Filing Information

proceedings, including copies of the pertinent statute and Commerce's 
regulations, Commerce's schedule for Sunset Reviews, a listing of past 
revocations and continuations, and current service lists, available to 
the public on Commerce's website at the following address: https://enforcement.trade.gov/sunset/. All submissions in these Sunset Reviews 
must be filed in accordance with Commerce's regulations regarding 
format, translation, and service of documents. These rules, including 
electronic filing requirements via Enforcement and Compliance's

available a public service list for these proceedings. Parties wishing 
to participate in any of these five-year reviews must file letters of 
appearance as discussed at 19 CFR 351.103(d). To facilitate the timely 
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

proprietary information and eligibility to receive access to business 
proprietary information under APO can be found at 19 CFR 351.304-306.

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

Commerce's regulations at 19 CFR part 351 for definitions of terms and
