SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) has received requests to conduct administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with January anniversary dates. In accordance with the Department’s regulations, we are initiating those administrative reviews. DATES: Effective March 15, 2017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brenda E. Waters, Office of AD/CVD Operations, Customs Liaison Unit, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230, telephone: (202) 482–4735. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background The Department has received timely requests, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with January anniversary dates. 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. 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 30 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 351.303.1 Such submissions are subject to 1 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011). PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13795 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 for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to requests made for the orders identified below, except for the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’), the Department intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) data for U.S. imports during the period of review. We intend to place the CBP data on the record within five days of publication of the initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 30 days of publication of the initiation Federal Register notice. Comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection should be submitted seven days after the placement of the CBP data on the record of this review. Parties wishing to submit rebuttal comments should submit those comments five days after the deadline for the initial comments. In the event the Department decides it is necessary to limit individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act: 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 conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent selection phase of this review and will not collapse companies at the respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this antidumping proceeding (i.e., investigation, administrative review, new shipper review or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to this review, 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. Otherwise, the Department will not collapse companies E:\FR\FM\15MRN1.SGM 15MRN1 13796 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 49 / Wednesday, March 15, 2017 / Notices asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES2 for purposes of respondent selection. 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. Further, if companies are requested to complete the Quantity and Value (‘‘Q&V’’) Questionnaire for purposes of respondent selection, in general each company must report volume and value data separately for itself. Parties should not include data for any other party, even if they believe they should be treated as a single entity with that other party. If a company was collapsed with another company or companies in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding where the Department considered collapsing that entity, complete Q&V data for that collapsed entity must be submitted. Respondent Selection—Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the PRC In the event that the Department limits the number of respondents for individual examination in the antidumping duty administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC, for the purposes of this segment of the proceeding, i.e., the 2016 review period, the Department intends to select respondents based on volume data contained in responses to a Q&V questionnaire. All parties are hereby notified that they must timely respond to the Q&V questionnaire. The Department’s Q&V questionnaire along with certain additional questions will be available in a document package on the Department’s Web site at http:// enforcement.trade.gov/download/prcwbf/index.html on the date this notice is published. The responses to the Q&V questionnaire should be filed with the respondents’ Separate Rate Application or Separate Rate Certification (see the ‘‘Separate Rates’’ section below) and their response to the additional questions and must be received by the Department by no later than 30 days after publication of this notice. Please be advised that due to the time constraints imposed by the statutory and regulatory deadlines for antidumping duty administrative reviews, the Department does not intend to grant any extensions for the submission of responses to the Q&V questionnaire. 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:19 Mar 14, 2017 Jkt 241001 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. Separate Rates In proceedings involving non-market economy (‘‘NME’’) countries, the Department begins with a rebuttable presumption that all companies within the country are subject to government control and, thus, should be assigned a single antidumping duty deposit rate. It is the Department’s policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to an administrative review in an NME country this single rate unless an exporter can demonstrate that it is sufficiently independent so as to be entitled to a separate rate. To establish whether a firm is sufficiently independent from government control of its export activities to be entitled to a separate rate, the Department analyzes each entity exporting the subject merchandise. In accordance with the separate rates criteria, the Department assigns separate rates to companies in NME cases only if respondents can demonstrate the absence of both de jure and de facto government control over export activities. All firms listed below that wish to qualify for separate rate status in the administrative reviews involving NME countries must complete, as appropriate, either a separate rate application or certification, as described below. In addition, all firms that wish to qualify for separate-rate status in the antidumping duty administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC must complete, as appropriate, either a separate-rate certification or application, as described below, and respond to the additional questions and the Q&V questionnaire on the Department’s Web site at http:// enforcement.trade.gov/download/prcwbf/index.html. For these administrative reviews, in order to demonstrate separate rate eligibility, the Department requires entities for whom a review was requested, that were assigned a separate rate in the most recent segment of this proceeding in which they participated, to certify that PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 they continue to meet the criteria for obtaining a separate rate. The Separate Rate Certification form will be available on the Department’s Web site at http:// enforcement.trade.gov/nme/nme-seprate.html on the date of publication of this Federal Register notice. In responding to the certification, please follow the ‘‘Instructions for Filing the Certification’’ in the Separate Rate Certification. Separate Rate Certifications are due to the Department no later than 30 calendar days after publication of this Federal Register notice. The deadline and requirement for submitting a Certification applies equally to NME-owned firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers who purchase and export subject merchandise to the United States. For the antidumping duty administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC, Separate Rate Certifications, as well as a response to the Q&V questionnaire and the additional questions in the document package, are due to the Department no later than 30 calendar days after publication of this Federal Register notice. Entities that currently do not have a separate rate from a completed segment of the proceeding 2 should timely file a Separate Rate Application to demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate in this proceeding. In addition, companies that received a separate rate in a completed segment of the proceeding that have subsequently made changes, including, but not limited to, changes to corporate structure, acquisitions of new companies or facilities, or changes to their official company name,3 should timely file a Separate Rate Application to demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate in this proceeding. The Separate Rate Status Application will be available on the Department’s Web site at http://enforcement.trade.gov/nme/ nme-sep-rate.html on the date of publication of this Federal Register notice. In responding to the Separate Rate Status Application, refer to the instructions contained in the application. Separate Rate Status 2 Such entities include entities that have not participated in the proceeding, entities that were preliminarily granted a separate rate in any currently incomplete segment of the proceeding (e.g., an ongoing administrative review, new shipper review, etc.) and entities that lost their separate rate in the most recently completed segment of the proceeding in which they participated. 3 Only changes to the official company name, rather than trade names, need to be addressed via a Separate Rate Application. Information regarding new trade names may be submitted via a Separate Rate Certification. E:\FR\FM\15MRN1.SGM 15MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 49 / Wednesday, March 15, 2017 / Notices Applications are due to the Department no later than 30 calendar days of publication of this Federal Register notice. For the antidumping duty administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC, Separate Rate Status Applications, as well as a response to the Q&V questionnaire and the additional questions in the document package, are due to the Department no later than 30 calendar days after publication of this Federal Register notice. The deadline and requirement for submitting a Separate Rate Status Application applies equally to NME-owned firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers that purchase and export subject merchandise to the United States. For exporters and producers who submit a separate-rate status application or certification and subsequently are selected as mandatory respondents, these exporters and producers will no longer be eligible for separate rate status unless they respond to all parts of the questionnaire as mandatory respondents. Furthermore, this notice constitutes public notification to all firms for which an antidumping duty administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC has been requested, and that are seeking separate rate status in the review, that they must submit a timely separate rate application or certification (as appropriate) as described above, and a timely response to the Q&V questionnaire and the additional questions in the document package on the Department’s Web site in order to receive consideration for separate-rate status. In other words, the Department will not give consideration to any timely separate rate certification or application made by parties who 13797 failed to respond in a timely manner to the Q&V questionnaire and the additional questions. All information submitted by respondents in the antidumping duty administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC is subject to verification. As noted above, the separate rate certification, the separate rate application, the Q&V questionnaire, and the additional questions will be available on the Department’s Web site on the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

