On July 30, 2007, the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) preliminarily determined that there is a reasonable indication that imports of nails from the UAE are materially injuring the United States industry. See ITC Investigation Nos. 731–TA–1114– 1115 (Publication No. 3939). On August 24, 2007, we selected Dubai Wire FZE (DW), the largest producer/exporter of nails from the UAE, as the mandatory respondent in this proceeding. See Memorandum to James Maeder, Director Office 2, from David Goldberger and Kate Johnson, Senior International Trade Compliance Analysts, regarding ‘‘Antidumping Duty Investigation of Certain Steel Nails from the United Arab Emirates—Selection of Respondents,’’ dated August 24, 2007. We subsequently issued the antidumping questionnaire to DW and its affiliate Global Fasteners Ltd. (GFL) on August 27, 2007. DW submitted its Section A and C questionnaire responses on October 9, 2007, and October 18, 2007, respectively. We received a response to Section D of the questionnaire on October 25, 2007. We issued and received responses to our supplemental questionnaires from December 2007 through January 2008. On October 26, 2007, the petitioners 1 filed a targeted dumping allegation against DW under section 777A(d)(1)(B) of the Act. The Department requested additional information from the petitioners with respect to their targeted dumping allegation on November 30, 2007. The petitioners responded to this request on December 10, 2007. DW submitted comments to dispute the allegation on December 20, 2007. See ‘‘Targeted Dumping’’ section below for further discussion. On November 1, 2007, pursuant to sections 733(c)(1)(B) and (c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f), the petitioners requested that the Department postpone the preliminary determination due to the complexities 1 The petitioners are Mid Continent Nail Corporation, Davis Wire Corporation, Gerdau Ameristeel Corporation (Atlas Steel & Wire Division), Maze Nails (Division of W.H.
