SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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 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-in-interest 
to Isibars. See Certain Forged Stainless Steel Flanges from India; 
Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review,

comment on the Preliminary Results. We received no comments.

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

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 (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 comments during the comment period 
following the preliminary results of this review, the Department 
continues to find that India Steel is the successor-in-interest to 
Isibars for antidumping duty cash deposit purposes.

Instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection
