SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Effective May 17, 2018, the Commission established a general schedule for the conduct of the final phase of its investigations on forged steel fittings from China, Italy, and Taiwan,[1] following preliminary determinations by the U.S. Department of Commerce (“Commerce”) that imports of subject forged steel fittings from China, Italy, and Taiwan were being sold at less than fair value (LTFV) in the United States.[2] 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 of June 4, 2018 (83 FR 25715). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on August 2, 2018, and all persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by counsel. The Commission subsequently issued its final affirmative determination regarding LTFV imports from Taiwan on September 14, 2018 (83 FR 47640, September 20, 2018). Commerce has issued final affirmative determinations with respect to the subject forged steel fittings from China [3] and Italy.[4] Accordingly, the Commission currently is issuing a supplemental schedule for its antidumping and countervailing duty investigations on imports of forged steel fittings from China and Italy.

This supplemental schedule is as follows: The deadline for filing supplemental party comments on Commerce's final antidumping and countervailing duty determinations is October 19, 2018. Supplemental party comments may address only Commerce's final antidumping and countervailing duty determinations regarding imports of forged steel fittings from China and Italy. These supplemental final comments may not contain new factual information and may not exceed five (5) pages in length. The supplemental staff report in the final phase of these investigations regarding subject imports from China and Italy will be placed in the nonpublic record on October 30, 2018; and a public version will be issued thereafter.Start Printed Page 53296

For further information concerning these investigations see the Commission's notice cited above and the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, part 201, subparts A and B (19 CFR part 201), and part 207, subparts A and C (19 CFR part 207).

Additional written submissions to the Commission, including requests pursuant to section 201.12 of the Commission's rules, shall not be accepted unless good cause is shown for accepting such submissions, or unless the submission is pursuant to a specific request by a Commissioner or Commission staff.

In accordance with sections 201.16(c) and 207.3 of the Commission's rules, each document filed by a party to the investigations must be served on all other parties to the investigations (as identified by either the public or BPI service list), and a certificate of service must be timely filed. The Secretary will not accept a document for filing without a certificate of service.

Authority: These investigations are being conducted under authority of title VII of the Tariff Act of 1930; this notice is published pursuant to section 207.21 of the Commission's rules.
