The interest on a reparation award will accrue from the date payment or remittance would have been due under the P&S Act. The interest will continue accruing at the same rate, compounded annually, until full payment is made. For example, if an Order issued October 2, 2006, awarded $800 for one transaction in which payment was due on June 30, 2006, then the Order would start interest accrual on the award as of June 30, 2006, and continue accruing the interest until the person subject to the Order makes full payment, including interest. The rate of interest used to calculate the accrual in this example would be 4.9 percent, since the weekly average 1-year constant maturity Treasury yield for the calendar week prior to October 2, 2006, reported by the Federal Reserve as of September 29, 2006, was 4.9 percent. If the reparation involves more than one transaction, the interest on the reparation award will accrue from the date payment or remittance is due under the P&S Act for the last transaction on which the award is calculated. The interest will continue accruing at the same rate, compounded annually, until the person subject to the Order makes full payment. For example, if an Order issued October 2, 2006, awarded $1500 for three transactions in which payment was due on June 15, June 30, and July 15, 2006, respectively, the Order would start interest accrual on the award on July 15, 2006, and continue accruing the interest until full payment, including interest, is made. The rate of interest used to calculate the accrual in this instance would be 4.9 percent, since the weekly average 1-year constant maturity Treasury yield for the calendar week prior to October 2, 2006, reported by the Federal Reserve as of September 29, 2006, was 4.9 percent. Beginning interest accrual when payment is due under the P&S Act accomplishes several goals. It consistently enforces the payment requirements of the P&S Act and regulations and it discourages violations of the P&S Act that are subject to the reparations process. It also encourages the parties to resolve complaints early in the reparations process, and compensates the injured party for delays in payment from the date payments were originally due.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary 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 preliminary determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 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 preliminary results of the administrative review of folding metal tables and chairs from the PRC within this time limit.

We also preliminarily determine that Shree Ganesh had no entries of subject merchandise during the POR. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. Parties who submit argument in these proceedings are requested to submit with the argument (1) a statement of the issues and (2) a brief summary of the argument. EFFECTIVE DATE: March 7, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Background On February 9, 1994, the Department published the antidumping duty order on stainless steel flanges from India. See Amended Final Determination and Antidumping Duty Order; Certain Forged Stainless Steel Flanges from India, 59 FR 5994 (February 9, 1994) (Amended Final Determination). On February 1, 2006, the Department published the Notice of Opportunity to Request Administrative Review for this order covering the POR. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 71 FR 5239 (February 1, 2006). On February 28, 2006, we received requests for an administrative review for the period February 1, 2005, through January 31, 2006, from Echjay and Shree Ganesh. We also received requests for a new shipper review and, failing that, an administrative review,1 from Kunj 1 On April 6, 2006, the Department published a notice initiating new shipper reviews of Kunj, Micro, Pradeep, and Rollwell. See Stainless Steel Flanges from India: Notice of of Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 71 FR 17439 (April 6, 2006). On September 29, 2006, we rescinded the new shipper reviews with respect to Micro, Pradeep, and Rollwell. See Certain Forged Stainless Steel Flanges from India: Notice of Partial PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Forgings Pvt. Ltd. (Kunj), Micro Forge (India) Ltd. (Micro), Pradeep Metals Limited (Pradeep), and Rollwell Forge, Ltd. (Rollwell). On April 5, 2006, we initiated administrative reviews of the six companies. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Administrative Reviews, 71 FR 17077 (April 5, 2006). On November 1, 2006, we extended the time limit for the preliminary results of this administrative review to February 28, 2007. See Notice of Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Forged Stainless Steel Flanges from India, 71 FR 64245 (November 1, 2006). Echjay On April 5, 2006, the Department issued its initial questionnaire to Echjay. Echjay submitted its section A response on May 8, 2006, and its section B and C responses on May 30, 2006. The Department issued a supplemental questionnaire on November 1, 2006, to which Echjay responded on November 15, 2006. On December 27, 2006, Echjay submitted audited financial statements, revised section B and C data and calculations for fields that changed as a result of changes in the financial statement. On February 27, 2007, Echjay submitted a sales reconciliation. On December 21, 2006, Echjay requested revocation on the basis it had three years of zero or de minimis margins. Echjay also submitted the required certifications pursuant to 19 CFR 351.222. However, this request was filed nearly ten months after the deadline for filing such requests under 19 CFR 351.222(e)(1). This delay prevented the Department from timely notifying interested parties of Echjay’s possible revocation, as well as planning and conducting verification, both of which are required by 19 CFR 351.222(f). The Department will not therefore entertain this request in this review. Rollwell The Department sent its questionnaires to Rollwell on April 5, 2006. Rollwell submitted its response to the section A questionnaire on May 8, 2006. It submitted its responses to sections B and C on May 31, 2006. The Department issued a supplemental section A, B, and C questionnaire to Rollwell on November 1, 2006. Rollwell submitted its response to that supplemental questionnaire on Rescission of New Shipper Reviews, 71 FR 57468 (September 29, 2006). E:\FR\FM\07MRN1.SGM 07MRN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 27, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published the initiation of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on folding metal tables and chairs from the 
People's Republic of China (``PRC''). See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation 
in Part, 71 FR 42626 (July 27, 2006). This

review covers the period June 1, 2005, through May 31, 2006. The 
preliminary results of review are currently due no later than March 2, 
2007.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary 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 preliminary 
determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order 
within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date 
of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that 
the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 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 
preliminary results of the administrative review of folding metal 
tables and chairs from the PRC within this time limit. Specifically, 
due to complex issues related to the selection of surrogate values, we 
find that additional time is needed to complete these preliminary 
results. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, 
the Department is extending the time period for completion of the 
preliminary results of this review by 90 days until May 31, 2007.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) 
and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: March 1, 2007.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
