On July 26, 2007, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published the initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on folding metal tables and chairs from the People's Republic of China (“PRC”). See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 41057 (July 26, 2007). This review covers the period June 1, 2006, through May 31, 2007.
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review
Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period.
On March 4, 2008, the Department published a notice of extension of time limit for the preliminary results of this administrative review of the antidumping duty order. See Folding Metal Tables and Chairs from the People's Republic of China: Notice of Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 11615 (March 4, 2008). The preliminary results of review are currently due no later than May 30, 2008.
The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of the administrative review of folding metal tables and chairs from the PRC within this time limit. Specifically, due to complex issues related to the selection of surrogate values, we find that additional time is needed to complete these preliminary results. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is now fully extending the time period for completion of the preliminary results of this review to 365 days until June 29, 2008. Because June 29, 2008, falls on a Sunday, the preliminary results will be due June 30, 2008, the next business day.
This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
