Appendix I rmajette on DSK7SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES The merchandise covered by this investigation includes uncoated paper in sheet form; weighing at least 40 grams per square meter but not more than 150 grams per square meter; that either is a white paper with a GE brightness level 13 of 85 or higher or is a colored paper; whether or not surfacedecorated, printed (except as described below), embossed, perforated, or punched; irrespective of the smoothness of the surface; and irrespective of dimensions (Certain Uncoated Paper). Certain Uncoated Paper includes (a) uncoated free sheet paper that meets this Extension of the Final Determination’’ (July 31, 2015). 12 See also 19 CFR 351.210(e). 13 One of the key measurements of any grade of paper is brightness. Generally speaking, the brighter the paper the better the contrast between the paper and the ink. Brightness is measured using a GE Reflectance Scale, which measures the reflection of light off a grade of paper. One is the lowest reflection, or what would be given to a totally black grade, and 100 is the brightest measured grade. ‘‘Colored paper’’ as used in this scope definition means a paper with a hue other than white that reflects one of the primary colors of magenta, yellow, and cyan (red, yellow, and blue) or a combination of such primary colors.

This period corresponds to the two most recent fiscal quarters prior to the month of the filing of the petition, which was August 2014.4 Scope of the Investigation The scope of this investigation covers boltless steel shelving units prepackaged for sale, with or without decks (‘‘boltless steel shelving’’). The term ‘‘prepackaged for sale’’ means that, at a minimum, the steel vertical supports (i.e., uprights and posts) and steel horizontal supports (i.e., beams, braces) necessary to assemble a completed shelving unit (with or without decks) are packaged together for ultimate purchase by the end-user. Subject boltless steel shelving enters the United States through Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) statistical subheadings 9403.20.0018, 9403.20.0020, 9403.20.0025, and 9403.20.0026, but may also enter through HTSUS 9403.10.0040.

Verification rmajette on DSK7SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES As provided in section 782(i) of the Act, between May 4 and May 15, 2014, the Department conducted verification of the information submitted by Nanjing Topsun Racking Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (‘‘Topsun’’) and Zhongda United Holding Group Co., Ltd. (‘‘Zhongda United’’) 5 for use in the final Memorandum for the Final Determination of the Antidumping Duty Investigation of Boltless Steel Shelving Units Prepackaged for Sale from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated concurrently with this notice (‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum’’). 4 See 19 CFR 351.204(b)(1). 5 Zhongda United, Zhongda IE and Jiaxing Zhongda Metalwork Co., Ltd. (collectively, ‘‘Zhongda’’) submitted questionnaire responses on behalf of both companies based on the contention that the entities are affiliated. See Memorandum to the File from through Catherine Bertrand, Program Manager, Office V, from Kabir Archuletta, Senior International Trade Analyst, Office V ‘‘Antidumping Duty Investigation of Boltless Steel Shelving Units Prepackaged for Sale from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Determination of Affiliation/Single Entity Treatment for Zhongda United Holding Group Co., Ltd., Jiaxing Zhongda Import & Export Co., Ltd., and VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:29 Aug 25, 2015 Jkt 235001 determination.

PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Changes Since the Amended Preliminary Determination Based on the Department’s analysis of the comments received and our findings at verification, we made certain changes to Zhongda United’s and Topsun’s margin calculations. For a discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Furthermore, we find that Topsun failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of its ability in this proceeding and, pursuant to section 776(b) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.308(a), we have based Topsun’s dumping margin on total adverse facts available (‘‘AFA’’). For further discussion, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Combination Rates In the Initiation Notice,9 the Department stated that it would calculate combination rates for the respondents that are eligible for a separate rate in this investigation. Policy Bulletin 05.1 describes this practice.10 Separate Rate Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate is normally an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated weighted average dumping margins established for exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero and de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely on the basis of facts available. Accordingly, when only one weighted-average dumping margin for an individually investigated respondent is above de minimis and not based entirely on facts available, the separate rate will be equal to that single, above de minimis rate. In this final determination, the Department has calculated a rate for Zhongda that is not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available. With respect to the other mandatory respondent, we have determined to apply a rate that is based entirely on facts available, thus it is excluded from separate rate consideration. Therefore, the Department has assigned to the companies that have not been individually examined but have demonstrated their eligibility for a 9 See Boltless Steel Shelving Units Prepackaged for Sale from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigation, 79 FR 56562, 56566 (September 22, 2014) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). 10 See Enforcement and Compliance’s Policy Bulletin No. 05.1, regarding, ‘‘Separate-Rates Practice and Application of Combination Rates in Antidumping Investigations involving Non-Market Economy Countries,’’ (April 5, 2005) (‘‘Policy Bulletin 05.1’’), available on the Department’s Web site at http://enforcement.trade.gov/policy/bull051.pdf.

