On September 12, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of this antidumping administrative review. Floor-Standing, Metal-Top Ironing Tables and Certain Parts Thereof from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 53655 (September 12, 2006).
Extension of Time Limits for Final Results
Pursuant to Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and section 351.213(h)(1) of the Department's regulations, the Department shall issue the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act further provides that the Department shall issue the final results of review within 120 days after the date on which the notice of the preliminary results was published in the Federal Register. However, if the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department's regulations allow the Department to extend the 245-day period to 365 days and the 120-day period to 180 days.
In the instant review, the Department finds that the current deadline for the final results is not practicable. The Department requires additional time to conduct verifications of the exporters, and review and analyze interested party comments. As a result, the Department has determined to extend the current time limits of this administrative review. For these reasons, the Department is fully extending the time limit for the completion of these final results until no later than Monday, March 12, 2007, which is the first business day 180 days from the date on which the notice of the preliminary results was published.
This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
Dated: October 16, 2006.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
