Homeland Security Department -- Technical Corrections to U.S. Customs and Border Protection Regulations2017-Jul-282017-15888U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) periodically reviews its regulations to ensure that they are current, correct, and consistent. Through this review process, CBP discovered some discrepancies. This document amends certain sections of title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations to remedy these discrepancies.
Homeland Security Department -- Regulatory Implementation of the Centers of Excellence and Expertise2016-Dec-202016-29719In 2012, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) developed a test to incrementally transition the operational trade functions that traditionally reside with port directors to the Centers of Excellence and Expertise (Centers). The purpose of the test was to broaden the ability of the Centers to make decisions by waiving certain identified regulations to the extent necessary to provide the Center directors, who manage the Centers, with the authority to make the decisions normally reserved for the port directors. At this time, CBP is prepared to end the test and establish the Centers as a permanent organizational component of the agency and to transition certain additional trade functions to the Centers. This rule amends the CBP regulations on an interim basis to implement this organizational change by: Defining the Centers and the Center directors; amending the definition for port directors to distinguish their functions from those of the Center directors; identifying the Center management offices; explaining the process by which importers will be assigned to Centers; providing the importer with an appeals process for its Center assignment; identifying the regulatory functions that will be transitioned from the port directors to the Center directors and those that will be jointly carried out by the port directors and the Center directors; and providing clarification in applicable regulations that payments and documents may continue to be submitted at the ports of entry or electronically.
Homeland Security Department -- Electronic Notice of Liquidation2016-Dec-122016-29656This document adopts as a final rule, with changes, proposed amendments to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations reflecting that official notice of liquidation, suspension of liquidation, and extension of liquidation will be posted electronically on the CBP Web site. The regulatory revisions reflect that official notice of liquidation will no longer be posted at the customhouses or stations and that official notices of suspension of liquidation and extension of liquidation will no longer be mailed. Additionally, this rule makes certain technical corrections to the CBP regulations to reflect statutory amendments.
Homeland Security Department -- Electronic Notice of Liquidation2016-Oct-142016-24858This document proposes to amend the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations to reflect that official notice of liquidation, suspension of liquidation, and extension of liquidation will be posted electronically on the CBP Web site. This document also proposes regulatory revisions to reflect that official notice of liquidation will no longer be posted at the customhouses or stations and that official notices of suspension of liquidation and extension of liquidation will no longer be mailed. Additionally, this document proposes to make certain technical corrections to the CBP regulations.
Commerce Department -- Modification of Regulations Regarding Basis for Normal Value2016-Aug-252016-20417The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') proposes to modify the regulations pertaining to the use of constructed value or third country sales for purposes of determining normal value, where the exporting country does not constitute a viable market, and is seeking comments from parties. This modification, if adopted, will specify that, where the exporting country does not constitute a viable market, the Department normally will calculate normal value based upon constructed value. This modification would invert the preexisting order of preference that, where the exporting country does not constitute a viable market, the Department normally calculates normal value based on sales in a viable third country. The Department proposes this modification in light of certain advantages of constructed value over third country sales, such as availability of cost of production information and comparability to U.S. prices.
Commerce Department -- Modification of Regulation Regarding Written Argument: Establishing Word Limits for Case and Rebuttal Briefs in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings2016-May-202016-11864The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') proposes to modify the regulation pertaining to written argument in antidumping and countervailing duty proceedings and is seeking comments from parties. This modification, if adopted, is intended to establish word limits for submission of case and rebuttal briefs. This action is necessary to streamline the process contained in the current regulation, to better align with current Department practices and to reduce the strain on resources.
Commerce Department -- Modification of Regulations Regarding Price Adjustments in Antidumping Duty Proceedings2016-Mar-242016-06698The Department of Commerce (the Department) is modifying its regulations pertaining to price adjustments in antidumping duty proceedings. These modifications clarify that the Department does not intend to accept a price adjustment that is made after the time of sale unless the interested party demonstrates, to the satisfaction of the Department, its entitlement to such an adjustment. The Department has further adopted in this final rule a non-exhaustive list of factors that it may consider in determining whether to accept a price adjustment that is made after the time of sale.
