SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background This administrative review covers 37 producers/exporters of the subject merchandise. Commerce selected two companies, the Norma Group 1 and R.N. 1 The Norma Group consists of the following companies: Norma (India) Limited (Norma), USK Exports Private Limited, Uma Shanker Khandelwal PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 & Co., and Bansidhar Chiranjilal. The agency collapsed these companies for purposes of respondent selection because they were collapsed in a prior segment of this proceeding (i.e., investigation). See Finished Carbon Steel Flanges from India: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of Final Determination, 82 FR 9719 (February 8, 2017), and accompanying Preliminary Determination Memorandum at 4 (collectively, Preliminary Determination); unchanged in Finished Carbon Steel Flanges from India: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 82 FR 29483 (June 29, 2017) (Final Determination). Norma Group presented evidence that the factual basis on which Commerce made its prior determination has not changed. See Norma Group’s March 1, 2019 Supplemental Questionnaire Response (Norma Group March 1, 2019 SQR) at 12–20. Accordingly, we continue to collapse and treat these companies as a single entity for purposes of this proceeding. 2 See Memorandum, ‘‘Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Finished Carbon Steel Flanges from India: Respondent Selection,’’ dated November 9, 2018. 3 See Finished Carbon Steel Flanges from India: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2017–2018, 84 FR 57848 (October 29, 2019), and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum (collectively, the Preliminary Results). 4 See Norma Group’s Case Brief, ‘‘Finished Carbon Steel Flanges from India: Norma’s Comments on the Preliminary Results,’’ dated December 2, 2019. 5 See Petitioners’ Case Briefs, ‘‘Finished Carbon Steel Flanges from India: Case Brief—Weldbend Corporation and Boltex Manufacturing Co., L.P.,’’ dated December 2, 2019. 6 See Norma Group’s Rebuttal Brief, ‘‘Finished Carbon Steel Flanges from India: Norma’s Rebuttal Comments,’’ dated December 9, 2019. 7 See Commerce Letter, ‘‘Finished Carbon Steel Flanges from India: Rejection of Rebuttal Brief,’’ dated February 7, 2020. 8 See Gupta Rebuttal Brief, ‘‘Finished Carbon Steel Flanges from India: Redacted Rebuttal Brief of R.N.
