On August 29, 2005, the U.S. Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain pasta from Italy, covering the period from July 1, 2004, to June 30, 2005. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 51009 (August 29, 2005). The preliminary results of this review are currently due no later than April 3, 2006.

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

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 or finding for which a review is requested. Consistent with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it is not practicable to complete the review within a 245-day period.

We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period is not practicable because additional time is needed by the Department to gather supplemental responses from the companies participating in the review. In order to obtain and analyze necessary additional information, and in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 45 days to May 18, 2006. Therefore, the preliminary results are now due no later than May 18, 2006. The final results continue to be due 120 days after publication of the preliminary results.

This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(I) of the Act.
