SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Department received timely requests from Nanjing Merry, Leping Lotai, Weishan Hongrun, and Shanghai Strong in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(c) for new shipper reviews of the antidumping duty order on freshwater crawfish tail meat from the PRC. On May 5, 2006, the Department found that the requests for review with respect to Nanjing Merry, Leping Lotai, and Weishan Hongrun met all of the regulatory requirements set forth in 19 CFR 351.214(b) and initiated these new shipper antidumping duty reviews covering the period September 1, 2005, through February 28, 2006. See Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat From the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 71 FR 26453 (May 5, 2006). On May 31, 2006, the Department found that the request for review with respect to Shanghai Strong met all of the regulatory requirements set forth in 19 CFR 351.214(b) and initiated a new shipper antidumping duty review covering the period September 1, 2005, through February 28, 2006. See Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat From the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 71 FR 30866 (May 31, 2006). Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) require the Department to issue the preliminary results of a new shipper review within 180 days after the date on which the new shipper review was initiated and final results of a 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 preliminary results of a new shipper review to 300 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated (19 CFR 351.214 (i)(2)). The Department has determined that the review is extraordinarily complicated as the Department must gather additional publicly available information, issue additional supplemental questionnaires, and conduct verifications of the four respondents. Based on the timing of the case and the additional information that must be gathered and verified, the preliminary results of this new shipper review cannot be completed within the E:\FR\FM\11OCN1.SGM 11OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 196 / Wednesday, October 11, 2006 / Notices statutory time limit of 180 days.

Additionally, the Department is extending the time limit for the completion of the preliminary results of the new shipper review of Shanghai Strong by 65 days from the original November 19, 2006, deadline. The preliminary results for all four new shipper reviews will now be due January 23, 2007, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). The final results will, in turn, be due 90 days after the date of issuance of the preliminary results, unless extended.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On September 15, 1998, the Department published in the Federal Register the antidumping duty order on SSWR from Korea. See Notice of Amendment of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Stainless Steel Wire Rod From Korea, 63 FR 49331 (September 15, 1998) (‘‘Amended Final Determination’’) and Stainless Steel Wire Rod From Korea: Amendment of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value Pursuant to Court Decision, 66 FR 41550 (August 8, 2001) (‘‘Amended Final Determination Pursuant to Court Decision’’).2 In September 2005, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of ‘‘Opportunity to Request Administrative Review’’ of the antidumping duty order on SSWR from Korea. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 70 FR 52072 ( September 1, 2005). On September 30, 2005, in accordance with 19 CFR § 351.213(b)(1), the Domestic Interested Parties requested that the Department conduct a review of Changwon and Dongbang Special Steel Co., Ltd. (‘‘Dongbang’’), and any of their affiliates (collectively, as a collapsed entity, the ‘‘Respondents’’ or ‘‘Changwon/Dongbang’’) for the period 2 In the Amended Final Determination Pursuant To Court Decision, the Department reclassified Changwon Specialty Steel Co., Ltd.’s (‘‘Changwon’’) U.S. sales as constructed export price (‘‘CEP’’) sales and recalculated the dumping margin for the collapsed entity which included Changwon. As a result of the recalculation, the ‘‘all others’’ rate also changed. See Amended Final Determination Pursuant To Court Decision, 66 FR at 41550.

In October 2005, the Department initiated an administrative review of the Respondents. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 70 FR 61601 (October 25, 2005). Also in October, the Department issued its antidumping questionnaire to the Respondents, and in December 2005, the Respondents responded to this questionnaire. Thereafter, the Department issued supplemental questionnaires to the Respondents - to which the Department received timely responses- and the Domestic Interested Parties submitted comments regarding the Respondents’ questionnaire and supplemental questionnaire responses. In May 2006, the Department extended the deadline for issuing the preliminary results in this administrative review until October 2, 2006. See Stainless Steel Wire Rod from the Republic of Korea: Notice of Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 30658 (May 30, 2006). The Department is conducting this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’). Collapsing of Respondents In the less–than-fair value (‘‘LTFV’’) investigation in this proceeding, the Department determined that Pohang Iron and Steel Co., Ltd. (‘‘POSCO’’), and its subsidiary, Changwon, were affiliated with Dongbang through a close supplier relationship and that all three companies should be treated as one entity (collapsed). See Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less than Fair Value: Stainless Steel Wire Rod from Korea, 63 FR 40404, 40408 (July 29, 1998) (‘‘Final Determination’’) (Comment 2). The Department found a close supplier relationship between POSCO/Changwon and Dongbang based on the fact that Dongbang, whose operations were almost exclusively dependent upon finishing unfinished SSWR (also known as black coil), was not able to obtain suitable black coil from sources other than POSCO/ Changwon. See Memorandum from the Team to Holly Kuga regarding: ‘‘Whether Pohang Iron and Steel Co., Ltd. (POSCO), and its subsidiary Changwon Specialty Steel Co., Ltd. (Changwon), are affiliated with Dongbang Special Steel Co., Ltd. (Dongbang). Whether to collapse Dongbang with the already collapsed E:\FR\FM\11OCN1.SGM 11OCN1

CFR 351.214 (i)(2)).
    The Department has determined that the review is extraordinarily 
complicated as the Department must gather additional publicly available 
information, issue additional supplemental questionnaires, and conduct 
verifications of the four respondents. Based on the timing of the case 
and the additional information that must be gathered and verified, the
