Again, because the draft guideline applies to some veterinary biological products regulated by APHIS under the Virus-Serum-Toxin Act—particularly with regard to the data elements that are required to be included in the Adverse Event Report— we are requesting comments on its provisions so that we may include any relevant public input on the draft in the Agency’s comments to the VICH Steering Committee. The two draft guidelines reflect, respectively, current APHIS thinking on terminology used for the identification of adverse events, and data elements to be used for the submission and exchange of spontaneous Adverse Event Reports between marketing authorization holders (licensees/ permittees) and regulatory authorities concerning the clinical effects of marketed veterinary medicinal products. In accordance with the VICH process, once a final draft of each document has been approved, the guideline will be recommended for adoption by the regulatory bodies of the European Union, Japan, and the United States. As with all VICH documents, each final guideline will not create or confer any rights for or on any person and will not operate to bind APHIS or the public. Further, the VICH guidelines specifically provide for the use of alternative approaches if those approaches satisfy applicable regulatory requirements. Ultimately, APHIS intends to consider the VICH Steering Committee’s final guidelines for use by U.S. veterinary biologics licensees, permittees, and applicants. In addition, we may consider the use of each final guideline as the basis for proposed amendments to the regulations in 9 CFR chapter I, subchapter E (Viruses, Serums, Toxins, and Analogous Products; Organisms and Vectors). Because we anticipate that applicable provisions of the final versions of ‘‘Pharmacovigilance of Veterinary Medicinal Products: Management of Adverse Event Reports’’ and ‘‘Pharmacovigilance of Veterinary Medicinal Products: Data Elements for Submission of Adverse Event Reports’’ may be introduced into APHIS’ veterinary biologics regulatory program in the future, we encourage your comments on the draft guidelines.

Background

    On April 2, 2005, the Government of Ukraine's Ministry of Economy 
and European Integration requested that the Department of Commerce 
conduct a review of Ukraine's status as a non-market economy (``NME'') 
country within the context of a changed circumstances review of the 
antidumping duty order on carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod from 
Ukraine. In response to this request, the Department initiated a 
changed circumstances review in order to determine whether Ukraine 
should continue to be treated as an NME country for purposes of the 
antidumping law, pursuant to sections 751(b) and 771(18)(C)(ii) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). See Initiation of a 
Changed Circumstances Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Carbon 
and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Ukraine, 70 FR 21396 (April 26, 
2005). In its notice of initiation, the Department invited public 
comment on Ukraine's ongoing economic reforms and received extensive 
initial and rebuttal comments on July 11, 2005, and August 31, 2005, 
respectively. These comments have been made available to the public at 
the Import Administration Web site at the following address: http://
ia.ita.doc.gov/. In addition, the Department has compiled and analyzed 
information regarding Ukrainian economic reforms from independent 
third-party sources that it commonly cites for market economy status 
decisions.

Opportunity for Public Comment and Extension of Final Results

    In order to consider any economic and institutional developments 
that occurred in Ukraine since the closure of the record in this review 
that may be of importance to the Department's decision, the Department 
is inviting further public comment on reforms in Ukraine. Specifically, 
the Department invites comment on such developments in relation to the 
factors listed in section 771(18)(B) of the Act, which the Department 
must take into account in making a market/non-market economy decision:
    (i) The extent to which the currency of the foreign country is 
convertible into the currency of other countries;
    (ii) The extent to which wage rates in the foreign country are 
determined by free bargaining between labor and management;
    (iii) The extent to which joint ventures or other investments by 
firms of other foreign countries are permitted in the foreign country;
    (iv) The extent of government ownership or control of the means of 
production;
    (v) The extent of government control over allocation of resources 
and over price and output decisions of enterprises; and
    (vi) Such other factors as the administering authority considers 
appropriate.
    In order to provide opportunity to consider the comments, the 
Department is extending the deadline for the final results of this 
changed circumstance review by thirty days, making the new deadline 
February 16, 2006.
