|Solid Urea from Russia||
Case Number: A-821-801
Anniversary Month: July
The product covered by this investigation is urea, a high-nitrogen content fertilizer which is produced by reacting ammonia with carbon dioxide. The product is currently classified under the Tariff Schedules of the United States Annotated (TSUSA) item 480.3000.
Petitioner has requested that in order to avoid possible circumvention of an eventual antidumping duty order we include in the scope of the investigation nitrogen solutions currently classified under TSUSA item 480.6550, as well as solid urea mixed with other fertilizers as currently classified under TSUSA item 480.8030. Merchandise classified under these two items will be subject to the investigation only if the predominant component is urea.
The United States has developed a system of tariff classification based on the international harmonized system customs nomenclature. On January 1, 1989, the United States fully converted to the Harmonized Tariff Schedule ("HTS") as provided for in section 1201 et. seq. of the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988. All merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after that date is now classified solely according to the appropriate HTS item number(s).
Imports covered in this review (87-88) are shipments of solid urea. During this review such merchandise was classifiable under item number 480.3000 of the Tariff Schedules of the United States Annotated. This merchandise is currently classifiable under HTS item 0511.99.40. The HTS item number is provided for convenience and Customs purposes. The written description remains dispositive as the the scope of the product coverage.

On July 14, 1987, following an affirmative injury determination by the International Trade Commission, the Department issued an antidumping duty order on solid urea from the Soviet Union. Following the break–up of the Soviet Union, the antidumping duty order on solid urea from the Soviet Union was transferred to the individual members of the Commonwealth of Independent States(57 FR 28828).The substance of each new order did not change from the original order, and the estimated cash deposit rate established in the most recent administrative review remained in effect for each new independent state.
