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 January 29, 2016, the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, 
Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers 
International Union, Pittsburgh, PA filed a petition with the 
Commission and Commerce, alleging that an industry in the United States 
is materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of 
LTFV and subsidized imports of truck and bus tires from China. 
Accordingly, effective January 29, 2016, the Commission, pursuant to 
sections 703(a) and 733(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 
1671b(a) and 1673b(a)), instituted countervailing duty investigation 
No. 701-TA-556 and antidumping duty investigation No. 731-TA-1311 
(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 February 4, 2016 (81 FR 6042). The 
conference was held in Washington, DC, on February 19, 2016, and all 
persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in 
person or by counsel.
    The Commission made these determinations pursuant to sections 
703(a) and 733(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1671b(a) and 
1673b(a)). It completed and filed its determinations in these 
investigations on March 14, 2016. The views of the Commission are 
contained in USITC Publication 4601 (March 2016), entitled Truck and 
Bus Tires from China: Investigation Nos. 701-TA-556 and 731-TA-1311 
(Preliminary).

    By order of the Commission.

    Issued: March 15, 2016.
Lisa R. Barton,
Secretary to the Commission.
