Download as PDF 7644 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 27 / Monday, February 10, 2014 / Notices (hereinafter referred to as ‘‘Petitioners’’) made a timely request for a 50-day postponement of the preliminary determination in this investigation, pursuant to section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(e).4 Petitioners noted in their request that they require additional time to analyze and comment upon the questionnaire responses of the mandatory respondents in this investigation. The Department has found no compelling reason to deny the request and, therefore, in accordance with section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Act, the Department is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determination to no later than 206 days after the date on which it initiated this investigation (the original 140-day period plus the 16 days tolled for the shutdown of the Federal Government and a 50 day postponement). Therefore, the new deadline for issuing the preliminary determination is April 14, 2014.5 In accordance with section 735(a)(1) of the Act, the deadline for the final determination of this investigation will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determination, unless postponed at a later date. This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 733(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1). International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce. SUMMARY: On October 1, 2013, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated the first five-year (sunset) review of the antidumping duty (AD) order on lightweight thermal paper from Germany pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).1 On the basis of adequate substantive responses submitted by domestic and respondent interested parties, the Department is conducting a full sunset review of this AD order pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(2). As a result of our analysis, the Department preliminarily finds that revocation of the AD order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the levels indicated in the ‘‘Preliminary Results of Review’’ section of this notice. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective February 10, 2014.
