AGENCY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brenda E. Brown, 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. Background Each year during the anniversary month of the publication of an antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended investigation, an interested party, as defined in section 771(9) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), may request, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213, that the Department of Commerce (Commerce) conduct an administrative review of that antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended investigation. All deadlines for the submission of comments or actions by Commerce discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting date. Respondent Selection In the event Commerce limits the number of respondents for individual examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to requests made for the orders identified below, Commerce 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 release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (APO) to all parties having an APO within five days of publication of the initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 21 days of publication of the initiation Federal Register notice. Therefore, we encourage all parties interested in commenting on respondent selection to submit their APO applications on the date of publication of the initiation notice, or as soon thereafter as possible. Commerce invites comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within five days of placement of the CBP data on the record of the review. In the event Commerce decides it is necessary to limit individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act: In general, Commerce finds 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, Commerce will not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent selection phase of a 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 a review, if Commerce determined, or continued to treat, that company as collapsed with others, Commerce will assume that such companies continue to operate in the same manner and will collapse them for respondent selection purposes. Otherwise, Commerce will not collapse companies 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 a Quantity and Value 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 a proceeding where Commerce considered collapsing that entity, complete quantity and value data for that collapsed entity must be submitted. Deadline for Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), a party that requests 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 Commerce may extend this time if it is reasonable to do so. Determinations by Commerce to extend the 90-day deadline will be made on a case-by-case basis. Opportunity to Request a Review: Not later than the last day of October 2018,1 interested parties may request administrative review of the following orders, findings, or suspended investigations, with anniversary dates in October for the following periods: amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES Period of review Antidumping Duty Proceedings Australia: Hot-Rolled Steel Flat Products, A–602–809 .................................................................................................................

For both antidumping and countervailing duty reviews, the interested party must specify the individual producers or exporters covered by an antidumping finding or an antidumping or countervailing duty order or suspension agreement for which it is requesting a review. In addition, a domestic interested party or an interested party described in section 771(9)(B) of the Act must state why it desires the Secretary to review those particular producers or exporters. If the interested party intends for the Secretary to review sales of merchandise by an exporter (or a producer if that producer also exports merchandise from other suppliers) which was produced in more than one country of origin and each country of origin is subject to a separate order, then the interested party must state specifically, on an order-by-order basis, which exporter(s) the request is intended to cover. Note that, for any party Commerce was unable to locate in prior segments, Commerce will not accept a request for an administrative review of that party absent new information as to the party’s location. Moreover, if the interested party who files a request for review is VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:50 Sep 28, 2018 Jkt 247001 unable to locate the producer or exporter for which it requested the review, the interested party must provide an explanation of the attempts it made to locate the producer or exporter at the same time it files its request for review, in order for the Secretary to determine if the interested party’s attempts were reasonable, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.303(f)(3)(ii). As explained in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003), and NonMarket Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011), Commerce clarified its practice with respect to the collection of final antidumping duties on imports of merchandise where intermediate firms are involved. The public should be aware of this clarification in determining whether to request an administrative review of merchandise subject to antidumping findings and orders.2 Commerce no longer considers the non-market economy (NME) entity as an exporter conditionally subject to an antidumping duty administrative 2 See also the Enforcement and Compliance website at https://trade.gov/enforcement/.

However, in that situation, because no review of the NME entity was conducted, the NME entity’s entries were not subject to the review and the rate for the NME entity is not subject to change as a result of that review (although the rate for the individual exporter may change as a function of the finding that the exporter is part of the NME entity).

All requests must be filed electronically in Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS) on Enforcement and Compliance’s ACCESS website at https://access.trade.gov.5 Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(l)(i), a copy of each request must be served on the petitioner and each exporter or producer specified in the request. Commerce will publish in the Federal Register a notice of ‘‘Initiation of Administrative Review of Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation’’ for requests received by the last day of October 2018. If Commerce does not receive, by the last day of October 2018, a request for review of entries covered by an order, finding, or suspended investigation listed in this notice and for the period identified above, Commerce will instruct CBP to assess antidumping or countervailing duties on those entries at a rate equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping or countervailing duties required on those entries at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption and to continue to collect the cash deposit previously ordered. 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 period of review.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On June 11, 2018, Commerce published the Preliminary Results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on stilbenic optical brightening agents (OBAs from Taiwan.1 The administrative review covers one producer/exporter of the subject merchandise, TFM. We gave interested parties an opportunity to comment on the Preliminary Results but received none. Hence, these final results are unchanged from the Preliminary Results. Commerce conducted this review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1)(B) and (2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The stilbenic OBAs covered by this order are all forms (whether free acid or salt) of compounds known as triazinylaminostilbenes (i.e., all derivatives of 4,4’-bis [1,3,5- triazin-2yl] 2 amino-2,2’-stilbenedisulfonic acid), except for compounds listed in the following paragraph.

Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended 
Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review

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


FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brenda E. Brown, 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.

Background

    Each year during the anniversary month of the publication of an 
antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended 
investigation, an interested party, as defined in section 771(9) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), may request, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.213, that the Department of Commerce (Commerce) conduct 
an administrative review of that antidumping or countervailing duty 
order, finding, or suspended investigation.
    All deadlines for the submission of comments or actions by Commerce 
discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the 
applicable starting date.

