SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Background On July 26, 2007, the Department initiated a new shipper review of NewTec Integration (Xiamen) Co., Ltd. (‘‘New-Tec’’) covering the period December 1, 2006, through May 31, 2007. See Hand Trucks and Certain Parts Thereof From the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 72 FR 42392 (August 2, 2007). The preliminary results of this new shipper review are currently due no later than January 22, 2008. 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. See also 19 VerDate Aug<31>2005 22:52 Jan 28, 2008 Jkt 214001 CFR 351.214 (i)(1). The Act further provides that the Department may extend that 180-day period to 300 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated. See 19 CFR 351.214 (i)(2). Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results The Department determines that this new shipper review involves complicated methodological issues, the examination of importer information and the evaluation of the bona fide nature of the company’s sale. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2), the Department is extending the time limit for these preliminary results by 90 days, until no later than April 21, 2008. The final results continue to be due 90 days after the publication of the preliminary results. 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.

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’’).

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.

Postponement of Final Determination of Antidumping Duty 
Investigation: Sodium Hexametaphosphate From the People's Republic of 
China

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

EFFECTIVE DATE: January 29, 2008.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Erin Begnal or Scot Fullerton, Import 
Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of

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'').
    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 60-day postponement of the final determination of the 
investigation of SHMP from the PRC, based on the un-extended 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.

[[Page 5177]]

    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, based on the date of the publication of the 
preliminary determination (September 14, 2007), we are postponing the 
final determination by 135 days until January 28, 2007.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The full postponement would result in the signature day 
falling on January 27, 2008, which is a Sunday. Therefore, the 
signature day will roll over to the next business day, January 28, 
2008, in accordance with our practice. 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).
