See Carbazole Violet Pigment 23 from India: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 46954 (August 22, 2007). The preliminary results of the review are currently due no later than October 19, 2007. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary determination is published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month. We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the original time limit because we need additional time to obtain and analyze information regarding suspended entries of the subject merchandise during the period of review. Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this review by 45 days until December 3, 2007. This notice is published in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). Dated: October 10, 2007. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretaryfor Import Administration.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 31, 2007, the Department published the preliminary results of the antidumping duty new shipper administrative review of certain forged stainless steel flanges from India. See Preliminary Results. The review covers Micro Forge, and the POR is February 1, 2006, through July 31, 2006. In the Preliminary Results, we assigned Micro Forge a margin based on adverse facts available. We invited parties to comment. We received no comments. Scope of the Order The products covered by this order are certain forged stainless steel flanges, both finished and not finished, generally manufactured to specification ASTM A–182, and made in alloys such as 304, 304L, 316, and 316L. The scope includes five general types of flanges. They are weld–neck, used for butt–weld line connection; threaded, used for threaded line connections; slip–on and lap joint, used with stub–ends/butt– weld line connections; socket weld, used to fit pipe into a machined recession; and blind, used to seal off a line. The sizes of the flanges within the scope range generally from one to six inches; however, all sizes of the above– described merchandise are included in the scope. Specifically excluded from PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the scope of this order are cast stainless steel flanges. Cast stainless steel flanges generally are manufactured to specification ASTM A–351. The flanges subject to this order are currently classifiable under subheadings 7307.21.10.00 and 7307.21.50.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under review is dispositive of whether or not the merchandise is covered by the scope of the order. Final Results of the Review We determine the following percentage weighted–average margin exists for the period February 1, 2006, through July 31, 2006: Manufacturer / Exporter Weighted Average Margin (percentage) Micro Forge .................. 210.00 Liquidation The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. In this review, the Department is applying an adverse facts available rate of 210.00 percent to Micro Forge’s U.S. sales. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On May 21, 2007, the Department published the preliminary results of its new shipper reviews of the antidumping duty order on silicon metal from the PRC, and invited parties to comment on the preliminary results. See Preliminary Results. The new shipper reviews cover one exporter, Shanghai Jinneng and its affiliated producer, Datong Jinneng Industrial Silicon Co., Inc. (‘‘Datong Jinneng’’), and one producer/exporter: Jiangxi Gangyuan (hereinafter collectively ‘‘Respondents’’). See Preliminary Results. The period of review (‘‘POR’’) for these new shipper reviews is June 1, 2005, through May 31, 2006. On June 11, 2007, we received additional data from both Respondents and Globe Metallurgical Inc. (‘‘Petitioner’’) regarding factors of production. On June 25, 2007, we received Respondents’ case brief, and on June 26, 2007, we received Petitioner’s case brief. On July 2, 2007, we received the Respondents’ rebuttal brief, and on July 3, 2007, we received the Petitioner’s rebuttal brief. On July 30, 2007, we held both a public and a closed hearing, and the transcripts of these hearings were placed on the record on August 6, 2007. Scope of the Order The product covered by the order and this review is silicon metal containing at least 96.00 but less than 99.99 percent PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58641 of silicon by weight, and silicon metal with a higher aluminum content containing between 89 and 96 percent silicon by weight. The merchandise under investigation is currently classifiable under item numbers 2804.69.10 and 2804.69.50 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) as a chemical product, but is commonly referred to as a metal. Semiconductor–grade silicon (silicon metal containing by weight not less than 99.99 percent of silicon and provided for in subheading 2804.61.00 of the HTSUS) is not subject to this order. This order is not limited to silicon metal used only as an alloy agent or in the chemical industry. Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise is dispositive. New Shipper Status For these final results, no party has contested the bona fides of either Respondent’s sales, therefore we continue to find, as in the Preliminary Results, that both Respondents have met the requirements to qualify as a new shipper during the POR and that the Respondents’ sale of silicon metal to the United States is an appropriate transaction for a new shipper. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on the comments received from the interested parties, we have made changes to the margin calculation for both Jiangxi Gangyuan and Shanghai Jinneng. Analysis of Comments Received In the case and rebuttal briefs received from the parties after the Preliminary Results, we received comments on several issues, including the surrogate country selection and surrogate values used to value (1) electricity and (2) overhead, selling, general and administrative expenses, and profit . All issues raised in the case briefs are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues raised, all of which are in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, is attached to this notice as Appendix I.
