On July 26, 2006, because one of the selected mandatory respondents notified the Department that it would not respond to the Department’s E:\FR\FM\25AUN1.SGM 25AUN1 50388 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 165 / Friday, August 25, 2006 / Notices cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES questionnaire, the Department selected one additional mandatory respondent in the administrative review for the PRC. See the memorandum from Erin Begnal to James C. Doyle, dated July 26, 2006, entitled, ‘‘Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the People’s Republic of China: Selection of Additional Mandatory Respondent.’’ On July 27, 2006, the Department rescinded the administrative review for certain Vietnamese companies due to the withdrawal of review requests. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Partial Rescission of the First Administrative Review, 71 FR 42628 (July 27, 2006). On July 31, 2006, the Department rescinded the administrative review for certain PRC companies due to the withdrawal of review requests. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the People’s Republic of China: Partial Rescission of the First Administrative Review, 71 FR 43107 (July 31, 2006). Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination in an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order or finding for which a review is requested. Consistent with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department may extend the 245–day period to 365 days if it is not practicable to complete the review within a 245–day period. The deadline for the preliminary results of these reviews is currently October 31, 2006. The Department determines that completion of the preliminary results of these administrative reviews within the statutory time period is not practicable. Due to the additional time needed for respondent selection, the Department was not able to issue its initial antidumping duty questionnaires to the selected companies until June 20, 2006 in the PRC review, July 11, 2006, in the Brazilian, Ecuadorian, Indian, and Thai reviews, and July 12, 2006 for the Vietnamese review. The Department thus requires additional time to conduct its analysis for each company in these administrative and new shipper reviews. Therefore, given the additional time needed to conduct complete analyses for these administrative and new shipper reviews, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 120 days, until February 28, 2007. The final VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:47 Aug 24, 2006 Jkt 208001 results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results. We are also extending the time limit for parties to submit new factual information, including surrogate value information to be considered for the preliminary results, until November 30, 2006, for the PRC and Vietnamese reviews. Parties should note that the due date for comments regarding surrogate country selection remains September 1, 2006, for Vietnam, and September 7, 2006, for the PRC.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The ICC produces a family of Codes and Standards that are comprehensive, coordinated and are widely used across the country in the regulation of the built environment. Local, state and federal agencies use these codes and standards as the basis for developing regulations concerning new and existing construction. The ICC code development process is initiated when proposals from interested persons—supported by written data, views, or arguments—are solicited, received and then published in the Proposed Changes document. This document is distributed a minimum of 30 days in advance of the Code Development Hearings and serves as the agenda for that session. At the Code Development Hearing, the ICC Code Development Committee for each code or subject area of the code considers testimony and takes action on each proposal (Approval, Disapproval, or Approval as Modified). At the conclusion of committee action on each proposal, any member of the public assembly may make a motion for a vote by the ICC members in attendance (‘‘assembly action’’) to consider an action different than the committee action. Successful assembly actions on code changes become part of the record of public comments and are considered at the Final Action Hearing. Following the Code Development Hearing, the Report of the Public Hearing is published, and identifies the disposition of each proposal, the reason for the committee’s action and successful assembly actions. Any person may provide additional comment on the committee actions in the public comment period following the first E:\FR\FM\25AUN1.SGM 25AUN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On March 23, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published a notice of initiation of a new shipper review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the 
People's Republic of China (PRC), covering the period July 16, 2004, 
through January 31, 2006. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the 
People's Republic of China: Initiation of New Shipper Review, 71 FR 
14681 (March 23, 2006). On March 24, 2006, the Department published a 
notice of initiation of a new shipper review of the antidumping duty 
order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the Socialist Republic of 
Vietnam (Vietnam), covering the period July 16, 2004, through January 
31, 2006. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist 
Republic of Vietnam: Initiation of New Shipper Review, 71 FR 14834 
(March 24, 2006).
    On April 7, 2006, the Department published notices of initiation of 
administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on certain frozen 
warmwater shrimp from Vietnam and the PRC, covering the period July 16, 
2004, through January 31, 2006, and on certain frozen warmwater shrimp 
from Brazil, Ecuador, India, and Thailand, covering the period August 
4, 2004, through January 31, 2006. See Notice of Initiation of 
Administrative Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders on Frozen 
Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and the

