Interim final rule; correction.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published an interim final rule on August 22, 2016, in the Federal Register, concerning investigation of claims of evasion of antidumping and countervailing duties. In accordance with section 421 of the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015, the rule amended the U.S. Customs and Border Protection regulations to set forth procedures for CBP to investigate claims of evasion of antidumping and countervailing duty orders. That document inadvertently omitted a comma in the definition of “evade or evasion.” This document corrects the text in that definition.
This correction is effective September 8, 2016.

On August 22, 2016, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published in the Federal Register (81 FR 56477) an Interim Final Rule (CBP Dec. 16-11) document, entitled “Investigation of Claims of Evasion of Antidumping and Countervailing Duties.” As published, the interim final regulation contains an error in the text of the definition of “evade or evasion” in § 165.1. The definition should be the same as the statutory definition found in section 421 of the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 (19 U.S.C. 1517(a)(5)), but a comma was inadvertently omitted.
The effective date for the interim final rule (CBP Dec. 16-11), published August 22, 2016 (81 FR 56477), remains August 22, 2016. Written comments must be submitted on or before October 21, 2016.
