SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of Commerce (the Department) and the International Trade Commission (ITC) that revocation of the antidumping duty (AD) orders on certain polyester staple fiber from the Republic of Korea (Korea) and Taiwan would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, the Department is publishing this notice of continuation of the AD orders.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On May 25, 2000, the Department published the AD Orders on polyester staple fiber from Korea and Taiwan.1 On August 1, 2016, the Department published the notice of initiation of the third sunset review of the AD Orders on polyester staple fiber from Korea and Taiwan, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).2 As a result of its review, the Department determined that revocation of the AD Orders would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping.3 The Department, therefore, notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail should the AD Orders be revoked. On January 18, 2017, the ITC determined that revoking the AD Orders on polyester staple fiber from Korea and Taiwan would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury with a reasonably foreseeable time.4 mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:35 Feb 09, 2017 Jkt 241001 1 See Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Polyester Staple Fiber from the Republic of Korea and Antidumping Duty Orders: Certain Polyester Staple Fiber from the Republic of Korea and Taiwan, 65 FR 33807, 33808 (May 25, 2000); see also Certain Polyester Staple Fiber from Korea: Notice of Amended Final Determination and Amended Order Pursuant to Final Court Decision, 68 FR 74552, 74553 (December, 24, 2003) (AD Orders). 2 See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 81 FR 50462 (August 1, 2016). 3 See Certain Polyester Staple Fiber from the Republic of Korea and Taiwan: Final Results of Expedited Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Orders, 81 FR 92783 (December 20, 2016), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. 4 See Polyester Staple Fiber from Korea and Taiwan, Inv.

In addition, low-melt polyester staple fiber is excluded from the orders. Low-melt polyester staple fiber is defined as a bicomponent fiber with an outer sheath that melts at a significantly lower temperature than its inner core.
