On the basis of the record  developed in the subject investigations, the United States International Trade Commission (Commission) determines, pursuant to sections 703(a) and 733(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1671b(a) and 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 India of certain colored synthetic organic oleoresinous pigment dispersions  that are alleged to be subsidized by the Government of India and alleged to be sold in the United States at less than fair value (LTFV).
On June 5, 2003, a petition was filed with the Commission and Commerce by Apollo Colors, Inc., Rockdale, IL; General Press Colors, Ltd., Addison, IL; Magruder Color Company, Inc., Elizabeth, NJ; and Sun Chemical Corporation, Fort Lee, NJ, alleging that an industry in the United States is materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of subsidized and LTFV imports of certain colored synthetic organic oleoresinous pigment dispersions from India. Accordingly, effective June 5, 2003, the Commission instituted countervailing duty investigation No. 701-TA-436 (Preliminary) and antidumping duty investigation No. 731-TA-1042 (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 June 11, 2003 (68 FR 35003). The conference was held in Washington, DC on June 27, 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 July 21, 2003. The views of the Commission are contained in USITC Publication 3615 (July 2003), entitled Certain Colored Synthetic Organic Oleoresinous Pigment Dispersions from India: Investigation Nos. 701-TA-436 (Preliminary) and 731-TA-1042 (Preliminary).Start Signature
