Product: Diamond sawblades and parts thereof, classified under HTSUS subheadings 6804.21.0000, 8202.39.0000 and 8206.00.0000.
Nature of Notice: Final anti-circumvention inquiry determination in AD investigation A-570-900, effective 16 July 2019.
Summary: The DOC has determined that diamond sawblades made with mainland Chinese cores and segments joined in Thailand by Diamond Tools Technology (Thailand) Co. Ltd. and subsequently exported to the United States are circumventing the AD duty order on subject merchandise from the mainland. As a result, the DOC will direct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation of any entries of subject merchandise.

However, AD cash deposits will still be required for these products because Diamond Tools Technology ostensibly is not currently able to identify them from in-scope merchandise.

It is also possible that, as technology evolves and new products are created, these new products may fall outside the scope of the order.
