Background

    The Commission instituted these investigations effective February 
4, 2019, following receipt of petitions filed with the Commission and 
Commerce. The petitioner in these investigations is the American 
Institute of Steel Construction, LLC Full Member Subgroup, Chicago, 
Illinois. The final phase of the investigations was scheduled by the 
Commission following notification of preliminary determinations by 
Commerce that imports of fabricated structural steel from China and 
Mexico were subsidized within the meaning of section 703(b) of the Act 
(19 U.S.C. 1671b(b)) and sold at LTFV within the meaning of 733(b) of 
the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673b(b)).\3\ 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 23, 2019 (84 FR 49765). The hearing was held in Washington,

determinations of sales at LTFV in its investigations regarding Canada, 
China, and Mexico, affirmative final determinations in its 
countervailing duty investigations regarding China and Mexico, and a 
negative final determination in its countervailing duty investigation 
concerning Canada. Accordingly, the Commission terminated its 
countervailing duty investigation concerning fabricated structural 
steel from Canada (85 FR 8321).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Commerce made negative preliminary determinations with 
respect to imports of fabricated structural steel from Canada which 
were alleged to be sold at LTFV (84 FR 47481) and subsidized by the 
government of Canada (84 FR 33232).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 March 16, 2020. The views of the Commission are 
contained in USITC Publication 5031 (March 2020), entitled Fabricated 
Structural Steel from Canada, China, and Mexico: Investigation Nos.
