Duty Order

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, formerly Import Administration,

[[Page 77651]]

    International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of 
Commerce (the ``Department'') and the International Trade Commission 
(the ``ITC'') that revocation of the antidumping duty order on low 
enriched uranium (``LEU'') from France would likely lead to a 
continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an 
industry in the United States, the Department is publishing a notice of 
continuation of the antidumping duty order.

DATES: Effective Date: December 24, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Hilary Sadler, AD/CVD Operations, 
Office VII, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 3, 2012, the Department initiated a sunset review of 
the antidumping duty order on LEU from France, pursuant to section 
751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ``Act'').\1\ As a 
result of its review, the Department determined that revocation of the 
order on LEU from France would likely lead to a continuation or 
recurrence of dumping and, therefore, notified the ITC of the magnitude 
of the margins likely to prevail should the order be revoked.\2\ On 
December 12, 2013, the ITC published its determination, pursuant to 
section 751(c) of the Act that revocation of the antidumping duty order 
on LEU from France would lead to a continuation or recurrence of 
material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably 
foreseeable time.\3\

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by the order is all low enriched uranium 
(``LEU''). LEU is enriched uranium hexafluoride (UF6) with a 
U\235\ product assay of less than 20 percent that has not been 
converted into another chemical form, such as UO2, or 
fabricated into nuclear fuel assemblies, regardless of the means by 
which the LEU is produced (including LEU produced through the 
downblending of highly enriched uranium).
    Certain merchandise is outside the scope of the order. 
Specifically, the order does not cover enriched uranium hexafluoride 
with a U\235\ assay of 20 percent or greater, also known as highly 
enriched uranium. In addition, fabricated LEU is not covered by the 
scope of the order. For purposes of the order, fabricated uranium is 
defined as enriched uranium dioxide (UO2), whether or not 
contained in nuclear fuel rods or assemblies. Natural uranium 
concentrates (U3O8) with a U\235\ concentration 
of no greater than 0.711 percent and natural uranium concentrates 
converted into uranium hexafluoride with a U\235\ concentration of no 
greater than 0.711 percent are not covered by the scope of the order.
    Also excluded from the order is LEU owned by a foreign utility end-
user and imported into the United States by or for such end-user solely 
for purposes of conversion by a U.S. fabricator into uranium dioxide 
(UO2) and/or fabrication into fuel assemblies so long as the 
uranium dioxide and/or fuel assemblies deemed to incorporate such 
imported LEU (i) remain in the possession and control of the U.S. 
fabricator, the foreign end-user, or their designed transporter(s) 
while in U.S. customs territory, and (ii) are reexported within 
eighteen (18) months of entry of the LEU for consumption by the end-
user in a nuclear reactor outside the United States. Such entries must 
be accompanied by the certifications of the importer and end user.
    The merchandise subject to this order is classified in the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') at 
subheading 2844.20.0020. Subject merchandise may also enter under 
2844.20.0030, 2844.20.0050, and 2844.40.00. Although the HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written description of the merchandise subject to the order is 
dispositive.

Continuation of the Order

    As a result of the determinations by the Department and the ITC 
that revocation of the antidumping duty order would likely lead to a 
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 order on LEU from France. 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 the continuation of the order 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 order not later than 30 days 
prior to the effective date of the continuation.
    The five-year (``sunset'') review and this notice are in accordance 
with section 751(c) of the Act and published pursuant to section 
777(i)(1) of the Act.
