Certification of Factual Information To Import Administration During Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Supplemental Interim Final Rule
The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is issuing this interim final rule to supplement an interim final rule published on February 10, 2011 (Interim Final Rule), which governs the certification of factual information submitted to the Department by a person or his or her representative during antidumping (``AD'') and countervailing duty (``CVD'') proceedings. This supplemental interim final rule concerns the certifications required of foreign governments. By this supplemental interim final rule, foreign governments will be allowed to submit certifications in either the format that was in use prior to the effective date of the Interim Final Rule or in the format provided in the Interim Final Rule. This supplemental interim final rule will remain in effect until such time as a final rule is published. All other aspects of the Interim Final Rule remain in effect and fully apply to all parties and their counsel. Companies should continue to use the company certification provided for in the Interim Final Rule. Representatives of companies or governments should continue to use the representative certification provided for in the Interim Final Rule. The Department is also requesting comments on the appropriateness of requiring foreign governments to submit the certification provided for in the Interim Final Rule, as discussed in more detail below. The Department is not soliciting comments with respect to any other issues concerning the Interim Final Rule as the deadline for such comments has expired.
