SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain forged stainless steel flanges (stainless steel flanges) from India manufactured by Pradeep Metals Limited (Pradeep), Echjay Forgings Pvt., Ltd. (Echjay) and Hotmetal Forge (India) Pvt, Ltd. (Hotmetal). The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2007, through January 31, 2008. We preliminarily determine that Pradeep had no bona fide U.S. sales during the period of review (POR), and therefore, we intend to rescind the review. We are also rescinding the review with respect to Echjay and Hotmetal because they both withdrew their requests for the review, and no other party requested a review of these companies. We invite interested parties to comment on this preliminary intent to rescind with respect to Pradeep. Parties who submit argument in these proceedings are requested to submit with the argument: (1) a statement of the issues; and (2) a brief summary of the argument.
