SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
Background
    Commerce's procedures for the conduct of Sunset Reviews are set
forth in its Procedures for Conducting Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews of
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders, 63 FR 13516 (March 20,
1998) and 70 FR 62061 (October 28, 2005). Guidance on methodological or
analytical issues relevant to Commerce's conduct of Sunset Reviews is
set forth in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty
Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
Initiation of Review
    In accordance with section 751(c) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(c),
we are initiating the Sunset Reviews of the following antidumping and
countervailing duty order(s): \1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \1\ In the sunset initiation notice that published on April 1,
2019 (84 FR 12227) Commerce inadvertently omitted the word ``pipe''
from the antidumping and countervailing duty cases Circular Welded
Carbon Quality Steel Line Pipe from China. Circular Welded Carbon
Quality Steel Line Pipe is the correct case name. This serves as a
correction notice.

    On April 10, 2013, Commerce modified two regulations related to AD/
CVD proceedings: The definition of factual information (19 CFR
351.102(b)(21)), and the time limits for the submission of factual
information (19 CFR 351.301).\5\ Parties are advised to review the
final rule, available at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2013/1304frn/2013-08227.txt, prior to submitting factual information in these
segments. To the extent that other regulations govern the submission of
factual information in a segment (such as 19 CFR 351.218), these time
limits will continue to be applied. Parties are also advised to review
the final rule concerning the extension of time limits for submissions
in AD/CVD proceedings, available at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2013/1309frn/2013-22853.txt, prior to submitting factual information in
these segments.\6\

Letters of Appearance and Administrative Protective Orders
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.103(d), Commerce will maintain and make
available a public service list for these proceedings. Parties wishing
to participate in any of these five-year reviews must file letters of
appearance as discussed at 19 CFR 351.103(d)). To facilitate the timely
preparation of the public service list, it is requested that those
seeking recognition as interested parties to a proceeding submit an
entry of appearance within 10 days of the publication of the Notice of
Initiation. Because deadlines in Sunset Reviews can be very short, we
urge interested parties who want access to proprietary information
under administrative protective order (APO) to file an APO application
immediately following publication in the Federal Register of this
notice of initiation. Commerce's regulations on submission of
proprietary information and eligibility to receive access to business
proprietary information under APO can be found at 19 CFR 351.304-306.
Information Required From Interested Parties
    Domestic interested parties, as defined in section 771(9)(C), (D),
(E), (F), and (G) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.102(b), wishing to
participate in a Sunset Review must respond not later than 15 days
after the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of
initiation by filing a notice of intent to participate. The required
contents of the notice of intent to participate are set forth at 19 CFR
351.218(d)(1)(ii). In accordance with Commerce's regulations, if we do
not receive a notice of intent to participate from at least one
domestic interested party by the 15-day deadline, Commerce will
automatically revoke the order without further review.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \7\ See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If we receive an order-specific notice of intent to participate
from a domestic interested party, Commerce's regulations provide that
all parties wishing to participate in a Sunset Review must file
complete substantive responses not later than 30 days after the date of
publication in the Federal Register of this notice of initiation. The
required contents of a substantive response, on an order-specific
basis, are set forth at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3). Note that certain
information requirements differ for respondent and domestic parties.
Also, note that Commerce's information requirements are distinct from
the Commission's information requirements. Consult Commerce's
regulations for information regarding Commerce's conduct of Sunset
Reviews. Consult Commerce's regulations at 19 CFR part 351 for
definitions of terms and for other general information concerning
antidumping and countervailing duty proceedings at Commerce.
    This notice of initiation is being published in accordance with
section 751(c) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(c).
