Download as PDF jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES 29398 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 95 / Friday, May 15, 2020 / Notices Production under FTZ procedures could exempt CoLinx from customs duty payments on the foreign-status materials/components used in export production (estimated 4 percent of production). On its domestic sales, for the foreign-status materials/components noted below and in the existing scope of authority, CoLinx would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to kits of tapered roller bearing cup/cone assemblies and gearheads (duty rates, 2.5% or 5.8%). CoLinx would be able to avoid duty on foreign-status components which become scrap/waste. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production equipment. The materials/components sourced from abroad include tapered roller bearing cones, inner and outer races for tapered roller bearings, and fixed ratio speed changers (duty rates, 2.5% or 5.8%). The request indicates that certain tapered roller bearings are subject to an antidumping/countervailing duty (AD/ CVD) order if imported from China. The FTZ Board’s regulations (15 CFR 400.14(e)) require that merchandise subject to AD/CVD orders, or items which would be otherwise subject to suspension of liquidation under AD/ CVD procedures if they entered U.S. customs territory, be admitted to the zone in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41). The request also indicates that certain materials/components are subject to special duties under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 (Section 301), depending on the country of origin. The Section 301 decisions require subject merchandise to be admitted to FTZs in privileged foreign status. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary and sent to: ftz@trade.gov. The closing period for their receipt is June 24, 2020. A copy of the notification will be available for public inspection in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the Board’s website, which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz. For further information, contact Diane Finver at Diane.Finver@trade.gov or (202) 482–1367. Dated: May 11, 2020. Andrew McGilvray, Executive Secretary.

Commerce is notifying the public that the CIT’s final judgment is not in harmony with Commerce’s Amended Final Determination in the LTFV investigation of hot-rolled steel from Turkey.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On August 12, 2016, Commerce published its Final Determination in the LTFV investigation of hot-rolled steel from Turkey.1 Subsequently, on October 3, 2016, Commerce published its Amended Final Determination and Order.2 As reflected in Commerce’s Amended Final Determination, Commerce calculated estimated weighted-average dumping margins of 6.77 percent for C ¸ olakog˘lu, 4.15 percent for Erdemir, and 6.41 percent for all other producers and exporters of subject merchandise.3 C ¸ olakog˘lu and Erdemir appealed Commerce’s Final Determination, as amended by the Amended Final Determination, to the CIT. On March 22, 2018, the CIT remanded the Amended Final Determination for Commerce to explain or reconsider: (1) Its treatment 1 See Certain Hot-Rolled Steel Flat Products from the Republic of Turkey: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 81 FR 53428 (August 12, 2016) (Final Determination), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. 2 See Certain Hot-Rolled Steel Flat Products from Australia, Brazil, Japan, the Republic of Korea, the Netherlands, the Republic of Turkey, and the United Kingdom: Amended Final Affirmative Antidumping Determinations for Australia, the Republic of Korea, and the Republic of Turkey and Antidumping Duty Orders, 81 FR 67962 (October 3, 2016) (Amended Final Determination and Order). 3 Id., 81 FR at 67965.
