Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 34 / Friday, February 18, 2022 / Notices 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 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(m)(2), if there are companion AD and CVD orders covering the same merchandise from the same country of origin, the scope inquiry will be conducted on the record of the AD 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 companyspecific basis. For further information on procedures for filing information with Commerce through ACCESS and participating in scope inquiries, please refer to the Filing Instructions section of the Scope Ruling Application Guide, at https:// access.trade.gov/help/Scope_Ruling_ Guidance.pdf.

of Commerce (Commerce) finds that revocation of the antidumping duty
