See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 79 FR 37292 (July 1, 2014) (Initiation). Because the domestic interested parties did not participate in this sunset review, the Department is revoking the countervailing duty order.

Unless specifically excluded, lawn groomers that are designed to perform at least one of the functions listed above are included in the scope of this order, even if the lawn groomer is designed to perform additional non-subject functions (e.g., mowing). All lawn groomers are designed to incorporate a hitch, of any configuration, which allows the product to be towed behind a vehicle. Lawn groomers that are designed to incorporate both a hitch and a push handle, of any type, are also covered by the scope of this order. The hitch and handle may be permanently attached or removable, and they may be attached on opposite sides or on the same side of the lawn groomer. Lawn groomers designed to incorporate a hitch, but where the hitch is not attached to the lawn groomer, are also included in the scope of the order. Lawn sweepers consist of a frame, as well as a series of brushes attached to an axle or shaft which allows the brushing component to rotate. Lawn sweepers also include a container (which is a receptacle into which debris swept from the lawn or turf is deposited) supported by the frame. Aerators consist of a frame, as well as an aerating component that is attached to an axle or shaft which allows the aerating component to rotate. The aerating component is made up of a set of knives fixed to a plate (known as a ‘‘plug aerator’’), a series of discs with protruding spikes (a ‘‘spike aerator’’), or any other configuration, that are designed to create holes or cavities in a lawn or turf surface. Dethatchers consist of a frame, as well as a series of tines designed to remove material (e.g., dead grass or leaves) or other debris from the lawn or turf. The dethatcher tines are attached to and suspended from the frame. Lawn spreaders consist of a frame, as well as a hopper (i.e., a container of any size, shape, or material) that holds a media to be spread on the lawn or turf. The media can be distributed by means of a rotating spreader plate that broadcasts the media (broadcast spreader), a rotating agitator that allows the media to be released at a consistent rate (drop spreader), or any other configuration. Lawn dethatchers with a net fullyassembled weight (i.e., without packing, additional weights, or accessories) of 100 pounds or less are covered by the scope of the order. Other lawn groomers—sweepers, aerators, and spreaders—with a net fully-assembled weight (i.e., without packing, additional weights, or accessories) of 200 pounds VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:55 Sep 22, 2014 Jkt 232001 or less are covered by the scope of the order. Also included in the scope of the order are modular units, consisting of a chassis that is designed to incorporate a hitch, where the hitch may or may not be included, which allows modules that perform sweeping, aerating, dethatching, or spreading operations to be interchanged. Modular units—when imported with one or more lawn grooming modules—with a fully assembled net weight (i.e., without packing, additional weights, or accessories) of 200 pounds or less when including a single module, are included in the scope of the order. Modular unit chassis, imported without a lawn grooming module and with a fully assembled net weight (i.e., without packing, additional weights, or accessories) of 125 pounds or less, are also covered by the scope of the order. When imported separately, modules that are designed to perform subject lawn grooming functions (i.e., sweeping, aerating, dethatching, or spreading), with a fully assembled net weight (i.e., without packing, additional weights, or accessories) of 75 pounds or less, and that are imported with or without a hitch, are also covered by the scope. Lawn groomers, assembled or unassembled, are covered by this order. For purposes of this order, ‘‘unassembled lawn groomers’’ consist of either (1) all parts necessary to make a fully assembled lawn groomer, or (2) any combination of parts, constituting a less than complete, unassembled lawn groomer, with a minimum of two of the following ‘‘major components.’’ (1) An assembled or unassembled brush housing designed to be used in a lawn sweeper, where a brush housing is defined as a component housing the brush assembly, and consisting of a wrapper which covers the brush assembly and two end plates attached to the wrapper; (2) A sweeper brush; (3) An aerator or dethatcher weight tray, or similar component designed to allow weights of any sort to be added to the unit; (4) A spreader hopper; (5) A rotating spreader plate or agitator, or other component designed for distributing media in a lawn spreader; (6) Dethatcher tines; (7) Aerator spikes, plugs, or other aerating component; or (8) A hitch, defined as a complete hitch assembly comprising of at least the following two major hitch components, tubing and a hitch plate regardless of the absence of minor components such as pin or fasteners. PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Individual hitch component parts, such as tubing, hitch plates, pins or fasteners are not covered by the scope. The major components or parts of lawn groomers that are individually covered by this order under the term ‘‘certain parts thereof’’ are: (1) Brush housings, where the wrapper and end plates incorporating the brush assembly may be individual pieces or a single piece; and (2) weight trays, or similar components designed to allow weights of any sort to be added to a dethatcher or an aerator unit. The scope of this order specifically excludes the following: (1) Agricultural implements designed to work (e.g., churn, burrow, till, etc.) soil, such as cultivators, harrows, and plows; (2) lawn or farm carts and wagons that do not groom lawns; (3) grooming products incorporating a motor or an engine for the purpose of operating and/or propelling the lawn groomer; (4) lawn groomers that are designed to be hand held or are designed to be attached directly to the frame of a vehicle, rather than towed; (5) ‘‘push’’ lawn grooming products that incorporate a push handle rather than a hitch, and which are designed solely to be manually operated; (6) dethatchers with a net assembled weight (i.e., without packing, additional weights, or accessories) of more than 100 pounds, or lawn groomers—sweepers, aerators, and spreaders—with a net fully-assembled weight (i.e., without packing, additional weights, or accessories) of more than 200 pounds; and (7) lawn rollers designed to flatten grass and turf, including lawn rollers which incorporate an aerator component (e.g., ‘‘drum-style’’ spike aerators).

