On October 3, 2019, the ITC published its determination, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on innersprings from China, South Africa and Vietnam would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.4 1 See Initiation of Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews, 84 FR 7021 (March 1, 2019) (Notice of Initiation). 2 See Uncovered Innerspring Units from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Antidumping Duty Order, 74 FR 7661 (February 19, 2009); Antidumping Duty Order: Uncovered Innerspring Units from South Africa, 73 FR 75390 (December 11, 2008); and Antidumping Duty Order: Uncovered Innerspring Units from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, 73 FR 75391 (December 11, 2008) (collectively, the Orders). 3 See Uncovered Innerspring Units from the People’s Republic of China, South Africa, and Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Final Results of the Expedited Sunset Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders, 84 FR 32878 (July 10, 2019) (Final Results), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. 4 See Uncovered Innerspring Units from China, South Africa, and Vietnam: Investigation Nos. 731– PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 55285 Scope of the Orders The merchandise covered by these Orders are uncovered innerspring units composed of a series of individual metal springs joined together in sizes corresponding to the sizes of adult mattresses (e.g., twin, twin long, full, full long, queen, California king, and king) and units used in smaller constructions, such as crib and youth mattresses.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On March 1, 2019, Commerce published the initiation of the second 
five-year (sunset) reviews of the antidumping duty orders on uncovered 
innerspring units from China, South Africa, and Vietnam, pursuant to 
section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (the Act), as amended.\1\ 
Commerce received notices of intent to participate in these sunset 
reviews from Leggett & Platt, Incorporated (the domestic interested 
party), within the 15-day period specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). 
The domestic interested party claimed interested party status under

    Commerce received an adequate substantive response to the Notice of 
Initiation from the domestic interested party within the 30-day period 
specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). Commerce received no substantive 
response from any respondent interested parties. In accordance with
