Based on the expression of no interest by companies accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product to which the CLPP Order pertains, we preliminarily determined that the domestic producers of the like product have no interest in the continued application of the AD order on CLPP from the PRC to the merchandise that is subject to this request and that partial revocation of the order is appropriate. Accordingly, we notified the public of our intent to revoke, in part, the AD order with respect to FiveStar® AdvanceTM notebooks and notebook organizers without PVC coatings.7 We did not receive any comments from parties objecting to the partial revocation. Therefore, the Department is partially revoking the AD order on CLPP from the PRC with respect to FiveStar® AdvanceTM notebooks and notebook organizers without PVC coatings. As we stated in our Intent to Revoke, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to end the suspension of liquidation for the merchandise covered by the revocation on the effective date of this notice of revocation and to release any cash deposit or bond. See 19 CFR 351.222(g)(4). This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.306. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. This changed circumstances review, partial revocation of the AD order and notice are in accordance with sections 751(b) and (d), 777(i), and 782(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216, 351.221, and 351.222.

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review, and Revocation of the AD 
Order in Part

    At the request of AASPS, and in accordance with sections 751(b)(1) 
and (d)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``Act''), and 19 CFR 
351.216, the Department determined to initiate a changed circumstances 
review of the AD order on CLPP from the PRC to determine whether 
partial revocation of the order is warranted with respect to 
FiveStar[reg] Advance\TM\ notebooks and notebook organizers without PVC 
coatings.\5\ In addition, we determined that expedited action was 
warranted and, consistent with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii), we combined 
the notices of initiation and preliminary results.\6\ Because AASPS, 
the petitioner in the underlying investigation, made an affirmative 
statement of no interest and claimed that parties accounting for more 
than 85 percent of production of the domestic like product support the 
partial revocation, we accepted their claim and, in accordance with 
section 751(b) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(g)(1)(i), and absent any 
evidence to the contrary, found that substantially all of the producers 
of the domestic like product expressed a lack of interest in 
maintaining the order with respect to FiveStar[reg] Advance\TM\ 
notebooks and notebook organizers without PVC coatings. Based on the 
expression of no interest by companies accounting for substantially all 
of the production of the domestic like product to which the CLPP Order 
pertains, we preliminarily determined that the domestic producers of 
the like product have no interest in the continued application of the 
AD order on CLPP from the PRC to the merchandise that is subject to 
this request and that partial revocation of the order is appropriate. 
Accordingly, we notified the public of our intent to revoke, in part, 
the AD order with respect to FiveStar[reg] Advance\TM\ notebooks and 
notebook organizers without PVC coatings.\7\ We did not receive any 
comments from parties objecting to the partial revocation. Therefore, 
the Department is partially revoking the AD order on CLPP from the PRC 
with respect to FiveStar[reg] Advance\TM\ notebooks and notebook 
organizers without PVC coatings.

    As we stated in our Intent to Revoke, we will instruct U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection to end the suspension of liquidation for the 
merchandise covered by the revocation on the effective date of this 
notice of revocation and to release any cash deposit or bond. See 19 
CFR 351.222(g)(4).
    This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.306. Timely written notification of 
the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial 
protective order is hereby requested.
    This changed circumstances review, partial revocation of the AD 
order and notice are in accordance with sections 751(b) and (d), 
777(i), and 782(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216, 351.221, and 351.222.
