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 strontium chromate from Austria and France. DATES: Applicable November 27, 2019. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Joshua Simonidis or Dennis McClure, AD/CVD Operations, Office VIII, Enforcement and Compliance, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone (202) 482–0608 or (202) 482–5973, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: 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 October 8, 2019, Commerce published its affirmative final determinations in the less-thanfair-value (LTFV) investigations of strontium chromate from Austria and France.1 On November 21, 2019, the ITC notified Commerce of its affirmative determinations, pursuant to section 735(d) of the Act, 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 LTFV imports of strontium chromate from Austria and France.2 Scope of the Orders The merchandise covered by these orders is strontium chromate from Austria and France. For a complete description of the scope of the orders, see the Appendix to this notice. As stated above, on November 21, 2019, in accordance with sections 1 See Strontium Chromate From Austria: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 84 FR 53676 (October 8, 2019) (Austria Final Determination); see also Strontium Chromate From France: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Final Negative Determination of Critical Circumstances, 84 FR 53678 (October 8, 2019) (France Final Determination). 2 See Notification Letter from the ITC, dated November 21, 2019. 20:21 Nov 26, 2019 Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation, and resume suspension of liquidation, on all relevant entries of strontium chromate from Austria and France, 3 Id. Antidumping Duty Orders VerDate Sep<11>2014 735(b)(1)(A)(i) and 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its determination that the industry in the United States producing strontium chromate is materially injured with respect to strontium chromate from Austria and France.3 Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(2) of the Act, we are issuing these antidumping duty orders. Because the ITC determined that imports of strontium chromate from Austria and France are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from Austria and France, entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties. Therefore, 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 strontium chromate from Austria and France. Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of strontium chromate from France entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after May 17, 2019, the date of publication of the preliminary determination,4 and on unliquidated entries of strontium chromate from Austria entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after June 18, 2019, the date of publication of the amended preliminary determination,5 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 determinations.

These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits for estimated antidumping duties equal to the amounts as indicated below. Accordingly, effective on the date of publication in the Federal Register of the ITC’s affirmative injury determinations, CBP will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated normal customs duties on this subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the estimated weighted-average dumping margins listed below.6 The relevant all-others rates apply to all producers or exporters not specifically listed, as appropriate. Provisional Measures Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions issued pursuant to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect for more than four months, except where exporters representing a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request Commerce to extend that fourmonth period to no more than six months. At the request of exporters that account for a significant proportion of exports of strontium chromate from Austria and France, we extended the four-month period to six months in each proceeding.7 In the France investigation, Commerce published the preliminary determinations on May 17, 2019.8 Therefore, the extended period, beginning on the date of publication of the preliminary determination, ended on November 13, 2019. In accordance with section 733(d) of the Act and our practice, we will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, unliquidated entries of strontium chromate from France entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption after November 13, 2019, the date on which the provisional measures expired, until and through the day preceding the date of publication of the ITC’s injury determinations in the Federal Register.

Accordingly, provisional measures for Austria will likely continue until and through the day preceding the date of publication of the ITC’s injury determinations in the Federal Register.

Strontium Chromate From Austria and France: Antidumping Duty 
Orders

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
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 strontium chromate from 
Austria and France.

DATES: Applicable November 27, 2019.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Joshua Simonidis or Dennis McClure, 
AD/CVD Operations, Office VIII, Enforcement and Compliance, U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 
20230; telephone (202) 482-0608 or (202) 482-5973, respectively.

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 October 8, 
2019, Commerce published its affirmative final determinations in the 
less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigations of strontium chromate from 
Austria and France.\1\ On November 21, 2019, the ITC notified Commerce 
of its affirmative determinations, pursuant to section 735(d) of the 
Act, 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 
LTFV imports of strontium chromate from Austria and France.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Strontium Chromate From Austria: Final Affirmative 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 84 FR 53676 (October 
8, 2019) (Austria Final Determination); see also Strontium Chromate 
From France: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than 
Fair Value and Final Negative Determination of Critical 
Circumstances, 84 FR 53678 (October 8, 2019) (France Final 
Determination).
    \2\ See Notification Letter from the ITC, dated November 21, 
2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Orders

    The merchandise covered by these orders is strontium chromate from 
Austria and France. For a complete description of the scope of the 
orders, see the Appendix to this notice.

Antidumping Duty Orders

    As stated above, on November 21, 2019, in accordance with sections 
735(b)(1)(A)(i) and 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its 
determination that the industry in the United States producing 
strontium chromate is materially injured with respect to strontium 
chromate from Austria and France.\3\ Therefore, in accordance with 
section 735(c)(2) of the Act, we are issuing these antidumping duty 
orders. Because the ITC determined that imports of strontium chromate 
from Austria and France are materially injuring a U.S. industry, 
unliquidated entries of such merchandise from Austria and France, 
entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the 
assessment of antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, 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 strontium chromate from Austria and France. 
Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of 
strontium chromate from France entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after May 17, 2019, the date of publication of 
the preliminary determination,\4\ and on unliquidated entries of 
strontium chromate from Austria entered or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after June 18, 2019, the date of publication of 
the amended preliminary determination,\5\ 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 
determinations.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, Preliminary Negative

at Not Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of Final Determination,

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

Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will 
instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation, and resume suspension 
of liquidation, on all relevant entries of strontium chromate from 
Austria and France, respectively, 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. These 
instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further 
notice.
    We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits for estimated 
antidumping duties equal to the amounts as indicated below. 
Accordingly, effective on the date of publication in the Federal 
Register of the ITC's affirmative injury determinations, CBP will 
require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated 
normal customs duties on this subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal 
to the estimated weighted-average dumping margins listed below.\6\ The 
relevant all-others rates apply to all producers or exporters not 
specifically listed, as appropriate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See section 736(a)(3) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Provisional Measures

    Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions issued pursuant 
to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect 
for more than four months, except where exporters representing a 
significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request 
Commerce to extend that four-month period to no more than six months. 
At the request of exporters that account for a significant proportion 
of exports of strontium chromate from Austria and France, we extended 
the four-month period to six months in each proceeding.\7\ In the 
France investigation, Commerce published the preliminary determinations 
on May 17, 2019.\8\ Therefore, the extended period, beginning on the 
date of publication of the preliminary determination, ended on November 
13, 2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See France Preliminary Determination; see also Austria 
Amended Preliminary Determination.
    \8\ See France Preliminary Determination.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with section 733(d) of the Act and our practice, we 
will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to 
liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, unliquidated entries 
of strontium chromate from France entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption after November 13, 2019, the date on which the 
provisional measures expired, until and through the day preceding the 
date of publication of the ITC's injury determinations in the Federal 
Register. Suspension of liquidation will resume on the date of 
publication of the ITC's determination in the Federal Register, as 
discussed above.

[[Page 65350]]

    In the Austria investigation, Commerce published the amended 
preliminary determination on June 18, 2019.\9\ Therefore, the extended 
provisional measures period for Austria, beginning on the date of 
publication of the amended preliminary determination, expires on 
December 15, 2019. Accordingly, provisional measures for Austria will 
likely continue until and through the day preceding the date of 
publication of the ITC's injury determinations in the Federal Register. 
Suspension of liquidation will continue on the date of publication of 
the ITC's determination in the Federal Register, as discussed above.