PRC-Wide Rate For the final determination, we have determined to use, as the AFA rate applied to the PRC-wide entity, 112.68 percent, the highest CONNUM-specific dumping margin calculated in the Preliminary Determination. Consistent with our practice, the Department selected Topsun’s highest CONNUMspecific margin, as AFA, because this rate is higher than the other rates in this investigation and therefore, sufficiently adverse to serve the purposes of facts available.11 Furthermore, there is no need to corroborate the selected margin because it is based on information submitted by Topsun in the course of this investigation, i.e., it is not secondary information.12 Final Determination The Department determines that the estimated final weighted-average dumping margins are as follows: Weightedaverage margin (percent) Exporter Producer Zhongda United Holding Group Co., Ltd ....................................

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation rmajette on DSK7SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to continue to suspend liquidation of all appropriate entries of boltless steel shelving units prepackaged for sale from the PRC as described in the ‘‘Scope of the Investigation’’ section, which were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after April 1, 2015, the date of publication in the Federal Register of the affirmative Preliminary Determination. Further, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.205(d), the Department will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit 13 equal to the weightedaverage amount by which the normal value exceeds U.S. price, adjusted where appropriate for export subsidies and estimated domestic subsidy passthrough, as follows: (1) For the exporter/ 11 See Issues and Decision Memorandum for a detailed discussion. 12 See 19 CFR 351.308(c) and (d) and section 776(c) of the Act. 13 See Modification of Regulations Regarding the Practice of Accepting Bonds During the Provisional Measures Period in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Investigations, 76 FR 61042 (October 3, 2011). 14 See Preliminary Determination, 80 FR at 17411.

As we stated in the Preliminary Determination, consistent with our practice, where the product under investigation is also subject to a concurrent countervailing duty investigation, we instruct CBP to require a cash deposit equal to the amount by which the normal value exceeds the export price or constructed export price, less the amount of the countervailing duty determined to constitute an export subsidy.14 In this LTFV investigation, export subsidies constitute 16.06 percent 15 of the final calculated countervailing duty rate in the concurrent countervailing duty investigation, and, thus, we will offset the calculated rates for Zhongda, the companies receiving a separate rate, and the PRC-wide rate of 112.68 percent by the countervailing duty rate attributable to export subsidies (i.e., 16.06 percent) to calculate the cash deposit rate for this LTFV investigation. Furthermore, as previously stated, the Department did not adjust the preliminary determination AD margins for estimated domestic subsidy pass-through because respondents provided no information to support an adjustment pursuant to section 777A(f) of the Act.16 15 The following subsidy programs in the final determination of the concurrent countervailing duty investigation are export subsidies: Export Seller’s Credits and Export Buyer’s Credits from the ExportImport Bank of China (14.79 percent), GOC and Sub-Central Government Subsidies for the Development of Famous Brands and World Top Brands (0.58 percent), International Market Exploration (SME) Fund (0.58 percent), Export Assistance/Outward Expansion Grants in Guangdong Province (0.08 percent), Export Credit Insurance (0.01 percent), Export Subsidy for High- Tech Merchandise (0.02 percent).

Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance. Appendix I—Scope of the Investigation The scope of this investigation covers boltless steel shelving units prepackaged for sale, with or without decks (‘‘boltless steel shelving’’). The term ‘‘prepackaged for sale’’ means that, at a minimum, the steel vertical supports (i.e., uprights and posts) and steel horizontal supports (i.e., beams, braces) necessary to assemble a completed shelving unit (with or without decks) are packaged together for ultimate purchase by the enduser. The scope also includes add-on kits. Add-on kits include, but are not limited to, kits that allow the end-user to add an extension shelving unit onto an existing boltless steel shelving unit such that the extension and the original unit will share common frame elements (e.g., two posts). The term ‘‘boltless’’ refers to steel shelving in which the vertical and horizontal supports forming the frame are assembled primarily without the use of nuts and bolts or screws. The vertical and horizontal support members for boltless steel shelving are assembled by methods such as, but not limited to, fitting a rivet, punched or cut tab or other similar connector on one support into a hole, slot or VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:29 Aug 25, 2015 Jkt 235001 similar receptacle on another support. The supports lock together to form the frame for the shelving unit, and provide the structural integrity of the shelving unit separate from the inclusion of any decking. The incidental use of nuts and bolts or screws to add accessories, wall anchors, tie-bars or shelf supports does not remove the product from scope. Boltless steel shelving units may also come packaged as partially assembled, such as when two upright supports are welded together with front-to-back supports, or are otherwise connected, to form an end unit for the frame. The boltless steel shelving covered by this investigation may be commonly described as rivet shelving, welded frame shelving, slot and tab shelving, and punched rivet (quasi-rivet) shelving as well as by other trade names. The term ‘‘deck’’ refers to the shelf that sits on or fits into the horizontal supports (beams or braces) to provide the horizontal storage surface of the shelving unit. The scope includes all boltless steel shelving meeting the description above, regardless of (1) vertical support or post type (including but not limited to open post, closed post and tubing); (2) horizontal support or beam/brace profile (including but not limited to Z-beam, C-beam, L-beam, step beam and cargo rack); (3) number of supports; (4) surface coating (including but not limited to paint, epoxy, powder coating, zinc and other metallic coating); (5) number of levels; (6) weight capacity; (7) shape (including but not limited to rectangular, square, and corner units); (8) decking material (including but not limited to wire decking, particle board, laminated board or no deck at all); or (9) the boltless method by which vertical and horizontal supports connect (including but not limited to keyhole and rivet, slot and tab, welded frame, punched rivet and clip). Specifically excluded from the scope are: • Wall-mounted shelving, defined as shelving that is hung on the wall and does not stand on, or transfer load to, the floor; 17 • wire shelving units, which consist of shelves made from wire that incorporates both a wire deck and wire horizontal supports (taking the place of the horizontal beams and braces) into a single piece with tubular collars that slide over the posts and onto plastic sleeves snapped on the posts to create the finished shelving unit; • bulk-packed parts or components of boltless steel shelving units; and • made-to-order shelving systems. Subject boltless steel shelving enters the United States through Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) statistical subheadings 9403.20.0018, 9403.20.0020, 9403.20.0025, and 9403.20.0026, but may also enter through HTSUS 9403.10.0040. While HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and Customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this investigation is dispositive. 17 The addition of a wall bracket or other device to attach otherwise freestanding subject merchandise to a wall does not meet the terms of this exclusion.

Period of Investigation

    The period of investigation (``POI'') is January 1, 2014, through 
June 30, 2014. This period corresponds to the two most recent fiscal 
quarters prior to the month of the filing of the petition, which was 
August 2014.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See 19 CFR 351.204(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Investigation

    The scope of this investigation covers boltless steel shelving 
units prepackaged for sale, with or without decks (``boltless steel 
shelving''). The term ``prepackaged for sale'' means that, at a 
minimum, the steel vertical supports (i.e., uprights and posts) and 
steel horizontal supports (i.e., beams, braces) necessary to assemble a 
completed shelving unit (with or without decks) are packaged together 
for ultimate purchase by the end-user.
    Subject boltless steel shelving enters the United States through 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') statistical 
subheadings 9403.20.0018, 9403.20.0020, 9403.20.0025, and 9403.20.0026, 
but may also enter through HTSUS 9403.10.0040. While HTSUS subheadings 
are provided for convenience and Customs purposes, the written 
description of the scope of this investigation is dispositive. Several 
interested parties commented on the scope of this investigation, which 
we have summarized in the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. 
For a complete description of the scope of the investigation, see 
Appendix I to this notice.

