SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Reopening the Record

    In March 2003, the Commission made a final affirmative 
determination in the referenced investigation. The determination was 
appealed to the U.S. Court of International Trade (CIT), which affirmed 
the Commission upon remand, and was then appealed to the U.S. Court of 
Appeals for the Federal Circuit, which vacated and remanded the 
Commission's determination. Bratsk Aluminum Smelter v. United States, 
444 F.3d 1369 (Fed. Cir. 2006). On August 17, 2006, the CIT issued an 
order remanding the case to the Commission to comply with the Federal 
Circuit's decision in Bratsk. By order of September 22, 2006, the 
remand proceeding was stayed upon the Commission's motion. On December 
22, 2006, the CIT issued an order lifting the stay and giving the 
Commission 90 days to issue its remand determination.
    In order to assist it in making its determination on remand, the 
Commission is reopening the record on remand in this investigation to
