USITC Votes to Continue investigations Concerning Mobile Access Equipment from China

The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) today determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured  by reason of imports of mobile access equipment from China that are allegedly subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value.

Chair Jason E. Kearns, Vice Chair Randolph J. Stayin, and Commissioners David S. Johanson, Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, and Amy A. Karpel voted in the affirmative. 

As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue its investigations of imports of mobile access equipment from China, with its preliminary countervailing duty determination due on or about May 24, 2021, and its preliminary antidumping duty determination due on or about August 5, 2021.

The Commission’s public report Mobile Access Equipment from China (Inv. Nos. 701-TA-665 and 731-TA-1557 (Preliminary), USITC Publication 5186, April 2021) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigations.

The report will be available after May 10, 2021; when available, it may be accessed on the USITC website at:  https://www.usitc.gov/commission_publications_library.
