(a) Upon receipt of advice from the Commissioner of Customs pursuant to $ 14.6(e), if the Commissioner's “Withholding of Appraisement Notice" shall specify that the proper basis of comparison for fair value purposes is exporter's sales price or if that notice does not specify the appropriate basis of comparison for fair value purposes, each appraiser shall withhold appraisement as to such merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, on any date after the 120th day before the question of dumping was raised by or presented to the Secretary of the Treasury or his delegate. If the Commissioner's “Withholding of Appraisement Notice,” including any supplementary notice, shall specify that the proper basis of comparison for fair value purposes is purchase price, the appraiser shall withhold appraisement as to such merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, after the date of publication of the “Withholding of Appraisement Notice." Each appraiser shall notify the collector and importer immediately of each lot of merchandise with respect to which appraisement is so withheld. Upon advice of a finding made in accordance with $ 14.8 (b), the appraiser shall give immediate notice thereof to the collector and the importer when any shipment subject thereto is imported after the date of the finding and information is not on hand for completion of appraisement of such shipment. Customs Form 6459 shall be used to notify the collector and importer whenever appraisement is withheld under this paragraph.

(b) If, before a finding of dumping has been made, or before a case has been closed without a finding of dumping, the appraiser is satisfied by information furnished by the importer or otherwise that the purchase price or exporter's sales price, in respect of any shipment, is not less than foreign market value (or, in the absence of such value, than the constructed value), he shall so advise the Commissioner and request authorization to proceed with his appraisement of that shipment in the usual manner.

(c) If a finding of dumping has been made, the appraiser shall require the importer or his agent to file a certificate of the importer on the appropriate one of the following forms. A separate certificate shall be required for each shipment.
