SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 31, 2006, the Department published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of brake rotors from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’), covering the period April 1, 2005, through March 31, 2006. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 30864 (May 31, 2006). This administrative review covers 16 firms. However, due to the large number of firms subject to this administrative review, and the Department’s experience regarding the administrative burden to review each company for which a request has been made, the Department exercised its authority to limit the number of respondents selected for individual review.

The following respondents were selected for individual review: Longkou Haimeng Machinery Co., Ltd. (‘‘Haimeng’’), Yantai Winhere Auto–Part Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (‘‘Winhere’’), and Qingdao Meita Automotive Industry Co., Ltd. (‘‘Meita’’). See Selection Memo. On May 30, 2006, the Department published a notice of initiation of new shipper review of brake rotors from the PRC covering the period April 1, 2005, through March 31, 2006. See Brake Rotors from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of New Shipper Review, 71 FR 30655 (May 30, 2006). On October 2, 2006, the Department received a letter from counsel to Qingdao Golrich Autoparts Co., Ltd. (‘‘Golrich’’), agreeing to waive the new shipper review time limits in accordance with 19 CFR § 351.214(j)(3). Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR § 351.214(j)(3), on October 4, 2006, the Department acknowledged respondent’s waiver of the new shipper review time limits and aligned the new shipper review with the administrative review. See Department’s Memorandum to the File on the Alignment of 2005–2006 Administrative and New Shipper Reviews, dated October 4, 2006. The preliminary results are currently due by January 2, 2007. In November 2006, the Department conducted verifications of sales and factors of production (‘‘FOP’’) for the new shipper review and one of the three administrative review companies selected as mandatory respondents. Also, in November 2006, the Department conducted a separate–rate verification for one of the companies not selected as a mandatory respondent requesting its own separate–rate. Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of 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. The Department determines that completion of the preliminary results of these reviews within the statutory time E:\FR\FM\26DEN1.SGM 26DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 247 / Tuesday, December 26, 2006 / Notices period is not practicable, given the extraordinarily complicated nature of the proceeding. The 2005–2006 administrative and new shipper reviews cover four companies, and to conduct the sales and factor analyses for each requires the Department to gather and analyze a significant amount of information pertaining to each company’s sales practices and manufacturing methods. In addition, the Department must analyze the responses of thirteen separate–rate respondents to determine their eligibility for a separate–rate. Therefore, the Department requires more time to complete these analyses. Additionally, the Department requires additional time to analyze the verification findings of the three companies verified. Therefore, given the number and complexity of issues in this case, and in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 40 days to 285 days. Therefore, the preliminary results will be due no later than February 9, 2007. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.

SUMMARY: Based on the withdrawal of a request for review, the Department of Commerce is rescinding its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on Certain Hard Red Spring Wheat from Canada for the period October 1, 2004, through September 30, 2005. EFFECTIVE DATE: December 26, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On October 3, 2005, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published in the Federal Register the Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 70 FR 57558 (Oct. 3, 2005), for the above–cited segment of this antidumping duty proceeding. On October 31, 2005, the Department received a timely filed request for review from the Canadian Wheat Board. The Canadian Wheat Board also timely filed a request to defer for one year the initiation of the administrative review. The Department received no objections to this request from any party cited in 19 CFR 351.213(c)(1)(ii). On December 1, 2005, the Department published in the Federal Register the Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Administrative Reviews, 70 FR 72107 (Dec. 1, 2005), which granted the Canadian Wheat Board’s request for deferral of administrative review for one year. On November 27, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register the Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 68535 (Nov. 27, 2006), in which the Department automatically initiated the above–referenced deferred administrative review of Certain Hard Red Spring Wheat from Canada. On December 6, 2006, we received a timely filed submission from the Canadian Wheat Board withdrawing its request for an administrative review. Rescission of Antidumping Administrative Review The Canadian Wheat Board filed its withdrawal request within the deadline established by section 351.213(d)(1) of the Department’s regulations. No other parties have requested a review of the Canadian Wheat Board or any other producer or exporter of the subject merchandise. Therefore, we are rescinding the above–cited administrative review in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the company for which this review is rescinded, PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 77371 antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP within 41 days of publication of this notice. Cash Deposit Rates The Department has revoked the antidumping and countervailing duty orders on Certain Hard Red Spring Wheat from Canada. See Antidumping Duty Investigation and Countervailing Duty Investigation of Hard Red Spring Wheat from Canada: Notice of Panel Decision, Revocation of Countervailing and Antidumping Duty Orders and Termination of Suspension of Liquidation, 71 FR 8275 (Feb. 16, 2006). The effective date of the revocation is January 2, 2006. Therefore, the CBP has been directed to terminate the suspension of liquidation for all shipments of Certain Hard Red Spring Wheat from Canada entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after January 2, 2006. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. Notification Regarding APOs This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (‘‘APOs’’) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction. This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 777(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). E:\FR\FM\26DEN1.SGM 26DEN1

Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation 
in Part, 71 FR 30864 (May 31, 2006). This administrative review covers 
16 firms. However, due to the large number of firms subject to this 
administrative review, and the Department's experience regarding the 
administrative burden to review each company for which a request has 
been made, the Department exercised its authority to limit the number 
of respondents selected for individual review. See Section 777(A)(c) of

to Wendy Frankel from Blanche Ziv regarding the Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review of Brake Rotors from the People's Republic of 
China: Selection of Respondents (``Selection Memo''), dated August 18,

    The following respondents were selected for individual review: 
Longkou Haimeng Machinery Co., Ltd. (``Haimeng''), Yantai Winhere Auto-
Part Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (``Winhere''), and Qingdao Meita 
Automotive Industry Co., Ltd. (``Meita''). See Selection Memo. On May

Republic of China: Initiation of New Shipper Review, 71 FR 30655 (May

    On October 2, 2006, the Department received a letter from counsel 
to Qingdao Golrich Autoparts Co., Ltd. (``Golrich''), agreeing to waive 
the new shipper review time limits in accordance with 19 CFR Sec.  
351.214(j)(3). Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR Sec.  
351.214(j)(3), on October 4, 2006, the Department acknowledged 
respondent's waiver of the new shipper review time limits and aligned 
the new shipper review with the administrative review. See Department's 
Memorandum to the File on the Alignment of 2005-2006 Administrative and 
New Shipper Reviews, dated October 4, 2006. The preliminary results are 
currently due by January 2, 2007.
    In November 2006, the Department conducted verifications of sales 
and factors of production (``FOP'') for the new shipper review and one 
of the three administrative review companies selected as mandatory 
respondents. Also, in November 2006, the Department conducted a 
separate-rate verification for one of the companies not selected as a 
mandatory respondent requesting its own separate-rate.

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of 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.
    The Department determines that completion of the preliminary 
results of these reviews within the statutory time

period is not practicable, given the extraordinarily complicated nature 
of the proceeding. The 2005-2006 administrative and new shipper reviews 
cover four companies, and to conduct the sales and factor analyses for 
each requires the Department to gather and analyze a significant amount 
of information pertaining to each company's sales practices and 
manufacturing methods. In addition, the Department must analyze the 
responses of thirteen separate-rate respondents to determine their 
eligibility for a separate-rate. Therefore, the Department requires 
more time to complete these analyses. Additionally, the Department 
requires additional time to analyze the verification findings of the 
three companies verified.
    Therefore, given the number and complexity of issues in this case, 
and in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of 
the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary 
results of review by 40 days to 285 days. Therefore, the preliminary 
results will be due no later than February 9, 2007. The final results 
continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary 
results.
