They are weld–neck, used for butt–weld line connection; 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 this order are cast stainless steel flanges. Cast stainless steel flanges generally are manufactured to specification ASTM A–351. The flanges subject to this order are currently classifiable under subheadings 7307.21.1000 and 7307.21.5000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTUS). 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 order. Final Results of the Review We determine the following percentage weighted–average margins exist for the period February 1, 2004, through January 31, 2005: Weighted Average Margin (percentage) Echjay Forgings, Ltd. ...............................................................................................

In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), where appropriate, we have calculated exporter/importer–specific assessment rates. To calculate these rates, we divided the total dumping margins for the reviewed sales by the total entered value of those reviewed sales for each importer. Id. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we shall instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping VerDate Aug<31>2005 20:16 May 19, 2006 Jkt 208001 0.38 210.00 duties any entries for which the assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent). The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of these final results of review. We will direct CBP to assess the appropriate assessment rate against the entered Customs values for the subject merchandise on each of the importer’s entries under the relevant order during the POR.

Announcement of meeting and comment period. ACTION: SUMMARY: The Office of Technology and Electronic Commerce (OTEC) invites stakeholders to submit comments on the development and implementation of ‘‘cross-border privacy rules’’ in the AsiaPacific Economic Cooperation Group (APEC). OTEC will also hold a public meeting at the U.S. Department of Commerce in Washington, DC on June 13, 2006. Written and electronic comments will be accepted until June 14, 2006. Topics to be discussed at the public meeting will include: the efficacy or need of cross-border privacy rules, obstacles to their creation, among other related issues. DATES: Written and electronic comments are due by June 14, 2006. If you would like to attend the meeting please respond by June 9, 2006. The public meeting will take place on June 13, 2006. The meeting time is TBD. ADDRESSES: All comments concerning this notice and requests to attend the meeting should be sent to the attention of Eric M. Holloway at one of the following addresses. See supplementary information for additional instructions on submitting comments. Eric Holloway: 1401 Constitution Ave. NW., Room 2806, Washington, DC 20230 eric.holloway@mail.doc.gov. Meeting Location: 1401 Constitution Ave. NW., Washington, DC 20230, Room TBD. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Eric Holloway, Policy Analyst, Office of Technology and Electronic Commerce, Office of Manufacturing and Services, International Trade Administration by telephone at (202) 482–4936 (this is not a toll-free number) or by e-mail at eric.holloway@mail.doc.gov. The principles-based ‘‘APEC Privacy Framework’’ (Framework) is an important tool in encouraging the development of appropriate information privacy protections and ensuring the free flow of information between the member economies of APEC. There are 21 APEC member economies: Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, the People’s Republic of China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 29315 New Guinea, Peru, Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Chinese Taipei, Thailand, the United States, and Vietnam. The Framework can be accessed on the APEC Web site at http:// 203.127.220.112/content/apec/apec _groups/som_special_task_groups/ electronic_ commerce.downloadlinks.0004. LinkURL.Download.ver5.1.9. This Framework, which aims at promoting electronic commerce throughout the Asia-Pacific region, is consistent with the core values of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s 1980 Guidelines on the Protection of Privacy and Trans-Border Flows of Personal Data, and reaffirms the value of privacy to individuals and to the information society. The Framework is also intended to provide clear guidance and direction to businesses in APEC economies on common privacy issues and the impact of privacy issues upon the way legitimate businesses are conducted. An important element of the Framework is the development and implementation of ‘‘cross-border privacy rules’’ (CBPRs) in the APEC region. The purpose of CBPRs would be to enable global organizations that collect, access, use, or process data in APEC member economies to develop and implement uniform approaches within their organizations for global access to and use of personal information. A uniform approach to CBPRs in APEC would allow for one approval system for CBPRs instead of the potential for approval systems for each of the 21 member economies. The Office of Technology and Electronic Commerce requests comments on the development and implementation of CBPRs in the APEC region. The Office of Technology and Electronic Commerce encourages comments on all aspects of CBPRs. General areas of discussion could include: (1) Impediments to the crossborder flow of information, (2) issues related to personal information protection, (3) the verification process for CBPRs’ compliance with the APEC Privacy Principles, (4) mechanisms for the approval of CBPRs, (5) mechanisms to demonstrate compliance with CBPRs, (6) mechanisms to enforce compliance of CBPRs, (7) mechanisms to ensure support of the concept of CBPRs by APEC member economies, and (8) mechanisms to foster cooperation among various regulatory bodies to resolve cross-border disputes related to CBPRs.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On March 7, 2006, the Department published the preliminary results 
of the 2004-2005 antidumping duty administrative review of certain 
forged stainless steel flanges from India. See Preliminary Results. The 
review covers Paramount Forge (Paramount) and Echjay Forgings Ltd. 
(Echjay), and the period February 1, 2004, through January 31, 2005. In 
the Preliminary Results, we invited parties to comment. We received no 
comments.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this order 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 connection; 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 this order are cast 
stainless steel flanges. Cast stainless steel flanges generally are 
manufactured to specification ASTM A-351. The flanges subject to this 
order are currently classifiable under subheadings 7307.21.1000 and 
7307.21.5000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTUS). 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 order.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Liquidation

    The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), where appropriate, we 
have calculated exporter/importer-specific assessment rates. To 
calculate these rates, we divided the total dumping margins for the 
reviewed sales by the total entered value of those reviewed sales for 
each importer. Id. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we shall instruct 
CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries for 
which the assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent). 
The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly 
to CBP within 15 days of publication of these final results of review. 
We will direct CBP to assess the appropriate assessment rate against 
the entered Customs values for the subject merchandise on each of the 
importer's entries under the relevant order during the POR.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication, as 
provided by section 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Tariff Act): (1) For the companies named above, the cash deposit 
rates will be the rates for these firms shown above, except that, for 
exporters with de minimis margins (i.e., less than 0.5%), no deposit 
will be required; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies 
not listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be

[[Page 29315]]

the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if 
the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or 
the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the 
manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for 
the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) 
the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 162.14 percent. This rate is the ``All Others'' rate 
from the amended final determination in the LTFV investigation. See 
Amended Final Determination and Antidumping Duty Order; Certain Forged 
Stainless Steel Flanges From India, 59 FR 5994 (February 9, 1994). 
These deposit requirements shall remain in effect until the publication 
of the final results of the next administrative review.
    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping or countervailing duties 
prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. 
Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary's 
presumption that reimbursement of antidumping or countervailing duties 
occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely written 
notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to 
comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is 
subject to sanction.

sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act and 19 CFR 
351.221(b)(5).
