(C) Countervailing measure investigation. Source : U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration. 22. During the 2001-02 period, four new suspension agreements were concluded, all leading to the suspension of AD investigations. However, in two of these cases, the investigations were continued and the agreements were terminated upon negative final USITC determinations. In the case of tomatoes from Mexico, the suspended investigation was resumed following termination of a suspension agreement, and a new suspension agreement was subsequently concluded. During the same period, an agreement with respect to the importation of cut-to-length carbon steel plate with the Russian Federation was amended. .66 Administrative reviews 23. There are two aspects to administrative reviews of anti-dumping and countervailing duty orders: to determine the amount of duty to be finally assessed on imports during the review period; and to re-calculate the amount of net countervailable subsidy or dumping margin for merchandise under the outstanding CV or AD duty order, to establish the deposit rate for ensuing periods. Administrative reviews may be requested by interested parties every 12 months. If no review is requested for a particular 12-month period, final duties are assessed in the amount deposited for that period. In 2000-02, 241 administrative reviews of AD duties were completed and 29 involving CV duty orders (Table III.7). Table III.7 65 19 U.S.C. 1673c(d) and 1673c(d). 66 In Suspension of Investigation A-821-808, Russian CTL steel plate producers agreed, starting 23 January 2003, to eliminate completely sales at less than fair value, Federal Register Vol. 68 FR 3859, 27 January 2003.

Sunset reviews 24. The sunset provisions embodied in Section 751 (c) of the U.S. Tariff Act of 1930, as amended by the URAA, require that the DOC and the USITC conduct "sunset reviews" no later than five years after an AD or CV duty order is issued, to determine whether its revocation would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping or countervailable subsidies (DOC) and of material injury to the industry (USITC). Sunset reviews are order-specific (country- and product-specific). Suspension agreements are also subject to sunset review. Reviews are initiated by the DOC not later than 30 days before the fifth anniversary of the date of publication of an order, they are usually completed within 240 days of initiation for full reviews and within 120 days for expedited reviews. 67 Under the Sunset Regulations, the United States treats as de minimis any countervailable subsidy rate that is less than 0.5%; for initial investigations the rate is 1% (following Article 11.9 of the SCM Agreement).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
