Extension of Final Determination
On February 2, 2004, the Department initiated a sunset review of the antidumping order on Sorbitol from France. See Initiation of Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews, 69 FR 4921 (February 2, 2004). The Department determined that it would conduct an expedited (120 day) sunset review of this order based on responses from the domestic and respondent interested parties to the notice of initiation. The Department's final results of this review were scheduled for June 1, 2004. However, issues have arisen over the appropriate magnitude of the dumping margin likely to prevail for certain companies subject to the sunset review. Because of these complex issues, the Department will extend the deadline. Thus, the Department intends to issue the final results not later than June 15, 2004 in accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B).Start Signature

Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
1. The Department normally will issue its final results in an expedited sunset review not later than 120 days after the date of publication in the Federal Register of the notice of initiation. However, if the Secretary determines that a sunset review is extraordinarily complicated under section 751(c)(5)(C) of the Act, the Secretary may extend the period for issuing final results by not more than 90 days. See section 751(c)(5)(B) of the Act.Back to Citation