These HTSUS provisions are given for reference and customs purposes only, and the description of merchandise is dispositive for determining the scope of the product included in this order. Determination To Revoke Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(3), if no domestic interested party files a notice of intent to participate, the Department shall, within 90 days after the initiation of the review, issue a final determination revoking the order.

Cash Deposit and Assessment of Duties Pursuant to sections 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i), the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to terminate the suspension of liquidation of the merchandise subject to this order entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, on or after August 3, 2014. The Department intends to notify CBP 15 days after publication of this notice to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to discontinue the collection of cash deposits on entries of the subject merchandise, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, on or after August 3, 2014. Entries of subject merchandise prior to the effective date of revocation will continue to be subject to suspension of liquidation and countervailing duty deposit requirements. The Department will complete any pending administrative review of this order and conduct administrative review of subject merchandise entered prior to the effective date of revocation in response to appropriately filed requests for review. The Department is issuing and publishing the final results and this notice in accordance with sections 751(c) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: September 17, 2014. Ronald K.

[[Page 56770]]

groomers are defined as lawn sweepers, aerators, dethatchers, and 
spreaders. Unless specifically excluded, lawn groomers that are 
designed to perform at least one of the functions listed above are 
included in the scope of this order, even if the lawn groomer is 
designed to perform additional non-subject functions (e.g., mowing).
    All lawn groomers are designed to incorporate a hitch, of any 
configuration, which allows the product to be towed behind a vehicle. 
Lawn groomers that are designed to incorporate both a hitch and a push 
handle, of any type, are also covered by the scope of this order. The 
hitch and handle may be permanently attached or removable, and they may 
be attached on opposite sides or on the same side of the lawn groomer. 
Lawn groomers designed to incorporate a hitch, but where the hitch is 
not attached to the lawn groomer, are also included in the scope of the 
order.
    Lawn sweepers consist of a frame, as well as a series of brushes 
attached to an axle or shaft which allows the brushing component to 
rotate. Lawn sweepers also include a container (which is a receptacle 
into which debris swept from the lawn or turf is deposited) supported 
by the frame. Aerators consist of a frame, as well as an aerating 
component that is attached to an axle or shaft which allows the 
aerating component to rotate. The aerating component is made up of a 
set of knives fixed to a plate (known as a ``plug aerator''), a series 
of discs with protruding spikes (a ``spike aerator''), or any other 
configuration, that are designed to create holes or cavities in a lawn 
or turf surface. Dethatchers consist of a frame, as well as a series of 
tines designed to remove material (e.g., dead grass or leaves) or other 
debris from the lawn or turf. The dethatcher tines are attached to and 
suspended from the frame. Lawn spreaders consist of a frame, as well as 
a hopper (i.e., a container of any size, shape, or material) that holds 
a media to be spread on the lawn or turf. The media can be distributed 
by means of a rotating spreader plate that broadcasts the media 
(broadcast spreader), a rotating agitator that allows the media to be 
released at a consistent rate (drop spreader), or any other 
configuration.
    Lawn dethatchers with a net fully-assembled weight (i.e., without 
packing, additional weights, or accessories) of 100 pounds or less are 
covered by the scope of the order. Other lawn groomers--sweepers, 
aerators, and spreaders--with a net fully-assembled weight (i.e., 
without packing, additional weights, or accessories) of 200 pounds or 
less are covered by the scope of the order.
    Also included in the scope of the order are modular units, 
consisting of a chassis that is designed to incorporate a hitch, where 
the hitch may or may not be included, which allows modules that perform 
sweeping, aerating, dethatching, or spreading operations to be 
interchanged. Modular units--when imported with one or more lawn 
grooming modules--with a fully assembled net weight (i.e., without 
packing, additional weights, or accessories) of 200 pounds or less when 
including a single module, are included in the scope of the order. 
Modular unit chassis, imported without a lawn grooming module and with 
a fully assembled net weight (i.e., without packing, additional 
weights, or accessories) of 125 pounds or less, are also covered by the 
scope of the order. When imported separately, modules that are designed 
to perform subject lawn grooming functions (i.e., sweeping, aerating, 
