Commerce (the ``Department'') and the International Trade Commission 
(the ``ITC'') that revocation of the antidumping duty order on 
potassium permanganate from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') 
would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On September 1, 2015, the Department published a notice of 
initiation of the sunset review of the antidumping duty order on 
potassium permanganate from the PRC, pursuant to section 751(c) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act'').\1\ As a result of its 
review, the Department determined that revocation of the antidumping 
duty order on potassium permanganate from the PRC would likely lead to 
a continuation or recurrence of dumping and, therefore, notified the 
ITC of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail should the order 
be revoked.\2\ On February 8, 2016, the ITC published notice of its 
determination, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation 
of the antidumping duty order on potassium permanganate from the PRC 
would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury to 
an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable 
time.\3\