Verification

    As provided in section 782(i) of the Act, between May 4 and May 15, 
2014, the Department conducted verification of the information 
submitted by Nanjing Topsun Racking Manufacturing Co., Ltd. 
(``Topsun'') and Zhongda United Holding Group Co., Ltd. (``Zhongda 
United'') \5\ for use in the final determination. We issued our 
verification reports on June 4, 2014, and June 5, 2015.\6\ The 
Department used standard verification procedures, including examination 
of relevant accounting and production records and original source 
documents provided by respondents.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ Zhongda United, Zhongda IE and Jiaxing Zhongda Metalwork 
Co., Ltd. (collectively, ``Zhongda'') submitted questionnaire 
responses on behalf of both companies based on the contention that 
the entities are affiliated. See Memorandum to the File from through

Analysis of Comments Received

    We addressed all issues raised by parties in case and rebuttal 
briefs in the Issues and Decision Memorandum.\8\ Appendix II to this 
notice includes a list of the issues which the parties raised and to 
which the Department responded in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. 
The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file 
electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (``ACCESS''). 
ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov. The

Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce 
building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum is available at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. 
The signed and electronic versions of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Changes Since the Amended Preliminary Determination

    Based on the Department's analysis of the comments received and our 
findings at verification, we made certain changes to Zhongda United's 
and Topsun's margin calculations. For a discussion of these changes, 
see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.
    Furthermore, we find that Topsun failed to cooperate by not acting 
to the best of its ability in this proceeding and, pursuant to section 
776(b) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.308(a), we have based Topsun's dumping 
margin on total adverse facts available (``AFA''). For further 
discussion, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Combination Rates

    In the Initiation Notice,\9\ the Department stated that it would 
calculate combination rates for the respondents that are eligible for a 
separate rate in this investigation. Policy Bulletin 05.1 describes 
this practice.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Boltless Steel Shelving Units Prepackaged for Sale from 
the People's Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty 
Investigation, 79 FR 56562, 56566 (September 22, 2014) (``Initiation 
Notice'').
    \10\ See Enforcement and Compliance's Policy Bulletin No. 05.1, 
regarding, ``Separate-Rates Practice and Application of Combination 
Rates in Antidumping Investigations involving Non-Market Economy 
Countries,'' (April 5, 2005) (``Policy Bulletin 05.1''), available 
on the Department's Web site at http://enforcement.trade.gov/policy/bull05-1.pdf.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rate

    Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate is 
normally an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated 
weighted average dumping margins established for exporters and 
producers individually investigated, excluding any zero and de minimis 
margins, and any margins determined entirely on the basis of facts 
available. Accordingly, when only one weighted-average dumping margin 
for an individually investigated respondent is above de minimis and not 
based entirely on facts available, the separate rate will be equal to 
that single, above de minimis rate.
    In this final determination, the Department has calculated a rate 
for Zhongda that is not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts 
available. With respect to the other mandatory respondent, we have 
determined to apply a rate that is based entirely on facts available, 
thus it is excluded from separate rate consideration. Therefore, the 
Department has assigned to the companies that have not been 
individually examined but have demonstrated their eligibility for a

[[Page 51781]]

separate rate a margin of 17.55 percent, which is the rate calculated 
for Zhongda.

PRC-Wide Rate

    For the final determination, we have determined to use, as the AFA 
rate applied to the PRC-wide entity, 112.68 percent, the highest 
CONNUM-specific dumping margin calculated in the Preliminary 
Determination. Consistent with our practice, the Department selected 
Topsun's highest CONNUM-specific margin, as AFA, because this rate is 
higher than the other rates in this investigation and therefore, 
sufficiently adverse to serve the purposes of facts available.\11\ 
Furthermore, there is no need to corroborate the selected margin 
because it is based on information submitted by Topsun in the course of 
this investigation, i.e., it is not secondary information.\12\

discussion.

