Dated: June 15, 2020. Jeffrey I. Kessler, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance. Appendix—Scope of the Investigations The merchandise covered by these investigations consists of certain rotary walkbehind lawn mowers, which are grass-cutting machines that are powered by internal combustion engines. The scope of these investigations covers certain walk-behind lawn mowers, whether self-propelled or nonself-propelled, whether finished or unfinished, whether assembled or unassembled, and whether containing any additional features that provide for functions in addition to mowing. Walk-behind lawn mowers within the scope of these investigations are only those powered by an internal combustion engine with a power rating of less than 3.7 kilowatts. These internal combustion engines are typically spark ignition, single or multiple cylinder, air cooled, internal combustion engines with vertical power take off shafts with a maximum displacement of 196cc. Walk-behind lawn mowers covered by this scope typically must be certified and comply with the Consumer Products Safety Commission Safety Standard For WalkBehind Power Lawn Mowers under the 16 CFR part 1205. However, lawn mowers that meet the physical descriptions above, but are not certified under 16 CFR part 1205 remain subject to the scope of these proceedings. The internal combustion engines of the lawn mowers covered by this scope typically must comply with and be certified under http://enforcement.trade.gov/tlei/notices/factual_ info_final_rule_FAQ_07172013.pdf. 51 See Temporary Rule Modifying AD/CVD Service Requirements Due to COVID–19; Extension of Effective Period, 85 FR 29615 (May 18, 2020). PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Environmental Protection Agency air pollution controls title 40, chapter I, subchapter U, part 1054 of the Code of Federal Regulations standards for small nonroad spark-ignition engines and equipment. However, lawn mowers that meet the physical descriptions above but that do not have engines certified under 40 CFR part 1054 or other parts of subchapter U remain subject to the scope of these proceedings. For purposes of these investigations, an unfinished and/or unassembled lawn mower means at a minimum, a sub-assembly comprised of an engine and a cutting deck shell attached to one another. A cutting deck shell is the portion of the lawn mower— typically of aluminum or steel—that houses and protects a user from a rotating blade. Importation of the subassembly whether or not accompanied by, or attached to, additional components such as a handle, blade(s), grass catching bag, or wheel(s) constitute an unfinished lawn mower for purposes of these investigations. The inclusion in a third country of any components other than the mower sub assembly does not remove the lawn mower from the scope. A lawn mower is within the scope of these investigations regardless of the origin of its engine. The lawn mowers subject to these investigations are typically at subheading: 8433.11.0050. Lawn mowers subject to these investigations may also enter under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) 8407.90.1010 and 8433.90.1090. The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes only, and the written description of the merchandise under investigation is dispositive.

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 May 1, 2020, Commerce published its affirmative final determinations in the less-than-fairvalue (LTFV) investigations of quartz surface products from India and Turkey.1 On June 15, 2020, 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 quartz surface products from India and Turkey.2 Scope of the Orders The merchandise covered by these orders is quartz surface products from India and Turkey. For a complete description of the scope of the Orders, see the Appendix to this notice. Antidumping Duty Orders On June 15, 2020, 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 quartz surface products from India and Turkey.3 Therefore, Commerce is issuing these antidumping duty orders in accordance with sections 735(c)(2) and 736 of the Act. Because the ITC determined that imports of quartz surface products from India and Turkey are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from India and Turkey, which are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties. 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 quartz surface products from India and Turkey. Antidumping duties will be adjusted for export subsidies found in the final determinations of the companion countervailing duty investigations.4 Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of quartz surface products from India and Turkey entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after December 13, 2019, 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. Additionally, because the estimated weighted-average dumping margin for Ermas¸ Madencilik Turizm Sanayi Ve Ticaret Anonim S ¸ irketi (Ermas¸) was determined to be zero in the LTFV investigation, Commerce is directing CBP to not suspend liquidation of entries of subject merchandise produced and exported by Ermas¸. However, entries of subject merchandise in any other producer/exporter combination, e.g., merchandise produced by a third party and exported by Ermas¸, or produced by Ermas¸ and exported by a third party, are subject to the applicable cash deposit rates equal to the estimated weighted-average dumping margins noted below. Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 736 of the Act, except for subject merchandise produced and exported by Ermas¸, Commerce will instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation of quartz surface products from India and Turkey 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 Federal Register. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the amount as indicated below. Accordingly, effective on the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determination, CBP will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the cash deposit rates listed below.6 The allothers rate applies to all producers or exporters not specifically listed. Estimated Weighted-Average Dumping Margins The estimated weighted-average dumping margins for each antidumping duty order are as follows: Weighted-average dumping margin (percent) Exporter/producer Cash deposit rate (adjusted for subsidy offset(s)) (percent) India Antique Marbonite Private Limited; Shivam Enterprise; and Prism Johnson Limited ........................

