SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On August 27, 1999 (64 FR 46952), the Commission published a notice in the Federal Register scheduling a full five-year review concerning the antidumping duty order on internal combustion industrial forklift trucks from Japan. The schedule provided for a public hearing on January 25, 2000. Requests to appear at the hearing were filed with the Commission on behalf of NACCO Materials Handling Group and on behalf of Clark Material Handling Co. However, the Federal Government was closed on January 25, 2000, because of snow and so the Commission hearing was not held as scheduled. Subsequently, each of the parties requesting to appear at the hearing withdrew their request. Since there are no current requests by interested parties to appear at a public hearing, the Commission determined to cancel, instead of reschedule, the public hearing on internal combustion industrial forklift trucks from Japan and provide those parties scheduled to appear an opportunity to present written testimony. The Commission unanimously determined that no earlier announcement of this cancellation was possible.

The Commission's new schedule for the review is as follows: the deadline for filing posthearing briefs is February 15, 2000; the Commission will make its final release of information on March 9, 2000; and final party comments are due on March 13, 2000.

For further information concerning the review, see the Commission's notice cited above and the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, part 201, subparts A through E (19 CFR part 201), and part 207, subparts A and F (19 CFR part 207).
