Statutory Time Limits 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 day on which the review was initiated.

We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: January 18, 2008. Stephen J.

AGENCY: 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 PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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’’). Section 735(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (‘‘the Act’’) provides that a final 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., requested a 60-day extension of the final determination (i.e., 135 days after the publication of the preliminary determination) and extension of the provisional measures. On September 28, 2007, the Department published a 60day postponement of the final determination of the investigation of SHMP from the PRC, based on the unextended final determination date of November 20, 2007. See Postponement of Final Determination of Antidumping Duty Investigation: Sodium Hexametaphosphate from the People’s Republic of China, 72 FR 55176 (September 28, 2007). The Department intended to fully postpone the final determination by 135 days, pursuant to section 735(a) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2), but it inadvertently calculated the postponement based on the signature date of the preliminary determination, as opposed to the publication date. With this notice, we intend to fully postpone the final determination based upon the publication date of the preliminary determination. E:\FR\FM\29JAN1.SGM 29JAN1
