This approach is consistent with the Department’s practice, including the prior sunset review of this CVD order.6 The Department did not 1 See Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Lined Paper Products from the People’s Republic of China; Notice of Antidumping Duty Orders: Certain Lined Paper Products from India, Indonesia and the People’s Republic of China; and Notice of Countervailing Duty Orders: Certain Lined Paper Products from India and Indonesia, 71 FR 56949 (September 28, 2006). 2 See Initiation of Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews, 82 FR 30844 (July 3, 2017). 3 See Letter from the Domestic Interested Party, ‘‘Certain Lined Paper Products from India: Notice of Intent to Participate in Sunset Review,’’ dated July 18, 2017. 4 Id. at 1–2. 5 See Letter from the Domestic Interested Party, ‘‘Certain Lined Paper Products from India: Substantive Response to Notice of Initiation of Sunset Review,’’ dated August 2, 2017. 6 See, e.g., Welded Carbon Steel Pipe and Tube From Turkey: Final Results of Expedited Sunset Review of Countervailing Duty Order, 76 FR 64900 (October 19, 2011); Certain Pasta from Turkey: Final Results of Expedited Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review of the Countervailing Duty Order, 72 FR 5269 (February 5, 2007); and Certain Carbon Steel Products from Sweden; Final Results of Expedited Sunset Review of Countervailing Duty Order, 65 FR 18304 (April 7, 2000).

conducted an expedited sunset review of this order pursuant to the Act 
and 19 CFR 351. As a result of this sunset review, the Department finds

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The CVD order on certain lined paper products from India was 
published in the Federal Register on September 28, 2006.\1\ On July 3, 
2017, the Department initiated the second sunset review of this CVD 
order pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act.\2\ On July 18, 2017, we 
received a notice of intent to participate on behalf of the Association 
of American School Paper Suppliers and each of its individual members 
(AASPS, hereinafter referred to as the domestic interested party), an 
association of domestic producers of lined paper products.\3\ The 
domestic interested party claimed interested party status under 
sections 771(9)(F) and (C) of the Act, because it is comprised of an 
association of U.S. producers of the domestic like product and the 
individual members of the association, which are manufacturers, 
producers, or wholesalers in the United States of the domestic like 
product.\4\ On August 2, 2017, the domestic interested party submitted 
its substantive response within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(3)(i).\5\ The Department did not receive any substantive 
response from the Government of India, or Indian producers or exporters 
of the merchandise covered by the CVD order. 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 an expedited review of the CVD order. This 
approach is consistent with the Department's practice, including the 
prior sunset review of this CVD order.\6\ The Department did not

conduct a hearing because a hearing was not requested.
