Download as PDF 7764 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 33 / Tuesday, February 20, 2007 / Notices of export were included in the calculation of brokerage and handing expenses. The Department recalculated the antidumping duty rate applicable to Huarong, and included the changes noted above. On January 9, 2007, the CIT sustained all aspects of the remand redetermination made by the Department pursuant to the CIT’s remand of the Final Results. In its decision in Timken, 893 F.2d at 341, the Federal Circuit held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department must publish a notice of a court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Department determination, and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ‘‘conclusive’’ court decision. The CIT’s decision in this case on January 9, 2007, constitutes a final decision of the court that is not in harmony with the Department’s Final Results. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken. Accordingly, the Department will continue the suspension of liquidation of the subject merchandise pending the expiration of the period of appeal or, if appealed, pending a final and conclusive court decision. In the event the CIT’s ruling is not appealed or, if appealed, upheld by the Federal Circuit, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to revise the cash deposit rates covering the subject merchandise. This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 516A(c)(1) of the Act. Dated: February 13, 2007. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 3, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published a notice of opportunity to request administrative review of 
the antidumping duty order on, inter alia, stainless steel sheet and 
strip in coils from Mexico. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty 
Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request 
Administrative Review, 71 FR 37890 (July 3, 2006). On July 31, 2006, 
the Department received a timely request from Allegheny Ludlum 
Corporation, United Auto Workers Local 3303, Zanesville Armco 
Independent Organization, Inc. and the United Steelworkers 
(collectively, petitioners) to conduct an administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on stainless steel sheet and strip in coils from 
Mexico. Also on July 31, 2006, the Department received a timely request 
from the respondent in this review, ThyssenKrupp Mexinox S.A. de C.V. 
(Mexinox S.A.) and Mexinox USA, Inc. (Mexinox USA) (collectively, 
Mexinox) for revocation of the antidumping order on stainless steel 
sheet and strip in coils from Mexico. On August 30, 2006, the 
Department published a notice of initiation of this administrative 
review, covering the period July 1, 2005, to June 30, 2006. See 
Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 51573 (August 30, 
2006). The preliminary results are currently due no later than April 2, 
2007.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to complete the preliminary results of an 
administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. However, 
if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time 
period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2) allow 
the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary results to 
a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an 
order for which a review is requested.
    The Department has determined it is not practicable to complete 
this review within the statutory time limit because further analysis is 
needed with respect to Mexinox's affiliated party transactions and its 
cost of production data used in the margin calculation programs. We 
require additional information from Mexinox in order to complete our 
analysis and will not have time to analyze this information prior to 
the current deadline for the preliminary results. Accordingly, the 
Department is extending the time limit for completion of the 
preliminary results of this administrative review until no later than 
July 31, 2007, which is 365 days from the last day of the anniversary 
month. We intend to issue the final results no later than 120 days 
after publication of the preliminary results notice.
    This extension is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: February 13, 2007.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
