SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) has determined, pursuant to section 751(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Tariff Act), that India Steel Works, Ltd. (India Steel) is the successor-in-interest to Isibars, Ltd. (Isibars). As a result, India Steel will be accorded the same treatment previously accorded to Isibars in regard to the antidumping duty order on certain forged stainless steel flanges from India as of the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. DATES: Effective Date: July 10, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Fred Baker or Robert James, AD/CVD Operations, Office 7, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–2924 or (202) 482– 0649, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES AGENCY: Background On February 26, 2008, India Steel requested that the Department conduct a changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel flanges from India pursuant to section 751(b) of the Tariff Act and 19 CFR 351.216. In its request, India Steel claimed that the entity previously VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:58 Jul 09, 2008 Jkt 214001 known to the Department as Isibars had changed its name to India Steel, and that India Steel should therefore be assigned the same antidumping duty cash deposit rate as Isibars. In response to this request, the Department initiated a changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty order on forged stainless steel flanges from India. See Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Forged Stainless Steel Flanges from India, 73 FR 14959 (March 20, 2008). On March 20, 2008, the Department issued a questionnaire to India Steel requesting information about its relation to Isibars. The Department received India Steel’s response on April 16, 2008. On May 19, 2008, the Department preliminarily determined that India Steel was the successor-ininterest to Isibars. See Certain Forged Stainless Steel Flanges from India; Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 73 FR 28798 (May 19, 2008) (Preliminary Results). We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. 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 abovedescribed 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 (HTS). Although the HTS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under review is dispositive. Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review For the reasons stated in the Preliminary Results, and because the Department did not receive any PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39655 comments during the comment period following the preliminary results of this review, the Department continues to find that India Steel is the successor-ininterest to Isibars for antidumping duty cash deposit purposes. Instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection The Department will instruct CBP to suspend liquidation of all shipments of the subject merchandise produced and exported by India Steel entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice at zero percent (i.e., Isibar’s cash deposit rate). This deposit rate shall remain in effect until publication of the final results of the next administrative review in which India Steel participates. This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.306. Timely written notification of the return/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 sanctionable violation. This notice in accordance with sections 751(b) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act, and section 351.221(c)(3)(i) of the Department’s regulations. Dated: July 2, 2008. David M.

Background

    On March 5, 2008, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published a notice for the preliminary results of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on heavy forged hand tools from 
the People's Republic of China, covering the period February 1, 2006, 
through January 31, 2007. See Heavy Forged Hand Tools, Finished or 
Unfinished, With or Without Handles, From the People's Republic of 
China: Preliminary Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, 73 FR 11867 (March 5, 2008). The final results for this 
administrative review are currently due no later than July 3, 2008.

Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department issue the final results of an 
administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the 
preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete 
the review within that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act 
allows the Department to extend the deadline for the final results to a 
maximum of 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results are 
published.
    The Department requires additional time to properly consider the 
issues raised in case briefs from interested parties such as the proper 
labeling of certain products as noted in the verification findings of 
the third-country reseller.
    Thus, it is not practicable to complete these reviews within the 
original time limit. Therefore, the Department is extending the time 
limit for completion of the final results of this review by 60 days, in 
accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. The final results are 
now due no later than September 2, 2008.\1\ We are issuing and
