Trade relations   An investigation initiated on June 5

The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) determined that large residential washers are being imported into the United States in such increased quantities as to be a substantial cause of serious injury to the domestic industry.

The determination was made in the context of an investigation initiated on June 5, 2017, in response to a petition filed by Whirlpool Corporation.

The Commission’s determination resulted from a 4-0 vote. Chairman Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, Vice Chairman David S. Johanson, and Commissioners Irving A. Williamson and Meredith M. Broadbent made affirmative determinations.

As a result of this vote, the Commission will proceed to the remedy phase of the investigation. The Commission will hold a public hearing on remedy on October 19, 2017.

The Commission will submit its report containing its injury determination, remedy recommendations, certain additional findings, and the basis for them to the President by December 4, 2017.
