On April 10, 2006, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on pure magnesium from the People's Republic of China (“PRC”). See Pure Magnesium from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 18067 (April 10, 2006) (“Preliminary Results”). In the Preliminary Results, we stated that we would issue our final results of review no later than 120 days after the date of publication of the preliminary results (i.e., August 8, 2006). On July 31, 2006, the Department publishes in the Federal Register a notice extending the time limit for the final results or the administrative review from August 8, 2006, to September 7, 2006. See Notice of Extension of Final Result of the 2004-2005 Administrative Review of Pure Magnesium from the People's Republic of China, 71 FR 43110 (July 31, 2006). The final results of review are currently due no later than September 7, 2006.
Extension of Time Limit for Final Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), requires the Department to issue the final results in an administrative review within 120 days of publication date of the preliminary results. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, the Department may extend the time limit for the final results to 180 days. Completion of the final results within the 120-day period is not practicable because this review involves certain complex issues, such as valuation of various factors of production that both the Petitioner and the respondent addressed in their case briefs.
Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for issuing these final results of review by an additional 22 days to 172 days, i.e., until September 29, 2006.Start Signature
Dated: September 5, 2006.
