On November 25, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the ``Department'') received a request on behalf of petitioners, the American Furniture Manufacturers Committee for Legal Trade and its individual members (the ``AFMC'' or ``petitioners''), for a changed circumstances review and a request to revoke in part the antidumping duty (``AD'') order on wooden bedroom furniture from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') with respect to certain toy boxes.

Barium Carbonate from the People's Republic of China: Final Results of the Expedited Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order
On September 2, 2008, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty order on barium carbonate from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``Act''). See Initiation of Five-year (``Sunset'') Review, 73 FR 51275 (September 2, 2008) (``Sunset Initiation''); see also Antidumping Duty Order: Barium Carbonate from the People's Republic of China, 68 FR 56619 (October 1, 2003) (``Order''). On September 16, 2008, Chemical Products Corporation (``CPC''), the petitioner in the original barium carbonate investigation, notified the Department that it intended to participate in the sunset review. The Department did not receive a substantive response from any respondent party. Based on the notice of intent to participate and adequate response filed by the domestic interested party, and the lack of response from any respondent interested party, the Department conducted an expedited sunset review of the Order pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 C.F.R. 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2). As a result of this sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of the Order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, at the levels indicated in the ``Final Results of Sunset Review'' section of this notice, infra.
Fisheries of the Exclusive Economic Zone Off Alaska; Inseason Adjustment to the 2009 Bering Sea Pollock Total Allowable Catch Amount; Correction
This document corrects the comment period and a date for a temporary rule that published in the Federal Register on January 2, 2009 (74 FR 38). That rule adjusted the 2009 total allowable catch amount (TAC) for the Bering Sea pollock fishery to ensure the Bering Sea pollock TAC does not exceed the appropriate amount based on the best available scientific information for pollock in the Bering Sea subarea. One typographical error specifies that comments are due on the date of publication and another typographical error specifies that comments are due on January 13, 2008. The correct date is January 13, 2009. The date that data became available is also corrected.
