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 Agreements Act. In addition, unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Department's regulations are to the current regulations, codified at 19 CFR part 351 (2000).
Based on timely requests by petitioners and respondents in both proceedings, the Department published its initiation of this antidumping duty administrative review covering the period of August 1, 1999 through July 31, 2000 (65 FR 58733) on October 2, 2000.
Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results
Due to the complex issues involved with this case, we find that it is not practicable to make a preliminary determination by the current deadline of May 3, 2001. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department's regulations, the Department is extending the time limits for the preliminary results for 120 days, until no later than August 31, 2001.Start Signature
