On July 28, 2004, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review of tapered roller bearings and parts, thereof, finished or unfinished from the People's Republic of China for the period June 1, 2003, through May 31, 2004. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 69 FR 45010 (July 28, 2004). The preliminary results of review are currently due no later than March 2, 2005.
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), states that, if it is not practicable to complete the review within the time specified, the administering authority may extend the 245-day period to issue its preliminary results by up to 120 days. Completion of the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period is not practicable because the Department needs additional time to analyze a significant amount of information pertaining to each company's sales practices, factors of production, corporate relationships, and to review responses to supplemental questionnaires.
Because it is not practicable to complete this review within the time specified under the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 60 days until May 1, 2005, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results of review.Start Signature
Dated: January 28, 2005.
