[FR Doc. 2019–06218 Filed 3–29–19; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–DS–P DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE International Trade Administration Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce. SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) has received requests to conduct administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with January anniversary dates. In accordance with Commerce’s regulations, we are initiating those administrative reviews. DATES: Applicable April 1, 2019. 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. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background Commerce 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. With respect to the antidumping duty and countervailing duty orders on certain softwood lumber from Canada, the intiation of the antidumping duty and countervailing duty administrative reviews for these orders will be published in a separate initiation notice. All deadlines for the submission of various types of information, certifications, or comments or actions by Commerce discussed below refer to the VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:22 Mar 29, 2019 Jkt 247001 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 Commerce 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 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 Commerce’s service list. 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, except for the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from the People’s Republic of China (China), 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 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 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 has found that determinations concerning whether particular companies should be ‘‘collapsed’’ (e.g., 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 this 1 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011). PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 (e.g., investigation, administrative review, new shipper review or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to this 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 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 Commerce considered collapsing that entity, complete Q&V data for that collapsed entity must be submitted. Respondent Selection—Wooden Bedroom Furniture From China In the event that Commerce limits the number of respondents for individual examination in the antidumping duty administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture from China, for the purposes of this segment of the proceeding, i.e., the 2018 review period, Commerce 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. Commerce’s Q&V questionnaire along with certain additional questions will be available in a document package on Commerce’s website at https:// 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 Commerce by no later than 30 days after publication of this notice. Please be advised that due E:\FR\FM\01APN1.SGM 01APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 62 / Monday, April 1, 2019 / Notices to the time constraints imposed by the statutory and regulatory deadlines for antidumping duty administrative reviews, Commerce does not intend to grant any extensions for the submission of responses to the Q&V questionnaire. Welded Line Pipe From Korea— Correction to December Initiation Notice In the March 14, 2019, notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on welded line pipe from Korea covering the period 12/01/2017–11/30/2018,2 we inadvertently initiated on the following companies: BDP International, Inc. and Kelly Pipe Co., LLC. We note that the addresses provided for these companies are in the United States. Therefore, absent evidence that these companies produced and/or exported subject merchandise, they are not included in this review. Welded Line Pipe From Turkey— Correction to December Initiation Notice In the March 14, 2019, notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on welded line pipe from Turkey covering the period 12/01/2017–11/30/2018,3 Cayirova Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. was misspelled. Circular Welded Carbon-Quality Steel Pipe From the United Arab Emirates— Correction to December Initiation Notice In the March 14, 2019, notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe from the United Arab Emirates covering the period 12/01/2017–11/30/2018,4 we inadvertently initiated on the following companies: Al Jazeera Steel Products Co. SAOG (Al Jazeera), Prime Metal Corp. USA, and UTP Pipe Corp. USA. Although domestic interested parties requested a review of these companies, Al Jazeera notified Commerce that it is located in the Sultanate of Oman and is an Omani producer and exporter of certain welded carbon steel pipe, and the addresses provided for Prime Metal Corp. USA, and UTP Pipe Corp. USA are in the United States. Therefore, absent evidence that these companies produced and/or exported subject merchandise, we are not including them in this review. Further, Conares Metal Supply Ltd. was misspelled. Finally, we 84 FR 9297. id. 4 See id. inadvertently did not list K.D. Industries Inc. 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 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. Deadline for Particular Market Situation Allegation Section 504 of the Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015 amended the Act by adding the concept of particular market situation (PMS) for purposes of constructed value under section 773(e) of the Act.5 Section 773(e) of the Act states that ‘‘if a particular market situation exists such that the cost of materials and fabrication or other processing of any kind does not accurately reflect the cost of production in the ordinary course of trade, the administering authority may use another calculation methodology under this subtitle or any other calculation methodology.’’ When an interested party submits a PMS allegation pursuant to section 773(e) of the Act, Commerce will respond to such a submission consistent with 19 CFR 351.301(c)(v). If Commerce finds that a PMS exists under section 773(e) of the Act, then it will modify its dumping calculations appropriately. Neither section 773(e) of the Act nor 19 CFR 351.301(c)(v) set a deadline for the submission of PMS allegations and supporting factual information. However, in order to administer section 773(e) of the Act, Commerce must receive PMS allegations and supporting factual information with enough time to consider the submission. Thus, should an interested party wish to submit a PMS allegation and supporting new factual information pursuant to section 773(e) of the Act, it must do so no later than 20 days after submission of initial responses to section D of the questionnaire. Separate Rates In proceedings involving non-market economy (NME) countries, Commerce begins with a rebuttable presumption that all companies within the country are subject to government control and, thus, should be assigned a single 2 See 3 See VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:22 Mar 29, 2019 5 See Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015, Public Law 114–27, 129 Stat. 362 (2015). Jkt 247001 PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12201 antidumping duty deposit rate. It is Commerce’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, Commerce analyzes each entity exporting the subject merchandise. In accordance with the separate rates criteria, Commerce 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 China 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 Commerce’s website at https:// enforcement.trade.gov/download/prcwbf/index.html. For these administrative reviews, in order to demonstrate separate rate eligibility, Commerce 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 Commerce’s website 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 Commerce no later than 30 calendar days after publication of this Federal Register notice. For the antidumping duty administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture from China, Separate Rate Certifications, as well as a response to the Q&V questionnaire and the additional questions in the document package, are due to Commerce no later than 30 calendar days after publication of this Federal Register notice. The E:\FR\FM\01APN1.SGM 01APN1 12202 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 62 / Monday, April 1, 2019 / Notices deadline and requirement for submitting a Certification applies equally to NMEowned firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers who purchase and export subject merchandise to the United States. Entities that currently do not have a separate rate from a completed segment of the proceeding 6 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,7 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 Commerce’s website at http://enforcement.trade.gov/nme/nmesep-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 Applications are due to Commerce no later than 30 calendar days of publication of this Federal Register notice. For the antidumping duty administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture from China, 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 Commerce 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 foreignowned 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 China 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 Commerce’s website in order to receive consideration for separate-rate status. In other words, Commerce 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 China 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 Commerce’s website 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, 2020.

