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.

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.

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 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 March 2014, 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.

For both antidumping and countervailing duty reviews, the interested party must specify the individual producers or exporters covered by an antidumping finding or an antidumping or countervailing duty order or suspension agreement for which it is requesting a review. In addition, a domestic interested party or an interested party described in section 771(9)(B) of the Act must state why it desires the Secretary to review those particular producers or exporters. If the interested party intends for the Secretary to review sales of merchandise by an exporter (or a producer if that producer also exports merchandise from other suppliers) which were produced in more than one country of origin and each country of origin is subject to a separate order, then the interested party must state specifically, on an order-by-order basis, which exporter(s) the request is intended to cover. Please note that, for any party the Department was unable to locate in prior segments, the Department will not accept a request for an administrative review of that party absent new information as to the party’s location. Moreover, if the interested party who files a request for review is unable to locate the producer or exporter for which it requested the review, the interested party must provide an explanation of the attempts it made to locate the producer or exporter at the same time it files its request for review, in order for the Secretary to determine if the interested party’s attempts were reasonable, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.303(f)(3)(ii). As explained in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003), and NonMarket Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011) the Department has clarified its practice with respect to the collection of final antidumping duties on imports of merchandise where intermediate firms are involved. The public should be aware of this clarification in determining whether to request an administrative review of merchandise subject to antidumping findings and orders.2 Further, as explained in Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change 2 See also the Enforcement and Compliance Web site at https://trade.gov/enforcement/. VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:40 Feb 28, 2014 Jkt 232001 in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013), the Department has clarified its practice with regard to the conditional review of the non-market economy (NME) entity in administrative reviews of antidumping duty orders. The Department will no longer consider the NME entity as an exporter conditionally subject to administrative reviews. Accordingly, the NME entity will not be under review unless the Department specifically receives a request for, or self-initiates, a review of the NME entity.3 In administrative reviews of antidumping duty orders on merchandise from NME countries where a review of the NME entity has not been initiated, but where an individual exporter for which a review was initiated does not qualify for a separate rate, the Department will issue a final decision indicating that the company in question is part of the NME entity. However, in that situation, because no review of the NME entity was conducted, the NME entity’s entries were not subject to the review and the rate for the NME entity is not subject to change as a result of that review (although the rate for the individual exporter may change as a function of the finding that the exporter is part of the NME entity). Following initiation of an antidumping administrative review when there is no review requested of the NME entity, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate entries for all exporters not named in the initiation notice, including those that were suspended at the NME entity rate. All requests must be filed electronically in Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (‘‘IA ACCESS’’) on the IA ACCESS Web site at https://iaaccess.trade.gov.4 Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(l)(i), a copy of each request must be served on the petitioner and each exporter or producer specified in the request. The Department will publish in the Federal Register a notice of ‘‘Initiation of Administrative Review of 3 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(1), parties should specify that they are requesting a review of entries from exporters comprising the entity, and to the extent possible, include the names of such exporters in their request. 4 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011).

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 period of review.

Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended 
Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review

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

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.

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

[[Page 11758]]

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 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 March 2014, 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 
March 2014,\1\ interested parties may request administrative review of 
the following orders, findings, or suspended investigations, with

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), an interested party as 
defined by section 771(9) of the Act may request in writing that the 
Secretary conduct an administrative review. For both antidumping and 
countervailing duty reviews, the interested party must specify the 
individual producers or exporters covered by an antidumping finding or 
an antidumping or countervailing duty order or suspension agreement for 
which it is requesting a review. In addition, a domestic interested 
party or an interested party described in section 771(9)(B) of the Act 
must state why it desires the Secretary to review those particular 
producers or exporters. If the interested party intends for the 
Secretary to review sales of merchandise by an exporter (or a producer 
if that producer also exports merchandise from other suppliers) which 
were produced in more than one country of origin and each country of 
origin is subject to a separate order, then the interested party must 
state specifically, on an order-by-order basis, which exporter(s) the 
request is intended to cover.
    Please note that, for any party the Department was unable to locate 
in prior segments, the Department will not accept a request for an 
administrative review of that party absent new information as to the 
party's location. Moreover, if the interested party who files a request 
for review is unable to locate the producer or exporter for which it 
requested the review, the interested party must provide an explanation 
of the attempts it made to locate the producer or exporter at the same 
time it files its request for review, in order for the Secretary to 
determine if the interested party's attempts were reasonable, pursuant 
to 19 CFR 351.303(f)(3)(ii).
    As explained in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003), and Non-
Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping 
Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011) the Department has clarified its 
practice with respect to the collection of final antidumping duties on 
imports of merchandise where intermediate firms are involved. The 
public should be aware of this clarification in determining whether to 
request an administrative review of merchandise subject to antidumping 
findings and orders.\2\

    Further, as explained in Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of 
Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping 
Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity 
in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013), 
the Department has clarified its practice with regard to the 
conditional review of the non-market economy (NME) entity in 
administrative reviews of antidumping duty orders. The Department will 
no longer consider the NME entity as an exporter conditionally subject 
to administrative reviews. Accordingly, the NME entity will not be 
under review unless the Department specifically receives a request for, 
or self-initiates, a review of the NME entity.\3\ In administrative 
reviews of antidumping duty orders on merchandise from NME countries 
where a review of the NME entity has not been initiated, but where an 
individual exporter for which a review was initiated does not qualify 
for a separate rate, the Department will issue a final decision 
indicating that the company in question is part of the NME entity. 
However, in that situation, because no review of the NME entity was 
conducted, the NME entity's entries were not subject to the review and 
the rate for the NME entity is not subject to change as a result of 
that review (although the rate for the individual exporter may change 
as a function of the finding that the exporter is part of the NME 
entity).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(1), parties should 
specify that they are requesting a review of entries from exporters 
comprising the entity, and to the extent possible, include the names 
of such exporters in their request.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Following initiation of an antidumping administrative review when 
there is no review requested of the NME entity, the Department will 
instruct CBP to liquidate entries for all exporters not named in the 
initiation notice, including those that were suspended at the NME 
entity rate.
    All requests must be filed electronically in Enforcement and 
Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic 
Service System (``IA ACCESS'') on the IA ACCESS Web site at https://iaaccess.trade.gov.\4\ Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.303(f)(l)(i), a copy of each request must be served on the 
petitioner and each exporter or producer specified in the request.

Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order 
Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department will publish in the Federal Register a notice of 
``Initiation of Administrative Review of Antidumping or Countervailing 
Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation'' for requests received 
by the last day of March 2014. If the Department does not receive, by 
the last day of March 2014, a request for review of entries covered by 
an order, finding, or suspended investigation listed in this notice and 
for the period identified above, the Department will instruct CBP to 
assess antidumping or countervailing duties on those entries at a rate 
equal to the cash deposit of (or bond for) estimated antidumping or 
countervailing duties required on those entries at the time of entry, 
or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption and to continue to 
collect the cash deposit previously ordered.
    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 period of review.
    This notice is not required by statute but is published as a 
service to the international trading community.

    Dated: February 21, 2014.
Christian Marsh,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
