New Zhongya’s request, stating that it underwent no changes other than the change in the name, was accompanied by supporting documents from Chinese government authorities,6 recognizing and approving the name change. Specifically, New Zhongya stated that no changes were made in personnel, management, ownership, facilities, customers, suppliers, etc. In response to this request, on December 27, 2011, the Department initiated a CCR, and on January 27, 2012, the Department issued a questionnaire to New Zhongya. New Zhongya filed its questionnaire response on February 24, 2012. Its submission included organizational charts, employment contracts, board meeting minutes, monthly income statements and balance sheets, a product list, full lists of suppliers and home- and U.S.market customers, and sample supplier and customer invoices, as well as narrative responses confirming a name change from New Zhongya to Guangdong Zhongya. The petitioner in this proceeding, Aluminum Extrusions Fair Trade Committee, did not comment on New Zhongya’s request or the Preliminary Results issued by the Department. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order is aluminum extrusions which are shapes and forms, produced by an extrusion process, made from aluminum alloys having metallic elements corresponding to the alloy series designations published by The Aluminum Association commencing with the numbers 1, 3, and 6 (or proprietary equivalents or other certifying body equivalents). Specifically, the subject merchandise made from aluminum alloy with an Aluminum Association series designation commencing with the number 1 contains not less than 99 percent aluminum by weight. The 5 See Letter from New Zhongya to the Department, ‘‘Extruded Aluminum from China’’ (request for Changed Circumstances Review), dated November 7, 2011. 6 These Chinese government authorities include the Bureau of Foreign Trade & Economic Cooperation of High and New Technology Industrial Development Zone of Zhaoqing and the Administration Bureau for Industry and Commerce of Zhaoqing City. PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 subject merchandise made from aluminum alloy with an Aluminum Association series designation commencing with the number 3 contains manganese as the major alloying element, with manganese accounting for not more than 3.0 percent of total materials by weight. The subject merchandise is made from an aluminum alloy with an Aluminum Association series designation commencing with the number 6 contains magnesium and silicon as the major alloying elements, with magnesium accounting for at least 0.1 percent but not more than 2.0 percent of total materials by weight, and silicon accounting for at least 0.1 percent but not more than 3.0 percent of total materials by weight. The subject aluminum extrusions are properly identified by a four-digit alloy series without either a decimal point or leading letter. Illustrative examples from among the approximately 160 registered alloys that may characterize the subject merchandise are as follows: 1350, 3003, and 6060. Aluminum extrusions are produced and imported in a wide variety of shapes and forms, including, but not limited to, hollow profiles, other solid profiles, pipes, tubes, bars, and rods. Aluminum extrusions that are drawn subsequent to extrusion (‘‘drawn aluminum’’) are also included in the scope. Aluminum extrusions are produced and imported with a variety of finishes (both coatings and surface treatments), and types of fabrication. The types of coatings and treatments applied to subject aluminum extrusions include, but are not limited to, extrusions that are mill finished (i.e., without any coating or further finishing), brushed, buffed, polished, anodized (including bright-dip anodized), liquid painted, or powder coated. Aluminum extrusions may also be fabricated, i.e., prepared for assembly. Such operations would include, but are not limited to, extrusions that are cut-to-length, machined, drilled, punched, notched, bent, stretched, knurled, swedged, mitered, chamfered, threaded, and spun. The subject merchandise includes aluminum extrusions that are finished (coated, painted, etc.), fabricated, or any combination thereof. Subject aluminum extrusions may be described at the time of importation as parts for final finished products that are assembled after importation, including, but not limited to, window frames, door frames, solar panels, curtain walls, or furniture. Such parts that otherwise meet the definition of aluminum extrusions are included in the scope. E:\FR\FM\06SEN1.SGM 06SEN1 TKELLEY on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 173 / Thursday, September 6, 2012 / Notices The scope includes the aluminum extrusion components that are attached (e.g., by welding or fasteners) to form subassemblies, i.e., partially assembled merchandise unless imported as part of the ‘‘finished goods kit’’ defined further below. The scope does not include the non-aluminum extrusion components of subassemblies or subject kits. Subject extrusions may be identified with reference to their end use, such as fence posts, electrical conduits, door thresholds, carpet trim, or heat sinks (that do not meet the finished heat sink exclusionary language below). Such goods are subject merchandise if they otherwise meet the scope definition, regardless of whether they are ready for use at the time of importation. The following aluminum extrusion products are excluded: Aluminum extrusions made from aluminum alloy with an Aluminum Association series designations commencing with the number 2 and containing in excess of 1.5 percent copper by weight; Aluminum extrusions made from aluminum alloy with an Aluminum Association series designation commencing with the number 5 and containing in excess of 1.0 percent magnesium by weight; and aluminum extrusions made from aluminum alloy with an Aluminum Association series designation commencing with the number 7 and containing in excess of 2.0 percent zinc by weight. The scope also excludes finished merchandise containing aluminum extrusions as parts that are fully and permanently assembled and completed at the time of entry, such as finished windows with glass, doors with glass or vinyl, picture frames with glass pane and backing material, and solar panels. The scope also excludes finished goods containing aluminum extrusions that are entered unassembled in a ‘‘finished goods kit.’’ A finished goods kit is understood to mean a packaged combination of parts that contains, at the time of importation, all of the necessary parts to fully assemble a final finished good and requires no further finishing or fabrication, such as cutting or punching, and is assembled ‘‘as is’’ into a finished product. An imported product will not be considered a ‘‘finished goods kit’’ and, therefore, excluded from the scope of the investigation merely by including fasteners such as screws, bolts, etc. in the packaging with an aluminum extrusion product. The scope also excludes aluminum alloy sheet or plates produced by other than the extrusion process, such as aluminum products produced by a method of casting. Cast aluminum VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:45 Sep 05, 2012 Jkt 226001 products are properly identified by four digits with a decimal point between the third and fourth digit. A letter may also precede the four digits. The following Aluminum Association designations are representative of aluminum alloys for casting: 208.0, 295.0, 308.0, 355.0, C355.0, 356.0, A356.0, A357.0, 360.0, 366.0, 380.0, A380.0, 413.0, 443.0, 514.0, 518.1, and 712.0. The scope also excludes pure, unwrought aluminum in any form. The scope also excludes collapsible tubular containers composed of metallic elements corresponding to alloy code 1080A as designated by the Aluminum Association where the tubular container (excluding the nozzle) meets each of the following dimensional characteristics: (1) Length of 37 millimeters (‘‘mm’’) or 62 mm, (2) outer diameter of 11.0 mm or 12.7 mm, and (3) wall thickness not exceeding 0.13 mm. Also excluded from the scope of this order are finished heat sinks. Finished heat sinks are fabricated heat sinks made from aluminum extrusions the design and production of which are organized around meeting certain specified thermal performance requirements and which have been fully, albeit not necessarily individually, tested to comply with such requirements. Imports of the subject merchandise are provided for under the following categories of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTS’’): 7604.21.0000, 7604.29.1000, 7604.29.3010, 7604.29.3050, 7604.29.5030, 7604.29.5060, 7608.20.0030, 7608.20.0090, 9506.11.4080, 9506.51.4000, 9506.51.6000, 9506.59.4040, 9506.70.2090, 9506.99.0510, 9506.99.0520, 9506.99.0530, 9506.99.1500, 9506.99.2000, 9506.99.2580, 9506.99.2800, 9506.99.6080, 9507.30.2000, 9507.30.4000, 9507.30.6000, 9507.90.6000, 8419.90.1000, 8302.10.3000, 8302.10.6030, 8302.10.6060, 8302.10.6090, 8302.30.3010, 8302.30.3060, 8302.41.3000, 8302.41.6015, 8302.41.6045, 8302.41.6050, 8302.41.6080, 8302.42.3010, 8302.42.3015, 8302.42.3065, 8302.49.6035, 8302.49.6045, 8302.49.6055, 8302.49.6085, 8302.60.9000, 8306.30.0000, 9403.90.8061, 9403.90.1040, 9403.90.1050, 9403.90.1085, 9403.90.2540, 9403.90.2580, 9403.90.4005, 9403.90.4010, 9403.90.4060, 9403.90.5005, 9403.90.5010, 9403.90.5080, 9403.90.6005, 9403.90.6010, 9403.90.6080, 9403.90.7005, PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 54901 9403.90.7010, 9403.90.7080, 9403.90.8010, 9403.90.8015, 9403.90.8020, 9403.90.8041, 9403.90.8051, 9403.10.00, 9403.20.00, 8479.89.98, 8479.90.94, 8513.90.20, 8302.50.0000, 9506.91.0010, 9506.91.0020, 9506.91.0030, 7615.19.30, 7615.19.50, 7615.19.70, 7615.19.90, 7615.19.10, 7615.20.00, 7616.99.10 and 7616.99.50.

