supplied in a specific form. The Communique Amending the Communique
on Regulation of Right to Access File and Preservation of Trade

Official Gazette number 29610 on 31 January 2016, entering into

well as identification of the documents which will be examined.
From now on, the Investigation Committee will evaluate these
applications, based specifically on the information submitted in
the form (Article 2 of the Communique).
