Certain Mobile Access Equipment and Subassemblies from China Threaten U.S. Industry, Says USITC
The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) today determined that U.S. industry is threatened with material injury by reason of imports of certain mobile access equipment and subassemblies from China that the U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce) has determined are 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 determination, Commerce will issue antidumping duty orders on imports of this product from China.
 
The Commission’s public report Certain Mobile Access Equipment and Subassemblies from China (Inv. No. 731-TA-1557 (Final), USITC Publication 5317, April 2022) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigations.
 
The report will be available by April 14, 2022; when available, it may be accessed on the USITC website at: http://pubapps.usitc.gov/applications/publogs/qry_publication_loglist.asp.
