SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Background. On May 7, 2004, the Commission determined that the 
domestic interested party group response to its notice of institution 
(69 FR 4979, February 2, 2004) of the subject five-year review was 
adequate and that the respondent interested party group response was 
inadequate. The Commission did not find any other circumstances that 
would warrant conducting a full review.\1\ Accordingly, the Commission 
determined that it would conduct an expedited review pursuant to 
section 751(c)(3) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ A record of the Commissioners' votes, the Commission's 
statement on adequacy, and any individual Commissioner's statements 
will be available from the Office of the Secretary and at the 
Commission's Web site.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Staff report. A staff report containing information concerning the 
subject matter of the review will be placed in the nonpublic record on 
June 3, and made available to persons on the Administrative Protective 
Order service list for this review. A public version will be issued 
thereafter, pursuant to section 207.62(d)(4) of the Commission's rules.
    Written submissions. As provided in section 207.62(d) of the 
Commission's rules, interested parties that are parties to the review 
and that have provided individually adequate responses to the notice of 
institution,\2\ and any party other than an interested party to the 
review may file written comments with the Secretary on what 
determination the Commission should reach in the review. Comments are 
due on or before June 8, 2004 and may not contain new factual 
information. Any person that is neither a party to the five-year review 
nor an interested party may submit a brief written statement (which 
shall not contain any new factual information) pertinent to the review 
by June 8, 2004. However, should the Department of Commerce extend the 
time limit for its completion of the final results of its review, the 
deadline for comments (which may not contain new factual information) 
on Commerce's final results is three business days after the issuance 
of Commerce's results. If comments contain business proprietary 
information (BPI), they must conform with the requirements of sections 
201.6, 207.3, and 207.7 of the Commission's rules. The Commission's 
rules do not authorize filing of submissions with the Secretary by 
facsimile or electronic means, except to the extent permitted by 
section 201.8 of the Commission's rules, as amended, 67 FR 68036 
(November 8, 2002).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The Commission has found the responses submitted by Archer 
Daniels Midland Co.; Roquette America, Inc.; and SPI Polyols, Inc. 
to be individually adequate. Comments from other interested parties 
will not be accepted (see 19 CFR 207.62(d)(2)).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with sections 201.16(c) and 207.3 of the rules, each 
document filed by a party to the review must be served on all other 
parties to the review (as identified by either the public or BPI 
service list), and a certificate of service must be timely filed. The 
Secretary will not accept a document for filing without a certificate 
of service.

    Authority: This review is being conducted under authority of 
title VII of the Tariff Act of 1930; this notice is published 
pursuant to section 207.62 of the Commission's rules.

    By order of the Commission.

    Issued: May 14, 2004.
Marilyn R. Abbott,
Secretary to the Commission.
