SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of Commerce (the Department) and the International Trade Commission (the ITC) in their five-year (sunset) reviews that revocation of the antidumping (AD) order on certain kitchen appliance shelving and racks (kitchen racks) from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, the Department is publishing a notice of continuation of the AD order. As a result of the determinations by the Department and the ITC that revocation of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on kitchen racks from the PRC would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of a countervailable subsidy and material injury to an industry in the United States, the Department is publishing a notice of continuation of the CVD order.

lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to 
an industry in the United States, the Department is publishing a notice 
of continuation of the AD order. As a result of the determinations by 
the Department and the ITC that revocation of the countervailing duty 
(CVD) order on kitchen racks from the PRC would likely lead to a

Background

    The Department published its Final AD Determination and Final CVD

pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the

revocation of the AD order would likely lead to a continuation or 
recurrence of dumping and that revocation of the CVD order on kitchen 
racks from the PRC would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of 
a countervailable subsidy. Therefore, the Department notified the ITC 
of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail should the AD order 
be revoked, and the net countervailable subsidy rates likely to prevail 
should the CVD order be revoked.\3\ On February 27, 2015, the ITC 
published its determination, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, 
that revocation of the AD Order and the CVD Order on kitchen racks from
