The investigation was launched upon the application of local producers Nichia Steel Works, Ltd., NS Hokkai Seisen Co., Ltd., Galvart Japan Company Limited and Wire Techno, Ltd., alleging that imports of the given product are being dumped into Japan and that this is causing material injury to the domestic industry in Japan.

According to the statement, the investigation will be concluded within one year.
