Agriculture Department -- Dairy Tariff-Rate Quota Import Licensing Program2016-Dec-062016-28384This final rule amends the Dairy Tariff-Rate Quota Import Licensing Program to clarify that for the purposes of the Dairy Tariff- Rate Quota Import Licensing Program, U.S. Customs and Border Protection import entries submitted electronically, as well as on paper, are acceptable.
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.

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.

Agriculture Department -- Dairy Tariff-Rate Quota Import Licensing Program2015-Jul-272015-18122This final rule amends the regulation that provides for the issuance of licenses to import certain dairy articles under tariff-rate quotas (TRQs) as set forth in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States. The three most significant changes to the rule are to suspend for an additional seven years the historical license reduction provision which was set to expire with the beginning of quota year 2016; to modify procedures for collecting licensing fees in order to better align the fee collection to the costs of administering the program; and to exclusively use electronic communications in the application, reporting and payment processes. The expected outcome from these changes is to allow license holders to adjust to changing market conditions impacting the dairy sector; increase the Department's ability to more closely align cost recovery with the actual costs of administering the program; and allow the Department to reduce lag times, minimize paper files, and increase the efficiency of the program operations.
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).

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.
Agriculture Department -- Dairy Tariff-Rate Import Quota Licensing Program2014-Dec-232014-29807This proposed rule would amend the regulation that provides for the issuance of licenses to import certain dairy articles under tariff-rate quotas (TRQs) as set forth in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States. The three most significant changes to the rule would be to suspend for an additional seven years, the historical license reduction provision, which currently expires with the beginning of quota year 2016; to modify procedures for collecting licensing fees in order to better align the fee collection to the costs of administering the program; and to exclusively use electronic communications in the application, reporting and payment processes. The expected outcome from the implementation of the proposed changes would be to allow license holders to adjust to changing market conditions impacting the dairy sector; increase the Department's ability to more closely align cost recovery with the actual costs of administering the program; and allow the Department to reduce lag times, minimize paper files, and increase the efficiency of the program operations.

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.
Agriculture Department -- Adjustment of Appendices to the Dairy Tariff-Rate Import Quota Licensing Regulation for the 2013 Tariff-Rate Quota Year2013-Aug-012013-18568This document sets forth the revised appendices to the Dairy Tariff-Rate Import Quota Licensing Regulation for the 2013 quota year reflecting the cumulative annual transfers from Appendix 1 to Appendix 2 for certain dairy product import licenses permanently surrendered by licensees or revoked by the Licensing Authority.

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.

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 -- 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.
Agriculture Department -- Dairy Product Mandatory Reporting2012-Feb-152012-3566This final rule adopts changes to Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) regulations as required by section 273(d) of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 (the Act) as amended by the Mandatory Price Reporting Act of 2010. The amendment to the Act requires the Secretary of Agriculture (Secretary) to establish an electronic reporting system for certain manufacturers of dairy products to report sales information for a mandatory dairy product reporting program. The amendment further states that the Secretary shall publish the information obtained for the preceding week not later than 3 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday of each week.
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.

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 -- 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.

The amendment further stated that the Secretary shall publish the information obtained for the preceding week not later than 3 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday of each week. This proposed rule offers procedures for the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) to implement the amendment to section 273(d) the Act and announces the intention of AMS to request approval by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) of associated information collection requirements.

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.

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.
Agriculture Department -- Dairy Import Licensing Program2010-Dec-082010-30714This final rule amends the historical license reduction provisions of the Dairy Tariff-Rate Import Quota Licensing Program 7 CFR part 6, by suspending the provisions with respect to the reduction of historical licenses based on surrenders of unused quantities until 2016.
