SUMMARY: On July 9, 2010, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) initiated the sunset review of the antidumping finding on polychloroprene rubber from Japan. Because the domestic interested parties did not participate in this sunset review, the Department is revoking this antidumping finding.

The Department’s written description of the scope remains dispositive. 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Border Protection, to terminate the suspension of liquidation of the merchandise subject to this finding entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, on or after August 4, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 6, 1973, the Department of the Treasury published in the Federal Register the antidumping finding on polychloroprene rubber from Japan. See Polychloroprene Rubber from Japan, 38 FR 33593 (December 6, 1973). On August 4, 2005, the Department published its most recent continuation of the finding. See Continuation of Antidumping Duty Order; Polychloroprene Rubber from Japan, 70 FR 44893 (August 4, 2005). On July 9, 2010, the Department initiated a sunset review of this finding. See Initiation of Five-year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 75 FR 39494 (July 9, 2010). The domestic interested parties did not file a notice of intent to participate in this sunset review. 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 July 29, 2010 we notified the International Trade Commission, in writing, that we intended to revoke this antidumping finding. See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(2). Scope of the Finding: 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the original time frame because comments from interested parties have necessitated the solicitation and subsequent analysis of additional information from the respondent, New–Tec Integration (Xiamen) Co., Ltd. This additional information covers a wide range of issues and is extensive. The Department requires additional time to gather and analyze the additional information. Thus, the Department finds it is not practicable to complete this review within the original time limit (i.e., September 9, 2010). Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review by 120 days (i.e., until January 7, 2011), in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). We intend to issue the final results no later than 120 days after publication of the preliminary results notice. This extension is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On July 9, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated the sunset review of the antidumping finding on 
polychloroprene rubber from Japan. Because the domestic interested 
parties did not participate in this sunset review, the Department is 
revoking this antidumping finding.

EFFECTIVE DATE: August 4, 2010

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Martha Douthit, AD/CVD Operations, 
Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, 
Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-5050.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 6, 1973, the Department of the 
Treasury published in the Federal Register the antidumping finding on 
polychloroprene rubber from Japan. See Polychloroprene Rubber from 
Japan, 38 FR 33593 (December 6, 1973). On August 4, 2005, the 
Department published its most recent continuation of the finding. See 
Continuation of Antidumping Duty Order; Polychloroprene Rubber from 
Japan, 70 FR 44893 (August 4, 2005). On July 9, 2010, the Department 
initiated a sunset review of this finding. See Initiation of Five-year 
(``Sunset'') Review, 75 FR 39494 (July 9, 2010).
    The domestic interested parties did not file a notice of intent to 
participate in this sunset review. 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 
July 29, 2010 we notified the International Trade Commission, in 
writing, that we intended to revoke this antidumping finding. See 19 
CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(2).

Scope of the Finding:

    Imports covered by the finding are shipments of polychloroprene 
rubber, an oil resistant synthetic rubber also known as polymerized 
chlorobutadiene or neoprene, currently classifiable under items 
4002.41.00, 4002.49.00, 4003.00.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of 
the United States (``HTSUS'').\1\ HTSUS item numbers are provided for 
convenience and customs purpose. The Department's written description 
of the scope remains dispositive.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Polychloroprene Rubber from Japan: Final Changed 
Circumstances Review and Determination to Revoke Finding in Part, 71 
FR 57470 (September 29, 2006), in which the Department determined to 
revoke the antidumping finding with respect to the following 
products: (1) aqueous dispersions of polychloroprenes that are 
dipolymers of chloroprene and methacrylic acid, where the dispersion 
has a pH of 8 or lower (this category is limited to aqueous 
dispersions of these polymers and does not include aqueous 
dispersions of these polychloroprenes that contain comonomers other 
than methacrylic acid); (2) aqueous dispersions of polychloroprenes 
that are dipolymers of chloroprene and 2,3-dichlorobutadiene-1,3 
modified with xanthogen disulfides, where the dispersion has a 
solids content of greater than 59 percent (this category is limited 
to aqueous dispersions of these polymers and does not include 
aqueous dispersions of polychloroprenes that contain comonomers 
other than 2,3-dichlorobutadiene-1,3); and (3) solid 
polychloroprenes that are dipolymers of chloroprene and 2,3-
dichlorobutadiene-1,3 having a 2,3-dichlorobutadiene-1,3 content of 
15 percent or greater (this category is limited to polychloroprenes 
in solid form and does not include aqueous dispersions). See also 
Notice of Scope Rulings, 74 FR 14521 (March 31, 2009).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 finding. 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 finding. The effective date of revocation 
is August 4, 2010, the fifth anniversary of the date of publication in 
the Federal Register of the most recent notice of continuation of this 
antidumping duty finding.

Termination of Suspension of Liquidation:

    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, to terminate the suspension of 
liquidation of the merchandise subject to this finding entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, on or after August 4, 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 finding and will conduct administrative 
reviews of subject merchandise entered prior to the effective date of 
revocation in response to appropriately filed requests of review.
    This five-year (sunset) review and notice are published in 
accordance with sections 751(c) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: August 17, 2010.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
