On January 21, 2010, the Department published its notice of preliminary intent to rescind the new shipper review in the antidumping duty order on shrimp from Vietnam for Nhat Duc Co., Ltd. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Preliminary Intent To Rescind New Shipper Review, 75 FR 3446 (January 21, 2010) (“Preliminary Rescission”). The final results of this review are currently due no later than April 19, 2010.1
Statutory Time Limits
In antidumping duty new shipper reviews, section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) requires the Department to issue the final results of a new shipper review within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results are issued. However, the Department may extend the deadline for completion of the final results of a new shipper review to 150 days after the date on which the preliminary results are issued if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated. See 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2)
Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review
The Department has determined that the review is extraordinarily complicated as the Department's Preliminary Rescission included analysis of six detailed issues related to the respondent's POR sale. Both respondent and petitioner have provided extensive comments on all these issues, which must be analyzed along with the Department's preliminary determination. Based on the timing of the case and the extensive arguments and detailed issues that must be analyzed, the final results of this new shipper review cannot be completed within the statutory time limit of 90 days.
Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the final results of this new shipper review by 30 days from the April 19, 2010 deadline. The final results will now be due no later than May 19, 2010.
We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
