SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES In accordance with sections 705(d) and 735(d) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), on March 28, 2019, Commerce published its affirmative final determination of sales at less-thanfair-value (LTFV) 1 and its affirmative final determination that countervailable subsidies are being provided to producers and exporters of steel wheels from China.2 On May 13, 2019, the ITC notified Commerce of its final affirmative determination that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of LTFV imports and subsidized imports of steel wheels from China, within the meaning of section 705(b)(1)(A)(i) and 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act.3 On May 17, 2019, ITC published its final determination in the Federal Register.4 Further, the ITC determined that critical circumstances do not exist with respect to LTFV imports and subsidized imports of steel wheels from China.5 Scope of the Orders The products covered by these orders are steel wheels from China. For a complete description of the scope of the orders, see the Appendix to this notice. AD Order On May 13, 2019, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce 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 steel wheels from China that are sold in the United States at LTFV.6 Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(2) of the Act, we are issuing this AD order. Because the ITC determined that imports of steel wheels from China are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties, as described below. As a result of the ITC’s final determination, 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 subject merchandise, for all relevant entries of steel wheels from China. Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of steel wheels from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after October 30, 2018, the date of publication of the LTFV Preliminary Determination,7 but will not be assessed on entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures period and before publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determination as further described below. Suspension of Liquidation—AD In accordance with section 736 of the Act, we will instruct CBP to reinstitute suspension of liquidation on all relevant entries of steel wheels from China, effective on the date of publication of the ITC Final Determination in the Federal Register, and to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce pursuant to section 736(a)(1) of the Act, antidumping duties for each entry of the subject merchandise equal to the amount that normal value exceeds export price or constructed export price for the subject merchandise. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. For each producer and exporter combination, Commerce will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits for estimated antidumping duties equal to the cash deposit rates listed below. Accordingly, effective on the date of publication of the ITC Final Determination, CBP will require, at the same time as an importer of record would normally deposit estimated duties on the subject merchandise, a cash deposit based on the rates listed below.8 As stated in the LTFV Final Determination, Commerce made certain adjustments for export subsidies from the CVD Final Determination to the estimated weighted-average dumping margin to determine each of the cash deposit rates.

At a request of Xiamen Sunrise Wheel Group Co., Ltd., the exporter that accounts for a significant proportion of steel wheels from China, we extended the four-month period to six months.9 Commerce published its LTFV Preliminary Determination on October 30, 2018. Therefore, the extended period, beginning on the date of publication of the LTFV Preliminary Determination, ended on April 28, 2019. Pursuant to section 737(b) of the Act, the collection of cash deposits at the rate listed above will begin on May 17, 2019, the date of publication of the ITC Final Determination. Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act, Commerce will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, unliquidated entries of steel wheels from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption after April 28, 2019, the date on which the provisional measures expired, through May 16, 2019, the day preceding the date of publication of the ITC Final Determinations in the Federal Register. Suspension of liquidation will resume on May 17, 2019, the date of publication of the ITC Final Determination in the Federal Register. On May 13, 2019, in accordance with section 705(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce 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 subsidized imports of steel wheels from China.10 Therefore, in accordance with section 705(c)(2) of the Act, we are issuing this CVD order. Because the ITC determined that imports of steel wheels from China are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption are subject to the assessment of countervailing duties, as described below. As a result of the ITC’s final determination, in accordance with section 706(a)(1) of the Act, Commerce will direct CBP to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, countervailing duties on all relevant entries of steel wheels from China. Countervailing duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of steel wheels from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 31, 2018, the date of publication of the CVD Preliminary Determination,11 but will not be assessed on entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures period and before publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determination as further described below. Suspension of Liquidation—CVD In accordance with section 706 of the Act, we will instruct CBP to reinstitute suspension of liquidation on all relevant entries of steel wheels from China, effective on the date of publication of the ITC’s notice of final affirmative injury determination in the Federal Register, and to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, pursuant to section 706(a)(1) of the Act, countervailing duties for each entry of the subject merchandise in an amount based on the net countervailable subsidy rate for the subject merchandise. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. Commerce will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the amounts as indicated below. Accordingly, effective khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Critical Circumstances—AD With regard to the ITC’s negative critical circumstances determination on LTFV imports of steel wheels from China, we will instruct CBP to lift suspension and to refund all cash deposits made to secure the payment of estimated antidumping duties with respect to entries of steel wheels from China, entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 1, 2018 (i.e., 90 days prior to the date of publication of the LTFV Preliminary Determination), but before October 30, 2018 (i.e., the date of publication of the LTFV Preliminary Determination). 9 See Steel Wheels From the People’s Republic of China: Postponement of Final Determination of Sales at Less-Than-Fair-Value, 84 FR 1063 (February 1, 2019).

