Applicable Statute

Unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), are to the provisions effective January 1, 1995, the effective date of the amendments made to the Act by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (“URAA”). In addition, unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Department's regulations are to 19 CFR part 351 (2001).

Background

On July 23, 2001, the Department published a notice of initiation of this antidumping duty administrative review for the period of June 1, 2000 through May 31, 2001 (66 FR 38252). We published the preliminary results of review on July 9, 2002 (67 FR 45467). On November 7, 2002, (67 FR 67823) we extended the time limit for this review 30 days.

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 results, to issue its final results by an additional 60 days. Completion of the final results within the 120-day period is not practicable for the following reasons:

  • This review involves certain complex Constructed Export Price (“CEP”) adjustments including but not limited to CEP Profit and CEP Offset which were raised by respondent and petitioners after the verification and after the preliminary results of review.
  • The review involves a large number of transactions and complex adjustments other than those mentioned above.

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 11 days until December 17, 2002.
