SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Background.--On November 8, 2002, the Department of Commerce issued 
a countervailing duty order on imports of sulfanilic acid from Hungary 
and antidumping duty orders on imports of sulfanilic acid from Hungary 
and Portugal (67 FR 68100-68102). 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 Countries in these reviews are Hungary and 
Portugal.
    (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 defined a single Domestic Like Product 
consisting of all sulfanilic acid corresponding to the scope, including 
technical grade sulfanilic acid, refined grade sulfanilic acid, and 
sodium sulfanilate.
    (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 found a single Domestic Industry consisting of all domestic 
producers of sulfanilic acid.
    (5) The Order Date is the date that the antidumping and 
countervailing duty orders under review became effective. In these 
reviews, the Order Date is November 8, 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 section 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,

[[Page 55807]]

to seek Commission approval if the matter in which they are seeking to 
appear was pending in any manner or form during their Commission 
employment. The Commission's designated 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.
    Limited disclosure of business proprietary information (BPI) under 
an administrative protective order (APO) and APO service list.--
Pursuant to section 207.7(a) of the Commission's rules, the Secretary 
will make BPI submitted in these reviews available to authorized 
applicants under the APO issued in the reviews, provided that the 
application is made no later than 21 days after publication of this 
notice in the Federal Register. Authorized applicants must represent 
interested parties, as defined in 19 U.S.C. 1677(9), who are parties to 
the reviews. A separate service list will be maintained by the 
Secretary for those parties authorized to receive BPI under the APO.
    Certification.--Pursuant to section 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 investigations relating to the programs and operations of the 
Commission pursuant to 5 U.S.C. Appendix 3.

207.62(b)(1)) may also file comments concerning the adequacy of 
responses to the notice of institution and whether the Commission 
should conduct expedited or full reviews. The deadline for filing such 
comments is December 14, 2007. All written submissions must conform 
with the provisions of sections 201.8 and 207.3 of the Commission's 
rules and any submissions that contain BPI must also conform with the 
requirements of sections 201.6 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

68036 (November 8, 2002). Also, in accordance with sections 201.16(c) 
and 207.3 of the Commission's rules, each document filed by a party to 
the reviews must be served on all other parties to the reviews (as 
identified by either the public or APO service list as appropriate), 
and a certificate of service must accompany the document (if you are 
not a party to the reviews you do not need to serve your response).
    Inability to provide requested information.--Pursuant to section 
207.61(c) of the Commission's rules, any interested party that cannot 
furnish the information requested by this notice in the requested form 
and manner shall notify the Commission at the earliest possible time, 
provide a full explanation of why it cannot provide the requested 
information, and indicate alternative forms in which it can provide 
equivalent information. If an interested party does not provide this 
notification (or the Commission finds the explanation provided in the 
notification inadequate) and fails to provide a complete response to 
this notice, the Commission may take an adverse inference against the
