SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On May 9, 2005, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published the preliminary results of the administrative review and the new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on brake rotors from the People’s Republic of China. See Brake Rotors from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results and Partial Rescission of Seventh Administrative Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Eleventh New Shipper Review, 70 FR 24382 (May 9, 2005) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’).1 The results of this administrative and new shipper review are currently due no later than September 6, 2005. Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department shall make a final determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete the 1 Pursuant to Section 351.214(j)(3) of its regulations, the Department is conducting these reviews concurrently. VerDate jul<14>2003 15:42 Jun 15, 2005 Jkt 205001 review within the foregoing time, the administering authority may extend that 120-day period to 180 days. In this case, the Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the final results in the administrative review and new shipper review of brake rotors from the PRC within the current time frame due to the large number of companies participating in this review. There are fourteen companies participating in the administrative review, and one company participating in the new shipper review. Therefore, in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time for completion of the final results of this review until no later than November 7, 2005, which is the next business day after 180 days from the date of the publication of the Preliminary Results. This notice is issued and published in accordance with Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Dated: June 9, 2005. Barbara E. Tillman, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

Research will take place in waters off the main Hawaiian Islands (primary study area) and along the rim of the North Pacific from California northward to Southeast Alaska and then westward through the Gulf of Alaska, Aleutian Islands, and regions of the upper western Pacific. Research will also take place in Japanese waters off the Mariana, Bonin (Ogasawara), and Ryukyuan islands.
