Steel propane cylinders range from 2.5 pound nominal gas capacity (approximate 6 pound water capacity and approximate 4–6 pound tare weight) to 42 pound nominal gas capacity (approximate 100 pound water capacity and approximate 28–32 pound tare weight). Steel propane cylinders have two or fewer ports and may be imported assembled or unassembled (i.e., welded or brazed before or after importation), with or without all components (including collars, valves, gauges, tanks, foot rings, and overfill prevention devices), and coated or uncoated. Also included within the scope are drawn cylinder halves, unfinished propane cylinders, collars, and foot rings for steel propane cylinders. An ‘‘unfinished’’ or ‘‘unassembled’’ propane cylinder includes drawn cylinder halves that have not been welded into a cylinder, cylinders that have not had flanges welded into the port hole(s), cylinders that are otherwise complete but have not had collars or foot rings welded to them, otherwise complete cylinders without a valve assembly attached, and cylinders that are otherwise complete except for testing, certification, and/or marking. This investigation also covers steel propane cylinders that meet, are produced to meet, or are certified as meeting, other U.S. or Canadian government, international, or industry standards (including, for example, American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), or American National Standard Institute (ANSI)), if they also meet, are produced to meet, or are certified as meeting USDOT Specification 4B, 4BA, or 4BW, or Transport Canada Specification 4BM, 4BAM, or 4BWM, or a United Nations pressure receptacle standard ISO 4706. Subject merchandise also includes steel propane cylinders that have been further processed in a third country, including but not limited to, attachment of collars, foot rings, or handles by welding or brazing, heat treatment, painting, testing, certification, or any other processing that would not otherwise remove the merchandise from the scope of the investigation if performed in the country of manufacture of the in-scope steel propane cylinders. Specifically excluded are seamless steel propane cylinders and propane cylinders made from stainless steel (i.e., steel containing at least 10.5 percent chromium by weight and less than 1.2 percent carbon by weight), aluminum, or composite fiber material. Composite fiber material is material consisting of the mechanical combination of two components: Fiber (typically glass, carbon, or aramid (synthetic polymer)) and a matrix material (typically polymer resin, ceramic, or metallic). The merchandise subject to this investigation is properly classified under statistical reporting numbers 7311.00.0060 and 7311.00.0090 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS statistical reporting numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise is dispositive.

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 glycine from India and Japan. In addition, Commerce is amending its final affirmative determination on glycine from India. DATES: Applicable June 21, 2019.

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), Commerce published its affirmative final determinations in the less-than-fair-value investigations of glycine from India and Japan on May 1, 2019.1 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 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act, by reason of the less-than-fair-value imports of glycine from India and Japan.2 Scope of the Orders The merchandise covered by these orders is glycine from India and Japan. For a complete description of the scope of the orders, see the Appendix to this notice. Amendment to Final Determination A ministerial error is defined as an error in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers ministerial.3 Pursuant to sections 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e) and (f), Commerce is amending the India Final Determination to reflect the correction of two ministerial errors in the final estimated weighted-average dumping margin calculated for Kumar Industries, India (Kumar). In addition, because Kumar’s estimated weighted-average dumping margin is the basis for the estimated weighted-average dumping margin determined for all other Indian producers and exporters of subject merchandise, we also are revising the ‘‘all-others’’ rate in the India Final 1 See Glycine from India: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 84 FR 18487 (May 1, 2019) (India Final Determination); see also Glycine from Japan: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 84 FR 18484 (May 1, 2019). 2 See section 735(d) of the Act (requiring notification); see also ITC Letter dated June 14, 2019 (ITC Letter). 3 See section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f).

