Clearly, the accuracy and adequacy of the evidence is relevant to the investigating authorities' determination whether there is sufficient evidence to justify the initiation of an investigation. (...) The Larousse dictionary defines the word 'suffisant' ('sufficient') as '[q]ui correspond juste à ce qui est nécessaire' ('corresponding exactly to what is necessary'). The investigating authority must therefore determine whether it has before it the evidence necessary to initiate an investigation, i.e. whether an investigation appears to be justified, but also whether it has the information it needs to initiate its investigation. (...) An anti-dumping investigation is a process where certainty on the existence of all the elements necessary in order to adopt a measure is reached gradually as the investigation moves forward.
