SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: International Trade Administration On June 6, 2007, the Department published the preliminary results of the 2005–2006 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain polyester staple fiber (‘‘PSF’’) from Korea. See Certain Polyester Staple Fiber from Korea: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Preliminary Intent to Rescind, 72 FR 31279 (June 6, 2007). This review covers two manufacturers/ exporters of the subject merchandise to the United States, Huvis Corporation (‘‘Huvis’’) and Dongwoo Industry Company (‘‘Dongwoo’’). In the preliminary results, we stated that we would issue our final results for the antidumping duty administrative review no later than 120 days after the date of publication of the preliminary results (i.e., October 4, 2007). Extension of Time Limit for Final Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’) requires the Department to issue the final results in an administrative review within 120 days of the publication date of the preliminary results. 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 results to a maximum of 180 days. The Department has determined that completion of the final results of this review within the original time period is not practicable due to the complex legal and factual issues that have arisen since the issuance of our preliminary results of review. Specifically, the Department requires additional time to review interested parties’ comments on information provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection with respect to Dongwoo. Thus, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for issuing the final results of review by an additional 60 days, until December 3, 2007. This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Frm 00005 BILLING CODE 3510–DS–S DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Background PO 00000 Dated: September 20, 2007.

See Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Sodium Hexametaphosphate from the People’s Republic of China, 72 FR 52544 (September 14, 2007) (‘‘Preliminary Determination’’). The Preliminary Determination stated that the Department would make its final determination for this antidumping duty investigation no later than 75 days after the date of publication of the preliminary determination (i.e., November 20, 2007). Section 735(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (‘‘the Act’’) provides that a final E:\FR\FM\28SEN1.SGM 28SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 188 / Friday, September 28, 2007 / Notices determination may be postponed until not later than 135 days after the date of the publication of the preliminary determination if, in the event of an affirmative determination, a request for such postponement is made by exporters who account for a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise, or in the event of a negative preliminary determination, a request for such postponement is made by petitioner. In addition, the Department’s regulations, at 19 CFR 351.210(e)(2), require that requests by respondents for postponement of a final determination be accompanied by a request for extension of provisional measures from a four-month period to not more than six months. See 19 CFR 351.210(e)(2). On September 11, 2007, Hubei Xingfa Chemicals Group Co., Ltd., the sole active mandatory respondent, requested a 60-day extension of the final determination and extension of the provisional measures. Thus, because our preliminary determination is affirmative, and the respondent requesting an extension of the final determination and an extension of the provisional measures, accounts for a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise, and no compelling reasons for denial exist, we are extending the due date for the final determination by 60 days. For the reasons identified above, we are postponing the final determination until January 22, 2008.1 This notice is issued and published pursuant to sections 777(i) and 735(a)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(g).

ACTION: Notice of allocation of 2007 cotton shirting fabrics tariff rate quota. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) has determined the allocation for Calendar Year 2007 of imports of certain cotton shirting fabrics under tariff rate quotas established by Section 406(b)(1) of the Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006 (Public Law No. 109-432). The reduction in duty is applicable to fabric entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption under a license during calendar year 2007. Claims for reduction in duty can be made retroactively to U.S. Customs and Border Protection for qualifying fabrics under the license as long as the fabrics were entered or withdrawn from warehouse during calendar year 2007. The companies that are being provided an allocation are listed below. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sergio Botero, Office of Textiles and Apparel, U.S. Department of Commerce, (202) 482-4058. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 20, 2006, President Bush signed into law the Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006 (‘‘the Act’’). Section 406(b)(1) of the Act requires the Secretary of Commerce to fairly allocate tariff rate quotas (‘‘TRQ’’) 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 PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 55177 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 of 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 of cotton of the kind described in HTS 9902.52.08 through 9902.5219 purchased by such manufacturer during calendar year 2000. On July 24, 2007, the Department published regulations establishing procedures for allocating the TRQ. 72 FR 40235, 15 CFR 336. On August 2, 2007 the Department published a notice in the Federal Register (72 FR 42400) soliciting applications for an allocation of the 2007 tariff rate quotas with a closing date of September 4, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Postponement of Final Determination

    On February 28, 2007, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
initiated the antidumping duty investigation of sodium 
hexametaphosphate from the People's Republic of China. See Initiation 
of Antidumping Duty Investigation: Sodium Hexametaphosphate From the 
People's Republic of China, 72 FR 9926 (March 6, 2007) (``Initiation 
Notice''); see also Notice of Correction of Initiation of Antidumping 
Duty Investigation: Sodium Hexametaphosphate from the People's Republic 
of China, 72 FR 11325 (March 13, 2007). On September 14, 2007, the 
Department published the Preliminary Determination in the antidumping 
duty investigation of sodium hexametaphosphate (``SHMP'') from the 
People's Republic of China. See Preliminary Determination of Sales at 
Less Than Fair Value: Sodium Hexametaphosphate from the People's 
Republic of China, 72 FR 52544 (September 14, 2007) (``Preliminary 
Determination''). The Preliminary Determination stated that the 
Department would make its final determination for this antidumping duty 
investigation no later than 75 days after the date of publication of 
the preliminary determination (i.e., November 20, 2007).
    Section 735(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (``the Act'') provides 
that a final

[[Page 55177]]

determination may be postponed until not later than 135 days after the 
date of the publication of the preliminary determination if, in the 
event of an affirmative determination, a request for such postponement 
is made by exporters who account for a significant proportion of 
exports of the subject merchandise, or in the event of a negative 
preliminary determination, a request for such postponement is made by 
petitioner. In addition, the Department's regulations, at 19 CFR 
351.210(e)(2), require that requests by respondents for postponement of 
a final determination be accompanied by a request for extension of 
provisional measures from a four-month period to not more than six 
months. See 19 CFR 351.210(e)(2).
    On September 11, 2007, Hubei Xingfa Chemicals Group Co., Ltd., the 
sole active mandatory respondent, requested a 60-day extension of the 
final determination and extension of the provisional measures. Thus, 
because our preliminary determination is affirmative, and the 
respondent requesting an extension of the final determination and an 
extension of the provisional measures, accounts for a significant 
proportion of exports of the subject merchandise, and no compelling 
reasons for denial exist, we are extending the due date for the final 
determination by 60 days. For the reasons identified above, we are 
postponing the final determination until January 22, 2008.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The sixty-day extension would result in the signature day 
falling on January 19, 2008, which is a Saturday. Therefore, the 
signature day will roll over to the next business day, January 22, 
2008, in accordance with our practice, as January 21, 2008, the 
following Monday, is a holiday. See Notice of Clarification: 
Application of ``Next Business Day'' Rule for Administrative 
Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As 
Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).