Commerce Department -- Enforcement and Compliance; Changes to Room Number of APO/Dockets Unit and Web Address for Electronic Filing System and ACCESS Handbook2015-Jun-252015-15544The International Trade Administration's Enforcement and Compliance publishes this rule to change the room number of the Administrative Protective Order and Dockets Unit (APO/Dockets Unit). This rule also changes the web address of Enforcement and Compliance's electronic filing system, Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). Finally, this rule changes the web address for the location of the ACCESS Handbook on Electronic Filing. Consistent with this action, this rule makes appropriate conforming changes in the regulations.
Commerce Department -- Modification of Regulations Regarding Price Adjustments in Antidumping Duty Proceedings2014-Dec-312014-30664The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') proposes to modify two regulations pertaining to price adjustments in antidumping duty proceedings and is seeking comments from parties. These modifications, if adopted, are intended to clarify that the Department generally will not consider a price adjustment that reduces or eliminates a dumping margin unless the party claiming such price adjustment demonstrates, to the satisfaction of the Department, through documentation that the terms and conditions of the adjustment were established and known to the customer at the time of sale.
Commerce Department -- Enforcement and Compliance; Change of Electronic Filing System Name2014-Nov-202014-27530The International Trade Administration's Enforcement and Compliance Unit publishes this rule to announce a change in the name of Enforcement and Compliance's electronic filing system from ``IA ACCESS'' to ``ACCESS.'' Consistent with this action, this rule makes appropriate conforming changes in part 351 of title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations. This action is being taken to ensure that the regulations reflect the change in nomenclature from Import Administration to Enforcement and Compliance.
Commerce Department -- Modification of Regulations Regarding Time Limits for Submission of Information Pertaining to Requests for Sampling in Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews2013-Nov-192013-27442The Department of Commerce (the Department) proposes to modify its regulations to establish time limits for the submission of requests for sampling, and comments on sampling in antidumping (AD) administrative reviews. The modifications to the time limits, if adopted, will more clearly prescribe the time for filing requests for sampling in AD administrative reviews, and the time for filing comments and rebuttal comments with respect to such requests. The modifications will provide sufficient opportunity for the Department to determine whether it will employ sampling in selecting respondents for individual examination when conducting administrative reviews in which a request for sampling is timely submitted.
Commerce Department -- Extension of Time Limits2013-Sep-202013-22853The Department of Commerce (the Department) is modifying its regulation concerning the extension of time limits for submissions in antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) proceedings. The modification clarifies that parties may request an extension of time limits before any time limit established under Part 351 expires. This modification also requires that an extension request must be made in a separate, stand-alone submission, and clarifies the circumstances under which the Department will grant untimely-filed requests for the extension of time limits.
Commerce Department -- Use of Market Economy Input Prices in Nonmarket Economy Proceedings2013-Aug-022013-18547The Department of Commerce (``Department'') is modifying its regulation which states that the Department normally will use the price that a nonmarket economy (``NME'') producer pays to a market economy supplier when a factor of production is purchased from a market economy supplier and paid for in market economy currency, in the calculation of normal value (``NV'') in antidumping proceedings involving NME countries. The rule establishes a requirement that the input at issue be produced in one or more market economy countries, and a revised threshold requiring that ``substantially all'' (i.e., 85 percent) of an input be purchased from one or more market economy suppliers before the Department uses the purchase price paid to value the entire factor of production. The Department is making this change because it finds that a market economy input price is not the best available information for valuing all purchases of that input when market economy purchases of an input do not account for substantially all purchases of the input.
Commerce Department -- Certification of Factual Information To Import Administration During Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings2013-Jul-172013-17045The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is amending the regulation 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. The amended regulation is intended to strengthen the current certification requirements. For example, the amendment revises the certification in order to identify to which document the certification applies, to identify to which segment of an AD/CVD proceeding the certification applies, to identify who is making the certification, and to indicate the date on which the certification was made. In addition, the amendments are intended to ensure that parties and their counsel are aware of potential consequences for false certifications.
