On December 16, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') published a Federal Register notice announcing that it was considering revising its current practice with respect to the de facto criteria \1\ examined for purposes of determining whether to grant separate rate status to individual exporters in antidumping proceedings involving non-market economy (``NME'') countries. Through that notice, the Department invited the public to comment on the current test.\2\ Numerous parties filed comments in response, addressing the Department's current practice and proposing additional criteria for the Department to consider in its analysis.
