The scope includes five general types of flanges. They are weld–neck, used for butt–weld line connections; threaded, used for threaded line connections; slip–on and lap joint, used with stub–ends/ butt– weld line connections; socket weld, used to fit pipe into a machined recession; and blind, used to seal off a line. The sizes of the flanges within the scope range generally from one to six inches; however, all sizes of the above– described merchandise are included in the scope. Specifically excluded from the scope of these orders are cast stainless steel flanges. Cast stainless steel flanges generally are manufactured to specification ASTM A–351.

Five-year (Sunset) Reviews of Antidumping Duty Orders; Final Results

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On July 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
initiated sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on forged 
stainless steel flanges (flanges) from India and Taiwan, pursuant to 
section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). On the 
basis of the notice of intent to participate and an adequate 
substantive response filed on behalf of domestic interested parties and 
no responses from respondent interested parties, the Department 
conducted expedited sunset reviews. As a result of these sunset 
reviews, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty 
orders on flanges from India and Taiwan would likely lead to 
continuation or recurrence of dumping at the levels listed below in the 
section entitled ``Final Results of Reviews.''

EFFECTIVE DATE: November 4, 2005.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 1, 2005, the Department initiated sunset reviews of the 
antidumping duty orders on flanges from India and Taiwan pursuant to 
section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-year (``Sunset'') 
Reviews, 70 FR 38101 (July 1, 2005). The Department received a notice 
of intent to participate from two domestic interested parties, Gerlin, 
Inc. and Maass Flange Corporation (collectively, petitioners), within 
the deadline specified in 19 C.F.R. Sec.  351.218(d)(1)(i). Petitioners 
claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as 
U.S. producers of a domestic like product. We received a complete 
substantive response from petitioners within the 30-day deadline 
specified in 19 C.F.R. Sec.  351.218(d)(3)(i). However, we did not 
receive responses from any respondent interested parties. As a result, 
pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 C.F.R. Sec.  
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department conducted expedited sunset 
reviews of the orders.

Scope of the Orders

    The products covered by these orders are certain forged stainless 
steel flanges, both finished and not finished, generally manufactured 
to specification ASTM A-182, and made in alloys such as 304, 304L, 316, 
and 316L. The scope includes five general types of flanges. They are 
weld-neck, used for butt-weld line connections; threaded, used for 
threaded line connections; slip-on and lap joint, used with stub-ends/ 
butt-weld line connections; socket weld, used to fit pipe into a 
machined recession; and blind, used to seal off a line. The sizes of 
the flanges within the scope range generally from one to six inches; 
however, all sizes of the above-described merchandise are included in 
the scope. Specifically excluded from the scope of these orders are 
cast stainless steel flanges. Cast stainless steel flanges generally 
are manufactured to specification ASTM A-351. The flanges subject to 
these orders are currently classifiable under subheadings 7307.21.1000 
and 7307.21.5000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and 
customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under 
review is dispositive of whether or not the merchandise is covered by 
the scope of the orders.
    These sunset reviews cover imports from all manufacturers and 
exporters of flanges from India and Taiwan except Viraj Forgings, Ltd., 
for which the order on flanges from India was revoked.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in this case are addressed in the ``Issues and 
Decision Memorandum'' from Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant 
Secretary for Import Administration, to Joseph A. Spetrini, Acting 
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated October 31, 2005

issues discussed in the Decision

dumping and the magnitude of the margin likely to prevail if the orders 
were revoked. Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues 
raised in these sunset reviews and the corresponding recommendation in

Department building.
