SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background.—On February 9, 1994, the Department of Commerce issued antidumping duty orders on imports of forged stainless steel flanges from India and Taiwan (59 FR 5994). Following five-year reviews by Commerce and the Commission, effective August 16, 2000, Commerce issued a continuation of the antidumping duty orders on imports of forged stainless steel flanges from India and Taiwan (65 FR 49964). The Commission is now conducting second review to determine whether revocation of the orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to the domestic industry within a reasonably foreseeable time. It will assess the adequacy of interested party responses to this notice of institution to determine whether to conduct full reviews or expedited reviews. The Commission’s determinations in any expedited reviews will be based on the facts available, which may include information provided in response to this notice.

The Commission also excluded one domestic producer, Flow Components, from the Domestic Industry under the related parties provision. Two Commissioners defined the Domestic Industry differently in the original investigations. In its expedited five-year review determinations, the Commission defined the Domestic Industry as all domestic producers of stainless steel flanges, including both integrated producers and converters.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background.--On February 9, 1994, the 
Department of Commerce issued antidumping duty orders on imports of 
forged stainless steel flanges from India and Taiwan (59 FR 5994). 
Following five-year reviews by Commerce and the Commission, effective 
August 16, 2000, Commerce issued a continuation of the antidumping duty 
orders on imports of forged stainless steel flanges from India and 
Taiwan (65 FR 49964). The Commission is now conducting second review to 
determine whether revocation of the orders would be likely to lead to 
continuation or recurrence of material injury to the domestic industry 
within a reasonably foreseeable time. It will assess the adequacy of 
interested party responses to this notice of institution to determine 
whether to conduct full reviews or expedited reviews. The Commission's 
determinations in any expedited reviews will be based on the facts 
available, which may include information provided in response to this 
notice.
    Definitions.--The following definitions apply to these reviews:
    (1) Subject Merchandise is the class or kind of merchandise that is 
within the scope of the five-year reviews, as defined by the Department 
of Commerce.
    (2) The Subject Countries in these reviews are India and Taiwan.
    (3) The Domestic Like Product is the domestically produced product 
or products which are like, or in the absence of like, most similar in 
characteristics and uses with, the Subject Merchandise. In its original 
determinations, the Commission found one Domestic Like Product: 
stainless steel flanges, both finished and unfinished. In its expedited 
five-year review determinations, the Commission defined the Domestic 
Like Product as stainless steel flanges, co-extensive with Commerce's 
scope.
    (4) The Domestic Industry is the U.S. producers as a whole of the 
Domestic Like Product, or those producers whose collective output of 
the Domestic Like Product constitutes a major proportion of the total 
domestic production of the product. In its original determinations, the 
Commission found one Domestic Industry: the domestic producers of 
forgings and finished stainless steel flanges, consisting of both 
forger/finishers and converters. The Commission also excluded one 
domestic producer, Flow Components, from the Domestic Industry under 
the related parties provision. Two Commissioners defined the Domestic 
Industry differently in the original investigations. In its expedited 
five-year review determinations, the Commission defined the Domestic 
Industry as all domestic producers of stainless steel flanges, 
including both integrated producers and converters.
    (5) An Importer is any person or firm engaged, either directly or 
through a parent company or subsidiary, in importing the Subject 
Merchandise into the United States from a foreign manufacturer or 
through its selling agent.
    Participation in the reviews and public service list.--Persons, 
including industrial users of the Subject Merchandise and, if the 
merchandise is sold at the retail level, representative consumer 
organizations, wishing to participate in the reviews as parties must 
file an entry of appearance with the Secretary to the Commission, as

    Former Commission employees who are seeking to appear in Commission 
five-year reviews are reminded that they are required, pursuant to 19 
CFR 201.15, to seek Commission approval if the matter in which they are 
seeking to appear was pending in any manner or form during their 
Commission employment. The Commission is seeking guidance as to whether 
a second transition five-year review is the ``same particular matter'' 
as the underlying original investigation for purposes of 19 CFR 201.15 
and 18 U.S.C. 207, the post employment statute for Federal employees. 
Former employees may seek

[[Page 38196]]

informal advice from Commission ethics officials with respect to this

``personal and substantial.'' However, any informal consultation will 
not relieve former employees of the obligation to seek approval to 
appear from the Commission under its rule 201.15. For ethics advice,
