Statutory Time Limits
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to issue (1) the preliminary results of a review within 245 days after the last day of the month in which occurs the anniversary of the date of publication of an order or finding for which a review is requested, and (2) the final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days and the final results to a maximum of 180 days (or 300 days if the Department does not extend the time limit for the preliminary results) from the date of the publication of the preliminary results. See also 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
Extension of Final Results of Reviews
We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this review within the original time limits. Due to the complexity of issues present in this administrative review, such as complicated cost accounting issues, the Department needs more time to address these items and evaluate the issues more thoroughly. Therefore, we are extending the deadline for the final results of the above-referenced review 60 days1. As a result, the final results will be issued no later than May 9, 2005.
This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).Start Signature
Dated: February 10, 2005.
Barbara E. Tillman,
Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
1. The 60-day extension of the final results falls on Saturday May 7, 2005; therefore, the final results will be issued no later than the first business day thereafter, Monday May 9, 2005.Back to Citation
