SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On June 6, 2008, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published the preliminary results of the new shipper reviews of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from the People’s Republic of China, covering the period January 1, 2007, through July 1, 2007, and the following exporters: Dongguan Mu Si Furniture Co., Ltd.

The Department may, however, extend the 90-day period for completion of the final results of a new shipper review to 150 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). As a result of issues raised in these new shipper reviews, specifically Mu Si and Petitioners have raised multiple issues with regard to certain consumption factor(s), average unit values of certain surrogate values, and conversion factors in their respective case briefs, the Department determines that these new shipper reviews are extraordinarily complicated and it cannot complete these new shipper reviews within the current time limit. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for the completion of the final results by 60 days until October 24, 2008, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2).

Postponement of Final Determination

    On January 22, 2008, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
initiated

[[Page 50933]]

the antidumping duty investigation of uncovered innersprings units 
(``innersprings'') from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). See 
Uncovered Innerspring Units From the People's Republic of China, South 
Africa, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Initiation of 
Antidumping Duty Investigations, 73 FR 4817 (January 28, 2008) 
(``Initiation Notice''). On August 6, 2008, the Department published 
the Preliminary Determination in the antidumping duty investigation of 
innersprings from the PRC. See Uncovered Innerspring Units from the 
People's Republic of China: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less 
Than Fair Value, 73 FR 45729 (August 6, 2008) (``Preliminary 
Determination''). The Preliminary Determination stated that the 
Department would make its final determination for this antidumping duty 
investigation no later than 75 days after the date of the preliminary 
determination.
    Section 735(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, (``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 19 CFR 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 August 12, 2008, Nanhai Animal By-Products Imp. & Exp. Co., Ltd. 
(``Nanhai Animal'') and Foshan Jingxin Steel Wire & Spring Co., Ltd. 
(``Foshan Jingxin'')\1\ requested a 60-day extension of the final 
determination and extension of the provisional measures. Thus, because 
our preliminary determination is affirmative, and the respondents 
requesting an extension of the final determination and an extension of 
the provisional measures account for a significant proportion of 
exports of the subject merchandise, and no compelling reasons for 
denial exist, we are extending the due date for the final determination 
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 determination from October 13, 2008, until 
December 19, 2008.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ In the Preliminary Determination, the Department determined 
that Foshan Jingxin should be considered the seller of the subject 
merchandise for purposes of calculating a dumping margin, and 
changed the designation of the mandatory respondent to Foshan 
Jingxin from Nanhai Animal. See Preliminary Determination 73 FR at 
45732.

    This notice is issued and published pursuant to sections 777(i) and 
735(a)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(g).
