(Teh Fong Min).2 On September 25, 2013, Clariant withdrew its request for an administrative review of Teh Fong Min.3 with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). Rescission of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, ‘‘in whole or in part, if a party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review.’’ Clariant withdrew its request for review within the 90-day time limit. Further, because we rejected Teh Fong Min’s June 3, 2013 request for the Department to conduct an administrative review, as untimely,4 and received no other requests for review of Teh Fong Min or with respect to other companies subject to the order, we are rescinding the administrative review of the order in full.

Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3).

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) has received requests to conduct administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with October anniversary dates. In accordance with the Department’s regulations, we are initiating those administrative reviews. DATES: Effective Date: December 3, 2013. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brenda E. Waters, Office of AD/CVD Operations, Customs Liaison Unit, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230, telephone: (202) 482–4735. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background The Department has received timely requests, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with October anniversary dates. All deadlines for the submission of various types of information, certifications, or comments or actions by the Department discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting time. Notice of No Sales If a producer or exporter named in this notice of initiation had no exports, sales, or entries during the period of review (‘‘POR’’), it must notify the Department within 60 days of PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 publication of this notice in the Federal Register. All submissions must be filed electronically at http:// iaaccess.trade.gov in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011). Such submissions are subject to verification in accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’). Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(1)(i), a copy must be served on every party on the Department’s service list. Respondent Selection In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for individual examination for administrative reviews, the Department intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) data for U.S. imports during the POR. We intend to release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (‘‘APO’’) to all parties having an APO within seven days of publication of this initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 21 days of publication of this Federal Register notice. 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 applicable 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 E:\FR\FM\03DEN1.SGM 03DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 232 / Tuesday, December 3, 2013 / Notices 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 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 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. Separate Rates In proceedings involving non-market economy (‘‘NME’’) countries, the Department begins with a rebuttable presumption that all companies within the country are subject to government control and, thus, should be assigned a single antidumping duty deposit rate. It is the Department’s policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to an administrative review in an NME country this single rate unless an exporter can demonstrate that it is sufficiently independent so as to be entitled to a separate rate. To establish whether a firm is sufficiently independent from government control of its export activities to be entitled to a separate rate, the Department analyzes each entity exporting the subject merchandise under a test arising from the Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Sparklers From the People’s Republic of China, 56 FR 20588 (May 6, 1991), as amplified by Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Silicon Carbide From the People’s Republic of China, 59 FR 22585 (May 2, 1994). In accordance with the separate rates criteria, the Department assigns separate rates to companies in NME cases only if respondents can demonstrate the absence of both de jure and de facto government control over export activities. All firms listed below that wish to qualify for separate rate status in the administrative reviews involving NME countries must complete, as appropriate, either a separate rate application or certification, as described below. For these administrative reviews, in order to demonstrate separate rate eligibility, the Department requires entities for whom a review was requested, that were assigned a separate rate in the most recent segment of this proceeding in which they participated, to certify that they continue to meet the criteria for obtaining a separate rate. The Separate Rate Certification form will be available on the Department’s Web site at http://www.trade.gov/enforcement on the date of publication of this Federal Register notice. In responding to the certification, please follow the ‘‘Instructions for Filing the Certification’’ in the Separate Rate Certification. Separate Rate Certifications are due to the Department no later than 60 calendar days after publication of this Federal Register notice. The deadline and requirement for submitting a Certification applies 72631 equally to NME-owned firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers who purchase and export subject merchandise to the United States. Entities that currently do not have a separate rate from a completed segment of the proceeding 1 should timely file a Separate Rate Application to demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate in this proceeding. In addition, companies that received a separate rate in a completed segment of the proceeding that have subsequently made changes, including, but not limited to, changes to corporate structure, acquisitions of new companies or facilities, or changes to their official company name,2 should timely file a Separate Rate Application to demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate in this proceeding. The Separate Rate Status Application will be available on the Department’s Web site at http://trade.gov/enforcement/ on the date of publication of this Federal Register notice. In responding to the Separate Rate Status Application, refer to the instructions contained in the application. Separate Rate Status Applications are due to the Department no later than 60 calendar days of publication of this Federal Register notice. The deadline and requirement for submitting a Separate Rate Status Application applies equally to NMEowned firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers that purchase and export subject merchandise to the United States. For exporters and producers who submit a separate-rate status application or certification and subsequently are selected as mandatory respondents, these exporters and producers will no longer be eligible for separate rate status unless they respond to all parts of the questionnaire as mandatory respondents. Initiation of Reviews In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we are initiating administrative reviews of the following antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings. We intend to issue the final results of these reviews not later than October 31, 2014. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Period to be reviewed Antidumping duty proceedings MEXICO: Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod A–201–830 ................................................................................................ 1 Such entities include entities that have not participated in the proceeding, entities that were preliminarily granted a separate rate in any currently incomplete segment of the proceeding (e.g., an ongoing administrative review, new VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:36 Dec 02, 2013 Jkt 232001 shipper review, etc.) and entities that lost their separate rate in the most recently completed segment of the proceeding in which they participated.

