INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION

[Investigation Nos. 701-TA-522 and 731-TA-1258 (Final)]


Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires From China

Determinations

    On the basis of the record \1\ developed in the subject 
investigations, the United States International Trade Commission 
(``Commission'') determines, pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930 (``the 
Act''), that an industry in the United States is materially injured by 
reason of imports of certain passenger vehicle and light truck tires 
from China, 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 have been found by the Department of Commerce to be 
sold in the United States at less than fair value (``LTFV'') and 
subsidized by the government of China.2 3
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \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\ Vice Chairman Dean A. Pinkert and Commissioners Irving A. 
Williamson and Rhonda K. Schmidtlein voted in the affirmative. They 
further determine that imports subject to Commerce's affirmative 
critical circumstances determinations are not likely to undermine 
seriously the remedial effect of the countervailing and antidumping 
duty orders on certain passenger vehicle and light truck tires from 
China.
    \3\ Chairman Meredith M. Broadbent and Commissioners David S. 
Johanson and F. Scott Kieff dissenting.

Background

    The Commission, pursuant to sections 705(b) and 735(b) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b)) and (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)), 
instituted these investigations effective June 3, 2014, following 
receipt of petitions filed with the Commission and Commerce by United 
Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied 
Industrial and Service Workers, International Union, Pittsburgh, PA. 
The final phase of the investigations was scheduled by the Commission 
following notification of preliminary determinations by Commerce that 
imports of certain passenger vehicle and light truck tires from China 
were subsidized within the meaning of section 703(b) of the Act (19 
U.S.C. 1671b(b)) and dumped within the meaning of 733(b) of the Act (19 
U.S.C. 1673b(b)). Notice of the scheduling of the final phase of the 
Commission's investigations and of a public hearing 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 on 
February 24, 2015 (80 FR 9744). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, 
on June 9, 2015, and all persons who requested the opportunity were 
permitted to appear in person or by counsel.
    The Commission made these determinations pursuant to sections 
705(b) and 735(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b)) and 
(19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)). It completed and filed its determinations in 
these investigations on August 3, 2015. The views of the Commission are 
contained in USITC Publication 4545 (August 2015), entitled Certain 
Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from China: Investigation Nos. 
701-TA-522 and 731-TA-1258 (Final).

    By order of the Commission.

    Issued: August 3, 2015.
Lisa R. Barton,
Secretary to the Commission.
