Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 174 / Monday, September 9, 2019 / Notices 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there will be no assessment of antidumping or countervailing duties on entries of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption during the relevant provisional-measures ‘‘gap’’ period, of the order, if such a gap period is applicable to the POR. jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:43 Sep 06, 2019 Jkt 247001 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.19 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.20 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 CBP data; and (5) Q&V questionnaires. Under certain circumstances, Commerce may elect to specify a different time limit by which extension requests will 19 See section 782(b) of the Act.

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 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: For more than two decades, the internet and associated information technologies have driven unprecedented innovation, economic value, and improvement in social services. Many of these benefits are fueled by data about individuals that flow through a complex ecosystem. As a result of this complexity, individuals may not understand the potential consequences for their privacy as they interact with systems, products, and services. At the same time, organizations may not realize the full extent of these consequences for individuals, for society, or for their enterprises, which can affect their reputations, their bottom line, and their future prospects for growth. In response to these risks, and in order to further technological innovation and increase trust in information systems, NIST has VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:43 Sep 06, 2019 Jkt 247001 undertaken development of the voluntary NIST Privacy Framework: A Tool for Improving Privacy through Enterprise Risk Management. The Preliminary Draft, as presented, is intended to provide an organizational tool for: • Building customer trust by supporting ethical decision-making in product and service design or deployment that optimizes beneficial uses of data while minimizing adverse consequences for individuals’ privacy and society as a whole; • Helping to fulfill current compliance obligations, as well as future-proofing products and services in a changing technological and policy environment; and • Facilitating communication about privacy practices with customers, assessors, and regulators. It is designed to enable organizations to manage privacy risks through a prioritized, flexible, outcome-based, and cost-effective approach that is compatible with existing legal and regulatory regimes in order to be most useful to a broad range of organizations and enable widespread adoption. It is modeled after the structure of the Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity to facilitate the complementary use of both frameworks.1 The Preliminary Draft was developed through a public review and comment process that included information collected through a Request for Information (RFI), 83 FR 56824 (November 14, 2018), and a series of public workshops and webinars. Comments received in response to the RFI are available at https:// www.nist.gov/privacy-framework/ request-information.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: For more than two decades, the internet and 
associated information technologies have driven unprecedented 
innovation, economic value, and improvement in social services. Many of 
these benefits are fueled by data about individuals that flow through a 
complex ecosystem. As a result of this complexity, individuals may not 
understand the potential consequences for their privacy as they 
interact with systems, products, and services. At the same time, 
organizations may not realize the full extent of these consequences for 
individuals, for society, or for their enterprises, which can affect 
their reputations, their bottom line, and their future prospects for 
growth. In response to these risks, and in order to further 
technological innovation and increase trust in information systems, 
NIST has undertaken development of the voluntary NIST Privacy 
Framework: A Tool for Improving Privacy through Enterprise Risk 
Management.
    The Preliminary Draft, as presented, is intended to provide an 
organizational tool for:
     Building customer trust by supporting ethical decision-
making in product and service design or deployment that optimizes 
beneficial uses of data while minimizing adverse consequences for 
individuals' privacy and society as a whole;
     Helping to fulfill current compliance obligations, as well

and policy environment; and
     Facilitating communication about privacy practices with 
customers, assessors, and regulators.
    It is designed to enable organizations to manage privacy risks 
through a prioritized, flexible, outcome-based, and cost-effective 
approach that is compatible with existing legal and regulatory regimes 
in order to be most useful to a broad range of organizations and enable 
widespread adoption. It is modeled after the structure of the Framework 
for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity to facilitate the 
complementary use of both frameworks.\1\
