SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 11, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the antidumping duty orders on purified carboxymethylcellulose (purified CMC) from Mexico and Sweden. See Notice of Antidumping Duty Orders: Purified Carboxymethylcellulose from Finland, Mexico, the Netherlands and Sweden, 70 FR 39734 (July 11, 2005). On June 2, 2010, the Department initiated its fiveyear sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on purified CMC from Mexico and Sweden. See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 75 FR 30777 (June 2, 2010). As a result of these sunset reviews, the Department determined that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on purified CMC from Mexico and Sweden would be likely to lead to the continuation or recurrence of dumping. See Purified Carboxymethylcellulose From Finland, the Netherlands, and Sweden: Final Results of the Expedited First Sunset Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders, 75 FR 61700 (October 6, 2010), and Purified Carboxymethylcellulose From Mexico: Final Results of the First Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review of Antidumping Duty Order, 76 FR 4865 (January 27, 2011). The Department notified the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail should the antidumping duty orders be revoked. On May 12, 2011, the ITC published its determination that, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), revocation of the antidumping duty orders on purified CMC from Mexico and Sweden would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 reasonably foreseeable time.

Scope of the Orders The merchandise covered by the orders is all purified CMC, sometimes also referred to as purified sodium CMC, polyanionic cellulose, or cellulose gum, which is a white to off-white, non-toxic, odorless, biodegradable powder, comprising sodium CMC that has been refined and purified to a minimum assay of 90 percent. Purified CMC does not include unpurified or crude CMC, CMC Fluidized Polymer Suspensions, and CMC that is cross-linked through heat treatment. Purified CMC is CMC that has undergone one or more purification operations, which, at a minimum, reduce the remaining salt and other by-product portion of the product to less than ten percent. The merchandise subject to the orders is currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States at subheading 3912.31.00. This tariff classification is provided for convenience and customs purposes; however, the written description of the scope of the orders is dispositive. Determination As a result of the determination by the ITC that revocation of the antidumping duty orders is not likely to lead to the continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States, the Department, pursuant to section 751(d) of the Act, is revoking the antidumping duty orders on purified CMC from Mexico and Sweden. Pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i), the effective date of revocation is July 11, 2010 (i.e., the fifth anniversary of the publication in the Federal Register of the notice of these orders). The Department will notify U.S. Customs and Border Protection to terminate suspension of liquidation and collection of cash deposits on entries of the subject merchandise entered or withdrawn from warehouse on or after July 11, 2010.

Purified Carboxymethylcellulose From Mexico and Sweden: 
Revocation of Antidumping Duty Orders

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: On June 2, 2010, the Department of Commerce initiated sunset 
reviews of the antidumping duty orders on purified 
carboxymethylcellulose from Mexico and Sweden. Pursuant to section 
751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, the U.S. International 
Trade Commission determined that revocation of the existing antidumping 
duty orders on purified carboxymethylcellulose from Mexico and Sweden 
would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material 
injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably 
foreseeable time. Therefore, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(1)(iii), the 
Department is revoking the antidumping duty orders on purified 
carboxymethylcellulose from Mexico and Sweden.

DATES: Effective Date: July 11, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dena Crossland or Angelica Mendoza, 
AD/CVD Operations Office 7, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-
3362 and (202) 482-3019, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On July 11, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published the antidumping duty orders on purified 
carboxymethylcellulose (purified CMC) from Mexico and Sweden. See 
Notice of Antidumping Duty Orders: Purified Carboxymethylcellulose from 
Finland, Mexico, the Netherlands and Sweden, 70 FR 39734 (July 11, 
2005). On June 2, 2010, the Department initiated its five-year sunset 
reviews of the antidumping duty orders on purified CMC from Mexico and 
Sweden. See Initiation of Five-Year (``Sunset'') Review, 75 FR 30777 
(June 2, 2010).
    As a result of these sunset reviews, the Department determined that 
revocation of the antidumping duty orders on purified CMC from Mexico 
and Sweden would be likely to lead to the continuation or recurrence of 
dumping. See Purified Carboxymethylcellulose From Finland, the 
Netherlands, and Sweden: Final Results of the Expedited First Sunset 
Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders, 75 FR 61700 (October 6, 2010), 
and Purified Carboxymethylcellulose From Mexico: Final Results of the 
First Five-Year (``Sunset'') Review of Antidumping Duty Order, 76 FR 
4865 (January 27, 2011). The Department notified the U.S. International 
Trade Commission (ITC) of the magnitude of the margins likely to 
prevail should the antidumping duty orders be revoked.
    On May 12, 2011, the ITC published its determination that, pursuant 
to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 
revocation of the antidumping duty orders on purified CMC from Mexico 
and Sweden would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of 
material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably 
foreseeable time. See Purified Carboxymethylcellulose from Finland, 
Mexico, Netherlands and Sweden, 76 FR 27663 (May 12, 2011), and USITC 
Publication 4225 (May 2011), titled Purified Carboxymethylcellulose 
from Finland, Mexico, Netherlands and Sweden (Investigation Nos. 731-
TA-1084-1087 (Review)).

Scope of the Orders

    The merchandise covered by the orders is all purified CMC, 
sometimes also referred to as purified sodium CMC, polyanionic 
cellulose, or cellulose gum, which is a white to off-white, non-toxic, 
odorless, biodegradable powder, comprising sodium CMC that has been 
refined and purified to a minimum assay of 90 percent. Purified CMC 
does not include unpurified or crude CMC, CMC Fluidized Polymer 
Suspensions, and CMC that is cross-linked through heat treatment. 
Purified CMC is CMC that has undergone one or more purification 
operations, which, at a minimum, reduce the remaining salt and other 
by-product portion of the product to less than ten percent. The 
merchandise subject to the orders is currently classified in the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States at subheading 
3912.31.00. This tariff classification is provided for convenience and 
customs purposes; however, the written description of the scope of the 
orders is dispositive.

Determination

    As a result of the determination by the ITC that revocation of the 
antidumping duty orders is not likely to lead to the continuation or 
recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States, the 
Department, pursuant to section 751(d) of the Act, is revoking the 
antidumping duty orders on purified CMC from Mexico and Sweden. 
Pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i), 
the effective date of revocation is July 11, 2010 (i.e., the fifth 
anniversary of the publication in the Federal Register of the notice of 
these orders). The Department will notify U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection to terminate suspension of liquidation and collection of 
cash deposits on entries of the subject merchandise entered or 
withdrawn from warehouse on or after July 11, 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 these orders.
