SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: yshivers on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Background On February 2, 2007, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Ecuador for the period February 1, 2006, through January 31, 2007. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 72 FR 5007 (February 2, 2007). On February 28, 2007, the petitioner1 and the Louisiana Shrimp Association (LSA), a domestic interested party, requested an administrative review for numerous Ecuadorean exporters of subject merchandise in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(2)(1). On March 16, 2007, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the petitioner withdrew its request for administrative review of Sociedad Atlantico Pacifico. On April 6, 2007, the Department initiated an administrative review for 64 companies and requested that each provide data on the quantity and value (Q&V) of its exports of subject merchandise to the United States during the period of review (POR). These companies are listed in the Department’s notice of initiation. See Notice of Initiation of Administrative Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil, Ecuador, India and Thailand, 72 FR 17100 (April 6, 2007). Between April and June 2007 the Department received Q&V questionnaire responses from certain producers/ exporters that indicated that they had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. On July 5, 2006, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the LSA withdrew its requests for review for Doblertel S.A. and Sociedad Atlantico Pacifico. 1 The petitioner in this proceeding is the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:07 Aug 23, 2007 Jkt 211001 Partial Rescission of Review On March 16, 2007, and July 5, 2007, the requests for administrative review of Sociedad Atlantico Pacifico were withdrawn, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). Section 351.213(d)(1) of the Department’s regulations requires that the Secretary rescind an administrative review if a party requesting a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation. Therefore, because the requests for administrative review were timely withdrawn for the company listed above, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this review with regard to Sociedad Atlantico Pacifico. In addition, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), we are rescinding the review with respect to the following 18 companies because these companies submitted Q&V responses stating that they had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR: 1) Agricola e Ind Ecuaplantatio; 2) Babychic S.A.; 3) Camarones; 4) Doblertel S.A.; 5) Exportadora Bananera Noboa.; 6) Fortumar Ecuador S.A.; 7) Gambas del Pacifico; 8) Hectorosa; 9) Marisco (El Marisco); 10) Mariscos de Chupadores Chupamar; 11) P.C. Seafood S.A.; 12) Productos Cultivados del Mar Proc.; 13) Soitgar; 14) Studmark, S.A.; 15) Tecnica & Comercio de la Pesa Teco; 16) Transmarina C.A.; 17) Transocean Ecuador; and 18) Unilines Transport System. We reviewed U.S. Customs and Border Protection data and confirmed that there were no entries of subject merchandise from any of these companies. See the Memorandum to The File from David Goldberger entitled, ‘‘Department Intent to Rescind Reviews in Part,’’ dated July 19, 2007 (Intent to Rescind Memo). No party commented on our Intent to Rescind Memo. Consequently, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3) and consistent with our practice, we are rescinding our review with respect to the companies listed above.

The preliminary results of this new– shipper review are currently due no later than August 26, 2007. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of the New–Shipper Review Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to 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. We determine that this new–shipper review is extraordinarily complicated and that it is not possible to complete the preliminary results by the current deadline of August 26, 2007. Specifically, we have received a complex sales–below-cost allegation and an allegation of a major input provided at prices not reflective of market conditions which requires further consideration.

The Department concludes that, thus far, the parties concerned are cooperating. Furthermore, due to the number and complexity of the alleged countervailable subsidy practices being investigated, which include loans, grants, income tax programs, 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., September 20, 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 (i.e., November 26, 2007).

AGENCY: SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to section 4221 of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended (26 U.S.C. 4221), the Department of Commerce is undertaking to determine whether the governments of the countries or economies listed herein allow or will PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 allow substantially reciprocal tax exemptions to aircraft of U.S. registry in connection with international commercial operations similar to those exemptions currently granted to or available to aircraft of those countries or economies by the United States under the aforementioned statute. The basis for this undertaking is a request from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service for a comprehensive review of the existing findings to determine whether those countries or economies previously subject to exemptions from certain U.S. internal revenue taxes continue to allow substantially reciprocal tax exemptions to aircraft of U.S. registry. The above-cited statute provides exemptions for aircraft of foreign registry from payment of certain internal revenue taxes on the purchase of supplies in the United States for such aircraft in connection with their international commercial operations. These exemptions apply upon a finding by the Secretary of Commerce, or his designee, and communicated to the Department of the Treasury, that such country allows, or will allow, ‘‘substantially reciprocal privileges’’ to aircraft of U.S. registry with respect to purchases of such supplies in that country. The Department of Commerce proposes that aircraft registered in the following countries or economies be provided exemptions as allowed by section 4221 of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended (26 U.S.C. 4221).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    At the request of EuroChem, a Russian producer and exporter of 
solid urea from Russia, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
initiated a new-shipper review of the antidumping duty order on solid 
urea from Russia for the period July 1, 2006, through December 31, 
2006. See Solid Urea from Russia: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping 
Duty New-Shipper Review, 72 FR 9930 (March 6, 2007). The preliminary 
results of this new-shipper review are currently due no later than 
August 26, 2007.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of the New-Shipper 
Review

    Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to 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.
    We determine that this new-shipper review is extraordinarily 
complicated and that it is not possible to complete the preliminary 
results by the current deadline of August 26, 2007. Specifically, we 
have received a complex sales-below-cost allegation and an allegation 
of a major input provided at prices not reflective of market conditions 
which requires further consideration.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2), we are extending the time period for issuing 
the preliminary

results of this review by 113 days to December 17, 2007. The final 
results of this new-shipper review continue to be due 90 days after the 
date of issuance of the preliminary results of the new-shipper review.
    This notice is published in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: August 21, 2007.
