SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On June 1, 2007, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel butt–weld pipe fittings (‘‘SSBWPF’’) from Taiwan for the period of review (‘‘POR’’) of June 1, 2006, through May 31, 2007. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 72 FR 30542 (June 1, 2007). On June 28, 2007, Flowline Division of Markovitz Enterprises, Inc. (‘‘Flowline Division’’), Gerlin, Inc., Shaw Alloy Piping Products, Inc., and Taylor Forge Stainless, Inc. (collectively, ‘‘petitioners’’) requested an antidumping duty administrative review for sales of SSBWPF from Taiwan produced by Ta Chen Stainless Pipe Co., Ltd. (‘‘Ta Chen’’), Liang Feng Stainless Steel Fitting Co., Ltd., Tru–Flow Industrial Co., Ltd., Censor International Corporation, and PFP Taiwan Co., Ltd. On June 28, 2007, Ta Chen also requested an administrative review of its sales to the United States during the PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12375 POR. On July 26, 2007, the Department published the notice initiating this administrative review. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation In Part, 72 FR 41057 (July 26, 2007). The preliminary results are currently due not later than March 1, 2008. Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results of Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), and 19 CFR ? 351.213(h)(2), the Department may extend the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of a review by 120 days if it determines that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order for which the administrative review was requested. Due to the complexity of the issues involved, including questions of affiliation and Ta Chen’s reported costs of production, and the time required to analyze Ta Chen’s supplemental questionnaire responses, as well as the demands of other proceedings handled by the office administering this review, the Department has determined that it is not practicable to complete this review within the original time period. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for the preliminary results by 120 days to not later than June 29, 2008, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) fo the Act. However, as that date falls on a Sunday, the preliminary results will be due not later than the next business day, June 30, 2008. The deadline for the final results of this review will continue to be 120 days after publication of the preliminary results. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: February 29, 2008. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Background On December 7, 2007, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain hot– rolled carbon steel flat products (‘‘hot– rolled steel’’) from Thailand, covering the period November 1, 2005, through October 31, 2006. See Certain Hot– Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from Thailand: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Partial Rescission, 72 FR 69187 (December 7, 2007) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). The final results of this review are currently due no later than April 5, 2008. Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department shall make a final determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the 120–day period to 180 days after the preliminary results, if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the final results of the administrative review of hot– rolled steel from Thailand within the 120–day period due to the complexity of two issues which were briefed by petitioner, respondent, and domestic interested party. First, the Department applied facts otherwise available to G Steel Public Company Limited (‘‘G Steel’’) in the Preliminary Results because we were unable to verify G Steel’s yield strength data in both the home market and U.S. market. Second, in the Preliminary Results, we determined that G Steel and Nakornthai Strip Mill Public Company Limited (‘‘NSM’’), another respondent in this administrative review, became affiliated at the end of the POR, but that the requirements had not been met to collapse the two companies. We need additional time to analyze parties’ comments regarding both of these issues. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for completion of the final results of this review by 60 days to 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results were published. Accordingly, the final results are now due no later than June 4, 2008. E:\FR\FM\07MRN1.SGM 07MRN1
