INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION

[Investigation No. 731-TA-1013 (Final)]

 
Saccharin From China

Determination

    On the basis of the record \1\ developed in the subject 
investigation, the United States International Trade Commission 
(Commission) determines, pursuant to section 735(b) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)) (the Act), that an industry in the United 
States is materially injured by reason of imports from China of 
saccharin, provided for in subheading 2925.11.00 of the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States, that have been found by the 
Department of Commerce (Commerce) to be sold in the United States at 
less than fair value (LTFV).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The record is defined in sec. 207.2(f) of the Commission's 
Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 207.2(f)).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Background

    The Commission instituted this investigation effective July 11, 
2002, following receipt of a petition filed with the Commission and 
Commerce by PMC Specialties Group, Inc., Cincinnati, OH. The final 
phase of the investigation was scheduled by the Commission following 
notification of a preliminary determination by Commerce that imports of 
saccharin from China were being sold at LTFV within the meaning of 
section 733(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673b(b)). Notice of the 
scheduling of the final phase of the Commission's investigation and of 
a public hearing to be held in connection therewith was given by 
posting copies of the notice in the Office of the Secretary, U.S. 
International Trade Commission, Washington, DC, and by publishing the 
notice in the Federal Register of January 14, 2003 (68 FR 1860).\2\ The 
hearing was held in Washington, DC, on May 15, 2003, and all persons 
who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by 
counsel.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ On February 11, 2003, Commerce published notice of 
postponement of its final determination (68 FR 6885) and extended 
the due date to May 12, 2003. Subsequently, the Commission published 
notice of a revised schedule for the final phase of its 
investigation (68 FR 8783, February 25, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Commission transmitted its determination in this investigation 
to the Secretary of Commerce on June 25, 2003. The views of the 
Commission are contained in USITC Publication 3606 (June 2003), 
entitled Saccharin From China: Investigation No. 731-TA-1013 (Final).

    By order of the Commission.
