(Apparel, Footwear, and Sporting Equipment), Hebron, Kentucky An application has been submitted to the Foreign–Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the Northern Kentucky Foreign–Trade Zone Inc., grantee of FTZ 47, requesting special–purpose subzone status for the warehousing and distribution facilities (apparel, footwear, and sporting equipment) of adidas Sales, Inc. (adidas), located in Hebron, Kentucky. The application was submitted pursuant to the Foreign– Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a–81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on April 28, 2006. The facilities for which subzone status is proposed are located at three sites in Hebron, Kentucky (62.19 acres total; 1,012,507 sq. ft. of enclosed space): Site # 1 (25 acres; 492,507 sq. ft. of enclosed space) located at 1081/1085 Aviation Boulevard; Site # 2 (12.09 acres; 205,000 sq. ft. of enclosed space) located at 2055/2095 Global Way; and Site # 3 (25.1 acres; 315,000 sq. ft. of enclosed space) located at 1505 Worldwide Boulevard.

On March 7, 2006, the Department published notification of alignment for the final determinations in the antidumping and countervailing duty investigations of CLPP from Indonesia. See Certain Lined Paper Products From India and Indonesia: Alignment of First Countervailing Duty Determination With Antidumping Duty Determination, 71 FR 11379 (March 7, 2006).

EFFECTIVE DATE: May 9, 2006. SUMMARY: In response to a request from Gharda Chemicals, Ltd., on January 27, 2006, the Department of Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice announcing the initiation of a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on carbazole violet pigment 23 from India covering the period December 1, 2004, through November 30, 2005. On April 21, 2006, Gharda Chemicals, Ltd., withdrew its request for a new shipper review and, therefore, we are rescinding this review. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dmitry Vladimirov or Minoo Hatten at (202) 482–0665 and (202) 482–1690, respectively, Office 5, AD/CVD Operations, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background The Department of Commerce (the Department) published the antidumping duty order on carbazole violet pigment 23 from India on December 29, 2004 (69 FR 77988). On September 22, 2005, we received a timely request for a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on carbazole violet pigment 23 from India from Gharda Chemicals, Ltd. (Gharda). On January 17, 2006, Gharda submitted additional information to supplement its new shipper review request in response to our January 10, 2006, letter requesting that Gharda correct certain deficiencies in its new shipper review request. Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(d)(1), we initiated a new shipper review on January 27, 2006, for shipments of carbazole violet PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 pigment 23 from India produced and exported by Gharda (71 FR 4569). Gharda withdrew its request for a new shipper review on April 21, 2006. Rescission of New Shipper Review Section 351.214(f)(1) of the Department’s regulations provides that the Department may rescind a new shipper review if the party that requested the review withdraws its request for review within sixty days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Although Gharda withdrew its request after the 60–day deadline, we find it reasonable to extend the deadline because we have not yet committed significant resources to the Gharda new shipper review. Specifically, we have not started calculating a margin for Gharda and we have not yet verified Gharda’s data. Further, Gharda was the only party to request the review. Finally, we have not received any submissions opposing the withdrawal of the request for the review. For these reasons, we are rescinding the new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on carbazole violet pigment 23 from India with respect to Gharda in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(f)(1). Notification As of the date of the publication of this rescission notice in the Federal Register, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection that importers will no longer have the option of posting a bond to fulfill security requirements for shipments of carbazole violet pigment 23 from India produced and exported by Gharda and entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption in the United States. We will issue assessment instructions within 15 days of the date of the publication of this notice and, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c), we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess antidumping duties at the cash–deposit rate in effect at the time of entry for all shipments of carbazole violet pigment 23 from India produced and exported by Gharda and entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption during the period December 1, 2004, through November 30, 2005. This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of the return/ destruction of APO material or conversion to judicial protective order is E:\FR\FM\09MYN1.SGM 09MYN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Postponement of Final Determination

    The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is postponing the 
final determination in the antidumping and countervailing duty 
investigations of certain lined paper products (``CLPP'') from 
Indonesia. On October 6, 2005, the Department initiated the antidumping 
duty investigation of CLPP from Indonesia. See Initiation of 
Antidumping Duty Investigation: Certain Lined Paper Products from 
India, Indonesia, and the People's Republic of China, 70 FR 58374 
(October 6, 2005). On October 7, 2005, the Department initiated the 
countervailing duty investigation of CLPP from Indonesia. See 
Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation: Certain Lined Paper 
Products from India (C-533-844) and Indonesia (C- 560-819), 70 FR 58690 
(October 7, 2005).
    On February 13, 2006, the Department published its affirmative 
countervailing duty determination. See Notice of Preliminary 
Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination: Certain Lined Paper 
Products from Indonesia, 71 FR 7524 (February 13, 2006). On February 
17, 2006, Petitioner submitted a letter requesting alignment of the 
final countervailing duty determination with the final determination in 
the companion antidumping investigation. On March 7, 2006, the 
Department published notification of alignment for the final 
determinations in the antidumping and countervailing duty 
investigations of CLPP from Indonesia. See Certain Lined Paper Products 
From India and Indonesia: Alignment of First Countervailing Duty 
Determination With Antidumping Duty Determination, 71 FR 11379 (March 
7, 2006). On March 27, 2006, the Department published its affirmative 
preliminary antidumping duty determination. See Notice of Preliminary 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Lined Paper 
Products from Indonesia, 71 FR 15162 (March 27, 2006). This notice 
states that the Department will issue its final determination no later 
than 75 days after the date of the preliminary determination.
    Section 735(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, (the 
Act) and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2)(ii) provide that a final determination in 
an antidumping duty investigation may be postponed until no later than 
135 days after the date of the

publication of the preliminary determination if, in the event of an 
affirmative preliminary determination, a request for such postponement 
is made by exporters who account for a significant proportion of 
exports of the subject merchandise. Additionally, the Department's 
regulations, at 19 CFR 351.210(e)(2)(ii), require that requests by a 
respondent for postponement of a final determination be accompanied by 
a request for an extension of the provisional measures from a four-
month period to not more than six months.
    On April 24, 2006, in accordance with section 735(a)(2)(A) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2)(ii), PT. Pabrik Kertas Tjiwi Kimia Tbk., 
which is the only mandatory respondent in the antidumping investigation 
and which accounts for a significant portion of exports of CLPP from 
Indonesia (see the Memorandum from Natalie Kempkey to Susan Kuhbach 
entitled ``Antidumping Investigation of Certain Lined Paper Products 
from Indonesia: Selection of Respondents''), requested that the 
Department: (1) Postpone the final determination; and (2) extend the 
provisional measures period from four months to a period not longer 
than six months. Accordingly, pursuant to section 735(a)(2)(A) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2)(ii), because: (1) The preliminary 
determination is affirmative; (2) the requesting exporter accounts for 
a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise in this 
investigation; and (3) no compelling reasons for denial exist, we are 
postponing the final determination until no later than 135 days after 
the publication of the preliminary determination in the Federal 
Register (i.e., until no later than August 9, 2006). Suspension of 
liquidation will be extended accordingly.
    In addition, because the countervailing duty investigation of CLPP 
from Indonesia has been aligned with the concurrent antidumping duty 
investigation under section 705(a)(1) of the Act, the time limit for 
completion of the final determination in the countervailing duty 
investigation will be the same date, August 9, 2006, as the final 
determination of the concurrent antidumping duty investigation. See
