The Department initiated this administrative review on June 2, 2000 (65 FR 35320). 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 of researching whether or not Amylum entries during the period of review (POR), and the need to allow parties the opportunity to comment on the results of our research prior to issuing preliminary results of review, we are extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results until April 30, 2001. See Memorandum from Richard Weible to Joseph Spetrini, titled, “Extension of Time Limit for the April 1999 through March 2000 Administrative Review,” dated the same date as the publication of this notice, on file in room B-099 of the main Commerce building. The deadline for the final results 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
