INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION

[Investigation Nos. 701-TA-637 and 731-TA-1471 (Final)]


Large Vertical Shaft Engines From China

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 large vertical shaft engines from China, provided 
for in subheadings 8407.90.10, 8407.90.90, and 8409.91.99 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''), and to be subsidized 
by the government of China.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \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\ The Commission also finds that imports subject to Commerce's 
affirmative critical circumstances determination are not likely to 
undermine seriously the remedial effect of the antidumping duty 
order on large vertical shaft engines from China.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wisconsin). The final phase of the investigations was scheduled by the 
Commission following notification of preliminary determinations by 
Commerce that imports of large vertical shaft engines 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

conference on January 5, 2021. All persons who requested the

    The Commission made these determinations pursuant to Sec. Sec.  
705(b) and 735(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b) and 19 U.S.C.
