Determinations

    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 an industry in the United States 
is materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of 
imports from China of certain passenger vehicle and light truck tires, 
provided for in subheadings 4011.10.10, 4011.10.50, 4011.20.10, and 
4011.20.50 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 are allegedly subsidized by the Government of China.\2\

Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR Sec.  207.2(f)).
    \2\ Vice Chairman Dean A. Pinkert and Commissioners Irving A.

materially injured by reason of imports of certain passenger vehicle 
and light truck tires from China. Chairman Meredith M. Broadbent and 
Commissioners David S. Johanson and F. Scott Kieff determine that

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.

Background

    On June 3, 2014, a petition was filed with the Commission and 
Commerce by the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, 
Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers 
International Union (``USW''), Pittsburgh, PA, alleging that an 
industry in the United States is materially injured or threatened with 
material injury by reason of LTFV and subsidized imports of certain 
passenger vehicle and light truck tires from China. Accordingly, 
effective June 3, 2014, the Commission instituted countervailing duty 
investigation No. 701-TA-522 and antidumping duty investigation No. 
731-TA-1258 (Preliminary).
    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 June 9, 2014 (79 FR 32994). The 
conference was held in Washington, DC, on June 24, 2014, and all 
persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in 
person or by counsel.
    The Commission transmitted its determinations in these 
investigations to the Secretary of Commerce on August 15, 2014. The 
views of the Commission are contained in USITC Publication 4482 (August 
2014), entitled Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from 
China: Investigation Nos. 701-TA-522 and 731-TA-1258 (Preliminary).

    By order of the Commission.

    Issued: August 15, 2014.
Lisa R. Barton,
Secretary to the Commission.
