---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ In comments made on the interim final sunset regulations, a 
number of parties stated that the proposed five-day period for

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 to extend that five-day deadline based upon a showing of
