SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On March 16, 2018, Commerce published the notice of initiation of the CCRs requested by DAK Americas, LLC; Nan Ya Plastics Corporation, America; Auriga Polymers; and Palmetto Synthetics LLC (i.e., the domestic producers) pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.216(b). The domestic producers requested the revocation of the orders with respect to any low-melt PSF that may be covered by the Orders 1 to avoid any potential overlap in coverage between the Orders and the AD orders that may result from the pending less-than-fair-value investigations of low-melt polyester staple fiber from Korea and Taiwan.2 On April 19, 2018, Commerce published the preliminary results of these CCRs, in which it found that producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product to which the Orders pertain lack interest in the relief afforded by the Orders with respect to certain low-melt PSF.3 Commerce invited interested 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 (May 25, 2000) (Orders). 2 See Polyester Staple Fiber from the Republic of Korea and Taiwan: Initiation of Changed Circumstances Reviews, and Consideration of Revocation of the Antidumping Duty Orders in Part, 83 FR 11678 (March 16, 2018) (Initiation Notice); see also Low Melt Polyester Staple Fiber from the Republic of Korea and Taiwan: Initiation of LessThan-Fair-Value Investigations, 82 FR 34277 (July 24, 2017); Low Melt Polyester Staple Fiber from the Republic of Korea: Preliminary Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, Preliminary Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances, in Part, Postponement of Final Determination, and Extension of Provisional Measures, 83 FR 4906 (February 2, 2018); and Low Melt Polyester Staple Fiber from Taiwan: Preliminary Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, Postponement of Final Determination, and Extension of Provisional Measures, 83 FR 4903 (February 2, 2018). 3 See Polyester Staple Fiber from the Republic of Korea and Taiwan: Preliminary Results of Changed PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 parties to submit comments on the preliminary results. We received no comments. Final Results of Changed Circumstances Reviews, and Revocation of the Orders, in Part Because no party submitted comments opposing Commerce’s preliminary results, and the record contains no other information or evidence that calls into question the preliminary results, Commerce determines, pursuant to section 751(d)(1) of the Act, section 782(h) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.222(g), that there are changed circumstances that warrant revocation of the Orders, in part. Specifically, because the producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product to which the Orders pertain lack interest in the relief provided by the Orders with respect to the following type of PSF, we are revoking the Orders, in part, by replacing the following language currently in the scope of the Orders: ‘‘{i}n addition, low-melt PSF is excluded from these orders. Low-melt PSF is defined as a bi-component fiber with an outer sheath that melts at a significantly lower temperature than its inner core,’’ with the following language: ‘‘{i}n addition, low-melt PSF is excluded from these orders. Low-melt PSF is defined as a bi-component polyester fiber having a polyester fiber component that melts at a lower temperature than the other polyester fiber component.’’ The scope description below includes this replacement language. Scope of the Orders The product covered by the Orders is certain polyester staple fiber (PSF). PSF is defined as synthetic staple fibers, not carded, combed or otherwise processed for spinning, of polyesters measuring 3.3 decitex (3 denier, inclusive) or more in diameter. This merchandise is cut to lengths varying from one inch (25 mm) to five inches (127 mm).
