Continuation of Antidumping Duty Orders: Forged Stainless Steel Flanges from India and Taiwan, 3457-3458 [E6-724]

Download as PDF erjones on PROD1PC61 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 14 / Monday, January 23, 2006 / Notices included in the Census Bureau’s County Business Patterns (CBP) publications. CBP publications provide annual data on establishment counts, employment, and payroll for all sectors of the economy at national, State, and county levels. The economic census is the primary source of facts about the structure and functioning of the Nation’s economy featuring industry and geographic detail. Economic census statistics and their derivatives serve as part of the framework for the national accounts and provide essential information for government, business, and the general public. The Federal Government uses census information as an important part of the framework for the national income and product accounts, inputoutput tables, economic indexes, and other composite measures that serve as the factual basis for economic policymaking, planning, and program administration. Further, the census provides sampling frames and benchmarks for current surveys of business which track short-term economic trends, serve as economic indicators, and contribute critical source data for current estimates of gross domestic product. State and local governments rely on the economic census as a unique source of small geographic area economic statistics for use in policy-making, planning, and program administration. Finally, industry, business, academia, and the general public use information from the economic census for evaluating markets, preparing business plans and making business decisions; conducting economic research, including forecasting and modeling; and establishing benchmarks for their own sample surveys. The failure to collect this information would result in less reliable source data and benchmarks reflecting today’s economy for the national accounts, input-output tables, and other measures of economic activity. This would lead to a substantial degradation in the quality of these important statistics. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit, Not-for-profit institutions. Frequency: Every 5 years.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 1, 2005, the Department initiated and the Commission

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), 
and Forged Stainless Steel Flanges From India and Taiwan, 70 FR 38195 
(July 1, 2005). As a result of its review, the Department found that 
revocation of the antidumping duty orders would likely lead to 
continuation or recurrence of dumping and notified the Commission of 
the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail were the orders to be 
revoked. See Forged Stainless Steel Flanges from India and Taiwan; 
Expedited Five-year (Sunset) Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders; 
Final Results, 70 FR 67137 (November 4, 2005).
    On December 7, 2005, the Commission determined, pursuant to section 
751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on 
flanges from India and Taiwan would likely lead to continuation or 
recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States 
within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Forged Stainless Steel 
Flanges from Taiwan, 70 FR 76074 (December 22, 2005), and USITC 
Publication 3827 (December 2005) (Investigations Nos. 731-TA-639 and 
640 (Second Review)).

    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.

Determination

    As a result of the determinations by the Department and the 
Commission that revocation of these antidumping duty orders would be 
likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and material 
injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to section 
751(d)(2) of the Act, the Department hereby orders the continuation of 
the antidumping duty orders on flanges from India and Taiwan.
    U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect 
antidumping duty deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry 
for all imports of subject merchandise 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. The
