Responses to Notices of Institution for Five-Year Reviews Published in the Federal Register on January 2, 2019

Due to the lapse in appropriations as of 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, December 22, 2018, the USITC ceased regular operations.  As a result, the Commission shut down its investigative activities for the duration of the absence of appropriation.  These activities included, but were not limited to, proceedings conducted under the authority of Title VII of the Tariff Act of 1930, including antidumping and countervailing duty investigations and reviews; investigations and ancillary proceedings conducted under the authority of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930; and investigations conducted under the authority of section 332 of the Tariff Act of 1930.

As of Saturday, January 26, 2019, the Commission received funding through February 15, 2019 and the period of the shutdown ended.  The Commission resumed operations on the first business day, Monday, January 28, 2019, but did NOT accept document filings until Wednesday, January 30, 2019, as it rescheduled active cases and previously scheduled deadlines affected by the shutdown.  While EDIS went live on Wednesday, January 30, 2019, the Commission requested that parties in specific proceedings wait until revised deadlines were scheduled to file documents in a proceeding. 

The institution notices for the following five-year reviews, which were published in the Federal Register on January 2, 2019, indicate that the deadline for responses to the notices is Friday, February 1, 2019. The notices also indicate that entries of appearance were due to be filed with the Secretary to the Commission no later than 21 days after publication of the notice in the Federal Register.

Following notification by Commerce on February 1, 2019, confirming that the initiation date of these five-year reviews is January 1, 2019, the Commission is currently accepting filings for responses to the notices of institution listed below, as well as entries of appearance, beginning on Friday, February 1, 2019. However, given the timing of this notification, the Commission will accept responses to the notices of institution and entries of appearance for the five-year reviews listed below as being timely filed through Wednesday, February 6, 2019.
