This is a reminder to all filers who report ADD/CVD entries through ABI.
If the individual case being reported is bondable, a surety code is required to identify the surety who will provide the bond as required by T.D. 85-145.
For ABI filers, the surety code is reported in the 35 record in position 49-51 of this record. Whenever the antidumping or countervailing bond indicator of "1" is transmitted in position 14 of the 35 record (indicating a bondable antidumping case) or in position 37 of the 35 record (indicating a bondable countervailing duty case), a surety code is also required.
Questions concerning this should be directed to the
