On the basis of the record 
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 welded stainless steel pressure pipe from India, provided for in subheadings 7306.40.50 and 7306.40.10 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 that have been found by Commerce to be subsidized by the government of India.
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 September 30, 2015, following receipt of a petition filed with the Commission and Commerce by Bristol Metals, LLC, Bristol, Tennessee; Felker Brothers Corp., Marshfield, Wisconsin; Marcegaglia USA, Munhall, Pennsylvania; and Outokumpu Stainless Pipe, Inc., Wildwood, Florida. The final phase of the investigations was scheduled by the Commission following notification of preliminary determinations by Commerce that imports of welded stainless steel pressure pipe from India were subsidized within the meaning of section 703(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b(b)) and 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 27, 2016 (81 FR 33706). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on September 22, 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 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 November 9, 2016. The views of the Commission are contained in USITC Publication 4644 (November 2016), entitled Welded Stainless Steel Pressure Pipe from India: Investigation Nos. 701-TA-548 and 731-TA-1298 (Final).
