The Department of Commerce is extending the time limit for the preliminary results of the thirteenth administrative review of the antidumping duty order on porcelain-on-steel cookware from Mexico, which covers the period December 1, 1998, through November 30, 1999.
Unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 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. In addition, unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Department of Commerce (the Department) regulations are to 19 CFR Part 351 (April 2000).End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results in this thirteenth administrative review of porcelain-on-steel cookware from Mexico within this time limit due to the need to issue verification reports and to conduct numerous margin programming changes resulting from verification findings prior to the preliminary results.
Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time for completion of the preliminary results of this review until October 16, 2000.Start Signature
Dated: August 14, 2000.
Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
