INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION

[Investigation Nos. 701-TA-541 and 731-TA-1284 and 1286 (Final)]


Cold-Rolled Steel Flat Products From China and Japan; 
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 cold-rolled steel flat products from China and 
Japan, provided for in subheadings 7209.15, 7209.16, 7209.17, 7209.18, 
7209.25, 7209.26, 7209.27, 7209.28, 7209.90, 7210.70, 7211.23, 7211.29, 
7211.90, 7212.40, 7225.50, 7225.99, and 7226.92 of the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS''),\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\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The record is defined in sec. 207.2(f) of the Commission's 
Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 207.2(f)).
    \2\ Commerce's scope indicates that such imports may also enter 
under the HTS subheadings 7210.90, 7212.50, 7215.10, 7215.50, 
7215.90, 7217.10, 7217.90, 7225.19, 7226.19, 7226.99, 7228.50, 
7228.60, and 7229.90 (81 FR 32721, May 24, 2016; 81 FR 32725, May 
24, 2016; and 81 FR 32729, May 24, 2016).
    \3\ All six Commissioners voted in the affirmative. The 
Commission also finds that imports from China and Japan 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 cold-rolled steel flat 
products from China and the antidumping duty order on such products 
from Japan.

Chester, Ohio), ArcelorMittal USA LLC (Chicago, Illinois), Nucor 
Corporation (Charlotte, North Carolina), Steel Dynamics, Inc. (Fort 
Wayne, Indiana), and United States Steel Corporation (Pittsburgh, 
Pennsylvania). The final phase of the investigations was scheduled by

Commerce that imports of cold-rolled steel flat products from China 
were subsidized within the meaning of section 703(b) of the Act (19 
U.S.C. 1671b(b)) and imports of cold-rolled steel flat products from 
China and 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

Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade Commission,

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 July 7, 2016. The views of the Commission are 
contained in USITC Publication 4619 (July 2016), entitled Cold-Rolled 
Steel Flat Products from China and Japan (Investigation Nos. 701-TA-541
