This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

The Applicable Statute
Unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Tariff Act of 1930 (“the Act”), as amended, are references to the provisions effective January 1, 1995, the effective date of the amendments made to the Act by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (URAA). In addition, all citations to the Department's regulations are to 19 CFR part 351 (1998).
Postponement of Final Determination and Extenison of Provisional Measures
On December 21, 1999, the Department issued its affirmative preliminary determination in this proceeding. The notice stated we would issue our final determination not later than 75 days after the date of the preliminary determination. See, Notice of Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Bulk Aspirin from the People's Republic of China, 65 FR 116 (January 3, 2000).
On December 28, 1999, pursuant to section 735(a)(2)(A) of the Act, Shandong Xinhua Pharmaceutical Factory (“Shandong”), a named respondent in this investigation, requested the Department to postpone the final determination in this investigation. On January 4, 2000, Shandong also requested an extension of the provisional measures (i.e., suspension of liquidation) to not more than six months, in accordance with the Department's regulations (19 CFR 351.210(e)(2)) and section 735(a)(2) of the Act.
Because our preliminary determination is affirmative, the respondent requesting the postponement represents a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise from the People's Republic of China, and no compelling reasons for denial exist, we are extending this final determination to not later than 135 days after the publication of the preliminary determination (i.e., May 17, 2000). Suspension of liquidation will be extended accordingly.
This notice of postponement is published pursuant to section 735(a) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(g).Start Signature
Dated: January 13, 2000.
