SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: wwhite on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Background On September 8, 2005, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of antidumping duty new shipper reviews of wooden bedroom furniture from the People’s Republic of China for the period June 24, 2004, through June 30, 2005. See Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China; Initiation of New Shipper Reviews, 70 FR 53344 (September 8, 2005). The preliminary results of the new shipper reviews are currently due no later than February 26, 2006. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to issue preliminary results within 180 days after the date on which the new shipper reviews were initiated. However, if the Department concludes that the case is extraordinarily complicated, section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act allows the Department to extend the 180-day period to a maximum of 300 days. The Department finds that the complicated nature of this review necessitates an extension of time beyond the 180-day period to complete the preliminary results. There are four distinct new shipper reviews underway for the following entities: Shenyang Kunyu Wood Industry Co., Ltd. (‘‘Kunyu’’); Dongguan Landmark Furniture Products Ltd.; Meikangchi (Nantong) Furniture Company Ltd. (‘‘Meikangchi’’); and WBE Industries (Hui–Yang) Co., Ltd. Two of the respondents, Kunyu and Meikangchi, are participating pro se, and may require additional assistance pursuant to section 782(c)(2) of the Act. Further, there are significant and complicated issues surrounding the Department’s normal value calculation for wooden bedroom furniture, particularly with respect to the valuation of the many factors of production associated with wooden bedroom furniture production. Accordingly, the Department requires additional time to properly analyze the respondents’ questionnaire responses, issue multiple supplemental questionnaires, and conduct any appropriate verifications in these new shipper reviews. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:06 Feb 27, 2006 Jkt 208001 of the Act, the Department is extending the time limit for the preliminary results to these reviews by 120 days, until no later than June 26, 2006. Dated: February 21, 2006. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration,

Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street & Constitution

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Extension of Time Limits:

    On November 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated sunset reviews of the countervailing duty 
(``CVD'') order on certain corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat 
products (``CORE'') from France, pursuant to section 751(c) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). See Initiation of Five-
Year (Sunset) Reviews, 70 FR 65884 (November 1, 2005). Based on 
adequate responses from the domestic and respondent interested parties, 
the Department is conducting a full sunset review to determine whether 
revocation of the CVD order on CORE from France would lead to the 
continuation or recurrence of a countervailable subsidy. See section 19 
CFR 351.218(e)(2)(i) of the Act.
    In accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B) of the Act, the Department 
may extend the period of time for making its determination in a sunset 
review by not more than 90 days, if it determines that the review is 
extraordinarily complicated. As set forth in section 751(c)(5)(C)(v) of 
the Act, the Department may treat a sunset review as extraordinarily 
complicated if it is a review of a transition order. The sunset review 
subject to this notice is a review of a transition order. Therefore, 
the Department has determined, pursuant to section 751(c)(5)(C)(v) of 
the Act, that the sunset review of the CVD order on CORE from France is 
extraordinarily complicated and requires additional time for the 
Department to complete its analysis. Accordingly, the Department will 
extend the deadline in this proceeding, and, as a result, intends to 
issue the preliminary results of the sunset review of the CVD order on 
CORE from France on or about May 23, 2006, and the final results of 
that review on September 27, 2006. These dates are 90 days from the 
original scheduled dates of the preliminary and final results of this 
sunset review.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(c)(5)(B) and (C) of the Act.

    Dated: February 21, 2006.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
