The current request would add a foreignstatus material to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), additional FTZ authority would be limited to the specific foreign-status material described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt voestalpine from customs duty payments on the foreign-status lump iron ore used in export production. On its domestic sales, for foreign-status lump iron ore (duty free), voestalpine would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to HBI and certain by-products: Iron sludge, recycled iron briquettes, direct reduction remet, iron fines, and HBI fines (for which voestalpine’s request for authority is currently pending) (duty free). voestalpine would be able to avoid duty on foreign-status components which become scrap/waste. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production equipment. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is October 23, 2017. A copy of the notification will be available for public inspection at the Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Room 21013, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230–0002, and in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the Board’s Web site, which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz.

The petitioners are domestic producers of stainless steel flanges.2 On August 18 and 21, 2017, the Department requested supplemental information pertaining to certain areas of the Petitions.3 The petitioners filed responses to these requests on August 22, 2017.4 The petitioners filed revised scope language on August 30, 2017.5 In accordance with section 732(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the petitioners allege that imports of stainless steel flanges from India and the PRC are likely to be sold in the United States at less than fair value within the meaning of section 731 of the Act, and that such imports are materially injuring, or threatening material injury to, the domestic industry producing stainless steel flanges in the United States. Also, consistent with section 732(b)(1) of the Act, the Petitions are accompanied by information reasonably available to the petitioners supporting their allegations. The Department finds that the petitioners filed these Petitions on 1 See Letter to the Secretary of Commerce re: ‘‘Stainless Steel Flanges from the People’s Republic of China and India: Petitions for the Imposition of Antidumping and Countervailing Duties’’ (August 16, 2017) (the Petitions). 2 See Volume I of the Petitions, at 2. 3 See Letters from the Department, to the petitioners, dated August 18, 2017. 4 See Letter from the petitioners, ‘‘Re: Stainless Steel Flanges from the People’s Republic of China and India: Supplement to the Petitions for the Imposition of Antidumping and Countervailing Duties—Response to the Department’s Supplemental Questions, Volume I Relating to Common Issues and Injury;’’ (August 22, 2017) (General Issues Supplement); see also Stainless Steel Flanges from the People’s Republic of China and India: Supplement to the Petitions for the Imposition of Antidumping and Countervailing Duties—Response to the Department’s Supplemental Questions, Volume IV Relating to India (India AD Supplemental Response); and Stainless Steel Flanges from the People’s Republic of China and India: Supplement to the Petitions for the Imposition of Antidumping and Countervailing Duties—Response to the Department’s Supplemental Questions, Volume II Relating to China (PRC AD Supplemental Response).

Because the PRC is a nonmarket economy (NME) country, the POI for this investigation is January 1, 2017, through June 30, 2017.

For a full description of the scope of these investigations, see the ‘‘Scope of the Investigations,’’ in the Appendix to this notice. Comments on Scope of the Investigations During our review of the Petitions, the Department issued questions to, and received responses from, the petitioners pertaining to the proposed scope to ensure that the scope language in the Petitions would be an accurate reflection of the products for which the domestic industry is seeking relief.7 As discussed in the preamble to the Department’s regulations, we are setting aside a period for interested parties to raise issues regarding product coverage (scope).8 The Department will consider all comments received from interested parties and, if necessary, will consult with interested parties prior to the issuance of the preliminary determinations. If scope comments include factual information,9 all such factual information should be limited to public information. To facilitate preparation of its questionnaires, the Department requests all interested parties to submit such comments by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time (ET) on Monday, September 25, 2017, which is 20 calendar days from the signature date of this notice.
