On the basis of the record  developed in the subject investigation, the United States International Trade Commission (Commission) determines, pursuant to section 735(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)) (the Act), that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of imports from China of certain color television receivers, provided for in subheadings and statistical reporting numbers 8528.12.28, 8528.12.3250, 8528.12.3290, 8528.12.36, 8528.12.40, 8528.12.44, 8528.12.48, 8528.12.52, and 8528.12.56 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, that have been found by the Department of Commerce (Commerce) to be sold in the United States at less than fair value (LTFV).
The Commission instituted this investigation effective May 2, 2003, following receipt of a petition filed with the Commission and Commerce by Five Rivers Electronic Innovations, LLC, Greeneville, TN; the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), Washington, DC; and the IUE-CWA, Industrial Division of the Communications Workers of America, Washington, DC. The final phase of the investigation was scheduled by the Commission following notification of a preliminary determination by Commerce that imports of certain color television receivers from China were being sold at LTFV within the meaning of section 733(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673b(b)). Notice of the scheduling of the final phase of the Commission's investigation and of a public hearing 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 January 26, 2004 (69 FR 3601). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on April 15, 2004, 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 26, 2004.
