Non-Malleable Cast Iron Pipe Fittings from the People's Republic of China: Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 63285 [E6-18178]

Download as PDF sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 209 / Monday, October 30, 2006 / Notices 351.214(d)(1), and based on information on the record, we are initiating new shipper reviews for Anhui Tongxin, Huoshan NTGF, Jingdezhen Garay, and Shanghai Now Again. See Memoranda to the File through James C. Doyle, New Shipper Initiation Checklists, (October 23, 2006). We intend to issue the preliminary results of this review not later than 180 days after the date on which this review was initiated, and the final results of this review within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results were issued. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(A), the POR for a new shipper review, initiated in the month immediately following the annual anniversary month, will be the one year period immediately preceding the annual anniversary month. Therefore, the POR for the new shipper reviews of Anhui Tongxin, Huoshan NTGF, Jingdezhen Garay, and Shanghai Now Again will be September 1, 2005, through August 31, 2006. It is the Department’s usual practice in cases involving non–market economies to require that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the country–wide rate provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of government control over the company’s export activities. Accordingly, we will issue questionnaires to Anhui Tongxin, Huoshan NTGF, Jingdezhen Garay, and Shanghai Now Again, including a separate rates section. The reviews will proceed if the responses provide sufficient indication that Anhui Tongxin, Huoshan NTGF, Jingdezhen Garay, and Shanghai Now Again are not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to their exports of freshwater crawfish tail meat. However, if the exporter does not demonstrate the company’s eligibility for a separate rate, then the company will be deemed not separate from the PRC–wide entity, which exported during the POI. An exporter unable to demonstrate the company’s eligibility for a separate rate would hence not meet the requirements of section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and its new shipper review will be rescinded.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 25, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register 
its preliminary results of the second administrative review on non-
malleable cast iron pipe fittings from the People's Republic of China 
(``PRC''). See Non-Malleable Cast Iron Pipe Fittings from the People's 
Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review, 71 FR 30116 (May 25, 2006) (``Preliminary 
Results''). On September 12, 2006, the Department published in the 
Federal Register a notice extending the time limit for the final 
results of the administrative review from September 22, 2006, to 
October 23, 2006. See Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results of 
the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Non-Malleable Cast Iron 
Pipe Fittings from the People's Republic of China, 71 FR 53661 
(September 12, 2006). The final results of this administrative review 
are currently due no later than October 23, 2006.

Extension of Time Limit of Final Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue final results within 120 days 
of the date on which the preliminary results are published. 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 
extend the 120-day period to a maximum of 180 days. Completion of the 
final results of this review within the 120-day period is not 
practicable because the Department needs additional time to evaluate 
the arguments and issues raised by the petitioners and respondents in 
their respective case briefs and rebuttal briefs.
    Because it is not practicable to complete this review within the 
time specified under the Act, we are extending the time period for 
issuing the final results of review an additional 19 days to 169 days, 
in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Therefore, the 
final results will be due no later than November 10, 2006. This notice 
is published pursuant to sections 751(a) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: October 19, 2006.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
