following day--day 31.\4\ Commerce's practice generally dictates that 
where a deadline falls on a weekend, Federal holiday, or other non-
business day, the appropriate deadline is the next business day.\5\ 
Accordingly, if the 30th day after the filing of the application falls 
on a non-business day, the next business day will be considered the 
``updated'' 30th day, and if the application is not rejected or a scope 
inquiry initiated by or on that particular business day, the 
application will be deemed accepted and a scope inquiry will be deemed 
initiated on the next business day which follows the ``updated'' 30th 
day.\6\

application in another segment of the proceeding (such as a 
circumvention inquiry under 19 CFR 351.226 or a covered merchandise 
inquiry under 19 CFR 351.227), it will notify the applicant that it 
will not initiate a scope inquiry, but will instead determine if the 
product is covered by the scope at issue in that alternative 
segment.

Day'' Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to

proceeding. Further, please note that pursuant to 19 CFR 351.225(m)(1), 
Commerce may either apply a scope ruling to all products from the same 
country with the same relevant physical characteristics, (including 
chemical, dimensional, and technical characteristics) as the product at 
issue, on a country-wide basis, regardless of the producer, exporter, 
or importer of those products, or on a company-specific basis.
