Certain lightweight thermal paper is typically (but not exclusively) used in point-of-sale applications such as ATM receipts, credit card receipts, gas pump receipts, and retail store receipts. 3 Commissioner Charlotte R. Lane determines that there is a reasonable indication that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of subject imports of lightweight thermal paper from China that are alleged to be sold at LTFV and subsidized. 4 Chairman Daniel R. Pearson, Vice Chairman Shara L. Aranoff, and Commissioner Deanna Tanner Okun dissenting. Commissioners Charlotte R. Lane and Dean A. Pinkert’s determinations are on the basis of reasonable indication of material injury. Commissioner Irving A. Williamson’s determination is on the basis of reasonable indication of threat of material injury. PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 70343 Pursuant to section 207.18 of the Commission’s rules, the Commission also gives notice of the commencement of the final phase of its investigations concerning certain lightweight thermal paper from China and Germany. The Commission will issue a final phase notice of scheduling, which will be published in the Federal Register as provided in section 207.21 of the Commission’s rules, upon notice from the Department of Commerce (Commerce) of affirmative preliminary determinations in the investigations under sections 703(b) and 733(b) of the Act, or, if the preliminary determinations are negative, upon notice of affirmative final determinations in those investigations under sections 705(a) and 735(a) of the Act. Parties that filed entries of appearance in the preliminary phase of the investigations need not enter a separate appearance for the final phase of the investigations. Industrial users, and, if the merchandise under investigation is sold at the retail level, representative consumer organizations have the right to appear as parties in Commission antidumping and countervailing duty investigations. The Secretary will prepare a public service list containing the names and addresses of all persons, or their representatives, who are parties to the investigations. Background On September 19, 2007, a petition was filed with the Commission and Commerce by Appleton Papers, Inc., Appleton, WI, alleging that an industry in the United States is materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of LTFV imports of certain lightweight thermal paper from China, Germany, and Korea and by reason of subsidized imports from China. Accordingly, effective September 19, 2007, the Commission instituted antidumping and countervailing duty investigation Nos. 701–TA–451 and 731–TA–1126–1128 (Preliminary). Notice of the institution of the Commission’s investigations and of a public conference to be held in connection therewith was given by posting copies of the notice in the Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade Commission, Washington, DC, and by publishing the notice in the Federal Register of September 27, 2007 (72 FR 54926). The conference was held in Washington, DC, on October 10, 2007, and all persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by counsel. E:\FR\FM\11DEN1.SGM 11DEN1
