Effective September 25, 2017, the Commission established a general schedule for the conduct of the final phase of its investigations on colddrawn mechanical tubing, following preliminary determinations by Commerce that imports of the subject cold-drawn mechanical tubing were subsidized by the governments of China and India. 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 of October 5, 2017 (82 FR 46522). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on December 6, 2017, and all persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by counsel.

Schmidtlein did not vote in these antidumping duty investigations and Commissioner Jason E. Kearns did not participate in these investigations. 3 The Commission also finds that imports subject to Commerce’s affirmative critical circumstances determinations are not likely to undermine seriously the remedial effect of the antidumping duty orders on cold-drawn mechanical tubing from China, Italy, and Korea.

The Commission made these determinations pursuant to section 735(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)). It completed and filed its determinations in these investigations on May 31, 2018.
