Withdrawal of notice of intent to prepare an environmental impact statement. ACTION: The Evanston-Mountain View Ranger District of the Uinta-WasatchCache National Forest (Forest) is withdrawing the Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the West Fork Smiths Fork Colorado River Cutthroat Trout Enhancement project. The original NOI was published in the Federal Register on August 25, 2017. No significant issues were identified during the scoping period or any other opportunity to comment. Upon further evaluation, the responsible official has determined that the proposed action fits within an identified categorical exclusion (CE); there are no extraordinary circumstances; and the action would not have significant effects to the human environment. As a result, the Forest is withdrawing its intent to prepare an EIS and is now preparing a CE. All comments previously received regarding this project will be retained and considered in the development of the CE. SUMMARY: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Questions concerning withdrawal of the NOI should be addressed to Paul Chase, Fisheries Biologist, at the following address: Logan Ranger District, UintaWasatch-Cache National Forest, 1500 E Highway 89, Logan, UT 84321; via phone at 435–755–3692; or via email at paul.chase@usda.gov.

Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of acetone from Singapore and Spain entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 31, 2018, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determinations,5 but will not include entries occurring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 determination, as further described below. 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., acetone from Singapore and Spain), effective on the date of publication of the ITC final determinations 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 estimated weighted-average dumping margins listed below.

In addition to the IUPAC name, acetone is also referred to as +-ketopropane (or betaketopropane), ketone propane, methyl ketone, dimethyl ketone, DMK, dimethyl carbonyl, propanone, 2-propanone, dimethyl formaldehyde, pyroacetic acid, pyroacetic ether, and pyroacetic spirit. Acetone is an isomer of the chemical formula C3H6O, with a specific molecular formula of CH3COCH3 or (CH3)2CO. The scope covers both pure acetone (with or without impurities) and acetone that is combined or mixed with other products, including, but not limited to, isopropyl alcohol, benzene, diethyl ether, methanol, chloroform, and ethanol. Acetone that has been combined with other products is included within the scope, regardless of whether the combining occurs in third countries. The scope also includes acetone that is commingled with acetone from sources not subject to this investigation. For combined and commingled products, only the acetone component is covered by the scope of this investigation. However, when acetone is combined with acetone components from sources not subject to this investigation, those third country acetone components may still be subject to other acetone investigations. Notwithstanding the foregoing language, an acetone combination or mixture that is transformed through a chemical reaction into another product, such that, for example, the acetone can no longer be separated from the other products through a distillation process (e.g., methyl methacrylate (MMA) or Bisphenol A (BPA)), is excluded from this investigation. A combination or mixture is excluded from these investigations if the total acetone component (regardless of the source or sources) comprises less than 5 percent of the combination or mixture, on a dry weight basis. The Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) registry number for acetone is 67–64–1. The merchandise covered by this investigation is currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 2914.11.1000 and 2914.11.5000. Combinations or mixtures of acetone may enter under subheadings in Chapter 38 of the HTSUS, including, but not limited to, those under heading 3814.00.1000, 3814.00.2000, 3814.00.5010, and 3814.00.5090.

ACTION: Notification of Annual Quantitative Limit on Imports of Certain Apparel from Haiti. AGENCY: CBERA, as amended, provides duty-free treatment for certain apparel articles imported directly from Haiti. One of the preferences is known as the ‘‘value-added’’ provision, which requires that apparel meet a minimum threshold percentage of value added in Haiti, the United States, and/or certain beneficiary countries. The provision is subject to a quantitative limitation, which is calculated as a percentage of total apparel imports into the United States for each 12-month annual period. For the annual period from December 20, 2019 through December 19, 2020, the quantity of imports eligible for preferential treatment under the valueadded provision is 376,935,586 square meters equivalent.

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 21, 
2019, Commerce published its affirmative final determinations in the 
less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigations of acetone from Singapore 
and Spain.\1\ On December 5, 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 LTFV imports of acetone from Singapore and 
Spain.\2\ The ITC published its final determinations on December 10, 
2019.\3\

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

Scope of the Orders

    The merchandise covered by these orders is acetone from Singapore 
and Spain. For a complete description of the scope of the orders, see 
the Appendix to this notice.

