SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On October 31, 2007, the U.S. Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain lined paper products from the People’s Republic of China, covering the period April 17, 2006 to August 31, 2007. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 72 FR 61621 (October 31, 2007). The preliminary results of this review are currently due no later than June 1, 2008. Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the 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. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act further states that if it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period specified, the administering authority may extend the 245-day period to issue its preliminary results to up to 365 days. We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period is not practicable for the following reasons. The mandatory respondent has complex cost allocation issues which require the Department to gather and analyze a significant amount of information associated with the factors of production and manufacturing costs. In addition, petitioner, Association of American School Paper Suppliers, has raised other issues which require the collection of additional information and has requested that the Department extend the preliminary results to allow more time to analyze these issues. Given the number and complexity of issues in this case and the Department’s resource constraints, and in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 120 days. Therefore, the preliminary results are now due no later than September 29, 2008. The final results continue to be due 120 days after publication of the preliminary results. This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) and 771(i)(1) of the Act. PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Dated: May 30, 2008. Stephan J.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Postponement of Final Determination On October 18, 2007, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) initiated the antidumping duty investigations of polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet, and strip (‘‘PET Film’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’), Brazil, Thailand, and the United Arab Emirates (‘‘UAE’’). See Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and Strip (PET Film) from Brazil, the People’s Republic of China, Thailand, and the United Arab Emirates: Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigations, 72 FR 60801 (October 26, 2007) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). On May 5, 2008, the Department published the Preliminary Determinations in the antidumping duty investigations of PET Film from the PRC, Brazil, and Thailand.1 See Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and Strip from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 73 FR 24552 (May 5, 2008), Notice of Preliminary Determination of Sales at 1 The Department postponed the final determination of the investigation of PET Film from the UAE on May 5, 2008.

The final determinations of the antidumping duty investigations are currently due on July 9, 2008.2 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 Section 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 May 2, 2008, DuPont Teijin Films China Limited, the sole active mandatory respondent in the PRC investigation, along with its affiliates DuPont Teijin Hongji Films Ningbo Co., Ltd., and DuPont–Hongji Films Foshan Co., Ltd., and Terphane Ltda., the sole mandatory respondent in the Brazil investigation, requested extension of the final determinations and extension of the provisional measures.3 Thus, because the preliminary determinations in the PRC and Brazil investigations are affirmative, and the respondents requesting extension of the final determinations and extension of the provisional measures account for significant proportions of exports of the subject merchandise, and no compelling reasons for denial exist, we are extending the due date for the final determination in the PRC and Brazil investigations to no later than 135 days after the date of the publication of the preliminary determination. On May 2, 2008, DuPont Teijin Films, Mitsubishi Polyester Film of America, Inc., SKC, Inc. and Toray Plastics (America), Inc. (collectively, ‘‘petitioners’’), requested an extension of the final determination in the Thailand investigation. Thus, as the request for extension in the Thailand investigation was made by petitioners because the preliminary determination in the Thailand investigation is negative, and no compelling reasons for denial exist, we are extending the due date for the final determination in the Thailand investigation to no later than 135 days after the date of the publication of the preliminary determination. For the reasons identified above, we are postponing the final determinations in the PRC, Brazil, and Thailand investigations until September 17, 2008. This notice is issued and published pursuant to sections 777(i) and 735(a)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(g). Dated: May 29, 2008. David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Postponement of Final Determination

    On October 18, 2007, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
initiated the antidumping duty investigations of polyethylene 
terephthalate film, sheet, and strip (``PET Film'') from the People's 
Republic of China (``PRC''), Brazil, Thailand, and the United Arab 
Emirates (``UAE''). See Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and 
Strip (PET Film) from Brazil, the People's Republic of China, Thailand, 
and the United Arab Emirates: Initiation of Antidumping Duty 
Investigations, 72 FR 60801 (October 26, 2007) (``Initiation Notice''). 
On May 5, 2008, the Department published the Preliminary Determinations 
in the antidumping duty investigations of PET Film from the PRC, 
Brazil, and Thailand.\1\ See Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, 
and Strip from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 73 FR 24552 (May 5, 
2008), Notice of Preliminary Determination of Sales at

[[Page 31965]]

Less Than Fair Value: Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and Strip 
from Brazil, 73 FR 24560 (May 5, 2008), and Notice of Preliminary 
Determination of Sales at Not Less Than Fair Value: Polyethylene 
Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and Strip from Thailand, 73 FR 24565 (May 5, 
2008) (collectively, ``Preliminary Determinations''). The final 
determinations of the antidumping duty investigations are currently due 
on July 9, 2008.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Department postponed the final determination of the 
investigation of PET Film from the UAE on May 5, 2008. See 
Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and Strip from the United 
Arab Emirates: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair 
Value and Postponement of Final Determination, 73 FR 24547 (May 5, 
2008).
    \2\ The Department inadvertently stated in the PRC preliminary 
determination that it would make its final determination no later 
than 75 days after the date of publication of the preliminary 
determination, instead of no later than 75 days after the date of 
the 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 
Section 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 May 2, 2008, DuPont Teijin Films China Limited, the sole active 
mandatory respondent in the PRC investigation, along with its 
affiliates DuPont Teijin Hongji Films Ningbo Co., Ltd., and DuPont-
Hongji Films Foshan Co., Ltd., and Terphane Ltda., the sole mandatory 
respondent in the Brazil investigation, requested extension of the 
final determinations and extension of the provisional measures.\3\ 
Thus, because the preliminary determinations in the PRC and Brazil 
investigations are affirmative, and the respondents requesting 
extension of the final determinations and extension of the provisional 
measures account for significant proportions of exports of the subject 
merchandise, and no compelling reasons for denial exist, we are 
extending the due date for the final determination in the PRC and 
Brazil investigations to no later than 135 days after the date of the 
publication of the preliminary determination.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Terphane Ltda.'s original request did not mention its 
agreement to the extension of provisional measures, as required by 
19 CFR 351.210(e)(2) . However, on May 19, 2008, Terphane Ltda. 
submitted a letter agreeing to the extension of the provisional 
measures.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On May 2, 2008, DuPont Teijin Films, Mitsubishi Polyester Film of 
America, Inc., SKC, Inc. and Toray Plastics (America), Inc. 
(collectively, ``petitioners''), requested an extension of the final 
determination in the Thailand investigation. Thus, as the request for 
extension in the Thailand investigation was made by petitioners because 
the preliminary determination in the Thailand investigation is 
negative, and no compelling reasons for denial exist, we are extending 
the due date for the final determination in the Thailand investigation 
to no later than 135 days after the date of the publication of the 
preliminary determination.
    For the reasons identified above, we are postponing the final 
determinations in the PRC, Brazil, and Thailand investigations until 
September 17, 2008.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to sections 777(i) and 
735(a)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(g).
