On the basis of the record 
developed in the subject investigation, the United States International Trade Commission (Commission) determines, pursuant to section 735(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)) (the Act), that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of imports from the United Arab Emirates of certain steel nails, provided for in subheadings 7317.00.55, 7317.00.65, and 7317.00.75 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, that have been found by the Department of Commerce (Commerce) to be sold in the United States at less than fair value (LTFV).
The Commission instituted this investigation effective March 31, 2011, following receipt of a petition filed with the Commission and Commerce by Mid Continent Nail Corporation, Poplar Bluff, MO. The final phase of the investigation was scheduled by the Commission following notification of a preliminary determination by Commerce that imports of certain steel nails from the United Arab Emirates were being sold at LTFV within the meaning of section 733(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673b(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 November 23, 2011 (76 FR 72438). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on March 20, 2012, and all persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by counsel.
The Commission transmitted its determination in this investigation to the Secretary of Commerce on May 2, 2012. The views of the Commission are contained in USITC Publication 4321 (May 2012), entitled Certain Steel Nails from the United Arab Emirates: Investigation No. 731-TA-1185 (Final).
Issued: May 2, 2012.
By order of the Commission.
