Determinations

On the basis of the record [1] developed in the subject investigations, the United States International Trade Commission (“Commission”) determines, pursuant to section 705(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b)) (“the Act”), that an industry in the United States is threatened with material injury by reason of imports of chlorinated isocyanurates from China, provided for in subheadings 2933.69.6015, 2933.69.6021, 2933.69.6050, 3808.50.4000, 3808.94.5000, and 3808.99.9500 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, that have been found by the Department of Commerce (“Commerce”) to be subsidized by the government of China.[2]

The Commission further determines, pursuant to section 735(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)), that an industry in the United States is not materially injured or threatened with material injury, and the establishment of an industry in the United States is not materially retarded, by reason of imports of chlorinated isocyanurates from Japan that have been found by Commerce to be sold in the United States at less than fair value (“LTFV”).[3]

Background

The Commission instituted these investigations effective August 29, 2013, following receipt of a petition filed with the Commission and Commerce by Clearon Corp., South Charleston, WV; and Occidental Chemical Corp., Dallas, TX. The final phase of the investigations was scheduled by the Commission following notification of preliminary determinations by Commerce that imports of chlorinated isocyanurates from China were subsidized within the meaning of section 703(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b(b)) and that imports of chlorinated isocyanurates from Japan were 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 May 19, 2014 (79 FR 28771). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on September 9, 2014, and all persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by counsel.Start Printed Page 66405
