    On August 22, 2016, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
published in the Federal Register (81 FR 56477) an Interim Final Rule 
(CBP Dec. 16-11) that amended the CBP regulations setting forth 
procedures for CBP to investigate claims of evasion of antidumping and 
countervailing duty orders in accordance with section 421 of the Trade 
Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015. The document solicited 
public comments in the interim rule, and requested that submitted 
comments be received by CBP on or before October 21, 2016.

Extension of Comment Period

    With the goal of establishing the most effective and transparent 
procedures as possible for CBP to employ to investigate claims of 
evasion of antidumping and countervailing duty orders, CBP believes 
that it is very important to have as much public participation as 
possible in the formulation of the final rule that establishes those 
procedures for CBP. Therefore, CBP has decided to allow additional time 
for the public to submit comments on the final rule. Accordingly, the 
comment period is extended to December 20, 2016.