Respondent Selection

    In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for 
individual examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to 
requests made for the orders identified below, except for the 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom 
furniture from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''), the Department 
intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP'') data for U.S. imports during the period of review. 
We intend to place the CBP data on the record within five days of 
publication of the initiation notice and to make our decision regarding 
respondent selection within 30 days of publication of the initiation 
Federal Register notice. Comments regarding the CBP data and respondent 
selection should be submitted seven days after the placement of the CBP 
data on the record of this review. Parties wishing to submit rebuttal 
comments should submit those comments five days after the deadline for 
the initial comments.
    In the event the Department decides it is necessary to limit 
individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection 
under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act:
    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 conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent 
selection phase of this review and will not collapse companies at the 
respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to 
collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this antidumping 
proceeding (i.e., investigation, administrative review, new shipper 
review or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to 
this review, 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. Otherwise, the Department will not 
collapse companies

[[Page 13796]]

for purposes of respondent selection. 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. Further, if companies are requested to complete the Quantity 
and Value (``Q&V'') Questionnaire for purposes of respondent selection, 
in general each company must report volume and value data separately 
for itself. Parties should not include data for any other party, even 
if they believe they should be treated as a single entity with that 
other party. If a company was collapsed with another company or 
companies in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding 
where the Department considered collapsing that entity, complete Q&V 
data for that collapsed entity must be submitted.

