25, 2017, the Commission established a general schedule for the conduct 
of the final phase of its investigations on cold-drawn 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

final determinations by Commerce that imports of cold-drawn mechanical 
tubing from China, Germany, India, Italy, Korea, and Switzerland were 
being sold at LTFV within the meaning of section 735(b) of the Act (19 
U.S.C. 1673d(a)), notice of the supplemental scheduling of the final 
phase of the Commission's antidumping duty investigations 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 April 23, 2018 (83 FR 17674).

of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)). It completed and filed its 
determinations in these investigations on May 31, 2018. The views of 
the Commission are contained in USITC Publication 4790 (May 2018),
