SUMMARY: On May 3, 2010, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) initiated sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on chlorinated isocyanurates (‘‘chlorinated isos’’) from Spain and the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). Based on the notices of intent to participate and adequate responses filed by the domestic interested parties, and the lack of response from any respondent interested party, the Department conducted expedited (120-day) sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on chlorinated isos from Spain and the PRC, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: 1 See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Chlorinated Isocyanurates from the People’s Republic of China, 70 FR 36561 (June 24, 2005) (‘‘PRC Order’’); see also Chlorinated Isocyanurates from Spain: Notice of Antidumping Duty Order, 70 FR 36562 (June 24, 2005) (‘‘Spain Order’’).

As a result of these sunset reviews, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, at the levels indicated in the ‘‘Final Results of Sunset Review’’ section of this notice, infra. EFFECTIVE DATE: August 13, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 24, 2005, the Department published the antidumping duty orders on chlorinated isos from Spain and the PRC.1 On May 3, 2010, the Department published the notice of initiation of the first sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on chlorinated isos from Spain and the PRC, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act.2 On May 18, 2010, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1), the Department received timely and complete notices of intent to participate in the sunset reviews from Clearon Corporation and Occidental Chemical Corporation, domestic producers of chlorinated isos (collectively ‘‘Petitioners’’). On June 2, 2010, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3), Petitioners filed timely and adequate substantive responses within 30 days after the date of publication of the Sunset Initiation. The Department did not receive substantive responses from any respondent interested party with respect to the orders on chlorinated isos from Spain or the PRC. 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 expedited (120-day) sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on chlorinated isos from Spain and the PRC. SCOPE OF THE ORDERS: The products covered by the orders are chlorinated isos, which are derivatives of cyanuric acid, described as chlorinated s–triazine triones. There are three primary chemical compositions of chlorinated isos: (1) trichloroisocyanuric acid (Cl3(NCO)3), (2) sodium dichloroisocyanurate (dihydrate) (NaCl2(NCO)3(2H2O), and (3) sodium dichloroisocyanurate 2 See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 75 FR 23240 (May 3, 2010) (‘‘Sunset Initiation’’). 3 The Spain Order currently covers HTSUS subheadings 2933.69.6015, 2933.69.6021, and 2933.69.6050, while the PRC Order currently covers PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (anhydrous) (NaCl2(NCO)3). Chlorinated isos are available in powder, granular, and tableted forms. The orders cover all chlorinated isos. Chlorinated isos are currently classifiable under subheadings 2933.69.6015, 2933.69.6021, 2933.69.6050, 3808.40.50, 3808.50.40 and 3808.94.50.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’).3 The tariff classification 2933.69.6015 covers sodium dichloroisocyanurates (anhydrous and dihydrate forms) and trichloroisocyanuric acid. The tariff classifications 2933.69.6021 and 2933.69.6050 represent basket categories that include chlorinated isos and other compounds including an unfused triazine ring. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this order is dispositive. ANALYSIS OF COMMENTS RECEIVED: A complete discussion of all issues raised in these sunset reviews is provided in the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by this notice.

Yang, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Ronald K. Lorentzen, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated concurrently with this notice (‘‘I&D Memo’’).

SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:35 Aug 12, 2010 Jkt 220001 The permits and related documents are available for review upon written request or by appointment in the following offices: See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kristy Beard or Carrie Hubard at (301)713–2289. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 12, 2009, notice was published in the Federal Register (74 FR 58243) that a request for a permit to conduct scientific research on marine mammals had been submitted by the above-named applicant. The requested permit has been issued under the authority of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.), the regulations governing the taking and importing of marine mammals (50 CFR part 216), the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), and the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR parts 222–226). A five-year permit was issued to Dr. Au to investigate the population dynamics and behavior of cetaceans around Hawaii and the Pacific, to determine aspects of the behavior and use of the acoustic environment by large whales, and to determine the effects of noise on behavior of cetaceans around Hawaii. The permit authorizes researchers to conduct behavioral observations, photo-identification, genetic sampling, suction-cup tagging, acoustic recording, and acoustic playbacks from vessels on: Blainville’s beaked whale (Mesoplodon densirostris), Cuvier’s beaked whale (Ziphius cavirostris), killer whale (Orcinus orca), humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae), dwarf sperm whale (Kogia sima), pygmy sperm whale (K. breviceps), short-finned pilot whale (Globicephala macrorhynchus), false killer whale (Pseudorca crassidens), ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 24.83 24.83 75.78 285.63 137.69 137.69 137.69 137.69 285.63 pygmy killer whale (Feresa attenuata), melon-headed whale (Peponocephala electra), long-beaked common dolphin (Delphinus capensis), short-beaked common dolphin (D. delphis), striped dolphin (Stenella coeruleoalba), spinner dolphin (S. longirostris), pantropical spotted dolphin (S. attenuata), bottlenose dolphin (Turisiops truncatus), Risso’s dolphin (Grampus griseus), Pacific white-sided dolphin (Lagenorhynchus obliquidens), and rough-toothed dolphin (Steno bredanensis). In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an environmental assessment (EA) was prepared analyzing the effects of the permitted activities on the human environment. Based on the analyses in the EA, NMFS determined that issuance of the permit will not significantly impact the quality of the human environment and that preparation of an environmental impact statement was not required. That determination is documented in a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), signed on July 14, 2010. Issuance of the permit, as required by the ESA, was based on a finding that such permit: (1) was applied for in good faith; (2) will not operate to the disadvantage of such endangered species; and (3) is consistent with the purposes and policies set forth in section 2 of the ESA.

Chlorinated Isocyanurates from Spain and the People's Republic of 
China: Final Results of the Expedited Sunset Reviews of the Antidumping 
Duty Orders

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On May 3, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders 
on chlorinated isocyanurates (``chlorinated isos'') from Spain and the 
People's Republic of China (``PRC'') pursuant to section 751(c) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). Based on the notices of 
intent to participate and adequate responses filed by the domestic 
interested parties, and the lack of response from any respondent 
interested party, the Department conducted expedited (120-day) sunset 
reviews of the antidumping duty orders on chlorinated isos from Spain 
and the PRC, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2). As a result of these sunset reviews, the 
Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty orders would 
be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, at the 
levels indicated in the ``Final Results of Sunset Review'' section of 
this notice, infra.
