On September 22, 2009, the Department of Commerce (“Department”) published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on laminated woven sacks from the People's Republic of China. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 48224 (September 22, 2009). The period of review is January 31, 2008, through July 31, 2009. The preliminary results of the administrative review are currently due no later than May 10, 2010.
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results
Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the “Act”), the Department shall make a preliminary determination 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. 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 365 days. Completion of the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period is not practicable because the Department needs additional time to analyze information pertaining to the respondents' sales practices, factors of production, subject merchandise and corporate relationships, to issue and review responses to supplemental questionnaires. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for completing the preliminary results of the instant administrative review by 90-days from May 10, 2010, until August 9, 2010, the first business day after the 90-day extended due date of August 8, 2010.1 The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.
This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature

As explained in the memorandum from the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, the Department has exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from February 5, through February 12, 2010.
