SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) determines that aluminum extrusions exported from Vietnam, that are produced from aluminum previously extruded in the People’s Republic of China (China), are circumventing the antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) orders on aluminum extrusions from China. Commerce has also rescinded the minor alterations circumvention inquiry. AGENCY: DATES: In the Preliminary Determination, we stated that because of the affirmative determination of circumvention with respect to merchandise that has been completed or assembled in other foreign countries, pursuant to section 781(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), we did not make a determination with respect to the minor alterations inquiries, pursuant to section 781(c) of the Act.4 For these final results, because we continue to affirm circumvention with respect to merchandise that has been completed or assembled in other foreign countries, we are rescinding the minor alterations circumvention inquiries.

E:\FR\FM\12AUN1.SGM 12AUN1 39806 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 155 / Monday, August 12, 2019 / Notices Scope of the Circumvention Inquiries These inquiries cover aluminum extrusions that are made from aluminum previously extruded in China (including billets created from re-melted Chinese extrusions) that meet the description of the Orders and are exported from Vietnam, regardless of producer, exporter or importer (inquiry merchandise). This final ruling applies to all shipments of inquiry merchandise on or after the date of publication of the initiation of these inquiries. Methodology Commerce is conducting these inquiries in accordance with section 781(b) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying the Commerce’s final determination, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties in these inquiries are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues raised is attached to this notice as Appendix I. Based on our analysis of the record evidence and comments received, we made certain changes to the Preliminary Determination. jspears on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Final Affirmative Determination of Circumvention As detailed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we determine that aluminum extrusions exported from Vietnam, that are produced from aluminum previously extruded (including billets created from re-melted Chinese extrusions) in China, are circumventing the Orders. As such, we determine that it is appropriate to include this merchandise within the Orders and to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to suspend liquidation and require cash deposits for any unliquidated entries of aluminum extrusions from Vietnam, that are produced from aluminum previously extruded in China (including billets created from re-melted Chinese extrusions), as discussed below. Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(l)(3), Commerce will direct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation and to require a cash deposit of estimated duties on unliquidated entries of inquiry merchandise that were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after March 5, 2018, the date of publication of the initiation of these inquiries. The suspension of liquidation and cash deposit instructions will remain in VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:16 Aug 09, 2019 Jkt 247001 effect until further notice. Commerce will instruct CBP to require AD cash deposits equal to the China-wide rate of 86.01 percent 5 for all extruded aluminum from Vietnam produced from aluminum previously extruded in China (including billets created from re-melted Chinese extrusions), unless the importer/exporter can demonstrate that the aluminum consumed in production was previously extruded by a Chinese manufacturer with a company-specific separate rate. In that instance, the cash deposit rate will be the rate of the Chinese supplier of the aluminum extrusions used in the production process that has its own rate.6 Aluminum extrusions not produced from aluminum previously extruded in China are not subject to these inquiries and are not included within the scope of the Orders as a result of this final affirmative determination. Therefore, the suspension of liquidation and cash deposit requirements do not apply to such merchandise, subject to the following certification requirements: An importer of aluminum extrusions from Vietnam claiming that its aluminum extrusions were produced from nonChinese aluminum extrusions (including billets created from re-melted Chinese extrusions) must meet the certification and documentation requirements described in Appendices II, III, and IV. We determine that the following companies are not eligible for the certification process: China Zhongwang Holdings Ltd.; Global Vietnam Aluminum Co., Ltd.; Aluminicaste Fundicion de Mexico; Dalian Liwan Trade Co., Ltd.; Tianjin Boruxin Trading Co., Ltd.; Dragon Luxe Limited; Perfectus Aluminum Inc.; Perfectus Aluminum Acquisitions LLC; Pencheng Aluminum Enterprise Inc.

    The products covered by the Orders are aluminum extrusions. For a 
complete description of the scope of the Orders, see the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum.