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. At the request of exporters that account for a significant proportion of quartz surface products from India and Turkey, we extended the fourmonth period to six months in the Preliminary Determinations published on December 13, 2019. Therefore, the extended period, beginning on the date of publication of the preliminary determination, ended on June 9, 2020. Pursuant to section 737(b) of the Act, the collection of cash deposits at the rates listed above will begin on the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination. Therefore, 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 quartz surface products from India and Turkey entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after June 10, 2020, the first day provisional measures were no longer in effect, until and through the day preceding the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination in the Federal Register. Suspension of liquidation will resume on the date of publication of the ITC’s final determination in the Federal Register.

Interested parties can find a list of antidumping duty orders currently in effect at http://enforcement.trade.gov/ stats/iastats1.html. These orders are published in accordance with section 736(a) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.211(b). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:08 Jun 19, 2020 Jkt 250001 Dated: June 16, 2020. Jeffrey I. Kessler, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance. Appendix I Scope of the Orders The merchandise covered by these Orders is certain quartz surface products. Quartz surface products consist of slabs and other surfaces created from a mixture of materials that includes predominately silica (e.g., quartz, quartz powder, cristobalite, glass powder) as well as a resin binder (e.g., an unsaturated polyester). The incorporation of other materials, including, but not limited to, pigments, cement, or other additives does not remove the merchandise from the scope of these Orders. However, the scope of these Orders only includes products where the silica content is greater than any other single material, by actual weight. Quartz surface products are typically sold as rectangular slabs with a total surface area of approximately 45 to 60 square feet and a nominal thickness of one, two, or three centimeters. However, the scope of these Orders includes surface products of all other sizes, thicknesses, and shapes. In addition to slabs, the scope of these Orders includes, but is not limited to, other surfaces such as countertops, backsplashes, vanity tops, bar tops, work tops, tabletops, flooring, wall facing, shower surrounds, fire place surrounds, mantels, and tiles. Certain quartz surface products are covered by these Orders whether polished or unpolished, cut or uncut, fabricated or not fabricated, cured or uncured, edged or not edged, finished or unfinished, thermoformed or not thermoformed, packaged or unpackaged, and regardless of the type of surface finish. In addition, quartz surface products are covered by these Orders whether or not they are imported attached to, or in conjunction with, non-subject merchandise such as sinks, sink bowls, vanities, cabinets, and furniture. If quartz surface products are imported attached to, or in conjunction with, such non-subject merchandise, only the quartz surface product is covered by the scope. Subject merchandise includes material matching the above description that has been finished, packaged, or otherwise fabricated in a third country, including by cutting, polishing, curing, edging, thermoforming, attaching to, or packaging with another product, or any other finishing, packaging, or fabrication that would not otherwise remove the merchandise from the scope of these Orders if performed in the country of manufacture of the quartz surface products. The scope of these Orders does not cover quarried stone surface products, such as granite, marble, soapstone, or quartzite. Specifically excluded from the scope of these Orders are crushed glass surface products. PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Cash deposit rate (adjusted for subsidy offset(s)) (percent) 5.17 5.13 Crushed glass surface products must meet each of the following criteria to qualify for this exclusion: (1) The crushed glass content is greater than any other single material, by actual weight; (2) there are pieces of crushed glass visible across the surface of the product; (3) at least some of the individual pieces of crushed glass that are visible across the surface are larger than 1 centimeter wide as measured at their widest cross-section (Glass Pieces); and (4) the distance between any single Glass Piece and the closest separate Glass Piece does not exceed three inches. The products subject to the scope are currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under the following subheading: 6810.99.0010. Subject merchandise may also enter under subheadings 6810.11.0010, 6810.11.0070, 6810.19.1200, 6810.19.1400, 6810.19.5000, 6810.91.0000, 6810.99.0080, 6815.99.4070, 2506.10.0010, 2506.10.0050, 2506.20.0010, 2506.20.0080, and 7016.90.1050.

