    The Commission instituted these investigations effective April 10, 
2019, following receipt of petitions filed with the Commission and 
Commerce by the Coalition for Fair Trade in Ceramic Tile. The final 
phase of the investigations was scheduled by the Commission following 
notification of preliminary determinations by Commerce that imports of 
ceramic tile from China 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)). 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 2, 2019 (84 FR 66010). In 
light of the restrictions on access to the Commission building due to 
the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commission conducted its hearing (originally 
scheduled for April 2, 2020) through a series of written questions, 
submissions of written testimony, written responses to questions, 
posthearing briefs, and closing arguments/rebuttal remarks via 
videoconference . All persons who requested the opportunity were 
permitted to participate.
    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 May 21, 2020. The views of the Commission are 
contained in USITC Publication 5053 (May 2020), entitled Ceramic Tile 
from China: Investigation Nos. 701-TA-621 and 731-TA-1447 (Final).