dethatching, or spreading), with a fully assembled net weight (i.e., 
without packing, additional weights, or accessories) of 75 pounds or 
less, and that are imported with or without a hitch, are also covered 
by the scope.
    Lawn groomers, assembled or unassembled, are covered by this order. 
For purposes of this order, ``unassembled lawn groomers'' consist of 
either (1) all parts necessary to make a fully assembled lawn groomer, 
or (2) any combination of parts, constituting a less than complete, 
unassembled lawn groomer, with a minimum of two of the following 
``major components.''
    (1) An assembled or unassembled brush housing designed to be used 
in a lawn sweeper, where a brush housing is defined as a component 
housing the brush assembly, and consisting of a wrapper which covers 
the brush assembly and two end plates attached to the wrapper;
    (2) A sweeper brush;
    (3) An aerator or dethatcher weight tray, or similar component 
designed to allow weights of any sort to be added to the unit;
    (4) A spreader hopper;
    (5) A rotating spreader plate or agitator, or other component 
designed for distributing media in a lawn spreader;
    (6) Dethatcher tines;
    (7) Aerator spikes, plugs, or other aerating component; or
    (8) A hitch, defined as a complete hitch assembly comprising of at 
least the following two major hitch components, tubing and a hitch 
plate regardless of the absence of minor components such as pin or 
fasteners. Individual hitch component parts, such as tubing, hitch 
plates, pins or fasteners are not covered by the scope.
    The major components or parts of lawn groomers that are 
individually covered by this order under the term ``certain parts 
thereof'' are: (1) Brush housings, where the wrapper and end plates 
incorporating the brush assembly may be individual pieces or a single 
piece; and (2) weight trays, or similar components designed to allow 
weights of any sort to be added to a dethatcher or an aerator unit.
    The scope of this order specifically excludes the following: (1) 
Agricultural implements designed to work (e.g., churn, burrow, till, 
etc.) soil, such as cultivators, harrows, and plows; (2) lawn or farm 
carts and wagons that do not groom lawns; (3) grooming products 
incorporating a motor or an engine for the purpose of operating and/or 
propelling the lawn groomer; (4) lawn groomers that are designed to be 
hand held or are designed to be attached directly to the frame of a 
vehicle, rather than towed; (5) ``push'' lawn grooming products that 
incorporate a push handle rather than a hitch, and which are designed 
solely to be manually operated; (6) dethatchers with a net assembled 
weight (i.e., without packing, additional weights, or accessories) of 
more than 100 pounds, or lawn groomers--sweepers, aerators, and 
spreaders--with a net fully-assembled weight (i.e., without packing, 
additional weights, or accessories) of more than 200 pounds; and (7) 
lawn rollers designed to flatten grass and turf, including lawn rollers 
which incorporate an aerator component (e.g., ``drum-style'' spike 
aerators).
    The lawn groomers that are the subject of this order are currently 
classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS) statistical reporting numbers 8432.40.0000, 8432.80.0000,

Determination To Revoke

    Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(3), if no domestic interested party files a 
notice of intent to participate, the Department shall, within 90 days 
after the initiation of the review, issue a final determination 
revoking the order. Because domestic interested parties did

not file a notice of intent to participate in this sunset review, the 
Department finds that no domestic party is participating in this sunset 
review. Therefore, consistent with 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i) and section 
751(d)(2) of the Act, we are revoking this countervailing duty order 
effective August 3, 2014, the fifth anniversary of the date the 
Department published the countervailing duty order.

Cash Deposit and Assessment of Duties

    Pursuant to sections 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.222(i)(2)(i), the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) to terminate the suspension of liquidation of the 
merchandise subject to this order entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
on or after August 3, 2014. The Department intends to notify CBP 15 
days after publication of this notice to terminate the suspension of 
liquidation and to discontinue the collection of cash deposits on 
entries of the subject merchandise, entered or withdrawn from 
warehouse, on or after August 3, 2014. Entries of subject merchandise 
prior to the effective date of revocation will continue to be subject 
to suspension of liquidation and countervailing duty deposit 
requirements. The Department will complete any pending administrative 
review of this order and conduct administrative review of subject 
merchandise entered prior to the effective date of revocation in 
response to appropriately filed requests for review.
    The Department is issuing and publishing the final results and this 
notice in accordance with sections 751(c) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: September 17, 2014.
