these Sunset Reviews must be filed in accordance with the Department's 
regulations regarding format, translation, and service of documents. 
These rules can be found at 19 CFR 351.303.
    This notice serves as a reminder that any party submitting factual 
information in an AD/CVD proceeding must certify to the accuracy and 
completeness of that information. See section 782(b) of the Act. 
Parties are hereby reminded that revised certification requirements are 
in effect for company/government officials as well as their 
representatives in all AD/CVD investigations or proceedings initiated 
on or after March 14, 2011. See Certification of Factual Information to 
Import Administration During Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Proceedings: Interim Final Rule, 76 FR 7491 (February 10, 2011)

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.103(d), the Department will maintain and 
make available a service list for these proceedings. To facilitate the 
timely preparation of the service list(s), it is requested that those 
seeking recognition as interested parties to a proceeding contact the 
Department in writing within 10 days of the publication of the Notice

    Because deadlines in Sunset Reviews can be very short, we urge 
interested parties to apply for access to proprietary information under 
administrative protective order (``APO'') immediately following

a Sunset Review must respond not later than 15 days after the date of

filing a notice of intent to participate. The required contents of the 
notice of intent to participate are set forth at 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(ii). In accordance with the Department's regulations, if 
we do not receive a notice of intent to participate from at least one 
domestic interested party by the 15-day deadline, the Department will 
automatically revoke the order without further review.

from a domestic interested party, the Department's regulations provide 
that all parties wishing to participate in the Sunset Review must file 
complete substantive responses not later than 30 days after the date of 
publication in the Federal Register of this notice of initiation. The 
required contents of a substantive response, on an order-specific 
basis, are set forth at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3). Note that certain 
information requirements differ for respondent and domestic parties. 
Also, note that the Department's information requirements are distinct 
from the Commission's information requirements. Please consult the 
Department's regulations for information regarding the Department's 
conduct of Sunset Reviews.\1\ Please consult the Department's

general information concerning antidumping and countervailing duty 
proceedings at the Department.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ In comments made on the interim final sunset regulations, a 
number of parties stated that the proposed five-day period for 
rebuttals to substantive responses to a notice of initiation was 
insufficient. This requirement was retained in the final sunset 
regulations at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(4). As provided in 19 CFR 
351.302(b), however, the Department will consider individual 
requests to extend that five-day deadline based upon a showing of 
good cause.
