Statutory Time Limits
Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), requires the Department to issue the preliminary results of a new shipper review within 180 days after the date on which the new shipper review was initiated and a final determination within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results were issued. However, if the Department concludes that the case is extraordinarily complicated, section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 300 days and 150 days, respectively.
On January 24, 2001, the Department published a notice of initiation of new shipper antidumping duty reviews of TRBs from the PRC, covering the period June 1, 2000 through November 30, 2000 (66 FR 8385) for Yantai Timken Company Limited and Peer Bearing Company—Changshan (“CPZ”). On May 9, 2001, the Department expanded CPZ's period of review to January 31, 2001. The preliminary results for the new shipper reviews of TRBs from the PRC are currently due no later than July 23, 2001.
Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results
Due to the complexity of the issues, the Department concludes that these reviews are extraordinarily complicated. See Memorandum from Team to Richard W. Moreland, “Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results,” dated, June 27, 2001. Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of these preliminary results to not later than November 20, 2001, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act.
This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act.Start Signature
