At the request of interested parties, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on ball bearings and parts thereof from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Singapore, and the United Kingdom for the period May 1, 2005, through April 30, 2006. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 71 FR 37892 (July 3, 2006). On January 18, 2007, we extended the due date for the completion of the preliminary results of reviews by 45 days. See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof From France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Singapore, and the United Kingdom: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 72 FR 2261 (January 18, 2007). The preliminary results of the reviews are currently due no later than March 19, 2007.
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews
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 for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary determination is published. 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 time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month.
We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of these reviews within the current time limit because of the number of respondents in these reviews and the complexity of the issues under analysis such as further-manufacturing operations in the United States, the “collapsing” of companies, and the use of constructed value for reseller respondents. Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of these reviews by 16 additional days until April 2, 2007.
This notice is published in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).Start Signature
