On September 20, 2005, the Department initiated a review with respect to Since Hardware, Shunde Yongjiang, and Forever Holdings. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 56631 (September 28, 2005). On April 19, 2006, in accordance with 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), the Department extended the deadline for the preliminary results of review until August 4, 2006. See Floor–Standing, Metal–Top Ironing Tables and Parts Thereof from the People’s Republic of China: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of the First Administrative Review, 71 FR 20076 (April 19, 2006). Additional Extension of Time Limits for the Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1) require the Department to issue the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the order or suspension agreement for which the administrative review was requested, and the final results of the review within 120 days after the date on which the notice of the preliminary results was published in the Federal Register. However, if the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2) allow the Department to extend the 245-day period to 365 days and the 120-day period to 180 days. Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h), we determine that it is not practicable to complete this administrative review within the statutory time limit of 245 days. The Department requires additional time to analyze outstanding supplemental questionnaire responses for both Since Hardware and Shunde Yongjian regarding their factors of production and time to issue additional supplemental questionnaires, if necessary. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), the Department is fully extending the time limit for the completion of these preliminary results by an additional 27 days to August 31, 2006. The final results, in turn, will be due 120 days after the date of issuance of the preliminary results, unless extended.

On July 6, 2006, Cataco clarified that during the POR, it also exported under the name Can Tho Seafood Export, and that its withdrawal letter also covers that name. Also on July 6, 2006, Petitioner withdrew its review requests for 29 additional companies: AAAS Logistics; American Container Line; Angiang Agricultural Technology Service Company; An Giang Fisheries Import and Export Joint Stock Company (Agifish); Bentre Frozen Aquaproduct Exports; Bentre Aquaproduct Imports & Exports; Can Tho Agricultural Products; Can Tho Seafood Exports; Cautre Enterprises; Dong Phuc Huynh; General Imports & Exports; Grobest & I Mei Industry Vietnam (Grobest); Hai Thuan Export Seaproducts Processing Co.

Partial Rescission Pursuant to section 351.213(d)(1) of the Department’s regulations, the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested the review withdraws the request within ninety days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. Because the Petitioner’s and certain Respondent’s requests were timely, in accordance with section 351.213(d)(1) of the Department’s regulations, we are rescinding this review with respect to the following 34 companies: AVF; Cadovimex; Camimex; Cafatex; Cataco; Can Tho Seafood Exports*; Coastal Fishery Development; Cofidec; C P Vietnam Livestock Co. Ltd.; C P Livestock; Cuulong Seapro; Seaprodex Danang; Fimex VN; Frozen Seafoods Fty4; Minh Hai Export Frozen Seafood 4 Frozen Seafoods Fty is a subsidiary of Thuan Phuoc.

In addition, the Department is rescinding this review with respect to the following 34 additional companies which did not receive a separate rate in the prior segment (the less–than-fair– value investigation) of this proceeding: Agrimex; Hacota; Hoa Nam Marine Agricultural; Seafood Processing Imports Exports Vietnam; Vita; AAAS Logistics; American Container Line; Angiang Agricultural Technology Service Company; Agifish; Bentre Frozen Aquaproduct Exports; Bentre Aquaproduct Imports & Exports*; Can Tho Agricultural Products; Cautre Enterprises; Dong Phuc Huynh; General Imports & Exports; Grobest; Hai Thuan Export Seaproducts Processing Co.

Ltd.; Thien Ma Seafood; Khanh Loi Trading; and Vilfood Co. For purposes of initiation of this administrative review, the Department accepted requests for review of these entities based upon the premise that such entities would seek to demonstrate in this review that they were, in law and in fact, separate from the Vietnam–wide entity, and therefore included Frozen Seafoods Fty as part of the Thuan Phuoc entity when granting that entity separate rate status in the original investigation. See Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, 70 FR 5152 (February 1, 2005). In its separate rate certification filed on April 28, 2006, Thuan Phuoc reported that this relationship remained unchanged during the POR. 5 Tho Quang is a subsidiary of Seaprodex Danang. The Department included Tho Quang as part of the Seaprodex Danang entity when granting that entity separate rate status in the original investigation. Id.

