Investigations and Scheduling of Preliminary Phase Investigations

AGENCY: United States International Trade Commission.

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: The Commission hereby gives notice of the institution of 
investigations and commencement of preliminary phase antidumping and 
countervailing duty investigation Nos. 701-TA-551-553 and 731-TA-1307-
1308 (Preliminary) pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930 (``the Act'') to 
determine whether there is a reasonable indication that 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 certain imports of new pneumatic off-
the-road-tires from China, India and Sri Lanka provided for in 
subheadings 4011.20.10, 4011.20.50, 4011.61.00, 4011.62.00, 4011.63.00, 
4011.69.00, 4011.92.00, 4011.93.40, 4011.93.80, 4011.94.40, 4011.94.80, 
8431.49.90, 8709.90.00, and 8716.90.10 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States.\1\ The petitioners allege that these 
products are imported from China and India and sold in the United 
States at less-than-fair-value and that these imports are allegedly 
subsidized by the governments of China, India, and Sri Lanka. Unless 
the Department of Commerce extends the time for initiation, the 
Commission must reach preliminary determinations in antidumping and 
countervailing duty investigations in 45 days, or in this case by 
February 22, 2016. The Commission's views must be transmitted to 
Commerce within five
