Background

    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