Respondent Selection

    In the event Commerce limits the number of respondents for 
individual examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to 
requests made for the orders identified below, Commerce 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 release 
the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (APO) to all parties 
having an APO within five days of publication of the initiation notice 
and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 21 days 
of publication of the initiation Federal Register notice. Therefore, we 
encourage all parties interested in commenting on respondent selection 
to submit their APO applications on the date of publication of the 
initiation notice, or as soon thereafter as possible. Commerce invites 
comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within five 
days of placement of the CBP data on the record of the review.
    In the event Commerce decides it is necessary to limit individual 
examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under 
section 777A(c)(2) of the Act:
    In general, Commerce finds 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, Commerce will 
not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent selection phase of a 
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 a review, if Commerce 
determined, or continued to treat, that company as collapsed with 
others, Commerce will assume that such companies continue to operate in 
the same manner and will collapse them for respondent selection 
purposes. Otherwise, Commerce will not collapse companies 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 a Quantity and Value 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 a proceeding where Commerce considered collapsing 
that entity, complete quantity and value data for that collapsed entity 
must be submitted.

Deadline for Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), a party that requests 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 Commerce may extend this time if it is reasonable to do 
so. Determinations by Commerce to extend the 90-day deadline will be 
made on a case-by-case basis.
    Opportunity to Request a Review: Not later than the last day of 
October 2018,\1\ interested parties may request administrative review 
of the following orders, findings, or suspended investigations, with 
anniversary dates in October for the following periods:

countervailing duty reviews, the interested party must specify the 
individual producers or exporters covered by an antidumping finding or 
an antidumping or countervailing duty order or suspension agreement for 
which it is requesting a review. In addition, a domestic interested 
party or an interested party described in section 771(9)(B) of the Act 
must state why it desires the Secretary to review those particular 
producers or exporters. If the interested party intends for the 
Secretary to review sales of merchandise by an exporter (or a producer 
if that producer also exports merchandise from other suppliers) which 
was produced in more than one country of origin and each country of 
origin is subject to a separate order, then the interested party must 
state specifically, on an order-by-order basis, which exporter(s) the 
request is intended to cover.
    Note that, for any party Commerce was unable to locate in prior 
segments, Commerce will not accept a request for an administrative 
review of that party absent new information as to the party's location. 
Moreover, if the interested party who files a request for review is 
unable to locate the producer or exporter for which it requested the 
review, the interested party must provide an explanation of the 
attempts it made to locate the producer or exporter at the same time it 
files its request for review, in order for the Secretary to determine 
if the interested party's attempts were reasonable, pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.303(f)(3)(ii).
    As explained in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003), and Non-
Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping 
Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011), Commerce clarified its practice 
with respect to the collection of final antidumping duties on imports 
of merchandise where intermediate firms are involved. The public should 
be aware of this clarification in determining whether to request an 
administrative review of merchandise subject to antidumping findings 
and orders.\2\

    Commerce no longer considers the non-market economy (NME) entity as 
an exporter conditionally subject to an antidumping duty administrative 
reviews.\3\ Accordingly, the NME entity will not be under review unless 
Commerce specifically receives a request for, or self-initiates, a 
review of the NME entity.\4\ In administrative reviews of antidumping 
duty orders on merchandise from NME countries where a review of the NME 
entity has not been initiated, but where an individual exporter for 
which a review was initiated does not qualify for a separate rate, 
Commerce will issue a final decision indicating that the company in 
question is part of the NME entity. However, in that situation, because 
no review of the NME entity was conducted, the NME entity's entries 
were not subject to the review and the rate for the NME entity is not 
subject to change as a result of that review (although the rate for the 
individual exporter may change as a function of the finding that the 
exporter is part of the NME entity). Following initiation of an 
antidumping administrative review when there is no review requested of 
the

NME entity, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate entries for all 
exporters not named in the initiation notice, including those that were 
suspended at the NME entity rate.

    \4\ In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(1), parties should 
specify that they are requesting a review of entries from exporters 
comprising the entity, and to the extent possible, include the names 
of such exporters in their request.

    All requests must be filed electronically in Enforcement and 
Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic 
Service System (ACCESS) on Enforcement and Compliance's ACCESS website

351.303(f)(l)(i), a copy of each request must be served on the 
petitioner and each exporter or producer specified in the request.

    Commerce will publish in the Federal Register a notice of 
``Initiation of Administrative Review of Antidumping or Countervailing 
Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation'' for requests received 
by the last day of October 2018. If Commerce does not receive, by the 
last day of October 2018, a request for review of entries covered by an 
order, finding, or suspended investigation listed in this notice and 
for the period identified above, Commerce will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping or countervailing duties on those entries at a rate equal 
to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping or countervailing duties 
required on those entries at the time of entry, or withdrawal from 
warehouse, for consumption and to continue to collect the cash deposit 
previously ordered.
    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 period of review.
    This notice is not required by statute but is published as a 
service to the international trading community.

    Dated: September 25, 2018.
James Maeder,
Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations performing the duties of Deputy Assistant Secretary for 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.
