The Applicable Statute
Unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) are to the provisions effective January 1, 1995, the effective date of the amendments made to the Act by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act. In addition, unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Department's regulations are to 19 CFR part 351 (1999).
On March 30, 1999, the Department received a request from Yancheng Haiteng Aquatic Products & Foods Co., Ltd. to conduct a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on freshwater crawfish tail meat from the People's Republic of China. On May 6, 1999, the Department published its initiation of this new shipper review covering the period September 1, 1998 through February 28, 1999 (64 FR 24328). On March 15, 2000, the Department published the preliminary results of review (65 FR 13939). On May 1, 2000, the Department extended the time limit for the final results of this new shipper review to June 23, 2000 (65 FR 25309). On June 28, 2000, the Department extended the time limit for the final results of this new shipper review to July 14, 2000 ( 65 FR 39868).
Extension of Time Limits for Final Results
Because of the complexities enumerated in the Memorandum from Edward C. Yang to Joseph A. Spetrini, Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results of New Shipper Review of Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat from the People's Republic of China, dated July 13, 2000, we find this case is extraordinarily complicated and thus are unable to complete this review by the scheduled deadline. Therefore, in accordance with section 351.214(i)(2) of the Department's regulations, the Department is extending the time period for issuing the final results of review until July 24, 2000.Start Signature
Dated: July 14, 2000.
