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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Of the 400,000 residential fires reported in 2001, approximately 30% involved cooking equipment in the kitchen, resulting in approximately 370 fatalities and 4,300 injuries. Sixty-eight percent PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of these cooking fires involved the stovetop. To address this life-safety issue on a timely basis, retrofit fire suppression systems must be considered as part of the solution. A number of range top fire suppression systems have been developed, however, market acceptance has been limited. Broad acceptance of effective fire suppression systems will require the development and industry acceptance of a standard test method. Existing standard suppression test methods designed for residential sprinklers (UL 1626) and commercial systems (UL 300) are not optimized for devices developed specifically for residential stovetop fires. There is currently no widely accepted standard test method for residential kitchen fire hazards, although there is an outline for fire test methods for self-contained units, UL300A, ‘‘Outline of Investigation for Extinguishing System Units for Residential Range Top Cooking Surfaces’’.

interested parties and an inadequate response (in this case no 
response) from respondent interested parties, the Department is 
conducting an expedited sunset review to determine whether revocation 
of the CVD order on CTL plate from Mexico would lead to the 
continuation or recurrence of a countervailable subsidy. See section 19 
CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C) 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 CTL plate from 
Mexico 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 final results of the expedited sunset review of the CVD 
order on CTL plate from Mexico on or about May 30, 2006, 90 days from 
the original scheduled date of the expedited final sunset review.
