On August 22, 2003, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on individual quick frozen red raspberries from Chile, covering the period December 31, 2001, through June 30, 2003. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, (68 FR 50750). The preliminary results for this review are currently due no later than April 1, 2004.
Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act requires the Department to issue the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 days and 180 days, respectively.
We are currently analyzing sales information provided by the three Start Printed Page 10982respondents and cost information from one of the respondents in this review. In addition, we are awaiting cost responses from two of the respondents. Because the Department requires time to review and analyze these responses once they are received and to issue supplemental questionnaires if necessary, it is not practicable to complete this review within the originally anticipated time limit (i.e., April 1, 2004). Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results to not later than July 30, 2004, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.Start Signature
