Finally, also excluded from this order are redraw hollows for cold–drawing when used in the production of cold–drawn pipe or tube. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of this order is dispositive. Changes Since the Preliminary Results VMB stated in its case brief dated June 27, 2006, that the Department made a clerical error in the dumping margin calculation in the preliminary results. Specifically, VMB argued that the Department failed to convert U.S. expenses incurred and reported in Brazilian reais to U.S. dollars. See VMB Case Brief, dated June 27, 2006. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we concur with VMB and have corrected these errors. We note that the corrections did not change the margin for the final results. See Memorandum to the File from Helen M. Kramer, Team Leader, and David K. Kraus, Case Analyst: Analysis Memorandum for the Final Results of Administrative Review of Certain Small Diameter Seamless Carbon and Alloy Steel Standard, Line and Pressure Pipe from Brazil: V & M do Brasil, S.A., dated August 31, 2006 (Analysis Memo). Final Results Of Review: As a result of our review, we determine that the following weighted– average margin exists for the period of August 1, 2004, through July 31, 2005: Producer Weighted–Average Margin (Percentage) rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES V & M do Brasil, S.A. 0.00 percent Assessment Rates The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries, pursuant to section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b). The Department calculated importer– specific duty assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of the examined sales for that importer. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of seamless pipe during the POR produced by VMB where VMB did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all– others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company or companies VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:48 Sep 26, 2006 Jkt 208001 involved in the transaction. For a discussion of this clarification, see Notice of Policy Concerning Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of these final results of review. Cash Deposit Requirements Furthermore, the following deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of seamless pipe from Brazil entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of these final results, as provided by section 751(a) of the Act: (1) for the company covered by this review, the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not covered in this review but covered in the investigation, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company–specific rate from the final determination; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review or the investigation, but the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be that established for the producer of the merchandise for the most recent period; and (4) if neither the exporter nor the producer is a firm covered in this review or the investigation, the cash deposit rate will be 124.94 percent, the ‘‘All Others’’ rate established in the less–than-fair–value investigation. See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order and Amended Final Determination: Certain Small Diameter Seamless Carbon and Alloy Steel Standard, Line and Pressure Pipe from Brazil, 60 FR 39707 (August 3, 1995). These deposit rates, when imposed, shall remain in effect until publication of the final results of the next administrative review. Notification of Interested Parties This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers 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 antidumping duties occurred, and in the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This notice also is the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 56475 with 19 CFR 351.305. 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 the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. We are issuing and publishing these results and notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: September 20, 2006. David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

Background

    On July 6, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published the preliminary results of the new shipper reviews of the 
antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture (``WBF'') from the 
People's Republic of China (``PRC''), covering the period June 24, 
2004, through June 30, 2005, and the following exporters: Shenyang 
Kunyu Wood Industry Co., Ltd., Dongguan Landmark Furniture Products 
Ltd., Meikangchi (Nantong) Furniture Company Ltd, and WBE Industries 
(Hui-Yang) Co., Ltd. See Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's 
Republic of China: Preliminary Results of 2004-2005 Semi-Annual New 
Shipper Reviews and Notice of Final Rescission of One New Shipper 
Review, 71 FR 38373 (July 6, 2006) (``Preliminary Results''). The final 
results are currently due on September 25, 2006.

Extension of Time Limits for Final Results

    Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``the Act''),

[[Page 56476]]

and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) require the Department to issue the final 
results of a new shipper review within 90 days after the date on which 
the preliminary results were issued. The Department may, however, 
extend the deadline for completion of the final results of a new 
shipper review to 150 days if it determines that the case is 
extraordinarily complicated. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2).
    As a result of extraordinarily complicated issues raised in the 
review segment, specifically the multiple issues raised with regard to 
the calculation of the surrogate financial ratios based on the 
financial statements of seven surrogate companies, it is not 
practicable to complete these new shipper reviews within the current 
time limit. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for 
the completion of the final results by 45 days until November 9, 2006, 
in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(i)(2).
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
section 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: September 20, 2006.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
