Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction. This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). Dated: June 18, 2019.

Countervailing Duty Orders On June 14, 2019, in accordance with sections 705(b)(1)(A)(i) and 705(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determinations that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of imports of glycine from India and China.3 Therefore, in accordance with sections 705(c)(2) and 706 of the Act, we are issuing these countervailing duty orders. Because the ITC determined that imports of glycine from India and China are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from India and China, entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of countervailing duties. As a result of the ITC’s final affirmative determinations, in accordance with section 706(a)(1) of the Act, Commerce will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, countervailing duties on unliquidated entries of glycine from India and China. Countervailing duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of glycine from India and China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after September 4, 2018, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determinations,4 but will not include entries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 in the Federal Register of the ITC’s injury determination, as further described below.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    In accordance with sections 705(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.210(c), Commerce 
published its affirmative final determinations in the countervailing

On June 14, 2019, the ITC notified Commerce of its final affirmative 
determinations that an industry in the United States is materially 
injured within the meaning of section 705(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act, by 
reason of subsidized imports of glycine from India and China.\2\

Scope of the Orders

    The merchandise covered by these orders is glycine from India and 
China. For a complete description of the scope of the orders, see the 
Appendix to this notice.

Countervailing Duty Orders

    On June 14, 2019, in accordance with sections 705(b)(1)(A)(i) and 
705(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final 
determinations that an industry in the United States is materially 
injured by reason of imports of glycine from India and China.\3\ 
Therefore, in accordance with sections 705(c)(2) and 706 of the Act, we 
are issuing these countervailing duty orders. Because the ITC 
determined that imports of glycine from India and China are materially 
injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from 
India and China, entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, 
are subject to the assessment of countervailing duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    As a result of the ITC's final affirmative determinations, in 
accordance with section 706(a)(1) of the Act, Commerce will direct U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction 
by Commerce, countervailing duties on unliquidated entries of glycine 
from India and China. Countervailing duties will be assessed on 
unliquidated entries of glycine from India and China entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after September 4, 
2018, 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 in the Federal 
Register of the ITC's injury determination, as further described below.

determination in the Federal Register, and to assess, upon further 
instruction by Commerce pursuant to 706(a)(1) of the Act, 
countervailing duties for each entry of the subject merchandise in an 
amount based on the net countervailable subsidy rates for the subject 
merchandise. We intend to instruct CBP to require, at the same time as 
importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this merchandise, 
cash deposits for each entry of subject merchandise equal to the rates 
noted below. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in 
effect until further notice. The all-others rates apply to all 
producers or exporters not specifically listed.

Provisional Measures

    Section 703(d) of the Act states that the suspension of liquidation 
pursuant to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in 
effect for more than four months. Commerce published its affirmative 
Preliminary Determinations on September 4, 2018. Therefore, the four-
month period beginning on the date of the publication of the 
Preliminary Determinations ended on January 1, 2019. Pursuant to 
section 707(b) of the Act, the collection of cash deposits at the rates 
listed above will begin on the date of publication of the ITC's final 
injury determination in the Federal Register.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 703(d) of the Act, Commerce 
instructed CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to 
liquidate, without regard to countervailing duties, unliquidated 
entries of glycine from India and China entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption after January 1, 2019, the date on which 
provisional measures expired, through the day preceding the date of 
publication of the ITC's final affirmative injury determinations in the 
Federal Register. Suspension of liquidation will resume on the date of 
publication of the ITC's final affirmative injury determinations in the 
Federal Register.
