DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Forged Stainless Steel Flanges From India and Taiwan: Final Results of Sunset Reviews and Revocation of Antidumping Duty Orders Background At the request of interested parties, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain polyester staple fiber from Taiwan for the period May 1, 2009, through April 30, 2010. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 75 FR 37759 (June 30, 2010). The preliminary results are currently due no later than January 31, 2011. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary determination is published in the Federal Register. If it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month. We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review by the current deadline of January 31, 2011, because we require additional time to obtain additional information concerning the respondent’s U.S. and home-market sales. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this review by 74 days to April 15, 2011.

In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(d), we are initiating an antidumping duty new shipper review of Villamora S.A. (Villamora). The period of review (POR) of this new shipper review is December 1, 2009, through November 30, 2010. DATES: Effective Date: January 31, 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background 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 United States during the period subsequent to its first shipment. 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 request submitted by Villamora meets the statutory and regulatory requirements for initiation of a new shipper review.

    The products covered by these orders 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 connections; 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 above-described 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

    Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(3), if no domestic
