SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On March 29, 1995, the Department published the antidumping duty 
order on glycine from the PRC.\1\ On August 1, 2016, the Department 
initiated a sunset review of the Order in accordance with section 
751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).\2\ On August 8, 
2016, the Department received complete notices of intent to participate 
in the sunset review from GEO Specialty Chemicals, Inc. (GEO or 
domestic interested party) and Chattem Chemicals, Inc. within the 
deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). On August 25, 2016, 
Chattem Chemicals, Inc. withdrew its intent to appear as a party to 
this review. GEO is a producer of a domestic like product in the United 
States and, accordingly, is a domestic interested party pursuant to 
section 771(9)(C) of the Act.

    On August 30, 2016, the Department received an adequate substantive 
response to the notice of initiation from GEO within the 30-day 
deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). The Department did not 
receive any responses from the respondent interested parties, i.e., 
glycine producers and exporters from the PRC. On the basis of the 
notice of intent to participate and adequate substantive response filed 
by the domestic interested party and no response from any respondent 
interested party, the Department has conducted an expedited sunset 
review of the Order pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 
CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C).

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by the order is glycine, which is a free-
flowing crystalline material, like salt or sugar. Glycine is produced 
at varying levels of purity and is used as a sweetener/taste enhancer, 
a buffering agent, reabsorbable amino acid, chemical intermediate, and 
a metal complexing agent. This order covers glycine of all purity 
levels. Glycine is currently classified under subheading 2922.49.4020 
of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). 
Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and Customs 
purposes, the written description of the merchandise under the order is 
dispositive.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ In a separate scope ruling, the Department determined that 
D(-) Phenylglycine Ethyl Dane Salt is outside the scope of the 
order. See Notice of Scope Rulings, 62 FR 62288 (November 21, 1997).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Analysis of Comments Received

    The issues discussed in the Decision Memorandum \4\ are the 
likelihood of continuation or recurrence of dumping, and the magnitude 
of the margin of dumping likely to prevail if the Order were revoked.

review and the corresponding recommendations in the Decision Memorandum 
which is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's
