SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On January 8, 2002, we published the Order on certain folding gift boxes from China.1 On February 1, 2018, we published the notice of initiation of the third sunset review of the Order, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).2 Because domestic interested parties submitted a complete and adequate response, but respondent interested parties did not participate in the sunset review, we conducted the sunset review on an expedited basis, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2).3 As a result of this expedited sunset review, we determined that revocation of the Order would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and, therefore, notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins of dumping likely to prevail should the order be revoked, pursuant to sections 751(c)(1) and 752(c) of the Act.4 On June 29, 2018, the ITC published its determination, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the Order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.5 daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Scope of the Order The products covered by the Order are certain folding gift boxes.

pursuant to sections 751(c) and 752(a) of the Act, that revocation of
