The product covered by this antidumping duty order is saccharin. Saccharin is defined as a non–nutritive sweetener used in beverages and foods, personal care products such as toothpaste, table top sweeteners, and animal feeds. It is also used in metalworking fluids. There are four primary chemical compositions of saccharin: (1) Sodium saccharin (American Chemical Society Chemical Abstract Service (‘‘CAS’’) Registry 128– 44–44); (2) calcium saccharin (CAS Registry 6485–34–34); (3) acid (or insoluble) saccharin (CAS Registry 81– 07–07); and (4) research grade saccharin. Most of the U.S.-produced and imported grades of saccharin from the PRC are sodium and calcium saccharin, which are available in granular, powder, spray–dried powder, and liquid forms.

The merchandise subject to this order is currently classifiable under subheading 2925.11.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) and includes all types of saccharin imported under this HTSUS subheading, including research and specialized grades. Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the Department’s written description of the scope of this order remains dispositive. .

Order on Saccharin Not to Be Revoked Pursuant to PMC Specialties' Request:  U.S. Department of Commerce Issues Preliminary Changed Circumstances Review of Saccharin from China.

On December 1, 2009, the U.S. Department of Commerce published the Preliminary of its antidumping duty changed circumstances review of saccharin from China.  The Department of Commerce determined that PMC Specialties Group did not present sufficient evidence of changed circumstances to warrant revocation of the order.  PMC requested the changed circumstances review seeking revocation of the order based upon no interest by the U.S. domestic saccharin industry in continuing the order.  Members of the U.S. domestic industry, including Kinetic Industries, opposed the changed circumstances review, however, and PMC has stopped participating in the review.
