INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION

[Investigation No. 731-TA-1143 (Final)]


Small Diameter Graphite Electrodes From China

Determination

    On the basis of the record \1\ developed in the subject 
investigation, the United States International Trade Commission 
(Commission) determines, pursuant to section 735(b) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)) (the Act), that an industry in the United 
States is materially injured by reason of imports from China of small 
diameter graphite electrodes, provided for in subheading 8545.11.00 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).\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The record is defined in section 207.2(f) of the 
Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 207.2(f)).
    \2\ The Commission also finds that imports subject to Commerce's 
affirmative critical circumstances determination are not likely to 
undermine seriously the remedial effect of the antidumping duty 
order on China.