Respondent Selection--Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the PRC

    In the event that the Department limits the number of respondents 
for individual examination in the antidumping duty administrative 
review of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC, for the purposes of 
this segment of the proceeding, i.e., the 2016 review period, the 
Department intends to select respondents based on volume data contained 
in responses to a Q&V questionnaire. All parties are hereby notified 
that they must timely respond to the Q&V questionnaire. The 
Department's Q&V questionnaire along with certain additional questions 
will be available in a document package on the Department's Web site at 
http://enforcement.trade.gov/download/prc-wbf/index.html on the date 
this notice is published. The responses to the Q&V questionnaire should 
be filed with the respondents' Separate Rate Application or Separate 
Rate Certification (see the ``Separate Rates'' section below) and their 
response to the additional questions and must be received by the 
Department by no later than 30 days after publication of this notice. 
Please be advised that due to the time constraints imposed by the 
statutory and regulatory deadlines for antidumping duty administrative 
reviews, the Department does not intend to grant any extensions for the 
submission of responses to the Q&V questionnaire.

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.

Separate Rates

    In proceedings involving non-market economy (``NME'') countries, 
the Department begins with a rebuttable presumption that all companies 
within the country are subject to government control and, thus, should 
be assigned a single antidumping duty deposit rate. It is the 
Department's policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to 
an administrative review in an NME country this single rate unless an 
exporter can demonstrate that it is sufficiently independent so as to 
be entitled to a separate rate.
    To establish whether a firm is sufficiently independent from 
government control of its export activities to be entitled to a 
separate rate, the Department analyzes each entity exporting the 
subject merchandise. In accordance with the separate rates criteria, 
the Department assigns separate rates to companies in NME cases only if 
respondents can demonstrate the absence of both de jure and de facto 
government control over export activities.
    All firms listed below that wish to qualify for separate rate 
status in the administrative reviews involving NME countries must 
complete, as appropriate, either a separate rate application or 
certification, as described below. In addition, all firms that wish to 
qualify for separate-rate status in the antidumping duty administrative 
review of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC must complete, as 
appropriate, either a separate-rate certification or application, as 
described below, and respond to the additional questions and the Q&V 
questionnaire on the Department's Web site at http://enforcement.trade.gov/download/prc-wbf/index.html. For these 
administrative reviews, in order to demonstrate separate rate 
eligibility, the Department requires entities for whom a review was 
requested, that were assigned a separate rate in the most recent 
segment of this proceeding in which they participated, to certify that 
they continue to meet the criteria for obtaining a separate rate. The 
Separate Rate Certification form will be available on the Department's 
Web site at http://enforcement.trade.gov/nme/nme-sep-rate.html on the 
date of publication of this Federal Register notice. In responding to 
the certification, please follow the ``Instructions for Filing the 
Certification'' in the Separate Rate Certification. Separate Rate 
Certifications are due to the Department no later than 30 calendar days 
after publication of this Federal Register notice. The deadline and 
requirement for submitting a Certification applies equally to NME-owned 
firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers who purchase and 
export subject merchandise to the United States. For the antidumping 
duty administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC, 
Separate Rate Certifications, as well as a response to the Q&V 
questionnaire and the additional questions in the document package, are 
due to the Department no later than 30 calendar days after publication 
of this Federal Register notice.
    Entities that currently do not have a separate rate from a 
completed segment of the proceeding \2\ should timely file a Separate 
Rate Application to demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate in this 
proceeding. In addition, companies that received a separate rate in a 
completed segment of the proceeding that have subsequently made 
changes, including, but not limited to, changes to corporate structure, 
acquisitions of new companies or facilities, or changes to their 
official company name,\3\ should timely file a Separate Rate 
Application to demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate in this 
proceeding. The Separate Rate Status Application will be available on 
the Department's Web site at http://enforcement.trade.gov/nme/nme-sep-rate.html on the date of publication of this Federal Register notice. 
In responding to the Separate Rate Status Application, refer to the 
instructions contained in the application. Separate Rate Status

[[Page 13797]]

