Chassis From China; Scheduling of the Final Phase of Countervailing Duty and Antidumping Duty Investigations, 3193-3195 [2021-00622]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 9 / Thursday, January 14, 2021 / Notices khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES with natural trail tread. Allowing bicycle use on these trails would not negatively impact opportunities for other visitors to experience scenic and aesthetic values on these trails. Existing signs along the administrative roads provide route information and safety messages about bicycling. The continued use of bicycles on the administrative roads would not require the addition of new humanmade features that would impact the natural landscape at the Chickamauga Battlefield. Safety Considerations The NPS will install new signs on the trails that convey safety messages about bicycling. Due to steep grades, the hiking trails would receive a ‘‘Black Diamond’’ designation according to the criteria that has been developed by the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA). Signs and educational materials would be posted at the Jackson Gap trailhead, at the intersection of the John Smartt Trail and Upper Truck Trail, near switchbacks, and in other strategic locations to convey important safety and regulatory information. Signs and educational materials would provide guidance on trail etiquette to mitigate the potential for user conflict and to help establish user norms. Signs would provide route names, trail direction and appropriate practices for yielding to others. The Jackson Gap and John Smartt Trails are well-constructed hiking trails within a natural zone of the park. They have existed for many decades in good condition without a high frequency of maintenance. Trail crews would continue to assess the Jackson Gap and John Smartt Trail during annual condition assessments, on regular patrols, and as reports are received concerning fallen trees or other hazards. Crews would continue to clean all drainages and culverts, remove loose rocks and debris, and prune vegetation as necessary. Trail rovers would conduct monthly monitoring to assist in identifying any additional maintenance needs. Volunteers will patrol these trails to provide safety information. Since the implementation of the current incident reporting system, there have been no reports of bicycle accidents on park administrative roads. As stated above, the administrative roads have signs conveying wayfinding information and safety messages. Electric Bicycles The NPS will evaluate the environmental impacts of allowing electric bicycles (e-bikes) on the administrative roads and hiking trails VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:43 Jan 13, 2021 Jkt 253001 under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) after the conclusion of the written determination process. Ebikes will only be considered in locations where traditional bicycles are already allowed. E-bikes will not be allowed anywhere in the park until compliance with the NEPA is completed and the Superintendent designates those locations for e-bike use in accordance with 36 CFR 1.7. Determination Based upon the foregoing, the NPS determines that (1) continuing to allow bicycle use on the administrative roads identified above; and (2) allowing bicycle use on the two miles of the Jackson Gap Trail and the upper section of the John Smartt Trail (identified in the EA) are consistent with the protection of the park’s natural, scenic and aesthetic values; safety considerations; and management objectives; and will not disturb wildlife or park resources.

The public record for these investigations may be viewed on the Commission’s electronic docket (EDIS) at https://edis.usitc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scope.—For purposes of these investigations, Commerce has defined the subject merchandise as ‘‘chassis and subassemblies thereof, whether finished or unfinished, whether assembled or unassembled, whether coated or uncoated, regardless of the number of axles, for carriage of containers, or other payloads (including self-supporting payloads) for road, marine roll-on/rolloff (RORO) and/or rail transport. Chassis are typically, but are not limited to, rectangular framed trailers with a suspension and axle system, wheels and tires, brakes, a lighting and electrical system, a coupling for towing behind a truck tractor, and a locking system or systems to secure the shipping container or containers to the chassis using twistlocks, slide pins or similar attachment devices to engage the corner fittings on the container or other payload. Subject merchandise includes, but is not limited to, the following subassemblies: • Chassis frames, or sections of chassis frames, including kingpins or kingpin assemblies, bolsters consisting of transverse beams with locking or support mechanisms, goosenecks, drop assemblies, extension mechanisms and/ or rear impact guards; • Running gear assemblies or axle assemblies for connection to the chassis frame, whether fixed in nature or capable of sliding fore and aft or lifting up and lowering down, which may or may not include suspension(s) (mechanical or pneumatic), wheel end components, slack adjusters, axles, brake chambers, locking pins, and tires and wheels; • Landing gear (legs) or landing gear assemblies, for connection to the chassis frame, capable of supporting the chassis when it is not engaged to a tractor; and E:\FR\FM\14JAN1.SGM 14JAN1 khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES 3194 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 9 / Thursday, January 14, 2021 / Notices • Assemblies and/or components that connect to the chassis frame or a section of the chassis frame, such as, but not limited to, pintle hooks or B-trains (which include a fifth wheel), which are capable of connecting a chassis to a converter dolly or another