SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Background On January 28, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register the initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on hand trucks and certain parts thereof from the People’s Republic of China, covering the period December 1, 2009, to November 30, 2010. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 76 FR 5137 (January 28, 2011). The current deadline for the preliminary results of this review is September 2, 2011. Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to this antidumping duty order consists of hand trucks manufactured from any material, whether assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, suitable for any use, and certain parts thereof, namely the vertical frame, the handling area and the projecting edges or toe plate, and any combination thereof. A complete or fully assembled hand truck is a hand-propelled barrow consisting of a vertically disposed frame having a handle or more than one handle at or near the upper section of the vertical frame; at least two wheels at or near the lower section of the vertical frame; and a horizontal projecting edge or edges, or toe plate, perpendicular or angled to the vertical frame, at or near the lower section of the vertical frame. The projecting edge or edges, or toe plate, slides under a load for purposes of lifting and/or moving the load. That the vertical frame can be converted from a vertical setting to a horizontal setting, then operated in that horizontal setting as a platform, is not a basis for exclusion of the hand truck from the scope of this petition. That the vertical frame, handling area, wheels, projecting edges or other parts of the hand truck can be collapsed or folded is not a basis for exclusion of the hand truck from the scope of the petition. That other wheels may be connected to the vertical frame, handling area, projecting edges, or other parts of the hand truck, in addition to the two or E:\FR\FM\06SEN1.SGM 06SEN1 55012 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 172 / Tuesday, September 6, 2011 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES more wheels located at or near the lower section of the vertical frame, is not a basis for exclusion of the hand truck from the scope of the petition. Finally, that the hand truck may exhibit physical characteristics in addition to the vertical frame, the handling area, the projecting edges or toe plate, and the two wheels at or near the lower section of the vertical frame, is not a basis for exclusion of the hand truck from the scope of the petition. Examples of names commonly used to reference hand trucks are hand truck, convertible hand truck, appliance hand truck, cylinder hand truck, bag truck, dolly, or hand trolley. They are typically imported under heading 8716.80.50.10 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), although they may also be imported under heading 8716.80.50.90. Specific parts of a hand truck, namely the vertical frame, the handling area and the projecting edges or toe plate, or any combination thereof, are typically imported under heading 8716.90.50.60 of the HTSUS. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the Department’s written description of the scope is dispositive. Excluded from the scope are small two-wheel or four-wheel utility carts specifically designed for carrying loads like personal bags or luggage in which the frame is made from telescoping tubular materials measuring less than 5⁄8 inch in diameter; hand trucks that use motorized operations either to move the hand truck from one location to the next or to assist in the lifting of items placed on the hand truck; vertical carriers designed specifically to transport golf bags; and wheels and tires used in the manufacture of hand trucks. Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results of Review Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires that the Department 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 time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the original time frame because comments from interested parties have necessitated the solicitation and subsequent analysis of VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:00 Sep 02, 2011 Jkt 223001 additional information from the respondent, New-Tec Integration (Xiamen) Co., Ltd. This additional information covers a wide range of issues and is extensive. The Department requires additional time to gather and analyze the additional information. Thus, the Department finds it is not practicable to complete this review within the original time limit (i.e., September 2, 2011). Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review by 120 days (i.e., until January 3, 2012),1 in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). We intend to issue the final results no later than 120 days after publication of the preliminary results notice. This extension is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: August 30, 2011. Susan H.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Case History On March 30, 2011, the Department received a countervailing duty (CVD) petition concerning imports of steel wheels from the PRC filed in proper form by Accuride Corporation (Accuride) and Hayes Lemmerz International, Inc. (collectively, petitioners).1 This investigation was initiated on April 19, 2011. See Certain Steel Wheels From the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 76 FR 23302 (April 26, 2011) (Initiation Notice), and accompanying Initiation Checklist. In the Initiation Notice, the Department stated that it intended to rely on data from U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) for purposes of selecting the mandatory respondents. See Initiation Notice, 76 FR at 23304. On April 20, 2011, the Department released the results of a query performed on the CBP’s database for calendar year 2010. See Memorandum to the File from Robert Copyak, Senior Financial Analyst, AD/CVD Operations, Office 3, regarding ‘‘Release of Query Results of Customs and Border Patrol Database’’ (April 20, 2011). Due to the large number of producers and exporters of steel wheels in the PRC, we determined that it was not practicable to individually investigate each producer and/or exporter. We, therefore, selected the following three producers and/or exporters of steel wheels to be mandatory respondents: Jiangsu Yuantong Auto Parts Co., Ltd. (Yuantong), Zhejiang Jinfei Machinery Group Co. Ltd. (Zhejiang Jinfei), and Zhejiang Jingu Automobile Components (Zhejiang Jingu),2 the largest publicly identifiable producers and/or exporters of the subject merchandise.3 See 1 See Petition for the Imposition of Countervailing Duties (Petition). A public version of the Petition and all other public documents and public versions for this investigation are available on the public file in the Central Records Unit (CRU), Room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building. 2 We use the term Jingu Companies to refer collectively to Zhejiang Jingu and its cross-owned affiliates under examination in this investigation. 3 The companies are listed in alphabetical order and not listed based on export value/volume.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On January 28, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published in the Federal Register the initiation of administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on hand trucks and certain parts 
thereof from the People's Republic of China, covering the period 
December 1, 2009, to November 30, 2010. See Initiation of Antidumping 
and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 76 FR 5137 (January 28, 
2011). The current deadline for the preliminary results of this review 
is September 2, 2011.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to this antidumping duty order consists of 
hand trucks manufactured from any material, whether assembled or 
unassembled, complete or incomplete, suitable for any use, and certain 
parts thereof, namely the vertical frame, the handling area and the 
projecting edges or toe plate, and any combination thereof. A complete 
or fully assembled hand truck is a hand-propelled barrow consisting of 
a vertically disposed frame having a handle or more than one handle at 
or near the upper section of the vertical frame; at least two wheels at 
or near the lower section of the vertical frame; and a horizontal 
projecting edge or edges, or toe plate, perpendicular or angled to the 
vertical frame, at or near the lower section of the vertical frame. The 
projecting edge or edges, or toe plate, slides under a load for 
purposes of lifting and/or moving the load.
    That the vertical frame can be converted from a vertical setting to 
a horizontal setting, then operated in that horizontal setting as a 
platform, is not a basis for exclusion of the hand truck from the scope 
of this petition. That the vertical frame, handling area, wheels, 
projecting edges or other parts of the hand truck can be collapsed or 
folded is not a basis for exclusion of the hand truck from the scope of 
the petition. That other wheels may be connected to the vertical frame, 
handling area, projecting edges, or other parts of the hand truck, in 
addition to the two or

