As part of the pilot program, the Commission “will identify, at institution, investigations that are likely to present a potentially dispositive issue, such as the existence of a domestic industry, importation, or standing.” Id. For those investigations, the Commission will direct the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) to expedite discovery and fact-finding, hold an evidentiary hearing, and issue an initial determination (ID) on the potentially dispositive issue(s) within 100 days of institution.
