SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this antidumping duty order are all grades 
of garlic, whole or separated into constituent cloves, whether or not 
peeled, fresh, chilled, frozen, provisionally preserved, or packed in 
water or other neutral substance, but not prepared or preserved by the 
addition of other ingredients or heat processing. The differences 
between grades are based on color, size, sheathing, and level of decay.
    The scope of this order does not include the following: (a) garlic 
that has been mechanically harvested and that is primarily, but not 
exclusively, destined for non-fresh use; or (b) garlic that has been 
specially prepared and cultivated prior to planting and then harvested 
and otherwise prepared for use as seed.
    The subject merchandise is used principally as a food product and 
for seasoning. The subject garlic is currently classifiable under 
subheadings 0703.20.0010, 0703.20.0020, 0703.20.0090, 0710.80.7060, 
0710.80.9750, 0711.90.6000, and 2005.90.9700 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS''). Although the HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our 
written description of the scope of this order is dispositive. In order 
to be excluded from the antidumping duty order, garlic entered under 
the HTSUS subheadings listed above that is (1) mechanically harvested 
and primarily, but not exclusively, destined for non-fresh use or (2) 
specially prepared and cultivated prior to planting and then harvested 
and otherwise prepared for use as seed must be accompanied by 
declarations to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to 
that effect.

Amendment to Final Determination

    In accordance with sections 751(a) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, on

petitioners submitted rebuttal comments to one of the ministerial error 
allegations filed by Jinan Yipin, Linshu Dading, Sunny, and Harmoni.
    After analyzing all interested parties' comments and rebuttal 
comments, we have determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), that the Department has made ministerial 
errors in the final determination calculations for Harmoni, Jinan 
Yipin, Linshu Dading, FHTK, and Ziyang. In addition, when examining 
FHTK's and Ziyang's ministerial error allegations, the Department found 
additional ministerial errors that affected our margin calculations in 
the Final Results. For a detailed discussion of these ministerial 
errors, and our analysis, see Memorandum from Barbara E. Tillman to 
Joseph A. Spetrini re: Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Amended
