SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On September 22, 2009, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published in the Federal Register 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 Request for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 48224 (September 22, 2009). The period of review (“POR”) is January 31, 2008, through July 31, 2009. On April 20, 2010,[1] the Department extended the preliminary results by 90 days so the current due date is August 9, 2010, which is the first business day after the 90-day extended due date of August 8, 2010.[2]

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.

The Department has already extended the preliminary results by 90 days but an additional 30-day extension is necessary because the Department needs additional time to analyze and review Petitioners'[3] newly submitted allegations as well as to request and analyze additional information from Zibo Aifudi Plastic Packaging Co., Ltd. in a supplemental questionnaire. 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 30 days from August 8, 2010, until September 7, 2010. 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.
