INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION

[Investigation Nos. 701-TA-586 and 731-TA-1384 (Final)]


Stainless Steel Flanges From India

Determinations

    On the basis of the record \1\ developed in the subject 
investigations, the United States International Trade Commission 
(``Commission'') determines, pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930 (``the 
Act''), that an industry in the United States is materially injured by 
reason of imports of stainless steel flanges from India that have been 
found by the U.S. Department of Commerce (``Commerce'') to be sold in 
the United States at less than fair value (``LTFV''), and to be 
subsidized by the government of India.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The record is defined in sec. 207.2(f) of the Commission's 
Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 207.2(f)).
    \2\ The Commission also finds that imports subject to Commerce's 
affirmative critical circumstances determinations are not likely to 
undermine seriously the remedial effect of the antidumping and 
countervailing duty orders on stainless steel flanges from India.

scheduling of the final phase of the Commission's investigations and of 
a public hearing to be held in connection therewith was given by

dumped imports of stainless steel flanges from China on July 25, 2018 
(83 FR 36622, July 30, 2018). Following notification of final 
determinations by Commerce that imports of stainless steel flanges from 
India were being sold at LTFV within the meaning of section 735(a) of

India within the meaning of section 705(a) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 
1671d(a)),\5\ notice of the supplemental scheduling of the final phase 
of the Commission's antidumping and countervailing duty investigations
