The full version of the official notice of initiation is available here.
Relevance of interested parties participation
Active participation of importers, exporters and any other interested parties in the sunset review may be decisive to ensure a more favorable final determination to the interested party in question. Interested parties can submit their applications to participate in the proceeding until July 10, 2023, provided that they demonstrate the extent to what they are affected by the measure in force.
Furthermore, interested parties may request the initiation of a public interest investigation to be conducted in parallel to the antidumping investigation. Within the scope of this related investigation, the authority will analyze, based on economic information and studies submitted by the parties, whether the extension of the antidumping duty in force is a measure that serves the public interest or whether its suspension or alteration would better serve such a purpose.