chassis. Importation of any of these subassemblies, whether assembled or unassembled, constitutes an unfinished chassis for purposes of this investigation. Subject merchandise also includes chassis, whether finished or unfinished, entered with or for further assembly with components such as, but not limited to: Hub and drum assemblies, brake assemblies (either drum or disc), axles, brake chambers, suspensions and suspension components, wheel end components, landing gear legs, spoke or disc wheels, tires, brake control systems, electrical harnesses and lighting systems. Processing of finished and unfinished chassis and components such as trimming, cutting, grinding, notching, punching, drilling, painting, coating, staining, finishing, assembly, or any other processing either in the country of manufacture of the in-scope product or in a third country does not remove the product from the scope. Inclusion of other components not identified as comprising the finished or unfinished chassis does not remove the product from the scope. This scope excludes dry van trailers, refrigerated van trailers and flatbed trailers. Dry van trailers are trailers with a wholly enclosed cargo space comprised of fixed sides, nose, floor and roof, with articulated panels (doors) across the rear and occasionally at selected places on the sides, with the cargo space being permanently incorporated in the trailer itself. Refrigerated van trailers are trailers with a wholly enclosed cargo space comprised of fixed sides, nose, floor and roof, with articulated panels (doors) across the rear and occasionally at selected places on the sides, with the cargo space being permanently incorporated in the trailer and being insulated, possessing specific thermal properties intended for use with selfcontained refrigeration systems. Flatbed (or platform) trailers consist of loadcarrying main frames and a solid, flat or stepped loading deck or floor permanently incorporated with and supported by frame rails and cross members. The finished and unfinished chassis subject to this investigation are typically classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) at subheadings 8716.39.00 or 8716.90.50 VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:43 Jan 13, 2021 Jkt 253001 (statistical reporting numbers 8716.39.0090 or 8716.90.5060). Imports of finished and unfinished chassis may also be reported under HTSUS statistical reporting number 8716.90.5010. While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under investigation is dispositive.’’ Background.—The final phase of these investigations is being scheduled pursuant to section 705(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b)), as a result of an affirmative preliminary determination by Commerce that certain benefits which constitute subsidies within the meaning of § 703 of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b) are being provided to manufacturers, producers, or exporters in China of chassis.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ahdia Bavari ((202) 205-3191), Office 
of Investigations, U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E Street 
SW, Washington, DC 20436. Hearing-impaired persons can obtain 
information on this matter by contacting the Commission's TDD terminal 
on 202-205-1810. Persons with mobility impairments who will need 
special assistance in gaining access to the Commission should contact 
the Office of the Secretary at 202-205-2000. General information 
concerning the Commission may also be obtained by accessing its 
internet server (https://www.usitc.gov). The public record for these 
investigations may be viewed on the Commission's electronic docket 
(EDIS) at https://edis.usitc.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Scope.--For purposes of these investigations, Commerce has defined 
the subject merchandise as ``chassis and subassemblies thereof, whether 
finished or unfinished, whether assembled or unassembled, whether 
coated or uncoated, regardless of the number of axles, for carriage of 
containers, or other payloads (including self-supporting payloads) for 
road, marine roll-on/roll-off (RORO) and/or rail transport. Chassis are 
typically, but are not limited to, rectangular framed trailers with a 
suspension and axle system, wheels and tires, brakes, a lighting and 
electrical system, a coupling for towing behind a truck tractor, and a 
locking system or systems to secure the shipping container or 
containers to the chassis using twistlocks, slide pins or similar 
attachment devices to engage the corner fittings on the container or 
other payload.
    Subject merchandise includes, but is not limited to, the following 
subassemblies:
     Chassis frames, or sections of chassis frames, including 
kingpins or kingpin assemblies, bolsters consisting of transverse beams 
with locking or support mechanisms, goosenecks, drop assemblies, 
extension mechanisms and/or rear impact guards;
     Running gear assemblies or axle assemblies for connection 
to the chassis frame, whether fixed in nature or capable of sliding 
fore and aft or lifting up and lowering down, which may or may not 
include suspension(s) (mechanical or pneumatic), wheel end components, 
slack adjusters, axles, brake chambers, locking pins, and tires and 
wheels;
     Landing gear (legs) or landing gear assemblies, for 
connection to the chassis frame, capable of supporting the chassis when 
it is not engaged to a tractor; and

[[Page 3194]]

     Assemblies and/or components that connect to the chassis 
frame or a section of the chassis frame, such as, but not limited to, 
pintle hooks or B-trains (which include a fifth wheel), which are 
capable of connecting a chassis to a converter dolly or another 
chassis.
    Importation of any of these subassemblies, whether assembled or 
unassembled, constitutes an unfinished chassis for purposes of this 
investigation.
