The frozen warmwater shrimp and prawn products included in the scope of the order, regardless of definitions in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTS’’), are products which are processed from warmwater shrimp and prawns through freezing and which are sold in any count size. The products described above may be processed from any species of warmwater shrimp and prawns. Warmwater shrimp and prawns are generally classified in, but are not limited to, the Penaeidae family. Some examples of the farmed and wild-caught warmwater species include, but are not limited to, white-leg shrimp (Penaeus vannemei), banana prawn (Penaeus merguiensis), fleshy prawn (Penaeus chinensis), giant river prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii), giant tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon), redspotted shrimp (Penaeus brasiliensis), southern brown shrimp (Penaeus subtilis), southern pink shrimp (Penaeus notialis), southern rough shrimp (Trachypenaeus curvirostris), southern white shrimp (Penaeus schmitti), blue shrimp (Penaeus stylirostris), western white shrimp (Penaeus occidentalis), and Indian white prawn (Penaeus indicus). Frozen shrimp and prawns that are packed with marinade, spices or sauce are included in the scope of the order. In addition, food preparations, which are not ‘‘prepared meals,’’ that contain more than 20 percent by weight of shrimp or prawn are also included in the scope of the order. Excluded from the scope are: (1) Breaded shrimp and prawns (HTS subheading 1605.20.10.20); (2) shrimp and prawns generally classified in the Pandalidae family and commonly referred to as coldwater shrimp, in any state of processing; (3) fresh shrimp and prawns whether shell-on or peeled (HTS subheadings 0306.23.00.20 and 0306.23.00.40); (4) shrimp and prawns in prepared meals (HTS subheading 1605.20.05.10); (5) dried shrimp and prawns; (6) canned warmwater shrimp and prawns (HTS subheading 1605.20.10.40); and (7) certain battered shrimp. Battered shrimp is a shrimp-based product: (1) That is produced from fresh (or thawed-from-frozen) and peeled shrimp; (2) to which a ‘‘dusting’’ layer of rice or wheat flour of at least 95 percent purity has been applied; (3) with the entire surface of the shrimp flesh thoroughly and evenly coated with the flour; (4) with the non-shrimp content of the end product 21 ‘‘Tails’’ in this context means the tail fan which includes the telson and the uropods. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:47 Jul 07, 2021 Jkt 253001 constituting between four and 10 percent of the product’s total weight after being dusted, but prior to being frozen; and (5) that is subjected to individually quick frozen (‘‘IQF’’) freezing immediately after application of the dusting layer. When dusted in accordance with the definition of dusting above, the battered shrimp product is also coated with a wet viscous layer containing egg and/or milk, and par-fried. The products covered by this order are currently classified under the following HTS subheadings: 0306.17.00.03, 0306.17.00.06, 0306.17.00.09, 0306.17.00.12, 0306.17.00.15, 0306.17.00.18, 0306.17.00.21, 0306.17.00.24, 0306.17.00.27, 0306.17.00.40, 1605.21.10.30, and 1605.29.10.10.

For a full description of the scope of this order, see the appendix of this notice. AD Order On July 1, 2021, in accordance with sections 735(b)(1)(A)(i) and 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determination that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of imports of chassis from China that are sold in the United States at LTFV.3 Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(2) of the Act, we are issuing this AD order. Because the ITC determined that imports of chassis 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 antidumping duties. Therefore, in accordance with sections 736(a)(1) of the Act, Commerce will direct U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (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 chassis from China. Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of chassis from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after March 4, 2021, the date of publication of the AD Preliminary Determination, but will not include entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures period and before the publication of the ITC’s final injury 1 See Certain Chassis and Subassemblies Thereof from the People’s Republic of China: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 86 FR 26694 (May 17, 2021). 2 See ITC’s Letter, ‘‘Notification of ITC Final Determination,’’ dated July 1, 2021 (ITC Notification Letter) 3 Id.

These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. Commerce will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the estimated weighted-average dumping margins indicated in the table below, adjusted by the export subsidy offset.5 Accordingly, effective on the date of publication in the Federal Register of the notice of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determination, CBP must require, at the same time as importers would deposit estimated normal customs duties on subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the rates listed in the table below.

