SUMMARY: On August 20, 2021, the U.S. Court of International Trade (CIT) issued its final judgment in Echjay Forgings Private Limited v. United States, Consol. Court no. 18–00230, sustaining the Department of Commerce (Commerce)’s remand redetermination pertaining to the antidumping duty (AD) investigation of stainless steel flanges (flanges) from India covering the period of investigation, July 1, 2016, through June 30, 2017. Commerce is notifying the public that the CIT’s final judgment is not in harmony with Commerce’s final determination in that investigation, and that Commerce is amending the final determination and the resulting AD order with respect to the dumping margin assigned to Echjay Forgings Private Limited (Echjay) and the ‘‘all other’’ companies. DATES: Applicable August 30, 2021.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: 2 See Memorandum, ‘‘Urea Ammonium Nitrate Solutions from the Russian Federation: Extension of Time to File Comments on Status,’’ dated September 3, 2021. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 50325 Background On August 16, 2018, Commerce published its Final Determination in the AD investigation of flanges from India.1 Commerce found that Echjay, along with Echjay Industries Private Limited (EIPL), Echjay Forgings Industry Private Limited (EFIPL), and Spire Industries Private Limited (Spire), constituted a single entity. Having collapsed the companies, Commerce requested that Echjay provide information on behalf of the constituent companies of the collapsed entity. Echjay did not provide such information. Therefore, Commerce treated Echjay as noncooperative and assigned Echjay a margin based on facts available, with adverse inferences (AFA). Specifically, Commerce assigned Echjay a dumping margin of 145.25 percent and a cash deposit rate of 140.39 percent, accounting for an export subsidy offset based on the parallel countervailing duty (CVD) investigation.2 Commerce subsequently published the AD order on flanges from India.3 Echjay appealed Commerce’s Final Determination. On October 8, 2020, the CIT remanded the Final Determination to Commerce, concluding that Commerce’s finding of affiliation and subsequent decision to collapse Echjay with EIPL, EFIPL and Spire were unsupported by substantial evidence.4 In its remand redetermination, issued in February 2021, Commerce revisited its prior collapsing determination and concluded that it was not appropriate to treat Echjay, EIPL, EFIPL, and Spire as a single entity. As a result, Commerce also revisited its concomitant application of AFA in determining Echjay’s weighted-average dumping margin and calculated a revised dumping margin for the company.5 Finally, in light of Echjay’s revised margin, and the method used in the investigation for determining the allothers rate, we calculated a revised allothers rate of 7.00 percent.
