Requests should contain: (1) The party’s name, address and telephone number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of issues to be discussed. See 19 CFR 351.310(c). Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to those raised in the respective case briefs.

The Department will issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of its analysis of issues raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 days after the date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Assessment Rates The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003 (68 FR 23954). This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by the company included in these preliminary results of review for which the reviewed company 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(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). The Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212. The Department VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:52 Oct 05, 2006 Jkt 211001 will issue appropriate appraisement instructions for the company subject to this review directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of the final results of this review. For assessment purposes, we calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping margins calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales. However, for subject merchandise produced by FSAB but imported on behalf of its U.S. affiliate, SMT U.S., we do not have the actual entered value because FSAB was unable to obtain the entered value data for their reported sales from the importer of record. Therefore, for those entries of subject merchandise imported by SMT U.S., we intend to calculate the importer-specific assessment rate by aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all of the U.S. sales examined and dividing that amount by the total quantity of the sales examined. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review if any importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis (i.e., at or above 0.50 percent). See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1). The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the reviewed company will be that established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent, and therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original LTFV investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 5.71 percent, the ‘‘All Others’’ rate made effective by the LTFV investigation. See SSWR Order. These requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until publication of the final results of the next administrative review. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This administrative review and notice are published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221. Dated: September 29, 2006. Stephen J.

App. 2, and the General Services Administration (GSA) rule on Federal Advisory Committee Management, 41 CFR part 101–6, and after consultation with GSA, the Secretary of Commerce has determined that the renewal of the Manufacturing Extension Partnership National Advisory Board is in the public interest in connection with the performance of the duties imposed on the Department by law.

During the next two years, the Board plans to address the implementation of the Next Generation MEP, including the development of new service offerings in the areas of innovation and technology adoption, and strategic partnerships focused on the development of a highlyskilled, entrepreneurial workforce. The Board will consist of five to eleven individuals appointed by the Director of the National Institute of Standards and Technology to assure a balanced membership that will represent the views and needs of customers, providers, and others involved in industrial extension throughout the United States. The Board will function solely as an advisory body and in compliance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act.

This amendment contains alternatives to regulate the harvest and bycatch of red snapper by both the directed commercial and recreational fisheries and the shrimp fishery in the Gulf of Mexico. The need for this amendment arose from the Southeast Data, Assessment and Review (SEDAR) process through which a recent stock assessment showed that the red snapper stock in the Gulf was overfished and overfishing was continuing. In addition, the LEAP will review progress and possible actions with regard to an amendment to potentially allow offshore aquaculture and a reef fish amendment to address individual fishing quotas (IFQs) for grouper and E:\FR\FM\06OCN1.SGM 06OCN1

Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Wooden Bedroom Furniture 
From the People's Republic of China, 70 FR 329 (January 4, 2005). On 
March 7, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register a 
notice of the initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review 
of WBF from the PRC and new shipper reviews for the period June 24, 
2004, through December 31, 2005. See Initiation of Administrative 
Review of Antidumping Duty Order on Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the 
People's Republic of China, 71 FR 11394 (March 7, 2006) and Wooden 
Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic of China: Initiation of 
New Shipper Reviews, 71 FR 11404 (March 7, 2006) (``Initiation of 
Second Annual New Shipper Reviews''). On August 24, 2006, the 
Department aligned the deadlines and the time limits of the new shipper 
reviews of WBF with the 2004-2005 administrative review of WBF. See 
Memorandum to the File from Lilit Astvatsatrian, Case Analyst, through 
Wendy Frankel, Office Director, dated August 24, 2006. The preliminary 
results of these reviews are currently due no later than October 3, 
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 issue preliminary results within 245 
days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order. However, 
if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time 
period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend 
the time period to a maximum of 365 days. Completion of the preliminary 
results of this review within the 245-day period is not practicable 
because the Department needs additional time to analyze information 
pertaining to the respondents' sales practices, factors of production, 
and corporate relationships, to evaluate certain issues raised by the 
petitioners, and to issue and review responses to supplemental 
questionnaires.
    Because it is not practicable to complete this review within the 
time specified under the Act, we are fully extending the time period 
for issuing the preliminary results of review to 365 days until January 
31, 2007, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. The final 
results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the 
preliminary results. This notice is published pursuant to sections 
751(a) and 777(i) of the Act.
