Purified Carboxymethylcellulose From Finland and the Netherlands: 
Continuation of Antidumping Duty Orders

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of 
Commerce and the U.S. International Trade Commission that revocation of 
the antidumping duty orders on purified carboxymethylcellulose from 
Finland and the Netherlands would likely lead to continuation or 
recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United 
States, the Department of Commerce is publishing a notice of 
continuation of these antidumping duty orders.

DATES: Effective Date: May 20, 2011.

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 Finland and the Netherlands. 
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 published a notice of initiation 
of its first five-year (sunset) reviews of the antidumping duty orders 
on purified CMC from Finland and the Netherlands. See Initiation of 
Five-Year (``Sunset'') Review, 75 FR 30777 (June 2, 2010).

[[Page 29192]]

    As a result of these sunset reviews, the Department determined that 
revocation of the antidumping duty orders on purified CMC from Finland 
and the Netherlands would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of 
dumping and, therefore, notified the U.S. International Trade 
Commission (ITC) of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail 
should these orders be revoked. 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 accompanying Issues and Decision 
Memorandum.
    On May 12, 2011, the ITC published its determination in the Federal 
Register, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on 
purified CMC from Finland and the Netherlands would likely lead to a 
continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the 
United Sates 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 these 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.

Continuation of the Orders

    As a result of the determinations by the Department and the ITC 
that revocation of the antidumping duty orders would likely lead to 
continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an 
industry in the United States, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the 
Act, the Department hereby orders the continuation of the antidumping 
duty orders on purified CMC from Finland and the Netherlands.
    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. The effective date of the 
continuation of these orders will be the date of publication in the 
Federal Register of this notice of continuation. Pursuant to section 
751(c)(2) of the Act, the Department intends to initiate the next 
sunset reviews of these orders not later than 30 days prior to the 
fifth anniversary of the effective date of continuation.
    These sunset reviews and this notice are in accordance with section 
751(c) of the Act and published pursuant to section 777(i)(1) of the 
Act.
