Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review
The instant new shipper review is extraordinarily complicated (e.g., exchange rates, and cost of production issues) and a greater amount of time is necessary in order to complete this review. Therefore, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the final results to 150 days from the issuance of the preliminary results, until December 26, 2002.
This extension of the time limit is in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 214(i)(2).Start Signature
