Statutory Time Limits
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department of Commerce (the Department) to make a preliminary determination within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order/finding for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary determination is published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days and for the final determination to 180 days (or 300 days if the Department does not extend the time limit for the preliminary determination) from the date of publication of the preliminary determination.
On June 30, 1999, the Department published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on DRAMs from the Republic of Korea, covering the period May 1, 1998 through April 30, 1999, (64 FR 35124). On June 6, 2000, (65 FR 35886), we published the preliminary results of review. In our notice of preliminary results, we stated our intention to issue the final results of this review no later than October 4, 2000.
Extension of Final Results of Review
We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this Start Printed Page 48962review within the original time limit. Therefore we are extending the time limits for completion of the final results until no later than November 3, 2000. See Decision Memorandum from Thomas F. Futtner to Holly A. Kuga, dated concurrently with this notice, which is on file in the Central Records Unit, Room B-099 of the main Commerce Building.
This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.Start Signature