Commerce Department -- Regulation Strengthening Accountability of Attorneys and Non-Attorney Representatives Appearing Before the Department2013-Apr-172013-09041The Department of Commerce (the Department) is amending its regulations to add a subsection that strengthens the accountability of attorneys and non-attorney representatives who appear in proceedings before the Import Administration (IA). The rule provides that both attorneys and non- attorney representatives will be subject to disciplinary action for misconduct based upon good cause. The rule will assist the Department in maintaining the integrity of its proceedings by deterring misconduct by those who appear before it in antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) proceedings.
Commerce Department -- Definition of Factual Information and Time Limits for Submission of Factual Information2013-Apr-102013-08227The Department of Commerce (the Department) is modifying its regulations, which define ``factual information'' and establish time limits for the submission of factual information in antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) proceedings. The modifications to the definition of factual information more clearly describe the types of information that can be submitted by a person or placed on the record by the Department in a segment of the proceeding. The modifications to the time limits enable the Department to efficiently determine the type of information being submitted and whether it is timely filed; they also ensure that the Department has sufficient opportunity to review submissions of factual information.
Commerce Department -- Modification of Regulation Regarding the Extension of Time Limits2013-Jan-162013-00833The Department of Commerce (the Department) proposes to modify its regulation concerning the extension of time limits for submissions in antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) proceedings. The modification, if adopted, will clarify that parties may request an extension of time limits before any time limit established under this part expires. This modification will also clarify under which circumstances the Department will grant untimely- filed requests for the extension of time limits.
Homeland Security Department -- Technical Corrections to U.S. Customs and Border Protection Regulations2012-Dec-102012-29632U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) periodically reviews its regulations to ensure that they are current, correct, and consistent. Through this review process, CBP has discovered a number of discrepancies. This document amends various sections of title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19 CFR) to correct those discrepancies.
Commerce Department -- Modification of Regulations Regarding the Definition of Factual Information and Time Limits for Submission of Factual Information2012-Jul-102012-16715The Department of Commerce (the Department) proposes to modify its regulations which define ``factual information'' and establish time limits for the submission of factual information in antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) proceedings. The modifications to the definition of factual information, if adopted, will more clearly describe the types of information that can be submitted by a person or placed on the record by the Department in a segment of a proceeding. The modifications to the time limits in which such information may be submitted or placed on the record, if adopted, will enable the Department to efficiently determine what type of information is being submitted and whether it is timely filed, and to provide sufficient opportunity for the Department to review submissions of factual information.
Commerce Department -- Proposed Modification to Regulation Concerning the Use of Market Economy Input Prices in Nonmarket Economy Proceedings2012-Jun-282012-15436The Department of Commerce (``Department'') proposes to modify its regulation which states that the Department normally will use the price that a nonmarket economy (``NME'') producer pays to a market economy supplier when a factor of production is purchased from a market economy supplier and paid for in market economy currency, in the calculation of normal value (``NV'') in antidumping proceedings involving NME countries. The rule, if adopted, would establish (1) a requirement that the input at issue be produced in one or more market economy countries, and (2) a revised threshold requiring that ``substantially all'' of an input be purchased from one or more market economy suppliers before the Department would use the purchase price paid to value the entire factor of production. Through this proposed modification, the Department is announcing its proposed definition of ``substantially all'' to be 85 percent of the total purchased volume of the particular input. The Department invites public comment on this proposed change.
Commerce Department -- Regulation Strengthening Accountability of Attorneys and Non-Attorney Representatives Appearing Before the Department2012-Jun-262012-15381The Department of Commerce (the Department) proposes to amend its regulations to add a subsection that strengthens the accountability of attorneys and non-attorney representatives who appear in proceedings before the Import Administration (IA). If this proposed rule is implemented, the Department will continue its long-standing practice of permitting attorneys and non-attorney representatives to appear before IA. The proposed rule provides that both attorneys and non-attorney representatives will be subject to disciplinary action for misconduct based upon good cause. The proposed rule will assist the Department in maintaining the integrity of its proceedings by deterring misconduct by those who appear before it in antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) proceedings. The Department is requesting comments on the proposed rule as discussed in more detail below.
