On May 15, 1989, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the antidumping duty orders on ball bearings from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Singapore, and the United Kingdom and on spherical plain bearings and parts thereof from France in the Federal Register (54 FR 20900). At the request of interested parties, the Department initiated administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on antifriction bearings and parts thereof from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Singapore, and the United Kingdom for the period May 1, 2003, through April 30, 2004. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 69 FR 39409 (June 30, 2004). The preliminary results of reviews are currently due no later than April 27, 2005. See Antifriction Bearings and Parts Thereof From France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Singapore, and the United Kingdom: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 70 FR 3676 (April 4, 2005).
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Reviews
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination 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 determination is published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month.
We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of these reviews within the original time limit because of the necessity for additional time to analyze comments made by interested parties regarding the model-match methodology at meetings held with the Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration on April 18, 2005, and April 19, 2005. Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of these reviews by an additional nine days, until May 6, 2005, which is 340 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the order.
This notice is published in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).Start Signature
