The Applicable Statute
Unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), are references to the provisions effective January 1, 1995, the effective date of the amendments made to the Act by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act. In addition, unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Department's regulations are to 19 CFR part 351 (2000).
Extension of Time Limit for Final Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act requires the Department to issue its final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the final results within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the 120 day time limit to 180 days.
The Department issued the preliminary results of the 1999-2000 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on SRAMs from Taiwan on May 4, 2001 (66 FR 22520). Due to the number of complex sales and cost issues raised by the parties in their case briefs (e.g., the appropriate methodology for making sales and cost comparisons, the calculation of yield/loss ratios, etc.), we determine that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this review within the original time period. Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for issuing the final results to no later than October 31, 2001.Start Signature
