Background On March 27, 2020, Worthington Industries, Columbus, Ohio, filed petitions with the Commission and Commerce, alleging that an industry in the United States is materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of subsidized and LTFV imports of non-refillable steel cylinders from China. Accordingly, effective March 27, 2020, the Commission instituted countervailing duty investigation No. 701–TA–644 and antidumping duty investigation No. 731–TA–1494 (Preliminary). Notice of the institution of the Commission’s investigations and of a conference through written testimony 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 of April 2, 2020 (85 FR 18587).
