Final Phase of Countervailing Duty and Antidumping Duty Investigations

AGENCY: United States International Trade Commission.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Commission hereby gives notice of the scheduling of the 
final phase of countervailing and antidumping duty investigation Nos. 
701-TA-514 and 731-TA-1250 (Final) under sections 705(b) and 731(b) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b) and 1673d(b)) (the Act) to 
determine whether an industry in the United States is materially 
injured or threatened with material injury, or the establishment of an 
industry in the United States is materially retarded, by reason of 
subsidized and less-than-fair-value imports from China of 53-foot 
domestic dry containers, provided for in subheading 8609.00.0000 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ For purposes of these investigations, the Department of 
Commerce has defined the subject merchandise as ``closed (i.e., not 
open top) van containers exceeding 14.63 meters (48 feet) but 
generally measuring 16.154 meters (53 feet) in exterior length, 
which are designed for the intermodal transport of goods other than 
bulk liquids within North America primarily by rail or by road 
vehicle, or by a combination of rail and road vehicle (domestic 
containers). The merchandise is known in the industry by varying 
terms including `53-foot containers,' `53-foot dry containers,' `53-
foot domestic dry containers,' `domestic dry containers' and 
`domestic containers.' ''

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Background.--The final phase of these investigations is being 
scheduled as a result of affirmative preliminary determinations by the 
Department of Commerce that certain benefits which constitute subsidies 
within the meaning of section 703 of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b) are 
being provided to manufacturers, producers, or exporters in China of 
53-foot domestic dry containers, and that such products are being sold 
in the United States at less than fair value within the meaning of 
section 733 of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673b). The investigations were 
requested in petitions filed on April 23, 2014, by Stoughton Trailers, 
LLC, Stoughton, Wisconsin.
    Participation in the investigations 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 the final phase of these 
investigations as parties must file an entry of appearance with the