Commerce Department -- Modification to Regulation Concerning the Revocation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders2012-May-212012-12257The Department of Commerce (the Department) is amending its regulations concerning the revocation of antidumping and countervailing duty orders in whole or in part, and the termination of suspended antidumping and countervailing duty investigations. This rule eliminates the provision for revocation of an antidumping or countervailing duty order with respect to individual exporters or producers based on those individual exporters or producers having received antidumping rates of zero for three consecutive years, or countervailing duty rates of zero for five consecutive years.
Commerce Department -- Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification2012-Feb-142012-3290The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is modifying its methodology regarding the calculation of the weighted-average dumping margins and antidumping duty assessment rate in certain segments of antidumping duty proceedings (hereinafter, ``Final Modification for Reviews''). Currently, in a review of an antidumping duty order conducted under 19 CFR 351.213 (administrative review), 351.214 (new shipper review), and 351.215 (expedited antidumping review) (collectively ``reviews''), the Department usually makes comparisons between transaction-specific export prices and average normal values and does not offset the amount of dumping that is found with the results of comparisons for which the transaction-specific export price, or constructed export price, exceeds normal value. Several World Trade Organization (``WTO'') dispute settlement reports have found that the United States' application of these methodologies was inconsistent with its WTO obligations. Under this Final Modification for Reviews, the Department will calculate weighted- average margins of dumping and antidumping duty assessment rates in a manner which provides offsets for non-dumped comparisons while using monthly average-to-average (``A-A'') comparisons in reviews, paralleling the WTO-consistent methodology that the Department applies in original investigations. The Department is also modifying its practice in five-year (``sunset'') reviews, such that it will not rely on weighted-average dumping margins that were calculated using the methodology found to be WTO-inconsistent. The schedule for implementing these changes is set forth in the ``Timetable'' section in SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION.
Commerce Department -- Modification of Regulations Regarding the Practice of Accepting Bonds During the Provisional Measures Period in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Investigations2011-Oct-032011-24666The Department of Commerce (the Department) is amending its regulations governing the effect of an affirmative preliminary determination in antidumping or countervailing duty proceedings to establish that the provisional measures will normally take the form of a cash deposit. Requiring that provisional measures will normally take the form of a cash deposit will help to strengthen the administration of the nation's antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) laws by making importers directly responsible for the payment of AD and CVD duties.
Commerce Department -- Certification of Factual Information To Import Administration During Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Supplemental Interim Final Rule2011-Sep-022011-22344The 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.
Commerce Department -- Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures2011-Jul-062011-16352The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is amending its regulations governing the submission of information to the Department in antidumping duty (``AD'') and countervailing duty (``CVD'') proceedings. These amendments will incorporate changes resulting from the Department's implementation of an electronic filing and documents management program. More detailed procedures for electronic filing are set forth in a document separate from the regulations that is entitled ``IA ACCESS Handbook On Electronic Filing Procedures'' (``IA ACCESS Handbook''), which the Department has published on its Web site at http://iaaccess.trade.gov.
Commerce Department -- Modification of Regulations Regarding the Practice of Accepting Bonds During the Provisional Measures Period in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Investigations2011-Apr-262011-10045The Department of Commerce (the Department) proposes to modify its regulation that states that provisional measures during an antidumping or countervailing duty investigation usually take the form of a bonding requirement. The modification, if adopted, would establish that the provisional measures during an antidumping or countervailing duty investigation will normally take the form of a cash deposit.
Commerce Department -- Proposed Modification to Regulation Concerning the Revocation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders2011-Mar-212011-6019The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') proposes to modify our regulations which govern the revocation of antidumping and countervailing duty orders, in whole or in part, and the termination of suspended antidumping and countervailing duty investigations. The modification, if adopted, would eliminate the provision for revocation of an antidumping or countervailing duty order with respect to individual exporters or producers based on those individual exporters or producers having received antidumping margins of zero for three consecutive years, or countervailing duty rates of zero for five consecutive years.
