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. See 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). The Department has determined that the review is extraordinarily complicated as the Department must gather additional publicly available information on surrogate values to use for a highly complex and technical process involving specialized inputs, evaluate the complex corporate structures of both respondents, issue additional supplemental questionnaires, and conduct verifications of both respondents. Based on the timing of the case and the additional information that must be gathered and verified, the preliminary results of this new shipper review cannot be completed within the statutory time limit of 180 days. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for the completion of the preliminary results of the new shipper reviews of Shanghai Jinneng and Jiangxi Guangyuan by 120 days from the original January 14, 2007, deadline.

Antidumping Duty Reviews: Silicon Metal from the People's Republic of 
China

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

EFFECTIVE DATE: December 21, 2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Scot Fullerton or Mike Quigley, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Department received timely requests from Shanghai Jinneng 
International Trade Co., Ltd. (``Shanghai Jinneng'') and Jiangxi 
Gangyuan Silicon Industry Co., Ltd. (``Jiangxi Gangyuan'') in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(c) for new shipper reviews of the 
antidumping duty order on silicon metal from the People's Republic of 
China. On July 25, 2006, the Department found that the requests for 
review with respect to Shanghai Jinneng and Jiangxi Guangyuan 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 June 1, 2005, through May 30, 2006. See Silicon Metal From the 
People's Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper 
Reviews, 71 FR 42084 (July 25, 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. See 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2).
    The Department has determined that the review is extraordinarily 
complicated as the Department must gather additional publicly available 
information on surrogate values to use for a highly complex and 
technical process involving specialized inputs, evaluate the complex 
corporate structures of both respondents, issue additional supplemental 
questionnaires, and conduct verifications of both respondents. Based on 
the timing of the case and the additional information that must be 
gathered and verified, the preliminary results of this new shipper 
review cannot be completed within the statutory time limit of 180 days. 
Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for the 
completion of the preliminary results of the new shipper reviews of 
Shanghai Jinneng and Jiangxi Guangyuan by 120 days from the original 
January 14, 2007, deadline. The preliminary results for both new 
shipper reviews will now be due May 14, 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.
    This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: December 14, 2006.
