A full description of the scope of the order is contained in the Decision Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by this notice.5 TKELLEY on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in this sunset review are addressed in the Decision Memorandum.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) preliminarily determines that diffusion-annealed, nickel-plated flat-rolled steel products (certain nickel-plated, flat-rolled steel) from Japan are being, or are likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value, as provided in section 733(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). The estimated weighted-average dumping margins are listed in the ‘‘Preliminary Determination’’ section of this notice. Interested parties are invited to comment on this preliminary determination. Pursuant to requests from interested parties, we are postponing for 60 days the final determination and extending provisional measures from a four-month period to not more than six months. Accordingly, we intend to make our final determination not later than 135 days after publication of this preliminary determination in the Federal Register. DATES: Effective Date: November 19, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Scope of the Investigation The diffusion-annealed, nickel-plated flat-rolled steel products included in this investigation are flat-rolled, coldreduced steel products, regardless of chemistry; whether or not in coils; either plated or coated with nickel or nickel-based alloys and subsequently annealed (i.e., ‘‘diffusion-annealed’’); whether or not painted, varnished or coated with plastics or other metallic or nonmetallic substances; and less than or equal to 2.0 mm in nominal thickness. For purposes of this investigation, ‘‘nickel-based alloys’’ include all nickel PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 69371 alloys with other metals in which nickel accounts for at least 80 percent of the alloy by volume. Imports of merchandise included in the scope of this investigation are classified primarily under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 7212.50.0000 and 7210.90.6000, but may also be classified under HTSUS subheadings 7210.70.6090, 7212.40.1000, 7212.40.5000, 7219.90.0020, 7219.90.0025, 7219.90.0060, 7219.90.0080, 7220.90.0010, 7220.90.0015, 7225.99.0090, or 7226.99.0180.

The revised deadline for the preliminary determination of this investigation is now November 8, 2013. Methodology The Department has conducted this investigation in accordance with section 731 of the Act. Export prices have been calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Normal value has been calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. Because one of the selected mandatory respondents, Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation, failed to respond to the Department’s questionnaire, we have preliminarily determined to apply adverse facts available to this respondent.
