See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 42028 (July 21, 2005).

The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 120-day period to 180 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the final results of the administrative review of folding metal tables and chairs from the PRC within the 120-day period due to complex issues the parties have raised regarding the proper treatment of certain U.S. transactions. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for completion of the final results of this review to 144 days until December 1, 2006. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: November 3, 2006. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

[[Page 66309]]

Background

    On July 6, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published the preliminary results of the new shipper reviews of the 
antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture (``WBF'') from the 
People's Republic of China (``PRC''), covering the period June 24, 
2004, through June 30, 2005, and the following exporters: Shenyang 
Kunyu Wood Industry Co., Ltd., Dongguan Landmark Furniture Products 
Ltd., Meikangchi (Nantong) Furniture Company Ltd, and WBE Industries 
(Hui-Yang) Co., Ltd. See Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's 
Republic of China: Preliminary Results of 2004-2005 Semi-Annual New 
Shipper Reviews and Notice of Final Rescission of One New Shipper 
Review, 71 FR 38373 (July 6, 2006) (``Preliminary Results''). On 
September 27, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register a 
notice extending the time limit for the final results of the new 
shipper reviews from September 25, 2006, to November 9, 2006. See 
Notice of Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of New Shipper 
Reviews of Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic of 
China, 71 FR 56475 (September 27, 2006).

Extension of Time Limits for Final 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 final results of a new shipper review within 90 days after the date 
on which the preliminary results were issued. The Department may, 
however, extend the time period for completion of the final results of 
a new shipper review to 150 days if it determines that the case is 
extraordinarily complicated. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2).
    As a result of extraordinarily complicated issues raised in the 
review segment, specifically the multiple issues raised with regard to 
the calculation of the surrogate financial ratios based on the 
financial statements of seven surrogate companies, it is not 
practicable to complete these new shipper reviews within the current 
time limit. Accordingly, the Department is fully extending the time 
period for completion of the final results to 150 days, pursuant to 
section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(I)(2). 
Therefore, the final results are now due no later than November 24, 
2006.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
section 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: November 6, 2006.
