ITC DETERMINES ON REMAND
THAT STATIC RANDOM ACCESS MEMORY SEMICONDUCTORS FROM TAIWAN
DO NOT INJURE U.S. INDUSTRY

The United States International Trade Commission (ITC) today made a negative determination in connection with the second remand of its final antidumping investigation of imports of static random access memory semiconductors from Taiwan.

The Commission found on remand that an industry in the United States is not materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports of static random access memory semiconductors from Taiwan that the U.S. Department of Commerce determined were sold in the United States at less than fair value. Vice Chairman Marcia E. Miller and Commissioners Jennifer A. Hillman, Stephen Koplan, and Deanna Tanner Okun voted in the negative. Chairman Lynn M. Bragg voted in the affirmative. Commissioner Thelma J. Askey did not participate in this vote.

The case involving this product was remanded to the ITC by the U.S. Court of International Trade (CIT) on June 30, 1999, and again on April 11, 2000. The ITC had previously made an affirmative final determination in April 1998.

The ITC's remand determination will be delivered to the CIT by June 26, 2000.

The ITC's public report Static Random Access Memory Semiconductors from Taiwan (Views on Second Remand) (Inv. No. 731-TA-762 (Final) (Second Remand), USITC Publication 3312, June 2000) will contain the views of the Commission. Copies of the report are expected to be available after July 17, 2000, by calling 202-205-1809 or from the Office of the Secretary, 500 E Street SW, Washington, DC 20436. Requests may also be faxed to 202-205-2104.
