Parties who submit arguments are requested to submit with each argument: (1) A statement of the issue, (2) a brief summary of the argument and (3) a table of authorities. Further, we request that parties submitting written comments provide the Department with a diskette containing an electronic copy of the public version of such comments. Unless the deadline for issuing the final results of review is extended, the Department will issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of its analysis of issues raised in the written comments, within 120 days of publication of the preliminary results in the Federal Register. erjones on PROD1PC68 with NOTICES Assessment Rates Upon completion of this administrative review, the Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. In accordance with 19 CFR § 351.212(b)(1), we calculated an importer–specific assessment rate for Essar’s subject merchandise. If the importer–specific assessment rate is above de minimis, we will instruct CBP to assess the importer–specific rate uniformly on all entries made during the POR. The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to the CBP within 15 days of publication of the final results of review. If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of review, we will direct CBP to assess the resulting assessment rate against the actual entered customs values for the subject merchandise on the importer entries during the review period. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Essar will be the rate established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is less than 0.5 percent, and therefore de minimis, the cash deposit will be zero; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed companies not listed above, 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 less than fair value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:02 Jan 11, 2006 Jkt 208001 recent period for the manufacturer of the subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be the ‘‘all others’’ rate of 38.72 percent, which is the ‘‘all others’’ rate established in the LTFV investigation. See Amended Final Determination. These cash deposit rates, 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)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: December 27, 2006. Stephen J. Claeys, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.

See Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 37749. The preliminary results are currently due no later than January 31, 2006. The review covers over four hundred producers/exporters of subject merchandise to the United States, of which eight are being individually examined. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary 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 complete the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order/ finding for which a review is requested. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, 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 after the last day of the anniversary month of an order/finding for which a review is requested. We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the original time limit due to a number of complex issues which must be addressed prior to the issuance of those results. For the first time in this proceeding, the Department employed a sampling methodology in selecting respondents. In order to obtain necessary information and to afford parties opportunities to comment on the Department’s selection methodology, the Department did not conduct its respondent selection sampling procedure until November 23, 2005. See section 777A(b) of the Act (where the Department determines to limit the selection of respondents by sampling, the Department ‘‘shall, to the greatest extent possible, consult with the exporters and producers regarding the method used to select exporters, producers or types of products’’). Consequently, the Department requires additional time to analyze the parties’ questionnaire responses, including the complex corporate structures and affiliations of the eight respondents in this review, issue any necessary supplemental questionnaires and conduct verifications.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On June 30, 2005, 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, 2004, through April 30, 2005. See Notice of 
Initiation of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 37749. The 
preliminary results are currently due no later than January 31, 2006. 
The review covers over four hundred producers/exporters of subject 
merchandise to the United States, of which eight are being individually 
examined.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary 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 complete 
the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days 
after the last day of the anniversary month of an order/finding for 
which a review is requested. However, if it is not practicable to 
complete the review within these time periods, 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 after the last day of the 
anniversary month of an order/finding for which a review is requested.
    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary 
results of this review within the original time limit due to a number 
of complex issues which must be addressed prior to the issuance of 
those results. For the first time in this proceeding, the Department 
employed a sampling methodology in selecting respondents. In order to 
obtain necessary information and to afford parties opportunities to 
comment on the Department's selection methodology, the Department did 
not conduct its respondent selection sampling procedure until November 
23, 2005. See section 777A(b) of the Act (where the Department 
determines to limit the selection of respondents by sampling, the 
Department ``shall, to the greatest extent possible, consult with the 
exporters and producers regarding the method used to select exporters, 
producers or types of products''). Consequently, the Department 
requires additional time to analyze the parties' questionnaire 
responses, including the complex corporate structures and affiliations 
of the eight respondents in this review, issue any necessary 
supplemental questionnaires and conduct verifications.
    Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for 
completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review 
until no later than

[[Page 2024]]

May 31, 2006. We intend to issue the final results no later than 120 
days after publication of the preliminary results notice.
    This notice of extension of the time limit is published in 
accordance with 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

    Dated: January 5, 2006.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
