Extension of Time Limits for Final Results
The Department published the preliminary results of this administrative review on September 7, 2000 (64 FR 54220). 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. On January 5, 2001, the Department published in the Federal Register an extension of the time limit for the final results of this review until February 5, 2001 (66 FR 1078). However, 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 to administrative constraints, the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this review within this time limit. Therefore, the Department is fully extending the deadline for the final results in this review to 180 days from the date on which the notice of preliminary results was published. The fully extended deadline for the final results is March 6, 2001.Start Signature
