[Investigation No. 731-TA-1059 (Final)]

Hand Trucks and Certain Parts Thereof From China


    On the basis of the record \1\ developed in the subject 
investigation, the United States International Trade Commission 
(Commission) determines, pursuant to section 735(b) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)) (the Act), that an industry in the United 
States is threatened with material injury by reason of imports from 
China of hand trucks and certain parts thereof, provided for in 
subheadings 8716.80.50 and 8716.90.50 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule 
of the United States, that have been found by the Department of 
Commerce (Commerce) to be sold in the United States at less than fair 
value (LTFV). The Commission further determines that it would not have 
found material injury but for the suspension of liquidation.

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


    The Commission instituted this investigation effective November 13, 
2003, following receipt of a petition filed with the Commission and 
Commerce by Gleason Industrial Products, Inc., Los Angeles, CA. The 
final phase of the investigation was scheduled by the Commission 
following notification of a preliminary determination by Commerce that 
imports of hand trucks and certain parts thereof from China were being 
sold at LTFV within the meaning of section 733(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 
1673b(b)). Notice of the scheduling of the final phase of the 
Commission's investigation 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 of 
June 8, 2004 (69 FR 32042). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on 
October 7, 2004, and all persons who requested the opportunity were 
permitted to appear in person or by counsel.
    The Commission transmitted its determination in this investigation 
to the Secretary of Commerce on November 22, 2004. The views of the 
Commission are contained in USITC Publication 3737 (November 2004), 
entitled Hand Trucks and Certain Parts Thereof From China: 
Investigation No. 731-TA-1059 (Final).

    Issued: November 24, 2004.

    By order of the Commission.
Marilyn R. Abbott,
Secretary to the Commission.
