SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On September 15, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the countervailing duty order on dynamic random access memory semiconductors from the Republic of Korea (“Korea”) covering the period April 7, 2003, through December 31, 2003 (70 FR 54523). The final results are currently due no later than January 13, 2006.Start Printed Page 69515

Extension of Time Limits for Final Results

Under section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) the Department may extend the deadline for completion of an administrative review if it determines that it is not practicable to complete the final results of the review within the statutory time limit of 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results in the Federal Register. We are currently analyzing information submitted by interested parties in this review. This administrative review is extraordinarily complicated due to the unique nature of the countervailable subsidy practices being examined in this review. The Department finds that it needs additional time to consider the exceedingly complex issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs regarding entrustment and direction. Moreover, record evidence relating to equityworthiness and creditworthiness is voluminous and time intensive to evaluate. Therefore, it is not practicable to complete this review within the time limit mandated by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of these final results for 60 days (i.e., until March 14, 2006).

This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
