SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 26, 2007, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published a preliminary notice of intent to rescind the antidumping duty new shipper review of certain frozen warm water shrimp from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) with respect to Maoming Changxing Foods Co., Ltd. (‘‘Maoming Changxing’’), covering the period February 1, 2006, through July 31, 2007.

Consistent with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’) and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2), the Department is extending the time limit for the completion of the final results of this new shipper review by 60 days because the case is extraordinarily complicated. This new shipper review involves complicated ownership and affiliation issues which will require the Department to consider arguments by interested parties regarding the actual owners and the source of founding capital with respect to Maoming Changxing. In addition, the Department requires additional time to consider domestic producers’ arguments regarding the antidumping duty rate to apply to Maoming Changxing. Because of the complexity of issues in this case, and 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 final results of the new shipper review of Maoming Changxing by 60 days. Since a 60-day extension would result in the deadline for the final results falling on December 16, 2007, which is Sunday, the new deadline for the final results will be the next business day, December 17, 2007.

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On August 2, 2007, the Department of Commerce published the 
preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping 
duty order on furfuryl alcohol from Thailand. The period of review is 
July 1, 2005, through May 3, 2006. The final results do not differ from 
the preliminary results of this review, in which we found that sales of 
the subject merchandise have not been made below normal value.

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 12, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Damian Felton or Brandon Farlander, 
AD/CVD Operations, Office 1, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-
0133 and (202) 482-0182, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 25, 1995, the Department published an antidumping duty 
order on furfuryl alcohol from Thailand. See Furfuryl Alcohol from 
Thailand: Notice of Amended Final Antidumping Duty Determination and 
Order, 60 FR 38035 (July 25, 1995). On August 30, 2006, the Department 
published a notice of initiation for this administrative review. See 
Notice of Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 71 FR 51573 (August 30, 2006). On August 2, 
2007, the Department published in the Federal Register its preliminary 
results of the administrative review of this order. See Furfuryl 
Alcohol from Thailand; Preliminary Results of 2005-2006 Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 42390 (August 2, 2007) (``Preliminary 
Results''). In the Preliminary Results, the Department invited 
interested parties to submit briefs and request a hearing. No briefs 
were received and the Department did not conduct a hearing because none 
was requested.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by this order is furfuryl alcohol 
(C4H3OCH2OH). Furfuryl alcohol is a primary alcohol, and is colorless 
or pale yellow in appearance. It is used in the manufacture of resins 
and as a wetting agent and solvent for coating resins, nitrocellulose, 
cellulose acetate, and other soluble dyes.
    The product subject to this order is classifiable under subheading 
2932.13.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and 
customs purposes, our written description of the scope of this 
proceeding is dispositive.

Period of Review

    The period of review (``POR'') is July 1, 2005, through May 3, 
2006.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ On August 30, 2006, the Department published a notice of 
initiation for this administrative review covering the period July 
1, 2005, through June 30, 2006. See Notice of Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 71 FR 
51573 (August 30, 2006). However, following the initiation, the 
Department has revoked this order effective May 4, 2006. See 
Furfuryl Alcohol from Thailand; Final Results of the Second Sunset 
Review of the Antidumping Duty Order and Revocation of the Order, 72 
FR 9729 (March 5, 2007). Therefore, the revised POR is now July 1, 
2005 through May 3, 2006.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of Review

    As noted above, the Department received no comments concerning the 
Preliminary Results. Consistent with the Preliminary Results, we find 
that a de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent) dumping margin exists 
for Indorama Chemicals (Thailand) Ltd. during the POR. Because no party 
submitted comments on the Preliminary Results and the Department has 
not made any changes to the Preliminary Results, we have not prepared a 
Decision Memorandum for these final results. For further details of our 
findings, see the Preliminary Results.

Indorama Chemicals (Thailand) Ltd...................               0.39*
------------------------------------------------------------------------
\*\This is a de minimis rate.

Assessment Rates

    The Department has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review. The Department intends

[[Page 58057]]

to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication 
date of these final results. Because the respondent did not report the 
entered value of its U.S. sales, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we 
have calculated importer-specific per-unit duty assessment rates by 
aggregating the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the 
examined sales and dividing this amount by the total quantity of those 
sales. To determine whether the duty assessment rates are de minimis, 
in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), 
we calculated importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem ratios based 
on the estimated entered value. Where an importer (or customer)-
specific ad valorem rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003 (68 FR 23954). This clarification will apply to entries of 
subject merchandise during the period of review produced by reviewed 
companies for which these companies did not know their merchandise was 
destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP 
to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no 
rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. For 
a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 
FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

Cash Deposit Rates

    On March 5, 2007, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(1)(ii), the 
Department revoked the antidumping duty order on furfuryl alcohol from 
Thailand (see Furfuryl Alcohol from Thailand; Final Results of the 
Second Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order and Revocation of 
the Order, 72 FR 9729 (March 5, 2007)). The effective date of the 
revocation is May 4, 2006. As a result of this action, the Department 
does not intend to issue cash deposit instructions.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to
    liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. 
Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary's 
presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the 
subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
Administrative Protective Order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely written 
notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion 
to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply 
with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is 
subject to sanctions.
    We are issuing and publishing these results and this notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
