Background

    The Commission instituted these investigations effective May 11, 
2011, following receipt of a petition filed with the Commission and 
Commerce by Norris Cylinder Company, Longview, Texas. The final phase 
of the investigations was scheduled by the Commission following 
notification of preliminary determinations by Commerce that imports of 
high pressure steel cylinders from China were subsidized within the 
meaning of section 703(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b(b)) and dumped 
within the meaning of 733(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673b(b)). 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 January 23, 2012 (77 FR 3281). The 
hearing was held in Washington, DC, on May 1, 2012, and all persons who 
requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by 
counsel.
    The Commission transmitted its determinations in these 
investigations to the Secretary of Commerce on June 11, 2012. The views 
of the Commission are contained in USITC Publication 4328 (June 2012), 
entitled High Pressure Steel Cylinders from China: Investigation Nos. 
701-TA-480 and 731-TA-1188 (Final).
