Notice of the scheduling of the Commission’s review and of a public hearing 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 on October 15, 2009 (74 FR 55065). Counsel for the three domestic producers of chloropicrin offered to submit written testimony in lieu of an oral hearing presentation. In connection with the offer of written testimony, counsel indicated a willingness to respond to written questions of the Commissioners by a date to be set by the Commission. No other party filed a request to appear at the hearing. Consequently, the public hearing in connection with the review, scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. on February 18, 2010, at the U.S. International Trade Commission Building was cancelled. The Commission transmitted its determination in this investigation to the Secretary of Commerce on April 19, 2010.
