The final results are currently due by February 26, 2007. Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department shall make a final determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary determination is published. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 120-day period to 180 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the final results of the administrative review of PRCBs from the PRC by February 26, 2007, due to complex issues related to the calculation of surrogate financial ratios. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for completion of the final results of this review to 180 days after publication of the Preliminary Results. Therefore, the final results are now due no later than March 12, 2007. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: February 26, 2007. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretaryfor Import Administration. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Statutory Time Limits Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) and section 351.214(i)(1) of the Department of Commerce’s (Department) regulations 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 the final results of review within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results were issued. However, if the Department determines that the issues are extraordinarily complicated, section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and section 351.214(i)(2) of the Department’s regulations allow the Department to extend the deadline for the preliminary results to up to 300 days after the date on which the new shipper review was initiated. Background On September 26, 2006, the Department published a notice of initiation of a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel bar from India for Ambica Steels Limited (Ambica), covering the period February 1, 2006 through July 31, 2006. See Stainless Steel Bar from India: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 71 FR 56105 (September 26, 2006). On January 24, 2007, the Department initiated a cost investigation of Ambica. The preliminary results for this review are currently due no later than March 19, 2007. Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act, the Department may extend the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of a new shipper review if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated. Because the Department needs additional time to evaluate Ambica’s recently submitted cost information, examine sales issues, such as product grade hierarchy, and to issue additional supplemental questionnaires, the Department has determined that this review is extraordinarily complicated, and the preliminary results of this new shipper review cannot be completed within the statutory time limit of 180 days. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and section 351.214(i)(2) of the regulations, the Department is extending the time limit for the completion of the preliminary PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 results by 120 days until no later than July 17, 2007.

Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars from Ukraine; Final Results of 
the Sunset Review of Antidumping Duty Order

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce
SUMMARY: On November 27, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published a notice of preliminary results of the full 
sunset review of the antidumping duty order on steel concrete 
reinforcing bars (``rebar'') from Ukraine pursuant to section 751(c) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). We provided 
interested parties an opportunity to comment on our preliminary 
results. We did not receive comments from either domestic or respondent 
interested parties. As a result of this review, the Department finds 
that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation 
or recurrence of dumping at the levels indicated in the ``Final Results 
of Review'' section of this notice.

EFFECTIVE DATE: March 5, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Audrey R. Twyman or Brandon Farlander, 
AD/CVD Operations, Office 1, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street & Constitution 
Avenue, NW, Washington, DC, 20230; telephone: 202-482-3534 and 202-482-
0182, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 27, 2006, the Department published in the Federal 
Register a notice of preliminary results of the full sunset review of 
the antidumping duty order on rebar from Ukraine, pursuant to section 
751(c) of the Act. See Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars from Ukraine; 
Preliminary Results of the Sunset Review of Antidumping Duty Order, 71 
FR 68543 (November 27,

[[Page 9733]]

2006) (``Preliminary Results''). In our Preliminary Results, we 
determined that revocation of the order would likely result in 
continuation or recurrence of dumping with a margin of 41.69 percent 
for the all others rate, including Mittal Steel Kryviy Rih and 
Krivorozhstal Steel Works. We did not receive a case brief on behalf of 
either domestic or respondent interested parties within the deadline 
specified in 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(i).

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by this order is all steel concrete reinforcing 
bars sold in straight lengths, currently classifiable in the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') under item numbers 
7214.20.00, 7228.30.8050, 7222.11.0050, 7222.30.0000, 7228.60.6000, 
7228.20.1000, or any other tariff item number. Specifically excluded 
are plain rounds (i.e., non-deformed or smooth bars) and rebar that has 
been further processed through bending or coating.
    HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs 
purposes. The written description of the scope of the order is 
dispositive.

Analysis of Comments Received

    The Department did not receive case briefs from either domestic or 
respondent interested parties. Therefore, we have not made any changes 
to our Preliminary Results.

Final Results of Review

    We determine that revocation of the antidumping duty order on rebar 
from Ukraine would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of 
dumping at the following weighted-average margin:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                               Weighted-Average Margin
     Manufacturers/Producers/Exporters                (Percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Kryviy Rih and ``Krivorozhstal'' Steel
 Works\1\.................................
------------------------------------------------------------------------
\1\ As of February 1, 2006, Ukraine graduated to market economy status.
  See Final Results of Inquiry Into Ukraine's Status as a Non-Market
  Economy Country, 71 FR 9520 (February 24, 2006). As a result, the
  Ukraine wide rate is now the All Others rate. Mittal Steel is
  considered part of the all others rate because a successor-in-interest
  determination has not been made. See, e.g., Cut-to-Length Carbon Steel
  Plate from Belgium, Brazil, Finland, Germany, Mexico, Poland, Romania,
  Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom and Carbon Steel Plate from
  Taiwan; Second Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews of Antidumping Duty Orders
  and Antidumping Finding; Final Results, 71 FR 11577, 11579 (March 8,
  2006) (explaining that Duferco is subject to the all others rate
  because the Department had not yet conducted a changed circumstances
  review to determine the successor-in-interest to Forges de Clabecq,
  S.A.).

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely notification of return/
destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order 
is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the 
terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(c), 752(c), and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
