The Department initiated this administrative review on October 1, 1999 (64 FR 53318) and November 4, 1999 (64 FR 60161). Under section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Tariff Act), the Department may extend the deadline for completion of an administrative review if it determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within the statutory time limit of 365 days. Because of the complexity and difficulty presented with surrogate country selection and factor valuation in this case, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results until August 30, 2000. See Memorandum from Richard Weible to Joseph Spetrini, on file in room B-099 of the main Commerce building. The deadline for the final results of this review will continue to be 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.
This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department's regulations.Start Signature