Final Determination

    The Department determines that the estimated final weighted-average 
dumping margins are as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                             Weighted-

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose to parties the calculations performed in this 
proceeding within five days of the date of publication of this notice 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, the Department 
will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to continue 
to suspend liquidation of all appropriate entries of boltless steel 
shelving units prepackaged for sale from the PRC as described in the 
``Scope of the Investigation'' section, which were entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after April 1, 2015, 
the date of publication in the Federal Register of the affirmative 
Preliminary Determination. Further, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.205(d), the 
Department will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit \13\ equal to 
the weighted-average amount by which the normal value exceeds U.S. 
price, adjusted where appropriate for export subsidies and estimated 
domestic subsidy pass-through, as follows: (1) For the exporter/
producer combination listed in the table above, the cash deposit rate 
will be equal to the dumping margin which the Department determined in 
this final determination; (2) for all combinations of PRC exporters/
producers of merchandise under consideration which have not received 
their own separate rate above, the cash deposit rate will be equal to 
the dumping margin established for the PRC-wide entity; and (3) for all 
non-PRC exporters of merchandise under consideration which have not 
received their own separate rate above, the cash deposit rate will be 
equal to the cash deposit rate applicable to the PRC exporter/producer 
combination that supplied that non-PRC exporter.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See Modification of Regulations Regarding the Practice of 
Accepting Bonds During the Provisional Measures Period in 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Investigations, 76 FR 61042 
(October 3, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As we stated in the Preliminary Determination, consistent with our 
practice, where the product under investigation is also subject to a 
concurrent countervailing duty investigation, we instruct CBP to 
require a cash deposit equal to the amount by which the normal value 
exceeds the export price or constructed export price, less the amount 
of the countervailing duty determined to constitute an export 
subsidy.\14\ In this LTFV investigation, export subsidies constitute 
16.06 percent \15\ of the final calculated countervailing duty rate in 
the concurrent countervailing duty investigation, and, thus, we will 
offset the calculated rates for Zhongda, the companies receiving a 
separate rate, and the PRC-wide rate of 112.68 percent by the 
countervailing duty rate attributable to export subsidies (i.e., 16.06 
percent) to calculate the cash deposit rate for this LTFV 
investigation. Furthermore, as previously stated, the Department did 
not adjust the preliminary determination AD margins for estimated 
domestic subsidy pass-through because respondents provided no 
information to support an adjustment pursuant to section 777A(f) of the 
Act.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See Preliminary Determination, 80 FR at 17411.
    \15\ The following subsidy programs in the final determination 
of the concurrent countervailing duty investigation are export 
subsidies: Export Seller's Credits and Export Buyer's Credits from 
the Export-Import Bank of China (14.79 percent), GOC and Sub-Central 
Government Subsidies for the Development of Famous Brands and World 
Top Brands (0.58 percent), International Market Exploration (SME) 
Fund (0.58 percent), Export Assistance/Outward Expansion Grants in 
Guangdong Province (0.08 percent), Export Credit Insurance (0.01 
percent), Export Subsidy for High-Tech Merchandise (0.02 percent).

Units Prepackaged for Sale From the People's Republic of China:

determination in this companion CVD proceeding is being concurrently 
released on the same day as this final determination.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

International Trade Commission Notification

    In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we notified the 
International Trade Commission (``ITC'') of the final affirmative 
determination of sales at LTFV. As the Department's final determination 
is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the Act, the 
ITC will determine, within 45 days, whether the domestic industry in

[[Page 51782]]

the United States is materially injured, or threatened with material 
injury, by reason of imports of boltless steel shelving units 
prepackaged for sale from the PRC, or sales (or the likelihood of 
sales) for importation, of boltless steel shelving units prepackaged 
for sale from the PRC. If the ITC determines that such injury does not 
exist, this proceeding will be terminated and all securities posted 
will be refunded or canceled. If the ITC determines that such injury 
does exist, the Department will issue an antidumping duty order 
directing CBP to assess, upon further instruction by the Department, 
antidumping duties on all imports of the subject merchandise entered, 
or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the effective 
date of the suspension of liquidation.

