SUMMARY: On June 1, 2015, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published the notice of initiation of the first five-year (‘‘sunset’’) review of the antidumping duty order on certain potassium phosphate salts (‘‘salts’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’).1 As a result of this sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty order on salts from the PRC would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping. The magnitude of the dumping margins likely to prevail is indicated in the ‘‘Final Results of Review’’ section of this notice. DATES: Effective date: October 5, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background As noted above, on June 1, 2015, the Department published the initiation of the first sunset review of salts from the PRC.2 On June 11, 2015, ICL Performance Products, LP and Prayon, Inc. (collectively, ‘‘Petitioners’’) timely notified the Department of their intent to participate within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i), claiming domestic interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act.3 On July 1, 2015, the Department received an adequate substantive response from Petitioners within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i).4 We received no responses from respondent interested parties. As a result, the Department conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of the order, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2). Scope of the Order The phosphate salts covered by the scope of the order include anhydrous Dipotassium Phosphate (DKP) and Tetrapotassium Pyrophosphate (TKPP), whether anhydrous or in solution (collectively ‘‘phosphate salts’’). TKPP, also known as normal potassium pyrophosphate, Diphosphoric acid or Tetrapotassium salt, is a potassium salt with the formula K4P2O7. The CAS registry number for TKPP is 7320–34–5. TKPP is typically 18.7 percent phosphorus and 47.3 percent potassium. It is generally greater than or equal to 43.0 percent P2O5 content. TKPP is classified under heading 2835.39.1000, HTSUS. DKP, also known as Dipotassium salt, Dipotassium hydrogen orthophosphate or Potassium phosphate, dibasic, has a chemical formula of K2HPO4. The CAS registry number for DKP is 7758–11–4. DKP is typically 17.8 percent phosphorus, 44.8 percent potassium and 40 percent P2O5 content. DKP is classified under heading 2835.24.0000 HTSUS. The products covered by this order include the foregoing phosphate salts in all grades, whether food grade or technical grade. The products covered by this order also include anhydrous DKP without regard to the physical form, whether crushed, granule, powder 2 Id. 1 See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 80 FR 31012 (June 1, 2015).

Certain Potassium Phosphate Salts From the People's Republic of 
China: Final Results of Expedited First Sunset Review of the 
Antidumping Duty Order

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: On June 1, 2015, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published the notice of initiation of the first five-year (``sunset'') 
review of the antidumping duty order on certain potassium phosphate 
salts (``salts'') from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') 
pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
``Act'').\1\ As a result of this sunset review, the Department finds 
that revocation of the antidumping duty order on salts from the PRC 
would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping. The 
magnitude of the dumping margins likely to prevail is indicated in the 
``Final Results of Review'' section of this notice.
