Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 168 / Wednesday, August 31, 2005 / Notices APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO material or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanctions. We are issuing and publishing this determination and notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i) of the Act. Department has determined that the new shipper sale made by Dafeng Shunli was not bona fide because of, (1) the inconsistencies in the import documentation; (2) the circumstances surrounding payment for the single POR sale; (3) the aberrantly low quantity of the single sale, in comparison with other shipments from China; (4) the inconsistencies and irregularities regarding the information provided regarding Dafeng Shunli’s importer as compared to information obtained by the Department; (5) information gaps regarding the actual capital investors in Dafeng Shunli; and (6) an unreported relationship between Dafeng Shunli and Yancheng Yaou Seafood Co., Ltd. As discussed in detail in the Department’s SB Rescission Memo, the Department has determined that the new shipper sale made by Shanghai Blessing was not bona fide because, (1) the circumstances obscuring the identity of the producer of the subject merchandise; (2) the circumstances surrounding Shanghai Blessing’s knowledge of the ultimate customer; (3) the atypical quantity of the single sale in comparison with other shipments during the POR and Shanghai Blessing’s post–POR shipments; (4) the decreases in the entered value and sales price for post– POR shipments; (5) the inconsistencies and irregularities regarding the affiliations of the majority owner of Shanghai Blessing’s producer; and (6) the incomplete and inaccurate responses in the information provided to the Department. Since the Department is rescinding the new shipper reviews, we are not making a determination as to whether Dafeng Shunli and Shanghai Blessing qualify for separate rates. Therefore, Shanghai Blessing and Dafeng Shunli will remain part of the PRC–wide entity. AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce.

Review

AGENCY: AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, Department of Commerce.

EFFECTIVE DATE: August 31, 2005.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Constance Handley or Shane Subler, at 
(202) 482-0631 or (202) 482-0189, respectively; AD/CVD Operations,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On June 30, 2004, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain softwood lumber products from Canada, 
covering the period May 1, 2003, through April 30, 2004. See Notice of 
Initiation of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 69 FR 39409 (June 
30, 2004). The review covers the sales of over four hundred producers/
exporters of subject merchandise to the United States. Eight of these 
producers/exporters are being individually examined. On June 7, 2005, 
the Department published the preliminary results of the antidumping 
duty administrative review. See Notice of Preliminary Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Partial Rescission: Certain 
Softwood Lumber Products from Canada, 70 FR 33063 (June 7, 2005).

Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to complete the final results of an 
administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the 
preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to 
complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the final 
results to 180 days from the date of publication of the preliminary 
results.
    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final 
results of this review within the original time limit. The Department 
must address a number of significant and complex issues prior to the 
issuance of the final results. For example, to address thoroughly 
comments by interested parties in their case briefs, the Department 
must analyze the overall cost of production calculation methodology 
employed for the preliminary results of the review. Therefore, the 
Department is extending the time limit for completion of the final 
results of this administrative review until no later than December 4, 
2005, which is 180 days from the date of publication of the preliminary 
results. However, December 4 falls on Sunday, and it is the 
Department's long-standing practice to issue a determination the next 
business day when the statutory deadline falls on a weekend, federal 
holiday, or any other day when the Department is closed. See Notice of 
Clarification: Application of ``Next Business Day'' Rule for 
Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 
1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). Accordingly, the deadline 
for completion of the final results is December 5, 2005.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

    Dated: August 25, 2005.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
