On the basis of the record  developed in the subject investigation, the United States International Trade Commission (Commission) determines, pursuant to section 733(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1673b(a)) (the Act), that there is no reasonable indication that an industry in the United States is materially injured or threatened with material injury, or that the establishment of an industry in the United States is materially retarded, by reason of imports from South Africa of hydraulic magnetic circuit breakers, provided for in subheadings 8535.21.00 and 8536.20.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, that are alleged to be sold in the United States at less than fair value (LTFV).
On April 14, 2003, a petition was filed with the Commission and Department of Commerce (Commerce) by Airpax Corp., Cambridge, MD, alleging that an industry in the United States is materially injured and threatened with material injury by reason of LTFV imports of hydraulic magnetic circuit breakers from South Africa. Accordingly, effective April 14, 2003, the Commission instituted antidumping duty investigation No. 731-TA-1033 (Preliminary).
Notice of the institution of the Commission's investigation and of a public conference 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 of April 22, 2003 (68 FR 19849). The conference was held in Washington, DC, on May 5, 2003, and all persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by counsel.
The Commission transmitted its determination in this investigation to the Secretary of Commerce on May 29, 2003. The views of the Commission are contained in USITC Publication 3600 (June 2003), entitled Hydraulic Magnetic Circuit Breakers from South Africa: Investigation No. 731-TA-1033 (Preliminary).Start Signature