Certain on-the-road steel wheels with a nominal wheel diameter of 22.5 inches and 24.5 inches are generally for Class 6, 7, and 8 commercial vehicles (as classified by the Federal Highway Administration Gross Vehicle Weight Rating system), including tractors, semi-trailers, dump trucks, garbage trucks, concrete mixers, and buses, and are the current standard wheel diameters for such applications. The standard widths of certain on-the-road steel wheels are 7.5 inches, 8.25 inches, and 9.0 inches, but all certain on-the-road steel wheels, regardless of width, are covered by the scope. While 22.5 inches and 24.5 inches are standard wheel sizes used by Class 6, 7, and 8 commercial vehicles, the scope covers sizes that may be adopted in the future for Class 6, 7, and 8 commercial vehicles. The scope includes certain on-the-road steel wheels with either a ‘‘hub-piloted’’ or ‘‘stud- piloted’’ mounting configuration, and includes rims and discs for such wheels, whether imported as an assembly or separately. The scope includes certain onthe-road steel wheels, discs, and rims, of carbon and/or alloy steel composition, whether cladded or not cladded, whether finished or not finished, and whether coated or uncoated. All on-the-road wheels sold in the United States are subject to the requirements of the National Highway Traffic VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:10 May 23, 2019 Jkt 247001 Safety Administration and bear markings, such as the ‘‘DOT’’ symbol, indicating compliance with applicable motor vehicle standards. See 49 CFR 571.120. The scope includes certain on-the-road steel wheels imported with or without the required markings. Certain on-the-road steel wheels imported as an assembly with a tire mounted on the wheel and/or with a valve stem attached are included. However, if the certain on-the-road steel wheel is imported as an assembly with a tire mounted on the wheel and/or with a valve stem attached, the certain on-the-road steel wheel is covered by the scope, but the tire and/or valve stem is not covered by the scope. The scope includes rims and discs that have been further processed in a third country, including, but not limited to, the welding and painting of rims and discs from China to form a steel wheel, or any other processing that would not otherwise remove the merchandise from the scope of the proceeding if performed in China. Excluded from the scope are: (1) Steel wheels for tube-type tires that require a removable side ring; (2) Aluminum wheels; (3) Wheels where steel represents less than fifty percent of the product by weight; and (4) Steel wheels that do not meet National Highway Traffic Safety Administration requirements, other than the rim marking requirements found in 49 CFR 571.120S5.2. Imports of the subject merchandise are currently classified under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 8708.70.4530, 8708.70.4560, 8708.70.6030, 8708.70.6060, 8716.90.5045, and 8716.90.5059.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    In accordance with sections 705(d) and 735(d) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (the Act), on March 28, 2019, Commerce published its 
affirmative final determination of sales at less-than-fair-value (LTFV) 
\1\ and its affirmative final determination that countervailable 
subsidies are being provided to producers and exporters of steel wheels 
from China.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Certain Steel Wheels from the People's Republic of 
China: Final Determination of Sales at Less-Than-Fair Value, 84 FR

    \2\ See Certain Steel Wheels from the People's Republic of 
China: Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination, 84 FR 
11744 (March 28, 2019) (CVD Final Determination).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On May 13, 2019, the ITC notified Commerce of its final affirmative 
determination that an industry in the United States is materially 
injured by reason of LTFV imports and subsidized imports of steel 
wheels from China, within the meaning of section 705(b)(1)(A)(i) and 
735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act.\3\ On May 17, 2019, ITC published its final 
determination in the Federal Register.\4\ Further, the ITC determined 
that critical circumstances do not exist with respect to LTFV imports 
and subsidized imports of steel wheels from China.\5\

determination (ITC Notification).

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

Scope of the Orders

    The products covered by these orders are steel wheels from China. 
For a complete description of the scope of the orders, see the Appendix 
to this notice.

