Postponement of Preliminary Determination

On October 11, 2007, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated the antidumping duty investigation of raw flexible magnets from Taiwan. See Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigations: Raw Flexible Magnets from the People's Republic of China and Taiwan, 72 FR 59071 (October 18, 2007). The notice of initiation stated that the Department would issue its preliminary determinations for this investigation no later than 140 days after the date of issuance of the initiation (e.g., February 28, 2008), in accordance with section 733(b)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

On January 16, 2008, the petitioner, Magnum Magnetics Corporation, made a timely request pursuant to 19 CFR 351.205(e) for a postponement of the preliminary determination with respect to Taiwan. The petitioner requested postponement of the preliminary determination in order to allow the Department additional time to address several complex issues such as the appropriate model-matching characteristics.

For the reason identified by the petitioner and because there are no compelling reasons to deny the request, the Department is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determination with respect to Taiwan under section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Act by 50 days to April 18, 2008. The deadline for the final determination will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determination, unless extended.

This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 733(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1).
