SUMMARY: In response to requests from interested parties, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). The period of review (‘‘POR’’) for this administrative review is June 24, 2004, through December 31, 2005. This administrative review covers multiple producers/exporters of the subject merchandise, five of which are being individually investigated as mandatory respondents. The Department is also conducting new shipper reviews for two exporters/producers. The POR for the new shipper reviews is also June 24, 2004, through December 31, 2005. We preliminarily determine that all five mandatory respondents in the administrative review made sales in the United States at prices below normal value. With respect to the remaining respondents in the administrative review (herein after collectively referred to as the Separate Rate Applicants), we preliminarily determine that 39 entities have provided sufficient evidence that they are separate from the state– controlled entity, and we have established a weighted–average margin based on the rates we have calculated for the five mandatory respondents, excluding any rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on adverse facts available to be applied to theses AGENCY: E:\FR\FM\09FEN1.SGM 09FEN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Postponement of Final Determination

    On July 13, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
initiated the antidumping duty investigation of certain polyester 
staple fiber from the People's Republic of China. See Initiation of 
Antidumping Duty Investigation: Certain Polyester Staple Fiber from the 
People's Republic of China, 71 FR 41201 (July 20, 2006) (``Initiation 
Notice''). On December 26, 2006, the Department published the 
Preliminary Determination in the antidumping duty investigation of 
certain polyester staple fiber from the People's Republic of China. See 
Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Partial 
Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances: Certain Polyester 
Staple Fiber from the People's Republic of China, 71 FR 77373 (December 
26, 2006) (``Preliminary Determination''). The Preliminary 
Determination stated that the Department would make its final 
determination for this antidumping duty investigation no later than 75 
days after the date of publication of the preliminary determination 
(i.e., March 11, 2007).
    Section 735(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (``the Act'') provides 
that a final determination may be postponed until not later than 135 
days after the date of the publication of the preliminary determination 
if, in the event of an affirmative determination, a request for such 
postponement is made by exporters who account for a significant 
proportion of exports of the subject merchandise, or in the event of a 
negative preliminary determination, a request for such postponement is 
made by petitioner. In addition, the Department's regulations, at 19 
CFR 351.210(e)(2), require that requests by respondents for 
postponement of a final determination be accompanied by a request for 
extension of provisional measures from a four-month period to not more 
than six months. See 19 CFR 351.210(e)(2).
    On January 10, 2007, several respondents\1\ requested a 30-day 
extension of the final determination and extension of the provisional 
measures.\2\ Thus, because our preliminary determination is 
affirmative, and the respondents requesting an extension of the final 
determination, and an extension of the provisional measures, account 
for a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise, and 
no compelling reasons for denial exist, we are extending the due date 
for the final determination by 30 days. For the reasons identified 
above, we are postponing the final determination until April 10, 2007.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ These respondents are: Cixi Jiangnan Chemical Fiber Co., 
Ltd., Ningbo Dafa Chemical Fiber Co., Ltd., Cixi Sansheng Chemical 
Fiber Co., Ltd., Cixi Santai Chemical Fiber Co., Ltd., Hangzhou 
Sanxin Paper Co., Ltd., Suzhou PolyFiber Co., Ltd., Zhaoqing Tifo 
New Fiber Co., Ltd., Nantong Luolai Chemical Fiber Co. Ltd., 
Zhejiang Waysun Chemical Fiber Co., Ltd. and Cixi Waysun Chemical 
Fiber Co., Ltd.
    \2\ On January 12, 2007, Far Eastern Industries (Shanghai) Ltd. 
requested a 30 day extension of the final determination, but did not 
request an extension of the provisional measures.
