Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigation:
On December 2, the Department announced the initiation of an antidumping duty investigation on certain processed hazelnuts from Turkey.
Next Steps: The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) is scheduled to issue its preliminary determination as to whether the domestic industry is materially injured, or is threatened with material injury, as a result of imports from Turkey on December 10. If the ITC should make an affirmative preliminary determination, the Department is scheduled to make its antidumping duty preliminary determination in April 2004.
Petitioner: The petition requesting this investigation was filed on October 21 by Westnut LLC (Dundee, OR), Northwest Hazelnut Company (Hubbard, OR), Hazelnut Growers of Oregon (Cornelius, OR), Willamette Filbert Growers (Newberg, OR), Evergreen Orchards (McMinnville, OR), and Evonuk Orchards (Eugene, OR), collectively "Petitioners".
Product Description: The scope of this investigation covers certain processed hazelnuts, including kernels, and kernels that have been roasted, blanched, sliced, diced, chopped, or in the following other forms: paste, meal, flour, croquant, and butter.

The merchandise subject to this investigation is classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) at subheadings 0802.22 and 2008.19.2000. The tariff classifications are provided for convenience and Customs purposes; however, the written description of the scope of these investigations is dispositive.
