SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Postponement of Preliminary Determination On June 25, 2009, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) initiated an antidumping duty investigation on certain steel grating from the People’s Republic of China.1 The notice of initiation stated that, unless postponed, the Department would issue its preliminary determination no later than 140 days after the date of issuance of the initiation, in accordance with section 733(b)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). The preliminary determination is currently due no later than November 5, 2009. As discussed below, we have determined that this investigation is extraordinarily complicated within the meaning of section 733(c)(1)(B)(i)(II) of the Act.

In the investigation of certain steel grating, one of the respondents has submitted a novel reporting methodology for its U.S. sales, and the Department may require additional information from the respondent in order to obtain complete and appropriate data on the record to calculate an accurate dumping margin with respect to the respondent’s U.S. sales. The Department can only complete its analysis and gather all of the necessary information by postponing the preliminary determination. Therefore, it is the Department’s decision to postpone the current preliminary determination so that all of the issues currently under investigation at this time can be 1 See Certain Steel Grating from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigation, 74 FR 30273 (June 25, 2009) E:\FR\FM\22OCN1.SGM 22OCN1 54536 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 203 / Thursday, October 22, 2009 / Notices addressed in the most complete manner possible.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: dcolon on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES Background On June 2, 2009, the Department published in the Federal Register the preliminary determination of sales at LTFV in the antidumping duty investigation of commodity matchbooks from India. See Commodity Matchbooks from India: Notice of Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of Final Determination, 74 FR 26366 (June 2, 2009) (Preliminary Determination). VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:13 Oct 21, 2009 Jkt 220001 In June 2009, we verified the questionnaire responses of the sole respondent in this case, Triveni Safety Matches Pvt. Ltd. (Triveni), in accordance with section 782(i) of the Act. Although we provided interested parties an opportunity to comment on the Preliminary Determination and the Department’s verification findings, no interested party submitted a case brief. Period of Investigation The period of investigation is October 1, 2007, through September 30, 2008. This period corresponds to the four most recent fiscal quarters prior to the month of the filing of the petition. Scope of Investigation The scope of this investigation covers commodity matchbooks, also known as commodity book matches, paper matches or booklet matches.1 Commodity matchbooks typically, but do not necessarily, consist of twenty match stems which are usually made from paperboard or similar material tipped with a match head composed of any chemical formula. The match stems may be stitched, stapled, or otherwise fastened into a matchbook cover of any material, on which a striking strip composed of any chemical formula has been applied to assist in the ignition process. Commodity matchbooks included in the scope of this investigation may or may not contain printing. For example, they may have no printing other than the identification of the manufacturer or importer. Commodity matchbooks may also be printed with a generic message such as ‘‘Thank You’’ or a generic image such as the American Flag, with store brands (e.g., Kroger, 7–Eleven, Shurfine or Giant); product brands for national or regional advertisers such as cigarettes or alcoholic beverages; or with corporate brands for national or regional distributors (e.g., Penley Corp. or Diamond Brands). They all enter retail distribution channels. Regardless of the materials used for the stems of the matches and regardless of the way the match stems are fastened to the matchbook cover, all commodity matchbooks are included in the scope of this investigation. All matchbooks, including commodity matchbooks, typically comply with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission 1 Such commodity matchbooks are also referred to as ‘‘for resale’’ because they always enter into retail channels, meaning businesses that sell a general variety of tangible merchandise, e.g., convenience stores, supermarkets, dollar stores, drug stores and mass merchandisers. PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (CPSC) Safety Standard for Matchbooks, codified at 16 CFR § 1202.1 et seq. The scope of this investigation excludes promotional matchbooks, often referred to as ‘‘not for resale,’’ or ‘‘specialty advertising’’ matchbooks, as they do not enter into retail channels and are sold to businesses that provide hospitality, dining, drinking or entertainment services to their customers, and are given away by these businesses as promotional items. Such promotional matchbooks are distinguished by the physical characteristic of having the name and/ or logo of a bar, restaurant, resort, hotel, ´ club, cafe/coffee shop, grill, pub, eatery, lounge, casino, barbecue or individual establishment printed prominently on the matchbook cover. Promotional matchbook cover printing also typically includes the address and the phone number of the business or establishment being promoted.2 Also excluded are all other matches that are not fastened into a matchbook cover such as wooden matches, stick matches, box matches, kitchen matches, pocket matches, penny matches, household matches, strike– anywhere matches (aka ‘‘SAW’’ matches), strike–on-box matches (aka ‘‘SOB’’ matches), fireplace matches, barbeque/grill matches, fire starters, and wax matches. The merchandise subject to this investigation is properly classified under subheading 3605.00.0060 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Subject merchandise may also enter under subheading 3605.00.0030 of the HTSUS. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under investigation is dispositive. Changes Since the Preliminary Determination Based on our findings at verification, we have made certain changes to the margin calculations for Triveni. For a discussion of these changes, see the October 15, 2009, memorandum from Holly Phelps, Analyst, to the File, entitled, ‘‘Calculations Performed for Triveni Safety Matches Pvt. Ltd. for the Final Determination in the 2007–2008 2 The gross distinctions between commodity matchbooks and promotional matchbooks may be summarized as follows: (1) if it has no printing, or is printed with a generic message such as ‘‘Thank You’’ or a generic image such as the American Flag, or printed with national or regional store brands or corporate brands, it is commodity; (2) if it has printing, and the printing includes the name of a ´ bar, restaurant, resort, hotel, club, cafe/coffee shop, grill, pub, eatery, lounge, casino, barbecue, or individual establishment prominently displayed on the matchbook cover, it is promotional.
