Huber Corporation. On July 14, 2008, the Department received a request for review from The Aqualon Company, a division of Hercules Incorporated, the sole domestic producer of purified CMC (petitioner). On August 26, 2008, the Department published in the Federal Register the notice of initiation of the 2007–2008 administrative review of purified CMC from Sweden. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 73 FR 50308 (August 26, 2008). Both petitioner and CP Kelco filed their entry of appearance in this administrative review on July 14, 2008, and September 2, 2008, respectively. The Department issued its antidumping duty questionnaire to CP Kelco on September 5, 2008.

Both parties filed the withdrawal requests within the deadline established by section 351.213(d)(1) of the Department’s regulations. No other parties have requested a review of CP Kelco or any other producer or exporter of the subject merchandise. Therefore, we are rescinding the above–cited administrative review in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On June 6, 2008, the Department published the preliminary results 
of the administrative review of the countervailing duty order on 
stainless steel plate in coils from Belgium, covering the period 
January 1, 2006, through December 31, 2006. See Stainless Steel Plate 
in Coils From Belgium: Preliminary Results of Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Review, 73 FR 32303 (June 6, 2008). In the preliminary 
results we stated that we would issue our final results for the 
countervailing duty administrative review no later than 120 days after 
the date of publication of the preliminary results (i.e., October 4, 
2008).

Statutory Time Limits

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') to 
issue the final results of an administrative review within 120 days of 
the publication of the preliminary results. If it is not practicable to 
complete the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Act allows the Department to extend this deadline to a maximum of 180 
days.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

    The Department has determined that completion of the final results 
of this review within the original time period is not practicable 
because we received post-preliminary responses on September 8, 2008. In 
addition, we need to complete a post-preliminary analysis on the sales 
denominator and certain figures in Ugine and ALZ Belgium's financial 
statement and to allow adequate time for interested parties to file 
case and rebuttal briefs. Consequently, it is not practicable to 
complete this review within the originally anticipated time limit 
(i.e., by October 4, 2008). Therefore, the Department is extending the 
time limit for completion of the final results to not later than 
December 3, 2008, which is 180 days from the date of publication of the 
preliminary results, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Act.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: September 18, 2008.
