AGENCY: 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), on August 19, 2019, Commerce published its affirmative final determination in the less-than-fairvalue (LTFV) investigation, including its affirmative determination of critical circumstances, with respect to imports of refillable stainless steel kegs from Mexico.1 On October 3, 2019, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determination pursuant to section 735(b)(1)(B) of the Act that the establishment of an industry in the United States is materially retarded by reason of the LTFV imports of refillable stainless steel kegs from Mexico, and its determination that critical circumstances do not exist with respect to imports of subject merchandise from Mexico.2 1 See Refillable Stainless Steel Kegs From Mexico: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Final Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances, 84 FR 42894 (August 19, 2019). 2 See Notification Letter from the ITC, dated October 3, 2019 (ITC Letter).

For a complete description of the scope of the order, see the Appendix to this notice. Antidumping Duty Order As stated above, on October 3, 2019, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determination in this investigation, in which it found that the establishment of an industry in the United States is materially retarded within the meaning of section 735(b)(1)(B) of the Act by reason of imports of refillable stainless steel kegs from Mexico sold at LTFV, and further found that critical circumstances do not exist with respect to imports of subject merchandise from Mexico. Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(2) of the Act, Commerce is issuing this antidumping duty order. Because the ITC determined that the establishment of an industry in the United States is materially retarded by imports of refillable stainless steel kegs from Mexico that are sold at LTFV, section 736(b)(2) of the Act is applicable. Accordingly, Commerce will instruct 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 refillable stainless steel kegs from Mexico exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the merchandise for entries of refillable stainless steel kegs from Mexico which are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative determination under section 735(b) of the Act. Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, Commerce will instruct CBP to suspend liquidation of all appropriate entries of refillable stainless steel kegs from Mexico as described in the Appendix to this notice which are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the ITC’s notice of final determination in the Federal Register. We will also instruct CBP to require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated customs duties on this merchandise, cash deposits for the subject merchandise equal to the estimated weighted-average antidumping margins listed below. The all others rate applies to all producers or exporters not specifically listed. E:\FR\FM\10OCN1.SGM 10OCN1 54592 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 197 / Thursday, October 10, 2019 / Notices In accordance with section 736(b)(2) of the Act, Commerce will instruct CBP to release any bond or other security, and refund any cash deposit made, to secure the payment of antidumping duties with respect to entries of the merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption before the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative determination under section 735(b) of the Act. Further, Commerce will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation of, and to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties, entries of refillable stainless steel kegs from Mexico which are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption prior to the date of publication of the ITC’s affirmative determination under section 735(b) of the Act. Provisional Measures and Critical Circumstances Because the ITC determined, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, that the establishment of an industry in the United States is materially retarded within the meaning of section 735(b)(1)(B) of the Act by reason of imports of refillable stainless steel kegs from Mexico sold at LTFV, and further found that critical circumstances do not exist with respect to imports of subject merchandise from Mexico,3 provisional measures are inapplicable. Similarly, because of the ITC’s final negative determination of critical circumstances, pursuant to section 735(c)(3) of the Act, Commerce will instruct CBP to terminate any retroactive suspension of liquidation, release any bond or other security, and refund any cash deposit required to secure the payment of antidumping duties with respect to entries of refillable stainless steel kegs from Mexico entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption before the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative determination under section 735(b) of the Act.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by this order are refillable stainless 
steel kegs from Mexico. For a complete description of the scope of the 
order, see the Appendix to this notice.

Antidumping Duty Order

    As stated above, on October 3, 2019, in accordance with section 
735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determination 
in this investigation, in which it found that the establishment of an 
industry in the United States is materially retarded within the meaning 
of section 735(b)(1)(B) of the Act by reason of imports of refillable 
stainless steel kegs from Mexico sold at LTFV, and further found that 
critical circumstances do not exist with respect to imports of subject 
merchandise from Mexico. Therefore, in accordance with section 
735(c)(2) of the Act, Commerce is issuing this antidumping duty order.
    Because the ITC determined that the establishment of an industry in 
the United States is materially retarded by imports of refillable 
stainless steel kegs from Mexico that are sold at LTFV, section 
736(b)(2) of the Act is applicable. Accordingly, Commerce will instruct 
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 refillable stainless steel kegs from 
Mexico exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the 
merchandise for entries of refillable stainless steel kegs from Mexico 
which are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after the date of publication of the ITC's final affirmative 
determination under section 735(b) of the Act.

Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, Commerce will 
instruct CBP to suspend liquidation of all appropriate entries of 
refillable stainless steel kegs from Mexico as described in the 
Appendix to this notice which are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the date of publication of the ITC's notice 
of final determination in the Federal Register. We will also instruct 
CBP to require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit 
estimated customs duties on this merchandise, cash deposits for the 
subject merchandise equal to the estimated weighted-average antidumping 
margins listed below. The all others rate applies to all producers or 
exporters not specifically listed.

[[Page 54592]]

    In accordance with section 736(b)(2) of the Act, Commerce will 
instruct CBP to release any bond or other security, and refund any cash 
deposit made, to secure the payment of antidumping duties with respect 
to entries of the merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption before the date of publication of the ITC's final 
affirmative determination under section 735(b) of the Act. Further, 
Commerce will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation 
of, and to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties, entries of 
refillable stainless steel kegs from Mexico which are entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption prior to the date of 
publication of the ITC's affirmative determination under section 735(b) 
of the Act.

Provisional Measures and Critical Circumstances

    Because the ITC determined, in accordance with section 735(d) of 
the Act, that the establishment of an industry in the United States is 
materially retarded within the meaning of section 735(b)(1)(B) of the 
Act by reason of imports of refillable stainless steel kegs from Mexico 
sold at LTFV, and further found that critical circumstances do not 
exist with respect to imports of subject merchandise from Mexico,\3\ 
provisional measures are inapplicable. Similarly, because of the ITC's 
final negative determination of critical circumstances, pursuant to 
section 735(c)(3) of the Act, Commerce will instruct CBP to terminate 
any retroactive suspension of liquidation, release any bond or other 
security, and refund any cash deposit required to secure the payment of 
antidumping duties with respect to entries of refillable stainless 
steel kegs from Mexico entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption before the date of publication of the ITC's final 
affirmative determination under section 735(b) of the Act.
