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 duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) orders on commodity matchbooks from India would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and a countervailable subsidy, as well as material injury to an industry in the United States, the Department is publishing a notice of continuation for the AD and CVD orders.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: Background On November 3, 2014, the Department initiated sunset reviews on the AD and CVD orders on commodity matchbooks from India pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).1 As a result of the reviews, the Department found that revocation of the AD order on commodity matchbooks from India would be likely to lead to the continuation or recurrence of dumping, and notified the ITC of the margins of dumping likely to prevail should the order be revoked.2 The Department also found that revocation of the CVD order 1 See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 79 FR 65186 (November 3, 2014). 2 See Commodity Matchbooks from India: Final Results of the Expedited First Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order, 80 FR 12801 (March 11, 2015). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:01 Apr 29, 2015 Jkt 235001 on commodity matchbooks from India would be likely to lead to the continuation or recurrence of a countervailable subsidy, and notified the ITC of the net countervailable subsidy that is likely to prevail should the order be revoked.3 On April 17, 2015, the ITC published its determination, pursuant to sections 751(c) and 752(a) of the Act, that revocation of the AD and CVD orders on commodity matchbooks from India would be likely to lead to the continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.4 Scope of the Orders The scope of the orders covers commodity matchbooks, also known as commodity book matches, paper matches or booklet matches.5 Commodity matchbooks typically, but do not necessarily, consist of twenty match stems which are usually made from paperboard or similar material tipped with a match head composed of any chemical formula. The match stems may be stitched, stapled or otherwise fastened into a matchbook cover of any material, on which a striking strip composed of any chemical formula has been applied to assist in the ignition process. Commodity matchbooks included in the scope of these orders 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). They all enter 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 in the scope of these orders. All matchbooks, including 3 See Commodity Matchbooks from India: Final Results of Expedited Sunset Review of the Countervailing Duty Order, 80 FR 12800 (March 11, 2015) (CVD Final Results). 4 See Commodity Matchbooks from India; Determinations, 80 FR 21263 (April 17, 2015). 5 Such commodity matchbooks are also referred to as ‘‘for resale’’ because they always enter into retail channels, meaning businesses that sell a general variety of tangible merchandise, e.g., convenience stores, supermarkets, dollar stores, drug stores and mass merchandisers. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 commodity matchbooks, typically comply with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Safety Standard for Matchbooks, codified at 16 CFR 1202.1 et seq. The scope of these orders excludes promotional matchbooks, often referred to as ‘‘not for resale,’’ or ‘‘specialty advertising’’ matchbooks, as they do not enter into retail channels and are sold to businesses that provide hospitality, dining, drinking or entertainment services to their customers, and are given away by these businesses as promotional items. Such promotional matchbooks are distinguished by the physical characteristic of having the name and/or logo of a bar, restaurant, ´ resort, hotel, club, cafe/coffee shop, grill, pub, eatery, lounge, casino, barbecue or individual establishment printed prominently on the matchbook cover. Promotional matchbook cover printing also typically includes the address and the phone number of the business or establishment being promoted.6 Also excluded are all other matches that are not fastened into a matchbook cover such as wooden matches, stick matches, box matches, kitchen matches, pocket matches, penny matches, household matches, strikeanywhere matches (aka ‘‘SAW’’ matches), strike-on-box matches (aka ‘‘SOB’’ matches), fireplace matches, barbeque/grill matches, fire starters, and wax matches. The merchandise subject to these orders is properly classified under subheading 3605.00.0060 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Subject merchandise may also enter under subheading 3605.00.0030 of the HTSUS. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of these orders is dispositive.7 Determination As a result of the determinations by the Department and the ITC that revocation of these AD and CVD duty 6 The gross distinctions between commodity matchbooks and promotional matchbooks may be summarized as follows: (1) If it has no printing, or is printed with a generic message such as ‘‘Thank You’’ or a generic image such as the American Flag, or printed with national or regional store brands or corporate brands, it is commodity; (2) if it has printing, and the printing includes the name of a ´ bar, restaurant, resort, hotel, club, cafe/coffee shop, grill, pub, eatery, lounge, casino, barbecue, or individual establishment prominently displayed on the matchbook cover, it is promotional. 7 The Department inadvertently omitted the HTSUS numbers for the merchandise subject to the CVD Order in the ‘‘Scope of the Order’’ section in the CVD Final Results. However, the complete description of the scope of the Orders is included in this notice, above. E:\FR\FM\30APN1.SGM 30APN1
