Ajubesteel also submitted documentation establishing the date on which the subject merchandise was first entered for consumption, the volume shipped, and the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Initiation of New Shipper Review In accordance with section 751 (a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(d), we are initiating a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on Circular Welded Non–Alloy Steel Pipe from Korea (produced and exported) by Ajubesteel.

On August 17, 2006, the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (H.R. 4) was signed into law. Section 1632 of H.R. 4 temporarily suspends the authority of the Department to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect a bond or other security in lieu of a cash deposit in new–shipper reviews. Therefore, the posting of a bond under section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e) in lieu of a cash deposit is not available in this case. Importers of subject merchandise manufactured and exported by Ajubesteel must continue to pay a cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties on each entry of subject merchandise at the current all–others rate of 4.80 percent.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Background On October 31, 2007, the U.S. Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain lined paper products from the People’s Republic of China, covering the period April 17, 2006 to August 31, 2007. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 72 FR 61621 (October 31, 2007). On October 7, 2008, the Department published the preliminary results of this review. See Certain Lined Paper Products from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 58540 (October 7, 2008). The final results of this review are currently due no later than February 4, 2009. Extension of Time Limit of Final Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), requires the Department to issue the final results of a review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the final results to a maximum of 180 days. See also 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this review within the original time limit because several technical issues have arisen. The mandatory respondent and its suppliers have complex cost allocation issues, which require the Department to further clarify and analyze a significant amount of information associated with the factors of production and manufacturing costs. Thus, additional time is necessary to complete the final results. Therefore, the Department is fully extending the final results by 60 days. The final results are now due not later than April 5, 2009. As this date falls on a Sunday, the final results are due April 6, 2009. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ‘‘Next Business Day’’ Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant of the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On October 31, 2007, the U.S. Department of Commerce 
(``Department'') published a notice of initiation of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on certain lined paper products 
from the People's Republic of China, covering the period April 17, 2006 
to August 31, 2007. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Administrative Reviews, 72 FR 61621 (October 31, 2007). On October 
7, 2008, the Department published the preliminary results of this 
review. See Certain Lined Paper Products from the People's Republic of 
China: Notice of Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review, 73 FR 58540 (October 7, 2008). The final results 
of this review are currently due no later than February 4, 2009.

Extension of Time Limit of Final Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``Act''), requires the Department to issue the final results of a 
review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results 
are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review 
within that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the 
Department to extend the time limit for the final results to a maximum 
of 180 days. See also 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final 
results of this review within the original time limit because several 
technical issues have arisen. The mandatory respondent and its 
suppliers have complex cost allocation issues, which require the 
Department to further clarify and analyze a significant amount of 
information associated with the factors of production and manufacturing 
costs. Thus, additional time is necessary to complete the final 
results. Therefore, the Department is fully extending the final results 
by 60 days. The final results are now due not later than April 5, 2009. 
As this date falls on a Sunday, the final results are due April 6, 
2009. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ``Next Business Day'' 
Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant of the Tariff 
Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).
    This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
