The final phase of the investigations was scheduled by the Commission following notification of preliminary determinations by Commerce that imports of circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe from India, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam were subsidized and/or dumped within the meaning of section 703(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b(b)) and 733(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673b(b)).[3] 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 on June 22, 2012 (77 FR 37711). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on October 17, 2012, and all persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by counsel.
