Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 63 / Tuesday, April 3, 2007 / Notices Background DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE On February 1, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain cased pencils from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) covering the period December 1, 2004, through November 30, 2005. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 5241 (February 1, 2006). On December 7, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of the instant review. See Certain Cased Pencils from the People’s Republic of China; Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 70949. The final results of review are currently due no later than April 6, 2007. International Trade Administration Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review ycherry on PROD1PC64 with NOTICES Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to make a final determination in an antidumping duty administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary determination is published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the final determination to 180 days from the date of publication of the preliminary determination (or 300 days if the Department has not extended the time limit for the preliminary determination). We have determined that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this review within the original time limit because the Department requires additional time to consider a number of complex issues involving, inter alia, the valuation of a major input, and selection of a surrogate source for manufacturing overhead expenses, general expenses, and profit. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for completion of these final results of review by 30 days. We intend to issue the final results of review no later than May 7, 2007 (the first business day after the extended due date of May 6, 2007). Dated: March 28, 2007. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On August 30, 2006, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on furfuryl alcohol from Thailand covering 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). However, since the initiation, the Department has revoked this order effective May 4, 2006. See Furfuryl Alcohol from Thailand; Final Results of the Second Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order and Revocation of the Order, 72 FR 9729 (March 5, 2006). Therefore, the period of review is now July 1, 2005 through May 3, 2006. The preliminary results for this review are currently due no later than April 2, 2006. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to issue 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 and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 days and 180 days, respectively. PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 15863 We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review by the current deadline of April 2, 2007. As a result of the revocation of the order, the period of review changed. This requires the Department to consider a new universe of possible transactions for this administrative review. Consequently, we require additional time to issue and analyze supplemental questionnaires. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this review to July 31, 2007. The deadline for the final results of this administrative review continues to be 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results. We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: March 28, 2007. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.
