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.

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.\6\

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