Commerce Department -- Certification of Factual Information to Import Administration During Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Interim Final Rule2011-Feb-102011-2761The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is amending its regulation 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. The amendments are intended to strengthen the current certification requirements. For example, these amendments revise the certification in order to identify to which document the certification applies, to identify to which segment of an AD/CVD proceeding the certification applies, to identify who is making the certification, and to indicate the date on which the certification was made. In addition, the amendments are intended to ensure that parties and their counsel are aware of potential consequences for false certifications. The Department is also requesting comments on this interim final rule.
Commerce Department -- Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings2010-Dec-282010-32632The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is requesting comments regarding the calculation of the weighted average dumping margin and antidumping duty assessment rate in certain antidumping duty proceedings. Currently, in a review of an antidumping duty order conducted under 19 CFR 351.213 (administrative review), 351.214 (new shipper review), and 351.215 (expedited antidumping review) (collectively ``reviews''), the Department usually makes comparisons between transaction-specific export prices and average normal values and does not offset any dumping that is found with the results of comparisons for which the transaction-specific export price exceeds the average normal value. In addition, in the most recent original antidumping duty investigation in which the Department calculated the weighted average margins of dumping using transaction-to-transaction comparisons, the Department did not grant offsets for non-dumped comparisons. Several World Trade Organization (``WTO'') dispute settlement reports have found that the United States application of these methodologies was inconsistent with our WTO obligations. In response to these reports, the Department proposes modification of its methodologies, including changes to certain provisions of the Department's regulations.
Commerce Department -- Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures2010-Jul-282010-18389The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') proposes to amend its regulations governing the submission of information to the Department in antidumping duty (``AD'') and countervailing duty (``CVD'') proceedings to adopt rules of practice and procedure that will incorporate changes resulting from the Department's implementation of an electronic filing and documents management program. More detailed procedures for electronic filing will be set forth in a document separate from the regulations that will be entitled ``IA ACCESS Handbook On Electronic Filing Procedures'' (``IA ACCESS Handbook''), which the Department intends to publish on its Web site at http:// www.trade.gov/ia by the effective date of the Final Rule.
Homeland Security Department -- Courtesy Notice of Liquidation2010-Mar-162010-5635This document proposes to amend title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) pertaining to the method by which CBP issues courtesy notices of liquidation. Courtesy notices of liquidation provide informal, advanced notice of the liquidation date and are not required by statute. Currently, CBP provides an electronic and a paper courtesy notice for importers of record whose entry summaries are electronically filed in the Automated Broker Interface (ABI). In an effort to streamline the notification process and reduce printing and mailing costs, CBP proposes to discontinue mailing paper courtesy notices of liquidation to importers of record whose entry summaries are filed in ABI.

Commerce Department -- Import Administration, Withdrawal of Regulations Governing the Treatment of Subcontractors (“Tolling” Operations)2008-Mar-288-6499Import Administration issues this interim final rule for the purpose of withdrawing its regulation governing the treatment of tollers or subcontractors for purposes of determining export price, constructed export price, fair value, and normal value in antidumping duty proceedings.
Commerce Department -- Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Documents Submission Procedures; APO Procedures2008-Jan-2208-172The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is amending its regulations in antidumping (``AD'') and countervailing duty (``CVD'') proceedings governing information submitted to the Department and administrative protective orders in order to improve the Department's procedures and provide clarification to some aspects of the Department's regulations. Specifically, the Department is amending its regulations as follows: To reflect a transfer in the function of receiving submissions filed in AD/CVD proceedings from the Central Records Unit to the Administrative Protective Order (``APO'') Unit, and to change the name of the APO Unit to APO/Dockets Unit; to reflect the fact that the Central Records Unit has moved to Room 1117 of the Herbert C. Hoover Building; to reflect a transfer in the function of maintaining public service lists from the Central Records Unit to the APO/Dockets Unit; to update the definition of ``Customs Service'' to reflect the reorganization of the Executive Branch; to clarify that documents filed with the Department will only be time stamped when appropriate, for example, when an interested party submits a request for treatment as a voluntary respondent; to clarify when an APO will be placed on the record with respect to new shipper reviews, applications for scope rulings and changed circumstances reviews; to clarify when a party must serve business proprietary information already on the administrative record to new authorized applicants to the APO; to require parties to file a formal letter of appearance to request placement on the public service list of any segment of an AD/CVD proceeding, either as a cover letter to the APO application or as a separate document; and to clarify when a party is to be considered an ``interested party'' for the purposes of the APO. Finally, the Department is amending its short form application for access under an APO (Form ITA-367).
