                INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION
                [Investigation Nos. 701-TA-662 and 731-TA-1554 (Final)]
                Pentafluoroethane (R-125) 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 pentafluoroethane (``R-125'') from China, provided
                for in subheading 2903.44.10 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\ \3\ \4\
                ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                 \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\ 87 FR 1110 and 87 FR 1117 (January 10, 2022).
                 \3\ Commissioner David S. Johanson dissenting.
                 \4\ 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 countervailing and
                antidumping duty orders on R-125 from China.
                ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Background
                 The Commission instituted these investigations effective January
                12, 2021, following receipt of petitions filed with the Commission and
                Commerce by Honeywell International, Inc., Charlotte, North Carolina.
                The final phase of the investigations was scheduled by the Commission
                following notification of preliminary determinations by Commerce that
                imports of R-125 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 September 7, 2021 (86 FR 50171).\5\
                The Commission conducted its hearing on December 14, 2021. All persons
                who requested the opportunity were permitted to participate.
                ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                 \5\ As revised by 86 FR 72619 (December 22, 2021).
                ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                 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.
                1673d(b)). It completed and filed its determinations in these
                investigations on February 23, 2022. The views of the Commission are
                contained in USITC Publication 5281 (February 2022), entitled
                Pentafluoroethane (R-125) from China: Investigation Nos. 701-TA-662 and
                731-TA-1554 (Final).
                 By order of the Commission.
                 Issued: February 24, 2022.
                Lisa Barton,
                Secretary to the Commission.