[[Page 55012]]

more wheels located at or near the lower section of the vertical frame, 
is not a basis for exclusion of the hand truck from the scope of the 
petition. Finally, that the hand truck may exhibit physical 
characteristics in addition to the vertical frame, the handling area, 
the projecting edges or toe plate, and the two wheels at or near the 
lower section of the vertical frame, is not a basis for exclusion of 
the hand truck from the scope of the petition.
    Examples of names commonly used to reference hand trucks are hand 
truck, convertible hand truck, appliance hand truck, cylinder hand 
truck, bag truck, dolly, or hand trolley. They are typically imported 
under heading 8716.80.50.10 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (HTSUS), although they may also be imported under heading 
8716.80.50.90. Specific parts of a hand truck, namely the vertical 
frame, the handling area and the projecting edges or toe plate, or any 
combination thereof, are typically imported under heading 8716.90.50.60 
of the HTSUS. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for 
convenience and customs purposes, the Department's written description 
of the scope is dispositive.
    Excluded from the scope are small two-wheel or four-wheel utility 
carts specifically designed for carrying loads like personal bags or 
luggage in which the frame is made from telescoping tubular materials 
measuring less than \5/8\ inch in diameter; hand trucks that use 
motorized operations either to move the hand truck from one location to 
the next or to assist in the lifting of items placed on the hand truck; 
vertical carriers designed specifically to transport golf bags; and 
wheels and tires used in the manufacture of hand trucks.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results of Review

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires that the Department 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 time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days 
after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a 
review is requested.
    The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the 
preliminary results of this review within the original time frame 
because comments from interested parties have necessitated the 
solicitation and subsequent analysis of additional information from the 
respondent, New-Tec Integration (Xiamen) Co., Ltd. This additional 
information covers a wide range of issues and is extensive. The 
Department requires additional time to gather and analyze the 
additional information. Thus, the Department finds it is not 
practicable to complete this review within the original time limit 
(i.e., September 2, 2011). Accordingly, the Department is extending the 
time limit for completion of the preliminary results of this 
administrative review by 120 days (i.e., until January 3, 2012),\1\ in 
accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.213(h)(2). We intend to issue the final results no later than 120 
days after publication of the preliminary results notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The current deadline for the preliminary results of this 
review is December 31, 2011. As this date falls on Saturday, a non-
business day, the preliminary results are due January 3, 2012. 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).

    This extension is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.
