Final Affirmative Determination of Circumvention In accordance with 781(d) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), we continue to find that all imports from the PRC of heat-treated extruded aluminum products that meet the chemical specifications for 5050-grade aluminum alloy, regardless of producer, exporter, or importer, constitute laterdeveloped merchandise that is circumventing, and should be included within, the scope of the Orders.5 Rescission of Minor Alterations AntiCircumvention Inquiry In light of the Department’s final affirmative determination of circumvention pursuant to section 781(d) of the Act, the Department rescinds its minor alterations anticircumvention inquiry pursuant to section 781(c) of the Act. Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(l)(2), the Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to suspend liquidation of inquiry merchandise from the PRC (regardless of producer, exporter, or importer), entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, on or after March 21, 2016, the date of publication of the initiation of this inquiry, until appropriate liquidation instructions are issued.6 The Department will also instruct CBP to continue to require a cash deposit of estimated duties at the rate applicable to the exporter on all unliquidated entries of inquiry merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after March 21, 2016. Certification Requirement In light of the Department’s preliminary finding of circumvention, the Department considered whether to require importers of certain aluminum extrusions who claim the imported merchandise is not subject to the Orders to certify that the aluminum extrusions were not produced from heat-treated 5050-grade aluminum alloy.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background Sections 101(a)(5)(A) and (D) of the MMPA (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.) direct the Secretary of Commerce to allow, PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 upon request, the incidental, but not intentional, taking of small numbers of marine mammals by U.S. citizens who engage in a specified activity (other than commercial fishing) within a specified geographical region if certain findings are made and either regulations are issued or, if the taking is limited to harassment, a notice of a proposed authorization is provided to the public for review. An authorization for incidental takings shall be granted if NMFS finds that the taking will have a negligible impact on the species or stock(s), will not have an unmitigable adverse impact on the availability of the species or stock(s) for subsistence uses (where relevant), and if the permissible methods of taking and requirements pertaining to the mitigation, monitoring and reporting of such takings are set forth. NMFS has defined ‘‘negligible impact’’ in 50 CFR 216.103 as an impact resulting from the specified activity that cannot be reasonably expected to, and is not reasonably likely to, adversely affect the species or stock through effects on annual rates of recruitment or survival. NMFS has defined ‘‘unmitigable adverse impact’’ in 50 CFR 216.103 as an impact resulting from the specified activity: (1) That is likely to reduce the availability of the species to a level insufficient for a harvest to meet subsistence needs by: (i) Causing the marine mammals to abandon or avoid hunting areas; (ii) directly displacing subsistence users; or (iii) placing physical barriers between the marine mammals and the subsistence hunters; and (2) That cannot be sufficiently mitigated by other measures to increase the availability of marine mammals to allow subsistence needs to be met. The MMPA states that the term ‘‘take’’ means to harass, hunt, capture, kill or attempt to harass, hunt, capture, or kill any marine mammal. Except with respect to certain activities not pertinent here, the MMPA defines ‘‘harassment’’ as: Any act of pursuit, torment, or annoyance which (i) has the potential to injure a marine mammal or marine mammal stock in the wild (Level A harassment); or (ii) has the potential to disturb a marine mammal or marine mammal stock in the wild by causing disruption of behavioral patterns, including, but not limited to, migration, breathing, nursing, breeding, feeding, or sheltering (Level B harassment).

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs that were 
submitted by parties in this inquiry are addressed in the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum. A list of these issues is attached in the Appendix 
to this notice.

Final Affirmative Determination of Circumvention

    In accordance with 781(d) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act), we continue to find that all imports from the PRC of heat-
treated extruded aluminum products that meet the chemical 
specifications for 5050-grade aluminum alloy, regardless of producer, 
exporter, or importer, constitute later-developed merchandise that is 
circumventing, and should be included within, the scope of the 
Orders.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See section 781(d) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.225(j).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rescission of Minor Alterations Anti-Circumvention Inquiry

    In light of the Department's final affirmative determination of 
circumvention pursuant to section 781(d) of the Act, the Department 
rescinds its minor alterations anti-circumvention inquiry pursuant to 
section 781(c) of the Act.

Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(l)(2), the Department will direct 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to suspend 
liquidation of inquiry merchandise from the PRC (regardless of 
producer, exporter, or importer), entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption, on or after March 21, 2016, the date of publication of 
the initiation of this inquiry, until appropriate liquidation 
instructions are issued.\6\ The Department will also instruct CBP to 
continue to require a cash deposit of estimated duties at the rate 
applicable to the exporter on all unliquidated entries of inquiry 
merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after March 21, 2016.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Initiation Notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Certification Requirement

    In light of the Department's preliminary finding of circumvention, 
the Department considered whether to require importers of certain 
aluminum extrusions who claim the imported merchandise is not subject 
to the Orders to certify that the aluminum extrusions were not produced 
from heat-treated 5050-grade aluminum alloy. Based on the Department's 
analysis of comments received, the Department will not

[[Page 34632]]

require importers to maintain a certification at this time.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum, at Comment 4, for 
further detail.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notification to the International Trade Commission

    As discussed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, because the 
Department has determined, for purposes of sections 781(d)(1) and (e) 
of the Act, that the later-developed inquiry merchandise does not 
incorporate a significant technological advance or significant 
alteration of an earlier product, the Department did not notify the 
International Trade Commission of its proposed inclusion of the inquiry 
merchandise within the Orders.
    This affirmative anti-circumvention determination is published in 
accordance with section 781(d) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.225.

    Dated: July 20, 2017.
Gary Taverman,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
