to FET and, as a result, 
FENC should be accorded the same treatment as FET for the purposes of 
the antidumping duty order on polyester staple fiber from Taiwan. We 
will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash 
deposits at 1.97 percent, the weighted-average dumping margin we found 
for FET in the most recently completed review. See Certain Polyester 
Staple Fiber From Taiwan: Final Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review, 74 FR 18348 (April 22, 2009).

order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and
