Background

On June 6, 2007, the Department published the preliminary results of the 2005-2006 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain polyester staple fiber (“PSF”) from Korea. See Certain Polyester Staple Fiber from Korea: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Preliminary Intent to Rescind, 72 FR 31279 (June 6, 2007). This review covers two manufacturers/exporters of the subject merchandise to the United States, Huvis Corporation (“Huvis”) and Dongwoo Industry Company (“Dongwoo”). In the preliminary results, we stated that we would issue our final results for the antidumping duty administrative review no later than 120 days after the date of publication of the preliminary results (i.e., October 4, 2007).

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 the publication date of the preliminary results. 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 time limit for the final results to a maximum of 180 days.

The Department has determined that completion of the final results of this review within the original time period is not practicable due to the complex legal and factual issues that have arisen since the issuance of our preliminary results of review. Specifically, the Department requires additional time to review interested parties' comments on information provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection with respect to Dongwoo. Thus, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for issuing the final results of review by an additional 60 days, until December 3, 2007.

This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
