Postponement of Preliminary Results of Review
On October 2, 2000, the Department published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the countervailing duty order on industrial phosphoric acid from Israel, covering the period January 1, 1999 through December 31, 1999 (65 FR 58733). The preliminary results are currently due no later than May 3, 2001.
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order/finding for which a review is requested. However, if it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for a preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days.
We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the original time limit. Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results to no later than August 31, 2001. See Memorandum from Barbara E. Tillman to Joseph A. Spetrini, dated April 2, 2001, which is on file in the Central Records Unit, Room B-099 of the main Commerce Building. This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.Start Signature
