    The Commission instituted this investigation effective June 23, 
2003, following receipt of a petition filed with the Commission and 
Commerce by Penn Specialty Chemicals, Inc., Plymouth Meeting, PA. The 
final phase of the investigation was scheduled by the Commission 
following notification of a preliminary determination by Commerce that 
imports of THFA 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 February 9, 2004 (69 FR 6005). 
Subsequent to Commerce's postponement of its final determination, the 
Commission gave notice of the
