Certain lightweight thermal paper is typically (but not exclusively) used in point-of-sale applications such as ATM receipts, credit card receipts, gas pump receipts, and retail store receipts. The merchandise subject to this order may be classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under subheadings 4811.90.9035, 4811.90.9080, 4811.59.2000, 4820.10.20, 4823.40.0000, 3703.10.60, 4811.90.8030, 4811.90.8040, 4811.90.8050, 4811.90.9030, 4811.90.9050, and 4811.90.9090.10 11 Although HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this order is dispositive. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in this review are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum,12 which is dated jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES 6 Lightweight thermal paper is typically produced in jumbo rolls that are slit to the specifications of the converting equipment and then converted into finished slit rolls. Both jumbo and converted rolls (as well as LWTP in any other form, presentation, or dimension) are covered by the scope of this order. 7 A base coat, when applied is typically made of clay and/or latex like materials and is intended to cover the rough surface of the paper substrate and to provide insulating value. 8 A thermal active coating is typically made of sensitizer, dye, and co-reactant. 9 A top coat, when applied is typically made of polyvinyl acetone, polyvinyl alcohol, and/or like materials and is intended to provide environmental protection, an improved surface for press printing, and/or wear protection for the thermal print head. 10 HTSUS subheading 4811.90.8000 was a classification used for lightweight thermal paper until January 1, 2007. Effective that date, subheading 4811.90.8000 was replaced with 4811.90.8020 (for gift wrap, anon-subject product) and 4811.90.8040 (for ‘‘other’’ including lightweight thermal paper). HTSUS subheading 4811.90.8000 was a classification for lightweight thermal paper until July 1, 2005. Effective that date, subheading 4811.90.9000 was replaced with 4811.90.9010 (for tissue paper, a non-subject product) and 4811.90.9090 (for ‘‘other’’, including lightweight thermal paper). 11 As of January 1, 2009, the International Trade Commission deleted HTSUS subheadings 4811.90.8040 and 4811.90.9090 and added HTSUS subheadings 4811.90.8030, 4811.90.8050, 4811.90.9030, and 4811.90.9050 to the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (2009). See Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (2009), available at www.usitc.gov. These HTSUS subheadings were added to the scope of the order in lightweight thermal paper’s LTFV investigation. 12 See Memorandum, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the Second Expedited Five-Year Sunset Review of the VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:01 Mar 19, 2020 Jkt 250001 concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice.
