On October 31, 2007, the Department published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on freshwater crawfish tail meat from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 72 FR 61621 (October 31, 2007). The period of review is September 1, 2006, through August 31, 2007. The preliminary results of the administrative review are currently due no later than June 1, 2008.
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary determination is published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month.
We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of the review within the current time limit because we require additional time to analyze several complex sales-reporting issues. Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of the review by 60 days until July 31, 2008. The deadline for the final results of the review continues to be 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.
This extension notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).Start Signature
Dated: May 30, 2008.
