SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Scope.--For purposes of this investigation, the Department of 
Commerce has defined the subject merchandise as ``carton-closing 
staples. Carton-closing staples may be manufactured from carbon, alloy, 
or stainless steel wire, and are included in the scope of the 
investigation regardless of whether they are uncoated or coated, 
regardless of the type of coating. Carton-closing staples are generally 
made to American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) specification 
ASTM D1974/D1974M-16, but can also be made to other specifications. 
Regardless of specification, however, all carton-closing staples 
meeting the scope description are included in the scope. Carton-closing 
staples include stick staple products, often referred to as staple 
strips, and roll staple products, often referred to as coils. Stick 
staples are lightly cemented or lacquered together to facilitate 
handling and loading into stapling machines. Roll staples are taped 
together along their crowns. Carton-closing staples are covered 
regardless of whether they are imported in stick form or roll form. 
Carton-closing staples vary by the size of the wire, the width of the 
crown, and the length of the leg. The nominal leg length ranges from 
0.4095 inch to 1.375 inches and the nominal crown width ranges from 
1.125 inches to 1.375 inches. The size of the wire used in the 
production of carton-closing staples varies from 0.029 to 0.064 inch
