The current deadline for the final results of this review is August 5, 2008. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review Certain Activated Carbon From the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to issue the final results in an administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results were 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 limit for the final results up to 180 days from the date of publication of the preliminary results. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the review within the original time frame due to the further analysis required in this case. In particular, the Department requested further information on Saha Thai’s claim for a duty drawback adjustment, and the Department must consider Saha Thai’s response, which was received after the issuance of the preliminary results. Therefore, completion of this review is not practicable by the original due date of August 5, 2008. Consequently, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department’s regulations, the Department is extending the time limit for the completion of the final results of the review for an additional 60 days. Since the 60–day extension would result in the deadline for the final results falling on October 4, 2008, which is a Saturday, the new deadline for the final results will be the next business day, October 6, 2008. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ‘‘Next Business Day’’ Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).

Partial Rescission

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. The 
Petitioners' request has fallen within the 90-day period, and thus, is 
timely. Because the Petitioners' withdrawal of requests for review is

aforementioned companies, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we 
are rescinding this review with respect to the above listed companies.

Assessment Rates

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection

[[Page 42551]]

to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For those 
companies for which this review has been rescinded and which have a 
separate rate, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to 
the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time 
of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance

of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a 
certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to 
liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure 
to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary's

the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues 
to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of 
APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO 
is a violation which is subject to sanction.
