SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Case History The following events have occurred since the publication of the Department’s notice of initiation in the Federal Register. See Commodity Matchbooks from India: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 73 FR 70968 (November 24, 2008) (Initiation Notice). On December 10, 2008, the Department selected as mandatory respondent, Triveni Safety Matches Pvt., Ltd. (Triveni), the only producer/ exporter of commodity matchbooks from India identified in the Petition during the period 2005 through 2008. The Department found no information indicating that there were other Indian producers or exporters of commodity matchbooks. See Memorandum to Barbara E. Tillman, Director, AD/CVD Operations, Office 6, ‘‘Countervailing Duty Investigation of Commodity Matchbooks from India: Respondent Identification.’’ A public version of this memorandum is on file in the Department’s Central Records Unit (CRU) in Room 1117 of the main Department building. On December 16, 2008, we issued the CVD questionnaire to the Government of India (GOI), requesting that the GOI forward the company sections of the questionnaire to the mandatory respondent company. On December 19, 2008, the International Trade Commission (ITC) issued its affirmative preliminary determination that there is a reasonable indication that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of allegedly subsidized imports of commodity matchbooks from India. See Commodity Matchbooks from India; Determinations, 73 FR 77840 (December 19, 2008); and Commodity Matchbooks from India (Preliminary), USITC Pub. 4054, Inv. Nos. 701–TA–459 and 731– TA–1155 (December 2008). On January 7, 2009, we postponed the preliminary determination of this investigation until March 30, 2009. See Commodity Matchbooks from India: Postponement of Preliminary Determination in the Countervailing Duty Investigation, 74 FR 683 (January 7, 2009).
