SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On January 8, 2002, the Department of Commerce issued an 
antidumping duty order on imports of folding gift boxes from China (67 
FR 864). The Commission is conducting a review to determine whether 
revocation of the order would be likely to lead to continuation or 
recurrence of material injury to the domestic industry within a 
reasonably foreseeable time. It will assess the adequacy of interested 
party responses to this notice of institution to determine whether to 
conduct a full review or an expedited review. The Commission's 
determination in any expedited review will be based on the facts 
available, which may include information provided in response to this 
notice.

Definitions

    The following definitions apply to this review:
    (1) Subject Merchandise is the class or kind of merchandise that is 
within the scope of the five-year review, as defined by the Department 
of Commerce.
    (2) The Subject Country in this review is China.
    (3) The Domestic Like Product is the domestically produced product 
or products which are like, or in the absence of like, most similar in 
characteristics and uses with, the Subject Merchandise. In its original 
determination, the Commission defined the Domestic Like Product as 
certain folding gift boxes for resale, coextensive with Commerce's 
scope, and not including give-away gift boxes. One Commissioner defined 
the Domestic Like Product differently.
    (4) The Domestic Industry is the U.S. producers as a whole of the 
Domestic Like Product, or those producers whose collective output of 
the Domestic Like Product constitutes a major proportion of the total 
domestic production of the product. In its original determination, the 
Commission defined the Domestic Industry as all domestic producers of 
certain folding gift boxes for resale. One Commissioner defined the 
Domestic Industry differently.
    (5) The Order Date is the date that the antidumping duty order 
under review became effective. In this review, the Order Date is

matter'' as the underlying original investigation for purposes of 19

any informal consultation will not relieve former employees of the 
obligation to seek approval to appear from the Commission under its
