The Commission instituted this investigation effective March 27, 2013, following receipt of a petition filed with the Commission and Commerce by Thomas Steel Strip Corporation, Warren, Ohio. The final phase of the investigation was scheduled by the Commission following notification of a preliminary determination by Commerce that imports of diffusion-annealed, nickel-plated flat-rolled steel products from Japan 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 December 11, 2013 (78 FR 75371). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on April 1, 2014, and all persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by counsel.

The Commission completed and filed its determination in this investigation on May 21, 2014. The views of the Commission are contained in USITC Publication 4466 (May 2014), entitled Diffusion-Annealed, Nickel-Plated Flat-Rolled Steel Products from Japan: Investigation No. 731-TA-1206 (Final).