Duty Absorption Reviews 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 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.

(aka Beijing Dixon Ticonderoga Stationery Co., Ltd. and Beijing Dixon Stationery Co., Ltd.) (collectively Beijing Dixon). Commerce revoked the antidumping duty order on pencils exported by Beijing Dixon on July 18, 2013. See Certain Cased Pencils from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Determination To Revoke Order In Part; 2010–2011, 78 FR 42932 (July 18, 2013), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum.

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 Commerce’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 Commerce; 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.10 Parties are hereby reminded that revised certification requirements are in effect for company/ government officials as well as their representatives. All segments of any 10 See PO 00000 section 782(b) of the Act. Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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.11 Commerce 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, Commerce 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, Commerce 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 11 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 http://enforcement.trade.gov/tlei/notices/factual_ info_final_rule_FAQ_07172013.pdf.

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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:22 Mar 29, 2019 Jkt 247001 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 PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12207 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. Deadline for Particular Market Situation Allegation Section 504 of the Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015 amended the Act by adding the concept of particular market situation (PMS) for purposes of constructed value under section 773(e) of the Act.1 Section 773(e) of the Act states that ‘‘if a particular market situation exists such that the cost of materials and fabrication or other processing of any kind does not accurately reflect the cost of production in the ordinary course of trade, the administering authority may use another calculation methodology under this subtitle or any other calculation methodology.’’ When an interested party submits a PMS allegation pursuant to section 773(e) of the Act, Commerce will respond to such a submission consistent with 19 CFR 351.301(c)(v). If Commerce finds that a PMS exists under section 773(e) of the Act, then it will modify its dumping calculations appropriately. Neither section 773(e) of the Act nor 19 CFR 351.301(c)(v) set a deadline for the submission of PMS allegations and supporting factual information. However, in order to administer section 773(e) of the Act, Commerce must receive PMS allegations and supporting factual information with enough time to consider the submission. Thus, should an interested party wish to submit a PMS allegation and supporting new factual information pursuant to section 1 See Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015, Public Law 114–27, 129 Stat. 362 (2015).

countervailing duty orders and findings with January anniversary dates. 
In accordance with Commerce's regulations, we are initiating those 
administrative reviews.

