SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) has determined, pursuant to section 751(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), that India Steel Works Limited (India Steel) is the successor-in-interest to Isibars Limited (Isibars). As a result, India Steel will be accorded the same treatment previously accorded to Isibars with regard to the antidumping duty order on stainless steel wire rods from India as of the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. DATES: Effective Date: November 5, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: hsrobinson on PROD1PC76 with NOTICES Background On December 1, 1993, the Department published an antidumping duty order on wire rods from India. See Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Stainless Steel Wire Rods from India, 58 FR 63335 (December 1, 1993). On August 4, 2008, the Department received a request for a changedcircumstances review of this order from India Steel to determine if, for purposes of the antidumping law, India Steel is the successor-in-interest to Isibars. On September 25, 2008, the Department published the notice of initiation for this changedcircumstances review and preliminarily found that India Steel is the successorin-interest to Isibars and should be treated as such for antidumping duty cash-deposit purposes. See Notice of Initiation and Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Antidumping Duty Review: Stainless Steel Wire Rods from India, 73 FR 55498 (September 25, 2008). We invited parties to comment on the preliminary results but received no comments or requests for a hearing. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:24 Nov 04, 2008 Jkt 217001 The merchandise under review is wire rods, which are hot-rolled or hotrolled annealed and/or pickled rounds, squares, octagons, hexagons or other shapes, in coils. Wire rods are made of alloy steels containing, by weight, 1.2 percent or less of carbon and 10.5 percent or more of chromium, with or without other elements. These products are only manufactured by hot-rolling and are normally sold in coiled form, and are of solid cross section. The majority of wire rods sold in the United States are round in cross-section shape, annealed, and pickled. The most common size is 5.5 millimeters in diameter. The wire rods subject to this order are currently classifiable under subheadings 7221.00.0005, 7221.00.0015, 7221.00.0030, 7221.00.0045, and 7221.00.0075 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise subject to the order is dispositive of whether the merchandise is covered by the order. Final Results of ChangedCircumstances Review For the reasons stated in the preliminary results and because the Department did not receive any comments on the preliminary results of this review, the Department continues to find that India Steel is the successorin-interest to Isibars for antidumping duty cash-deposit purposes. Instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (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 30.10 percent (i.e., Isibars’s cash-deposit rate, as published in Stainless Steel Wire Rod From India: Amended Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 47177 (August 12, 2005)). 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 (APOs) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.306.

pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act). The Department conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of

complete substantive response from CPA within the 30-day deadline in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). We did not receive responses 
from any other parties. Accordingly, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department has 
conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of the order.

Excluded from the scope of the order are live crawfish and other whole 
crawfish, whether boiled, frozen, fresh, or chilled. Also excluded are 
saltwater crawfish of any type, and parts thereof. Freshwater crawfish 
tail meat is currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule
