Petition Format for Requesting Relief Under U.S. Antidumping Duty Law.
DOC has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 104-13 (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)).
Agency Form Number: ITA-357P.
OMB Number: 0625-0105.
Type of Request: Regular submission.
Burden: 2,200 hours.
Number of Respondents: 55.
Average Hours Per Response: 40.
Needs and Uses: The International Trade Administration, Import Administration, AD/CVD Enforcement, implements the U.S. antidumping and countervailing duty laws. Import Administration investigates allegations of unfair trade practices by foreign governments and producers and, in conjunction with the U.S. International Trade Commission, can impose duties on the product in question to offset the unfair practices. Form ITA-357P—Format for Petition Requesting Relief Under the U.S. Antidumping Duty Law—is designed for U.S. companies or industries that are unfamiliar with the antidumping law and the petition process. The Form is designed for potential petitioners that believe that an industry in the United States is being injured because a foreign competitor is selling a product in the United States at less than fair value. Since a variety of detailed information is required under the law before initiation of an antidumping duty investigation, the Form is designed to extract such information in the least burdensome manner possible.
Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit.
Frequency: On occasion.
Respondent's Obligation: Required to obtain or retain a benefit.
