Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
Enforcement and Compliance (formerly Import Administration), International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce (the Department), hereby publishes this Final Rule not to apply the previously withdrawn regulatory provisions governing targeted dumping in less-than-fair-value investigations. Following the Court of International Trade's decision in Gold East (Jiangsu) Paper Co. v. United States, 918 F. Supp. 2d 1317 (Ct. Int'l Trade 2013), the Department sought clarification of the status of the previously withdrawn targeted dumping regulations and input on whether to reinstate the regulations or to continue to treat them as withdrawn. The Department has considered the comments received and, as explained below, determines to continue not to apply the withdrawn targeted dumping regulations in less-than-fair-value investigations. Rather, the Department will continue to determine whether to apply an alternative comparison method as appropriate based upon the particular facts in each case.
