Download as PDF 59078 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 194 / Friday, October 6, 2006 / Notices cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES from other in–scope mixed–wax candles and petroleum wax candles to draw a useful distinction. Additionally, there is further evidence on the record demonstrating that mixed–wax candles are produced in proportions higher than 87.80 percent non–petroleum wax. Accordingly, we find that mixed–wax candles containing any amount of petroleum wax are within the scope of the Order. However, we recognize that there may be types of mixed–wax candles containing a given amount of vegetable– based wax that places these mixed–wax candles outside the scope of the Order. Therefore, we note that interested parties may submit a scope request, pursuant to 351.225 of the Department’s regulations, regarding whether a certain type of mixed–wax candle is outside the scope of the Order. See Issues and Decision Memorandum, at Comments 5 and 6. Consequently, pursuant to section 781(d) of the Act, we continue to find that mixed–wax candles containing any amount of petroleum wax are later– developed merchandise and are within the scope of the Order. All issues raised by the interested parties to which we have responded are listed in the Appendix to this notice and addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by this notice. Parties can find a complete discussion of the issues raised in this inquiry and the corresponding recommendation in this public memorandum, which are on file in the Central Records Unit (‘‘CRU’’), Room B– 099 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the internet at http:// ia.ita.doc.gov/. The paper copy and electronic version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Continuation Of Suspension Of Liquidation Section 351.225(l)(2) of the Department’s regulations states: ‘‘If liquidation has not been suspended, the Secretary will instruct the Customs Service to suspend liquidation and to require a cash deposit of estimated duties, at the applicable rate, for each unliquidated entry of the product entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of initiation of the scope inquiry.’’ In accordance with section 351.225(l)(2) of the Department’s regulations, we will continue to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to suspend liquidation of all entries of mixed–wax VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:45 Oct 05, 2006 Jkt 211001 candles containing any amount of petroleum wax, from the People’s Republic of China that were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after February 25, 2005, the date of initiation of this anticircumvention inquiry. See Notice of Affirmative Preliminary Determination of Circumvention of Antidumping Duty Order: Anti– Circumvention Inquiry of the Antidumping Duty Order on Certain Pasta from Italy, 63 FR 18364, 18366 (April 15, 1998); Notice of Affirmative Final Determination of Circumvention of Antidumping Duty Order: Anti– Circumvention Inquiry of the Antidumping Duty Order on Certain Pasta from Italy, 63 FR 54672, 54675– 6 (October 13, 1998). In the Preliminary Determination, the merchandise subject to suspension of liquidation were mixed–wax candles containing up to 87.80 percent of non– petroleum wax. See Preliminary Determination, 71 FR at 32043–4. However, in this determination, the Department has found that mixed–wax candles containing any amount of petroleum wax are within the scope of the Order. See Issues and Decision Memorandum, at Comments 5 and 6. Section 351.225(l)(3) of the Department’s regulations states: If the Secretary issues a final scope ruling under either paragraph (d) or (f)(4) of this section, to the effect that the product in question is included within the scope of the order, any suspension of liquidation under paragraph (l)(1) or (l)(2) of this section will continue. Where there has been no suspension of liquidation, the Secretary will instruct the Customs Service to suspend liquidation and to require a cash deposit of estimated duties at the applicable rate, for each unliquidated entry of the product entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of initiation of the scope inquiry. Because the Department in the Preliminary Determination did not suspend liquidation for those entries of mixed–wax candles containing an amount of non–petroleum wax greater than 87.80 percent, with the publication of this notice, the Department hereby suspends liquidation of those entries of mixed–wax candles containing any amount of petroleum wax that were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after February 25, 2005, the date of initiation of this anticircumvention inquiry, pursuant to section 351.225(l)(3) of the Department’s regulations. Accordingly, the merchandise subject to suspension of liquidation based on this determination are mixed–wax candles containing any amount of petroleum wax. CBP shall PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 require a cash deposit in the amount of 108.30 percent for all such unliquidated entries, which is the most recently calculated PRC–wide rate. See Amended Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Petroleum Wax Candles from the People’s Republic of China, 69 FR 20858, 20859 (April 19, 2004). This suspension of liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. Notice To Parties This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to the administrative protective orders (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with section 351.305 of the Department’s regulations. 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 terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction. This final circumvention determination is in accordance with section 781(d) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.225(j). Dated: September 29, 2006. Stephen J. Claeys, Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc. E6–16613 Filed 10–5–06; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–DS–S DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE.

See Pure Magnesium from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 18067 (April 10, 2006) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). In the Preliminary Results, we stated that we would issue our final results of review no later than 120 days after the date of publication of the preliminary results (i.e., August 8, 2006). On July 31, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice extending the time limit for the final results of the administrative review from August 8, 2006, to September 7, 2006. See Notice of Extension of Final Result of the 2004–2005 Administrative Review of Pure Magnesium from the People’s Republic of China, 71 FR 43110 (July 31, 2006). Additionally, on September 12, 2006, the Department published a notice extending the time limit for the final results of review until September 29, 2006. See Notice of Extension of Final Results of the 2004– 2005 Administrative Review of Pure Magnesium from the People’s Republic of China, 71 FR 53662 (September 12, 2006).

