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 and countervailing duty 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 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.

Downloads of the ‘‘printat-home’’ chart catalog in PDF format are free from the Coast Survey Web site. An interactive chart catalog is also available on the Coast Survey Web site (nauticalcharts.noaa.gov) for users who prefer to point, click, and download their charts from online. Coast Survey will consider making the front page of the large-format chart catalog. (We consider the reverse side, which lists chart agents, as obsolete and will not continue it.) Before making the decision, Coast Survey wants to know if demand remains for the large-format chart catalogs, and if users are willing to purchase these from commercial providers, such as NOAA-certified printing companies. Coast Survey invites written comments about: (1) Maintaining the large-format paper catalog (with no reverse side) if they are available for purchase from commercial provider; (2) the new free ‘‘print-at-home’’ PDF chart catalog; and (3) the online interactive chart catalog on the homepage of the nauticalcharts.noaa.gov Web site.

Background Until April 2014, the Federal Aviation Administration had printed NOAA’s nautical chart catalogs on oversized paper sheets (35 inches by 55 inches), folded them, and made them available to the public for free. Since the printing was done in bulk, and stored prior to distribution, the information on the reverse side of the catalogs was often out-of-date by the time catalogs reached customers. When the FAA ceased printing NOAA nautical charts in April, they also stopped printing the catalogs.

of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, the 
Department is publishing a notice of continuation of the antidumping

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by the order is frozen fish fillets, including 
regular, shank, and strip fillets and portions thereof, whether or not 
breaded or marinated, of the species Pangasius Bocourti, Pangasius 
Hypophthalmus (also known as Pangasius Pangasius) and Pangasius 
Micronemus.
    Frozen fish fillets are lengthwise cuts of whole fish. The fillet 
products covered by the scope include boneless fillets with the belly 
flap intact (``regular'' fillets), boneless fillets with the belly flap 
removed (``shank'' fillets) and boneless shank fillets cut into strips 
(``fillet strips/finger''), which include fillets cut into strips, 
chunks, blocks, skewers, or any other shape.
    Specifically excluded from the scope are frozen whole fish (whether 
or not dressed), frozen steaks, and frozen belly-flap nuggets. Frozen 
whole, dressed fish are deheaded, skinned, and eviscerated. Steaks are 
bone-in, cross-section cuts of dressed fish. Nuggets are the belly-
flaps.
    The subject merchandise will be hereinafter referred to as frozen 
``basa'' and ``tra'' fillets, which are the Vietnamese common names for 
these species of fish. These products are classifiable under tariff 
article codes 0304.29.6033, 0304.62.0020, 0305.59.0000, 0305.59.4000,

(Frozen Fish Fillets of the species Pangasius including basa and tra) 
of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'').\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Until July 1, 2004 these products were classifiable under 
HTSUS 0304.20.6030 (Frozen Catfish Fillets), 0304.20.6096 (Frozen 
Fish Fillets, NESOI), 0304.20.6043 (Frozen Freshwater Fish Fillets) 
and 0304.20.6057 (Frozen Sole Fillets). Until February 1, 2007 these 
products were classifiable under HTSUS 0304.20.6033 (Frozen Fish 
Fillets of the species Pangasius, including basa and tra). On March 
2, 2011 the Department added two HTSUS numbers at the request of 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP''): 1604.19.2000 and 1604 
19.3000. On January 30, 2012 the Department added eight HTSUS 
numbers at the request of CBP: 0304.62.0020, 0305.59.0000, 
1604.19.2100, 1604.19.3100, 1604.19.4100, 1604.19.5100, 1604.19.6100 
and 1604.19.8100.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The order covers all frozen fish fillets meeting the above 
specifications, regardless of tariff classification. Although the HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our 
written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.

Continuation of the Order

    As a result of the determinations by the Department and the ITC 
that revocation of the 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 
order on fish fillets from Vietnam. 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 the order will be the date of 
publication in the Federal Register of this notice of continuation. 
Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act, the Department intends to 
initiate the next five-year review of the 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.
