Who may file. As provided for in the Act and in the Commission’s rules, any member of the public may file comments. The Commission is particularly interested in receiving comments from domestic producers about whether they produce an article that is identical to, or like or directly competitive with, an article that is the subject of a petition for a duty suspension or reduction, and, if they do, whether they object to such a duty suspension or reduction. The Commission is also interested in receiving comments from individuals and entities who believe that they would be a likely beneficiary of a particular duty suspension or reduction, or who, having been named in the petition or another comment as a likely beneficiary, wish to state that they would not be a likely beneficiary of a particular duty suspension or reduction. The Act defines ‘‘likely beneficiary’’ to mean ‘‘an individual or entity likely to utilize, or benefit directly from the utilization of, an article that is the subject of a petition for a duty suspension or reduction.’’ Petitioning parties may also submit comments. However, the Commission will not consider any comments that seek to amend a petition that the submitter previously filed. Method for filing. Comments concerning petitions must be filed electronically via the Commission’s designated secure web portal and in the format designated by the Commission in that portal. The portal contains a series of prompts and links that will assist persons in providing the required information. The Commission will not accept comments submitted in paper or in any other form or format. Comments, including any attachments thereto, must otherwise comply with the Commission’s rules as further explained in the Commission’s Handbook on MTB Filing Procedures. Persons seeking to comment on more than one petition must submit a separate comment for each petition. Persons filing comments should be prepared to complete their entire comment when they enter the portal because the portal will not allow them to edit, amend, or complete the comment at a later time. Accordingly, a person filing a comment should have all VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:39 Jan 09, 2020 Jkt 250001 required information in hand when they enter the portal to begin the formal filing process.

Consistent with the Act, the Commission will not accept comments filed after that time and date. Amendment and withdrawal of comments. The Commission’s secure web portal will not allow a person who has formally submitted a comment to amend that comment. Instead, that person must withdraw the original comment and file a new comment that incorporates the changes. The new comment must be filed within the 45day period designated for submitting comments (i.e., before 5:15 p.m. EST on February 24, 2020). Comments containing confidential business information. The portal will permit persons submitting comments to claim that certain information should be treated either as confidential business information or as information protected from disclosure under the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a, (e.g., a home address).
