(collectively, the domestic interested parties), within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i).3 The domestic interested parties claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as a manufacturer of a domestic like product in the United States, and under section 771(9)(E) and (F) of the Act as a trade association whose members are producers of a domestic like product in the United States. On March 7, 2019, we received a complete substantive response from domestic interested parties within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i).4 We received no substantive responses from respondent interested parties with respect to the Order covered by this sunset review, nor was a hearing requested. Commerce received no comments on the adequacy of responses in this sunset review. Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), Commerce is conducting an expedited (120-day) sunset review of this order. Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the Order is laminated woven sacks. For a complete description of the scope of the Order, see the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum.5 Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in this review, including the likelihood of continuation or recurrence of dumping in the event of revocation and the magnitude of the margins of dumping likely to prevail if the Order were revoked, are listed in the Appendix to this notice, and addressed in the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS).

In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Final Results of Sunset Reviews Pursuant to sections 751(c)(1) and 752(c)(1) and (3) of the Act, we determine that revocation of the antidumping duty Order on laminated woven sacks from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, and that the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail would be weighted-average dumping margins up to 91.73 percent. Notification to Interested Parties This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to an administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction.
