ANNOUNCEMENT 31 Mar 2011
In March, 2011 the United States initiated a new anti-dumping investigation; the resulting order was renewed in September, 2017.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
The United States International Trade Commission determined (http://www.usitc.gov/press_room/news_release/2012/er0419kk1.htm) on April 19, 2012 that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of certain steel nails from the United Arab Emirates that the U.S. Department of Commerce had determined to be sold in the United States at less than fair value. This investigation, which had begun with a petition filed on March 31, 2011 by the Mid Continent Nail Corporation, was thus terminated.
On September 14, 2017 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result of this affirmative determination, the existing antidumping duty order on imports of nails from the United Arab Emirates will remain in place.
