On April 21, 2010, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published the preliminary results of this administrative review for the period April 1, 2008, to March 31, 2009. See Magnesium Metal from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of the 2008-2009 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 20817 (April 21, 2010). The final results of review are currently due on August 19, 2010.
Extension of Time Limits for the Final Results of Review
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), requires the Department to issue final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. 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 180 days. Completion of the final results of the administrative review within the 120-day period is not practicable because the Department requires additional time to analyze information obtained at verification; analyze extensive surrogate value information, case and rebuttal briefs; and to hold a public hearing.
Because it is not practicable to complete this review within the time specified under the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the final results of the administrative review to 180 days, until October 18, 2010, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
We are publishing this notice pursuant to sections 751(a) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