Initiation of Administrative Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders on 
Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil, Ecuador, India, and 
Thailand, 71 FR 17819 (April 7, 2006).
    On May 5, 2006, the Department published a notice aligning the new 
shipper review and the administrative review for the PRC case. See 
Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the People's Republic of China: 
Notice of Postponement of Time Limits for New Shipper Antidumping Duty 
Reviews in Conjunction with Administrative Review, 71 FR 26454 (May 5, 
2006). On May 31, 2006, the Department aligned the new shipper review 
and the administrative review for the Vietnam case. See the 
Department's May 31, 2006, letter, entitled, ``Antidumping Duty New 
Shipper Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist 
Republic of Vietnam (Vietnam): Alignment with Administrative Review.''
    On June 16, 2006, after issuing two rounds of quantity and value 
questionnaires and receiving responses from certain companies, the 
Department selected three mandatory respondents in each of the 
administrative reviews for Vietnam and the PRC. See the memoranda from 
James C. Doyle to Stephen J. Claeys, dated June 16, 2006, entitled: 
``Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater 
Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Selection of 
Respondents'' and ``Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain 
Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the People's Republic of China: Selection 
of Respondents.''
    On July 11, 2006, due to the withdrawal of review requests for 
certain companies, including the three mandatory respondents, the 
Department selected three additional mandatory respondents in the 
administrative review for Vietnam. See the memorandum from Cindy Lai 
Robinson to James C. Doyle, dated July 11, 2006, entitled, 
``Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater 
Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Selection of Additional 
Mandatory Respondents.''
    Also, on July 11, 2006, after issuing two rounds of quantity and 
value questionnaires and receiving responses from certain companies, 
the Department selected two mandatory respondents in the administrative 
reviews for Brazil and Ecuador and three mandatory respondents in the 
administrative reviews for India and Thailand. See the memoranda from 
Irene Darzenta Tzafolias to Stephen J. Claeys, dated July 11, 2006, 
entitled: ``Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen 
Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil: Selection of Respondents,'' ``Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from 
Ecuador: Selection of Respondents,'' ``Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India: Selection of 
Respondents,'' and ``Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain 
Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand: Selection of Respondents.''
    On July 20 and 21, 2006, the Department rescinded the 
administrative reviews for certain Brazilian, Ecuadorian, Indian, and 
Thai companies due to the withdrawal of review requests. See Certain 
Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil: Partial Rescission of the 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 41199 (July 20, 2006); 
Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Ecuador: Partial Rescission of the 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 41198 (July 20, 2006); 
Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India: Partial Rescission of the 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 41419 (July 21, 2006); 
Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand: Partial Rescission of 
the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 41200 (July 20, 
2006).
    On July 26, 2006, because one of the selected mandatory respondents 
notified the Department that it would not respond to the Department's

[[Page 50388]]

questionnaire, the Department selected one additional mandatory 
respondent in the administrative review for the PRC. See the memorandum 
from Erin Begnal to James C. Doyle, dated July 26, 2006, entitled, 
``Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater 
Shrimp from the People's Republic of China: Selection of Additional 
Mandatory Respondent.''
    On July 27, 2006, the Department rescinded the administrative 
review for certain Vietnamese companies due to the withdrawal of review 
requests. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist 
Republic of Vietnam: Partial Rescission of the First Administrative 
Review, 71 FR 42628 (July 27, 2006). On July 31, 2006, the Department 
rescinded the administrative review for certain PRC companies due to 
the withdrawal of review requests. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp 
from the People's Republic of China: Partial Rescission of the First 
Administrative Review, 71 FR 43107 (July 31, 2006).

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination in an 
administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of an order or finding for which a review is 
requested. Consistent with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the 
Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it is not 
practicable to complete the review within a 245-day period. The 
deadline for the preliminary results of these reviews is currently 
October 31, 2006.
    The Department determines that completion of the preliminary 
results of these administrative reviews within the statutory time 
period is not practicable. Due to the additional time needed for 
respondent selection, the Department was not able to issue its initial 
antidumping duty questionnaires to the selected companies until June 
20, 2006 in the PRC review, July 11, 2006, in the Brazilian, 
Ecuadorian, Indian, and Thai reviews, and July 12, 2006 for the 
Vietnamese review. The Department thus requires additional time to 
conduct its analysis for each company in these administrative and new 
shipper reviews.
    Therefore, given the additional time needed to conduct complete 
analyses for these administrative and new shipper reviews, in 
accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) the Act, we are extending the time 
period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 120 days, until 
February 28, 2007. The final results continue to be due 120 days after 
the publication of the preliminary results. We are also extending the 
time limit for parties to submit new factual information, including 
surrogate value information to be considered for the preliminary 
results, until November 30, 2006, for the PRC and Vietnamese reviews. 
Parties should note that the due date for comments regarding surrogate 
country selection remains September 1, 2006, for Vietnam, and September 
7, 2006, for the PRC.
    This notice is published pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).

    Dated: August 21, 2006.