AD Order

    On May 13, 2019, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, the 
ITC notified Commerce 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 steel wheels from 
China that are sold in the United States at LTFV.\6\ Therefore, in 
accordance with section 735(c)(2) of the Act, we are issuing this AD 
order. Because the ITC determined that imports of steel wheels from 
China are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of 
such merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties, as 
described below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See ITC Notification.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As a result of the ITC's final determination, 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 subject merchandise, for all relevant entries of steel 
wheels from China. Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated 
entries of steel wheels from China entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after October 30, 2018, the date of 
publication of the LTFV Preliminary Determination,\7\ but will not be 
assessed on entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional 
measures period and before publication of the ITC's final affirmative 
injury determination as further described below.

China: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less-Than-Fair-Value, 
83 FR 54568 (October 30, 2018) (LTFV Preliminary Determination).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suspension of Liquidation--AD

    In accordance with section 736 of the Act, we will instruct CBP to 
reinstitute suspension of liquidation on all relevant entries of steel 
wheels from China, effective on the date of publication of the ITC 
Final Determination in the Federal Register, and to assess, upon 
further instruction by Commerce pursuant to section 736(a)(1) of the 
Act, antidumping duties for each entry of the subject merchandise equal 
to the amount that normal value exceeds export price or constructed 
export price for the subject merchandise. These instructions suspending 
liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. For each 
producer and exporter combination, Commerce will also instruct CBP to 
require cash deposits for estimated antidumping duties equal to the 
cash deposit rates listed below.
    Accordingly, effective on the date of publication of the ITC Final 
Determination, CBP will require, at the same time as an importer of 
record would normally deposit estimated duties on the subject 
merchandise, a cash deposit based on the rates listed below.\8\ As 
stated in the LTFV Final Determination, Commerce made certain 
adjustments for export subsidies from the CVD Final Determination to 
the estimated weighted-average dumping margin to determine each of the 
cash deposit rates.

Provisional Measures--AD

    Section 733(d) of the Act states that suspension of liquidation 
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 a request of Xiamen Sunrise Wheel 
Group Co., Ltd., the exporter that accounts for a significant 
proportion of steel wheels from China, we extended the four-month 
period to six months.\9\ Commerce published its LTFV Preliminary 
Determination on October 30, 2018. Therefore, the extended period, 
beginning on the date of publication of the LTFV Preliminary 
Determination, ended on April 28, 2019. Pursuant to section 737(b) of 
the Act, the collection of cash deposits at the rate listed above will 
begin on May 17, 2019, the date of publication of the ITC Final 
Determination.

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

    Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act, Commerce 
will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to 
liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, unliquidated entries 
of steel wheels from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption after April 28, 2019, the date on which the provisional 
measures expired, through May 16, 2019, the day preceding the date of 
publication of the ITC Final Determinations in the Federal Register. 
Suspension of liquidation will resume on May 17, 2019, the date of 
publication of the ITC Final Determination in the Federal Register.

Critical Circumstances--AD

    With regard to the ITC's negative critical circumstances 
determination on LTFV imports of steel wheels from China, we will 
instruct CBP to lift suspension and to refund all cash deposits made to 
secure the payment of estimated antidumping duties with respect to 
entries of steel wheels from China, entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after August 1, 2018 (i.e., 90 days 
prior to the date of publication of the LTFV Preliminary 
Determination), but before October 30, 2018 (i.e., the date of 
publication of the LTFV Preliminary Determination).

CVD Order

    On May 13, 2019, in accordance with section 705(d) of the Act, the 
ITC notified Commerce 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 subsidized imports of steel 
wheels from China.\10\ Therefore, in accordance with section 705(c)(2) 
of the Act, we are issuing this CVD order. Because the ITC determined 
that imports of steel wheels from China are materially injuring a U.S. 
industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from China entered, 
or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption are subject to the 
assessment of countervailing duties, as described below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See ITC Notification.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As a result of the ITC's final determination, in accordance with 
section 706(a)(1) of the Act, Commerce will direct CBP to assess, upon 
further instruction by Commerce, countervailing duties on all relevant 
entries of steel wheels from China. Countervailing duties will be 
assessed on unliquidated entries of steel wheels from China entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 31, 2018, 
the date of publication of the CVD Preliminary Determination,\11\ but 
will not be assessed on entries occurring after the expiration of the 
provisional measures period and before publication of the ITC's final 
affirmative injury determination as further described below.