United States, 291 F.3d 806 (Fed Cir. 2002), as appropriate, whether antidumping duties have been absorbed by an exporter or producer subject to the VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:36 Dec 02, 2013 Jkt 232001 review if the subject merchandise is sold in the United States through an importer that is affiliated with such exporter or producer. The request must include the name(s) of the exporter or producer for which the inquiry is requested. 3 If one of the above-named companies does not qualify for a separate rate, all other exporters of Helical Spring Lock Washers from the PRC who have not qualified for a separate rate are deemed to be covered by this review as part of the single PRC entity of which the named exporters are a part. 4 If one of the above-named companies does not qualify for a separate rate, all other exporters of Steel Wire Garment Hangers from the PRC who have not qualified for a separate rate are deemed to be covered by this review as part of the single PRC entity of which the named exporters are a part. 5 The companies listed above were misspelled in the initiation notice that published on November 8, PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10/1/12–9/30/13 10/1/12–9/30/13 1/1/12—12/31/12 For the first administrative review of any order, there will be no assessment of antidumping or countervailing duties on entries of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption during the relevant provisional-measures ‘‘gap’’ period, of the order, if such a gap period is applicable to the POR. Interested parties must submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective orders in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. On January 22, 2008, the Department published Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Documents Submission Procedures; APO Procedures, 73 FR 3634 (January 2013 (78 FR 67104).

Those procedures apply to administrative reviews included in this notice of initiation. Parties wishing to participate in any of these administrative reviews should ensure that the meet the requirements of these procedures (e.g., the filing of separate letters of appearance as discussed at 19 CFR 351.103(d)). Revised Factual Information 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 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:// enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2013/ 1304frn/2013-08227.txt, prior to submitting factual information in this segment. Any party submitting factual information in an antidumping duty or countervailing duty 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. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:36 Dec 02, 2013 Jkt 232001 Ongoing segments of any antidumping duty or countervailing duty proceedings initiated on or after March 14, 2011 should use the formats for the revised certifications provided at the end of the Interim Final Rule. See Certification of Factual Information to Import Administration During Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Interim Final Rule, 76 FR 7491 (February 10, 2011) (‘‘Interim Final Rule’’), amending 19 CFR 351.303(g)(1) and (2); Certification of Factual Information to Import Administration during Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Supplemental Interim Final Rule, 76 FR 54697 (September 2, 2011). All segments of any antidumping duty or countervailing duty proceedings initiated on or after August 16, 2013, should use the formats for the revised certifications provided at the end of the Final Rule.

The Department intends to reject factual submissions in any proceeding segments if the submitting party does not comply with applicable revised certification requirements. Revised Extension of Time Limits Regulation On September 20, 2013, the Department modified its regulation concerning the extension of time limits for submissions in antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) proceedings: Final Rule, 78 FR 57790 (September 20, 2013). The modification clarifies that parties may request an extension of time limits before a time limit established under Part 351 expires, or as otherwise specified by the Secretary. In general, an extension request will be considered untimely if it is filed after the time limit established under Part 351 expires. For submissions which are due from multiple parties simultaneously, an extension request will be considered untimely if it is filed after 10:00 a.m. on the due date. Examples include, but are not limited to: (1) Case and rebuttal briefs, filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309; (2) factual information to value factors under 19 CFR 351.408(c), or to measure the adequacy of remuneration under 19 CFR 351.511(a)(2), filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3) and rebuttal, clarification and correction filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3)(iv); (3) comments concerning the selection of a surrogate PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 72633 country and surrogate values and rebuttal; (4) comments concerning U.S. Customs and Border Protection data; and (5) quantity and value questionnaires. Under certain circumstances, the Department may elect to specify a different time limit by which extension requests will be considered untimely for submissions which are due from multiple parties simultaneously. In such a case, the Department will inform parties in the letter or memorandum setting forth the deadline (including a specified time) by which extension requests must be filed to be considered timely. This modification also requires that an extension request must be made in a separate, stand-alone submission, and clarifies the circumstances under which the Department will grant untimelyfiled requests for the extension of time limits. These modifications are effective for all segments initiated on or after October 21, 2013. Please review the final rule, available at http:// www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-09-20/ html/2013-22853.htm, prior to submitting factual information in these segments.

Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, formerly Import Administration, 
International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') has received 
requests to conduct administrative reviews of various antidumping and 
countervailing duty orders and findings with October anniversary dates. 
In accordance with the Department's regulations, we are initiating 
those administrative reviews.

DATES: Effective Date: December 3, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brenda E. Waters, Office of AD/CVD 
Operations, Customs Liaison Unit, Enforcement and Compliance,

Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230, telephone: 
(202) 482-4735.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The Department has received timely requests, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.213(b), for administrative reviews of various antidumping and 
countervailing duty orders and findings with October anniversary dates.
    All deadlines for the submission of various types of information, 
certifications, or comments or actions by the Department discussed 
below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting 
time.

Notice of No Sales

    If a producer or exporter named in this notice of initiation had no 
exports, sales, or entries during the period of review (``POR''), it 
must notify the Department within 60 days of publication of this notice 
in the Federal Register. All submissions must be filed electronically 
at http://iaaccess.trade.gov in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303. See 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing 
Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 
(July 6, 2011). Such submissions are subject to verification in 
accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``Act''). Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(1)(i), a copy 
must be served on every party on the Department's service list.

Respondent Selection

    In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for 
individual examination for administrative reviews, the Department 
intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP'') data for U.S. imports during the POR. We intend to 
release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (``APO'') to 
all parties having an APO within seven days of publication of this 
initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent 
selection within 21 days of publication of this Federal Register 
notice. 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 applicable 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

[[Page 72631]]

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 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 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.

