The Commission analyzes a number of factors in making threat determinations (see 19 U.S.C. § 1677(7)(F)(i)). Information on the nature of the alleged subsidies was presented earlier in this report (if relevant); information on the volume and pricing of imports of the subject merchandise is presented in Parts IV and V; and information on the effects of imports of the subject merchandise on U.S. producers’ existing development and production efforts is presented in Part VI. Information on inventories of the subject merchandise; foreign producers’ operations, including the potential for “product-shifting;” any other threat indicators, if applicable; and any dumping in third-country markets, follows.


The Commission sent, or arranged for parties to transmit, foreign producer questionnaires to companies in China (56 firms), Indonesia (4 firms), and Korea (11 firms) that were identified in the petition, Customs documents, and/or public sources as possibly producing CFS paper. Reporting subject manufacturers are listed in table VII-1 along with each firm’s reported capacity, production, total exports, and exports to the United States in 2005.1 Table VII-2 provides information on the structure of the foreign producer’ operations and projected changes to those operations that were identified in their responses to the Commission’s foreign producer questionnaire. CFS paper constituted a substantial share of the total sales of most of the companies. The majority also produced other products, most often uncoated free sheet, on the machinery and equipment used to produce the subject merchandise. *** reported any plans to add, expand, curtail, or shut down CFS paper capacity or production. The most frequently cited anticipated change to the operations of the Chinese and Indonesian manufacturers was a drop in their export volume.2
