On October 8, 2008, the Department selected two mandatory respondents in the above referenced investigation based on section 777(c)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), and determined that it had the resources to fully investigate only the two largest companies, Guandong Wireking Housewares & Hardware Co., Ltd. (‘‘Guandong Wireking’’) and Asber Enterprises Co., Ltd. (China) (‘‘Asber’’), of the six exporters that filed quantity and value responses. See Memorandum to Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, from Julia C. Hancock, Senior International Trade Analyst, Office 9, Subject: Selection of Respondents for the Antidumping Duty Investigation of Certain Kitchen Appliance Shelving and Racks from the People’s Republic of China (October 8, 2008). Additionally, on October 8, 2008, the Department sent its antidumping duty questionnaire to Asber and Guandong Wireking.1 On October 23, 2008, one of the two mandatory respondents, Asber, filed a letter stating that it will not participate as a mandatory respondent in this investigation. On October 31, 2008, in light of Asber’s refusal to participate, Petitioners2 submitted comments requesting that the Department select an additional mandatory respondent. Additionally, on November 7, 2008, and on November 10, 2008, Marmon Retail Services Asia Corporation and New King Shan (Zhu Hai) Co., Ltd. (‘‘New King Shan’’) submitted rebuttal comments arguing that the Department must maintain a consistent position with previous additional respondent selection decisions. On November 19, 2008, the Department selected an additional mandatory respondent, New King Shan, pursuant to section 777(c) of the Act. See Memorandum to James C. Doyle, Office Director, through Catherine Bertrand, Program Manager, from Blaine Wiltse, Case Analyst, and Julia Hancock, 1 See Letter to Asber from Catherine Bertrand, Program Manager, AD/CVD Operations, Office 9, Import Administration regarding the Antidumping Duty Investigation of Certain Kitchen Appliance Shelving and Racks from the People’s Republic of China: Non-Market Economy Questionnaire, dated October 8, 2008. 2 Nashville Wire Products, Inc., SSW Holding Company, Inc., the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, AlliedIndustrial and Service Workers International Union and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, District Lodge 6 (Clinton, IA), collectively known as ‘‘Petitioners’’.

The preliminary determination of this antidumping duty investigation is currently due on January 7, 2009. Statutory Time Limits Pursuant to section 733(c)(1)(B) of the Act, the Department can extend the period for a preliminary determination until not later than 190 days after the date on which the administrative authority initiates an investigation if the Department concludes that the parties concerned are cooperating and determines that: The case is extraordinarily complicated by the reason of (I) the number and complexity of the transactions to be investigated or adjustments to be considered, (II) the novelty of the issues presented, or (III) the number of firms whose activities must be investigated, and (ii) additional time is necessary to make the preliminary determination. Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Determination The Department finds that all concerned parties, with the exception of Asber, are cooperating in this case, pursuant to section 733(c)(1)(B) of the Act. Additionally, the Department finds that this investigation is extraordinarily complicated, pursuant to section 733(c)(1)(B)(i) of the Act. Specifically, as requested by Petitioners, the Department selected an additional mandatory respondent and the Department requires additional time to gather information from this additional mandatory respondent. Further, the Department requires additional time to gather more information from all mandatory respondents regarding the sales process, affiliations, establishing the proper date of sale, surrogate values for all factors of production, and the methodology used to report factors of production. Moreover, the Department requires additional time to evaluate the separate rate applications. Finally, the Department has not yet received all 3 Although Petitioners submitted surrebuttal comments regarding the selection of an additional mandatory respondent on November 19, 2008, the Department did not consider these comments because they were submitted after the Department had selected the additional mandatory respondent.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The purpose of this information collection is to obtain socioeconomic information in the Flower Gardens Bank National Marine Sanctuary (FGBNMS). The FGBNMS is in the process of revising its management plan, and two issues have emerged as top priorities: (1) boundary expansion and (2) research only area. Information is required to assess the potential socioeconomic impacts of boundary expansion and research only area alternatives. The study involves surveys of seven different user group/stakeholders: commercial fishing operations, recreational charter/party boat operations, private households that participate in recreational fishing, dive charter/guide operations, private households that participate in SCUBA diving, and oil and gas operations. Information will be collected on spatial use for all user groups to assess the extent of potential displacement of activity from either a proposed boundary expansion alternative or a research only area alternative. For business operations, costs and earnings will be obtained to assess the impact of regulatory alternatives on business profits. Socioeconomic/ demographic information on owners/ operators and number of employees and family members of owners/operators will also be obtained. For members of households that participate in recreational fishing or recreational SCUBA diving, information will be collected on socioeconomic/ demographic profiles, spending associated with their activity, economic user value associated with their activity, and knowledge, attitudes and perceptions about FGBNMS management strategies and regulations. 78723 Affected Public: Individuals or households; business or other for-profit organizations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 360. Estimated Time per Response: Commercial fishing operations, 2 hours; recreational fishing charter/party boat operations, 2 hours; members of private households participating in recreational activities, 30 minutes; dive charter/ guide operations, 2 hours; and oil and gas operations, 2 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 270. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0. IV. Request for Comments Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
