(1) Notify each affected business of the suit within 10 days after service of the complaint upon EPA;
(2) Where necessary to preparation of EPA's defense, call upon each affected business to furnish assistance; and
(3) Not oppose a motion by any affected business to intervene as a party to the suit under rule 24(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
(c) EPA will defend its final confidentiality determination, but EPA expects the affected business to cooperate to the fullest extent possible in this defense.
