On July 30, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on chlorinated isocyanurates from Spain for the period June 1, 2007 through May 31, 2008. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, Request for Revocation in Part, and Deferral of Administrative Review, 73 FR 44220 (July 30, 2008). The preliminary results of this administrative review are currently due no later than March 2, 2009.
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results
Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1), the Department shall issue preliminary results in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 days if it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. See id.; see also 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results by the current deadline of March 2, 2009 because it needs additional time to fully analyze the sales and cost-of-production supplemental questionnaire responses that are due from respondent, and to conduct cost and sales verifications of the questionnaire responses. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department has decided to extend the time limit for the preliminary results by 78 days to May 19, 2009. Unless extended, the final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h) of the Department's regulations.
This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.Start Signature