otherwise meet the definition of aluminum extrusions are included in 
the scope.

[[Page 54901]]

The scope includes the aluminum extrusion components that are attached 
(e.g., by welding or fasteners) to form subassemblies, i.e., partially 
assembled merchandise unless imported as part of the ``finished goods 
kit'' defined further below. The scope does not include the non-
aluminum extrusion components of subassemblies or subject kits.
    Subject extrusions may be identified with reference to their end 
use, such as fence posts, electrical conduits, door thresholds, carpet 
trim, or heat sinks (that do not meet the finished heat sink 
exclusionary language below). Such goods are subject merchandise if 
they otherwise meet the scope definition, regardless of whether they 
are ready for use at the time of importation.
    The following aluminum extrusion products are excluded: Aluminum 
extrusions made from aluminum alloy with an Aluminum Association series 
designations commencing with the number 2 and containing in excess of 
1.5 percent copper by weight; Aluminum extrusions made from aluminum 
alloy with an Aluminum Association series designation commencing with 
the number 5 and containing in excess of 1.0 percent magnesium by 
weight; and aluminum extrusions made from aluminum alloy with an 
Aluminum Association series designation commencing with the number 7 
and containing in excess of 2.0 percent zinc by weight.
    The scope also excludes finished merchandise containing aluminum 
extrusions as parts that are fully and permanently assembled and 
completed at the time of entry, such as finished windows with glass, 
doors with glass or vinyl, picture frames with glass pane and backing 
material, and solar panels. The scope also excludes finished goods 
containing aluminum extrusions that are entered unassembled in a 
``finished goods kit.'' A finished goods kit is understood to mean a 
packaged combination of parts that contains, at the time of 
importation, all of the necessary parts to fully assemble a final 
finished good and requires no further finishing or fabrication, such as 
cutting or punching, and is assembled ``as is'' into a finished 
product. An imported product will not be considered a ``finished goods 
kit'' and, therefore, excluded from the scope of the investigation 
merely by including fasteners such as screws, bolts, etc. in the 
packaging with an aluminum extrusion product.
    The scope also excludes aluminum alloy sheet or plates produced by 
other than the extrusion process, such as aluminum products produced by 
a method of casting. Cast aluminum products are properly identified by 
four digits with a decimal point between the third and fourth digit. A 
letter may also precede the four digits. The following Aluminum 
Association designations are representative of aluminum alloys for 
casting: 208.0, 295.0, 308.0, 355.0, C355.0, 356.0, A356.0, A357.0, 
360.0, 366.0, 380.0, A380.0, 413.0, 443.0, 514.0, 518.1, and 712.0. The 
scope also excludes pure, unwrought aluminum in any form.
    The scope also excludes collapsible tubular containers composed of 
metallic elements corresponding to alloy code 1080A as designated by 
the Aluminum Association where the tubular container (excluding the 
nozzle) meets each of the following dimensional characteristics: (1) 
Length of 37 millimeters (``mm'') or 62 mm, (2) outer diameter of 11.0 
mm or 12.7 mm, and (3) wall thickness not exceeding 0.13 mm.
    Also excluded from the scope of this order are finished heat sinks. 
Finished heat sinks are fabricated heat sinks made from aluminum 
extrusions the design and production of which are organized around 
meeting certain specified thermal performance requirements and which 
have been fully, albeit not necessarily individually, tested to comply 
with such requirements.
    Imports of the subject merchandise are provided for under the 
following categories of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United 
States (``HTS''): 7604.21.0000, 7604.29.1000, 7604.29.3010,

7616.99.10 and 7616.99.50. The subject merchandise entered as parts of 
other aluminum products may be classifiable under the following 
additional Chapter 76 subheadings: 7610.10, 7610.90, 7615.19, 7615.20, 
and 7616.99 as well as under other HTS chapters. In addition, fin 
evaporator coils may be classifiable under HTS numbers: 8418.99.80.50 
and 8418.99.80.60. While HTS subheadings are provided for convenience 
and customs purposes, the written description of the scope is 
dispositive.

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review

    Because no parties have submitted comments opposing the 
Department's Preliminary Results, and because there is no other 
information or evidence on the record that calls into question the 
Preliminary Results, the Department determines that Guangdong Zhongya 
is the successor-in-interest to New Zhongya for the purpose of 
determining antidumping duty liability.

Instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to 
suspend liquidation and collect a cash deposit rate of 33.28 percent on 
all shipments of the subject merchandise exported by Guangdong Zhongya 
and entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, on or after 
the publication date of these results of changed circumstances 
review.\7\
