Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review
On January 22, 2003, in response to a request to conduct an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on silicomanganese from Brazil, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published a notice of initiation of administrative review covering the period December 1, 2001, through November 30, 2002. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 68 FR 3009.
Currently, the preliminary results of this administrative review are due no later than September 2, 2003. Due to the complexity of certain cost issues, including the cost investigation and high inflation during the period of review, that have arisen in the course of the review, it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results within the time limits mandated by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended. Therefore, in accordance with that section, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results until no later than October 17, 2003. The deadline for the final results of this review will continue to be 120 days after publication of the preliminary results.Start Signature
