(Cosmetic Kitting), Ronkonkoma, New York An application has been submitted to the Executive Secretary of the Foreign– Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the Town of Islip (New York), operator of foreign–trade zone (FTZ) 52, requesting temporary/interim manufacturing (T/ IM) authority within FTZ 52, at the facility of TKD Industries, Inc. (TKD) located in Ronkonkoma, New York. The application was filed on June 20, 2006. The TKD facility (85 employees) is located within FTZ 52 at 200 Trade Zone Drive in Ronkonkoma, New York. Under T/IM procedures, the company has requested authority to manufacture cosmetic kits (HTS 3303.00, 3304.10, 3304.20, 3304.91, and 3305.10; these products enter the United States duty free). The company may source the following input items from abroad for manufacturing the finished products under T/IM authority, as delineated in TKD’s application: pre–shave/after– shave (HTS 3307.10); deodorants/ antiperspirants (3307.20); bath products (3307.30); plastic boxes (3923.10); plastic bottles (3923.30); plastic caps (3923.50); plastic displays (3923.90); dust covers (3926.90); glass containers (7010.90); and applicators (9616.20).

ACTION: Notices; correction. AGENCY: SUMMARY: From September 7, 2005, through November 10, 2005, the Department of Commerce issued notices of antidumping and countervailing duty decisions in which the title of the official signing the notice was incorrect. This document corrects the title of the officials that signed notices during that period.

Background The Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Policy and Negotiation (DAS/IA) began serving as the Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration on January 9, 2005, when the position became vacant. The DAS/IA assumed this position under the Vacancies Reform Act (VRA) because he is the first principal to the Assistant Secretary. The VRA, however, only permits an individual to serve in an ‘‘Acting’’ capacity for a certain number of days after a vacancy has occurred. In this case, the DAS/IA was permitted to serve in an ‘‘Acting’’ capacity until September 7, 2005. After that time, he/she must revert to his/her original title, but may perform the nonexclusive duties of the vacant office. Through an oversight, the DAS/IA did not cease using the title ‘‘Acting’’ after September 7, 2005. From September 7, 2005 through November 10, 2005, the DAS/IA continued to sign various antidumping and countervailing duty decisions as ‘‘Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.’’ The DAS/ IA also, on occasion, delegated those duties to other individuals within the Import Administration, who then signed E:\FR\FM\27JNN1.SGM 27JNN1 36518 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 123 / Tuesday, June 27, 2006 / Notices decisions as ‘‘Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. On November 10, 2005, the President nominated an Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. Under the VRA the DAS/IA was authorized to resume (and did resume) service as Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration until the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration was sworn into office on January 3, 2006. Decisions issued by Import Administration from September 7, 2005, through November 10, 2005, were signed by individuals incorrectly using the title ‘‘Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration’’. The Under Secretary for International Trade, on June 19, 2006, designated all of the individuals who signed items in the capacity of Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration from September 7, 2005, through November 10, 2005, as ‘‘Acting Deputy Under Secretary for International Trade’’ for purposes of signing those decisions.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain welded stainless steel pipe from Taiwan. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 70 FR 72109 (December 1, 2005). On December 30, 2005, Froch Enterprise (‘‘Froch’’), stating that it was formerly Jaung Yuann Enterprise Co., Ltd., timely requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of Froch. The Department published a notice of the initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review of certain welded stainless steel pipe from Taiwan for the period December 1, 2004, through November 30, 2005. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 5241 (February 1, 2006). On June 5, 2006, Froch withdrew its request for an administrative review. Rescission of Review The Department’s regulations at section 351.213(d)(1) provide that the Department will rescind an administrative review if the party that requested the review withdraws its request for review within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review, or withdraws its request at a later date if the Department determines that it is reasonable to extend the time limit for withdrawing the request. Although Froch withdrew its request after the 90day deadline, the Department finds it reasonable to extend the withdrawal deadline because the Department has not yet devoted any significant time and resources to this review, and Froch was the only party to request a review.1 Further, we find that Froch’s withdrawal does not constitute an abuse of our procedures. Therefore, we are 1 See, e.g., Persulfates from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 13810 (March 17, 2006); See also, Honey from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 42032 (July 21, 2005).

Notification Regarding APOs This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding.

Background

    The Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Policy and Negotiation (DAS/IA) began serving as the Acting 
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration on January 9, 2005, when 
the position became vacant. The DAS/IA assumed this position under the 
Vacancies Reform Act (VRA) because he is the first principal to the 
Assistant Secretary. The VRA, however, only permits an individual to 
serve in an ``Acting'' capacity for a certain number of days after a 
vacancy has occurred. In this case, the DAS/IA was permitted to serve 
in an ``Acting'' capacity until September 7, 2005. After that time, he/
she must revert to his/her original title, but may perform the non-
exclusive duties of the vacant office. Through an oversight, the DAS/IA 
did not cease using the title ``Acting'' after September 7, 2005. From 
September 7, 2005 through November 10, 2005, the DAS/IA continued to 
sign various antidumping and countervailing duty decisions as ``Acting 
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.'' The DAS/IA also, on 
occasion, delegated those duties to other individuals within the Import 
Administration, who then signed

decisions as ``Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. On 
November 10, 2005, the President nominated an Assistant Secretary for 
Import Administration. Under the VRA the DAS/IA was authorized to 
resume (and did resume) service as Acting Assistant Secretary for 
Import Administration until the Assistant Secretary for Import 
Administration was sworn into office on January 3, 2006.
    Decisions issued by Import Administration from September 7, 2005, 
through November 10, 2005, were signed by individuals incorrectly using 
the title ``Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration''. The 
Under Secretary for International Trade, on June 19, 2006, designated 
all of the individuals who signed items in the capacity of Acting 
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration from September 7, 2005, 
through November 10, 2005, as ``Acting Deputy Under Secretary for 
International Trade'' for purposes of signing those decisions.
