Notification to Interested Parties

    This list of scope ruling applications is not an identification of 
scope inquiries that have been initiated. In accordance with 19 CFR 
351.225(d)(1), if Commerce has not rejected a scope ruling application 
nor initiated the scope inquiry within 30 days after the filing of the 
application, the application will be deemed accepted and a scope 
inquiry will be deemed initiated the 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\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(d)(2), within 30 days 
after the filing of a scope ruling application, if Commerce 
determines that it intends to address the scope issue raised in the 
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.
    \5\ See Notice of Clarification: Application of ``Next Business 
Day'' Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to 
the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).
    \6\ This structure maintains the intent of the applicable 
regulation, 19 CFR 351.225(d)(1), to allow day 30 and day 31 to be 
separate business days.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 company-specific 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. Interested parties, apart from the scope 
ruling applicant, who wish to participate in a scope inquiry and be 
added to the public service list for that segment of the proceeding 
must file an entry of appearance in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.103(d)(1) and 19 CFR 351.225(n)(4). Interested parties are advised 
to refer to the case segment in ACCESS as well as 19 CFR 351.225(f) for 
further information on the scope inquiry procedures, including the 
timelines for the submission of comments.
    Please note that this notice of scope ruling applications filed in 
AD and CVD proceedings may be published before any potential 
initiation, or after the initiation, of a given scope inquiry based on 
a scope ruling application identified in this notice. Therefore, please 
refer to the case segment on ACCESS to determine whether a scope ruling 
application has been accepted or rejected and whether a scope inquiry 
has been initiated.
    Interested parties who wish to be served scope ruling applications 
for a particular AD or CVD order may file a request to be included on 
the annual inquiry service list during the anniversary month of the 
publication of the AD or CVD order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(n)
