On July 30, 2008, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) initiated the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished or unfinished (“TRBs”), from the People's Republic of China (“PRC”) 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). On February 19, 2009, the Department published a notice in the Federal Register extending the time limit for the preliminary results of review by 90 days, until June 1, 2009. See Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof, Finished or Unfinished, from the People's Republic of China: Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary Results of the 2007-2008 Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order, 74 FR 7661 (February 19, 2009).
Statutory Time Limits
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination in an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month.
Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results
We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the current extended time limit because the Department requires additional time to analyze the supplemental questionnaire responses and issue additional supplemental questionnaires, if necessary. Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results by an additional 30 days. Thus, the preliminary results of this review are being fully extended by 120 days from the original deadline of March 2, 2009, which results in a new deadline of June 30, 2009. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.
We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.Start Signature
