INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION

[Investigation Nos. 701-TA-552-553 and 731-TA-1308 (Final)]


Certain New Pneumatic Off-the-Road Tires From India and Sri Lanka

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 new pneumatic off-the-road tires from 
India, provided for in headings 4011, 8431, 8709, and 8716 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, that have been found 
by the Department of Commerce (``Commerce'') to be sold in the United 
States at less than fair value (``LTFV'') and subsidized by the 
government of India, and by reason of imports of certain new pneumatic 
off-the-road tires found by Commerce to be subsidized by the government 
of Sri Lanka.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\ The Commission also finds that imports subject to Commerce's 
affirmative critical circumstances determination are not likely to 
undermine seriously the remedial effect of the countervailing duty 
orders on certain new pneumatic off-the-road tires from India and 
Sri Lanka.
    \3\ Commissioner Dean A. Pinkert did not participate in these 
investigations.

Background

    The Commission, pursuant to sections 705(b) and 735(b) of the Act 
(19 U.S.C. 1671d(b) and 19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)), instituted these 
investigations effective January 8, 2016, following receipt of 
petitions filed with the Commission and Commerce by Titan Tire 
Corporation of Des Moines, Iowa (``Titan'') and the United Steel, Paper 
and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and 
Service Workers International Union, AFL-CIO, CLC of Pittsburgh, 
Pennsylvania (``USW''). The final phase of the investigations was 
scheduled by the Commission following notification of preliminary 
determinations by Commerce that imports of certain new pneumatic off-
the-road tires from India and Sri Lanka were subsidized within the 
meaning of section 703(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b(b)) and that 
imports of certain new pneumatic off-the-road tires from India were not 
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 September 12, 2016 
(81 FR 62760). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on January 4, 
2017, 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 Act (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b) and 19 U.S.C. 
1673d(b)). It completed and filed its determinations in these 
investigations on February 23, 2017. The views of the Commission are 
contained in USITC Publication 4669 (February 2017), entitled Certain 
New Pneumatic Off-the-Road Tires from India and Sri Lanka: 
Investigation Nos. 701-TA-552-553 and 731-TA-1308 (Final).

    By order of the Commission.

    Issued: February 23, 2017.
Lisa R. Barton,
Secretary to the Commission.
