Currency Conversion We made currency conversions pursuant to 19 CFR 351.415 based on the rates certified by the Federal Reserve Bank. Preliminary Results of Review We preliminarily determine that the weighted-average dumping margin for MS Galati during the period November 1, 2003, through October 31, 2004, is 0.94 percent. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(b), the Department will disclose to parties calculations performed in connection with these preliminary results within five days of the date of publication of this notice. Any interested party may request a hearing within 30 days of publication of this notice. If requested, a hearing will be held at the main Department building. We will notify parties of the exact date, time, and place for any such hearing. Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to those raised in the respective case and rebuttal briefs. Case briefs from interested parties may be filed no later than 30 days after publication of this notice. Rebuttal briefs, limited to the issues raised in case briefs, may be submitted no later than five days after the deadline for filing case briefs. Parties who submit case or rebuttal briefs in this proceeding are requested to submit with each argument a statement of the issue and a brief summary of the argument with an electronic version included. The Department will publish a notice of final results of this administrative review, which will include the results of its analysis of issues raised in the case briefs, within 120 days from the date of publication of these preliminary results. Assessment Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department calculates an assessment rate for each importer of the subject merchandise. Upon issuance of the final results of this review, if any importerspecific assessment rates calculated in the final results are above de minimis (i.e., at or above 0.50 percent), we will issue appraisement instructions directly to CBP to assess antidumping duties on appropriate entries by applying the assessment rate to the entered value of the merchandise. To determine whether the duty-assessment rate covering the period is de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we have calculated an importer-specific assessment ad VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:29 Dec 07, 2005 Jkt 208001 valorem rate by aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to the sole importer of MS Galati’s subject merchandise and dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to that importer. Where the importer-specific ad valorem rate is greater than de minimis and because the respondent has reported reliable entered values, we will instruct CBP to apply the assessment rate to the entered value of the importer’s entries during the period of review. The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of the final results of this review. Cash-Deposit Requirements The following cash-deposit rates will be effective upon publication of the final results of this review for all shipments of certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat products from Romania entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after publication date, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) for subject merchandise produced or exported by MS Galati, the cash-deposit rate will be the rate established in the final results of this review; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not covered in this review, the cash-deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original antidumping duty investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cashdeposit rate will be the rate established in the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; (4) if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered in this or any previous administrative review or in the original less-than-fair-value investigation, the cash-deposit rate will be 17.84 percent, the ‘‘All Others’’ rate made effective on June 14, 2005. See Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products From Romania: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 34448 (June 14, 2005). These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until publication of the final results of the next administrative review. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during these review periods. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: November 30, 2005. Stephen J. Claeys, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

ACTION: Notice of allocation of 2006 worsted wool fabric tariff rate quota. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) has determined the allocation for Calendar Year 2006 of imports of certain worsted wool fabrics under tariff rate quotas established by Title V of the Trade and Development Act of 2000 (Pub. L. No. 106–200), as amended by the Trade Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 107–210) and the Miscellaneous Trade Act of 2004 (Pub. L. 108–249). The companies that are being provided an allocation are listed below. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sergio Botero, Office of Textiles and Apparel, U.S. Department of Commerce, (202) 482-4058. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: BACKGROUND: Title V of the Trade and Development Act of 2000 as amended by the Trade VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:29 Dec 07, 2005 Jkt 208001 Act of 2002 and the Miscellaneous Trade Act of 2004 creates two tariff rate quotas, providing for temporary reductions in the import duties on two categories of worsted wool fabrics suitable for use in making suits, suittype jackets, or trousers. For worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameters greater than 18.5 microns (Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) heading 9902.51.11), the reduction in duty is limited to 5,500,000 square meters in 2006. For worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameters of 18.5 microns or less (HTSUS heading 9902.51.15), the reduction is limited to 5,000,000 square meters in 2006. The Act requires the President to ensure that such fabrics are fairly allocated to persons (including firms, corporations, or other legal entities) who cut and sew men’s and boys’ worsted wool suits and suit-like jackets and trousers in the United States and who apply for an allocation based on the amount of such suits cut and sewn during the prior calendar year. Presidential Proclamation 7383, of December 1, 2000, authorized the Secretary of Commerce to allocate the quantity of worsted wool fabric imports under the tariff rate quotas. The Miscellaneous Trade Act of 2004 also authorized Commerce to allocate a new HTS category, HTS 9902.51.16. This HTS refers to worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameter of 18.5 microns or less. The amendment further provides that HTS 9902.51.16 is for the benefit of persons (including firms, corporations, or other legal entities) who weave worsted wool fabric in the United States. For HTS 9902.51.16, the reduction in duty is limited to 2,000,000 square meters in 2006. On January 22, 2001 the Department published interim regulations establishing procedures for applying for, and determining, such allocations (66 FR6459) and (15 CFR 335). These interim regulations were adopted, without change, as a final rule published on October 24, 2005 (70 FR 61363). On September 2, 2005, the Department published notices in the Federal Register (70 FR 52365) and (70 FR 52366) soliciting applications for an allocation of the 2006 tariff rate quotas with a closing date of October 3, 2005. The Department received timely applications for the HTS 9902.51.11 tariff rate quota from 12 firms. The Department received timely applications for the HTS 9902.51.15 tariff rate quota from 15 firms. The Department received timely applications for the HTS 9902.51.16 tariff rate quota from 1 firm. All applicants were determined eligible for an allocation. Most applicants PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 72989 submitted data on a business confidential basis. As allocations to firms were determined on the basis of this data, the Department considers individual firm allocations to be business confidential.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 8, 2005, the Department published the preliminary results 
of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on stainless 
steel sheet and strip in coils (SSSS) from France for the period of 
July 1, 2003, through June 30, 2004 (see Preliminary Results of

in Coils from France, 70 FR 45668 (August 8, 2005) (Preliminary 
Results)). The current deadline for the final results of this review is 
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 of Commerce (the Department) to issue the 
final results in an administrative review within 120 days of the date 
on which the preliminary results were published. However, if it is not

[[Page 72989]]

allows the Department to extend the time limit for the final results to 
180 days from the date of publication of the preliminary results.
    Due to the complex nature of certain issues raised in the parties' 
comments to the Preliminary Results related to the calculation of 
specific adjustments (such as warranty expenses) and assessment rates, 
additional time is required to complete our analysis. Therefore, the 
Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the review

section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the 
Department's regulations, the Department is extending the time limit 
for the completion of the final results of the review until no later