DATES: Applicable April 1, 2019.

4735.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Commerce 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. 
With respect to the antidumping duty and countervailing duty orders on 
certain softwood lumber from Canada, the intiation of the antidumping 
duty and countervailing duty administrative reviews for these orders 
will be published in a separate initiation notice.
    All deadlines for the submission of various types of information, 
certifications, or comments or actions by Commerce 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 Commerce 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 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 Commerce's service list.

Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order 
Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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, except for the 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom 
furniture from the People's Republic of China (China), 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 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 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 has found that determinations concerning 
whether particular companies should be ``collapsed'' (e.g., 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 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 (e.g., investigation, administrative review, new shipper 
review or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to 
this 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 
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 Commerce considered collapsing that entity, complete Q&V data for 
that collapsed entity must be submitted.

Respondent Selection--Wooden Bedroom Furniture From China

    In the event that Commerce limits the number of respondents for 
individual examination in the antidumping duty administrative review of 
wooden bedroom furniture from China, for the purposes of this segment 
of the proceeding, i.e., the 2018 review period, Commerce 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. Commerce's Q&V questionnaire along 
with certain additional questions will be available in a document 
package on Commerce's website at https://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 Commerce by no later than 
30 days after publication of this notice. Please be advised that due

[[Page 12201]]

to the time constraints imposed by the statutory and regulatory 
deadlines for antidumping duty administrative reviews, Commerce does 
not intend to grant any extensions for the submission of responses to 
the Q&V questionnaire.

Welded Line Pipe From Korea--Correction to December Initiation Notice

    In the March 14, 2019, notice of initiation of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on welded line pipe from Korea 
covering the period 12/01/2017-11/30/2018,\2\ we inadvertently 
initiated on the following companies: BDP International, Inc. and Kelly 
Pipe Co., LLC. We note that the addresses provided for these companies 
are in the United States. Therefore, absent evidence that these 
companies produced and/or exported subject merchandise, they are not 
included in this review.

review of the antidumping duty order on welded line pipe from Turkey 
covering the period 12/01/2017-11/30/2018,\3\ Cayirova Boru Sanayi ve

Circular Welded Carbon-Quality Steel Pipe From the United Arab 
Emirates--Correction to December Initiation Notice

    In the March 14, 2019, notice of initiation of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on circular welded carbon-quality 
steel pipe from the United Arab Emirates covering the period 12/01/
2017-11/30/2018,\4\ we inadvertently initiated on the following 
companies: Al Jazeera Steel Products Co. SAOG (Al Jazeera), Prime Metal 
Corp. USA, and UTP Pipe Corp. USA. Although domestic interested parties 
requested a review of these companies, Al Jazeera notified Commerce 
that it is located in the Sultanate of Oman and is an Omani producer 
and exporter of certain welded carbon steel pipe, and the addresses 
provided for Prime Metal Corp. USA, and UTP Pipe Corp. USA are in the 
United States. Therefore, absent evidence that these companies produced 
and/or exported subject merchandise, we are not including them in this 
review. Further, Conares Metal Supply Ltd. was misspelled. Finally, we 
inadvertently did not list K.D. Industries Inc.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 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.

