Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: As a result of the determination by the Department of Commerce 
(``the Department'') and the International Trade Commission (``ITC'') 
that termination of the suspended investigation on lemon juice from 
Argentina would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, 
and material injury to an industry in the United States, the Department 
is publishing notice of the continuation of this suspended antidumping 
duty investigation.

DATES: Effective Date: August 7, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Anne D'Alauro or Judith Wey Rudman, 
Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW.,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 1, 2012, the Department initiated, and the ITC 
instituted, a sunset review of the suspended antidumping duty 
investigation on lemon juice from Argentina (``suspended 
investigation''), pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, 
as amended (``the Act''). See Initiation of Five-year (``Sunset'') 
Review and Correction, 77 FR 45589 (August 1, 2012) and [Investigation 
Nos. 731-TA-1105-1106 (Review)] Lemon Juice from Argentina and Mexico, 
77 FR 45653 (August 1, 2012). As a result of its review, the Department 
determined that termination of the suspended investigation on lemon 
juice from Argentina would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence 
of dumping and notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins likely 
to prevail, should the suspended investigation be terminated. See Lemon 
Juice from Argentina; Final Results of the Expedited First Sunset 
Review of the Suspended Antidumping Duty Investigation, 77 FR 73021 
(December 7, 2012).
    On July 10, 2013, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, the ITC 
determined that termination of the suspended investigation on lemon 
juice from Argentina would be likely to lead to continuation or 
recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States 
within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Lemon Juice from Argentina, 
78 FR 46610 (August 1, 2013).
    Therefore, pursuant to section 351.218(f)(4) of the Department's 
regulations, the Department is publishing this notice of the 
continuation of the suspended investigation on lemon juice from 
Argentina.

Scope

    The merchandise covered by the suspended investigation includes 
certain lemon juice for further manufacture, with or without addition 
of preservatives, sugar, or other sweeteners, regardless of the GPL 
(grams per liter of citric acid) level of concentration, brix level, 
brix/acid ratio, pulp content, clarity, grade, horticulture method 
(e.g., organic or not), processed form (e.g., frozen or not-from-
concentrate), FDA standard of identity, the size of the container in 
which packed, or the method of packing.
    Excluded from the scope are: (1) Lemon juice at any level of 
concentration packed in retail-sized containers ready for sale to 
consumers, typically at a level of concentration of 48 GPL; and (2) 
beverage products such as lemonade that typically contain 20% or less 
lemon juice as an ingredient.
    Lemon juice is classifiable under subheadings 2009.39.6020, 
2009.31.6020, 2009.31.4000, 2009.31.6040, and 2009.39.6040 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). While HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our 
written description of the scope of the suspended investigation is 
dispositive.

Continuation of the Suspended Investigation

    As a result of the respective determinations by the Department and 
the ITC that termination of the suspended investigation on lemon juice 
from Argentina would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of 
dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, 
pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act, the Department hereby gives 
notice of the continuation of the suspended investigation on lemon 
juice from Argentina. The effective date of continuation will be the 
date of publication in the Federal Register of this Continuation 
Notice. Because the Department is continuing the suspended 
investigation, the suspension agreement will also continue to remain in 
effect. See Suspension of Antidumping Duty Investigation: Lemon Juice 
From Argentina, 72 FR 53991 (September 21, 2007). Pursuant to sections 
751(c)(2) of the Act, the Department intends to initiate the next five-
year sunset review of the suspended investigation on lemon juice from 
Argentina not later than 30 days prior to the fifth anniversary of the 
effective date of continuation.
    This five-year (sunset) review and notice are in accordance with 
section 751(c) of the Act and published pursuant to section 777(i)(1) 
of the Act.