Partial Rescission of Circumvention Inquiries

    In the Preliminary Determination, we stated that because of the 
affirmative determination of circumvention with respect to merchandise 
that has been completed or assembled in other foreign countries, 
pursuant to section 781(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), we did not make a determination with respect to the minor 
alterations inquiries, pursuant to section 781(c) of the Act.\4\ For 
these final results, because we continue to affirm circumvention with 
respect to merchandise that has been completed or assembled in other 
foreign countries, we are rescinding the minor alterations 
circumvention inquiries.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Preliminary Determination PDM at 15.

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

[[Page 39806]]

Scope of the Circumvention Inquiries

    These inquiries cover aluminum extrusions that are made from 
aluminum previously extruded in China (including billets created from 
re-melted Chinese extrusions) that meet the description of the Orders 
and are exported from Vietnam, regardless of producer, exporter or 
importer (inquiry merchandise). This final ruling applies to all 
shipments of inquiry merchandise on or after the date of publication of 
the initiation of these inquiries.

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting these inquiries in accordance with section 
781(b) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying 
the Commerce's final determination, see the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties in 
these inquiries are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A 
list of the issues raised is attached to this notice as Appendix I. 
Based on our analysis of the record evidence and comments received, we 
made certain changes to the Preliminary Determination.

Final Affirmative Determination of Circumvention

    As detailed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we determine 
that aluminum extrusions exported from Vietnam, that are produced from 
aluminum previously extruded (including billets created from re-melted 
Chinese extrusions) in China, are circumventing the Orders. As such, we 
determine that it is appropriate to include this merchandise within the 
Orders and to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
continue to suspend liquidation and require cash deposits for any 
unliquidated entries of aluminum extrusions from Vietnam, that are 
produced from aluminum previously extruded in China (including billets 
created from re-melted Chinese extrusions), as discussed below.

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(l)(3), Commerce will direct CBP 
to continue to suspend liquidation and to require a cash deposit of 
estimated duties on unliquidated entries of inquiry merchandise that 
were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after 
March 5, 2018, the date of publication of the initiation of these 
inquiries.
    The suspension of liquidation and cash deposit instructions will 
remain in effect until further notice. Commerce will instruct CBP to 
require AD cash deposits equal to the China-wide rate of 86.01 percent 
\5\ for all extruded aluminum from Vietnam produced from aluminum 
previously extruded in China (including billets created from re-melted 
Chinese extrusions), unless the importer/exporter can demonstrate that 
the aluminum consumed in production was previously extruded by a 
Chinese manufacturer with a company-specific separate rate. In that 
instance, the cash deposit rate will be the rate of the Chinese 
supplier of the aluminum extrusions used in the production process that 
has its own rate.\6\

Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2015-2016, 
82 FR 52265, 52267 (November 13, 2017).
    \6\ See, e.g., Glycine from the People's Republic of China: 
Preliminary Partial Affirmative Determination of Circumvention of 
the Antidumping Duty Order and Initiation of Scope Inquiry, 77 FR 
21532, 21535 (April 10, 2012), unchanged in Glycine from the 
People's Republic of China: Final Partial Affirmative Determination 
of Circumvention of the Antidumping Duty Order, 77 FR 73426 
(December 10, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Aluminum extrusions not produced from aluminum previously extruded 
in China are not subject to these inquiries and are not included within 
the scope of the Orders as a result of this final affirmative 
determination. Therefore, the suspension of liquidation and cash 
deposit requirements do not apply to such merchandise, subject to the 
following certification requirements: An importer of aluminum 
extrusions from Vietnam claiming that its aluminum extrusions were 
produced from non-Chinese aluminum extrusions (including billets 
created from re-melted Chinese extrusions) must meet the certification 
and documentation requirements described in Appendices II, III, and IV.
    We determine that the following companies are not eligible for the 
certification process: China Zhongwang Holdings Ltd.; Global Vietnam 
Aluminum Co., Ltd.; Aluminicaste Fundicion de Mexico; Dalian Liwan 
Trade Co., Ltd.; Tianjin Boruxin Trading Co., Ltd.; Dragon Luxe 
Limited; Perfectus Aluminum Inc.; Perfectus Aluminum Acquisitions LLC; 
Pencheng Aluminum Enterprise Inc. USA; Transport Aluminum Inc.; 
Aluminum Source Inc.; Aluminum Industrial Inc.; Global Aluminum (USA) 
Inc.; Aluminum Shapes, LLC; Century American Aluminum Inc.; American 
Apex Aluminum Inc.; and Global Tower Worldwide Ltd.\7\ Accordingly, 
aluminum extrusions from Vietnam that are produced, exported, or 
imported by these companies are ineligible for the certification 
process.

