SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 3, 2011, the Department initiated the third sunset review of the antidumping duty orders on Hand Tools from the PRC pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’). See Initiation of FiveYear (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 76 FR 89 (January 3, 2011).

On August 10, 2011, the ITC determined, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on Hand Tools from the PRC would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States. See Heavy Forged Hand Tools From China, 76 FR 50755 (August 16, 2011), and USITC Publication 4250 (August 2011), Heavy Forged Hand Tools from China: Investigation Nos. 731–TA–457–A–D (Third Review). Scope of the Orders The products covered by these orders are Hand Tools comprising the following classes or kinds of merchandise: (1) Hammers and sledges with heads over 1.5 kg (3.33 pounds); (2) bars over 18 inches in length, track tools and wedges; (3) picks and mattocks; and (4) axes, adzes and similar hewing tools. Hand Tools include heads for drilling hammers, sledges, axes, mauls, picks and mattocks, which may or may not be VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:16 Aug 19, 2011 Jkt 223001 painted, which may or may not be finished, or which may or may not be imported with handles; assorted bar products and track tools including wrecking bars, digging bars, and tampers; and steel wood splitting wedges. Hand Tools are manufactured through a hot forge operation in which steel is sheared to required length, heated to forging temperature, and formed to final shape on forging equipment using dies specific to the desired product shape and size. Depending on the product, finishing operations may include shot blasting, grinding, polishing and painting, and the insertion of handles for handled products. Hand Tools are currently provided for under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States subheadings: 8205.20.60, 8205.59.30, 8201.30.00, and 8201.40.60. Specifically excluded from these orders are hammers and sledges with heads 1.5 kg. (3.33 pounds) in weight and under, hoes and rakes, and bars 18 inches in length and under. The tariff classifications are provided for convenience and customs purposes; however, the written description of the scope of the orders is dispositive. Continuation of the Orders As a result of the determinations by the Department and the ITC that revocation of the antidumping duty orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act, the Department hereby orders the continuation of the antidumping duty orders on Hand Tools from the PRC. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect antidumping duty cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise. The effective date of continuation of the orders will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of continuation. Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act, the Department intends to initiate the next five-year review of the orders no later than 30 days prior to the fifth anniversary of the effective date of continuation. This five-year (sunset) review and this notice are in accordance with sections 751(c) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(f)(4). Dated: August 16, 2011.

DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE International Trade Administration Application(s) for Duty-Free Entry of Scientific Instruments Pursuant to Section 6(c) of the Educational, Scientific and Cultural Materials Importation Act of 1966 (Pub. L. 89–651, as amended by Pub. L. 106– 36; 80 Stat. 897; 15 CFR part 301), we invite comments on the question of whether instruments of equivalent scientific value, for the purposes for which the instruments shown below are intended to be used, are being manufactured in the United States. Comments must comply with 15 CFR 301.5(a)(3) and (4) of the regulations and be postmarked on or before September 12, 2011. Address written comments to Statutory Import Programs Staff, Room 3720, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230. Applications may be examined between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the U.S. Department of Commerce in Room 3720. Docket Number: 11–026. Applicant: Purdue University, 745 Agriculture Mall Dr., West Lafayette, IN 47907. Instrument: SPSx Moisture Sorption Analyzer. Manufacturer: Projekt Messtechnik, Germany. Intended Use: The SPSx will be used to monitor the water-solid interaction behavior of food ingredients (both amorphous and crystalline) and blends of powdered food ingredients. The instrument monitors water-solid interactions by taking gravimetric measurement of samples continuously using a microbalance to monitor sample weight after exposure to the programmed relative humidity and temperature conditions. The SPSx is the leading instrument in monitoring multiple samples exposed to the same experimental conditions by use of a sampling wheel and enclosed top weighing balance, allowing for the measurement of up to 23 samples in a single experimental protocol. A unique feature of this instrument is that it monitors multiple samples at one time, ensuring that conditions do not vary from one experiment to the next. Justification for Duty-Free Entry: There are no instruments of the same general category being manufactured in the United States. Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: March 23, 2011. Dated: August 16, 2011. Gregory Campbell, Director, IA Subsidies Enforcement Office.
