SUMMARY: In response to a request from Air Master Awning LLC (Air Master), the Department of Commerce (Commerce) is initiating anticircumvention inquiries to determine whether imports of aluminum jalousie shutters that are processed in the Dominican Republic from window frame extrusions produced in the People’s Republic of China (China), are circumventing the antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) orders on aluminum extrusions from China. We are also self-initiating scope inquiries to determine whether the aluminum jalousie shutters are subject to the AD and CVD orders. DATES: Applicable May 6, 2019. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Fred Baker, AD/CVD Operations, Office VI, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–2924. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background Following Commerce’s final affirmative determinations of dumping and countervailable subsidies,1 and the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC)’s finding of material injury,2 Commerce issued AD and CVD orders on imports of aluminum extrusions 1 See Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 76 FR 18524 (April 4, 2011); and Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China: Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination, 76 FR 18521 (April 4, 2011). 2 See Certain Aluminum Extrusions from China, 76 FR 29007 (May 19, 2011). PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 19757 from China, which were published in the Federal Register on May 26, 2011.3 On September 25, 2018, pursuant to section 781(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.225(h), Air Master requested that Commerce initiate anti-circumvention inquiries on imports of aluminum jalousie shutters completed or assembled in the Dominican Republic using window frame extrusions sourced from China that are subject to the Orders.4 Air Master alleges that the completion/assembly of the aluminum jalousie shutters constitutes a ‘‘minor alteration,’’ within the meaning of 781(c) of the Act.5 Further, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.225(f), Air Master requested that Commerce issue preliminary determinations of circumvention of the Orders concurrently with the initiation, to suspend liquidation of imports of aluminum jalousie shutters from the Dominican Republic.6 Air Master submitted supplements to its request in October and December 2018.7 Separately, Commerce issued a supplemental questionnaire to Air Master on February 11, 2019,8 to which Air Master responded on February 19, 2019.9 3 See Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China: Antidumping Duty Order, 76 FR 30650 (May 26, 2011); and Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China: Countervailing Duty Order, 76 FR 30653 (May 26, 2011) (collectively, the Orders). 4 See Air Master Letter, ‘‘Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China, A–570–967 and C–570–968; Request for Circumvention Ruling Pursuant to Section 781(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930,’’ dated September 25, 2018 (AntiCircumvention Ruling Request). 5 Id. at 2. We note that Air Master’s AntiCircumvention Ruling Request alleges that the assembly of the aluminum jalousie shutters in the Dominican Republic represents a minor alteration within the meaning of section 781(c) of the Act. Because section 781(b) of the Act relates to ‘‘merchandise completed or assembled in other foreign countries,’’ and section 781(c) of the Act relates to ‘‘minor alterations of merchandise,’’ we are initiating anti-circumvention inquiries under both 781(b) and (c) of the Act. 6 Id. at 2 and 19. 7 See Air Master Letter, ‘‘Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China, A–570–967 and C–570–968; Request for Circumvention Ruling Pursuant to Section 781(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930,’’ dated October 1, 2018 (First Supplement to Anti-Circumvention Ruling Request); and Air Master Letter, ‘‘Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China, A–570–967 and C–570– 968; Request for Circumvention Ruling Pursuant to Section 781(c) of the Tariff of 1930; Submission of Supplemental Information,’’ dated December 18, 2018. 8 See Commerce Letter, ‘‘Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China AntiCircumvention Inquiry: Air Master Awning, LLP,’’ dated February 11, 2019. 9 See Air Master Letter, ‘‘Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China, A–570–967 and C–570–968; Anticircumvention Inquiry; Response of Air Master Awning LLC to the E:\FR\FM\06MYN1.SGM Continued 06MYN1
