Sunset Reviews (19 CFR 351.218) and Sunset Policy Bulletin, the 
Department's schedule of Sunset Reviews, case history information 
(i.e., previous margins, duty absorption determinations, scope

the Department's sunset Internet website at the following address: 
``https://ia.ita.doc.gov/sunset/.'' All submissions in these Sunset 
Reviews must be filed in accordance with the Department's regulations

These rules can be found at 19 CFR 351.303.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.103(c), the Department will maintain and

timely preparation of the service list(s), it is requested that those 
seeking recognition as interested parties to a proceeding contact the 
Department in writing within 10 days of the publication of the Notice 
of Initiation.
    Because deadlines in Sunset Reviews can be very short, we urge 
interested parties to apply for access to proprietary information under 
administrative protective order (``APO'') immediately following 
publication in the Federal Register of the notice of initiation of the 
sunset review. The Department'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.

participate in these Sunset Reviews 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 the Department'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, the Department will

automatically revoke the orders without further review. See 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(iii).

from a domestic interested party, the Department's regulations provide 
that all parties wishing to participate in the 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 the Department's information requirements are distinct 
from the Commission's information requirements. Please consult the 
Department's regulations for information regarding the Department's 
conduct of Sunset Reviews.\1\ Please consult the Department's 
regulations at 19 CFR Part 351 for definitions of terms and for other 
general information concerning antidumping and countervailing duty 
proceedings at the Department.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ In comments made on the interim final sunset regulations, a 
number of parties stated that the proposed five-day period for 
rebuttals to substantive responses to a notice of initiation was 
insufficient. This requirement was retained in the final sunset 
regulations at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(4). As provided in 19 CFR 
351.302(b), however, the Department will consider individual 
requests for extension of that five-day deadline based upon a 
showing of good cause.
