Extension of Time Limits for the Preliminary Results of the Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Review and New Shipper Reviews

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

DATES: Effective Date: October 6, 2008.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Paul Stolz, AD/CVD Operations, Office 
8, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-4474.

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, 2008, the 
Department published in the Federal Register a notice of the initiation 
of the antidumping duty administrative review of WBF from the PRC and 
new shipper reviews for the period January 1, 2007 through December 31, 
2007. See Notice of Initiation of Administrative Review of the 
Antidumping Duty Order on Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's 
Republic of China, 73 FR 12387 (March 7, 2008) and Wooden Bedroom 
Furniture from the People's Republic of China: Initiation of New 
Shipper Reviews, 73 FR 12392 (March 7, 2008). On August 22, 2008, the 
Department aligned the deadlines and the time limits of the new shipper 
reviews of WBF with the 2007 administrative review of WBF. See 
Memorandum to the File ``Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's 
Republic of China: Alignment of the 1/1/2007-12/31/2007 Annual 
Administrative Review and the 1/1/2007-12/31/2007 New Shipper Review,'' 
dated August 22, 2008. The preliminary results of these reviews are 
currently due no later than October 2, 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. 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 365 days. Completion of the preliminary 
results of these reviews within the 245-day period is not practicable 
because the Department needs additional time to analyze information 
pertaining to the respondents' sales practices, factors of production, 
and corporate relationships, and to issue and review responses to 
supplemental questionnaires.
    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 preliminary results of review to 365 days until January 
30, 2009, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. The final 
results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the 
preliminary results.
    This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a) and 777(i) of 
the Act.

     Dated: September 29, 2008.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
