These issues include the appropriate model matching procedures to employ in this changed circumstances review, and whether the VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:21 Feb 05, 2008 Jkt 214001 Department should employ investigation or administrative review methodologies in calculating dumping margins. Consequently, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.302(b), the Department is extending the time period for issuing the final results of review by 60 days. Therefore, the final results will be due no later than March 30, 2008. As March 30, 2008 falls on a Sunday, our final results will be issued no later than Monday March 31, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On May 1, 2007, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published in the Federal Register a notice for an opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on pure magnesium from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 72 FR 23796 (May 1, 2007). As a result of a request for a review and a one year deferral filed by Tianjin Magnesium International Co., Ltd. (‘‘TMI’’) on May 30, 2007, and a request for a review filed by Shanxi Datuhe Coke & Chemicals Co., Ltd. (‘‘Datuhe’’) on May 31, 2007, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review (i.e., Datuhe) PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6931 and deferral of initiation of administration review with respect to TMI for the period May 1, 2006, through April 30, 2007. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, Request for Revocation in Part and Deferral of Administrative Review, 72 FR 35690 (June 29, 2007). Upon learning that the domestic interested party did not receive notice of TMI’s request for a deferral, we extended the time period for the domestic interested party to object. The domestic interested party did object. Consequently, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213 (c), we determined not to defer the review for TMI. See memorandum to the file from Hua Lu, Case Analyst, through Robert Bolling, Granting Petitioner An Extension of Time to File An Objection to Respondent’s Deferral Request, dated September 26, 2007. The preliminary results of review are currently due no later than January 31, 2008. Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), requires the Department to issue preliminary results within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and the final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. 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 245-day time period to a maximum of 365 days. We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period is not practicable because the Department requires additional time to analyze information pertaining to the respondents’ sales practices, factors of production, and to issue and review responses to supplemental questionnaires. Because it is not practicable to complete this review within the time specified under the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 90 days until April 30, 2008, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results. This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).

SUMMARY: On August 3, 2007, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel sheet and strip in coils (SSSSC) from Taiwan (72 FR 43236). This review covers three producers/exporters of the subject merchandise to the United States. The period of review (POR) is July 1, 2005, through June 30, 2006. We are rescinding the review with respect to nine companies because these companies had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made certain changes in the margin calculations. Therefore, the final results differ from the preliminary results. The final weighted-average dumping margins for the reviewed firms are listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of Review.’’ EFFECTIVE DATE: February 6, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Background This review covers three producers/ exporters. These companies are Chia Far Industrial Factory Co., Ltd. (Chia Far), PFP Taiwan Co., Ltd. (PFP Taiwan) and Yieh Trading Corp. (also known as Yieh Corp.). On August 3, 2007, the Department published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on SSSSC from Taiwan. See Stainless VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:21 Feb 05, 2008 Jkt 214001 Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils from Taiwan: Preliminary Results and Rescission in Part of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 43236 (Aug. 3, 2007) (Preliminary Results). We invited parties to comment on our preliminary results of review. In September 2007, we received case and rebuttal briefs from the petitioners 1 (i.e., Allegheny Ludlum Corporation, United Auto Workers Local 3303 (formerly Butler Armco Independent Union), United Steelworkers of America, AFL– CIO/CLC, and Zanesville Armco Independent Organization) and Chia Far, the sole respondent participating in this review. The Department has conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are certain stainless steel sheet and strip in coils. Stainless steel is an alloy steel containing, by weight, 1.2 percent or less of carbon and 10.5 percent or more of chromium, with or without other elements. The subject sheet and strip is a flat-rolled product in coils that is greater than 9.5 mm in width and less than 4.75 mm in thickness, and that is annealed or otherwise heat treated and pickled or otherwise descaled. The subject sheet and strip may also be further processed (e.g., cold-rolled, polished, aluminized, coated, etc.) provided that it maintains the specific dimensions of sheet and strip following such processing. The merchandise subject to the order is classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) at subheadings: 7219.13.00.31, 7219.13.00.51, 7219.13.00.71, 7219.13.00.81, 7219.14.00.30, 7219.14.00.65, 7219.14.00.90, 7219.32.00.05, 7219.32.00.20, 7219.32.00.25, 7219.32.00.35, 7219.32.00.36, 7219.32.00.38, 7219.32.00.42, 7219.32.00.44, 7219.33.00.05, 7219.33.00.20, 7219.33.00.25, 7219.33.00.35, 7219.33.00.36, 7219.33.00.38, 7219.33.00.42, 7219.33.00.44, 1 We note that, on October 16, 2007, we rejected the petitioners’ case and rebuttal briefs because of the improper bracketing (i.e., claims for treatment as business proprietary information) of public information. See the September 26, 2007, memorandum from Elizabeth Eastwood to the file entitled, ‘‘Conversation with Counsel for Chia Far industrial Factory Co., Ltd., Regarding the Bracketing of Information Contained in the Petitioners’ September 10, 2007, and September 17, 2007, Submissions in the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review on Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils from Taiwan.’’ The petitioners resubmitted properly-bracketed versions of both their case and rebuttal briefs on October 18, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 1, 2007, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published in the Federal Register a notice for an opportunity to 
request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on pure 
magnesium from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). See 
Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended 
Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 72 FR 
23796 (May 1, 2007). As a result of a request for a review and a one 
year deferral filed by Tianjin Magnesium International Co., Ltd. 
(``TMI'') on May 30, 2007, and a request for a review filed by Shanxi 
Datuhe Coke & Chemicals Co., Ltd. (``Datuhe'') on May 31, 2007, the 
Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of 
an administrative review (i.e., Datuhe) and deferral of initiation of 
administration review with respect to TMI for the period May 1, 2006, 
through April 30, 2007. See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, Request for Revocation in 
Part and Deferral of Administrative Review, 72 FR 35690 (June 29, 
2007). Upon learning that the domestic interested party did not receive 
notice of TMI's request for a deferral, we extended the time period for 
the domestic interested party to object. The domestic interested party 
did object. Consequently, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213 (c), we determined 
not to defer the review for TMI. See memorandum to the file from Hua 
Lu, Case Analyst, through Robert Bolling, Granting Petitioner An 
Extension of Time to File An Objection to Respondent's Deferral 
Request, dated September 26, 2007. The preliminary results of review 
are currently due no later than January 31, 2008.

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results.

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``Act''), requires the Department to issue preliminary results within 
245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for 
which a review is requested and the final results within 120 days after 
the date on which the preliminary results are published. 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 
245-day time period to a maximum of 365 days. We determine that 
completion of the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day 
period is not practicable because the Department requires additional 
time to analyze information pertaining to the respondents' sales 
practices, factors of production, and to issue and review responses to 
supplemental questionnaires.
    Because it is not practicable to complete this review within the 
time specified under the Act, we are extending the time period for 
issuing the preliminary results of review by 90 days until April 30, 
2008, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. The final 
results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the 
preliminary results.
    This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
