Download as PDF 56476 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 187 / Wednesday, September 27, 2006 / Notices 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. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.
