Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to this antidumping duty order is 
polyethylene retail carrier bags (PRCBs), which also may be referred to 
as t-shirt sacks, merchandise bags, grocery bags, or checkout bags. The 
subject merchandise is defined as non-sealable sacks and bags with 
handles (including drawstrings), without zippers or integral extruded 
closures, with or without gussets, with or without printing, of 
polyethylene film having a thickness no greater than 0.035 inch (0.889 
mm) and no less than 0.00035 inch (0.00889 mm), and with no length or 
width shorter than 6 inches (15.24 cm) or longer than 40 inches (101.6

    PRCBs are typically provided without any consumer packaging and 
free of charge by retail establishments, e.g., grocery, drug, 
convenience, department, specialty retail, discount stores, and

products. The scope of this antidumping duty order excludes (1) PRCBs

with drawstrings made of polyethylene film and (2) PRCBs that are 
packed in consumer packaging with printing that refers to specific end-
uses other than packaging and carrying merchandise from retail

Final Determination of No Shipments

    As noted above, the Department received no comments from interested 
parties concerning the Preliminary Results on the record of this 
segment of the proceeding. As there are no changes from, or comments

decision memorandum accompanies this Federal Register notice. For 
further details of the issues addressed in this proceeding, see the
