The Department received notices of intent to participate from the following domestic parties within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i): ABC Coke, Citizens Gas & Coke Utility, Erie Coke, Sloss Industries Corporation, and Tonawanda Coke Corporation (collectively, ‘‘Petitioners’’). These parties claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.102(b), as domestic manufacturers and producers of the domestic like product. The Department received a substantive response from Petitioners within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). The Department did not receive a substantive response from any of the respondent interested parties. As a result, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department conducted an expedited sunset review of the Order. Scope Of The Order The product covered under the antidumping duty order is coke larger than 100 mm (4 inches) in maximum diameter and at least 50 percent of which is retained on a 100–mm (4 inch) sieve, of a kind used in foundries. The foundry coke products subject to the antidumping duty order were classifiable under subheading 2704.00.00.10 (as of Jan 1, 2000) and are currently classifiable under subheading 2704.00.00.11 (as of July 1, 2000) of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and Customs purposes, our written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Additionally, the Department has issued one conclusive scope ruling regarding the merchandise covered by the Order. On February 18, 2003, the Department found that the particular foundry coke as defined by Shanxi and imported by Shook Group LLC and Dajin U.S. Trading, Inc.1, is within the scope of the Order.

Rather, Shook and Dajin challenged the application of an industry standard test, and whether the 50 percent condition of the test applied to the entire shipment or a portion of the shipment which was sold as being over 100 mm. We found that this issue was clearly addressed in the investigation at the Final Determination, wherein it was determined that the 50 percent condition applies only to that portion of the shipment sold as larger than 100 mm coke, and if at least 50 percent of such coke is VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:29 Dec 06, 2006 Jkt 211001 BILLING CODE 3510–DS–S 101.62 105.91 75.58 48.55 214.89 % % % % % DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE International Trade Administration [A–570–875] Non–Malleable Cast Iron Pipe Fittings from the Peoples’ Republic of China; Notice of Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce.

No other party in this case requested an administrative review. On July 27, 2006, the Department initiated an administrative review of Kohap, Ltd.

In response to petitioners’ withdrawal of their request for an administrative review, and because the request was timely withdrawn, the Department hereby rescinds the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on PET film from South Korea for the period June 1, 2005, through May 31, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 31, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on non-malleable cast iron pipe fittings from 
the Peoples' Republic of China (``PRC''). See Initiation of Antidumping 
and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for 
Revocation in Part, 71 FR 30864 (May 31, 2006). The period of review is 
April 1, 2005, through March 31, 2006. The preliminary results of this 
administrative review are currently due no later than January 2, 2007.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``Act''), the Department shall make a preliminary 
determination in an administrative review of an antidumping order 
within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date 
of publication of the order. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act further 
provides, however, that the Department may extend the 245-day period to 
365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review 
within the foregoing time period. The Department determines that it is 
not practicable to complete this administrative review within the time 
limits mandated by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act because this review 
involves examining a number of complex issues related to factors of 
production and surrogate values. The Department requires additional 
time to issue and analyze supplemental questionnaires regarding these 
issues. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, 
the Department is extending the time period for completing the 
preliminary results of this administrative review until April 30, 2007, 
which is 365 days from the last day of the anniversary month of the 
date of publication of the order. The deadline for the final results of 
the review continues to be 120 days after the publication of the 
preliminary results.
    This extension notice is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.
