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

SUMMARY: On July 2, 2012, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated the second five-year (``sunset'') review of the 
antidumping duty order on honey from the People's Republic of China 
(``PRC'') pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act'').\1\ On the basis of a notice of intent to 
participate and an adequate substantive response filed on behalf of the 
domestic interested parties, 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)(ii)(C)(2). As a result 
of this sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of the 
antidumping duty order on honey 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.
