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-602 and 731-TA-1412 
(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 imports of steel wheels from China, 
provided for in subheadings 8708.70.45, 8708.70.60, and 8716.90.50 of 
the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, that are alleged 
to be sold in the United States at less than fair value and alleged to 
be subsidized by the Government of China. Unless the Department of 
Commerce (``Commerce'') extends the time for initiation, the Commission 
must reach a preliminary determination in antidumping and 
countervailing duty investigations in 45 days, or in this case by May 
11, 2018. The Commission's views must be transmitted to Commerce within 
five business days thereafter, or by May 18, 2018.

DATES: March 27, 2018.