Deadline for Particular Market Situation Allegation

    Section 504 of the Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015 amended 
the Act by adding the concept of particular market situation (PMS) for 
purposes of constructed value under section 773(e) of the Act.\5\ 
Section 773(e) of the Act states that ``if a particular market 
situation exists such that the cost of materials and fabrication or 
other processing of any kind does not accurately reflect the cost of 
production in the ordinary course of trade, the administering authority 
may use another calculation methodology under this subtitle or any 
other calculation methodology.'' When an interested party submits a PMS 
allegation pursuant to section 773(e) of the Act, Commerce will respond 
to such a submission consistent with 19 CFR 351.301(c)(v). If Commerce 
finds that a PMS exists under section 773(e) of the Act, then it will 
modify its dumping calculations appropriately.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015, Public Law 114-
27, 129 Stat. 362 (2015).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Neither section 773(e) of the Act nor 19 CFR 351.301(c)(v) set a 
deadline for the submission of PMS allegations and supporting factual 
information. However, in order to administer section 773(e) of the Act, 
Commerce must receive PMS allegations and supporting factual 
information with enough time to consider the submission. Thus, should 
an interested party wish to submit a PMS allegation and supporting new 
factual information pursuant to section 773(e) of the Act, it must do 
so no later than 20 days after submission of initial responses to 
section D of the questionnaire.

Separate Rates

    In proceedings involving non-market economy (NME) countries, 
Commerce 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 Commerce'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, Commerce analyzes each entity exporting the subject 
merchandise. In accordance with the separate rates criteria, Commerce 
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 China 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 Commerce's website at https://enforcement.trade.gov/download/prc-wbf/index.html. For these administrative reviews, in order 
to demonstrate separate rate eligibility, Commerce 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 Commerce's website 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 Commerce no later than 30 
calendar days after publication of this Federal Register notice. For 
the antidumping duty administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture 
from China, Separate Rate Certifications, as well as a response to the 
Q&V questionnaire and the additional questions in the document package, 
are due to Commerce no later than 30 calendar days after publication of 
this Federal Register notice. The

[[Page 12202]]

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.
    Entities that currently do not have a separate rate from a 
completed segment of the proceeding \6\ 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,\7\ 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 
Commerce's website 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 
Applications are due to Commerce no later than 30 calendar days of 
publication of this Federal Register notice. For the antidumping duty 
administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture from China, 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 Commerce 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ 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.
    \7\ 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 China 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 Commerce's website in 
order to receive consideration for separate-rate status. In other 
words, Commerce 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 China 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 Commerce's website 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, 2020.

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

    \8\ The companies listed above were inadvertently omitted from 
the initiation notice that published on March14, 2019 (84 FR 9297).
    \9\ In the March 14, 2019, notice of initiation of the 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain cased 
pencils (pencils) from China covering the period 12/01/2017-11/30/
2018, we inadvertently initiated an administrative review of Beijing 
Fila Dixon Stationery Co., Ltd. (aka Beijing Dixon Ticonderoga 
Stationery Co., Ltd. and Beijing Dixon Stationery Co., Ltd.) 
(collectively Beijing Dixon). Commerce revoked the antidumping duty 
order on pencils exported by Beijing Dixon on July 18, 2013. See 
Certain Cased Pencils from the People's Republic of China: Final 
Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Determination 
To Revoke Order In Part; 2010-2011, 78 FR 42932 (July 18, 2013), and 
accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Duty Absorption Reviews

    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 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 Commerce'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

    Commerce'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 Commerce; 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.\10\ 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.\11\ Commerce 
intends to reject factual submissions in any proceeding segments if the 
submitting party does not comply with applicable revised certification 
requirements.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See section 782(b) of the Act.
    \11\ 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 
http://enforcement.trade.gov/tlei/notices/factual_info_final_rule_FAQ_07172013.pdf.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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, Commerce 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, Commerce 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

[[Page 12207]]

in a separate, stand-alone submission, and clarifies the circumstances 
under which Commerce 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.
    These initiations and this notice are in accordance with section 
751(a) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1675(a)) and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i).
