AGENCY: Background Each year during the anniversary month of the publication of an antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended investigation, an interested party, as defined in section 771(9) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), may request, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213, that the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) conduct an administrative review of that antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended investigation. All deadlines for the submission of comments or actions by the Department discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting date. Respondent Selection In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for individual examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to requests made for the orders identified below, the Department intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) data for U.S. imports during the period of review. We intend to release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (‘‘APO’’) to all parties having an APO within five days of publication of the initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 21 days of publication of the initiation Federal Register notice. Therefore, we encourage all parties interested in commenting on respondent selection to submit their APO applications on the date of publication of the initiation notice, or as soon thereafter as possible. The Department invites comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within five days of placement of the CBP data on the record of the review. In the event the Department decides it is necessary to limit individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act: In general, the Department has found that determinations concerning whether particular companies should be ‘‘collapsed’’ (i.e., treated as a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates) require a substantial amount of detailed information and analysis, which often require follow-up questions and analysis. Accordingly, the Department will not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent selection phase of this review and will not collapse companies at the respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this antidumping proceeding (i.e., investigation, administrative review, new shipper review or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to this review, if the Department determined, or continued to treat, that company as collapsed with others, the Department will assume that such companies continue to operate in the same manner and will collapse them for respondent selection purposes. Otherwise, the Department will not collapse companies for purposes of respondent selection. Parties are requested to (a) identify which companies subject to review 60847 previously were collapsed, and (b) provide a citation to the proceeding in which they were collapsed. Further, if companies are requested to complete the Quantity and Value Questionnaire for purposes of respondent selection, in general each company must report volume and value data separately for itself. Parties should not include data for any other party, even if they believe they should be treated as a single entity with that other party. If a company was collapsed with another company or companies in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding where the Department considered collapsing that entity, complete quantity and value data for that collapsed entity must be submitted. Deadline for Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), a party that has requested a review may withdraw that request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The regulation provides that the Department may extend this time if it is reasonable to do so. In order to provide parties additional certainty with respect to when the Department will exercise its discretion to extend this 90-day deadline, interested parties are advised that, with regard to reviews requested on the basis of anniversary months on or after October 2013, the Department does not intend to extend the 90-day deadline unless the requestor demonstrates that an extraordinary circumstance has prevented it from submitting a timely withdrawal request. Determinations by the Department to extend the 90-day deadline will be made on a case-by-case basis. The Department is providing this notice on its Web site, as well as in its ‘‘Opportunity to Request Administrative Review’’ notices, so that interested parties will be aware of the manner in which the Department intends to exercise its discretion in the future. Opportunity TO Request A Review: Not later than the last day of October 2013,1 interested parties may request administrative review of the following orders, findings, or suspended investigations, with anniversary dates in October for the following periods: tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Period of review Antidumping duty proceedings AUSTRALIA: Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide A–602–806 ........................................................................................................... 1 Or the next business day, if the deadline falls on a weekend, federal holiday or any other day when the Department is closed.

Silicomanganese From India, Kazakhstan, and Venezuela: 
Continuation of Antidumping Duty Orders

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

SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of 
Commerce (the ``Department'') and the International Trade Commission 
(the ``ITC'') that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on 
silicomanganese from India, Kazakhstan, and Venezuela would likely lead 
to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an 
industry in the United States, the Department is publishing a notice of 
continuation of the antidumping duty order.

DATES: Effective Date: October 2, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sean Carey, AD/CVD Operations, Office

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On October 1, 2012, the Department initiated a sunset review of the 
antidumping duty orders on silicomanganese from India, Kazakhstan, and 
Venezuela, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the ``Act'').\1\ As a result of its review, the Department 
determined that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on 
silicomanganese from India, Kazakhstan, and Venezuela would likely lead 
to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and, therefore, notified the 
ITC of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail should the order 
be revoked.\2\ On September 24, 2013, the ITC published its 
determination, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation 
of the antidumping duty orders on silicomanganese from India, 
Kazakhstan, and Venezuela would likely lead to a continuation or 
recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States 
within a reasonably foreseeable time.\3\

Scope of the Orders

    For purposes of these orders, the products covered are all forms, 
sizes and compositions of silicomanganese, except low-carbon 
silicomanganese, including silicomanganese briquettes, fines and slag. 
Silicomanganese is a ferroalloy composed principally of manganese, 
silicon and iron, and normally contains much smaller proportions of 
minor elements, such as carbon, phosphorous and sulfur. Silicomanganese 
is sometimes referred to as ferrosilicon manganese. Silicomanganese is 
used primarily in steel production as a source of both silicon and 
manganese. Silicomanganese generally contains by weight not less than 4 
percent iron, more than 30 percent manganese, more than 8 percent 
silicon and not more than 3 percent phosphorous. Silicomanganese is 
properly classifiable under subheading 7202.30.0000 of the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Some silicomanganese may 
also be classified under HTSUS subheading 7202.99.5040.
    The low-carbon silicomanganese excluded from this scope is a 
ferroalloy with the following chemical specifications: Minimum 55 
percent manganese, minimum 27 percent silicon, minimum 4 percent iron, 
maximum 0.10 percent phosphorus, maximum 0.10 percent carbon and 
maximum 0.05 percent sulfur. Low-carbon silicomanganese is used in the

    This scope covers all silicomanganese, regardless of its tariff 
classification. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for 
convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope 
remains dispositive.

Continuation of the Order

    As a result of the determinations by the Department and the ITC 
that revocation of the antidumping duty orders would likely lead to a 
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 orders the continuation of the antidumping 
orders on silicomanganese from India, Kazakhstan, and Venezuela. U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect antidumping duty 
cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all 
imports of subject merchandise. The effective date of the continuation 
of the order will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of 
this notice of continuation. Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act, 
the Department intends to initiate the next five-year review of the 
order not later than 30 days prior to the fifth anniversary of the 
effective date of continuation.
