As a result, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C), Commerce conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of the Order. Scope of the Order The products covered by the Order are certain folding gift boxes. Folding gift boxes are a type of folding or knockdown carton manufactured from paper or paperboard. Folding gift boxes are produced from a variety of recycled and virgin paper or paperboard materials, including, but not limited to, claycoated paper or paperboard and kraft (bleached or unbleached) paper or paperboard. The scope of the Order excludes gift boxes manufactured from paper or paperboard of a thickness of more than 0.8 millimeters, corrugated paperboard, or paper mache. The scope also excludes those gift boxes for which no side of the box, when assembled, is at least nine inches in length. Folding gift boxes included in the scope are typically decorated with a holiday motif using various processes, including printing, embossing, 2 See Initiation of Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews, 83 FR 4641 (February 1, 2018). 3 See Domestic Interested Parties’ letter, ‘‘Third Five-Year (Sunset) Review of Antidumping Duty Order on Folding Gift Boxes from the People’s Republic of China/The Domestic Industry’s Notice of Intent to Participate,’’ dated February 16, 2018. 4 Id. at 2.

One-piece gift boxes are die-cut or otherwise formed so that the top, bottom, and sides form a single, contiguous unit. Two-piece gift boxes are those with a folded bottom and a folded top as separate pieces. Folding gift boxes are generally packaged in shrink-wrap, cellophane, or other packaging materials, in single or multi-box packs for sale to the retail customer. The scope excludes folding gift boxes that have a retailer’s name, logo, trademark or similar company information printed prominently on the box’s top exterior (such folding gift boxes are often known as ‘‘not-for-resale’’ gift boxes or ‘‘giveaway’’ gift boxes and may be provided by department and specialty stores at no charge to their retail customers).

Manufacturers, Producers, and Exporters DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Jkt 244001 On April 25, 2018, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) initiated countervailing duty (CVD) investigations on glycine from India, China, and Thailand.1 Currently, the preliminary determinations of these investigations are due no later than June 21, 2018. Postponement of Preliminary Determination Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires Commerce to issue the preliminary determination in a CVD investigation within 65 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation. However, if the petitioner makes a timely request for a postponement, section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act allows Commerce to postpone making the preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation. Under 19 CFR 351.205(e), a petitioner must submit a request for postponement 25 days or more before the scheduled date of the preliminary determination and must state the reason for the request. Commerce will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request. On May 22, 2018, GEO Specialty Chemicals, Inc. and Chattem Chemicals, Inc. (collectively, the petitioners) 1 See Glycine from India, the People’s Republic of China, and Thailand: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigations, 83 FR 18002 (April 25, 2018) (Initiation Notice). PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 26415 submitted timely requests, pursuant to section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(e), to postpone the preliminary determinations.2 The petitioners state that the current investigation schedule does not provide adequate time to develop the record prior to the preliminary determination. The petitioners, therefore, request postponement of the preliminary determination to allow parties sufficient time to develop the record, including analyzing questionnaire responses and permit the issuance of supplemental questionnaires, if necessary. According to petitioners, postponement of the preliminary determination by the maximum extension of 65 additional days in this case would allow sufficient time for Commerce to develop the record in this investigation. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioners have stated the reasons for requesting a postponement of the preliminary determination, and Commerce finds there are no compelling reasons to deny the requests. Therefore, in accordance with section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, Commerce is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determinations to no later than 130 days after the day on which the investigations were initiated, i.e., April 17, 2018. Accordingly, Commerce will issue the preliminary determinations no later than August 27, 2018.3 In accordance with section 705(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determinations of these investigations will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determinations, unless postponed at a later date. This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1). 2 See the petitioners’ letter re: Glycine from the People’s Republic of China, India and Thailand: Request to Extend Deadline for Preliminary Determinations, dated May 22, 2018. 3 See 19 CFR 351.303(b)(1) and (2). Postponing the preliminary determination to 130 days after initiation would place the deadline on Saturday, August 25, 2018. Commerce’s practice dictates that where a deadline falls on a weekend or a federal holiday, the appropriate deadline is the next business day. This date reflects the next business day after the deadline of August 25, 2018. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ‘‘Next Business Day’’ Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the Order are certain folding gift boxes. 
Folding gift boxes are a type of folding or knock-down carton 
manufactured from paper or paperboard. Folding gift boxes are produced 
from a variety of recycled and virgin paper or paperboard materials, 
including, but not limited to, clay-coated paper or paperboard and 
kraft (bleached or unbleached) paper or paperboard. The scope of the 
Order excludes gift boxes manufactured from paper or paperboard of a 
thickness of more than 0.8 millimeters, corrugated paperboard, or paper 
mache. The scope also excludes those gift boxes for which no side of 
the box, when assembled, is at least nine inches in length.
    Folding gift boxes included in the scope are typically decorated 
with a holiday motif using various processes, including printing, 
embossing, debossing, and foil stamping, but may also be plain white or 
printed with a single color. The subject merchandise includes folding 
gift boxes, with or without handles, whether finished or unfinished, 
and whether in one-piece or multi-piece configuration. One-piece gift 
boxes are die-cut or otherwise formed so that the top, bottom, and 
sides form a single, contiguous unit. Two-piece gift boxes are those 
with a folded bottom and a folded top as separate pieces. Folding gift 
boxes are generally packaged in shrink-wrap, cellophane, or other 
packaging materials, in single or multi-box packs for sale to the 
retail customer. The scope excludes folding gift boxes that have a 
retailer's name, logo, trademark or similar company information printed 
prominently on the box's top exterior (such folding gift boxes are 
often known as ``not-for-resale'' gift boxes or ``give-away'' gift 
boxes and may be provided by department and specialty stores at no 
charge to their retail customers). The scope of the Order also excludes 
folding gift boxes where both the outside of the box is a single color 
and the box is not packaged in shrink-wrap, cellophane, other resin-
based packaging films, or paperboard.
    Imports of the subject merchandise are classified under Harmonized 
Tariff Schedules of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 4819.20.0040 
and 4819.50.4060. These subheadings also cover products that are 
outside the scope of the Order. Furthermore, although the HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our 
written description of the scope of the Order is dispositive.
Analysis of Comments Received
    All issues raised in this sunset review, including the likelihood 
of continuation or recurrence of dumping and the magnitude of the 
margins likely to prevail if the Order were revoked, are addressed in 
the Issues and Decision Memorandum,\6\ dated concurrently with, and 
hereby adopted by this notice. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a

Final Results of Review
    Pursuant to sections 751(c)(1) and 752(c)(1) and (3) of the Act, we

weighted-average dumping margins above de minimis.