Antidumping Duty Orders On June 14, 2019, in accordance with sections 735(b)(1)(A)(i) and 735(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 Japan.5 Therefore, in accordance with sections 735(c)(2) and 736 of the Act, we are issuing these antidumping duty orders. Because the ITC determined that imports of glycine from India and Japan are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from India and Japan, entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties. As a result of the ITC’s final affirmative determinations, 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 glycine from India and Japan. In the case of entries from India, the antidumping duties will be adjusted for export subsidies found in the final determination of the companion countervailing duty investigation.6 Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of glycine from India and Japan entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after October 31, 2018, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determinations, 7 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. from India and Japan), effective 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 by which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price or constructed export price of the merchandise, adjusted by the amount of export subsidies, where appropriate. We intend to instruct CBP to require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated import duties on this merchandise, cash deposits for each entry of subject merchandise equal to the rates noted below.

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 glycine from India and 
Japan. In addition, Commerce is amending its final affirmative 
determination on glycine from India.

DATES: Applicable June 21, 2019.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Edythe Artman at (202) 482-3931 or 
Kent Boydston at (202) 482-5649 (India), or John McGowan at (202) 482-

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), Commerce 
published its affirmative final determinations in the less-than-fair-
value investigations of glycine from India and Japan on May 1, 2019.\1\ 
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 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act, by 
reason of the less-than-fair-value imports of glycine from India and 
Japan.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Glycine from India: Final Determination of Sales at Less 
Than Fair Value, 84 FR 18487 (May 1, 2019) (India Final 
Determination); see also Glycine from Japan: Final Determination of 
Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 84 FR 18484 (May 1, 2019).
    \2\ See section 735(d) of the Act (requiring notification); see 
also ITC Letter dated June 14, 2019 (ITC Letter).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Orders

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

Amendment to Final Determination

    A ministerial error is defined as an error in addition, 
subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting 
from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other 
similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers 
ministerial.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to sections 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e) and 
(f), Commerce is amending the India Final Determination to reflect the 
correction of two ministerial errors in the final estimated weighted-
average dumping margin calculated for Kumar Industries, India (Kumar). 
In addition, because Kumar's estimated weighted-average dumping margin 
is the basis for the estimated weighted-average dumping margin 
determined for all other Indian producers and exporters of subject 
merchandise, we also are revising the ``all-others'' rate in the India 
Final

[[Page 29171]]

Determination.\4\ The amended estimated weighted-average dumping 
margins are listed in the Suspension of Liquidation section below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Memorandum, ``Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigation of 
Glycine from India: Allegations of Ministerial Errors in the Final 
Determination,'' dated May 29, 2019 (Ministerial Error Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Antidumping Duty Orders

    On June 14, 2019, in accordance with sections 735(b)(1)(A)(i) and 
735(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 Japan.\5\ 
Therefore, in accordance with sections 735(c)(2) and 736 of the Act, we 
are issuing these antidumping duty orders. Because the ITC determined 
that imports of glycine from India and Japan are materially injuring a 
U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from India and 
Japan, entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject 
to the assessment of antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See ITC Letter.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As a result of the ITC's final affirmative determinations, 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 glycine from 
India and Japan. In the case of entries from India, the antidumping 
duties will be adjusted for export subsidies found in the final 
determination of the companion countervailing duty investigation.\6\ 
Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of glycine 
from India and Japan entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after October 31, 2018, the date of publication of 
the Preliminary Determinations, \7\ 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 of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of 
Final Determination, 83 FR 54718 (October 31, 2018) (collectively, 
Preliminary Determinations).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 736 of the Act, Commerce will instruct 
CBP to reinstitute the suspension of liquidation of subject merchandise 
(i.e., glycine from India and Japan), effective 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 by which the normal value of the merchandise 
exceeds the export price or constructed export price of the 
merchandise, adjusted by the amount of export subsidies, where 
appropriate. We intend to instruct CBP to require, at the same time as 
importers would normally deposit estimated import 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 other producers or exporters not specifically listed.

Estimated Weighted-Average Dumping Margins

    The estimated weighted-average dumping margins for each antidumping 
duty order are as follows:

Provisional Measures

    Section 733(d) of the Act 8 9 states that suspension of
