Antidumping Methodologies in Proceedings Involving Non-Market Economy Countries: Surrogate Country Selection and Separate Rates
The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') requests public comment on two aspects of its non-market economy (``NME'') methodology in antidumping proceedings. First, the Department seeks comment on certain aspects of the methodology by which it selects an economically comparable surrogate market economy country for the NME country under investigation or review. Second, the Department is requesting comment on the methodology under which individual NME exporters can demonstrate independence from government control of their export activities and thereby qualify for separate rate status.
