On August 8, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of this administrative review of silicon metal from Brazil. See Silicon Metal From Brazil: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 45665 (August 8, 2005) (“Preliminary Results”). In the Preliminary Results we stated that we would make our final determination for the antidumping duty review no later than 120 days after the date of publication of the preliminary results (i.e., December 6, 2005).
Extension of Time Limit for Final Results
The Department is extending the time limit for the final results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on silicon metal from Brazil. This review covers the period July 1, 2003, through June 30, 2004.
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act states that if it is not practicable to complete the review within the time specified, the administering authority may extend the 120-day period, following the date of publication of the preliminary results, to issue its final results by an additional 60 days. Completion of the final results within the 120-day period is not practicable due to a delay in the schedule for submission of interested party arguments and given the number and complexity of issues raised in this review segment, including issues regarding depreciation and financial expenses.
Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for issuing Start Printed Page 71804the final results of review by an additional sixty days until no later than February 4, 2006.Start Signature
