It is used in the manufacture of resins and as a wetting agent and solvent for coating resins, nitrocellulose, cellulose acetate, and other soluble dyes. The product subject to the order is classifiable under subheading 2932.13.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’).

As a result of these sunset reviews, the Department determined that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on welded ASTM A–312 stainless steel pipe from Korea and Taiwan would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and, therefore, notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail should these orders be revoked.

Scope of the Orders The merchandise subject to the antidumping duty orders is welded austenitic stainless steel pipe that meets the standards and specifications set forth by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) for the welded form of chromium-nickel pipe designated ASTM A–312. The merchandise covered by the scope of the orders also includes austenitic welded stainless steel pipes made according to the standards of other nations which are comparable to ASTM A–312. Welded ASTM A–312 stainless steel pipe is produced by forming stainless steel flat-rolled products into a tubular configuration and welding along the seam. Welded ASTM A–312 stainless steel pipe is a commodity product generally used as a conduit to transmit liquids or gases.

Results of Expedited Third Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order

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

SUMMARY: On September 1, 2011, the Department of Commerce 
(``Department'') initiated the third five-year (``sunset'') review of 
the antidumping duty order on furfuryl alcohol from the People's 
Republic of China (``PRC'') pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff 
Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). On the basis of a notice of 
intent to participate, and an adequate substantive response filed on 
behalf of the domestic interested party, as well as a lack of response 
from respondent interested parties, the Department conducted an 
expedited sunset review of the antidumping duty order, pursuant to 
section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1). As a result 
of the sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of the 
antidumping duty order on furfuryl alcohol from the PRC would be likely 
to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the levels 
indicated in the ``Final Results of Review'' section of this notice.

DATES: Effective Date: December 19, 2011.
