The Department of Commerce is extending the time limit for the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from Chile, which covers the period December 1, 1999, through November 30, 2000.
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 of Commerce (the Department) regulations are to 19 CFR part 351 (April 2000).End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period.
On July 19, 2001, the Department partially extended the time limit for the preliminary results until November 15, 2001 (see Certain Preserved Mushrooms from Chile: Notice of Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results in Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 66 FR 37640). The Department now finds that, given the complexity of the issues involved in this case and the need to analyze further the information provided by the parties, it must extend the deadline for a total of 120 days, the maximum extension allowed under the Act.
Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time for completion of the preliminary results of this review until January 2, 2002.Start Signature