Commerce Department -- Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Documents Submission Procedures; APO Procedures; Proposed Rule2007-Jan-0806-9969The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') proposes to amend its regulations in antidumping (``AD'') and countervailing duty (``CVD'') proceedings governing information submitted to the Department and administrative protective orders in order to improve the Department's procedures and provide clarification to some aspects of the Department's regulations.

The regulations amend the ``waiver'' provisions which govern treatment of interested parties who do not provide a substantive response to the Department's notice of initiation of a sunset review and clarify the basis for parties' participation in a public hearing in an expedited sunset review.
Commerce Department -- Certification of Factual Information To Import Administration During Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings2004-Sep-2204-21209The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is proposing to amend a regulation, which governs the certification of factual information submitted to the Department by a person or their representative during antidumping and countervailing duty proceedings. The proposed amendments are intended to strengthen the current certification requirements, so that it is clear what has been certified, by whom and when, and so that parties and their counsel are aware of the potential consequences of false certifications.
Treasury Department -- Distribution of Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset to Affected Domestic Producers2001-Sep-2101-23562This document amends the Customs Regulations to implement the Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset Act of 2000, by prescribing the administrative procedures, including the time and manner, under which antidumping and countervailing duties assessed on imported products would be distributed to affected domestic producers as an offset for certain qualifying expenditures. This distribution to the affected producers is known as the continued dumping and subsidy offset.
Treasury Department -- Distribution of Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset to Affected Domestic Producers2001-Jun-2601-16020This document proposes to amend the Customs Regulations, to implement the Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset Act of 2000, by prescribing the administrative procedures, including the time and manner, under which antidumping and countervailing duties assessed on imported products would be distributed to affected domestic producers as an offset for certain qualifying expenditures. This distribution to the affected producers is known as the continued dumping and subsidy offset.
Environmental Protection Agency -- Establishment of Alternative Compliance Periods Under the Anti-Dumping Program2000-Sep-0800-22809The Clean Air Act as amended in 1990 (``the Act'') directs the Environmental Protection Agency (``EPA'' or ``we'') to issue regulations requiring reformulated gasoline for major metropolitan areas with the worst ozone air pollution problems. Other areas with ozone levels exceeding the public health standards may voluntarily choose to participate in the federal reformulated gasoline program. In order to ensure that the ``dirtier'' components of reformulated gasoline are not dumped into gasoline sold in areas not participating in the reformulated gasoline program (``conventional gasoline'' areas), the Act requires EPA to ensure that the quality of conventional gasoline does not fall below 1990 levels. The Act also mandates that we establish an appropriate compliance period or compliance periods associated with meeting the anti-dumping standards. Under the existing regulations for reformulated gasoline and anti-dumping, the compliance period is one year. However, we believe that in certain limited circumstances a longer conventional gasoline anti-dumping may be appropriate on a temporary basis. Such an alternative compliance period would be only appropriate for a refiner who produces conventional gasoline and who is starting up a refinery and facing significant hardship in complying with the anti-dumping statutory baseline NO<INF>X</INF> standard. Moreover, we believe that it would be appropiate for any refinery subject to an alternative compliance period to meet additional substantive and administrative requirements to ensure that there is no environmental detriment as a result of the longer averaging period. This notice of proposed rulemaking sets forth proposed procedures for establishing alternative compliance periods under the anti-dumping program and the proposed standards applicable to refineries operating under such compliance periods.

Such an alternative compliance period is only appropriate for a refiner who produces conventional gasoline and who is starting up a refinery and facing significant hardship in complying with the anti-dumping statutory baseline NO<INF>X</INF> standard. Moreover, we believe that it is appropriate for any refinery subject to an alternative compliance period to meet additional substantive and administrative requirements to ensure that there is no environmental detriment as a result of the longer averaging period. This direct final rule sets forth procedures for establishing alternative compliance periods under the anti-dumping program and the standards applicable to refineries operating under such compliance periods.
