On April 25, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain orange juice from Brazil. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 22337 (April 25, 2008). The period of review is March 1, 2007, through February 29, 2008, and the preliminary results are currently due no later than December 1, 2008. The review covers two producers/exporters of the subject merchandise to the United States.
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results
Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an administrative review of an antidumping order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. We determine that it is not practicable to complete this administrative review within the time limits mandated by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act because of certain technical issues contained in supplemental questionnaire responses. Analysis of these issues requires additional time. Therefore, we have fully extended the deadline for completing the preliminary results until March 31, 2009. 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 published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
