On March 31, 2008, the ITC determined, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the AD order on persulfates from the PRC would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. See USITC Publication 3988 Inv. No. 731–TA- 749 (Review) (March 2007). Department intends to initiate the next five–year review of this order not later than March 2013.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect antidumping duty cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise. This review covers imports from all manufacturers and exporters of persulfates from the PRC.

Background

    On August 6, 2004, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published in the Federal Register an antidumping duty order on floor 
standing, metal-top ironing tables and parts thereof from the People's 
Republic of China (``PRC''). See Notice of Amended Final Determination 
of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Floor-
Standing, Metal-Top Ironing Tables and Certain Parts Thereof From the 
People's Republic of China, 69 FR 47868 (August 6, 2004). The 
Department received timely requests from Since Hardware (Guangzhou) 
Co., Ltd. (``Since Hardware'') and Forever Holdings Limited (``Forever 
Holdings''), in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(2), for an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on ironing tables 
and parts thereof from the PRC, which has an August annual anniversary 
month. Home Products International Inc., the petitioner, also 
requested, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(1), an administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on ironing tables and parts 
thereof from the PRC for Since Hardware. On September 25, 2007, the 
Department initiated an administrative review with respect to Since 
Hardware and Forever Holdings. See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 72 FR 54428 (September 25, 
2007).
    The deadline for completion of the preliminary results in the 
administrative review for Since Hardware and Forever Holdings is 
currently May 2, 2008.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the

require the Department to issue the preliminary results of an 
administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of the order or suspension agreement for which the 
administrative review was requested, and the final results of the 
review within 120 days after the date on which the notice of the 
preliminary results was published in the Federal Register. However, if 
the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the 
review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 
section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department's regulations allow the 
Department to extend the 245-day period to 365 days and the 120-day 
period to 180 days.
    Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h) 
of the Department's regulations, we determine that it is not 
practicable to complete this administrative review within the statutory 
time limit of 245 days. The Department requires additional time to 
analyze questionnaire responses, and issue supplemental questionnaires. 
In particular, there are complex factors of production methodology 
issues that the Department requires additional time to analyze.

is extending the time limit for the completion of these preliminary
