(Norvanco) located in Sumner, Washington. The application was filed on September 26, 2006. The Norvanco facility (100 employees) is located within Site 8 of FTZ 86 at 1800 140th Avenue East in Sumner, Washington. Under T/IM procedures, the company has requested authority to process (kit) certain imported components into home theater systems (HTS 8527.31; these systems enter the United States duty free) on behalf of the company’s client, Panasonic Consumer Electronics Co. Norvanco may source the following potentially dutiable components/inputs from abroad for processing under T/IM authority, as delineated in the company’s application: speaker boxes (HTS 8518.22); subwoofers (8518.21); and packing materials (3923.90). Duty rates on these inputs range from 3.0% to 4.9%, ad valorem. T/IM authority could be granted for a period of up to two years. Norvanco has also submitted a request for permanent FTZ manufacturing authority (for which Board filing is pending) for the activity described above. FTZ procedures would allow Norvanco to elect the finished–product duty rate for the imported components/ inputs listed above. The application states that the company would also realize logistical/paperwork savings under FTZ procedures. The applicant indicates that the proposed activity is currently conducted abroad and that T/ IM FTZ authority could lead to increased U.S. activity and employment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 9, 1994, the Department published the antidumping duty 
order on stainless steel flanges from India. See Amended Final 
Determination and Antidumping Duty Order; Certain Forged Stainless 
Steel Flanges from India, 59 FR 5994 (February 9, 1994). On February 
28, 2006, we received requests for new shipper reviews for the period 
February 1, 2005, through January 31, 2006, from Kunj Forgings Pvt. 
Ltd. (Kunj), Micro Forge (India) Ltd. (Micro), Pradeep Metals Ltd. 
(Pradeep), and Rollwell Forge, Ltd. (Rollwell). On April 6, 2006, the 
Department published a notice initiating the requested reviews. See 
Stainless Steel Flanges from India: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping 
Duty New Shipper Reviews, 71 FR 17439, (April 6, 2006). The preliminary 
results of the new shipper review with respect to Kunj are currently 
due no later than September 27, 2006.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930 as 
amended (the Act), the Department shall issue preliminary results in a 
new shipper review of an antidumping duty order within 180 days after 
the date on which the new shipper review was initiated. The Act further 
provides, however, that the Department may extend the deadline for 
completion of the preliminary results of a new shipper review from 180 
days to 300 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily 
complicated. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act. We determine that 
this new shipper review is extraordinarily complicated because Kunj 
produces several model types of flanges the Department has not analyzed 
in previous segments of this administrative proceeding.

Department's regulations allow the Department to extend the deadline