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 May 1, 2020, 
Commerce published its affirmative final determinations in the less-
than-fair-value (LTFV) investigations of quartz surface products from 
India and Turkey.\1\ On June 15, 2020, 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 quartz surface products from 
India and Turkey.\2\

Final Determinations).

Determinations,'' dated June 15, 2020 (ITC Notification Letter).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Orders

    The merchandise covered by these orders is quartz surface products 
from India and Turkey. For a complete description of the scope of the 
Orders, see the Appendix to this notice.

Antidumping Duty Orders

    On June 15, 2020, 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 quartz surface products from India and 
Turkey.\3\ Therefore, Commerce is issuing these antidumping duty orders 
in accordance with sections 735(c)(2) and 736 of the Act. Because the 
ITC determined that imports of quartz surface products from India and 
Turkey are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of 
such merchandise from India and Turkey, which are entered or withdrawn 
from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of 
antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ 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 quartz surface 
products from India and Turkey. Antidumping duties will be adjusted for 
export subsidies found in the final determinations of the companion 
countervailing duty investigations.\4\ Antidumping duties will be 
assessed on unliquidated entries of quartz surface products from India 
and Turkey entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after December 13, 2019, 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.

    \5\ See Certain Quartz Surface Products from India: Preliminary 
Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value,

Determination, and Extension of Provisional Measures, 84 FR 68111 
(December 13, 2019) (collectively, Preliminary Determinations).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Additionally, because the estimated weighted-average dumping margin 
for Erma[scedil] Madencilik Turizm Sanayi Ve Ticaret Anonim 
[Scedil]irketi (Erma[scedil]) was determined to be zero in the LTFV 
investigation, Commerce is directing CBP to not suspend liquidation of 
entries of subject merchandise produced and exported by Erma[scedil]. 
However, entries of subject merchandise in any other producer/exporter 
combination, e.g., merchandise produced by a third party and exported 
by Erma[scedil], or produced by Erma[scedil] and exported by a third 
party, are subject to the applicable cash deposit rates equal to the 
estimated weighted-average dumping margins noted below.

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 736 of the Act, except for subject 
merchandise produced and exported by Erma[scedil], Commerce will 
instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation of quartz surface 
products from India and Turkey 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 Federal Register. These instructions suspending 
liquidation will remain in effect until further notice.
    We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the 
amount as indicated below. Accordingly, effective on the date of 
publication of the ITC's final affirmative injury determination, CBP 
will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit 
estimated duties on this subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to 
the cash deposit rates listed below.\6\ The all-others rate applies to 
all producers or exporters not specifically listed.

