At the Department's direction, Uday amended its request for a new shipper review on September 20, 2001. This order has an August semi-annual anniversary month.
Initiation of Review
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii), Uday certified in its July 25, 2001 request that it is not now and never has been affiliated with any exporter or producer who exported the subject merchandise to the United States during the period of investigation (“POI”) (July 1, 1993 through December 31, 1993). In its September 20, 2001 filing, Uday certified, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i), that it did not export the subject merchandise to the United States during the POI. On September 20, 2001, Uday also submitted documentation establishing: (i) The date on which its stainless steel bar was first shipped for export to the United States; (ii) the volume of that shipment; and (iii) the date of the first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States.
In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214, we are initiating a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel bar from India. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(h)(i), we intend to issue the preliminary results of this review not later than 180 days after the date on which the review is initiated. All provisions of 19 CFR 351.214 will apply to Uday throughout the duration of this new shipper review. The standard period of review (“POR”) in a new shipper review based on the semiannual anniversary month is the six month period immediately preceding the semiannual anniversary month, i.e. for the instant review, February 1 through July 31, 2001.
