SUMMARY: On September 13, 2010, the United States Court of International Trade (‘‘CIT’’) sustained the remand determination made by the Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) pursuant to the CIT’s remand of the final determination in the antidumping duty investigation on 1hydroxyethylidene-1, 1-diphosphonic acid (‘‘HEDP’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) and ordered the case dismissed.1 This case arises out of the Department’s final determination in the antidumping investigation on HEDP from the PRC.2 As there is now a final and conclusive court decision in this action with respect to Changzhou Wujin Fine Chemical Factory Co., Ltd. (‘‘Wujin Fine’’), the Department is amending its Final Determination and Antidumping Duty Order.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 11, 2009, the Department published its Final Determination in which it determined that HEDP from the PRC is being, or is likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value as provided in section 735 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’).3 Separate rate respondent companies Wujin Fine and Jiangsu Jianghai Chemical Group Co., Ltd. (‘‘Jiangsu Jianghai’’) timely challenged certain aspects of the Final Determination to the CIT. Among the issues raised before the CIT was whether the Department properly corroborated the adverse facts available (‘‘AFA’’) rate upon which it relied in calculating the separate rate. On February 8, 2010, the CIT granted the United States’ motion for a voluntary remand to reconsider the separate rate assigned to Wujin Fine and Jiangsu Jianghai after examining whether the Department corroborated the AFA rate upon which it relied in 1 See Changzhou Wujin Fine Chemical Factory Co., Ltd. v. United States, No. 09–00216, Slip Op. 10–85 (Ct. Int’l Trade Aug. 5, 2010); Changzhou Wujin Fine Chemical Factory Co., Ltd. v. United States, No. 09–00216, Slip Op. 10–103 (Ct.

On September 13, 2010, the CIT sustained the Department’s remand redetermination, and subsequently dismissed the case.6 On November 12, 2010, Jiangsu Jianghai filed an appeal with the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (‘‘CAFC’’) of the CIT’s decision.7 Wujin Fine, however, elected not to appeal the CIT’s decision. Consistent with the decision of the CAFC in Timken Co. v. United States, 893 F.2d 337 (Fed. Cir. 1990), the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of a court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with the Department’s final determination.8 The Timken Notice incorrectly stated that, ‘‘In the event the CIT’s decision is affirmed on appeal, the Department will publish an amended final determination revising the separate rate assigned to Wujin Fine and Jiangsu Jianghai and issue revised cash deposit instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.’’ 9 As noted above, only Jiangsu Jianghai appealed the CIT’s decision with the CAFC. Because Wujin Fine did not appeal the CIT’s decision and the period to appeal that decision has expired, the CIT decision is final and conclusive for Wujin Fine. Accordingly, the Department is amending its Final Determination and Antidumping Duty Order. 4 See Changzhou Wujin Fine Chemical Factory Co., Ltd. v. United States, No. 09–00216 (Ct.

See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 75 FR 39494 (July 9, 2010).

See Petroleum Wax Candles From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Expedited Third Sunset Review of Antidumping Duty Order, 75 FR 70713 (November 18, 2010). On December 17, 2010, the ITC determined, pursuant to section 751(c)(1) of the Act, that revocation of the antidumping duty order on petroleum wax candles from the PRC would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable future.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect antidumping duty cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise.

Court Decision and Correction to Notice of Decision of the Court of

DATES: Effective Date: January 6, 2011.
SUMMARY: On September 13, 2010, the United States Court of 
International Trade (``CIT'') sustained the remand determination made 
by the Department of Commerce (the ``Department'') pursuant to the 
CIT's remand of the final determination in the antidumping duty 
investigation on 1-hydroxyethylidene-1, 1-diphosphonic acid (``HEDP'') 
from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') and ordered the case 
dismissed.\1\ This case arises out of the Department's final 
determination in the antidumping investigation on HEDP from the PRC.\2\ 
As there is now a final and conclusive court decision in this action 
with respect to Changzhou Wujin Fine Chemical Factory Co., Ltd. 
(``Wujin Fine''), the Department is amending its Final Determination 
and Antidumping Duty Order.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 11, 2009, the Department published 
its Final Determination in which it determined that HEDP from the PRC 
is being, or is likely to be, sold in the United States at less than 
fair value as provided in section 735 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the ``Act'').\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Final Determination, 74 FR at 10545.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Separate rate respondent companies Wujin Fine and Jiangsu Jianghai 
Chemical Group Co., Ltd. (``Jiangsu Jianghai'') timely challenged 
certain aspects of the Final Determination to the CIT. Among the issues 
raised before the CIT was whether the Department properly corroborated 
the adverse facts available (``AFA'') rate upon which it relied in 
calculating the separate rate.
    On February 8, 2010, the CIT granted the United States' motion for 
a voluntary remand to reconsider the separate rate assigned to Wujin 
Fine and Jiangsu Jianghai after examining whether the Department 
corroborated the AFA rate upon which it relied in calculating the 
separate rate.\4\ In a remand determination filed on May 3, 2010, the 
Department determined that the AFA rate upon which the Department 
relied in calculating the separate rate was not corroborated in the 
Final Determination.\5\ Consequently, the Department calculated a 
revised separate rate of 15.47 percent for Wujin Fine and Jiangsu 
Jianghai relying on a second AFA rate that did not require 
corroboration.

United States, No. 09-00216 (Ct. Int'l Trade Feb. 8, 2010).
    \5\ See Final Results of Redetermination Pursuant to Court 
Order: Changzhou Wujin Fine Chemical Factory Co., Ltd. v. United 
States (May 3, 2010) at 1-9.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On September 13, 2010, the CIT sustained the Department's remand 
redetermination, and subsequently dismissed the case.\6\ On November 
12, 2010, Jiangsu Jianghai filed an appeal with the United States Court 
of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (``CAFC'') of the CIT's decision.\7\ 
Wujin Fine, however, elected not to appeal the CIT's decision.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Changzhou Wujin Fine Chemical Factory Co., Ltd. v. 
United States, No. 09-00216, Slip Op. 10-103 (Ct. Int'l Trade Sept. 
13, 2010).
    \7\ In the event the CIT's decision is affirmed on appeal, the 
Department will publish an amended final determination revising the 
separate rate assigned to Jiangsu Jianghai and issue revised cash 
deposit instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with the decision of the CAFC in Timken Co. v. United 
States, 893 F.2d 337 (Fed. Cir. 1990), the Department published in the 
Federal Register a notice of a court decision that is not ``in 
harmony'' with the Department's final determination.\8\ The Timken 
Notice incorrectly stated that, ``In the event the CIT's decision is 
affirmed on appeal, the Department will publish an amended final 
determination revising the separate rate assigned to Wujin Fine and 
Jiangsu Jianghai and issue revised cash deposit instructions to U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection.'' \9\ As noted above, only Jiangsu 
Jianghai appealed the CIT's decision with the CAFC. Because Wujin Fine 
did not appeal the CIT's decision and the period to appeal that 
decision has expired, the CIT decision is final and conclusive for 
Wujin Fine. Accordingly, the Department is amending its Final 
Determination and Antidumping Duty Order.
