[Investigation No. 731-TA-1033 (Preliminary)]

Hydraulic Magnetic Circuit Breakers From South Africa


    On the basis of the record \1\ developed in the subject 
investigation, the United States International Trade Commission 
(Commission) determines, pursuant to section 733(a) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1673b(a)) (the Act), that there is no reasonable 
indication that an industry in the United States is materially injured 
or threatened with material injury, or that the establishment of an 
industry in the United States is materially retarded, by reason of 
imports from South Africa of hydraulic magnetic circuit breakers, 
provided for in subheadings 8535.21.00 and 8536.20.00 of the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States, that are alleged to be sold in 
the United States at less than fair value (LTFV).

Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 207.2(f)).
