Download as PDF 64244 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 211 / Wednesday, November 1, 2006 / Notices 2006, which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues which the respondent raised and to which we have responded is in the Decision Memo and attached to this notice as an Appendix. The Decision Memo, which is a public document, is on file in the Central Records Unit, main Commerce building, Room B–099, and is accessible on the Web at https://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/ index.html. The paper copy and electronic version of the Decision Memo are identical in content. Changes from the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of the comments we received from Asahi, we find that Asahi’s two home–market channels of distribution constitute one level of trade. Our analysis on the level of trade is discussed in detail in the Decision Memo. We made no other changes to our analysis. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Final Results of the Review As a result of our review, we determine that a margin of 0.00 percent exists for Asahi for the period August 1, 2004, through July 31, 2005. Assessment Rate The Department will determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. We intend to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of these final results of review. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we have calculated an importer–specific assessment rate of 0.00 percent. We will direct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries at this rate. See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. See Notice of Policy Concerning Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) (Assessment–Policy Notice). This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the period of review produced by Asahi for which Asahi did not know that the merchandise it sold to an intermediary (e.g., a reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the 91.74 percent all–others rate if there is no rate for the intermediary involved in the transaction. See the Assessment–Policy Notice for a full discussion of this clarification. Cash–Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:36 Oct 31, 2006 Jkt 211001 this notice of final results of the administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication, consistent with section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) the cash–deposit rate for Asahi will be 0.00 percent; (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 less–than-fair– value (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; (4) if neither the exporter nor the producer is a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the LTFV investigation, the cash– deposit rate shall be 91.74 percent, the all–others rate established in the LTFV investigation. See Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Granular Polytetrafluoroethylene Resin From Japan, 53 FR 25191 (July 5, 1988). These deposit requirements shall remain in effect until publication of the final results of the next administrative review. This notice serves as a 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 the review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Statutory Time Limits Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department of Commerce (the Department) to complete the final results of an administrative review within 120 days after 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 time limit for the final results to 180 days from the date of publication of the preliminary results. Background On August 29, 2005, the Department published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain individually quick frozen red raspberries from Chile, covering the period July 1, 2004, through June 30, 2005. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 51009 (August 29, 2005).

Extension of Time Limits for Final Results The Department requires additional time to verify the cost information submitted by a respondent in this administrative review. Moreover, the Department requires additional time to analyze complex cost issues relating to direct material purchases. Thus, it is not practicable to complete this review within the original time limit (i.e., December 6, 2006). Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the final results of this administrative review until no later than February 4, 2007, which is 180 days from the date of publication of the preliminary results. However, February 4 falls on Sunday, and it is the Department’s long–standing practice to issue a determination the next business day when the statutory deadline falls on a weekend, federal holiday, or any other day when the Department is closed. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ‘‘Next Business Day’’ Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). Accordingly, the deadline for completion of the final results is February 5, 2007. We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

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 an administrative review for the period February 1, 2005, through January 31, 2006, from Echjay Forgings Pvt. Ltd. (Echjay) and Shree Ganesh Forgings, Ltd. (Shree Ganesh). We also received requests for a new shipper review and, failing that, an administrative review, from Kunj Forgings Pvt. Ltd. (Kunj), Micro Forge (India) Ltd. (Micro), Pradeep Metals Limited (Pradeep), and Rollwell Forge, Ltd. (Rollwell). On April 5, 2006, we initiated administrative reviews of the six companies. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Administrative Reviews, 71 FR 17077 (April 5, 2006).1 The preliminary results of the administrative review are currently due no later than October 31, 2006. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results The Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), at section 351(a)(3)(A), provides that the Department will issue the preliminary results of an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act provides further that if the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days. 1 On April 6, 2006, the Department published a notice initiating new shipper reviews of Kunj, Micro, Pradeep, and Rollwell. See Stainless Steel Flanges from India: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 71 FR 17439 (April 6, 2006).

We require additional time to make a thorough analysis of these model types and to determine appropriate model match weighting criteria. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), the Department is extending the time limit for the preliminary results by 120 days to February 28, 2007.
