On August 29, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on canned pineapple fruit from Thailand, covering the period July 1, 2004, through June 30, 2005. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 51009. The preliminary results of review are currently due no later than April 2, 2006.
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review
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 and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary determination is published. However, 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 245-day time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days and the time limit for the final determination to 180 days (or 300 days if the Department does not extend the time limit for the preliminary determination) from the date of publication of the preliminary determination.
We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the original time limit because the review involves examining complex cost issues. Therefore, the Department is fully extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results until no later than July 31, 2006, which is 365 days from the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The deadline for the final results of this administrative review continues to be 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.
This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.Start Signature
