Notice of Scope Ruling Applications: In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(d)(3), we are notifying the public of the following scope ruling applications related to AD and CVD orders and findings filed in or around the month of August 2022. This notification includes, for each scope application: (1) identification of the AD and/or CVD orders at issue (19 CFR 351.225(c)(1)); (2) concise public AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58483 descriptions of the products at issue, including the physical characteristics (including chemical, dimensional and technical characteristics) of the products (19 CFR 351.225(c)(2)(ii)); (3) the countries where the products are produced and the countries from where the products are exported (19 CFR 351.225(c)(2)(i)(B)); (4) the full names of the applicants; and (5) the dates that the scope applications were filed with Commerce and the name of the ACCESS scope segment where the scope applications can be found.1 This notice does not include applications which have been rejected and not properly resubmitted. The scope ruling applications listed below are available on Commerce’s online e-filing and document management system, Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Electronic Service System (ACCESS), at https://access.trade.gov. Scope Ruling Applications Certain Vertical Shaft Engines Between 99cc and 225c, and Parts Thereof from the People’s Republic of China (China) (A–570–124/C–570–125); modified vertical shaft engines; 2 produced in and exported from China; submitted by Briggs & Stratton, LLC 1 See Regulations to Improve Administration and Enforcement of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Laws, 86 FR 52300, 52316 (September 20, 2021) (Final Rule) (‘‘It is our expectation that the Federal Register list will include, where appropriate, for each scope application the following data: (1) identification of the AD and/or CVD orders at issue; (2) a concise public summary of the product’s description, including the physical characteristics (including chemical, dimensional and technical characteristics) of the product; (3) the country(ies) where the product is produced and the country from where the product is exported; (4) the full name of the applicant; and (5) the date that the scope application was filed with Commerce.’’) 2 A spark-ignited, single-cylinder engine with a displacement of 209 cubic centimeters, with a maximum power output of 4.3 kW, and with a modified vertical shaft. The specific engine that is the subject of this application is model number R210–S manufactured in China by Chongqing Rato Technology Co., Ltd. (‘‘Rato’’), but with a significant modification. The R210–S has a horizontal crankshaft, but the engine has been modified to include a right angle gearbox that redirects power from a horizontal to a vertical orientation. Put simply, the horizontal crankshaft turns a gear, and that gear then turns a vertical take off shaft. As modified with the gearbox, the shaft comes out of the bottom (rather than from the side) of the engine. The complete engine (including the gearbox) may be referred to as a ‘‘modified R210–S’’ or simply as a modified vertical shaft engine (‘‘MVSE’’). Prior to entering the United States, the MVSEs at issue are mounted onto a PowerSmart brand lawn mower, model number DB2321SM, by the Chinese mower producer Zhejiang Dobest Power Tools Co., Ltd. (‘‘Dobest’’). The petitioner hypothesizes that if mounted, the MVSEs would enter under HTSUS number 8433.11.0060. If unmounted, the MVSEs would enter within HTSUS item number 8407.90.1010 because they generate under 4.476 kW of power. As stated above, these engines are produced in and exported from China.

    \2\ A spark-ignited, single-cylinder engine with a displacement 
of 209 cubic centimeters, with a maximum power output of 4.3 kW, and 
with a modified vertical shaft. The specific engine that is the 
subject of this application is model number R210-S manufactured in 
China by Chongqing Rato Technology Co., Ltd. (``Rato''), but with a 
significant modification. The R210-S has a horizontal crankshaft, 
but the engine has been modified to include a right angle gearbox 
that redirects power from a horizontal to a vertical orientation. 
Put simply, the horizontal crankshaft turns a gear, and that gear 
then turns a vertical take off shaft. As modified with the gearbox, 
the shaft comes out of the bottom (rather than from the side) of the 
engine. The complete engine (including the gearbox) may be referred 
to as a ``modified R210-S'' or simply as a modified vertical shaft

issue are mounted onto a PowerSmart brand lawn mower, model number 
DB2321SM, by the Chinese mower producer Zhejiang Dobest Power Tools 
Co., Ltd. (``Dobest''). The petitioner hypothesizes that if mounted, 
the MVSEs would enter under HTSUS number 8433.11.0060. If unmounted, 
the MVSEs would enter within HTSUS item number 8407.90.1010 because 
they generate under 4.476 kW of power. As stated above, these 
engines are produced in and exported from China.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This list of scope ruling applications is not an identification of 
scope inquiries that have been initiated. In accordance with 19 CFR 
351.225(d)(1), if Commerce has not rejected a scope ruling application 
nor initiated the scope inquiry within 30 days after the filing of the 
application, the application will be deemed accepted and a scope 
inquiry will be deemed initiated the following day--day 31.\4\ 
Commerce's practice generally dictates that where a deadline falls on a 
weekend, Federal holiday, or other non-business day, the appropriate 
deadline is the next business day.\5\ Accordingly, if the 30th day 
after the filing of the application falls on a non-business day, the 
next business day will be considered the ``updated'' 30th day, and if 
the application is not rejected or a scope inquiry initiated by or on 
that particular business day, the application will be deemed accepted 
and a scope inquiry will be deemed initiated on the next business day 
which follows the ``updated'' 30th day.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(d)(2), within 30 days 
after the filing of a scope ruling application, if Commerce 
determines that it intends to address the scope issue raised in the 
application in another segment of the proceeding (such as a 
circumvention inquiry under 19 CFR 351.226 or a covered merchandise 
inquiry under 19 CFR 351.227), it will notify the applicant that it 
will not initiate a scope inquiry, but will instead determine if the 
product is covered by the scope at issue in that alternative 
segment.
    \5\ See Notice of Clarification: Application of ``Next Business 
Day'' Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to 
the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).
    \6\ This structure maintains the intent of the applicable 
regulation, 19 CFR 351.225(d)(1), to allow day 30 and day 31 to be 
separate business days.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(m)(2), if there are companion AD 
and CVD orders covering the same merchandise from the same country of 
origin, the scope inquiry will be conducted on the record of the AD 
proceeding. Further, please note that pursuant to 19 CFR 351.225(m)(1), 
Commerce may either apply a scope ruling to all products from the same 
country with the same relevant physical characteristics, (including 
chemical, dimensional, and technical characteristics) as the product at 
issue, on a country-wide basis, regardless of the producer, exporter, 
or importer of those products, or on a company-specific basis.
    For further information on procedures for filing information with 
Commerce through ACCESS and participating in scope inquiries, please 
refer to the Filing Instructions section of the Scope Ruling 
Application Guide, at https://access.trade.gov/help/Scope_Ruling_Guidance.pdf. Interested parties, apart from the scope

must file an entry of appearance in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.103(d)(1) and 19 CFR 351.225(n)(4). Interested parties are advised 
to refer to the case segment in ACCESS as well as 19 CFR 351.225(f) for 
further information on the scope inquiry procedures, including the 
timelines for the submission of comments.
    Please note that this notice of scope ruling applications filed in 
AD and CVD proceedings may be published before any potential 
initiation, or after the initiation, of a given scope inquiry based on 
a scope ruling application identified in this notice. Therefore, please 
refer to the case segment on ACCESS to determine whether a scope ruling 
application has been accepted or rejected and whether a scope inquiry 
has been initiated.
    Interested parties who wish to be served scope ruling applications 
for a particular AD or CVD order may file a request to be included on 
the annual inquiry service list during the anniversary month of the 
publication of the AD or CVD order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(n) 
and Commerce's procedures.\7\
