On September 6, 2000, the Department initiated an antidumping duty administrative review for the period of January 4, 2000 through June 30, 2001 (65 FR 58733). The Department published its preliminary results on August 8, 2001 (66 FR 41517).
Extension of Time Limit for Final Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act states that if it is not practicable to complete the review within the time specified, the administering authority may extend the 120-day period, following the date of publication of the preliminary determination, to issue its final results by an additional 60 days. Completion of the final results within the 120-day period is not practicable because this review involves certain complex issues, including respondent's request for a constructed export price offset and numerous affiliated entities.
Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for issuing the final results of review by 30 days until January 7, 2002.Start Signature
