Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised for the final results of this sunset review are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, dated concurrently with this final notice, which is hereby adopted by this VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:45 May 06, 2020 Jkt 250001 notice. The issues discussed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum are the likelihood of continuation or recurrence of dumping, and the magnitude of the margin of dumping likely to prevail if this Order were revoked. 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). ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov.

Administrative Protective Orders This notice also serves as the only reminder to each party 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.
