The dumping investigation period in this case is from January 1, 2018 to December 31, and the damage investigation period is from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2018. All interested parties are required to submit the completed answer sheets, comments and relevant evidential materials as required by the investigation authority within 23 working days. The 23 working days for the companies involved in the case and the government of the country involved as listed in Article 23 of the case-filing announcement will be counted from 5 days after the investigation agency sends the questionnaire, and other interested parties will start to count 5 days after the date of the announcement. In both cases, the deadline for submitting materials is 14:00 on the deadline day. If final anti-dumping measures are taken, Mexico can retroactively levy duties on products imported for consumption within 90 days before the date of the interim measures.
