As stated above, Pavel Flider is the president and owner of Trident. Gennadiy Flider also is a Trident office manager, with responsibilities relating directly to the procurement and export activities at issue.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) received requests to conduct administrative reviews of the antidumping duty (AD) orders on certain frozen warmwater shrimp (shrimp) from India and Thailand for the period February 1, 2014 through January 31, 2015. The anniversary month of these orders is February. In accordance with the Department’s regulations, we are initiating these administrative reviews. The Department also received a request to defer the initiation of the administrative review for the order on shrimp from Thailand with respect to various Thai companies. DATES: Effective Date: March 30, 2015. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Blaine Wiltse at (202) 482–6345 (India) AGENCY: E:\FR\FM\30MRN1.SGM 30MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 60 / Monday, March 30, 2015 / Notices and Dennis McClure (202) 482–5973 (Thailand), AD/CVD Operations, Office II, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Background During the anniversary month of February 2015, the Department received timely requests, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for administrative reviews of the AD orders on shrimp from India and Thailand from the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (hereinafter, the petitioner), the American Shrimp Processors Association (ASPA), and certain individual companies. 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. Request To Defer Review of the AD Order on Shrimp From Thailand In their requests for administrative review, various Thai companies requested that the Department defer the initiation of the review for one year, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(c). These companies are identified by a * in the ‘‘Initiation of Reviews’’ section of this notice, below. The parties requested the deferral to reduce the burden on the companies and on the Department. The Department’s regulations, as set forth in 19 CFR 351.213(c)(1)(i) and (ii), provide that the Department may defer the initiation of an antidumping duty administrative review, in whole or in part, for one year if: (1) The request for review was accompanied by a request to defer the review; and (2) neither the exporter or producer for which the deferral is requested, the importer of subject merchandise from that exporter or producer, nor a domestic interested party objects to the deferral. On March 13, 2015, the petitioner submitted a timely-filed objection to deferring the initiation of this administrative review, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(c)(2).1 The preamble to the Department’s regulations states that the Department established the provision for deferring the initiation of an administrative review, in part, to reduce burdens on the Department.2 We believe that deferring the instant review is not likely to save Departmental resources because 1 See the petitioner’s March 13, 2015, letter. Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties; Final Rule, 62 FR 27296, 27317 (May 19, 1997). 2 See VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:57 Mar 27, 2015 Jkt 235001 it is likely that, in this review, as in every prior administrative review of the AD order on shrimp from Thailand,3 the Department will find it necessary to limit the number of respondents examined. Accordingly, even if the Department defers the administrative review for these companies, it will likely still review the same number of respondents, i.e., the maximum number of respondents which our resources will permit. Therefore, we have not deferred the instant review for any companies requesting deferral with respect to the AD order on shrimp from Thailand. 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://access.trade.gov in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303.4 Such submissions are subject to verification in accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 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 in the administrative review of the AD orders on shrimp from India and Thailand, 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 3 See, e.g., Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand; Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Partial Rescission of Review, Preliminary Determination of No Shipments; 2012–2013, 79 FR 15951 (March 24, 2014), unchanged in Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Final Determination of No Shipments, and Partial Rescission of Review; 2012–2013, 79 FR 51306 (August 28, 2014) (2012–2013 Thai Shrimp); and Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Intent To Revoke the Order (in Part); 2011–2012, 78 FR 15686 (March 12, 2013), unchanged in Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Partial Rescission of Review, and Revocation of Order (in Part); 2011–2012, 78 FR 42497, 42498–42499 (July 16, 2013) (2011–2012 Thai Shrimp). 4 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011). PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16635 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. Rebuttal comments will be due five days after submission of initial comments. 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 collapse companies at the respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to collapse certain companies in a previous segment of these antidumping proceedings (i.e., investigation, administrative review, or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to these reviews, 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. 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. 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. Requests for Reviews of Non-Shrimp Producers/Exporters In the 2011–2012 administrative review of shrimp from Thailand, the E:\FR\FM\30MRN1.SGM 30MRN1 16636 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 60 / Monday, March 30, 2015 / Notices Department found that Kosamut Frozen Foods Co., Ltd. (Kosamut) and Tanaya International Co., Ltd./Tanaya Intl (collectively, Tanaya) were neither exporters nor producers of the subject merchandise, as defined in 19 CFR 351.213(b) and 351.102(b)(29)(i). Accordingly, we rescinded the review for these companies, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).5 Therefore, based upon that determination, we are not initiating an administrative review with respect to Kosamut or Tanaya for the current POR absent specific information that the companies at issue are exporters or producers of the subject merchandise. In the 2013–2014 administrative review of shrimp from Thailand, the Department did not initiate a review with respect to GSE Lining Technology Co., Ltd. because the company neither produced nor exported shrimp.6 Therefore, we are not initiating an administrative review with respect to this company for the current POR. Initiation of Reviews In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we are initiating administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on shrimp from India and Thailand. We intend to issue the final results of these reviews not later than March 9, 2016. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Period to be reviewed Antidumping Duty Proceedings India: Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp, A–533–840 ......................................................................................................

