[Investigation Nos. 701-TA-514 and 731-TA-1250 (Preliminary)]

53-Foot Domestic Dry Containers From China


    On the basis of the record \1\ developed in the subject 
investigations, the United States International Trade Commission 
(Commission) determines, pursuant to sections 703(a) and 733(a) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1671b(a) and 1673b(a)) (the Act), that 
there is a reasonable indication that the establishment of an industry 
in the United States is materially retarded by reason of imports from 
China of 53-foot domestic dry containers, provided for in heading 
8609.00.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, that 
are alleged to be sold in the United States at less than fair value 
(``LTFV''), and that are allegedly subsidized by the Government of 

    \1\ The record is defined in sec. 207.2(f) of the Commission's 
Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 207.2(f)).
    \2\ Commissioners Broadbent and Kieff dissenting.

Commencement of Final Phase Investigations

    Pursuant to section 207.18 of the Commission's rules, the 
Commission also gives notice of the commencement of the final phase of 
its investigations. The Commission will issue a final phase notice of 
scheduling, which will be published in the Federal Register as provided 
in section 207.21 of the Commission's rules, upon notice from the 
Department of Commerce (Commerce) of affirmative preliminary 
determinations in the investigations under sections 703(b) or 733(b) of 
the Act, or, if the preliminary determinations are negative, upon 
notice of affirmative final determinations in those investigations 
under sections 705(a) or 735(a) of the Act. Parties that filed entries 
of appearance in the preliminary phase of the investigations need not 
enter a separate appearance for the final phase of the investigations. 
Industrial users, and, if the merchandise under investigation is sold 
at the retail level, representative consumer organizations have the 
right to appear as parties in Commission antidumping and countervailing 
duty investigations. The Secretary will prepare a public service list 
containing the names and addresses of all persons, or their 
representatives, who are parties to the investigations.


    On April 23, 2014, petitions were filed with the Commission and 
Commerce by Stoughton Trailers, LLC, Stoughton, Wisconsin, alleging 
that the establishment of a domestic industry is materially retarded 
and that an industry in the United States is materially injured or 
threatened with material injury by reason of LTFV and subsidized 
imports of 53-foot domestic dry containers from China. Accordingly, 
effective April 23, 2014, the Commission instituted countervailing duty 
Inv. No. 701-TA-514 and antidumping duty Inv. No. 731-TA-1250 
    Notice of the institution of the Commission's investigations 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 April 29, 2014 (79 FR 24005). The 
conference was held in Washington, DC, on May 14, 2014, and all persons 
who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by 
    The Commission transmitted its determinations in these 
investigations to the Secretary of Commerce on June 9, 2014. The views 
of the Commission are contained in USITC Publication 4474 (June 2014), 
entitled 53-Foot Domestic Dry Containers from China: Investigation Nos. 
701-TA-514 and 731-TA-1250 (Preliminary).

    By order of the Commission.

    Issued: June 9, 2014.
Lisa R. Barton,
Secretary to the Commission.