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. At the request of exporters that account for a 
significant proportion of quartz surface products from India and 
Turkey, we extended the four-month period to six months in the 
Preliminary Determinations published on December 13, 2019. Therefore, 
the extended period, beginning on the date of publication of the 
preliminary determination, ended on June 9, 2020. Pursuant to section 
737(b) of the Act, the collection of cash deposits at the rates listed 
above will begin on the date of publication of the ITC's final injury 
determination.
    Therefore, 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 quartz surface products from India and Turkey 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after June 
10, 2020, the first day provisional measures were no longer in effect, 
until and through the day preceding the date of publication of the 
ITC's final injury determination in the Federal Register. Suspension of 
liquidation will resume on the date of publication of the ITC's final 
determination in the Federal Register.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice constitutes the antidumping duty orders with respect to 
quartz surface products from India and Turkey pursuant to section 
736(a) of the Act. Interested parties can find a list of antidumping 
duty orders currently in effect at http://enforcement.trade.gov/stats/iastats1.html.
    These orders are published in accordance with section 736(a) of the

    Dated: June 16, 2020.

Appendix I

Scope of the Orders

    The merchandise covered by these Orders is certain quartz 
surface products. Quartz surface products consist of slabs and other 
surfaces created from a mixture of materials that includes 
predominately silica (e.g., quartz, quartz powder, cristobalite, 
glass powder) as well as a resin binder (e.g., an unsaturated 
polyester). The incorporation of other materials, including, but not 
limited to, pigments, cement, or other additives does not remove the 
merchandise from the scope of these Orders. However, the scope of 
these Orders only includes products where the silica content is 
greater than any other single material, by actual weight. Quartz 
surface products are typically sold as rectangular slabs with a 
total surface area of approximately 45 to 60 square feet and a 
nominal thickness of one, two, or three centimeters. However, the 
scope of these Orders includes surface products of all other sizes, 
thicknesses, and shapes. In addition to slabs, the scope of these 
Orders includes, but is not limited to, other surfaces such as 
countertops, backsplashes, vanity tops, bar tops, work tops, 
tabletops, flooring, wall facing, shower surrounds, fire place 
surrounds, mantels, and tiles. Certain quartz surface products are 
covered by these Orders whether polished or unpolished, cut or 
uncut, fabricated or not fabricated, cured or uncured, edged or not 
edged, finished or unfinished, thermoformed or not thermoformed, 
packaged or unpackaged, and regardless of the type of surface 
finish. In addition, quartz surface products are covered by these 
Orders whether or not they are imported attached to, or in 
conjunction with, non-subject merchandise such as sinks, sink bowls, 
vanities, cabinets, and furniture. If quartz surface products are 
imported attached to, or in conjunction with, such non-subject 
merchandise, only the quartz surface product is covered by the 
scope.
    Subject merchandise includes material matching the above 
description that has been finished, packaged, or otherwise 
fabricated in a third country, including by cutting, polishing, 
curing, edging, thermoforming, attaching to, or packaging with 
another product, or any other finishing, packaging, or fabrication 
that would not otherwise remove the merchandise from the scope of 
these Orders if performed in the country of manufacture of the 
quartz surface products. The scope of these Orders does not cover 
quarried stone surface products, such as granite, marble, soapstone, 
or quartzite. Specifically excluded from the scope of these Orders 
are crushed glass surface products. Crushed glass surface products 
must meet each of the following criteria to qualify for this 
exclusion: (1) The crushed glass content is greater than any other 
single material, by actual weight; (2) there are pieces of crushed 
glass visible across the surface of the product; (3) at least some 
of the individual pieces of crushed glass that are visible across 
the surface are larger than 1 centimeter wide as measured at their 
widest cross-section (Glass Pieces); and (4) the distance between 
any single Glass Piece and the closest separate Glass Piece does not 
exceed three inches.
    The products subject to the scope are currently classified in 
the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under 
the following subheading: 6810.99.0010. Subject merchandise may also 
enter under subheadings 6810.11.0010, 6810.11.0070, 6810.19.1200, 
6810.19.1400, 6810.19.5000, 6810.91.0000, 6810.99.0080, 
6815.99.4070, 2506.10.0010, 2506.10.0050, 2506.20.0010, 
2506.20.0080, and 7016.90.1050. The HTSUS subheadings set forth 
above are provided for convenience and U.S. Customs purposes only. 
The written description of the scope is dispositive.
