See Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat From the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 71 FR 30866 (May 31, 2006). Background The Department received timely requests from Nanjing Merry, Leping Lotai, Weishan Hongrun, and Shanghai Strong in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(c) for new shipper reviews of the antidumping duty order on freshwater crawfish tail meat from the PRC. On May 5, 2006, the Department found that the requests for review with respect to Nanjing Merry, Leping Lotai, and Weishan Hongrun met all of the regulatory requirements set forth in 19 CFR 351.214(b) and initiated these new shipper antidumping duty reviews covering the period September 1, 2005, through February 28, 2006. See Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat From the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 71 FR 26453 (May 5, 2006). Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary 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 preliminary results of a new shipper review within 180 days after the date on which the new shipper review was initiated and final results of a review within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results were issued. The Department may, however, extend the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of a new shipper review to 300 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated (19 CFR 351.214 (i)(2)). The Department already determined that the reviews are extraordinarily complicated in its initial notice extending the deadline for the preliminary results of these reviews where it extended the deadline for the preliminary results until January 23, 2007. See Notice of Extension of the Preliminary Results of New Shipper Antidumping Duty Reviews: Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat from the People’s Republic of China, 71 FR 59738 (October 11, 2006). The Department, however, finds that it requires additional information from respondents for purposes of the preliminary results. Based on the timing of the case and the additional information that must be gathered and verified, the preliminary results of these new shipper reviews cannot be completed within the statutory time limit of 180 days. Accordingly, the Department is further extending the time limit for the completion of the preliminary results of the new shipper reviews of Nanjing Merry, Leping Lotai, Weishan Hongrun, and Shanghai Strong by 30 days from the January 23, 2007 deadline. The preliminary results for all four new shipper reviews will now be due February 22, 2007 in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). The final results will, in turn, be due 90 days after the date of issuance of the preliminary results, unless extended.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 16, 2004, the Department published in the Federal Register the final results of the 2002–2003 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on sebacic acid from the PRC. See Sebacic Acid From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 69 FR 75303 (‘‘Final Results’’). In that review, the Department relied on Monthly Statistics of the Foreign Trade of India (MSFTI) for the period of review (‘‘POR’’) to mstockstill on PROD1PC61 with NOTICES AGENCY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:47 Dec 14, 2006 Jkt 211001 value sebacic acid, a surrogate value used to allocate the respondent’s reported inputs between the production of the subject merchandise, sebacic acid, and non–subject merchandise. Additionally, in that review the Department deducted the by–product offset from normal value. The respondent in the 2002–2003 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on sebacic acid from the PRC filed a complaint with the CIT contesting both the surrogate value assigned to sebacic acid and the location of the deduction of the by–product offset in the Final Results. The Department filed a motion with the CIT for a voluntary remand with respect to the application of the by–product offset. On January 25, 2006, the CIT remanded this case to the Department to re– evaluate the surrogate value selected to value sebacic acid and granted the Department’s request for a voluntary remand with respect to the application of the by–product offset. On May 3, 2006, the Department issued its final results of remand redetermination on the surrogate value selected to value sebacic acid and its voluntary redetermination to further explain its application of the by–product offset. In its redetermination, the Department concluded that it was appropriate to value sebacic acid using MSFTI data after removing aberrational amounts (‘‘MSFTI data’’), rather than the Chemical Weekly ChemImpEx database (‘‘ChemImpEx’’) as suggested by the respondent. The Department reached this conclusion because, unlike the ChemImpEx data, the MSFTI data is official government data and had a greater variety of data points. On September 18, 2006, the CIT affirmed the Department’s remand redetermination. See Guangdong Chemicals Import & Export Corporation v. United States, Ct. No. 05–00023 Slip Op. 06–142 (September 18, 2006). Consistent with the decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Timken Company v. United States and China National Machinery and Equipment Import and Export Corporation, 893 F. 2d 337 (Fed. Cir. 1990) (‘‘Timken’’), on October 4, 2006, the Department published a notice announcing that the CIT’s decision was not in harmony with the Department’s determination in the 2002–2003 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on sebacic acid from the PRC. No party appealed the CIT’s decision. Therefore, there is now a final and conclusive court decision in this case. PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Amended Final Results of Review As the litigation in this case has concluded, the Department is amending the Final Results. The dumping margins in the amended final results of review are as follows: Exporter/Manufacturer Margin (percent) Guangdong Chemicals Import and Export Corporation ........... 19.82 The PRC–wide rate continues to be 243.40 percent. Assessment The Department intends to issue assessment instruction to U.S. Customs and Border Protection 15 days after the date of publication of these amended final results of review. This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended. Dated: December 8, 2006. David M.

