EFFECTIVE DATE: December 4, 2006. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elfi Blum, Nicholas Czajkowski, or Toni Page, AD/CVD Operations, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–0197, (202) 482– 1395, or (202) 482–1398, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to issue the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an antidumping duty order for which a review is requested and issue the final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 days and 180 days, respectively. Due to the complexity of the issues in this case, including the need to issue another supplemental questionnaire, it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the original time limit (i.e., December 1, 2006). Therefore, the Department is partially extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results to no later than March 15, 2007. We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. VerDate Aug<31>2005 C–533–825 Jkt 211001 On August 8, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of the administrative review of the countervailing duty order on polyethylene terephthalate (PET) film from India. See Notice of Preliminary Results and Rescission, in Part, of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review: Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and Strip from India, 71 FR 45037 (August 8, 2006). The current deadline for the final results of review is December 6, 2006. Extension of Time Limits for Final Results of Review Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to issue the final results of the review within 120 days after the date on which notice of the preliminary results were published in the Federal Register. 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. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the review within the original time frame due to the complex nature of the case. As this case involves a large number of programs under review, the Department needs additional time to review information gathered at verification and to give parties time to submit subsequent comments. Consequently, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department’s regulations, the Department is extending the deadline for completion of the final results of the administrative review by 60 days. As the 180th day falls on a Sunday, the final results will now be due no later than February 5, 2007. This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

publicly available in the Major Shipper Reports issued by Import 
Administration's Office of Textiles and Apparel (OTEXA). These reports 
include volume and value (US$) data according to the historical product

products that specific U.S. domestic producers have identified as being 
products they produce? If not, please explain why?
     Are there any other comments relating to products that you 
wish to provide?

Production Templates

     As part of the monitoring system, the Department of 
Commerce may find it necessary to develop production templates to 
assist it in its evaluation of textile and apparel imports from 
Vietnam. Development of these templates will require a detailed 
understanding of the production process associated with the products to 
be monitored. Once product categories have been selected, we will be, 
if necessary, soliciting information on these production templates.
     As part of this process, the Department would likely 
examine information from market economy countries that it believes are 
most similar to Vietnam. In this regard, what countries would be the 
most appropriate for the Department to examine? To your knowledge, what 
market economy countries have the most similar textile and apparel 
industries to Vietnam? Please explain.
     Are there any other comments with respect to production 
templates that you wish to provide?

[[Page 70366]]

Domestic Industry Information

     As part of its monitoring, the Department will examine a 
broad range of public information on the domestic textile and apparel 
industry (e.g., production, capacity utilization, employment). In your 
opinion, what information on the domestic industry should the 
Department examine as part of this process? Are there sources that you 
recommend for such information? Please identify and explain.
     The Department will also examine public information on the 
domestic textile and apparel market (e.g., demand, domestic prices, 
market share). In your opinion, what information on the domestic market 
should the Department examine as part of this process? Are there 
sources that you recommend for such information? Please identify and 
explain.
     Should the Department also examine global industry and 
market information? In your opinion, what information should the 
Department examine as part of this process? Are there sources that you 
recommend for such information? Please identify and explain.
     Is there any other industry or market information that you 
think should be examined as part of this process? Are there sources 
that you recommend for such information? Please identify and explain.
     How can the Department best ascertain the effects of 
shifts in the type of textile and apparel imports from Vietnam on the 
domestic textile and apparel industry?
     Please identify interested parties (e.g., producers, 
retailers, workers) who are, in your view, relevant to our examination 
of the domestic industry.
     Are there any other comments with respect to the domestic 
industry that you wish to provide?

Biannual Evaluation Process

     Every six months, for the duration of the monitoring 
program, the Department will evaluate the information it has compiled 
as part of this effort. What information do you think is most important 
for the Department to consider in its evaluation process?
     As part of the biannual process, should the Department 
also undertake intermittent, mid-term or staged analyses of import and 
market trends? If so, what should be the focus of this analysis?
     What advice do you have with respect to the consultative 
process with interested parties (e.g., industry, retailers, workers) to 
be undertaken as part of the biannual evaluation process? Should the 
Department hold hearings or conduct outreach as part of this process?
     Are there any other comments you wish to provide on the 
biannual evaluation process.

Public Dissemination of Information

     What information should be disseminated to the public as 
part of this process (e.g., import data, U.S. industry information)?
     Is there any information that you think should not be 
publicly disseminated (please note that the Department is prohibited 
from releasing business proprietary information to the public)? Please 
explain why.

Additional Comments

concerns that you wish the Department to be aware of as it develops 
this monitoring program?
