SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On September 22, 2004, the Department published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products from Korea, covering the period August 1, 2003, to July 31, 2004, (the ‘‘eleventh review’’) (69 FR 56745). On April 7, 2005, the Department fully extended the preliminary results of the eleventh administrative review by 120 days (70 FR 17648). On September 7, 2005, the Department published the preliminary results of the eleventh administrative review (70 FR 53153). The final results of this review are currently due no later than January 5, 2006. Extension of Time Limits Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to issue (1) the preliminary results of a review within 245 days after the last day of the month in which occurs the anniversary of the date of publication of an order or finding for which a review is requested, VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:56 Dec 02, 2005 Jkt 208001 and (2) the final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days and to extend the time limit for the final result to a maximum of 180 days. See also 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this review within the original time limit of complex model-match issues that cuts across all of the antidumping duty orders on the subject merchandise. Therefore, the Department is extending the deadline for the final results of the above referenced review by 32 days until February 6, 2006.This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).

The Department is extending the time limit for the final results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on persulfates from the PRC. The final results of this review are currently due no later than December 8, 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 issue 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 (or 300 days if the Department does not extend the time limit for the preliminary results) from the date of publication of the preliminary results. Completion of the final results within the 120-day period is not practicable due to several complex issues regarding the selection of the appropriate surrogate financial statements to use in the calculation of normal value for the final results. The parties have submitted extensive arguments regarding the use of financial data from producers of comparable products to derive surrogate financial ratios. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for issuing the final results of this review by 60 days until February 6, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On June 1, 2005, the Department initiated and the Commission instituted a sunset review of the antidumping duty order on sparklers from China pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 72425 Initiation of Five–Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Reviews, 70 FR 31537 (June 1, 2005). As a result of its review, the Department found that revocation of the antidumping duty order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and notified the Commission of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail were the order to be revoked. See Sparklers from the People’s Republic of China; Notice of Final Results of Expedited Sunset Review of Antidumping Duty Order, 70 FR 58382 (October 6, 2005). On November 15, 2005, the Commission determined, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the antidumping duty order on sparklers from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Sparklers from China, 70 FR 70636 (November 22, 2005), USITC Publication 3814 (November 2005) (Investigation No. 731–TA–464 (Second Review)). Scope of the Order The products subject to this order are fireworks each comprising a cut–tolength wire, one end of which is coated with a chemical mix that emits bright sparks while burning. Sparklers are currently classified under subheadings 3604.10.10.00, 3604.10.90.10, and 3604.10.90.50 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). Sparklers were formerly classified under HTSUS subcategory 3604.10.00. The Department has reviewed the current categories and has determined that sparklers are currently classified in the above subcategories. Although HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under the order is dispositive. Determination As a result of the determinations by the Department and the Commission that revocation of this antidumping duty order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to sections 751(d)(2)(A) and (B) of the Act, the Department hereby orders the continuation of the antidumping duty order on sparklers from China. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect antidumping duty deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise. The effective date of the continuation for this order is the date of publication in the Federal Register of E:\FR\FM\05DEN1.SGM 05DEN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 8, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on saccharin from the People's Republic of China 
(``PRC'') covering the period December 27, 2002, through June 30, 2004. 
See Saccharin from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results 
and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 
45657 (August 8, 2005). The final results of the antidumping duty 
administrative review of saccharin from the PRC are currently due no 
later than December 6, 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 issue 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 the time specified, the administering 
authority may extend the 120-day period to 180 days. Completion of the 
final results within the 120-day period is not practicable due to a 
potential issue arising in a concurrent scope proceeding of the 
antidumping duty order on saccharin from the PRC regarding acid 
saccharin being shipped from the PRC to a third country where it is 
processed into sodium saccharin and then shipped to the United States.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the 
Department is fully extending the time period for issuing the final 
results. Because the extended date, February 4, 2006, falls on a 
Saturday, we will issue the final results no later than February 6, 
2006.
    On September 2, 2005, the Department extended the deadline of 
September 7, 2005, until further notice for interested parties to 
submit case briefs and/or written comments on the preliminary results 
of review. Interested parties may submit case briefs and/or written 
comments no later than December 13, 2005. Rebuttal briefs and rebuttals 
to written comments, limited to issues raised in such briefs or 
comments, may be filed no later than December 20, 2005. The Department 
will also notify parties regarding the schedule for a public hearing to 
be held at a future date pursuant to a request submitted by Shanghai 
Fortune Chemical Co., Ltd. The public hearing will be held at the U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC 20230.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) 
and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: November 29, 2005.
