Agency Notice
SUMMARY: On May 22, 2018, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (the CAFC) reversed and remanded the Court of International Trade’s (CIT) earlier decision regarding the Department of Commerce’s (Commerce) scope ruling under the antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) orders on aluminum extrusions from the People’s Republic of China (China) involving Meridian Products, LLC’s (Meridian’s) Type B door handles. The CAFC instructed the CIT to vacate Commerce’s initial remand redetermination that the CIT had previously sustained, reinstate Commerce’s original scope ruling, and remand for further proceedings consistent with its opinion. In the original scope ruling, Commerce found that Meridian’s Type B door handles were covered by the scope of the AD and CVD orders. In Commerce’s redetermination upon remand from the CAFC, Commerce found that the extruded aluminum component of each Type B handle is within the scope of the AD and CVD orders while the other components (plastic end caps and screws) are not. On April 6, 2020, the CIT sustained Commerce’s remand redetermination. Accordingly, Commerce is issuing a second amended final scope ruling. DATES: Applicable May 26, 2020.
