Statutory Time Limits
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act requires the Department to issue the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 days and 180 days, respectively.
On July 23, 2001, the Department published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished (“TRBs”) from the People's Republic of China, covering the period June 1, 2000, through May 31, 2001 (65 FR 38252). The preliminary results for the antidumping duty administrative review of TRBs from the People's Republic of China are currently due no later than March 4, 2002.
Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results
Due to the number of companies and complexity of the issues, it is not practicable to complete this review within the originally anticipated time limit (i.e., March 4, 2002). See Memorandum from Team to Richard W. Moreland, “Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results,” dated, February 1, 2001. Therefore, the Department of Commerce is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results to not later than June 30, 2002, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.Start Signature
