Commerce finds that the petitioner filed the Petition on behalf of the domestic industry, because the petitioner is an interested party, as defined in section 771(9)(E) of the Act.5 Commerce also finds that the petitioner demonstrated sufficient industry support for the initiation of the requested AD investigation.6 Period of Investigation Because the Petition was filed on November 2, 2021, the period of investigation (POI) for this investigation is October 1, 2020, through September 30, 2021, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.204(b)(1). Scope of the Investigation The product covered by this investigation is SAP from Korea. For a full description of the scope of this investigation, see the appendix to this notice. Comments on the Scope of the Investigation On November 4, 2021, and on November 10, 2021, Commerce requested further information and clarification from the petitioner regarding the proposed scope to ensure that the scope language in the Petition is an accurate reflection of the products for which the domestic industry is seeking relief.7 On November 9 and 12, 2021, the petitioner revised the scope.8 The description of the merchandise covered by this investigation, as described in the appendix to this notice, reflects these clarifications. As discussed in the Preamble to Commerce’s regulations, we are setting aside a period of time for interested parties to raise issues regarding product coverage (i.e., scope).9 Commerce will consider all comments received from interested parties and, if necessary, will consult with interested parties prior to the issuance of the preliminary determinations.
