On November 4, 2009, the Department of Commerce issued an antidumping duty order on imports of diamond sawblades and parts thereof from China (74 FR 57145, November 4, 2009). The effective date of the order was January 23, 2009. On December 2, 2013, the Commission instituted a fiveyear review on the antidumping duty order on imports of diamond sawblades and parts thereof from China (78 FR 72116, Dec. 2, 2013). The U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce) initiated its five-year review of the order on the same day (78 FR 72061, Dec. 2, 2013).

Public reporting burden for the request is estimated to average 15 hours per response. Please send comments regarding the accuracy of this burden estimate to the Office of Investigations, U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20436. PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Commission determined to conduct a full review of the order (Explanation of Commission Determination on Adequacy in Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof from China, Inv. No. 731– TA–1092 (Review)). The Diamond Sawblades Manufacturers’ Coalition (DSMC), an association of domestic producers of diamond sawblades, subsequently filed an action in the U.S. Court of International Trade (CIT) to declare that the five-year reviews that Commerce initiated and the Commission instituted were ultra vires because they began prematurely. On September 23, 2014, the CIT issued a judgment in favor of DSMC, directed the Commission to cease further work on the five-year review it previously instituted, and to instead institute a review on November 4, 2014. Diamond Sawblades Mfrs. Coalition v. United States, Slip Op. 14– 111 (Ct. Int’l Trade Sept. 23, 2014). Accordingly, pursuant to the CIT order in Diamond Sawblades Manufacturers’ Coalition, we are hereby terminating the previously instituted sunset review, effective September 23, 2014. Pursuant to the judgment of the CIT, the Commission is instituting this review to determine whether revocation of the antidumping duty order on diamond sawblades and parts thereof from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to the domestic industry within a reasonably foreseeable time. It will assess the adequacy of interested party responses to this notice of institution to determine whether to conduct a full review or an expedited review. The Commission is mindful, however, that both domestic and respondent interested parties responded to the notice of institution it published on December 2, 2013, and that in light of these responses the Commission determined that conducting a full review was appropriate. In order to avoid duplication of effort and to streamline these proceedings, the Commission is not requiring those interested parties that submitted adequate responses to the December 2, 2013 institution notice to submit full responses to this notice. Instead, each such party may simply submit no later than December 4, 2014 a response indicating that: (1) It incorporates the contents of its response to the December 2, 2013 institution notice and (2) that it is willing to participate in this review by providing information requested to the Commission. Any such party, should it desire, may also provide additional information of the nature specified below. Parties that did not submit an adequate response to the E:\FR\FM\04NON1.SGM 04NON1
