Nature of Notice: Initiation of AD investigation A-570-055, effective 27 April 2017.
Link: (https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2017-04-27/pdf/2017-08526.pdf)
Summary: The scope of this investigation covers carton-closing staples, which may be manufactured from carbon, alloy or stainless steel wire. Such staples are included in the scope regardless of whether they are uncoated or coated and regardless of the type of coating. Carton-closing staples are generally made to American Society for Testing and Materials specification ASTM D1974/D1974M–16, but can also be made to other specifications. Regardless of specification, however, all carton-closing staples meeting the scope description are included in the scope.

Carton-closing staples include stick staple products, often referred to as staple strips, as well as roll staple products, often referred to as coils. Stick staples are lightly cemented or lacquered together to facilitate handling and loading into stapling machines. Roll staples are taped together along their crowns. Carton-closing staples are covered regardless of whether they are imported in stick form or roll form. They vary by the size of the wire, the width of the crown and the length of the leg. The nominal leg length ranges from 0.4095 inch to 1.375 inches and the nominal crown width ranges from 1.125 inches to 1.375 inches. The size of the wire used in the production of carton-closing staples varies from 0.029 to 0.064 inch (nominal thickness) by 0.064 to 0.100 inch (nominal width).

The USITC will issue its preliminary injury determination by 15 May (a vote has been scheduled for 12 May).
