The Applicable Statute
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 (URAA). In addition, unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Department of Commerce's (the Department's) regulations are to 19 CFR part 351 (1999).
Extension of Time Limits for Final Results
The Department published the preliminary results of this administrative review on September 7, 2000 (64 FR 54220). The deadline for completing the final results of review is January 5, 2000. Under section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 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. Due to the complexity of the issues in this case, such as whether certain sales are outside the ordinary course of trade and how difference-in-merchandise adjustments are calculated, and due to administrative constraints, the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this review within the statutory time limits mandated by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for the final results of this review to February 5, 2000.Start Signature
