For background on the proceedings in this Start Printed Page 55999investigation, please see the prior notices issued in the investigation including 84 FR 15028 (April 12, 2019), 84 FR 32248 (July 5, 2019), and 84 FR 54245 (October 9, 2019).
In the October 9th notice (84 FR 54245), the U.S. Trade Representative announced his determination to impose additional duties on products of certain member States of the European Union, effective October 18, 2019. For certain products defined in Annex A of October 9th notice, the determination included a decision to impose additional duties on only a subset of products within specified subheadings of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS).
To address technical limitations in the administration of the additional duties on a portion of products of a covered subheading, Paragraph 1 of Annex A of this Notice creates additional Chapter 99 numbers to identify the portion of the subheadings not covered by the October 9 action. Paragraph 2 of Annex A makes conforming changes to account for the creation of the additional Chapter 99 numbers. Customs and Border Protection will issue instructions on entry guidance and implementation.
Paragraph 3 of Annex A to this Notice removes one subheading, which had been included due to a clerical error, from the list of subheadings in Annex A of the October 9th Notice.
Paragraph 4 of Annex A to this Notice corrects typographical errors in U.S. Note 21 (m) to subchapter III of Chapter 99, as set out in Annex A of the October 9th Notice.
Paragraph 5 of the Annex A to this Notice corrects the article of description for 9903.89.05 as set out in Annex A of the October 9th Notice.
Annex B contains the list of tariff subheadings, with unofficial descriptions, covered by the October 9th action as amended by this Notice.
