E7–15032 Filed 8–1–07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–DS–S DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Background On June 27, 2007, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) initiated the countervailing duty investigation of circular welded carbon quality steel pipe from the People’s Republic of China. See Notice of Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation: Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe from the People’s Republic of China, 72 FR 36668 (July 5, 2007). Currently, the preliminary determination is due no later than August 31, 2007. Postponement of Due Date for Preliminary Determinations Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination in a countervailing duty investigation within 65 days after the date on which the Department initiated the investigation. However, if the Department concludes that the parties concerned in the investigation are cooperating and determines that the investigation is extraordinarily complicated, section 703(c)(1)(B)(i) of the Act allows the Department to postpone making the preliminary determination until no later than the 130 days after the date on which the administering authority initiated the investigation. The Department concludes that, thus far, the parties concerned are cooperating. Furthermore, due to the complexity of the alleged countervailable subsidy practices being investigated, which include provision of goods or services for less than adequate remuneration and government restraints on exports, it is not practicable to complete the preliminary determination of this investigation within the original time limit (i.e., August 31, 2007). Therefore, in accordance with section 703(c)(1)(B)(i) of the Act, we are fully extending the due date for the preliminary determination to no later than 130 days after the day on which the investigation was initiated. As this deadline falls on a weekend, however, the fully extended deadline is the next business day, November 5, 2007. This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) of the Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 9, 2006, President Bush signed into law the Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006 (HR 6406/HR 6111) (‘‘the Act’’). Section 406(b)(1) of the Act requires the Secretary of Commerce to fairly allocate tariff rate quotas on the import of certain cotton woven fabrics through December 31, 2009. Section 406 (b)(1) authorizes the Secretary of Commerce to issue licenses to eligible manufacturers under headings 9902.52.08 through 9902.52.19 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, specifying the restrictions under each such license on the quantity of cotton woven fabrics that may be entered each year on behalf of the manufacturer. The Act created an annual tariff rate quota providing for temporary reductions through December 31, 2009 in the import duties of cotton woven fabrics suitable for making cotton shirts (new Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) headings 9902.52.08, 9902.52.09, 9902.52.10, 9902.52.11, 9902.52.12, 9902.52.13, 9902.52.14, 9902.52.15, 9902.52.16, 9902.52.17, 9902.52.18, and 9902.52.19). The reduction in duty is limited to 85 percent of the total square meter equivalents of all imported woven fabrics of cotton containing 85 percent or more by weight cotton used by manufacturers in cutting and sewing men’s and boy’s cotton shirts in the United States and purchased by such manufacturer during calendar year 2000. The Act requires that the tariff rate quotas be allocated to persons (including firms, corporations, or other legal entities) who, during calendar year 2000, were manufacturers cutting and sewing men’s and boy’s cotton shirts in the United States from imported woven fabrics of cotton containing 85 percent or more by weight cotton of the kind described in HTS 9902.52.08 through 9902.5219 purchased by such manufacturer during calendar year 2000.

Background

    On February 2, 2007, the U.S. Department of Commerce (``the

review of the countervailing duty order on certain hot-rolled carbon 
steel flat products from the India covering the period of review
