Determination

    On the basis of the record \1\ developed in the subject 
investigation, 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 glycine from Thailand, provided for in subheadings 
2922.49.43 and 2922.49.80 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States, that have been found by the U.S. Department of Commerce 
(``Commerce'') to be sold in the United States at less than fair value 
(``LTFV'').2 3 4

    \1\ The record is defined in sec. 207.2(f) of the Commission's 
Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 207.2(f)).

    \3\ Commissioners Randolph J. Stayin and Amy A. Karpel did not 
participate in this investigation.
    \4\ The Commission also finds that imports subject to Commerce's

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Background

    The Commission, pursuant to section 735(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 
1673d(b)), instituted this investigation effective March 28, 2018, 
following receipt of petitions filed with the Commission and Commerce 
by Chattem Chemicals Inc., Chattanooga, Tennessee, and GEO Specialty 
Chemicals, Inc., Lafayette, Indiana. Effective October 31, 2018, the 
Commission established a general schedule \5\ for the conduct of the 
final phase of its antidumping and countervailing duty investigations 
on glycine from China, India, Japan, and Thailand, following 
notification of preliminary determinations by Commerce that imports of 
glycine from China and India were subsidized within the meaning of 
section 703(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C.1671b(b)) and that imports of 
glycine from India and Japan were being sold at LTFV within the meaning 
of 733(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673b(b)).\6\ 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 December 3, 2018 (83 FR 62345).\7\ The hearing was held in 
Washington, DC, on April 30, 2019 and all persons who requested the 
opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by counsel. On May 1, 
2019, Commerce published its final affirmative determinations for its 
countervailing duty investigations for glycine from China and India and 
also for its antidumping duty investigations for glycine from India and 
Japan.\8\ On April 24, 2019, Commerce postponed until further notice 
the issuance of the final determination regarding glycine from 
Thailand. (See Memorandum from Gary Taverman, Deputy Assistant 
Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to 
Jeffrey Kessler, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, 
``Postponement of the Final Determinations in the Less-Than-Fair Value 
and Countervailing Duty Investigations of Glycine from Thailand,'' 
April 24, 2019.) The Commission issued its affirmative determinations 
for its countervailing duty investigations for glycine from China and 
India and its antidumping duty investigations for India and Japan on 
June 14, 2019.\9\ Following notification of a final determination by 
Commerce that imports of glycine from Thailand were being sold at LTFV 
within the meaning of section 735(a) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 
1673d(a)),\10\ notice of the supplemental scheduling of the final phase 
of the Commission's antidumping duty investigation with respect to 
glycine from Thailand was given by posting copies of the notice in the 
Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade Commission, 
Washington, DC, and by publishing notice in the Federal Register of 
August 23, 2019 (84 FR 44334).

    \5\ 83 FR 62345, December 3, 2018.
    \6\ Commerce issued preliminary negative determinations on its 
antidumping and countervailing duty investigations for glycine from 
Thailand (83 FR 54717 and 83 FR 44861).
    \7\ Due to the lapse in appropriations and ensuing cessation of 
Commission operations, the Commission published its revised schedule 
on February 12, 2019.
    \8\ 84 FR 18489, 84 FR 18482, 84 FR 18487, and 84 FR 18484, 
respectively.
    \9\ 84 FR 29238, June 21, 2019.
    \10\ On August 5, 2019, Commerce published in the Federal 
Register its final affirmative determination of sales at less than 
fair value and of critical circumstances for glycine from Thailand 
(84 FR 37998) as well as its final negative countervailing duty 
determination and final negative critical circumstances 
determination for glycine from Thailand (84 FR 38007). Consequently, 
effective August 5, 2019, the Commission terminated its 
countervailing duty investigation concerning glycine from Thailand 
(84 FR 43618, August 21, 2019).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Commission made this determination pursuant to section 735(b) 
of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)). It completed and filed its 
determination in this investigation on October 8, 2019. The views of
