The Applicable Statute
Unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the statute are references to the provisions effective January 1, 1995, the effective date of the amendments made to the Tariff Act of 1930 (the Act) by the Uruguay Round Agreement Act. In addition, unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Department's regulations are to the current regulations, codified at 19 CFR part 351 (1999).
On August 31, 1999, the Department of Commerce (the Department) received a request from petitioner, Nation Ford Chemical Company (NFC), to conduct an administrative review on Zhenxing Chemical Company. The Department also received a request for an administrative review on the same day from respondents Zhenxing Chemical Company, Yude Chemical Company, and PHT International, the U.S. importer. On October 1, 1999, the Department published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on sulfanilic acid from the People's Republic of china, covering the period August 1, 1998 through July 31, 1999 (64 FR 53318). On September 14, 2000, the Department published its preliminary results of this administrative review (65 FR 55508).
Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results
Because of the complexities enumerated in the Memorandum from Barbara E. Tillman to Joseph A. Spetrini, Extension of Time Limit for the Administrative Review of Sulfanilic Acid from the People's Republic of China, dated January 4, 2001, it is not practical to complete this review within the time limits mandated by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time limit for the final results of review from January 12, 2001 to March 13, 2001.Start Signature
Dated: January 3, 2001.

Deputy Assistant Secretary, AD/CVD Enforcement Group III.
