SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background. On February 13, 2002, the 
Department of Commerce issued countervailing and antidumping duty 
orders on imports of low enriched uranium from France (67 FR 6689-6691 
and 6680-6681). The Commission is conducting reviews to determine 
whether revocation of the orders 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 full reviews or expedited reviews. The Commission's 
determinations in any expedited reviews will be based on the facts 
available, which may include information provided in response to this 
notice.
    Definitions. The following definitions apply to these reviews:
    (1) Subject Merchandise is the class or kind of merchandise that is 
within the scope of the five-year reviews, as defined by the Department 
of Commerce.
    (2) The Subject Country in these reviews is France.
    (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 
determinations, the Commission determined that there was one Domestic 
Like Product consisting of all low enriched uranium corresponding to 
Commerce's scope.
    (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 determinations, the 
Commission determined that there was a single Domestic Industry 
consisting of the sole domestic producer of low enriched uranium, USEC.
    (5) The Order Date is the date that the countervailing and 
antidumping duty orders under review became effective. In these 
reviews, the Order Date is February 13, 2002.
    (6) An Importer is any person or firm engaged, either directly or 
through a parent company or subsidiary, in importing the Subject 
Merchandise into the United States from a foreign manufacturer or 
through its selling agent.
    Participation in the reviews and public service list. Persons, 
including industrial users of the Subject Merchandise and, if the 
merchandise is sold at the retail level, representative consumer 
organizations, wishing to participate in the reviews as parties must 
file an entry of appearance with the Secretary to the Commission, as 
provided in Sec.  201.11(b)(4) of the Commission's rules, no later than 
21 days after publication of this notice in the Federal Register. The 
Secretary will maintain a public service list containing the names and 
addresses of all persons, or their representatives, who are parties to 
the reviews.
    Former Commission employees who are seeking to appear in Commission 
five-year reviews are reminded that they are required, pursuant to 19 
CFR 201.15, to seek Commission approval if the

matter in which they are seeking to appear was pending in any manner or

agency ethics official has advised that a five-year review is the 
``same particular matter'' as the underlying original investigation for 
purposes of 19 CFR 201.15 and 18 U.S.C. 207, the post employment 
statute for Federal employees. Former employees may seek informal 
advice from Commission ethics officials with respect to this and the 
related issue of whether the employee's participation was ``personal 
and substantial.'' However, any informal consultation will not relieve 
former employees of the obligation to seek approval to appear from the 
Commission under its rule 201.15. For ethics advice, contact Carol 
McCue Verratti, Deputy Agency Ethics Official, at 202-205-3088.

BPI submitted in these reviews available to authorized applicants under

separate service list will be maintained by the Secretary for those 
parties authorized to receive BPI under the APO.
    Certification. Pursuant to Sec.  207.3 of the Commission's rules, 
any person submitting information to the Commission in connection with 
these reviews must certify that the information is accurate and 
complete to the best of the submitter's knowledge. In making the 
certification, the submitter will be deemed to consent, unless 
otherwise specified, for the Commission, its employees, and contract 
personnel to use the information provided in any other reviews or 
investigations of the same or comparable products which the Commission 
conducts under Title VII of the Act, or in internal audits and
