SUMMARY:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On July 31, 2013, the Department received an adequate substantive response from domestic interested party Mid Continent Nail Corporation (“Petitioner”) within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i).[2] We received no responses from respondent interested parties. As a result, the Department conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of the order, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2). As explained in the memorandum from the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, the Department has exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from October 1, through October 16, 2013.[3] Therefore, all deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by 16 days. If the new deadline falls on a non-business day, in accordance with the Department's practice, the deadline will become the next business day.[4] The revised deadline for the final results of this sunset review is now November 14, 2013.

Scope of the Order

The merchandise covered by the order includes certain steel nails having a shaft length up to 12 inches. Certain steel nails subject to the order are currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (“HTSUS”) subheadings 7317.00.55, 7317.00.65 and 7317.00.75. While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.

For a full description of the scope, see “Certain Steel Nails From the People's Republic of China: Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of Expedited First Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order,” from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Ronald K. Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Start Printed Page 69645Compliance, dated concurrently with this notice (“Issues and Decision Memorandum”).