Antidumping Duty Orders

    On December 5, 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 acetone from Singapore and Spain.\4\ 
Therefore, in accordance with sections 735(c)(2) and 736 of the Act, 
Commerce is issuing these antidumping duty orders. Because the ITC 
determined that imports of acetone from Singapore and Spain are 
materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such 
merchandise from Singapore and Spain, which are entered or withdrawn 
from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of 
antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See ITC Notification 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 acetone from 
Singapore and Spain. Antidumping duties will be assessed on 
unliquidated entries of acetone from Singapore and Spain entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 31, 2018, 
the date of publication of the Preliminary Determinations,\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 determination, as further described below.

No Shipments, 84 FR 37990 (August 5, 2019) (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., acetone from Singapore and Spain), effective on the date of 
publication of the ITC final determinations 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 estimated weighted-average dumping margins listed 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.

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

Provisional Measures

    Section 733(d) of the Act states that suspension of liquidation 
pursuant to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in 
effect for more than four months, except that Commerce may extend the 
four-month period to no more than six months at the request of 
exporters representing a significant proportion of exports of the 
subject merchandise. Commerce's Preliminary Determinations were 
published on August 5, 2019.\6\ Commerce's Final Determinations were 
not extended and were published on October 21, 2019.\7\ As such, the 
four-month period beginning on the date of publication of the 
Preliminary Determinations ended on December 3, 2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Preliminary Determinations.
    \7\ See Final Determinations.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act, Commerce 
instructed CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation, and to 
liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, unliquidated entries 
of acetone from Singapore and Spain entered or withdrawn from warehouse 
for consumption after December 3, 2019, the date on which the 
provisional measures expired, through the day preceding the date of 
publication of the ITC's final affirmative injury determinations in the 
Federal Register. Suspension of liquidation will resume on the date of 
publication of the ITC's final affirmative injury determinations in the 
Federal Register.

Appendix--Scope of the Orders

    The merchandise covered by these orders is all grades of liquid 
or aqueous acetone. Acetone is also known under the International 
Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) name propan-2-one. In 
addition to the IUPAC name, acetone is also referred to as [szlig]-
ketopropane (or beta-ketopropane), ketone propane, methyl ketone, 
dimethyl ketone, DMK, dimethyl carbonyl, propanone, 2-propanone, 
dimethyl formaldehyde, pyroacetic acid, pyroacetic ether, and 
pyroacetic spirit. Acetone is an isomer of the chemical formula 
C3H6O, with a specific molecular formula of 
CH3COCH3 or (CH3)2CO.
    The scope covers both pure acetone (with or without impurities) 
and acetone that is combined or mixed with other products, 
including, but not limited to, isopropyl alcohol, benzene, diethyl 
ether, methanol, chloroform, and ethanol. Acetone that has been 
combined with other products is included within the scope, 
regardless of whether the combining occurs in third countries.
    The scope also includes acetone that is commingled with acetone 
from sources not subject to this investigation.
    For combined and commingled products, only the acetone component 
is covered by the scope of this investigation. However, when acetone 
is combined with acetone components from sources not subject to this 
investigation, those third country acetone components may still be 
subject to other acetone investigations.
    Notwithstanding the foregoing language, an acetone combination 
or mixture that is transformed through a chemical reaction into 
another product, such that, for example, the acetone can no longer 
be separated from the other products through a distillation process 
(e.g., methyl methacrylate (MMA) or Bisphenol A (BPA)), is excluded 
from this investigation.
    A combination or mixture is excluded from these investigations 
if the total acetone component (regardless of the source or sources) 
comprises less than 5 percent of the combination or mixture, on a 
dry weight basis.
    The Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) registry number for acetone 
is 67-64-1.
    The merchandise covered by this investigation is currently 
classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS) subheadings 2914.11.1000 and 2914.11.5000. Combinations or 
mixtures of acetone may enter under subheadings in Chapter 38 of the 
HTSUS, including, but not limited to, those under heading 
3814.00.1000, 3814.00.2000, 3814.00.5010, and 3814.00.5090. The list 
of items found under these HTSUS subheadings is non-exhaustive. 
Although these HTSUS subheadings and CAS registry number are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written 
description of the scope of this investigation is dispositive.
