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 Commerce's regulations, if we do

    If we receive an order-specific notice of intent to participate 
from a domestic interested party, Commerce's regulations provide that 
all parties wishing to participate in a 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 Commerce's information requirements are distinct from 
the ITC's information requirements. Consult Commerce's regulations for 
information regarding Commerce's conduct of Sunset Reviews. Consult 
Commerce's regulations at 19 CFR part 351 for definitions of terms and 
for other general information concerning antidumping and countervailing 
duty proceedings at Commerce.
    This notice of initiation is being published in accordance with 
section 751(c) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(c).