Certification Eligibility and Requirements

A. Eligibility for the Certification

    (1) Importers and exporters of aluminum extrusions from the 
Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnam) that were completed in 
Vietnam using aluminum not previously extruded in the People's 
Republic of China (China) (including billets created from re-melted 
Chinese extrusions) are eligible for the certification process 
detailed below and in the preliminary determination, with the 
exception of certain companies. The following companies are not 
eligible to participate in the certification process: China 
Zhongwang Holdings Ltd.; Global Vietnam Aluminum Co., Ltd.; 
Aluminicaste Fundicion

[[Page 39807]]

de Mexico; Dalian Liwan Trade Co., Ltd.; Tianjin Boruxin Trading 
Co., Ltd.; Dragon Luxe Limited; Perfectus Aluminum Inc.; Perfectus 
Aluminum Acquisitions LLC; Pencheng Aluminum Enterprise Inc. USA; 
Transport Aluminum Inc.; Aluminum Source Inc.; Aluminum Industrial 
Inc.; Global Aluminum (USA) Inc.; Aluminum Shapes, LLC; Century 
American Aluminum Inc.; American Apex Aluminum Inc.; and Global 
Tower Worldwide Ltd.

B. Certification Requirements for Importers and Exporters of 
Aluminum Extrusions Completed in Vietnam Using Aluminum Not 
Previously Extruded in China (Including Billets Created From Re-
Melted Chinese Extrusions)

    (1) For entries of aluminum extrusions completed in Vietnam that 
were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after March 5, 2018 (the date of publication of the initiation of 
these circumvention inquiries), for which the importer claims that 
the aluminum extrusions were completed (including extruded) in 
Vietnam using aluminum not previously extruded in China (including 
billets created from re-melted Chinese extrusions), the importer and 
exporter are required to meet the certification and documentation 
requirements detailed below in order for no AD and/or CVD cash 
deposit to be required on such entries.
    (2) The importer is required to complete and maintain the 
importer certification, attached as Appendix III. Where the importer 
uses an agent or broker to facilitate the entry process, it must 
obtain and provide the entry number as part of the certification. 
Agents of the importer, such as brokers, however, are not permitted 
to make this certification on behalf of the importer.
    (3) The exporter is required to complete and maintain the 
exporter certification, attached as Appendix IV. The exporter 
certification should be completed by the party selling the 
merchandise completed in Vietnam to the United States, which is not 
necessarily the producer of the product.
    (4) The exporter is further required to provide the importer 
with a copy of the exporter certification.
    (5) The importer is also required to maintain a copy of the 
exporter certification.
    (6) The importer and exporter are also required to maintain 
sufficient documentation (as indicated in the certifications) 
supporting their certifications.
    (7) The importer and exporter are required to maintain the 
certifications and supporting documentation for the later of (1) a 
period of five years from the date of entry or (2) a period of three 
years after the conclusion of any litigation in United States courts 
regarding such entries.
    (8) Although the importer will not be required to submit the 
certifications or supporting documentation to U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP) as part of the entry process, the importer 
and the exporter will be required to present the certifications and 
supporting documentation, to Commerce and/or CBP, as applicable, 
upon request by the respective agency.
    (9) The claims made in the certifications and any supporting 
documentation are subject to verification by Commerce and/or CBP.

