On May 25, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register its preliminary results of the second administrative review on non-malleable cast iron pipe fittings from the People's Republic of China (“PRC”). See Non-Malleable Cast Iron Pipe Fittings from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 30116 (May 25, 2006) (“Preliminary Results”). The final results of this administrative review are currently due no later than September 22, 2006.
Extension of Time Limit of Final Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), requires the Department to issue final results within 120 days of the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the extend the 120-day period to a maximum of 180 days. Completion of the final results of this review within the 120-day period is not practicable because the Department needs additional time to evaluate substantially intricate issues raised by the petitioners and respondents in their respective case briefs and rebuttals.
Because it is not practicable to complete this review within the time specified under the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the final results of review by 30 days until October 22, 2006, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Start Printed Page 53662Further, because October 22, 2006, falls on a Sunday, the final results will be due on October 23, 2006, the next business day. This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
