On Wednesday, June 15, 2016, the US International Trade Commission (ITC) issued a request for public comments on the forms and data it will require petitioners to submit in the course of the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill (MTB) process. The Federal Register Notice can be found here, and the page on the ITC website can be found here.

This public comment period gives potential petitioners the opportunity to preview the type and form of data the ITC will require and to influence how the ITC will conduct the MTB process.  

For background on the MTB legislation, see our April 18 and May 11 Legal Updates.
