SUMMARY: Based on affirmative final determinations by the Department of Commerce (Commerce) and the International Trade Commission (ITC), Commerce is issuing antidumping duty orders on certain tool chests and cabinets (tool chests) from the People’s Republic of China (China) and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnam). AGENCY: DATES: Applicable June 4, 2018. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Yang Jin Chun or Andre Gziryan at (202) 482–5760 or (202) 482–2201, respectively (China); Dmitry Vladimirov at (202) 482–0665 (Vietnam); AD/CVD Operations Office I, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background In accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.210(c), on April 10, 2018, Commerce published its affirmative final determinations in the less-thanfair-value (LTFV) investigations of tool chests from China and Vietnam.1 On May 24, 2018, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determination pursuant to section 735(b)(1)(A) of the Act that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of the LTFV imports of tool chests from China and Vietnam.2 Scope of the Orders sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES The product covered by these orders is tool chests. For a complete description for the scope of the orders, see Appendix I of this notice. 1 See Certain Tool Chests and Cabinets from the People’s Republic of China: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 83 FR 15365 (April 10, 2018) (China Final) and Certain Tool Chests and Cabinets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 83 FR 15361 (April 10, 2018) (Vietnam Final). 2 See Notification Letter from the ITC dated May 24, 2018 (ITC Letter). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:35 Jun 01, 2018 Jkt 244001 Antidumping Duty Orders On May 24, 2018, in accordance with sections 735(b)(1)(A) and 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determinations in these investigations, in which it found that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of imports of tool chests from China and Vietnam.3 Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(2) of the Act, Commerce is issuing these antidumping duty orders. Because the ITC determined that imports of tool chests from China and Vietnam are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from China and Vietnam, entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties. Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, Commerce will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, 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 tool chests from China and Vietnam. Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of tool chests from China and Vietnam entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after November 16, 2017, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determinations,4 but will not include entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures period and before publication of the ITC’s final injury determination as further described below. Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on entries of tool chests from China and Vietnam. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the amount as indicated below. Accordingly, effective 3 See ITC Letter.

For the purpose of determining cash deposit rates for China, the estimated weightedaverage dumping margins for imports of subject merchandise from China have been adjusted, as appropriate, for estimated domestic subsidy passthrough rates calculated based on the final determination of the companion countervailing duty investigation of tool chests from China.6 Provisional Measures Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions issued pursuant to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect for more than four months, except where exporters representing a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request Commerce to extend that fourmonth period to no more than six months. At the request of exporters that account for a significant proportion of tool chests from China and Vietnam, respectively, Commerce extended the four-month period to six months in each case.7 In the underlying investigations, Commerce published the preliminary determinations on November 16, 2017. Therefore, the extended period, beginning on the date of publication of the Preliminary Determinations, ended on May 14, 2018. Furthermore, section 737(b) of the Act states that definitive duties are to begin on the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination. Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act and our practice,8 we will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, unliquidated entries of tool chests from China and Vietnam entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption after May 14, 2018, the date the provisional measures expired, through the day preceding the date of publication of the 5 See sections 736(a)(3) of the Act.

Appendix I sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Scope of the Orders The scope of these orders covers certain metal tool chests and tool cabinets, with drawers, (tool chests and cabinets), from the People’s Republic of China (China) and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnam). The scope covers all metal tool chests and cabinets, including top chests, intermediate chests, tool cabinets and side cabinets, storage units, mobile work benches, and VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:35 Jun 01, 2018 Jkt 244001 work stations and that have the following physical characteristics: (1) A body made of carbon, alloy, or stainless steel and/or other metals; (2) two or more drawers for storage in each individual unit; (3) a width (side to side) exceeding 15 inches for side cabinets and exceeding 21 inches for all other individual units but not exceeding 60 inches; (4) a body depth (front to back) exceeding 10 inches but not exceeding 24 inches; and (5) prepackaged for retail sale. For purposes of this scope, the width parameter applies to each individual unit, i.e., each individual top chest, intermediate top chest, tool cabinet, side cabinet, storage unit, mobile work bench, and work station. Prepackaged for retail sale means the units may, for example, be packaged in a cardboard box, other type of container or packaging, and may bear a Universal Product Code, along with photographs, pictures, images, features, artwork, and/or product specifications. Subject tool chests and cabinets are covered whether imported in assembled or unassembled form. Subject merchandise includes tool chests and cabinets produced in China or Vietnam but assembled, prepackaged for retail sale, or subject to other minor processing in a third country prior to importation into the United States. Similarly, it would include tool chests and cabinets produced in China or Vietnam that are assembled, prepackaged for retail sale, or subject to other minor processing after importation into the United States. Subject tool chests and cabinets may also have doors and shelves in addition to drawers, may have handles (typically mounted on the sides), and may have a work surface on the top. Subject tool chests and cabinets may be uncoated (e.g., stainless steel), painted, powder coated, galvanized, or otherwise coated for corrosion protection or aesthetic appearance.

