On September 30, 2013, the Commission posted a notification on its Web site, that if the Commission did not receive funding by 8:45 a.m. on October 1, 2013, the agency would shut down its investigative activities for the duration of the absence of an appropriation. The notice stated that if a shutdown occurred, the schedules and deadlines for all investigative and pre-institution activities would be tolled by the number of days for which the government was shut down. The notice further indicated that the Commission would reconsider schedules after resuming operations.
The Commission was unable to operate from October 1, 2013 to October 16, 2013 because of an absence of appropriations. Accordingly, all statutory deadlines pertaining to activities conducted under the authority of Title VII of the Tariff Act of 1930 (including antidumping and countervailing duty investigations and reviews) will be tolled 16 calendar days. Additionally, the Commission is revising its schedules for individual proceedings to reflect the tolling of deadlines, which, unless otherwise indicated, have been extended 16 calendar days. Individual case schedules will be revised and posted on the Commission's Web site (www.usitc.gov) and separate Federal Register notices will be issued where appropriate.
The Commission's new scheduled dates for conferences in preliminary phase investigations and submission of postconference briefs are as follows:
