SUMMARY: The Commission hereby gives notice of the institution of 
investigations and commencement of preliminary phase antidumping and 
countervailing duty investigation Nos. 701-TA-556 and 731-TA-1311 
(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 truck and bus tires from 
China, provided for in statistical reporting numbers 4011.20.1015 and 
4011.20.5020 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 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 March 
14, 2016. The Commission's views must be transmitted to Commerce within 
five business days thereafter, or by March 21, 2016.

DATES: Effective Date: January 29, 2016.
