The Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (“BIS”) issued a Federal Register notice on May 26, 2020, inviting comments from interested parties on BIS’s Section 232 national security investigation on imports of mobile cranes. Comments on the mobile cranes investigation may be submitted on or before July 10, 2020 and rebuttal comments on or before August 10, 2020. We strongly encourage clients to review the notices to determine whether or not their imports will be affected. All written comments with respect to the mobile cranes investigation must be filed through the Federal eRulemaking Portal at http://www.regulations.gov/ under docket number BIS-2020-0009. Parties should anticipate submitting comments in the investigation if their products are associated with imported mobile cranes. Please see our previous post announcing the start of the investigation for more details.
