General information concerning the Commission may also be obtained by accessing its internet server (https:// www.usitc.gov). The public record for this proceeding may be viewed on the Commission’s electronic docket (EDIS) at https://edis.usitc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background.—On October 21, 1977, the Department of the Treasury issued an antidumping finding on imports of pressure sensitive plastic tape from Italy (42 FR 56110). Following first five-year reviews by Commerce and the Commission, effective February 17, 1999, Commerce issued a continuation of the antidumping duty finding on imports of pressure sensitive plastic tape from Italy (64 FR 51515, September 23, 1999). Following second five-year reviews by Commerce and the Commission, effective June 25, 2004, Commerce issued a second continuation of the antidumping duty finding on imports of pressure sensitive plastic tape from Italy (69 FR 35584). Following third five-year reviews by Commerce and the Commission, effective April 5, 2010, Commerce issued a continuation of the antidumping duty finding on imports of pressure sensitive plastic tape from Italy (75 FR 17124). Following the fourth five-year review by Commerce and the Commission, effective April 14, 2016, Commerce issued a continuation of the antidumping duty finding on imports of pressure sensitive plastic tape from Italy (81 FR 22048). The Commission is now conducting its fifth review pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1675(c)), to determine whether revocation of the finding would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to the domestic industry within a reasonably foreseeable time. Provisions concerning the conduct of this proceeding may be found in the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure at 19 CFR part 201, subparts A and B, and 19 CFR part 207, subparts A and F. The Commission will assess the adequacy of interested party responses to this notice of institution to determine whether to conduct full 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 this review: PO 00000 Frm 00112 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (1) Subject Merchandise is the class or kind of merchandise that is within the scope of the five-year review, as defined by Commerce. (2) The Subject Country in this review is Italy. (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. The Commission did not make a like product determination per se in its original determination; however, the Commission considered the U.S. industry to consist of all domestic facilities that were devoted to the production of pressure sensitive plastic tape. In its expedited first and second five-year review determinations, in its full third five-year review determinations, and in its expedited fourth five-year review determination, the Commission found that the appropriate definition of the Domestic Like Product was the same as Commerce’s scope: Pressure sensitive plastic tape measuring over 13⁄8 inches in width and not exceeding 4 mils in thickness. (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 determination and its expedited first and second fiveyear review, full third five-year review, and expedited fourth five-year review determinations, the Commission defined the Domestic Industry as all domestic producers of pressure sensitive plastic tape. (5) 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 proceeding 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 proceeding 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 proceeding. E:\FR\FM\01MRN1.SGM 01MRN1
