respondent, as soon as possible and in no event later than the production date, identify
and describe each such document or class of documents, as well as the alleged basis
for not producing it, with sufficient specificity to allow a meaningful challenge to any
such withholding.

documents but has information about where such documents may be located, the
Commission requests that the respondent provide such information as soon as possible
and in no event later than the production date.

If the respondent has any questions or concerns about the interpretation or scope of
