AGENCY: Background On April 2, 2013, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated the second sunset reviews of the antidumping duty (AD) orders on polyethylene terephthalate film (PET Film) from India and Taiwan, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 78 FR 19647 (April 2, 2013). Within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i), the Department received notices of intent to participate, in both sunset reviews, on behalf of DuPont Teijin Films, Mitsubishi Polyester Film, Inc., and SKC, Inc. (collectively, domestic interested parties). Each claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as a producer of domestic like product. The Department received timely substantive responses from these domestic interested parties. On April 22, 2013, after analyzing the substantive responses of interested parties, consistent with 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(A), the Department determined to conduct expedited sunset reviews of these AD orders on the basis that no respondent interested party submitted a substantive response in either review.

In that notice, the Department announced the modification of its methodology regarding the calculation of the weighted-average dumping margins in certain segments of antidumping duty proceedings and stated that it would apply to all sunset reviews for which preliminary or final results were due more than 60 days after publication (i.e., April 16, 2012). On July 22, 2013, the Department reconsidered its determination to conduct expedited sunset reviews of these orders and determined to conduct full sunset reviews of the AD orders on PET Film from India and Taiwan.1 The preliminary results of these full sunset reviews are currently due July 22, 2013 2 and the final results are due November 27, 2013. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Extension Of Time Limits In accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B) of the Act, the Department may extend the period of time for making its determination by not more than 90 days, if it determines that the sunset review is extraordinarily complicated. We determine that these AD sunset reviews are extraordinarily complicated, pursuant to section 751(c)(5)(C)(i) and (ii) of the Act, because of the need to consider the effect of the Final Modification for Reviews on the determinations the Department must make with regard to both the likelihood of dumping to continue or recur and the magnitude of the margin of dumping to prevail if the orders were revoked. See Adequacy Redetermination Memorandum. Accordingly, the Department is extending the deadlines for both the preliminary and final results of these full sunset reviews by 90 days.

Pursuant to subsection (o) of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (5 U.S.C. 552a), the HHS and DMDC have concluded an agreement to conduct a computer matching program between agencies. The purpose of the computer matching program is to exchange personal data for purposes of identifying individuals who are receiving Federal compensation or pension payments and also are receiving payments pursuant to Federal benefit programs being administered by the States. The parties to this agreement have determined that a computer matching program is the most efficient, expeditious, and effective means of obtaining and processing the information needed by the SPAAs to identify individuals who may be ineligible for public assistance benefits. The principal alternative to using a computer matching program for identifying such individuals would be to conduct a manual comparison of all Federal personnel records with SPAA records of those individuals currently receiving public assistance under a Federal benefit program being administered by the State. Conducting a manual match, however, would clearly impose a considerable administrative burden, constitute a greater intrusion of the individual’s privacy, and would result in additional delay in determining eligibility and, if applicable, the eventual recovery of any outstanding debts.

of Time Limits for Preliminary and Final Results of the Second 
Antidumping Duty Sunset Reviews

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

DATES: Effective Date: July 29, 2013.

Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., 
Washington, DC 20230.

Background

    On April 2, 2013, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
initiated the second sunset reviews of the antidumping duty (AD) orders 
on polyethylene terephthalate film (PET Film) from India and Taiwan, 
pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act). See Initiation of Five-Year (``Sunset'') Review, 78 FR 19647 
(April 2, 2013). Within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(i), the Department received notices of intent to 
participate, in both sunset reviews, on behalf of DuPont Teijin Films, 
Mitsubishi Polyester Film, Inc., and SKC, Inc. (collectively, domestic 
interested parties). Each claimed interested party status under section 
771(9)(C) of the Act, as a producer of domestic like product. The 
Department received timely substantive responses from these domestic 
interested parties. On April 22, 2013, after analyzing the substantive 
responses of interested parties, consistent with 19 CFR 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(A), the Department determined to conduct expedited 
sunset reviews of these AD orders on the basis that no respondent 
interested party submitted a substantive response in either review. See 
Letter to Catherine DeFilippo, Director, Office of Investigations, 
International Trade Commission, regarding ``Sunset Reviews Initiated on 
April 2, 2013,'' (April 22, 2013).

[[Page 45513]]

    On February 14, 2012, the Department published in the Federal 
Register a notice entitled Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the 
Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain 
Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 
14, 2012) (Final Modification for Reviews). In that notice, the 
Department announced the modification of its methodology regarding the 
calculation of the weighted-average dumping margins in certain segments 
of antidumping duty proceedings and stated that it would apply to all 
sunset reviews for which preliminary or final results were due more 
than 60 days after publication (i.e., April 16, 2012). On July 22, 
2013, the Department reconsidered its determination to conduct 
expedited sunset reviews of these orders and determined to conduct full 
sunset reviews of the AD orders on PET Film from India and Taiwan.\1\ 
The preliminary results of these full sunset reviews are currently due 
July 22, 2013 \2\ and the final results are due November 27, 2013.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Memorandum to Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant 
Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, from 
Mark Hoadley, Acting Director, Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, Office 6, regarding ``Sunset Reviews of the Antidumping 
Duty Orders on Polyethylene Terephthalate Film from India and 
Taiwan: Adequacy Redetermination Memorandum,'' (July 22, 2013).
    \2\ As the actual due date of July 20, 2013 falls on a Saturday, 
the preliminary results are due the next business day, i.e., July 
22, 2013. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ``Next 
Business Day'' Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines 
Pursuant to Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 
2005).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Extension Of Time Limits

    In accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B) of the Act, the Department 
may extend the period of time for making its determination by not more 
than 90 days, if it determines that the sunset review is 
extraordinarily complicated. We determine that these AD sunset reviews 
are extraordinarily complicated, pursuant to section 751(c)(5)(C)(i) 
and (ii) of the Act, because of the need to consider the effect of the 
Final Modification for Reviews on the determinations the Department 
must make with regard to both the likelihood of dumping to continue or 
recur and the magnitude of the margin of dumping to prevail if the 
orders were revoked. See Adequacy Redetermination Memorandum.
    Accordingly, the Department is extending the deadlines for both the 
preliminary and final results of these full sunset reviews by 90 days. 
As a result, the Department intends to issue the preliminary results of 
these full sunset reviews of the AD orders on PET Film from India and 
Taiwan no later than October 18, 2013, and the final results of the 
reviews no later than February 25, 2014.
    This notice is issued in accordance with sections 751(c)(5)(B) and 
(C) of the Act.

     Dated: July 22, 2013.
