Statutory Time Limits
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), requires the Department of Commerce (“Department”) to issue the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and the final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 days and 180 days, respectively.

On May 30, 2008, the Department published the preliminary results of the 2006-2007 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain polyester staple fiber from the Republic of Korea. See Certain Polyester Staple Fiber from Korea: Preliminary Results of the 2006/2007 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 31058 (May 30, 2008). In our preliminary results, we stated that we would issue our final results for the antidumping duty administrative review no later than 120 days after the date of publication of the preliminary results (i.e., September 27, 2008).
Extension of Time Limits for Final Results
The Department has determined that completion of the final results of this review within the original time period is not practicable due to the complex legal and factual issues that have arisen since the issuance of our preliminary results of review. Specifically, the Department requires additional time to review interested parties' comments on information regarding respondent's, Huvis Corporation's, affiliated parties. Thus, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for issuing the final results of review by an additional 60 days, until November 26, 2008.
We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.Start Signature
