Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results
The Department of Commerce (the Department) received a request to conduct an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on gray portland cement and clinker from Mexico. On October 1, 2001, the Department published the notice of initiation for this administrative review (66 FR 49924). The period of review is August 1, 2000, through July 31, 2001. The deadline for completing the preliminary results of the review is May 3, 2002.
In this review, complex issues exist regarding product matching (e.g., comparability between the U.S. cement product specifications and the new Mexican cement product specifications). Due to the complexity of these issues and the constraints on the Department's resources available to analyze it appropriately, given the number of proceedings currently before the Department, the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the statutory time limit. Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for the preliminary results in this review to August 31, 2002. This extension of the time limit is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. The Department intends to issue the final results of review 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.Start Signature