Separate Rates

    In proceedings involving non-market economy (``NME'') countries, 
the Department begins with a rebuttable presumption that all companies 
within the country are subject to government control and, thus, should 
be assigned a single antidumping duty deposit rate. It is the 
Department's policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to 
an administrative review in an NME country this single rate unless an 
exporter can demonstrate that it is sufficiently independent so as to 
be entitled to a separate rate.
    To establish whether a firm is sufficiently independent from 
government control of its export activities to be entitled to a 
separate rate, the Department analyzes each entity exporting the 
subject merchandise under a test arising from the Final Determination 
of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Sparklers From the People's Republic 
of China, 56 FR 20588 (May 6, 1991), as amplified by Final 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Silicon Carbide From 
the People's Republic of China, 59 FR 22585 (May 2, 1994). In 
accordance with the separate rates criteria, the Department assigns 
separate rates to companies in NME cases only if respondents can 
demonstrate the absence of both de jure and de facto government control 
over export activities.
    All firms listed below that wish to qualify for separate rate 
status in the administrative reviews involving NME countries must 
complete, as appropriate, either a separate rate application or 
certification, as described below. For these administrative reviews, in 
order to demonstrate separate rate eligibility, the Department requires 
entities for whom a review was requested, that were assigned a separate 
rate in the most recent segment of this proceeding in which they 
participated, to certify that they continue to meet the criteria for 
obtaining a separate rate. The Separate Rate Certification form will be 
available on the Department's Web site at http://www.trade.gov/enforcement on the date of publication of this Federal Register notice. 
In responding to the certification, please follow the ``Instructions 
for Filing the Certification'' in the Separate Rate Certification. 
Separate Rate Certifications are due to the Department no later than 60 
calendar days after publication of this Federal Register notice. The 
deadline and requirement for submitting a Certification applies equally 
to NME-owned firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers who 
purchase and export subject merchandise to the United States.
    Entities that currently do not have a separate rate from a 
completed segment of the proceeding \1\ should timely file a Separate 
Rate Application to demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate in this 
proceeding. In addition, companies that received a separate rate in a 
completed segment of the proceeding that have subsequently made 
changes, including, but not limited to, changes to corporate structure, 
acquisitions of new companies or facilities, or changes to their 
official company name,\2\ should timely file a Separate Rate 
Application to demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate in this 
proceeding. The Separate Rate Status Application will be available on 
the Department's Web site at http://trade.gov/enforcement/ on the date 
of publication of this Federal Register notice. In responding to the 
Separate Rate Status Application, refer to the instructions contained 
in the application. Separate Rate Status Applications are due to the 
Department no later than 60 calendar days of publication of this 
Federal Register notice. The deadline and requirement for submitting a 
Separate Rate Status Application applies equally to NME-owned firms, 
wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers that purchase and 
export subject merchandise to the United States.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Such entities include entities that have not participated in 
the proceeding, entities that were preliminarily granted a separate 
rate in any currently incomplete segment of the proceeding (e.g., an 
ongoing administrative review, new shipper review, etc.) and 
entities that lost their separate rate in the most recently 
completed segment of the proceeding in which they participated.
    \2\ Only changes to the official company name, rather than trade 
names, need to be addressed via a Separate Rate Application. 
Information regarding new trade names may be submitted via a 
Separate Rate Certification.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For exporters and producers who submit a separate-rate status 
application or certification and subsequently are selected as mandatory 
respondents, these exporters and producers will no longer be eligible 
for separate rate status unless they respond to all parts of the 
questionnaire as mandatory respondents.

Suspension Agreements:

    None
    During any administrative review covering all or part of a period 
falling between the first and second or third and fourth anniversary of 
the publication of an antidumping duty order under 19 CFR 351.211 or a 
determination under 19 CFR 351.218(f)(4) to continue an order or 
suspended investigation (after sunset review), the Secretary, if 
requested by a domestic interested party within 30 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the review, will determine, 
consistent with FAG Italia v. United States, 291 F.3d 806 (Fed Cir. 
2002), as appropriate, whether antidumping duties have been absorbed by 
an exporter or producer subject to the review if the subject 
merchandise is sold in the United States through an importer that is 
affiliated with such exporter or producer. The request must include the 
name(s) of the exporter or producer for which the inquiry is requested.
     
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ If one of the above-named companies does not qualify for a 
separate rate, all other exporters of Helical Spring Lock Washers 
from the PRC who have not qualified for a separate rate are deemed 
to be covered by this review as part of the single PRC entity of 
which the named exporters are a part.
    \4\ If one of the above-named companies does not qualify for a 
separate rate, all other exporters of Steel Wire Garment Hangers 
from the PRC who have not qualified for a separate rate are deemed 
to be covered by this review as part of the single PRC entity of 
which the named exporters are a part.
    \5\ The companies listed above were misspelled in the initiation 
notice that published on November 8, 2013 (78 FR 67104). The correct 
spelling of the companies is listed in this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the first administrative review of any order, there will be no 
assessment of antidumping or countervailing duties on entries of 
subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption during the relevant provisional-measures ``gap'' period, of 
the order, if such a gap period is applicable to the POR.
    Interested parties must submit applications for disclosure under 
administrative protective orders in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. On 
January 22, 2008, the Department published Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Documents Submission Procedures; APO 
Procedures, 73 FR 3634 (January

