See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 72 FR 20986 (April 27, 2007). U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–2312 or (202) 482–4136, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Partial Rescission of Review Initiation of Investigations On May 24, 2007, Ugitech timely withdrew its request for an administrative review of its sales during the above–referenced period. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested the review withdraws the request within ninety days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. Because Ugitech has withdrawn its request for review within the 90-day period and no other party requested a review of Ugitech, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this review with respect to Ugitech. The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 15 days after the publication of this notice. The Department will direct CBP to assess antidumping duties at the cash deposit rate in effect on the date of entry for entries during the period March 1, 2006, through February 28, 2007. This notice is published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). The Petitions On May 29, 2007, the Department of Commerce (Department) received antidumping duty petitions (petitions) filed by Mid Continent Nail Corporation, Davis Wire Corporation, Gerdau Ameristeel Corporation (Atlas Steel & Wire Division), Maze Nails (Division of W.H. Maze Company), and Treasure Coast Fasteners, Inc. (collectively, the petitioners) on behalf of the domestic industry producing certain steel nails. Notice of Extension of the Deadline for Determining the Adequacy of the Antidumping Duty Petitions: Certain Steel Nails from the People’s Republic of China and the United Arab Emirates Determination of Industry Support for the Petition Section 732(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires that a petition be filed by or on behalf of the domestic industry. Section 732(c)(4)(A) of the Act provides that the Department’s industry support determination be based on whether a minimum percentage of the relevant industry supports the petition. A petition meets this requirement if the domestic producers or workers who support the petition account for: (i) at least 25 percent of the total production of the domestic like product; and (ii) more than 50 percent of the production of the domestic like product produced by that portion of the industry expressing support for, or opposition to, the petition. Moreover, section 732(c)(4)(D) of the Act provides that, if the petition does not establish support of domestic producers or workers accounting for more than 50 percent of the total production of the domestic like product, the Department shall: (i) poll the industry or rely on other information in order to determine if there is support for the petition, as required by subparagraph (A), or (ii) if there is a large number of producers, determine industry support using a statistically valid sampling method to poll the industry.

On June 1, 2007, the Department began issuing polling questionnaires to all known domestic producers of certain steel nails identified in the petition. The questionnaires are on file in the Central Records Unit in room B–099 of the main Department of Commerce building. The Department requested that each company complete the polling questionnaire and fax their responses to the Department. The Department will need additional time to analyze the domestic producers’ responses to this request for information. Therefore, it is necessary to extend the deadline determining the adequacy of the petition for a period not to exceed 40 days from the filing of the petition. As a result, the initiation determination will now be due no later than July 9, 2007. International Trade Commission Notification The Department will contact the International Trade Commission (ITC) and will make this extension notice available to the ITC. Dated: June 11, 2007.
