DATES: Effective Date: July 2, 2014. SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of Commerce (the Department) and the International Trade Commission (ITC) that revocation of the antidumping duty order on silicon metal from the Russian Federation (Russia), 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 for this antidumping duty order.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: Background The Department initiated and the ITC instituted sunset reviews of the antidumping duty order on silicon metal from Russia, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:49 Jul 01, 2014 Jkt 232001 amended (the Act).1 As a result of its review, the Department found that revocation of the antidumping duty order would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and therefore notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail were the order to be revoked.2 On June 17, 2014, the ITC published its determination pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the antidumping duty order on silicon metal from Russia would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.3 five-year review of this order not later than 30 days prior to the fifth anniversary of the effective date of continuation. This five-year (sunset) review and this notice are in accordance with section 751(c) of the Act and published pursuant to section 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(f)(4). Scope of the Order The product covered by this order is silicon metal, which generally contains at least 96.00 percent but less than 99.99 percent silicon by weight. The merchandise covered by this order also includes silicon metal from Russia containing between 89.00 and 96.00 percent silicon by weight, but containing more aluminum than the silicon metal which contains at least 96.00 percent but less than 99.99 percent silicon by weight. Silicon metal currently is classifiable under subheadings 2804.69.10 and 2804.69.50 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). This order covers all silicon metal meeting the above specification, regardless of tariff classification. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Continuation of the Order As a result of the determinations by the Department and the ITC that revocation of this antidumping duty order 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 duty order on silicon metal from Russia. 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 this order will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of continuation.

Postponement of Final Determination

    Section 735(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 
provides that a final determination may be postponed until not later 
than 135 days after the date of the publication of the preliminary 
determination if, in the event of an affirmative preliminary 
determination, a request for such postponement is made by exporters who 
account for a significant proportion of exports of the subject 
merchandise, or in the event of a negative preliminary determination, a 
request for such postponement is made by the petitioner. Section 
351.210(e)(2) of the Department's regulations requires that requests by 
respondents for postponement of a final determination be accompanied by 
a request for extension of provisional measures from a four-month 
period to a period not more than six months in duration.
    Baoshan, ThyssenKrupp, JFE Steel, Nippon, Surahammars, and CDW 
requested that the Department postpone its final determinations by 60 
days (i.e., to 135 days after publication of the Preliminary 
Determinations), and agreed to extend the application of the 
provisional measures prescribed under section 733(d) of the Act and 19 
CFR 351.210(e)(2), from a four-month period to a period not to exceed 
six months. CDW, JFE Steel, and Surahammars are mandatory respondents 
in their respective investigations. While Baoshan, Nippon, and 
ThyssenKrupp are not mandatory respondents, they were identified as 
producers or exporters of subject merchandise in the Petitions.\4\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On May 22, 2014, AK Steel Corporation (``Petitioner'') objected to 
the requests that the deadline be postponed in the PRC, Germany and 
Japan investigations.\5\ On June 9, 2014, Petitioner withdrew its 
opposition to postponement of the final determinations in the PRC, 
Germany and Japan investigations.\6\

    In accordance with section 735(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.210(b)(2)(ii), because (1) our preliminary determinations were 
affirmative; (2) the requesting producers or exporters account for a 
significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise from their 
respective country; and (3) no compelling reasons for denial exist, we 
are postponing the final determination until no later than 135 days 
after the publication of the Preliminary Determinations (i.e., to 
October 4, 2014) and extending the provisional measures from a four-
month period to a period not greater than six months. Accordingly, we 
will issue our final determination no later than 135 days after the 
date of publication of this preliminary determination, pursuant to 
section 735(a)(2) of the Act. Because October 4, 2014, is a Saturday,
