Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 63 / Monday, April 3, 2006 / Notices antidumping duty orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, and notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail were the orders to be revoked.2 On March 7, 2006, the ITC determined pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on PSF from Korea and Taiwan would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.3 Scope of the Orders For the purposes of these orders, the product covered is PSF. PSF is defined as synthetic staple fibers, not carded, combed or otherwise processed for spinning, of polyesters measuring 3.3 decitex (3 denier, inclusive) or more in diameter. This merchandise is cut to lengths varying from one inch (25 mm) to five inches (127 mm). The merchandise subject to these orders may be coated, usually with a silicon or other finish, or not coated. PSF is generally used as stuffing in sleeping bags, mattresses, ski jackets, comforters, cushions, pillows, and furniture. Merchandise of less than 3.3 decitex (less than 3 denier) currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) at subheading 5503.20.00.20 is specifically excluded from these orders. Also specifically excluded from these orders are polyester staple fibers of 10 to 18 denier that are cut to lengths of 6 to 8 inches (fibers used in the manufacture of carpeting). In addition, low–melt PSF is excluded from these orders. Low– melt PSF is defined as a bi–component fiber with an outer sheath that melts at a significantly lower temperature than its inner core. The merchandise subject to these orders is currently classifiable in the HTSUS at subheadings 5503.20.00.45 and 5503.20.00.65. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under the orders is dispositive. wwhite on PROD1PC61 with NOTICES Determination As a result of the determinations by the Department and the ITC that revocation of these antidumping duty orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, and material injury to an industry in the United 2 See Certain Polyester Staple Fiber from the Republic of Korea and Taiwan: Final Results of the Expedited Sunset Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders, 70 FR 45368 (Aug. 5, 2005). 3 See Certain Polyester Staple Fiber from Korea and Taiwan, Investigation Nos. 731-TA-825 and 826 (Review), 71 FR 14721 (Mar. 23, 2006).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 1, 2005, the Department published a notice of opportunity 
to request an administrative review of the antidumping order on 
seamless line and pressure pipe from Brazil for the period of review 
(``POR'') August 1, 2004, through July 31, 2005. See Antidumping or 
Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; 
Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 70 FR 44085 (August 1, 
2005). On August 31, 2005, United States Steel Corporation (``US 
Steel''), the petitioner, requested that we conduct an administrative 
review of V&M do Brazil S.A. (``VMB'') sales to the United States 
during the POR. On September 28, 2005, the Department published in the 
Federal Register a notice of initiation of this antidumping duty 
administrative review covering the POR August 1, 2004, through July 31, 
2005. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 56631 
(September 28, 2005). The preliminary results for this review are 
currently due no later than May 3, 2006.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act''), and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), the Department may 
extend the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of a 
review if it determines that it is not practicable to complete the 
preliminary results within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of the date of publication of the order for which the 
administrative review was requested.
    The Department has determined it is not practicable to complete 
this review within the originally anticipated time limit, in accordance 
with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), because 
the Department requires additional time to issue a second supplemental 
questionnaire and resolve cost issues, and because of its workload. 
Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for the 
preliminary results by 30 days, to not later than June 2, 2006. The 
deadline for the final results of this review will continue to be 120 
days after the publication of the preliminary results.
    This extension is published in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).

    Dated: March 23, 2006.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
