SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 28, 2009, the Department issued antidumping duty orders on 
HEDP from India and the PRC.\1\ On March 3, 2014, the Department 
initiated sunset reviews of these orders.\2\ We did not receive a 
notice of intent to participate from domestic interested parties in 
these sunset reviews by the deadline date. As a result, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(A), the Department determined that no 
domestic interested party intends to participate in these sunset 
reviews, and on March 24, 2014, we notified the International Trade 
Commission, in writing, that we intended to issue a final determination 
revoking these antidumping duty orders.\3\

(March 3, 2014).
    \3\ See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(2). Because the original 
deadline for notifying the International Trade Commission fell on a 
Sunday, the deadline for doing so was March 24, 2014. See Notice of 
Clarification: Application of ``Next Business Day'' Rule for 
Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 
1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).

aqueous, acidic (non-neutralized) concentrations of 1-
hydroxyethylidene-1, 1-diphosphonic acid,\4\ also referred to as 
hydroxethlylidenediphosphonic acid, hydroxyethanediphosphonic acid, 
acetodiphosphonic acid, and etidronic acid. The CAS (Chemical Abstract 
Service) registry number for HEDP is 2809-21-4. The merchandise subject 
to the order is currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule 
of the United States (``HTSUS'') at subheading 2931.00.9043. It may

Revocation

    Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act'') and 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(3), if no 
domestic interested party files a notice of intent to participate, the 
Department shall, within 90 days after the initiation of the review, 
issue a final determination revoking the order. Because no domestic 
interested party filed a notice of intent to participate, the 
Department finds that no domestic interested party is participating in 
these sunset reviews. Therefore, we are revoking the antidumping duty 
orders on HEDP from India and the PRC.

Effective Date of Revocation

    The effective date of revocation is April 28, 2014, the fifth 
anniversary of the date of publication in the Federal Register of these 
antidumping duty orders. Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(A) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i), the Department intends to issue 
instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, 15 days after 
publication of this notice, to terminate the suspension of liquidation 
of the merchandise subject to these orders entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after April 28, 2014. 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 and will conduct administrative 
reviews of subject merchandise entered prior to the effective date of 
revocation in response to appropriately filed requests of review.
    These final results of the five-year (sunset) reviews and notice 
are published in accordance with sections 751(c) and 777(i)(1) of the 
Act.
