Filing Information

    As a courtesy, we are making information related to sunset 
proceedings, including copies of the pertinent statute and Department's 
regulations, the Department's schedule for Sunset Reviews, a listing of 
past revocations and continuations, and current service lists, 
available to the public on the Department's Web site at the following 
address: All submissions in these 
Sunset Reviews must be filed in accordance with the Department's 
regulations regarding format, translation, and service of documents. 
These rules, including electronic filing requirements via Enforcement 
and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized

    \2\ See also Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order 
Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011).

    This notice serves as a reminder that any party submitting factual 
information in an AD/CVD proceeding must certify to the accuracy and 
completeness of that information.\3\ Parties are hereby reminded that 
revised certification requirements are in effect for company/government 
officials as well as their representatives in these segments.\4\ The 
formats for the revised certifications are provided at the end of the 
Final Rule. The Department intends to reject factual submissions if the 
submitting party does not comply with the revised certification 

    \3\ See section 782(b) of the Act.
    \4\ See Certification of Factual Information To Import

information (19 CFR 351.301).\5\ Parties are advised to review the 
final rule, available at, prior to submitting factual information in these

limits will continue to be applied. Parties are also advised to review 
the final rule concerning the extension of time limits for submissions 
in AD/CVD proceedings, available at, prior to submitting factual information in

Letters of Appearance and Administrative Protective Orders

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.103(d), the Department will maintain and 
make available a public service list for these proceedings. Parties 
wishing to participate in any of these five-year reviews must file 
letters of appearance as discussed at 19 CFR 351.103(d)). To facilitate 
the timely preparation of the public service list, it is requested that 
those seeking recognition as interested parties to a proceeding submit 
an entry of appearance within 10 days of the publication of the Notice 
of Initiation.
    Because deadlines in Sunset Reviews can be very short, we urge 
interested parties who want access to proprietary information under 
administrative protective order (``APO'') to file an APO application 
immediately following publication in the Federal Register of this 
notice of initiation. The Department's regulations on submission of 
proprietary information and eligibility to receive access to business 
proprietary information under APO can be found at 19 CFR 351.304-306.

Information Required From Interested Parties

    Domestic interested parties, as defined in section 771(9)(C), (D), 
(E), (F), and (G) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.102(b), wishing to 
participate in a Sunset Review must respond not later than 15 days 
after the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of 
initiation by filing a notice of intent to participate. The required 
contents of the notice of intent to participate are set forth at 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(ii). In accordance with the Department's regulations, if 
we do not receive a notice of intent to participate from at least one 
domestic interested party by the 15-day deadline, the Department will 
automatically revoke the order without further review.\7\

    \7\ See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii).

    If we receive an order-specific notice of intent to participate 
from a domestic interested party, the Department's regulations provide 
that all parties wishing to participate in a Sunset Review must file 
complete substantive responses not later than 30 days after the date of 
publication in the Federal Register of this notice of initiation. The 
required contents of a substantive response, on an order-specific 
basis, are set forth at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3). Note that certain 
information requirements differ for respondent and domestic parties. 
Also, note that the Department's information requirements are distinct 
from the Commission's information requirements. Consult the 
Department's regulations for information regarding the Department's 
conduct of Sunset Reviews. Consult the Department's regulations at 19 
CFR part 351 for definitions of terms and for other general information
