Therefore, the Department is fully extending the time limit for completion of the final results of the administrative review. The final results are now due no later than November 3, 2008, the next business day after 180 days from publication of the preliminary results.

Background

    The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') published an 
antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture (``WBF'') from the 
People's Republic of China (``PRC'') on January 4, 2005. See Notice of 
Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and 
Antidumping Duty Order: Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's 
Republic of China, 70 FR 329 (January 4, 2005). On March 7, 2007, the 
Department published in the Federal Register a notice of the initiation 
of the antidumping duty administrative review and new shipper reviews 
of WBF from the PRC for the period January 1, 2006, through December 
31, 2006. See Initiation of Administrative Review of Antidumping Duty 
Order on Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic of China, 
72 FR 10159 (March 7, 2007) and Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the 
People's Republic of China: Initiation of New Shipper Reviews, 72 FR 
10158 (March 7, 2007) (``Initiation of Third Annual New Shipper 
Reviews''). On February 13, 2008, the Department published in the 
Federal Register the preliminary results of the second administrative 
review and the new shipper reviews. See Wooden Bedroom Furniture from 
the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review, Preliminary Results of New Shipper Reviews and 
Notice of Partial Rescission, 73 FR 8273 (February 13, 2008). The final 
results of the administrative and new shipper reviews are currently due 
no later than June 12, 2008.

Extension of Time Limit of Final Results.

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue 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 time period to a maximum of 180 days. Completion of the final 
results of these reviews within the 120-day period is not practicable 
because the Department conducted verification in the administrative 
review after publication of the preliminary results, and, therefore, 
needs additional time to complete verification reports, provide an 
opportunity for, and analyze, comments by interested parties on the 
preliminary results and verification reports, and analyze information 
gathered at verification.
    Because it is not practicable to complete these reviews within the 
time specified under the Act, we are fully extending the time period 
for issuing the final results of the administrative and new shipper 
reviews in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Therefore, 
the final results are due no later than August 11, 2008, which is 180 
days from publication of the preliminary results. This notice is 
published pursuant to sections 751(a) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: June 9, 2008.

Deputy Assistant Secretaryfor Import Administration.
