In April 1998, the Commission, by a one-to-one vote, determined that the domestic industry producing static random access memory semiconductors (SRAMS) was materially injured by subject imports from Taiwan. On June 30, 1999, the Court of International Trade (CIT) remanded the determination to the Commission with instructions to explain how it ensured that it did not attribute the price depressing effects from other known factors to the subject imports. In September 1999, the Commission submitted Chairman Bragg's remand views as its “Views on Remand” in response to the order, again finding material injury to the domestic industry. On April 11, 2000, Judge Pogue remanded the Commission's remand determination for further explanation of certain matters including whether the Commission properly relied on several lost revenue allegations. On April 26, 2000, the CIT granted a consent motion setting the due date for the submission of the Commission's remand views to the CIT to Monday, June 26, 2000.
Scheduling the Vote
The Commission will vote on the remand determination at a public meeting to be held on Monday, June 12, 2000. The meeting is tentatively scheduled for 2:00 p.m.