Ltd. and its affiliates, and Pakfood Public Company Limited and its affiliates. See 2012–2013 Thai Shrimp, 79 FR 51306. Absent information to the contrary, we intend to continue to treat these companies as a single entity for purposes of this administrative review.

On January 22, 2008, the Department published Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Documents Submission Procedures; APO Procedures, 73 FR 3634 (January 22, 2008). Those procedures apply to the administrative reviews included in this notice of initiation. Parties wishing to participate in either of these administrative reviews should ensure that they meet the requirements of these procedures (e.g., the filing of separate letters of appearance as discussed at 19 CFR 351.103(d)). Any party submitting factual information in an antidumping duty proceeding must certify to the accuracy and completeness of that information.14 Parties are hereby reminded that revised certification requirements are in effect for company/government officials as well as their representatives. All segments of any antidumping 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.15 The Department intends to reject factual submissions in these administrative reviews if the submitting party does not comply with applicable revised certification requirements. 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) other data or statements of facts; (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 these segments. On September 20, 2013, the Department modified its regulation concerning the extension of time limits for submissions in antidumping duty proceedings.16 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) submissions containing rebuttal, clarification and correction filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3)(iv); (3) comments concerning CBP data; and (4) quantity and value questionnaire responses. 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.

Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India and Thailand: Notice 
of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) received requests 
to conduct administrative reviews of the antidumping duty (AD) orders 
on certain frozen warmwater shrimp (shrimp) from India and Thailand for 
the period February 1, 2014 through January 31, 2015. The anniversary 
month of these orders is February. In accordance with the Department's 
regulations, we are initiating these administrative reviews. The 
Department also received a request to defer the initiation of the 
administrative review for the order on shrimp from Thailand with 
respect to various Thai companies.

DATES: Effective Date: March 30, 2015.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Blaine Wiltse at (202) 482-6345 
(India)

and Dennis McClure (202) 482-5973 (Thailand), AD/CVD Operations, Office 
II, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., 
Washington, DC 20230.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    During the anniversary month of February 2015, the Department 
received timely requests, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for 
administrative reviews of the AD orders on shrimp from India and 
Thailand from the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (hereinafter, 
the petitioner), the American Shrimp Processors Association (ASPA), and 
certain individual companies.
    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.

Request To Defer Review of the AD Order on Shrimp From Thailand

    In their requests for administrative review, various Thai companies 
requested that the Department defer the initiation of the review for 
one year, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(c). These companies are identified 
by a * in the ``Initiation of Reviews'' section of this notice, below. 
The parties requested the deferral to reduce the burden on the 
companies and on the Department.
    The Department's regulations, as set forth in 19 CFR 
351.213(c)(1)(i) and (ii), provide that the Department may defer the 
initiation of an antidumping duty administrative review, in whole or in 
part, for one year if: (1) The request for review was accompanied by a 
request to defer the review; and (2) neither the exporter or producer 
for which the deferral is requested, the importer of subject 
merchandise from that exporter or producer, nor a domestic interested 
party objects to the deferral. On March 13, 2015, the petitioner 
submitted a timely-filed objection to deferring the initiation of this 
administrative review, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(c)(2).\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See the petitioner's March 13, 2015, letter.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The preamble to the Department's regulations states that the 
Department established the provision for deferring the initiation of an 
administrative review, in part, to reduce burdens on the Department.\2\ 
We believe that deferring the instant review is not likely to save 
Departmental resources because it is likely that, in this review, as in 
every prior administrative review of the AD order on shrimp from 
Thailand,\3\ the Department will find it necessary to limit the number 
of respondents examined. Accordingly, even if the Department defers the 
administrative review for these companies, it will likely still review 
the same number of respondents, i.e., the maximum number of respondents 
which our resources will permit. Therefore, we have not deferred the 
instant review for any companies requesting deferral with respect to 
the AD order on shrimp from Thailand.

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

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://access.trade.gov in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303.\4\ Such 
submissions are subject to verification in accordance with section 
782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order 
Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Respondent Selection

    In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for 
individual examination in the administrative review of the AD orders on 
shrimp from India and Thailand, 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. Rebuttal comments will be due five days after submission of 
initial comments.
    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 collapse companies at the respondent selection 
phase unless there has been a determination to collapse certain 
companies in a previous segment of these antidumping proceedings (i.e., 
investigation, administrative review, or changed circumstances review). 
For any company subject to these reviews, 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. 
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.