    Subject merchandise also includes chassis, whether finished or 
unfinished, entered with or for further assembly with components such 
as, but not limited to: Hub and drum assemblies, brake assemblies 
(either drum or disc), axles, brake chambers, suspensions and 
suspension components, wheel end components, landing gear legs, spoke 
or disc wheels, tires, brake control systems, electrical harnesses and 
lighting systems.
    Processing of finished and unfinished chassis and components such 
as trimming, cutting, grinding, notching, punching, drilling, painting, 
coating, staining, finishing, assembly, or any other processing either 
in the country of manufacture of the in-scope product or in a third 
country does not remove the product from the scope. Inclusion of other 
components not identified as comprising the finished or unfinished 
chassis does not remove the product from the scope.
    This scope excludes dry van trailers, refrigerated van trailers and 
flatbed trailers. Dry van trailers are trailers with a wholly enclosed 
cargo space comprised of fixed sides, nose, floor and roof, with 
articulated panels (doors) across the rear and occasionally at selected 
places on the sides, with the cargo space being permanently 
incorporated in the trailer itself. Refrigerated van trailers are 
trailers with a wholly enclosed cargo space comprised of fixed sides, 
nose, floor and roof, with articulated panels (doors) across the rear 
and occasionally at selected places on the sides, with the cargo space 
being permanently incorporated in the trailer and being insulated, 
possessing specific thermal properties intended for use with self-
contained refrigeration systems. Flatbed (or platform) trailers consist 
of load-carrying main frames and a solid, flat or stepped loading deck 
or floor permanently incorporated with and supported by frame rails and 
cross members.
    The finished and unfinished chassis subject to this investigation 
are typically classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (HTSUS) at subheadings 8716.39.00 or 8716.90.50 
(statistical reporting numbers 8716.39.0090 or 8716.90.5060). Imports 
of finished and unfinished chassis may also be reported under HTSUS 
statistical reporting number 8716.90.5010. While the HTSUS subheadings 
are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written 
description of the merchandise under investigation is dispositive.''
    Background.--The final phase of these investigations is being 
scheduled pursuant to section 705(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 
U.S.C. 1671d(b)), as a result of an affirmative preliminary 
determination by Commerce that certain benefits which constitute 
subsidies within the meaning of Sec.  703 of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b) 
are being provided to manufacturers, producers, or exporters in China 
of chassis. The investigations were requested in petitions filed on 
July 30, 2020, by the Coalition of American Chassis Manufacturers, 
consisting of Cheetah Chassis Corporation, Fairless Hills, 
Pennsylvania, Hercules Enterprises, LLC, Hillsborough, New Jersey, 
Pitts Enterprises, Inc., Pittsview, Alabama, Pratt Industries, Inc., 
Bridgman, Michigan, and Stoughton Trailers, LLC, Stoughton, Wisconsin.
    For further information concerning the conduct of this phase of the 
investigations, hearing procedures, and rules of general application, 
consult the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, part 201, 
subparts A and B (19 CFR part 201), and part 207, subparts A and C (19 
CFR part 207).
    Participation in the investigations and public service list.--
Persons, including industrial users of the subject merchandise and, if 
the merchandise is sold at the retail level, representative consumer 
organizations, wishing to participate in the final phase of these 
investigations as parties must file an entry of appearance with the 
Secretary to the Commission, as provided in Sec.  201.11 of the 
Commission's rules, no later than 21 days prior to the hearing date 
specified in this notice. A party that filed a notice of appearance 
during the preliminary phase of the investigations need not file an 
additional notice of appearance during this final phase. The Secretary 
will maintain a public service list containing the names and addresses 
of all persons, or their representatives, who are parties to the 
investigations.
    Please note the Secretary's Office will accept only electronic 
filings during this time. Filings must be made through the Commission's 
Electronic Document Information System (EDIS, https://edis.usitc.gov.) 
No in-person paper-based filings or paper copies of any electronic 
filings will be accepted until further notice.
    Limited disclosure of business proprietary information (BPI) under 
an administrative protective order (APO) and BPI service list.--
Pursuant to Sec.  207.7(a) of the Commission's rules, the Secretary 
will make BPI gathered in the final phase of these investigations 
available to authorized applicants under the APO issued in the 
investigations, provided that the application is made no later than 21 
days prior to the hearing date specified in this notice. Authorized 
applicants must represent interested parties, as defined by 19 U.S.C. 
1677(9), who are parties to the investigations. A party granted access 
to BPI in the preliminary phase of the investigations need not reapply 
for such access. A separate service list will be maintained by the 
Secretary for those parties authorized to receive BPI under the APO.
    Staff report.--The prehearing staff report in the final phase of 
these investigations will be placed in the nonpublic record on March 4,
