SUMMARY: Based on affirmative final determinations by the Department of Commerce (Commerce) and the International Trade Commission (ITC), Commerce is issuing a countervailing duty (CVD) order on wooden cabinets and vanities and components thereof (wooden cabinets and vanities) from the People’s Republic of China (China). DATES: Applicable April 21, 2020.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background In accordance with section 705(d) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (Act), on February 28, 2020, Commerce published its affirmative final determination that countervailable subsidies are being provided to producers and exporters of wooden cabinets and vanities from China.1 On April 13, 2020, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determination that an industry in the United States is materially injured within the meaning of section 705(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act by reason of subsidized imports of subject merchandise from China.2 1 See Wooden Cabinets and Vanities and Components Thereof from the People’s Republic of China: Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination, 85 FR 11962 (February 28, 2020) (Final Determination). 2 See Letter to Jeffrey Kessler, Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Enforcement and Compliance, PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Scope of the Order The products covered by this order are wooden cabinets and vanities from China. For a complete description of the scope of this order, see the Appendix to this notice. Countervailing Duty Order On April 13, 2020, in accordance with section 705(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determination in this investigation, in which it found that an industry in the United States is materially injured within the meaning of section 705(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act by reason of subsidized imports of wooden cabinets and vanities from China.3 Therefore, in accordance with sections 705(c)(2) and 706 of the Act, Commerce is issuing this countervailing duty order. Because the ITC determined that imports of wooden cabinets and vanities from China are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from China, entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of countervailing duties. Therefore, in accordance with section 706(b)(1) of the Act, Commerce will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, countervailing duties for all relevant entries of wooden cabinets and vanities from China, which are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 12, 2019, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination,4 but will not include entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures period and before the publication of the ITC’s final injury determination under section 705(b) of the Act, as further described below. Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 706 of the Act, we will instruct CBP to reinstitute the suspension of liquidation of wooden cabinets and vanities from China 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 from David S. Johanson, Chairman of the U.S. International Trade Commission, dated April 13, 2020 (ITC Letter). 3 Id. 4 See Wooden Cabinets and Vanities and Components Thereof from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination, and Alignment of Final Determination with Final Antidumping Duty Determination, 84 FR 39798 (August 12, 2019) (Preliminary Determination) and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
