December 3 is the target date for the International Trade Commission's Final Report on the antidumping investigation against Chinese imports of malleable iron fittings. Responding to complaints initiated by Anvil International and Ward Manufacturing, the ITC issued a preliminary determination of injury and leveled duties ranging from about 5 percent to more than 146 percent against various Chinese manufacturers.

A hearing is scheduled for Oct. 23 in connection with the final phase of this investigation. Requests to appear at the hearing should be filed in writing with the ITC no later than Oct. 16. For further information, contact Cynthia Trainor at 202-205-1810.
