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.
