Determinations

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 materially injured by reason of imports of certain biaxial integral geogrids from China, provided for in subheading 3926.90.99 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 to be subsidized by the government of China.[2]

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 January 13, 2016, following receipt of a petition filed with the Commission and Commerce by Tensar Corporation, Morrow, Georgia. The final phase of the investigations was scheduled by the Commission following notification of preliminary determinations by Commerce that imports of certain biaxial integral geogrids from China 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 September 15, 2016 (81 FR 63495). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on December 21, 2016, and all persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by counsel.Start Printed Page 12369

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 February 24, 2017. The views of the Commission are contained in USITC Publication 4670 (February 2017), entitled Certain Biaxial Integral Geogrid Products from China: Investigation Nos. 701-TA-554 and 731-TA-1309 (Final).

2.  The Commission also finds that imports subject to Commerce's affirmative critical circumstances determinations are not likely to undermine seriously the remedial effect of the countervailing and antidumping duty orders on certain biaxial integral geogrid products from China.
