Commodity matchbooks included in the scope of this order may or may not contain printing. For example, they may have no printing other than the identification of the manufacturer or importer. Commodity matchbooks may also be printed with a generic message such as ‘‘Thank You’’ or a generic image such as the American Flag, with store brands (e.g., Kroger, 7-Eleven, Shurfine or Giant); product brands for national or regional advertisers such as cigarettes or alcoholic beverages; or with corporate brands for national or regional distributors (e.g., Penley Corp. or Diamond Brands).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On November 3, 2014, the Department published the notice of 
initiation of the first sunset review of the antidumping duty order on 
commodity matchbooks from India pursuant to section 751(c) of the 
Act.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Notice of Initiation, 79 FR at 65186.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department received a notice of intent to participate from D.D. 
Bean & Sons Co. (D.D. Bean), a domestic interested party, within the 
deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). The company claimed 
interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as a

    The Department received a complete substantive response to the 
notice of initiation from D.D. Bean within the 30-day deadline 
specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). We received no substantive

result, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department conducted an expedited (120-

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Such commodity matchbooks are also referred to as ``for

e.g., convenience stores, supermarkets, dollar stores, drug stores 
and mass merchandisers.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commodity matchbooks included in the scope of this order may or may

retail distribution channels. Regardless of the materials used for the 
stems of the matches and regardless of the way the match stems are 
fastened to the matchbook cover, all commodity matchbooks are included
