Start Preamble

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 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 certain iron mechanical transfer drive components from Canada and China, provided for in subheadings 8483.30.80, 8483.50.60, 8483.50.90, 8483.90.30, and 8483.90.80 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States,[2] 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 China.[3]

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 October 28, 2015, following receipt of petitions filed with the Commission and Commerce by TB Wood's Incorporated, Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. The final phase of the investigations was scheduled by the Commission following notification of preliminary determinations by Commerce that imports of certain iron mechanical transfer drive components from China were subsidized within the meaning of section 703(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b(b)) and imports of certain iron mechanical transfer drive components from Canada and China were dumped within the meaning of 733(b) of the Act Start Printed Page 91199(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 June 24, 2016 (81 FR 41348). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on October 18, 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 December 12, 2016. The views of the Commission are contained in USITC Publication 4652 (December 2016), entitled Certain Iron Mechanical Transfer Drive Components from Canada and China: Investigation Nos. 701-TA-550 and 731-TA-1304-1305 (Final).