Notice of Extension of the Preliminary Results of New Shipper 
Antidumping Duty Reviews: Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat from the 
People's Republic of China

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (``Department'') is conducting new 
shipper antidumping duty reviews of freshwater crawfish tail meat from 
the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') in response to requests by 
Nanjing Merry Trading Co., Ltd. (``Nanjing Merry''), Leping Lotai Foods 
Co., Ltd. (``Leping Lotai''), Weishan Hongrun Aquatic Co., Ltd. 
(``Weishan Hongrun''), and Shanghai Strong International Trading Co., 
Ltd. (``Shanghai Strong''). These reviews cover shipments to the United 
States for the period September 1, 2005, to February 28, 2006, by these 
four respondents. For the reasons discussed below, we are further 
extending the preliminary results of the new shipper reviews of Nanjing 
Merry, Leping Lotai, Weishan Hongrun, and Shanghai Strong by an 
additional 30 days, to no later than February 22, 2007.

EFFECTIVE DATE: December 15, 2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Erin Begnal or Scot Fullerton, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-
1442 and (202) 482-1386, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Department received timely requests from Nanjing Merry, Leping 
Lotai, Weishan Hongrun, and Shanghai Strong in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.214(c) for new shipper reviews of the antidumping duty order on 
freshwater crawfish tail meat from the PRC. On May 5, 2006, the 
Department found that the requests for review with respect to Nanjing 
Merry, Leping Lotai, and Weishan Hongrun met all of the regulatory 
requirements set forth in 19 CFR 351.214(b) and initiated these new 
shipper antidumping duty reviews covering the period September 1, 2005, 
through February 28, 2006. See Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat From the 
People's Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper 
Reviews, 71 FR 26453 (May 5, 2006).
    On May 31, 2006, the Department found that the request for review 
with respect to Shanghai Strong met all of the regulatory requirements 
set forth in 19 CFR 351.214(b) and initiated a new shipper antidumping 
duty review covering the period September 1, 2005, through February 28, 
2006. See Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat From the People's Republic of 
China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 71 FR 30866 
(May 31, 2006).

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary 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 
preliminary results of a new shipper review within 180 days after the 
date on which the new shipper review was initiated and final results of 
a review within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results 
were issued. The Department may, however, extend the deadline for 
completion of the preliminary results of a new shipper review to 300 
days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated (19 
CFR 351.214 (i)(2)).
    The Department already determined that the reviews are 
extraordinarily complicated in its initial notice extending the 
deadline for the preliminary results of these reviews where it extended 
the deadline for the preliminary results until January 23, 2007. See 
Notice of Extension of the Preliminary Results of New Shipper 
Antidumping Duty Reviews: Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat from the 
People's Republic of China, 71 FR 59738 (October 11, 2006). The 
Department, however, finds that it requires additional information from 
respondents for purposes of the preliminary results. Based on the 
timing of the case and the additional information that must be gathered 
and verified, the preliminary results of these new shipper reviews 
cannot be completed within the statutory time limit of 180 days. 
Accordingly, the Department is further extending the time limit for the 
completion of the preliminary results of the new shipper reviews of 
Nanjing Merry, Leping Lotai, Weishan Hongrun, and Shanghai Strong by 30 
days from the January 23, 2007 deadline.
    The preliminary results for all four new shipper reviews will now 
be due February 22, 2007 in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). The final results will, in turn, be 
due 90 days after the date of issuance of the preliminary results, 
unless extended.
