Document Number: 2013-27719
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-11-19
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On July 1, 2013, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') initiated the first sunset reviews of the antidumping duty (``AD'') orders on sodium nitrite from Germany and the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). Based on the notice of intent to participate and adequate substantive response filed by the domestic interested party, and the lack of response from any respondent interested party, the Department conducted expedited (120-day) sunset reviews of these AD orders, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2). As a result of these sunset reviews, the Department finds that revocation of the AD orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, at the levels indicated in the ``Final Results of Sunset Reviews'' section of this notice.

Document Number: 2013-27577
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-11-19
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce (the Department) preliminarily determines that diffusion-annealed, nickel-plated flat-rolled steel products (certain nickel-plated, flat-rolled steel) from Japan are being, or are likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value, as provided in section 733(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). The estimated weighted-average dumping margins are listed in the ``Preliminary Determination'' section of this notice. Interested parties are invited to comment on this preliminary determination. Pursuant to requests from interested parties, we are postponing for 60 days the final determination and extending provisional measures from a four-month period to not more than six months. Accordingly, we intend to make our final determination not later than 135 days after publication of this preliminary determination in the Federal Register.
Modification of Regulations Regarding Time Limits for Submission of Information Pertaining to Requests for Sampling in Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews
Document Number: 2013-27442
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-11-19
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce (the Department) proposes to modify its regulations to establish time limits for the submission of requests for sampling, and comments on sampling in antidumping (AD) administrative reviews. The modifications to the time limits, if adopted, will more clearly prescribe the time for filing requests for sampling in AD administrative reviews, and the time for filing comments and rebuttal comments with respect to such requests. The modifications will provide sufficient opportunity for the Department to determine whether it will employ sampling in selecting respondents for individual examination when conducting administrative reviews in which a request for sampling is timely submitted.
