SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On September 29, 2006, the Department published a notice of initiation of a review of certain frozen fish fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (“Vietnam”), covering the period August 1, 2005, through July 31, 2006.1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 71 FR 57465 (September 29, 2006).

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

The Department determines that completion of the preliminary results of these reviews within the statutory time period is not practicable because the case is extraordinarily complicated. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act. The Third administrative review covers four companies, and to conduct the sales and factor analyses for each requires the Department to gather and analyze a significant amount of information pertaining to each company's sales practices and manufacturing methods. In addition, two companies involve complicated affiliation and collapsing issues. The Department requires additional time to analyze these issues.

Therefore, given the number and complexity of issues in this case, 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 30 days until August 31, 2007. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.

This notice is published pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.214(h)(I)(1) of the Department's regulations.
