On September 12, 2007, the Department initiated new shipper reviews of Dongguan Bon Ten Furniture Co., Ltd. (“Bon Ten”) and Dongguan Mu Si Furniture Co., Ltd. (“Mu Si”) covering the period January 1, 2007, through July 31, 2007. See Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 72 FR 52083 (September 12, 2007). The preliminary results of the new shipper reviews are currently due no later than February 27, 2008.
Statutory Time Limits
Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the “Act”), provides that the Department will issue the preliminary results of a new shipper review of an antidumping duty order within 180 days after the day on which the review was initiated. See also 19 CFR 351.214 (i)(1). The Act further provides that the Department may extend that 180-day period to 300 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated. See 19 CFR 351.214 (i)(2).
Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results
The Department determines that these new shipper reviews involve complicated methodological issues and the examination of importer information. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2), the Department is extending the time limit for these preliminary results by 90 days, until no later than May 27, 2008. The final results continue to be due 90 days after the publication of the preliminary results.
We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
