Applicable Statute And Regulations:
Unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the statute are references to the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended.
Extension Of Time Limit Of Final Results:
Under section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act, the Department may extend the deadline for completion of a new shipper review if it determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within the statutory time limit of 90 days after issuance of the preliminary determination. In the instant case, the Department has determined that it is not practicable to complete the review within the statutory time limit due to certain complex issues relating to Shanghai New Star Import/Export Co., Ltd. and Peak Candle's sales valuation, surrogate values and factors of production.
Because it is not practicable to complete this review within the time limits mandated by the Act (90 days after the date the preliminary determination is issued), in accordance with Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act, the Department is extending the time limit for the final determination an additional 45 days, to no later than May 30, 2002.
This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and section 351.214(i)(2) of the Department's Regulations.Start Signature
