General information concerning the Commission may also be obtained by accessing its internet server (https:// SUMMARY: 1 For purposes of these investigations, the Department of Commerce has defined the subject merchandise as finished carbon steel flanges. Finished carbon steel flanges differ from unfinished carbon steel flanges (also known as carbon steel flange forgings) in that they have undergone further processing after forging, including, but not limited to, beveling, bore threading, center or step boring, face machining, taper boring, machining ends or surfaces, drilling bolt holes, and/or deburring or shot blasting. Any one of these post-forging processes suffices to render the forging into a finished carbon steel flange for purposes of this investigation. However, mere heat treatment of a carbon steel flange forging (without any other further processing after forging) does not render the forging into a finished carbon steel flange for purposes of this investigation. For a full description of the scope of these investigations, see 82 FR 9711, 9719, and 9723, February 8, 2017. PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 www.usitc.gov).

Drake, M.D. Decision and Order On December 5, 2016, the Assistant Administrator, Diversion Control Division, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), issued an Order to Show Cause to Lee B. Drake, M.D. (Registrant), of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. The Show Cause Order proposed the revocation of Registrant’s DEA Certificate of Registration, on the ground that he does not hold authority to PO 00000 Frm 00058 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11057 dispense controlled substances in Mississippi, the State in which he is registered with the Agency. Show Cause Order, at 1 (citing 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(3)). As to the Agency’s jurisdiction, the Show Cause Order alleged that Registrant is registered with DEA as a practitioner with authority to dispense controlled substances in schedules II through V under Registration No. BD3577965, at the registered address of 6524 U.S. Highway 98, Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Id. The Order also alleged that Registrant’s registration does not expire until June 30, 2017. Id. The Show Cause Order then alleged that on July 8, 2016, Registrant surrendered his authority ‘‘to prescribe and administer controlled substances in . . . Mississippi’’ and that he is ‘‘without authority to [dispense] controlled substances in’’ the State. Id. The Order asserted that as a consequence of the loss of his state authority, ‘‘DEA must revoke’’ his registration. Id. (citing 21 U.S.C. 802(21), 823(f) and 824(a)(3)). The Show Cause Order notified Registrant of his right to request a hearing on the allegations, or to submit a written statement in lieu of a hearing, the procedure for electing either option, and the consequence for failing to do either. Id. at 2 (citing 21 CFR 1301.43). The Order also notified Registrant of his right to submit a corrective action plan. Id. at 2–3 (citing 21 U.S.C. 824(c)(2)(C)). On December 7, 2016, a Diversion Investigator (DI) with the DEA Jackson, Mississippi District Office accomplished service by hand-delivery of the Show Cause Order to Registrant. See GX 2, at 2 (DI’s Declaration). On January 10, 2017, the Government forwarded to my Office its Request for Final Agency Action (cited as RFFA) along with an evidentiary record. In its Request, the Government represents that since the date of service of the Show Cause Order, it ‘‘has not received a request for hearing or any other reply from’’ Registrant. RFFA, at 1–2. Based on the Government’s representation and the DI’s declaration, I find that more than 30 days have passed since the date of service of the Show Cause Order and that neither Registrant, nor anyone purporting to represent him, has requested a hearing or submitted a written statement while waiving his right to a hearing. I therefore find that Registrant has waived his right to a hearing or to submit a written statement in lieu of hearing, and issue this Decision and Order based on relevant evidence contained in the record submitted by the Government. 21 CFR 1301.43(d) & (e). I make the following findings of fact. E:\FR\FM\17FEN1.SGM 17FEN1

SUMMARY: The Commission hereby gives notice of the scheduling of the 
final phase of antidumping and countervailing duty investigation Nos. 
701-TA-563 and 731-TA-1331-1333 (Final) pursuant to the Tariff Act of 
1930 (``the Act'') to determine whether an industry in the United 
States is materially injured or threatened with material injury, or the 
establishment of an industry in the United States is materially 
retarded, by reason of imports of finished carbon steel flanges from 
India, Italy, and Spain, provided for in subheading 7307.91 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, preliminarily 
determined by the Department of Commerce to be subsidized by the 
government of India and sold at less-than-fair-value.\1\

    \1\ For purposes of these investigations, the Department of 
Commerce has defined the subject merchandise as finished carbon 
steel flanges. Finished carbon steel flanges differ from unfinished 
carbon steel flanges (also known as carbon steel flange forgings) in 
that they have undergone further processing after forging, 
including, but not limited to, beveling, bore threading, center or 
step boring, face machining, taper boring, machining ends or 
surfaces, drilling bolt holes, and/or deburring or shot blasting. 
Any one of these post-forging processes suffices to render the 
forging into a finished carbon steel flange for purposes of this 
investigation. However, mere heat treatment of a carbon steel flange 
forging (without any other further processing after forging) does 
not render the forging into a finished carbon steel flange for
