USITC MAKES DETERMINATION IN FIVE-YEAR (SUNSET) REVIEW CONCERNING STEEL NAILS FROM CHINA

The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) today determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty order on steel nails from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time.

As a result of the Commission's affirmative determination, the existing order on imports of this product from China will remain in place.

All six Commissioners voted in the affirmative.

Today's action comes under the five-year (sunset) review process required by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act.

The Commission's public report Steel Nails from China (Inv. No. 731-TA-1114 (Review), USITC Publication 4442, December 2013) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the review.

Copies may be requested after January 9, 2014, by emailing pubrequest@usitc.gov, calling 202-205-2000, or writing to the Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E Street SW, Washington, DC 20436. Requests may be made by fax at 202-205-2104.
