SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 23, 2001, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published the antidumping duty orders on butt-weld pipe fittings from 
Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines.\1\ On November 1, 2011, the 
Department published a notice of initiation of its second five-year 
(sunset) reviews of the antidumping duty orders on butt-weld pipe 
fittings from Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines.\2\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As a result of these sunset reviews, the Department determined that 
revocation of the antidumping duty orders on butt-weld pipe fittings 
from Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines would likely lead to 
continuation or recurrence of dumping and, therefore, notified the U.S. 
International Trade Commission (Commission) of the magnitude of the 
margins likely to prevail should these orders be revoked.\3\

    On July 5, 2012, the Commission published its determination in the 
Federal Register, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, 
as amended (the Act), that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on 
butt-weld pipe fittings from Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines would 
likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury to an 
industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.\4\

Scope of the Orders

    For purposes of the orders, the product covered is certain

designated under specification ASTM A403/A403M, the standard 
specification for Wrought Austenitic Stainless Steel Piping Fittings, 
or its foreign equivalents (e.g., DIN or JIS specifications). This 
specification covers two general classes of fittings, WP and CR, of 
wrought austenitic stainless steel fittings of seamless and welded 
construction covered by the latest revision of ANSI B16.9, ANSI B16.11, 
and ANSI B16.28. Butt-weld fittings manufactured to specification ASTM 
A774, or its foreign equivalents, are also covered by the orders.
    The orders do not apply to cast fittings. Cast austenitic stainless 
steel pipe fittings are covered by specifications A351/A351M, A743/
743M, and A744/A744M.
    The butt-weld fittings subject to the orders are currently 
classifiable under subheading 7307.23.0000 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 scope of the orders is dispositive.

Continuation of the Orders

    As a result of the determinations by the Department and the 
Commission that revocation of the antidumping duty orders would likely 
lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an 
industry in the United States, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the 
Act, the Department hereby orders the continuation of the antidumping 
duty orders on butt-weld pipe fittings from Italy, Malaysia, and the 
Philippines.
    U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect 
antidumping duty cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of 
entry for all imports of subject merchandise. The effective date of the 
continuation of these orders will be the date of publication in the 
Federal Register of this notice of continuation. Pursuant to section 
751(c)(2) of the Act, the Department intends to initiate the next 
sunset reviews of these orders not later than 30 days prior to the 
fifth anniversary of the effective date of continuation.
    These sunset reviews and this notice are in accordance with section 
751(c) of the Act and published pursuant to section 777(i)(1) of the
