On December 23, 2009, the Department of Commerce (“Department”) published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of fresh garlic from the People's Republic of China covering the period November 1, 2008 through October 31, 2009. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, and Request for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 68229 (December 23, 2009). On February 12, 2010, the Department issued a memorandum that tolled the deadlines for all Import Administration cases by seven calendar days due to the Federal Government closure. See Memorandum for the Record from Ronald Lorentzen, DAS for Import Administration, Tolling of Administrative Deadlines as a Result of the Government Closure During the Recent Snowstorm, dated February 12, 2010. As a result, the preliminary results of this administrative review are currently due no later than August 9, 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 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 order for which the administrative review was requested. However, if the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within the aforementioned specified time limits, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2) allow the Department to extend the 245-day period to 365 days.Start Printed Page 32362
Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), we determine that it is not practicable to complete the results of this review within the original time limit. The Department needs additional time to analyze a significant amount of information, which was recently submitted, and to determine whether any additional information is required. 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 from 245 days to 365 days. The preliminary results will now be due no later than December 7, 2010. 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 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1) of the Department's regulations.
This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.Start Signature