When packaged in sets, they typically include a cabinet with one or more chests that stack on top of the cabinet. Tool cabinets act as a base tool storage unit and typically have rollers, casters, or wheels to permit them to be moved more easily when loaded with tools. Work stations and mobile work benches are tool cabinets with a work surface on the top that may be made of rubber, plastic, metal, wood, or other materials. Top chests are designed to be used with a tool cabinet to form a tool storage unit. The top chests may be mounted on top of the base tool cabinet or onto an intermediate chest. They are often packaged as a set with tool cabinets or intermediate chests, but may also be packaged separately. They may be packaged with mounting hardware (e.g., bolts) and instructions for assembling them onto the base tool cabinet or onto an intermediate tool chest which rests on the base tool cabinet. Smaller top chests typically have handles on the sides, while the larger top chests typically lack handles. Intermediate tool chests are designed to fit on top of the floor standing tool cabinet and to be used underneath the top tool chest. Although they may be packaged or used separately from the tool cabinet, intermediate chests are designed to be used in conjunction with tool cabinets. The intermediate chests typically do not have handles. The intermediate and top chests may have the capability of being bolted together. Side cabinets are designed to be bolted or otherwise attached to the side of the base storage cabinet to expand the storage capacity of the base tool cabinet. Subject tool chests and cabinets also may be packaged with a tool set included. Packaging a subject tool chest and cabinet with a tool set does not remove an otherwise covered subject tool chest and cabinet from the scope. When this occurs, the tools are not part of the subject merchandise.

Certain Tool Chests and Cabinets From the People's Republic of 
China and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Antidumping Duty Orders

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: Based on affirmative final determinations by the Department of 
Commerce (Commerce) and the International Trade Commission (ITC), 
Commerce is issuing antidumping duty orders on certain tool chests and 
cabinets (tool chests) from the People's Republic of China (China) and 
the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnam).

DATES: Applicable June 4, 2018.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Yang Jin Chun or Andre Gziryan at 
(202) 482-5760 or (202) 482-2201, respectively (China); Dmitry 
Vladimirov at (202) 482-0665 (Vietnam); AD/CVD Operations Office I,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    In accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.210(c), on April 10, 
2018, Commerce published its affirmative final determinations in the 
less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigations of tool chests from China 
and Vietnam.\1\ On May 24, 2018, the ITC notified Commerce of its final 
determination pursuant to section 735(b)(1)(A) of the Act that an 
industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of the 
LTFV imports of tool chests from China and Vietnam.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Certain Tool Chests and Cabinets from the People's 
Republic of China: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less 
Than Fair Value, 83 FR 15365 (April 10, 2018) (China Final) and

Vietnam: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair 
Value, 83 FR 15361 (April 10, 2018) (Vietnam Final).
    \2\ See Notification Letter from the ITC dated May 24, 2018 (ITC 
Letter).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Orders

    The product covered by these orders is tool chests. For a complete 
description for the scope of the orders, see Appendix I of this notice.

Antidumping Duty Orders

    On May 24, 2018, in accordance with sections 735(b)(1)(A) and 
735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final 
determinations in these investigations, in which it found that an 
industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of 
imports of tool chests from China and Vietnam.\3\ Therefore, in 
accordance with section 735(c)(2) of the Act, Commerce is issuing these 
antidumping duty orders. Because the ITC determined that imports of 
tool chests from China and Vietnam are materially injuring a U.S. 
industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from China and 
Vietnam, entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are 
subject to the assessment of antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See ITC Letter.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, 
Commerce will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, 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 tool chests from China and Vietnam. Antidumping 
duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of tool chests from 
China and Vietnam entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption 
on or after November 16, 2017, the date of publication of the 
Preliminary Determinations,\4\ but will not include entries occurring 
after the expiration of the provisional measures period and before 
publication of the ITC's final injury determination as further 
described below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Republic of China: Preliminary Affirmative Determination of Sales at

Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Preliminary Affirmative Determination 
of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, Postponement of Final 
Determination and Extension of Provisional Measures, 82 FR 53452 
(November 16, 2017) (Vietnam Prelim) (collectively, Preliminary 
Determinations).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will 
instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on entries of tool 
chests from China and Vietnam. These instructions suspending 
liquidation will remain in effect until further notice.
    We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the 
amount as 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 cash deposit rates listed below.\5\ The respective rate for the 
China-wide entity and the Vietnam-wide entity applies to all exporters 
not specifically listed. For the purpose of determining cash deposit 
rates for China, the estimated weighted-average dumping margins for 
imports of subject merchandise from China have been adjusted, as 
appropriate, for estimated domestic subsidy pass-through rates 
calculated based on the final determination of the companion 
countervailing duty investigation of tool chests from China.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See sections 736(a)(3) of the Act.
    \6\ See China Final, 83 FR at 15367.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Provisional Measures

    Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions issued pursuant 
to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect 
for more than four months, except where exporters representing a 
significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request 
Commerce to extend that four-month period to no more than six months. 
At the request of exporters that account for a significant proportion 
of tool chests from China and Vietnam, respectively, Commerce extended 
the four-month period to six months in each case.\7\ In the underlying 
investigations, Commerce published the preliminary determinations on 
November 16, 2017. Therefore, the extended period, beginning on the 
date of publication of the Preliminary Determinations, ended on May 14, 
2018. Furthermore, section 737(b) of the Act states that definitive 
duties are to begin on the date of publication of the ITC's final 
injury determination.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See China Prelim, 82 FR at 53458-59 and Vietnam Prelim, 82 
FR at 53454.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act and our 
practice,\8\ we will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of 
liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, 
unliquidated entries of tool chests from China and Vietnam entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption after May 14, 2018, the date 
the provisional measures expired, through the day preceding the date of 
publication of the

ITC's final injury determination in the Federal Register. Suspension of 
liquidation will resume on the date of publication of the ITC's final 
determination in the Federal Register.

Appendix I

Scope of the Orders

    The scope of these orders covers certain metal tool chests and 
tool cabinets, with drawers, (tool chests and cabinets), from the 
People's Republic of China (China) and the Socialist Republic of 
Vietnam (Vietnam). The scope covers all metal tool chests and 
cabinets, including top chests, intermediate chests, tool cabinets 
and side cabinets, storage units, mobile work benches, and work 
stations and that have the following physical characteristics:
    (1) A body made of carbon, alloy, or stainless steel and/or 
other metals;
    (2) two or more drawers for storage in each individual unit;
    (3) a width (side to side) exceeding 15 inches for side cabinets 
and exceeding 21 inches for all other individual units but not 
exceeding 60 inches;
    (4) a body depth (front to back) exceeding 10 inches but not 
exceeding 24 inches; and
    (5) prepackaged for retail sale.
    For purposes of this scope, the width parameter applies to each 
individual unit, i.e., each individual top chest, intermediate top 
chest, tool cabinet, side cabinet, storage unit, mobile work bench, 
and work station.
    Prepackaged for retail sale means the units may, for example, be 
packaged in a cardboard box, other type of container or packaging, 
and may bear a Universal Product Code, along with photographs, 
pictures, images, features, artwork, and/or product specifications. 
Subject tool chests and cabinets are covered whether imported in 
assembled or unassembled form. Subject merchandise includes tool 
chests and cabinets produced in China or Vietnam but assembled, 
prepackaged for retail sale, or subject to other minor processing in 
a third country prior to importation into the United States. 
Similarly, it would include tool chests and cabinets produced in 
China or Vietnam that are assembled, prepackaged for retail sale, or 
subject to other minor processing after importation into the United 
States.
    Subject tool chests and cabinets may also have doors and shelves 
in addition to drawers, may have handles (typically mounted on the 
sides), and may have a work surface on the top. Subject tool chests 
and cabinets may be uncoated (e.g., stainless steel), painted, 
powder coated, galvanized, or otherwise coated for corrosion 
protection or aesthetic appearance.
    Subject tool chests and cabinets may be packaged as individual 
units or in sets. When packaged in sets, they typically include a 
cabinet with one or more chests that stack on top of the cabinet. 
Tool cabinets act as a base tool storage unit and typically have 
rollers, casters, or wheels to permit them to be moved more easily 
when loaded with tools. Work stations and mobile work benches are 
tool cabinets with a work surface on the top that may be made of 
rubber, plastic, metal, wood, or other materials.
    Top chests are designed to be used with a tool cabinet to form a 
tool storage unit. The top chests may be mounted on top of the base 
tool cabinet or onto an intermediate chest. They are often packaged 
as a set with tool cabinets or intermediate chests, but may also be 
packaged separately. They may be packaged with mounting hardware 
(e.g., bolts) and instructions for assembling them onto the base 
tool cabinet or onto an intermediate tool chest which rests on the 
base tool cabinet. Smaller top chests typically have handles on the 
sides, while the larger top chests typically lack handles. 
Intermediate tool chests are designed to fit on top of the floor 
standing tool cabinet and to be used underneath the top tool chest. 
Although they may be packaged or used separately from the tool 
cabinet, intermediate chests are designed to be used in conjunction 
with tool cabinets. The intermediate chests typically do not have 
handles. The intermediate and top chests may have the capability of 
being bolted together.
    Side cabinets are designed to be bolted or otherwise attached to 
the side of the base storage cabinet to expand the storage capacity 
of the base tool cabinet.
    Subject tool chests and cabinets also may be packaged with a 
tool set included. Packaging a subject tool chest and cabinet with a 
tool set does not remove an otherwise covered subject tool chest and 
cabinet from the scope. When this occurs, the tools are not part of 
the subject merchandise.
