SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Background The Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results and partial rescission of the 2005–2006 antidumping duty administrative review of heavy forged hand tools, finished or unfinished, with or without handles (Hand Tools), from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) on March 8, 2007. See Heavy Forged Hand Tools, Finished or Unfinished, With or Without Handles, From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results and Partial Rescission of the 2005–2006 Administrative Reviews, 72 FR 10492 (March 8, 2007). We received a case brief from respondent Shandong Machinery Import & Export Company (SMC) on April 9, 2007. Separate rebuttal briefs were received from both petitioners, Ames True Temper (Ames) and Council Tool Company (Council Tools) on April 16, 2007. On April 24, 2007, we placed on the record certain documents received from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). See Memorandum to the File from Mark Flessner, Case Analyst, entitled ‘‘Heavy Forged Hand Tools, Finished or Unfinished, With or Without Handles, From the People’s Republic of China (A–580–803): U.S. Entry Documents and Opportunity to Comment,’’ dated April 24, 2007. SMC, Ames, and Council Tools filed comments concerning these CBP documents on May 9, 2007. SMC requested and was granted time to file a rebuttal to the Ames and Council Tools comments; SMC’s rebuttal was received on May 16, 2007. On July 6, 2007, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of extension for the final results. See Notice of Extension of Time Limit for Final Results and Partial Rescission of the 2005–2006 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Heavy Forged Hand Tools, Finished or Unfinished, With or Without Handles, from the People’s Republic of China, 72 FR 36959 (July 6, 2007). This partially extended the time limit for the final results until August 6, 2007. Extension of Time Limits for Final Results Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Tariff Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1), the Department shall issue the preliminary results of an administrative VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:14 Aug 07, 2007 Jkt 211001 review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Tariff Act further provides that the Department shall issue the final results of review within 120 days after the date on which the notice of the preliminary results was published in the Federal Register. However, if the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2) allow the Department to extend the 245-day period to 365 days and the 120-day period to 180 days. Due to the addition of important new information to the record, the complexity of the issues involved, and the time required to analyze the numerous submissions and arguments raised in parties’ briefs, the Department has determined that it is not practicable to complete these reviews within the period of the partial extension indicated by the Federal Register notice published on July 6, 2007. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h) allow the Department to extend the deadline for the final results of a review to a maximum of 180 days from the date on which the notice of the preliminary results was published. The current deadline for the final results is August 6, 2007. For the reasons noted above, the Department is fully extending the time limit for the completion of the final results for the 2005–2006 antidumping duty administrative review of Hand Tools from the PRC until no later than September 4, 2007, which is 180 days from the date on which the notice of the preliminary results was published. This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act. Dated: August 2, 2007. Gary Taverman, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

(Sunflag). See Stainless Steel Wire Rod From India: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty New–Shipper Review, 72 FR 13088 (March 20, 2007). The period of review is December 1, 2005, through November 30, 2006. The preliminary results of this new–shipper review are currently due no later than September 9, 2007. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), provides that the Department will issue the preliminary results of a new– shipper review of an antidumping duty order within 180 days after the date on which the review is initiated. The Act provides further that, if the case is extraordinarily complicated, the Department may extend the 180-day period to 300 days. The Department has determined that this new–shipper review is extraordinarily complicated and it is not possible to complete the preliminary results by the current deadline of September 9, 2007. Specifically, there are a number of complex factual issues pertaining to the sales practices, manufacturing costs, and the determination of potential comparison– market matches which affect the calculation of the antidumping margin in this new–shipper review. We require additional time to analyze the questionnaire responses, issue supplemental questionnaires, and conduct verification. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2), the Department is extending the time limit for the preliminary results by 40 days to October 19, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On March 20, 2007, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published a notice of initiation of a new-shipper review of the 
antidumping duty order on stainless steel wire rods from India for 
Sunflag Iron and Steel Co., Ltd. (Sunflag). See Stainless Steel Wire 
Rod From India: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty New-Shipper 
Review, 72 FR 13088 (March 20, 2007). The period of review is December 
1, 2005, through November 30, 2006. The preliminary results of this 
new-shipper review are currently due no later than September 9, 2007.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), provides that the Department will issue the preliminary results 
of a new-shipper review of an antidumping duty order within 180 days 
after the date on which the review is initiated. The Act provides 
further that, if the case is extraordinarily complicated, the 
Department may extend the 180-day period to 300 days.
    The Department has determined that this new-shipper review is 
extraordinarily complicated and it is not possible to complete the 
preliminary results by the current deadline of September 9, 2007. 
Specifically, there are a number of complex factual issues pertaining 
to the sales practices, manufacturing costs, and the determination of 
potential comparison-market matches which affect the calculation of the 
antidumping margin in this new-shipper review. We require additional 
time to analyze the questionnaire responses, issue supplemental 
questionnaires, and conduct verification. Therefore, in accordance with 
section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2), the 
Department is extending the time limit for the preliminary results by 
40 days to October 19, 2007. The final results of the new-shipper 
review continue to be due 90 days after the date of issuance of the 
preliminary results of new-shipper review.