Return or Destruction of Proprietary Information

    This notice also serves as a reminder to the parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of propriety information disclosed under APO 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely written notification of 
return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial 
protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the 
regulations and terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    This determination is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

Appendix I--Scope of the Investigation

    The scope of this investigation covers boltless steel shelving 
units prepackaged for sale, with or without decks (``boltless steel 
shelving''). The term ``prepackaged for sale'' means that, at a 
minimum, the steel vertical supports (i.e., uprights and posts) and 
steel horizontal supports (i.e., beams, braces) necessary to 
assemble a completed shelving unit (with or without decks) are 
packaged together for ultimate purchase by the end-user. The scope 
also includes add-on kits. Add-on kits include, but are not limited 
to, kits that allow the end-user to add an extension shelving unit 
onto an existing boltless steel shelving unit such that the 
extension and the original unit will share common frame elements 
(e.g., two posts). The term ``boltless'' refers to steel shelving in 
which the vertical and horizontal supports forming the frame are 
assembled primarily without the use of nuts and bolts or screws. The 
vertical and horizontal support members for boltless steel shelving 
are assembled by methods such as, but not limited to, fitting a 
rivet, punched or cut tab or other similar connector on one support 
into a hole, slot or similar receptacle on another support. The 
supports lock together to form the frame for the shelving unit, and 
provide the structural integrity of the shelving unit separate from 
the inclusion of any decking. The incidental use of nuts and bolts 
or screws to add accessories, wall anchors, tie-bars or shelf 
supports does not remove the product from scope. Boltless steel 
shelving units may also come packaged as partially assembled, such 
as when two upright supports are welded together with front-to-back 
supports, or are otherwise connected, to form an end unit for the 
frame. The boltless steel shelving covered by this investigation may 
be commonly described as rivet shelving, welded frame shelving, slot 
and tab shelving, and punched rivet (quasi-rivet) shelving as well 
as by other trade names. The term ``deck'' refers to the shelf that 
sits on or fits into the horizontal supports (beams or braces) to 
provide the horizontal storage surface of the shelving unit.
    The scope includes all boltless steel shelving meeting the 
description above, regardless of (1) vertical support or post type 
(including but not limited to open post, closed post and tubing); 
(2) horizontal support or beam/brace profile (including but not 
limited to Z-beam, C-beam, L-beam, step beam and cargo rack); (3) 
number of supports; (4) surface coating (including but not limited 
to paint, epoxy, powder coating, zinc and other metallic coating); 
(5) number of levels; (6) weight capacity; (7) shape (including but 
not limited to rectangular, square, and corner units); (8) decking 
material (including but not limited to wire decking, particle board, 
laminated board or no deck at all); or (9) the boltless method by 
which vertical and horizontal supports connect (including but not 
limited to keyhole and rivet, slot and tab, welded frame, punched 
rivet and clip).
    Specifically excluded from the scope are:
     Wall-mounted shelving, defined as shelving that is hung 
on the wall and does not stand on, or transfer load to, the floor; 
\17\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ The addition of a wall bracket or other device to attach 
otherwise freestanding subject merchandise to a wall does not meet 
the terms of this exclusion.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

     wire shelving units, which consist of shelves made from 
wire that incorporates both a wire deck and wire horizontal supports 
(taking the place of the horizontal beams and braces) into a single 
piece with tubular collars that slide over the posts and onto 
plastic sleeves snapped on the posts to create the finished shelving 
unit;
     bulk-packed parts or components of boltless steel 
shelving units; and
     made-to-order shelving systems.
    Subject boltless steel shelving enters the United States through 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') 
statistical subheadings 9403.20.0018, 9403.20.0020, 9403.20.0025, 
and 9403.20.0026, but may also enter through HTSUS 9403.10.0040. 
While HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and Customs 
purposes, the written description of the scope of this investigation 
is dispositive.
