On December 1, 2004, the Department published an opportunity to request a review for porcelain-on-steel cooking ware from the People's Republic of China (“PRC”) for the period of December 1, 2003, to November 30, 2004. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Filing, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request an Administrative Review, 69 FR 69889 (December 1, 2004). On December 28, 2004, respondent Shanghai Watex Metal Products Co., Ltd. (“Watex”), an exporter of the subject merchandise, requested a review. No other interested parties requested a review. On January 31, 2005, the Department published its notice of initiation of an antidumping administrative review on porcelain-on-steel cooking ware from the PRC. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 4818 (January 31, 2005). On August 11, 2005, the Department published a notice of extension of time limit for the preliminary results of this administrative review extending the time limit for the preliminary results by 90 days until December 1, 2005. See Porcelain-on-Steel Cooking Ware from the People's Republic of China: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 46813 (August 11, 2005). The preliminary results of this administrative review are currently due December 1, 2005.
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results
Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), the Department shall issue preliminary results in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order for which a review is requested and 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 the specified time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 days and 180 days, respectively.
Completion of the preliminary results within the originally anticipated time limit, December 1, 2005, is impracticable because this review requires the Department to analyze complex issues regarding Watex's corporate structure and its affiliations and corporate relationships. Because it is not practicable to complete the review within the time specified under the Act, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results by 14 days to December 15, 2005, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. The deadline for the final results of this administrative review continues to be 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results. We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with section 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.Start Signature
