on lock washers from Taiwan and the PRC pursuant to section 751(c) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).\1\ On November 4, 2016, 
the Department received a notice of intent to participate in both of 
these reviews from Shakeproof Assembly Components Division of Illinois 
Tool Works Inc. (the petitioner), within the deadline specified in 19

response from the petitioner for both reviews, within the deadline 
specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). We received no substantive 
responses from any respondent interested parties. As a result, pursuant 
to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), 
the Department conducted expedited sunset reviews of these antidumping 
duty orders.

Lock washers subject to the orders are currently classifiable under 
subheadings 7318.21.0000, 7318.21.0030, and 7318.21.0090 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the