However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, the Department may extend the time limit for the final results to 180 days. Completion of the final results within the 120-day period is not practicable because this review involves certain complex issues involving valuation of various factors of production. Therefore, we are fully extending the time period for issuing the final results of review to 180 days until October 7, 2006, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. However, because October 7, 2006, falls on a Saturday, and the next business day October 9, 2006 is a federal holiday, the final results will be due on October 10, 2006, the next business day.

SUMMARY: On June 1, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on certain small diameter carbon and alloy seamless standard, line, and pressure pipe (seamless line pipe) from Argentina, Brazil, and Germany pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). See Initiation of Five-year (‘‘Sunset’’) Reviews, 71 FR 31153 (June 1, 2006) (Sunset Initiation). On the basis of a notice of intent to participate and adequate substantive responses filed on behalf of domestic interested parties, and only one notice of intent to participate filed on behalf of a German respondent interested party, Benteler Stahl/Rohr GmbH (Benteler Stahl), the response for which was determined by the Department to be inadequate, the Department conducted expedited (120day) sunset reviews. As a result of these sunset reviews, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty orders would likely lead to the continuation or recurrence of dumping. The dumping margins are identified in the Final Results of Review section of this notice. EFFECTIVE DATE: October 6, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On June 1, 2006, the Department initiated sunset reviews of the PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 59079 antidumping duty orders on seamless line pipe from Argentina, Brazil, and Germany pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See Sunset Initiation. The Department received notices of intent to participate from two domestic interested parties, United States Steel Corporation (US Steel) and Koppel Steel Corporation (Koppel Steel) (collectively, domestic interested parties), within the deadline specified in section 351.218(d)(1)(i) of the Department’s regulations. Domestic interested parties claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as U.S. producers of the domestic like product. We received complete substantive responses from the domestic interested parties within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i) on July 3, 2006. The Department received one substantive response from the German respondent interested party, Benteler Stahl, on July 3, 2006. On July 14, 2006, we received rebuttal responses from domestic interested parties and Benteler Stahl. After reviewing its substantive and rebuttal responses, the Department determined that Benteler Stahl’s submissions were inadequate, pursuant to sections 218(e)(1)(ii)(A) and (C) of the Department’s regulations. See Memorandum from Dena M. Crossland, Import Compliance Specialist, through Richard O. Weible, AD/CVD Operations Office 7 Director, to Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Import Administration, regarding Adequacy Determination: Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Seamless Standard Line, and Pressure Pipe from Germany, dated July 21, 2006. No other respondent interested parties submitted responses. As a result of the timely filed, substantive responses from domestic interested parties, and the inadequacy of the substantive response for Germany (the sole substantive response from a respondent interested party in these sunset reviews), the Department conducted expedited sunset reviews of these orders, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2). Scope of the Orders The products covered by the orders are seamless carbon and alloy (other than stainless) steel standard, line, and pressure pipes and redraw hollows produced, or equivalent, to the ASTM A–53, ASTM A–106, ASTM A–333, ASTM A–334, ASTM A–335, ASTM A– 589, ASTM A–795, and the API 5L specifications and meeting the physical parameters described below, regardless of application. The scope of the orders also includes all products used in standard, line, or pressure pipe E:\FR\FM\06OCN1.SGM 06OCN1

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce

and (202) 482-6478, respectively.

Background

    On April 10, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published the preliminary results of the

[[Page 59079]]

administrative review of the antidumping duty order on pure magnesium 
from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). See Pure Magnesium from 
the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review, 71 FR 18067 (April 10, 2006) (``Preliminary 
Results''). In the Preliminary Results, we stated that we would issue 
our final results of review no later than 120 days after the date of 
publication of the preliminary results (i.e., August 8, 2006). On July 
31, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice 
extending the time limit for the final results of the administrative 
review from August 8, 2006, to September 7, 2006. See Notice of 
Extension of Final Result of the 2004-2005 Administrative Review of 
Pure Magnesium from the People's Republic of China, 71 FR 43110 (July 
31, 2006). Additionally, on September 12, 2006, the Department 
published a notice extending the time limit for the final results of 
review until September 29, 2006. See Notice of Extension of Final 
Results of the 2004-2005 Administrative Review of Pure Magnesium from 
the People's Republic of China, 71 FR 53662 (September 12, 2006). The 
final results of review are currently due no later than September 29, 
2006.

Extension of Time Limit for Final Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue the final results in an 
administrative review within 120 days of publication date of the 
preliminary results. However, if it is not practicable to complete the 
review within this time period, the Department may extend the time 
limit for the final results to 180 days. Completion of the final 
results within the 120-day period is not practicable because this 
review involves certain complex issues involving valuation of various 
factors of production.
    Therefore, we are fully extending the time period for issuing the 
final results of review to 180 days until October 7, 2006, in 
accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. However, because 
October 7, 2006, falls on a Saturday, and the next business day October 
9, 2006 is a federal holiday, the final results will be due on October 
10, 2006, the next business day. This notice is published pursuant to 
sections 751(a) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: September 28, 2006.
