On April 4, 2008, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published the preliminary results of the antidumping duty administrative review of glycine from the People's Republic of China, covering the period March 1, 2006, through February 28, 2007. See Glycine from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Partial Rescission, 73 FR 18503 (April 4, 2008).
Extension of Time Limits for Final Results
Pursuant to 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, the Department shall issue the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act and the regulations further provide that the Department shall issue the final results of review within 120 days after the date on which the notice of the preliminary results was published in the Federal Register. See section Error! Main Document Only.751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(1) of the Department's regulations. However, if the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, 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 the 120-day period to 180 days.
The Department extended the deadline for parties to submit case briefs and rebuttal briefs in order to address several issues raised by interested parties. As a result of these extensions and to allow more time to analyze issues raised in the case briefs and rebuttal briefs, the Department has determined that it is not practicable to complete the administrative review within the current time limit.
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 deadline for the final results of a review to a maximum of 180 days from the date on which the notice of the preliminary results was published. For the reasons noted above, the Department is extending the time limit for the completion of these final results by 30 days, from the current deadline of August 2, 2008, until no later than September 2, 2008.1
This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
Dated: July 8, 2008.
Stephen J. Claeys,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
1. An extension of 30 days from the current deadline of August 2, 2008, would result in a new deadline of September 1, 2008. However, since September 1, 2008, is a federal holiday, the deadline will be the next business day, September 2, 2008.Back to Citation
