On July 26, 2007, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published in the Federal Register a notice of the initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review of tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished (“TRBs”) 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). On July 17, 2008, the Department published its preliminary results on TRBs from the PRC. See Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof, Finished and Unfinished, from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 41033 (July 17, 2008). The final results of this administrative review are currently due no later than November 14, 2008.
Extension of Time Limit for Final Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), requires the Department to issue the final results in an administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time period to a maximum of 180 days.
The Department has determined that completion of the final results within the 120-day period is not practicable because the Department requires additional time to analyze case and rebuttal briefs, and to hold a hearing. Because it is not practicable to complete this review within the current time limit, the Department is extending the time period for issuing the final results of review by 60 days, until January 13, 2009, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
Dated: November 13, 2008.
