Background The antidumping duty order on certain steel nails from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) was published in the Federal Register on August 1, 2008. See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Steel Nails From the People’s Republic of China, 73 FR 44961 (August 1, 2008). On August 27, 2010, we received a timely request for a new shipper review from Shanghai Colour Co., Ltd. (‘‘Shanghai Colour’’) in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(c) and 351.214(d)(2). On October 4, 2010, the Department published a notice of initiation of the new shipper review of certain steel nails from the PRC covering the period of August 1, 2009, through July 31, 2010. See Certain Steel Nails from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 75 FR 61132 (October 4, 2010). The preliminary results are currently due no later than March 27, 2011. Statutory Time Limits Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’), provides that the Department will issue the preliminary results of a new shipper review of an antidumping duty order within 180 days after the day on which the review was initiated.

The Act further provides that the Department may extend that 180-day period to 300 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated. See also 19 CFR 351.214 (i)(2). Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results The Department determines that this new shipper review involves extraordinarily complicated methodological issues, including Shanghai Colour’s multiple production stages for subject merchandise and the need to evaluate the bona fide nature of Shanghai Colour’s sales. The Department finds that these extraordinarily complicated issues require additional time to evaluate. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2), the Department is extending the time limit for the preliminary results by 120 days, until no later than July 25, 2011. The final results continue to be due 90 days after the publication of the preliminary results.

(‘‘Green Packing’’), and Tianjin Wanhua Co., Ltd. (‘‘Wanhua’’) (collectively, ‘‘Respondents’’), sold subject merchandise at less than normal value during the period of review (‘‘POR’’), November 6, 2008, through October 31, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background As noted above, on August 16, 2010, the Department published the Preliminary Results of this administrative review. Between September 28, 2010 and October 5, 2010, we received case and rebuttal briefs from Petitioners 2 and Respondents. On September 28, 2010, we also received written arguments from Bemis Company, Inc., an industrial user of PET film. On October 18, 2010, the Department placed a revised wage rate calculation on the record for comment. Between October 26, 2010 and November 1, 2010, we received comments and rebuttal comments from Petitioners and Respondents regarding the revised wage rate calculation. On November 15, 2010, the Department published a notice extending the time period for issuing the final results by 60 days to February 14, 2011.3 On November 22, 2010, the Department held a public hearing of the arguments presented in the interested parties’ submissions. 75 FR 49893 (August 16, 2010) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). 2 DuPont Teijin Films, Mitsubishi Polyester Film, Inc., SKC, Inc., and Toray Plastics (America), Inc.

A list of the issues which parties raised, and to which we respond in the I&D Memo, is attached to this notice as an Appendix. The I&D Memo is a public document and is on file in the Central Records Unit (‘‘CRU’’), Main Commerce Building, Room 7046, and is accessible on the Department’s Web site at http://www.trade.gov/ia. The paper copy and electronic version of the memorandum are identical in content. Final Partial Rescission of Administrative Review In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily rescinded the administrative review with respect to Sichuan Dongfang Insulating Material Co., Ltd. (‘‘Dongfang’’). Dongfang reported that it had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.4 As we stated in the Preliminary Results, our examination of shipment data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) for Dongfang confirmed that there were no entries of subject merchandise from Dongfang during the POR. 5 We also received no comments or information to change our preliminary rescission. Therefore, we are rescinding this administrative review with respect to Dongfang. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record, as well as comments received from parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we have made revisions to Respondents’ margin calculations for the final results.6 Pursuant to a recent decision 4 See Preliminary Results, 75 FR at 49894. 5 Id. 6 In the Preliminary Results, the Department stated that it had ‘‘valued electricity using rates for large industries at 33 Kilo Volts, as published by the Central Electricity Authority of the Government of India in ‘Electricity Tariff & Duty and Average Rates of Electricity Supply in India,’ dated March 2008.’’ See Preliminary Results, 75 FR at 49898. This statement in the Federal Register notice was an error, as the Department had actually averaged all tax-exclusive rates for electricity for small, medium, and large industries as published in the abovementioned report.

Background

    The antidumping duty order on certain steel nails from the People's 
Republic of China (``PRC'') was published in the Federal Register on 
August 1, 2008. See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Steel 
Nails From the People's Republic of China, 73 FR 44961 (August 1, 
2008). On August 27, 2010, we received a timely request for a new 
shipper review from Shanghai Colour Co., Ltd. (``Shanghai Colour'') in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(c) and 351.214(d)(2). On October 4, 
2010, the Department published a notice of initiation of the new 
shipper review of certain steel nails from the PRC covering the period 
of August 1, 2009, through July 31, 2010. See Certain Steel Nails from 
the People's Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New 
Shipper Review, 75 FR 61132 (October 4, 2010). The preliminary results 
are currently due no later than March 27, 2011.

Statutory Time Limits

    Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the

extend that 180-day period to 300 days if it determines that the case 
is extraordinarily complicated. See also 19 CFR 351.214 (i)(2).

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    The Department determines that this new shipper review involves 
extraordinarily complicated methodological issues, including Shanghai 
Colour's multiple production stages for subject merchandise and the 
need to evaluate the bona fide nature of Shanghai Colour's sales. The 
Department finds that these extraordinarily complicated issues require 
additional time to evaluate. Therefore, in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2), the Department is 
extending the time limit for the preliminary results by 120 days, until 
no later than July 25, 2011. The final results continue to be due 90 
days after the publication of the preliminary results.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 777(i) of the Act.
