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 these orders are cast stainless steel flanges. Cast stainless steel flanges generally are manufactured to specification ASTM A–351. The flanges subject to these orders are currently classifiable under subheadings 7307.21.1000 and 7307.21.5000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS).

    On December 10, 2001, the Department published the antidumping duty 
order on honey from Argentina. See Order, 66 FR at 63672. Thus, the 
antidumping duty order on honey from Argentina has a December 
anniversary month. On January 3, 2011, the Department received a timely 
filed request dated December 31, 2010, for a new shipper review from 
Villamora. In its request for a review, Villamora identified itself as 
an exporter of the subject merchandise. For the purpose of initiating 
this new shipper review, the Department determines that Villamora's 
submission was timely filed.
    Pursuant to the requirements set forth in section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2), Villamora certified that (1) it 
did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the 
period of investigation (POI) (see section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i)); and (2) since the initiation of the 
investigation, it has never been affiliated with any company that 
exported subject merchandise to the United States during the POI, 
including those companies not individually examined during the 
investigation (see section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A)). Additionally, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.214(b)(2)(iv), Villamora submitted documentation establishing the 
following: (1) The date on which it first shipped subject merchandise 
to the United States; (2) the volume of its first shipment; and (3) the 
date of its first sale to an unaffiliated purchaser for exportation to 
the United States. Villamora also stated it had no shipments to the

Initiation of Review

    Based on information on the record and in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.214(d), we find that the
