The formats for the revised certifications are provided at the end of the Final Rule. The Department intends to reject factual submissions if the submitting party does not comply with the revised certification requirements. On April 10, 2013, the Department published Definition of Factual Information and Time Limits for Submission of Factual Information: Final Rule, 78 FR 21246 (April 10, 2013), which modified two regulations related to antidumping and countervailing duty proceedings: the definition of factual information (19 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60253 Dana Mermelstein (202) 482–1391.

The final rule identifies five categories of factual information in 19 CFR 351.102(b)(21), which are summarized as follows: (i) evidence submitted in response to questionnaires; (ii) evidence submitted in support of allegations; (iii) publicly available information to value factors under 19 CFR 351.408(c) or to measure the adequacy of remuneration under 19 CFR 351.511(a)(2); (iv) evidence placed on the record by the Department; and (v) evidence other than factual information described in (i)–(iv). The final rule requires any party, when submitting factual information, to specify under which subsection of 19 CFR 351.102(b)(21) the information is being submitted and, if the information is submitted to rebut, clarify, or correct factual information already on the record, to provide an explanation identifying the information already on the record that the factual information seeks to rebut, clarify, or correct. The final rule also modified 19 CFR 351.301 so that, rather than providing general E:\FR\FM\01OCN1.SGM 01OCN1 60254 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 190 / Tuesday, October 1, 2013 / Notices emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES time limits, there are specific time limits based on the type of factual information being submitted.

Please review the final rule, available at http:// ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/2013/1304frn/201308227.txt, prior to submitting factual information in this segment. To the extent that other regulations govern the submission of factual information in a segment (such as 19 CFR 351.218), these time limits will continue to be applied.

Filing Information

    As a courtesy, we are making information related to sunset 
proceedings, including copies of the pertinent statute and Department's 
regulations, the Department's schedule for Sunset Reviews, a listing of 
past revocations and continuations, and current service lists, 
available to the public on the Department's Web site at the following 
address: ``http://ia.ita.doc.gov/sunset/.'' All submissions in these 
Sunset Reviews must be filed in accordance with the Department's 
regulations regarding format, translation, and service of documents. 
These rules, including electronic filing requirements via Import 
Administration's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized 
Electronic Service System (``IA ACCESS''), can be found at 19 CFR 
351.303. See also Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order 
Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011).
    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 August 16, 2013. See Certification of Factual Information 
To Import Administration During Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Proceedings, 78 FR 42678 (July 17, 2013) (``Final Rule'') (amending 19 
CFR 351.303(g)). The formats for the revised certifications are 
provided at the end of the Final Rule. The Department intends to reject 
factual submissions if the submitting party does not comply with the 
revised certification requirements.
    On April 10, 2013, the Department published Definition of Factual 
Information and Time Limits for Submission of Factual Information: 
Final Rule, 78 FR 21246 (April 10, 2013), which modified two 
regulations related to antidumping and countervailing duty proceedings: 
the definition of factual information (19 CFR 351.102(b)(21)), and the 
time limits for the submission of factual information (19 CFR 351.301). 
The final rule identifies five categories of factual information in 19 
CFR 351.102(b)(21), which are summarized as follows: (i) evidence 
submitted in response to questionnaires; (ii) evidence submitted in 
support of allegations; (iii) publicly available information to value 
factors under 19 CFR 351.408(c) or to measure the adequacy of 
remuneration under 19 CFR 351.511(a)(2); (iv) evidence placed on the 
record by the Department; and (v) evidence other than factual 
information described in (i)-(iv). The final rule requires any party, 
when submitting factual information, to specify under which subsection 
of 19 CFR 351.102(b)(21) the information is being submitted and, if the 
information is submitted to rebut, clarify, or correct factual 
information already on the record, to provide an explanation 
identifying the information already on the record that the factual 
information seeks to rebut, clarify, or correct. The final rule also 
modified 19 CFR 351.301 so that, rather than providing general

[[Page 60254]]

time limits, there are specific time limits based on the type of 
factual information being submitted. These modifications are effective 
for all segments initiated on or after May 10, 2013. Please review the 
final rule, available at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/2013/1304frn/2013-08227.txt, prior to submitting factual information in this segment. To 
the extent that other regulations govern the submission of factual 
information in a segment (such as 19 CFR 351.218), these time limits 
will continue to be applied.
    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 
of Initiation.
    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 
publication in the Federal Register of this notice of initiation by 
filing a notice of intent to participate. The Department's regulations 
on submission of proprietary information and eligibility to receive 
access to business proprietary information under APO can be found at 19 
CFR 351.304-306.

Information Required From Interested Parties

    Domestic interested parties, as defined in section 771(9)(C), (D), 
(E), (F), and (G) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.102(b), wishing to 
participate in a Sunset Review must respond not later than 15 days 
after the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of 
initiation by 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. See 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(iii).
    If we receive an order-specific notice of intent to participate 
from a domestic interested party, the Department's regulations provide 
that all parties wishing to participate in a 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 
regulations at 19 CFR Part 351 for definitions of terms and for other 
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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This notice of initiation is being published in accordance with 
section 751(c) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(c).
