Download as PDF 47170 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 158 / Wednesday, August 16, 2006 / Notices On July 25, 2006, the Department issued a memorandum which stated that the CBP data examined by the Department (and referenced in the July 24, 2006, Memorandum) shows that TCW had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR and indicated that the Department intended to rescind the administrative review with respect to TCW. See the July 25, 2006, memorandum from Brian Smith to the file entitled, ‘‘Intent to Rescind in Part the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review on Certain Cased Pencils from the People’s Republic of China.’’ The Department also provided parties in this review until August 1, 2006, to submit comments on the July 24, 2006, Memorandum. On July 31, 2006, the petitioner stated that it did not oppose the Department’s intention of rescinding this review with respect to TCW. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Partial Rescission of Review Section 351.213(d)(1) of the Department’s regulations stipulates that the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review, unless the Secretary decides that it is reasonable to extend this time limit. In this case, SFTC withdrew its request for review before the 90-day deadline. Because SFTC was the only party to request the administrative review of itself, we are rescinding, in part, this review of the antidumping duty order on certain cased pencils from the PRC with respect to SFTC. Section 351.213(d)(3) of the Department’s regulations stipulates that the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, with respect to a particular exporter or producer, if the Secretary concludes that, during the period covered by the review, there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise. Therefore, we are also rescinding this review with respect to TCW because the Department reviewed CBP data which indicated that TCW did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. This review will continue with respect to the other companies listed in the Initiation Notice. Assessment The Department will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Antidumping duties for the rescinded companies, where applicable, shall be assessed at a rate equal to the cash deposit of estimated VerDate Aug<31>2005 20:24 Aug 15, 2006 Jkt 208001 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. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751 and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). Dated: August 10, 2006. Stephen J.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 1, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published the initiation of the administrative review of 
the antidumping duty order on honey from the People's Republic of China 
(``PRC''). See Notice of Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 
5241 (February 1, 2006). This review covers the period December 1, 
2004, through November 30, 2005. The preliminary results of review are 
currently due no later than September 5, 2006.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act''), the Department shall make a preliminary 
determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order 
within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date 
of publication of the order. The Act further provides that the 
Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 days if it determines 
it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time 
period. See Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
    Completion of the preliminary results within the 245-day period is 
not practicable because of the Department's verification schedule of 
the companies involved in this administrative review. It is also more 
practicable to align this administrative review with an ongoing new 
shipper review of honey from PRC. See Honey from the People's Republic 
of China: Notice of Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary Results 
of New Shipper Review, 71 FR 37904 (July 3, 2006). Therefore, in 
accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is 
extending the time period for completion of the preliminary results of 
this review by 80 days until November 21, 2006.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) 
and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: August 9, 2006.
