The investigation covers industrial grade amorphous silica fabric regardless of other materials contained in the fabric, regardless of whether in roll form or cut-to-length, regardless of weight, width (except as noted above), or length. The investigation covers industrial grade amorphous silica fabric regardless of whether the product is approved by a standards testing body (such as being Factory Mutual (FM) Approved), or regardless of whether it meets any governmental specification. Industrial grade amorphous silica fabric may be produced in various colors. The investigation covers industrial grade amorphous silica fabric regardless of whether VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:14 Aug 31, 2016 Jkt 238001 the fabric is colored. Industrial grade amorphous silica fabric may be coated or treated with materials that include, but are not limited to, oils, vermiculite, acrylic latex compound, silicone, aluminized polyester (Mylar®) film, pressure-sensitive adhesive, or other coatings and treatments. The investigation covers industrial grade amorphous silica fabric regardless of whether the fabric is coated or treated, and regardless of coating or treatment weight as a percentage of total product weight. Industrial grade amorphous silica fabric may be heat-cleaned. The investigation covers industrial grade amorphous silica fabric regardless of whether the fabric is heat-cleaned. Industrial grade amorphous silica fabric may be imported in rolls or may be cut-tolength and then further fabricated to make welding curtains, welding blankets, welding pads, fire blankets, fire pads, or fire screens. Regardless of the name, all industrial grade amorphous silica fabric that has been further cut-to-length or cut-to-width or further finished by finishing the edges and/or adding grommets, is included within the scope of this investigation. Subject merchandise also includes (1) any industrial grade amorphous silica fabric that has been converted into industrial grade amorphous silica fabric in China from fiberglass cloth produced in a third country; and (2) any industrial grade amorphous silica fabric that has been further processed in a third country prior to export to the United States, including but not limited to treating, coating, slitting, cutting to length, cutting to width, finishing the edges, adding grommets, or any other processing that would not otherwise remove the merchandise from the scope of the investigation if performed in the country of manufacture of the in-scope industrial grade amorphous silica fabric. Excluded from the scope of the investigation is amorphous silica fabric that is subjected to controlled shrinkage, which is also called ‘‘pre-shrunk’’ or ‘‘aerospace grade’’ amorphous silica fabric. In order to be excluded as a pre-shrunk or aerospace grade amorphous silica fabric, the amorphous silica fabric must meet the following exclusion criteria: (l) The amorphous silica fabric must contain a minimum of 98 percent silica (SiO2) by nominal weight; (2) the amorphous silica fabric must have an areal shrinkage of 4 percent or less; (3) the amorphous silica fabric must contain no coatings or treatments; and (4) the amorphous silica fabric must be white in color. For purposes of this scope, ‘‘areal shrinkage’’ refers to the extent to which a specimen of amorphous silica fabric shrinks while subjected to heating at 1800 degrees F for 30 minutes.16 Also excluded from the scope are amorphous silica fabric rope and tubing (or sleeving). Amorphous silica fabric rope is a knitted or braided product made from amorphous silica yarns. Silica tubing (or sleeving) is braided into a hollow sleeve from amorphous silica yarns.

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: ``http://enforcement.trade.gov/sunset/.'' 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 
Electronic Service System (``ACCESS''), can be found at 19 CFR 
351.303.\1\

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.\2\ Parties are hereby reminded that 
revised certification requirements are in effect for company/government 
officials as well as their representatives in these segments.\3\ 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 
requirements.

Administration During Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Proceedings, 78 FR 42678 (July 17, 2013) (``Final Rule'') (amending

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

    On April 10, 2013, the Department modified two regulations related 
to AD/CVD 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).\4\ Parties are advised to review the 
final rule, available at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2013/1304frn/2013-08227.txt, prior to submitting factual information in these 
segments. To the extent that other regulations govern the submission of 
factual information in a segment (such as 19 CFR 351.218), these time 
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 http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2013/1309frn/2013-22853.txt, prior to submitting factual information in 
these segments.\5\

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.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ 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 
concerning antidumping and countervailing duty proceedings at the 
Department.
    This notice of initiation is being published in accordance with 
section 751(c) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(c).