C. Certification Timing Requirements for Importers and Exporters of 
Aluminum Extrusions Completed in Vietnam Using Aluminum Not 
Previously Extruded in China (Including Billets Created From Re-
Melted Chinese Extrusions)

    (1) For unliquidated entries of merchandise (a) shipped and/or 
(b) entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption during the 
period, March 5, 2018 (the date of publication of the initiation of 
these circumvention inquiries), through the 29th day after the date 
of publication of the final determination in the Federal Register, 
for which certifications are required:
    (a) The importers and exporters each have the option to complete 
a blanket certification covering multiple entries, individual 
certifications for each entry, or a combination thereof. Importer 
and exporter certifications for these entries should be completed, 
signed and dated within 45 days of publication of the final 
determination in the Federal Register.
    Accordingly, the relevant bullet in the certification should be 
edited to reflect that the certification was completed within this 
time frame. For example, the bullet in the importer certification 
that reads: ``This certification was completed by the time of filing 
the entry summary,'' could be edited as follows: ``The shipments/
products referenced herein entered within the 29th day after the mm/
dd/yyyy publication of the Final Determination Federal Register 
notice. This certification was completed on mm/dd/yyyy, within 45 
days of the Federal Register notice publication.''
    Similarly, the bullet in the exporter certification that reads, 
``This certification was completed by the time of shipment,'' could 
be edited as follows: ``The shipments/products referenced herein 
shipped within the 29th day after the mm/dd/yyyy publication of the 
Final Determination Federal Register notice. This certification was 
completed on mm/dd/yyyy, within 45 days of the Federal Register 
notice publication.''
    (b) Additionally, the exporter must provide the importer a copy 
of the exporter certification within 45 days of the publication of 
the final determination in the Federal Register.
    (2) For subject merchandise (1) shipped and/or (2) entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date that 
is 30 days after publication of the final determination in the 
Federal Register, for which certifications are required:
    (a) The importer certification must be completed, signed, and 
dated by the deadline for filing of the entry summary for the 
relevant importation; and
    (b) The exporter certification must be completed, signed, dated 
and provided to the importer by the time of shipment of the relevant 
entries.

D. Importers and Exporters Not Eligible for the Certification 
Process

    (1) Importers and exporters of aluminum extrusions from the 
Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnam):
     That were specifically identified above as not being 
eligible
     that were completed (including extruded) in Vietnam 
using aluminum previously extruded in China (including billets 
created from re-melted Chinese extrusions) and/or
     that do not meet the certification requirements 
detailed above are not eligible for the certification process 
detailed above.
    (2) For aluminum extrusions completed in Vietnam from aluminum 
previously extruded in China (including billets created from re-
melted Chinese extrusions) and, thus, subject to the antidumping 
duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) orders on aluminum 
extrusions from the People's Republic of China, A-570-967 and C-570-
968, respectively, Commerce has established the following third-
country case numbers in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE): 
A-552-998 and C-552-999.
    (3) For unliquidated entries (and entries for which liquidation 
has not become final) of merchandise not eligible for the 
certifications, that entered as non-AD/CVD type entries (e.g., type 
01) that were shipped and/or entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption during the period, March 5, 2018 (the date of 
publication of the initiation of these circumvention inquiries) 
through the 29th day after the date of publication of the final 
determination in the Federal Register, importers should file a Post 
Summary Correction with CBP, as applicable, in accordance with CBP's 
regulations, regarding conversion of such entries from non-AD/CVD 
type entries to AD/CVD type (e.g., types 03, 06,) entries and report 
those AD/CVD type entries using the third-country case numbers, A-
552-998 and C-552-999. Similarly, the importer should pay cash 
deposits on those entries, consistent with the regulations governing 
post summary corrections, that require payment of additional duties.
    (4) Further, Commerce intends to instruct CBP to suspend (under 
the third-country case numbers identified above) all unliquidated 
shipments of aluminum extrusions completed in Vietnam for which the 
certification and/or documentation requirements have not been met, 
and to require the importer to post applicable AD and CVD cash 
deposits equal to the rates as determined by Commerce. Entries 
suspended under these third-country case numbers will be liquidated 
pursuant to applicable administrative reviews of the China AD and 
CVD orders or through the automatic liquidation process.
