SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is extending the time limit for the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on purified carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) from the Netherlands. The period of review is July 1, 2008, through June 30, 2009. This extension is made pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). EFFECTIVE DATE: March 30, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On August 25, 2009, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on purified CMC from the Netherlands. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 42873 (August 25, 2009). This review covers the period July 1, 2008, through June 30, 2009. The PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 preliminary results for this administrative review were scheduled for April 2, 2010. As explained in the memorandum from the Deputy Assistant Secretary (DAS) for Import Administration, the Department has exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from February 5, through February 12, 2010. Thus, all deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by seven days. The revised deadline for the preliminary results of the administrative review of purified CMC from the Netherlands became April 9, 2010. See Memorandum to the Record from Ronald Lorentzen, DAS for Import Administration, regarding ‘‘Tolling of Administrative Deadlines As a Result of the Government Closure During the Recent Snowstorm,’’ dated February 12, 2010. Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act requires the Department to complete the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. 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 245 day time period for the preliminary results up to 365 days. The Department has determined it is not practicable to complete this review within the statutory time limit because we require additional time to conduct a sales below–cost investigation of respondent Akzo Nobel Functional Chemicals B.V. (ANFC) and to collect and analyze additional information needed for our preliminary results (e.g., information regarding ANFC as succesor–in-interest of Akzo Nobel Surface Chemistry B.V. and respondent CP Kelco B.V.’s factoring expenses and freight revenue). Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limits for completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review until no later than July 31, 2010, which is 365 days from the last day of the anniversary month of this order. Because July 31, 2010, falls on Saturday, the new deadline for the final results will be next business day, Monday, August 2, 2010.

The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a– 81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on March 24, 2010. The Grundfos facility (15 employees, 7.4 acres, capacity—20,000 pumps annually) is located at 2200 Hangar Place, Allentown, Pennsylvania. The facility is used for the manufacture and assembly of multi-stage centrifugal pumps used in commercial, residential, heating/ventilation, and waste water applications. Components and materials sourced from abroad (representing 65% of the value of the finished pumps) include: Pump parts, electric motors, plastic closures and o-rings, rubber orings and gaskets, labels, pipe fittings, fasteners, motor couplings, and paper gaskets (duty rates range from free to 8.5 percent). FTZ procedures could exempt Grundfos from customs duty payments on the foreign components used in export production. The company anticipates that some 20 percent of the plant’s shipments will be exported. On its domestic sales, Grundfos would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to finished centrifugal pumps (duty free) VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:22 Mar 29, 2010 Jkt 220001 for the foreign inputs noted above. FTZ designation would further allow Grundfos to realize logistical benefits through the use of weekly customs entry procedures. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign status production equipment. The request indicates that the savings from FTZ procedures would help improve the plant’s international competitiveness. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Pierre Duy of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and information presented in the application and case record and to report findings and recommendations to the Board. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is June 1, 2010. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to June 14, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 25, 2009, the Department published in the Federal 
Register a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on purified CMC from the Netherlands. See 
Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 42873 (August 25, 
2009). This review covers the period July 1, 2008, through June 30, 
2009. The preliminary results for this administrative review were 
scheduled for April 2, 2010. As explained in the memorandum from the 
Deputy Assistant Secretary (DAS) for Import Administration, the 
Department has exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the 
duration of the closure of the Federal Government from February 5, 
through February 12, 2010. Thus, all deadlines in this segment of the 
proceeding have been extended by seven days. The revised deadline for 
the preliminary results of the administrative review of purified CMC 
from the Netherlands became April 9, 2010. See Memorandum to the Record 
from Ronald Lorentzen, DAS for Import Administration, regarding 
``Tolling of Administrative Deadlines As a Result of the Government 
Closure During the Recent Snowstorm,'' dated February 12, 2010.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act requires the Department to complete 
the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days 
after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a 
review is requested. 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 245 day time period for the preliminary 
results up to 365 days.
    The Department has determined it is not practicable to complete 
this review within the statutory time limit because we require 
additional time to conduct a sales below-cost investigation of 
respondent Akzo Nobel Functional Chemicals B.V. (ANFC) and to collect 
and analyze additional information needed for our preliminary results 
(e.g., information regarding ANFC as succesor-in-interest of Akzo Nobel 
Surface Chemistry B.V. and respondent CP Kelco B.V.'s factoring 
expenses and freight revenue). Accordingly, the Department is extending 
the time limits for completion of the preliminary results of this 
administrative review until no later than July 31, 2010, which is 365 
days from the last day of the anniversary month of this order. Because 
July 31, 2010, falls on Saturday, the new deadline for the final 
results will be next business day, Monday, August 2, 2010. See Notice 
of Clarification: Application of ``Next Business Day'' Rule for 
Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 
1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). We intend to issue the 
final results in this review no
