SUMMARY: On May 23, 2018, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (the CAFC) reversed and vacated, in part, the Court of International Trade’s (the CIT) earlier decisions, vacated Commerce’s remand determination, and reinstated Commerce’s original scope ruling, in part. In Commerce’s original scope ruling, Commerce found that Whirlpool Corporation’s (Whirlpool) kitchen appliance door handles with plastic end caps were covered by the general scope language of the antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) orders on aluminum extrusions from the People’s Republic of China (China). On May 1, 2019, the CIT granted Whirlpool’s request to dismiss the litigation concerning its handles. Accordingly, Commerce is issuing a second amended final scope ruling. DATES: Applicable June 25, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 29845 Background On August 4, 2014, Commerce found that kitchen appliance door handles with plastic end caps imported by Whirlpool were subject to the Orders.1 Specifically, Commerce found that the handles did not fall under the finished merchandise or finished goods kit exclusions, based on its interpretation of these exclusions, as adopted in prior scope rulings.2 Whirlpool filed suit challenging the Final Scope Ruling. In Whirlpool I, the CIT held that ‘‘the general scope language is not reasonably interpreted to include the kitchen appliance door handles described in Whirlpool’s first scope ruling request{,}’’ (i.e., the kitchen appliance door handles with plastic end caps).3 The CIT further held that, even if the general scope language could be reasonably interpreted to include the handles, Commerce’s determination that the handles did not satisfy the finished merchandise exclusion based on Commerce’s interpretation of the exclusion was in error.4 Therefore, the CIT remanded the Final Scope Ruling to Commerce for reconsideration in light of Whirlpool I.5 In its Remand Redetermination, under protest, Commerce complied with Whirlpool I and found the handles were not covered by the general scope language of the Orders.6 Commerce did not further address the finished merchandise exclusion. The CIT affirmed the Remand Redetermination in Whirlpool II.7 Pursuant to Whirlpool II, on September 27, 2016, Commerce published its First Amended Final Scope Ruling, finding that the handles 1 See Memorandum, ‘‘Final Scope Ruling on Kitchen Appliance Door Handles with Plastic End Caps and Kitchen Appliance Door Handles without Plastic End Caps,’’ dated August 4, 2014 (Final Scope Ruling). 2 Id. at 16–21, citing, e.g., Memorandum to Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, ‘‘Final Scope Ruling on Meridian Kitchen Appliance Door Handles,’’ dated June 21, 2013, (Kitchen Appliance Door Handles I Scope Ruling) and Memorandum to Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, ‘‘Final Scope Ruling on J.A.

The Court affirmed Commerce’s determination that the kitchen appliance door handles without end caps are within the scope of the Orders.
