Subsequent lists will follow after the close of each calendar quarter. Scope Rulings Made Between July 1, 2014 and September 30, 2014: Japan. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES A–588–850: Large Diameter Carbon and Alloy Seamless Standard, Line, and Pressure Pipe from Japan Requestor: U.S. Metals, Inc. (USM); USM’s American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) A–335 ferritic alloy steel pipe (specifically, Grades P5, P9, and P11) which USM imports is not within the scope of the antidumping duty order because USM demonstrated that its pipe meets the exclusion under 1 See 19 CFR 351.225(o). Notice of Scope Rulings, 79 FR 47093 (August 12, 2014). 2 See VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:07 Dec 10, 2014 Jkt 235001 People’s Republic of China Requestor: Titan Worldwide Industries Acquisition LLC (‘‘Titan’’); Titan’s three types of scaffolding planks (Aluminum Stages, Aluminum Planks with Plywood Top, and Aluminum Scaffold Boards) are outside the scope of the orders because the scaffolding plank products in question are comprised of aluminum extrusions and non-extruded and/or non-aluminum components and enter as fully-assembled finished goods that are permanently assembled, completed, and are ready to use in a scaffolding system with no further modification subsequent to importation. As such, these products are fully assembled subassemblies ready for immediate installation and use in a larger system; July 8, 2014. A–570–967 and C–570–968: Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China Requestor: Signature Partners Inc. (‘‘Signature’’); Signature’s auto trim kit, consisting of aluminum extrusions and non-aluminum extrusion components, is within the scope of the orders because the product does not enter the United States with all components necessary to complete the final automotive trim kit that is delivered to Signature’s customer; July 17, 2014. A–570–967 and C–570–968: Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China Requestor: Dynasty Profiles, LLC (‘‘Dynasty’’); Dynasty’s aluminum fence systems (specifically, Dynasty’s Pool Enclosure Fence System, Fence System for Single Family Home, Fence System for Perimeter Wall, Front Yard Fence System, Corner Fence System, and Entry Gate System) are within the scope of the orders because the information provided by Dynasty was not substantial enough to overcome the weight of the evidence regarding the clear business pattern of the fence industry that the Department has seen in prior scope rulings. The Department found that the logistical and economic considerations of shipping aluminum extrusion fence components to the United States causes similar parts to be combined in bulk, and then be reprocessed or repackaged in the United States, and that Dynasty has not established that its aluminum fence systems differ from this industry pattern; July 22, 2014. PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 A–570–967 and C–570–968: Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China Requestor: Five Lakes Trading, Inc. (‘‘Five Lakes’’); Five Lakes’ pocket door track, which is extruded from alloy series 6063 aluminum and is cut-tolength and punched, is within the scope of the orders because it meets the description of merchandise subject to the orders; July 22, 2014. A–570–967 and C–570–968: Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China Requestor: SPX Cooling Technologies, Inc. (‘‘SPX’’); SPX’s fan blade assemblies, which are composed of extruded aluminum fan blades, polypropylene end caps, a carbon steel shank, carbon steel counter weights, and steel blade hardware, are not within the scope of the orders because they are fully and permanently assembled at the time of entry and require no further finishing or fabrication prior to their use. Thus, the Department determined that the fan blade assemblies meet the exclusion criteria for subassemblies that are finished goods; July 25, 2014. A–570–967 and C–570–968: Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China Requestor: Larson Manufacturing Company (‘‘Larson’’); Larson’s storm door accessory kits, which are comprised of a door handle assembly kit and a door expander/sweeper, are outside the scope of the orders. The Department first found that the first part of the storm door accessory kit, the door handle assembly kit, is not comprised of aluminum extrusions and, therefore, would not fall within the scope of the order. With respect to the door expander/sweeper, the Department found that this part contains more than just extruded aluminum components beyond fasteners and contains parts that are fully and permanently assembled and completed at the time of entry and ready to be installed on a storm door and, thus, meet the exclusion criteria for subassemblies that enter the United States as ‘‘finished goods.’’ Therefore, the Department determined that the storm door accessory kit as whole is 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. Thus, the storm door accessory kit meets the exclusion for a finished goods kit; August 1, 2014. E:\FR\FM\11DEN1.SGM 11DEN1
