SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Background On July 3, 2006, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on saccharin from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 71 FR 37890 (July 3, 2006). We received timely requests for review from Amgal Chemical Products (1989) Ltd. (‘‘Amgal’’), Shanghai Fortune Chemical Company, Ltd. (‘‘Shanghai Fortune’’), and Suzhou Fine Chemical Co. Group Ltd. (‘‘Suzhou’’). On August 30, 2006, the Department published a notice of the initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on saccharin from the PRC for the period July 1, 2005, through June 30, 2006. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 51573 (August 30, 2006). On October 16, 2006, Suzhou withdrew its request for an administrative review. On November 14, 2006, Amgal withdrew its request for an administrative review. On December 26, 2006, we rescinded the administrative review with respect to Suzhou and Amgal. See Saccharin from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 77382 (December 26, 2006). The preliminary results of review are currently due no later than April 2, 2007. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:41 Mar 22, 2007 Jkt 211001 Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘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 saccharin from the PRC within this time limit due to the complexity of certain issues and the need to issue supplemental questionnaires requesting additional information from Shanghai Fortune. Specifically, the Department needs additional time to research and analyze the request for by–product offsets and the valuation of those by– products for which an offset was requested. 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 30 days until May 2, 2007. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: March 19, 2007. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

See Amended Final Determination and Antidumping Duty Order; Certain Forged Stainless Steel Flanges from India, 59 FR 5994 (February 9, 1994). On August 31, 2006, we received requests for new shipper reviews for the period February 1, 2006, through January 31, 2007 from Micro Forge (India) and Pradeep Metals Limited. On October 6, 2006, the Department published a notice initiating the requested reviews. See Stainless Steel Flanges from India: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 71 FR 59081, (October 6, 2006). The preliminary results of the new shipper review are currently due no later than March 28, 2007. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930 as amended (the Act), the Department shall issue preliminary results in a new shipper review of an antidumping duty order within 180 days after the date on which the new shipper review was initiated. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of a new shipper review from 180 days to 300 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act. We determine that this new shipper review is extraordinarily complicated because, among other things, we need additional time to determine whether Micro Forge’s and Pradeep’s sales to the United States were bona fide transactions. In addition, we require additional time to gather further information and verify Micro Forge’s responses to our request for constructed value information. Section 751(a)(2)(B) 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 a maximum of 300 days from the date on which the new shipper review was initiated. For the reasons noted above, we are extending the time for the completion of the preliminary results until no later than July 26, 2007, which is 300 days from the date on which the new shipper review was initiated.

(collectively ‘‘Ege Celik’’) in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(c), for a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on certain steel concrete reinforcing bars (rebar) from Turkey. On November 7, 2006, the Department found that the request for review with respect to Ege Celik met all of the regulatory requirements set forth in 19 CFR 351.214(b) and initiated an antidumping duty new shipper review covering the period April 1, 2006, through September 30, 2006. See Notice of Initiation of New Shipper Antidumping Duty Review: Certain Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars from Turkey, 71 FR 66503 (Nov. 15, 2006).

VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:41 Mar 22, 2007 Jkt 211001 Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) 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 a review within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results were issued. The Department may, however, extend the time period for completion of the preliminary results of a new shipper review to 300 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). The Department has determined that the review is extraordinarily complicated because it involves a number of issues including certain allegations raised by the domestic interested parties regarding Ege Celik’s affiliation with other producers in the Turkish steel industry. Analysis of these issues requires additional time. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for the completion of the preliminary results of the new shipper review of Ege Celik to 300 days. The preliminary results will now be due no later than September 4, 2007, the first business day after September 3, 2007, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2).
