Although this HTSUS subheading and CAS registry number are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the orders is dispositive. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Antidumping Duty Order In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, the ITC has notified the Department of its final determination that an industry in the United States is materially injured within the meaning of section 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act by reason of imports of ammonium sulfate that are sold in the United States at LTFV. Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(2) of the Act, we are publishing this antidumping duty order. Because the ITC determined that imports of ammonium sulfate from the PRC are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from the PRC, entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties. In accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the merchandise, for all relevant entries of ammonium sulfate from the PRC. Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of ammonium sulfate from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after November 9, 2016, the date of publication of the AD Preliminary Determination.3 Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation (AD) In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on entries of subject merchandise from the PRC. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the amount indicated below. Accordingly, effective on the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determination, CBP will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the 3 See Ammonium Sulfate from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 81 FR 78776 (November 9, 2016).

The Department has made no adjustments to the antidumping cash deposit rate because the Department has made no findings in the countervailing duty investigation that any of the programs are export subsidies.4 Suspension of Liquidation (CVD) In accordance with section 706 of the Act, the Department will direct CBP to reinstitute suspension of liquidation, effective on the date of publication of the ITC’s notice of final determination in the Federal Register, and to assess, upon further instruction by the Department pursuant to section Estimated Weighted-Average 706(a)(1) of the Act, countervailing Antidumping Duty Margin duties for each entry of the subject merchandise in an amount based on the The weighted-average antidumping net countervailable subsidy rate for the duty margin is as follows: subject merchandise.

The All-Others rate applies to all producers and exporters of subject merchandise not specifically listed. Countervailing Duty Order In accordance with section 705(d) of the Act, the ITC notified the Department of its final determination that the industry in the United States producing ammonium sulfate is materially injured within the meaning of section 705(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act by reason of subsidized imports of ammonium sulfate from the PRC.5 Therefore, in accordance with section 706(a) of the Act, we are publishing this countervailing duty order. As a result of the ITC’s final determination, in accordance with section 706(a) of the Act, the Department will direct CBP to assess, upon further instruction by the Department, countervailing duties on unliquidated entries of ammonium sulfate entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after November 2, 2016, the date of publication of the CVD Preliminary Determination.6 However, section 703(d) of the Act states that the suspension of liquidation pursuant to a preliminary determination may not remain in effect for more than four months. Therefore, entries of ammonium sulfate made on or after March 2, 2017, and prior to the date of publication of the ITC’s final determination in the Federal Register, are not liable for the assessment of countervailing duties, due to the Department’s discontinuation, effective March 2, 2017, of the suspension of liquidation.