This order is published in accordance with sections 736(a) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.211(b). Dated: July 1, 2021. Christian Marsh, Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance. Appendix Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by this order consists of 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 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), PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 wheel end components, slack adjusters, axles, brake chambers, locking pins, and tires and wheels; • Landing gear assemblies, for connection to the chassis frame, capable of supporting the chassis when it is not engaged to a tractor; and • Assemblies 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 order. 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. Individual components entered and sold by themselves are not subject to the order, but components entered with or for further assembly with a finished or unfinished chassis are subject merchandise. A finished chassis is ultimately comprised of several different types of subassemblies. Within each subassembly there are numerous components that comprise a given subassembly. 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 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 order are typically classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) at subheadings: 8716.39.0090 and 8716.90.5060. Imports of E:\FR\FM\08JYN1.SGM 08JYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 128 / Thursday, July 8, 2021 / Notices finished and unfinished chassis may also enter under HTSUS subheading 8716.90.5010.

Certain Chassis and Subassemblies Thereof From the People's 
Republic of China: Antidumping Duty Order

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: Based on affirmative final determinations by the Department of 
Commerce (Commerce) and International Trade Commission (ITC), Commerce 
is issuing its antidumping duty (AD) order on certain chassis and 
subassemblies thereof (chassis) from the People's Republic of China 
(China).

DATES: Applicable July 8, 2021.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Hermes Pinilla or Mary Kolberg, AD/CVD

respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 17, 2021, Commerce published its affirmative final 
determination in the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation of 
chassis from China.\1\ On July 1, 2021, the ITC notified Commerce of 
its affirmative final determination that, pursuant to sections 
735(b)(1)(A)(i) and 735(d) of the Act, an industry in the United States 
is materially injured by reason of imports of subject merchandise from 
China that are sold in the United States at LTFV.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Certain Chassis and Subassemblies Thereof from the 
People's Republic of China: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales 
at Less Than Fair Value, 86 FR 26694 (May 17, 2021).
    \2\ See ITC's Letter, ``Notification of ITC Final 
Determination,'' dated July 1, 2021 (ITC Notification Letter)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are certain chassis and 
subassemblies thereof from China. For a full description of the scope 
of this order, see the appendix of this notice.

AD Order

    On July 1, 2021, in accordance with sections 735(b)(1)(A)(i) and 
735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determination 
that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason 
of imports of chassis from China that are sold in the United States at 
LTFV.\3\ Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(2) of the Act, we 
are issuing this AD order. Because the ITC determined that imports of 
chassis 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 antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, in accordance with sections 736(a)(1) of the Act, 
Commerce will direct U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (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 chassis from China. Antidumping duties will be assessed on 
unliquidated entries of chassis from China entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after March 4, 2021, the date of 
publication of the AD Preliminary Determination, 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 735(b) of the Act, as further described in 
the ``Provisional Measures'' section of this notice.\4\

People's Republic of China People's Republic of China: Preliminary 
Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 85 FR

accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum (PDM).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation and Cash Deposits

    Except as noted in the ``Provisional Measures'' section of this 
notice, in accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, Commerce 
will instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on all relevant 
entries of chassis from China. These instructions suspending 
liquidation will remain in effect until further notice.
    Commerce will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to 
the estimated weighted-average dumping margins indicated in the table 
below, adjusted by the export subsidy offset.\5\ Accordingly, effective 
on the date of publication in the Federal Register of the notice of the 
ITC's final affirmative injury determination, CBP must require, at the 
same time as importers would deposit estimated normal customs duties on 
subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the rates listed in the 
table below.

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. Commerce published the AD Preliminary 
Determination in this investigation on March 4, 2021.
    The provisional measures period, beginning on the date of 
publication of the AD Preliminary Determination, ends on July 1, 2021. 
Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act and our 
practice, Commerce will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of 
liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, 
unliquidated entries of chassis from China entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption after July 1, 2021, the final day on which 
the provisional measures were in effect, until and through the day 
preceding the date of publication of the ITC's final affirmative injury 
determination in the Federal Register. Suspension of liquidation and 
the collection of cash deposits will resume on the date of publication 
of the ITC's final determination in the Federal Register.

Appendix

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by this order consists of 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 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 assemblies, for connection to the chassis 
frame, capable of supporting the chassis when it is not engaged to a 
tractor; and
     Assemblies 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 
order.
    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.
    Individual components entered and sold by themselves are not 
subject to the order, but components entered with or for further 
assembly with a finished or unfinished chassis are subject 
merchandise. A finished chassis is ultimately comprised of several 
different types of subassemblies. Within each subassembly there are 
numerous components that comprise a given subassembly.
    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 order are 
typically classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United 
States (HTSUS) at subheadings: 8716.39.0090 and 8716.90.5060. 
Imports of

finished and unfinished chassis may also enter under HTSUS 
subheading 8716.90.5010. While the HTSUS subheadings are provided 
for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the 
merchandise under order is dispositive.