However, as the requests for review of these entities have been withdrawn, these entities may be subject to this review as part of the single Vietnam– wide entity. Therefore, the Department will provide assessment instructions to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) for these entities after the final results of this administrative review. Assessment Rates The Department will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For those companies for which this review has been rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of this notice. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this review is being rescinded, as of the publication date of this notice, of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. 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. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction. This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).

Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act provides further that, if the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within this time VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:46 Jul 26, 2006 Jkt 208001 period, the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days. The Department has determined that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results by the current deadline of August 2, 2006, because it received a request to conduct a sales– below-cost investigation on July 11, 2006. Additional time is necessary to consider whether to initiate a sales– below-cost investigation, give MS Galati an opportunity to provide relevant information, review MS Galati’s response, and, if appropriate, conduct the cost analysis as part of the calculation of the weighted–average margin for MS Galati. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), the Department is extending the time limit for the preliminary results by 75 days to October 16, 2006.

See PO 00000 Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 56631 (September 28, 2005). Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to issue preliminary results of review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results were published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month. On April 26, 2006, the Department published a notice extending the preliminary results for this review by 90 days until August 1, 2006. See Notice of Extension of Deadline for the Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags from Thailand, 71 FR 24641 (April 26, 2006). Since the publication of the extension notice, the Department conducted home–market sales and cost verifications of two of the seven respondents involved in this review and has a number of issues to address as a result of these verifications. In addition, the Department must also address several complex issues raised in recent filings by interested parties involving, among others, costs of production, affiliated–party inputs, direct material expenses, and sales reporting. Due to the complexity of the issues in this review, the Department needs additional time to conduct its analysis. Therefore, we are extending the deadline for issuing the preliminary results of this review by an additional 30 days until August 31, 2006. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.

investigation. Id. In its separate rate certification filed on May 
5, 2006, Seaprodex Danang reported that this relationship remained 
unchanged during the POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In addition, the Department is rescinding this review with respect 
to the following 34 additional companies which did not receive a 
separate rate in the prior segment (the less-than-fair-value 
investigation) of this proceeding: Agrimex; Hacota; Hoa Nam Marine 
Agricultural; Seafood Processing Imports Exports Vietnam; Vita; AAAS 
Logistics; American Container Line; Angiang Agricultural Technology 
Service Company; Agifish; Bentre Frozen Aquaproduct Exports; Bentre 
Aquaproduct Imports & Exports[ast]; Can Tho Agricultural Products; 
Cautre Enterprises; Dong Phuc Huynh; General Imports & Exports; 
Grobest; Hai Thuan Export Seaproducts Processing Co. Ltd.; Hai Viet; 
Hatrang Frozen Seaproduct Fty; Kim Anh Co. Ltd.; Lamson Import-Export 
Foodstuffs Corporation; Saigon Orchide; Sea Product; Sonacos; 
Seaspimex; Tacvan Frozen Seafoods Processing Export Company; Thami 
Shipping & Airfreight; Thanh Long; Matourimex Hochiminh City Branch; 
Truc An Company; Vietnam Northern Viking Technologie Co. Ltd.; Thien Ma 
Seafood; Khanh Loi Trading; and Vilfood Co. For purposes of initiation 
of this administrative review, the Department accepted requests for 
review of these entities based upon the premise that such entities 
would seek to demonstrate in this review that they were, in law and in 
fact, separate from the Vietnam-wide entity, and therefore entitled to 
a rate separate from the rate established for the Vietnam-wide entity. 
However, as the requests for review of these entities have been 
withdrawn, these entities may be subject to this review as part of the 
single Vietnam-wide entity. Therefore, the Department will provide 
assessment instructions to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') for these entities after the final results of this 
administrative review.

Assessment Rates

    The Department will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries. For those companies for which this review has 
been rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to 
the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time 
of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department will issue appropriate 
assessment instructions directly to CBP within 15 days of publication 
of this notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this 
review is being rescinded, as of the publication date of this notice, 
of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a 
certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to 
liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure 
to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary's 
presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and 
the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

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. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of 
APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO 
is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 
777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(4).
