On August 20, 2007, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register the notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on canned pineapple fruit from Thailand for Vita Food Factory (1989) Ltd. (Vita). See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 48613 (August 20, 2007). The period of review for Vita is July 1, 2006 through June 30, 2007.
Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and section 351.213(h)(1) of the Department's regulations require the Department to issue the preliminary results of a review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the order or suspension agreement for which the administrative review was requested, and final results of the review within 120 days after the date on which the notice of the preliminary results is published in the Federal Register. However, if the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within the aforementioned specified time limits, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department's regulations allow the Department to extend the 245-day period to 365 days and to extend the 120-day period to 180 days.
Due to the need for further analysis of Vita's questionnaire response, particularly with respect to Vita's reported selling agents and commissions, the Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the original time limit. Therefore, the Department is extending the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review of the antidumping duty order on canned pineapple fruit from Thailand by 120 days from April 1, 2008 until no later than July 30, 2008.
This notice is issued and published pursuant to sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.Start Signature