[[Page 72633]]

22, 2008). Those procedures apply to administrative reviews included in 
this notice of initiation. Parties wishing to participate in any of 
these administrative reviews should ensure that the meet the 
requirements of these procedures (e.g., the filing of separate letters 
of appearance as discussed at 19 CFR 351.103(d)).

Revised Factual Information 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 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://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2013/1304frn/2013-08227.txt, prior to submitting factual information in this segment.
    Any party submitting factual information in an antidumping duty or 
countervailing duty 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. Ongoing segments of any antidumping duty or 
countervailing duty proceedings initiated on or after March 14, 2011 
should use the formats for the revised certifications provided at the 
end of the Interim Final Rule. See Certification of Factual Information 
to Import Administration During Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Proceedings: Interim Final Rule, 76 FR 7491 (February 10, 2011) 
(``Interim Final Rule''), amending 19 CFR 351.303(g)(1) and (2); 
Certification of Factual Information to Import Administration during 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Supplemental Interim 
Final Rule, 76 FR 54697 (September 2, 2011). All segments of any 
antidumping duty or countervailing duty proceedings initiated on or 
after August 16, 2013, should use the formats for the revised 
certifications provided at the end of the Final Rule. See Certification 
of Factual Information To Import Administration During Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 42678 (July 17, 2013) (``Final 
Rule''); see also the frequently asked questions regarding the Final 
Rule, available at http://enforcement.trade.gov/tlei/notices/factual_info_final_rule_FAQ_07172013.pdf. The Department intends to reject 
factual submissions in any proceeding segments if the submitting party 
does not comply with applicable revised certification requirements.

Revised Extension of Time Limits Regulation

    On September 20, 2013, the Department modified its regulation 
concerning the extension of time limits for submissions in antidumping 
(AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) proceedings: Final Rule, 78 FR 57790 
(September 20, 2013). The modification clarifies that parties may 
request an extension of time limits before a time limit established 
under Part 351 expires, or as otherwise specified by the Secretary. In 
general, an extension request will be considered untimely if it is 
filed after the time limit established under Part 351 expires. For 
submissions which are due from multiple parties simultaneously, an 
extension request will be considered untimely if it is filed after 
10:00 a.m. on the due date. Examples include, but are not limited to: 
(1) Case and rebuttal briefs, filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309; (2) 
factual information to value factors under 19 CFR 351.408(c), or to 
measure the adequacy of remuneration under 19 CFR 351.511(a)(2), filed 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3) and rebuttal, clarification and 
correction filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3)(iv); (3) comments 
concerning the selection of a surrogate country and surrogate values 
and rebuttal; (4) comments concerning U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection data; and (5) quantity and value questionnaires. Under 
certain circumstances, the Department may elect to specify a different 
time limit by which extension requests will be considered untimely for 
submissions which are due from multiple parties simultaneously. In such 
a case, the Department will inform parties in the letter or memorandum 
setting forth the deadline (including a specified time) by which 
extension requests must be filed to be considered timely. This 
modification also requires that an extension request must be made in a 
separate, stand-alone submission, and clarifies the circumstances under 
which the Department will grant untimely-filed requests for the 
extension of time limits. These modifications are effective for all 
segments initiated on or after October 21, 2013. Please review the 
final rule, available at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-09-20/html/2013-22853.htm, prior to submitting factual information in these 
segments.
    These initiations and this notice are in accordance with section 
751(a) of the Act (19 USC 1675(a)) and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i).

     Dated: November 26, 2013.

Operations.
