Why do I need to file a Quantity and Value Questionnaire?

Quantity and Value Questionnaires are used by the U.S. Department of Commerce in its selection of mandatory respondents.  Mandatory respondents are the companies that must answer complicated and thorough questionnaires related to the companies sales and costs.  Any company that does not file a Quantity and Value Questionnaire is deemed "uncooperative."  Any company deemed "uncooperative" is then subject to "adverse facts available" ("AFA").  When a company is subject to AFA, the Department of Commerce can use adverse facts to determine that companies dumping margin.  The practical result of being subject to AFA is a very high dumping margin and an effective shutting down of the U.S. market to that company.

Because the consequences of not filing a Quantity and Value Questionnaire response are so severe, a company must seriously consider its commitment to the U.S. market before deciding not to file a response.
