Comments—Deadline, Format and Number of Copies

The Department is extending the deadline for submitting rebuttal comments by two weeks, to May 4, 2006. The Department will consider all rebuttal comments received before the close of the comment period. Rebuttal comments received after the end of the comment period will be considered, if possible, but their consideration cannot be assured.

Parties wishing to file rebuttal comments should submit a signed original and six copies of each set of comments, along with a cover letter identifying the commenter's name and address. To help simplify the processing and distribution of the rebuttal comments, the Department requests that a submission in electronic form accompany the required paper copies. Comments filed in electronic form should be on CD-ROM in either WordPerfect format or a format that the WordPerfect program can convert into WordPerfect.

The Department will not accept comments accompanied by a request that a part or all of the material be treated confidentially because of its business proprietary nature or for any other reason. The Department will return such comments and materials to the persons submitting the comments and will not consider them in connection with this proceeding.

Comments received on CD-ROM will be made available to the public on the Web at the following address:​. In addition, upon request, the Department will make comments filed in electronic form available to the public on CD-ROMs (at cost) with specific instructions for accessing compressed data (if necessary). Any questions concerning file formatting, document conversion, access on the Web, or other electronic filing issues should be addressed to the IA Webmaster, at (202) 482-0866 or via e-mail at
