SUMMARY: On May 3, 2010, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty order on potassium permanganate from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). On the basis of a timely notice of intent to participate and an adequate substantive response filed on behalf of a domestic interested party, as well as a lack of response from respondent interested parties, the Department conducted an expedited sunset review. As a result of the sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping. The dumping margins are identified in the Final Results of Review section of this notice.

The product of the Data Workshop is a data report which compiles and evaluates potential datasets and recommends which datasets are appropriate for assessment analyses. The product of the Assessment Process is a stock assessment report which describes the fisheries, evaluates the status of the stock, estimates biological benchmarks, projects future population conditions, and recommends research and monitoring needs. The assessment is independently peer reviewed at the Review Workshop. The product of the Review Workshop is a Summary documenting Panel opinions regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the stock assessment and input data. Participants for SEDAR Workshops are appointed by the Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils and NOAA Fisheries Southeast Regional Office, HMS Management Division, and Southeast Fisheries Science Center.

Results of Expedited Sunset Review of Antidumping Duty Order

SUMMARY: On May 3, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty order on potassium 
permanganate from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). On the 
basis of a timely notice of intent to participate and an adequate 
substantive response filed on behalf of a domestic interested party, as 
well as a lack of response from respondent interested parties, the 
Department conducted an expedited sunset review. As a result of the 
sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping 
duty order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of 
dumping. The dumping margins are identified in the Final Results of 
Review section of this notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 3, 2010, the Department published the notice of initiation 
of the sunset review of the antidumping duty order on potassium 
permanganate from the PRC pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). See Initiation of Five-Year 
(``Sunset'') Review, 75 FR 23240 (May 3, 2010). On May 6, 2010, the 
Department received a notice of intent to participate from a domestic 
producer, Carus Corporation (``Carus,'' ``domestic interested party,'' 
or ``Petitioner''). Submission of the notice of intent to participate 
filed by Petitioner was within the deadline specified in section 
351.218(d)(1)(i) of the Department's regulations. The domestic 
interested party claimed interested party status under section 
771(9)(C) of the Act, as Carus is a domestic manufacturer of potassium 
permanganate in the United States. On May 28, 2010, the Department 
received a substantive response from the domestic interested party 
within the deadline specified in section 351.218(d)(3)(i) of the 
Department's regulations. We did not receive substantive responses from 
any respondent interested parties to this proceeding. As a result, 
pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and section 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2) of the Department's regulations, the Department 
determined to conduct an expedited review of the order.

Scope of the Order

    Imports covered by the order are shipments of potassium 
permanganate, an inorganic chemical produced in free-flowing, 
technical, and pharmaceutical grades. Potassium permanganate is 
currently classifiable under item 2841.61.00 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule (HTS). The HTS item number is provided for convenience and 
customs purposes. The written description remains dispositive.

that revocation of the antidumping duty order on potassium permanganate 
from the PRC

following percentage margins:
