SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background--On November 4, 2002, the 
Commission determined that responses to its notice of institution of 
the subject five-year review were such that a full review pursuant to 
section 751(c)(5) of the Act should proceed (67 FR 69557, November 18, 
2002). A record of the Commissioners' votes, the Commission's statement 
on adequacy, and any individual Commissioner's statements are available 
from the Office of the Secretary and at the Commission's Web site.
    Participation in the review and public service list--Persons, 
including industrial users of the subject merchandise and, if the 
merchandise is sold at the retail level, representative consumer 
organizations, wishing to participate in this review as parties must 
file an entry of appearance with the Secretary to the Commission, as 
provided in section 201.11 of the Commission's rules, by 45 days after 
publication of this notice. A party that filed a notice of appearance 
following publication of the Commission's notice of institution of the 
review need not file an additional notice of appearance. The Secretary 
will maintain a public service list containing the names and addresses 
of all persons, or their representatives, who are parties to the 
review.
    Limited disclosure of business proprietary information (BPI) under 
an administrative protective order (APO) and BPI service list--Pursuant 
to section 207.7(a) of the Commission's rules, the Secretary will make 
BPI gathered in this review available to authorized applicants under 
the APO issued in the review, provided that the application is made by 
45 days after publication of this notice. Authorized applicants must 
represent interested parties, as defined by 19 U.S.C. 1677(9), who are 
parties to the review. A party granted access to BPI following 
publication of the Commission's notice of institution of the review 
need not reapply for such access. A separate service list will be 
maintained by the Secretary for those parties authorized to receive BPI 
under the APO.
    Staff report--The prehearing staff report in the review will be

review beginning at 9:30 a.m. on June 3, 2003, at the U.S.

parties all information on which they have not had an opportunity to 
comment. Parties may submit final comments on this information on or 
before July 8, 2003, but such final comments must not contain new
