The Commission believes that Twaron has justified the need for a closed session. In this review, significant data for both the foreign and domestic industries are business proprietary. Twaron seeks a closed session in order to fully address the issues before the Commission without referring to business proprietary information. In making this decision, the Commission nevertheless reaffirms its belief that whenever possible its business should be conducted in public.

The hearing will begin with public presentations by E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Company (“DuPont”), domestic producer opposing revocation of the antidumping duty order, followed by foreign respondent Twaron in support of revocation. During the public session, the Commission may question the parties following their respective presentations. Next, the hearing will include a 20-minute in camera session for a confidential presentation by Twaron and for questions from the Commission relating to the BPI, followed by a 20-minute in camera rebuttal presentation by DuPont and questions from the Commission relating to the BPI. For any in camera session the room will be cleared of all persons except those who have been granted access to BPI under a Commission administrative protective order (APO) and are included on the Commission's APO service list in these investigations. See 19 CFR 201.35(b)(1), (2). The time for the parties' presentations and rebuttals in the in camera session will be taken from their respective overall time allotments for the hearing. All persons planning to attend the in camera portions of the hearing should be prepared to present proper identification.
