Background On July 24, 1996, the Department published in the Federal Register the antidumping duty order on pasta from Italy, which included Delverde S.p.A. and its affiliate Tamma (collectively, Delverde).1 Pursuant to a decision by the Court of International Trade, on remand, the Department determined that Delverde had a de minimis dumping margin and should be excluded from the order.2 In 2014, the Department conducted a changed circumstances review of Delverde S.p.A and found that Delverde Industrie Alimentari S.p.A. (Delverde) was not a successor-in-interest to Delverde S.p.A. based on aspects of the bankruptcy of Delverde S.p.A., changes in management, changes in supplier relationships, and changes in 1 See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order and Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Pasta From Italy, 61 FR 38547 (July 24, 1996) (AD Order). 2 See Notice of Amendment of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value Pursuant to Court Decision and Revocation in Part: Certain Pasta from Italy, 66 FR 65889 (December 21, 2001).
