The U.S. Commerce Department’s Import Administration has released the second phase of its electronic document filing system for antidumping and countervailing duty proceedings.
The AD/CVD Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS) Release 2 gives interested parties and the general public online access to all public versions of documents submitted to the proceeding record since IA ACCESS was initially launched in August 2011.
“The increased transparency that this Internet-based system offers will allow the Import Administration to significantly expand its contact with the global trade community,” Assistant Secretary for Import Administration Paul Piquado said. “We will be able to more efficiently interact with interested parties and other stakeholders that are involved or interested in our AD/CVD cases, but not located in the Washington, D.C. area.”
The Import Administration began a three-phase roll-out of the IA ACCESS system in August 2011. Release 1 required parties to electronically submit public and proprietary documents for the record of AD/CVD proceedings. Release 2 makes appropriate documents available online to the public. Scheduled for 2013, Release 3 will make proprietary documents available to authorized external parties.