Applications are due to the Department no later than 30 calendar days 
of publication of this Federal Register notice. For the antidumping 
duty administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC, 
Separate Rate Status Applications, as well as a response to the Q&V 
questionnaire and the additional questions in the document package, are 
due to the Department no later than 30 calendar days after publication 
of this Federal Register notice. The deadline and requirement for 
submitting a Separate Rate Status Application applies equally to NME-
owned firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers that 
purchase and export subject merchandise to the United States.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Such entities include entities that have not participated in 
the proceeding, entities that were preliminarily granted a separate 
rate in any currently incomplete segment of the proceeding (e.g., an 
ongoing administrative review, new shipper review, etc.) and 
entities that lost their separate rate in the most recently 
completed segment of the proceeding in which they participated.
    \3\ Only changes to the official company name, rather than trade 
names, need to be addressed via a Separate Rate Application. 
Information regarding new trade names may be submitted via a 
Separate Rate Certification.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For exporters and producers who submit a separate-rate status 
application or certification and subsequently are selected as mandatory 
respondents, these exporters and producers will no longer be eligible 
for separate rate status unless they respond to all parts of the 
questionnaire as mandatory respondents.
    Furthermore, this notice constitutes public notification to all 
firms for which an antidumping duty administrative review of wooden 
bedroom furniture from the PRC has been requested, and that are seeking 
separate rate status in the review, that they must submit a timely 
separate rate application or certification (as appropriate) as 
described above, and a timely response to the Q&V questionnaire and the 
additional questions in the document package on the Department's Web 
site in order to receive consideration for separate-rate status. In 
other words, the Department will not give consideration to any timely 
separate rate certification or application made by parties who failed 
to respond in a timely manner to the Q&V questionnaire and the 
additional questions. All information submitted by respondents in the 
antidumping duty administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture from 
the PRC is subject to verification. As noted above, the separate rate 
certification, the separate rate application, the Q&V questionnaire, 
and the additional questions will be available on the Department's Web 
site on the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

Initiation of Reviews

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we are initiating 
administrative reviews of the following antidumping and countervailing 
duty orders and findings. We intend to issue the final results of these 
reviews not later than January 31, 2018.

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

    \4\ In the initiation notice that published on February 13, 2017 
(82 FR 10457) the POR for the above referenced case was incorrect. 
The period listed above is the correct POR for this case.
    \5\ The company listed above was inadvertently omitted from the 
initiation notice that published on February 13, 2017 (82 FR 10457).
    \6\ The The department inadvertently omitted Double F Limited

2017 (82 FR 10457).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    During any administrative review covering all or part of a period 
falling between the first and second or third and fourth anniversary of 
the publication of an antidumping duty order under 19 CFR 351.211 or a 
determination under 19 CFR 351.218(f)(4) to continue an order or 
suspended investigation (after sunset review), the Secretary, if 
requested by a domestic interested party within 30 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the review, will determine 
whether antidumping duties have been absorbed by an exporter or 
producer subject to the review if the subject merchandise is sold in 
the United States through an importer that is affiliated with such 
exporter or producer. The request must include the

[[Page 13799]]

name(s) of the exporter or producer for which the inquiry is requested.

Gap Period Liquidation

    For the first administrative review of any order, there will be no 
assessment of antidumping or countervailing duties on entries of 
subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption during the relevant provisional-measures ``gap'' period, of 
the order, if such a gap period is applicable to the POR.

Administrative Protective Orders and Letters of Appearance

    Interested parties must submit applications for disclosure under 
administrative protective orders in accordance with the procedures 
outlined in the Department's regulations at 19 CFR 351.305. Those 
procedures apply to administrative reviews included in this notice of 
initiation. Parties wishing to participate in any 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)).

Factual Information Requirements

    The Department's regulations identify 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) publicly available 
information to value factors under 19 CFR 351.408(c) or to measure the 
adequacy of remuneration under 19 CFR 351.511(a)(2); (iv) evidence 
placed on the record by the Department; and (v) evidence other than 
factual information described in (i)-(iv). These regulations require 
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 regulations, at 19 
CFR 351.301, also provide specific time limits for such factual 
submissions based on the type of factual information being submitted. 
Please review the final rule, available at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2013/1304frn/2013-08227.txt, prior to 
submitting factual information in this segment.
    Any party submitting factual information in an antidumping duty or 
countervailing duty proceeding must certify to the accuracy and 
completeness of that information.\8\ 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 or countervailing 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.\9\ The Department 
intends to reject factual submissions in any proceeding segments if the 
submitting party does not comply with applicable revised certification 
requirements.

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

Extension of Time Limits Regulation

    Parties may request an extension of time limits before a time limit 
established under Part 351 expires, or as otherwise specified by the 
Secretary. See 19 CFR 351.302. 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 
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 segments.
