On the basis of the record  developed in the subject investigation, the United States International Trade Commission (Commission) determines, pursuant to section 705(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b)) (the Act), that an industry in the United States is not materially injured or threatened with material injury, and the establishment of an industry in the United States is not materially retarded, by reason of imports from Argentina of Ni-resist piston inserts, provided for in subheading 8409.99.91 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, that have been found by the Department of Commerce (Commerce) to be subsidized by the Government of Argentina.
The Commission instituted this investigation effective January 26, 2009, following receipt of a petition filed with the Commission and Commerce by Korff Holdings LLC d/b/a Quaker City Castings, Salem, OH. The final phase of the investigation was scheduled by the Commission following notification of a preliminary determination by Commerce that imports of Ni-resist piston inserts from Argentina were being subsidized within the meaning of section 703(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b(b)). Notice of the scheduling of the final phase of the Commission's investigation 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 July 17, 2009 (74 FR 34784, July 6, 2009). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on September 17, 2009, and all persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by counsel.