China: Preliminary Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination and

Determination).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Suspension of Liquidation--CVD
    In accordance with section 706 of the Act, we will instruct CBP to 
reinstitute suspension of liquidation on all relevant entries of steel 
wheels from China, effective on the date of publication of the ITC's 
notice of final affirmative injury determination in the Federal 
Register, and to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, pursuant 
to section 706(a)(1) of the Act, countervailing duties for each entry 
of the subject merchandise in an amount based on the net 
countervailable subsidy rate for the subject merchandise. These 
instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further 
notice. Commerce will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal 
to the amounts 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 the subject merchandise, a cash deposit for each 
entry of subject merchandise equal to the subsidy rates listed 
below.\12\ The all-others rate applies to all producers or exporters 
not specifically listed below, as appropriate.

Provisional Measures--CVD

    Section 703(d) of the Act states that suspension of liquidation 
instructions issued pursuant to an affirmative preliminary 
determination may not remain in effect for more than four months. 
Commerce published its CVD Preliminary Determination on August 31, 
2018. Therefore, the provisional measures period, beginning on the date 
of publication of the CVD Preliminary Determination, ended on December 
29, 2018. Pursuant to section 707(b) of the Act, the collection of cash 
deposits at the rate listed above will begin on the date of publication 
of the ITC's final injury determination.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 703(d) of the Act, Commerce 
will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to 
liquidate, without regard to countervailing duties, unliquidated 
entries of steel wheels from China entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption after December 29, 2018, the date on which 
the provisional measures expired, through the day preceding the date of 
publication of the ITC's final injury determinations 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

Scope of the Orders

    The scope of the orders covers certain on-the-road steel wheels, 
discs, and rims for tubeless tires, with a nominal rim diameter of 
22.5 inches and 24.5 inches, regardless of width. Certain on-the-
road steel wheels with a nominal wheel diameter of 22.5 inches and 
24.5 inches are generally for Class 6, 7, and 8 commercial vehicles 
(as classified by the Federal Highway Administration Gross Vehicle 
Weight Rating system), including tractors, semi-trailers, dump 
trucks, garbage trucks, concrete mixers, and buses, and are the 
current standard wheel diameters for such applications. The standard 
widths of certain on-the-road steel wheels are 7.5 inches, 8.25 
inches, and 9.0 inches, but all certain on-the-road steel wheels, 
regardless of width, are covered by the scope. While 22.5 inches and 
24.5 inches are standard wheel sizes used by Class 6, 7, and 8 
commercial vehicles, the scope covers sizes that may be adopted in 
the future for Class 6, 7, and 8 commercial vehicles.
    The scope includes certain on-the-road steel wheels with either 
a ``hub-piloted'' or ``stud- piloted'' mounting configuration, and 
includes rims and discs for such wheels, whether imported as an 
assembly or separately. The scope includes certain on-the-road steel 
wheels, discs, and rims, of carbon and/or alloy steel composition, 
whether cladded or not cladded, whether finished or not finished, 
and whether coated or uncoated. All on-the-road wheels sold in the 
United States are subject to the requirements of the National 
Highway Traffic Safety Administration and bear markings, such as the 
``DOT'' symbol, indicating compliance with applicable motor vehicle 
standards. See 49 CFR 571.120. The scope includes certain on-the-
road steel wheels imported with or without the required markings. 
Certain on-the-road steel wheels imported as an assembly with a tire 
mounted on the wheel and/or with a valve stem attached are included. 
However, if the certain on-the-road steel wheel is imported as an 
assembly with a tire mounted on the wheel and/or with a valve stem 
attached, the certain on-the-road steel wheel is covered by the 
scope, but the tire and/or valve stem is not covered by the scope.
    The scope includes rims and discs that have been further 
processed in a third country, including, but not limited to, the 
welding and painting of rims and discs from China to form a steel 
wheel, or any other processing that would not otherwise remove the 
merchandise from the scope of the proceeding if performed in China.
    Excluded from the scope are:
    (1) Steel wheels for tube-type tires that require a removable 
side ring;
    (2) Aluminum wheels;
    (3) Wheels where steel represents less than fifty percent of the 
product by weight; and
    (4) Steel wheels that do not meet National Highway Traffic 
Safety Administration requirements, other than the rim marking 
requirements found in 49 CFR 571.120S5.2.
    Imports of the subject merchandise are currently classified 
under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS) subheadings: 8708.70.4530, 8708.70.4560, 8708.70.6030, 
8708.70.6060, 8716.90.5045, and 8716.90.5059. Merchandise meeting 
the scope description may also enter under the following HTSUS 
subheadings: 4011.20.1015, 4011.20.5020, and 8708.99.4850. While 
HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, 
the written description of the scope of the orders is dispositive.