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.

Requests for Reviews of Non-Shrimp Producers/Exporters

    In the 2011-2012 administrative review of shrimp from Thailand, the

[[Page 16636]]

Department found that Kosamut Frozen Foods Co., Ltd. (Kosamut) and 
Tanaya International Co., Ltd./Tanaya Intl (collectively, Tanaya) were 
neither exporters nor producers of the subject merchandise, as defined 
in 19 CFR 351.213(b) and 351.102(b)(29)(i). Accordingly, we rescinded 
the review for these companies, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).\5\ 
Therefore, based upon that determination, we are not initiating an 
administrative review with respect to Kosamut or Tanaya for the current 
POR absent specific information that the companies at issue are 
exporters or producers of the subject merchandise.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See 2011-2012 Thai Shrimp, 78 FR at 42498-42499.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the 2013-2014 administrative review of shrimp from Thailand, the 
Department did not initiate a review with respect to GSE Lining 
Technology Co., Ltd. because the company neither produced nor exported 
shrimp.\6\ Therefore, we are not initiating an administrative review 
with respect to this company for the current POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India and Thailand: 
Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 79 
FR 18510 (April 2, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Initiation of Reviews

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we are initiating 
administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on shrimp from 
India and Thailand. We intend to issue the final results of these 
reviews not later than March 9, 2016.

    \7\ On December 11, 2012, the Department determined that Apex 
Frozen Foods Private Limited is the successor-in-interest to Apex 
Exports. See Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances 
Review: Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India, 77 FR 73619 
(December 11, 2012).
    \8\ On December 2, 2014, Premier Marine Products Private Limited 
was found to be the successor-in-interest to Premier Marine 
Products. See Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed 
Circumstances Review: Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India, 79 
FR 71384 (December 2, 2014).
    \9\ Shrimp produced and exported by Devi Sea Foods (Devi) was 
excluded from the AD Indian order effective February 1, 2009. See 
Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India: Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Partial Rescission of 
Review, and Notice of Revocation of Order in Part, 75 FR 41813, 
41814 (July 19, 2010). Accordingly, we are initiating this 
administrative review with respect to Devi only for shrimp produced 
in India where Devi acted as either the manufacturer or exporter 
(but not both).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    \10\ On December 1, 2010, the Department found that A Foods 1991 
Co., Limited is the successor-in-interest to May Ao Company Limited. 
See Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed 
Circumstances Review: Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand, 
75 FR 74684 (Dec. 1, 2010). Because the effective date of this 
determination is during a prior POR, we included only A Foods 1991 
Co., Limited for purposes of initiation.
    \11\ The request for deferral only covered Asian Seafoods 
Coldstorage Public Co., Ltd. and Asian Seafoods Coldstorage 
(Suratthani) Co., Limited.
    \12\ Shrimp produced and exported by Marine Gold Products Ltd. 
(Marine Gold) were excluded from the AD Thailand order effective 
February 1, 2012. See 2011-2012 Thai Shrimp, 78 FR at 42499. 
Accordingly, we are initiating this administrative review with 
respect to Marine Gold only for shrimp produced in Thailand where 
Marine Gold acted as either the manufacturer or exporter (but not 
both).
    \13\ In the 2012-2013 administrative review, the Department 
found that the following companies comprised a single entity: Thai 
Union Frozen Products Public Co. Ltd. and its affiliates, and 
Pakfood Public Company Limited and its affiliates. See 2012-2013 
Thai Shrimp, 79 FR 51306. Absent information to the contrary, we 
intend to continue to treat these companies as a single entity for 
purposes of this administrative review.

Administrative Protective Orders and Letters of Appearance

    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 22, 2008). Those procedures apply to 
the administrative reviews included in this notice of initiation. 
Parties wishing to participate in either of these administrative 
reviews should ensure that they 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) other data or statements of facts; (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 these segments.
    Any party submitting factual information in an antidumping duty 
proceeding must certify to the accuracy and completeness of that 
information.\14\ Parties are hereby reminded that revised certification 
requirements are in effect for company/government officials as well as 
their representatives. All segments of any antidumping 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.\15\ The 
Department intends to reject factual submissions in these 
administrative reviews if the submitting party does not comply with 
applicable revised certification requirements.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See section 782(b) of the Act.
    \15\ 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:

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

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 
duty proceedings.\16\ 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) 
submissions containing rebuttal, clarification and correction filed 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3)(iv); (3) comments concerning CBP data; 
and (4) quantity and value questionnaire responses. 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 
administrative reviews.
