An applicant must execute and return the grant agreement, accompanied by any additional items required by the grant agreement. B. Administrative and National Policy Requirements.

SUMMARY: On May 23, 2013, the United States Court of International Trade (CIT) sustained the Department of Commerce’s (the Department’s) final results of remand redetermination in which it determined that certain drapery rail kits are outside of the scope of the antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) orders on aluminum extrusions,1 pursuant to the CIT’s remand order in The Rowley Company v.

United States, 893 F.2d 337 (Fed. Cir. 1990) (Timken), as clarified by Diamond Sawblades Mfrs. Coalition v. United States, 626 F.3d 1374 (Fed. Cir. 2010) (Diamond Sawblades), the Department is notifying the public that the final judgment in this case is not in harmony with the Department’s Final Scope Ruling on Drapery Rail Kits 2 and is amending its final scope ruling. DATES: Effective Date: June 3, 2013. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: James Terpstra, AD/CVD Operations, Office 8, Import Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC, 20230; telephone (202) 482–3965. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION Background On November 16, 2011, the Rowley Company (Rowley) submitted a scope request claiming that certain drapery rail kits which it imports are outside the scope of the Orders. The Department issued its Final Scope Ruling on Drapery Rail Kits on February 3, 2012; in that ruling, the Department determined that certain drapery rail kits are within the scope of the Orders. On August 10, 2012, Rowley filed its brief with the Court. On October 19, 2012, the Department asked the Court to grant it a voluntary remand that would allow it to re-examine the determination it reached in its Final Scope Ruling on Drapery Rail Kits. On November 30, 2012, the Court granted the Department’s request for a voluntary remand. In the Remand Results, we found that the drapery rail kits described in the Scope Request constituted ‘‘finished goods kits’’ as described in the scope of the Orders, and, thus, fall outside the scope. The Department found that the drapery rail kits are designed to incorporate readily interchangeable drapes or curtains that can change with users’ needs and are intended to be customizable. On May 23, 2013, the CIT sustained the Department’s Remand Results.3 2 See Memorandum to Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, ‘‘Final Scope Ruling on Drapery Rail Kits’’ (February 3, 2012) (Final Scope Ruling on Drapery Rail Kits). 3 See Remand Order.
