On March 9, 2010, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the initiation of the new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet and strip from India for the period July 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009. See Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet and Strip from India: Initiation of Antidumping Duty and Countervailing Duty New Shipper Reviews, 75 FR 10758 (March 9, 2010). This new shipper review covers one producer and exporter of the subject merchandise to the United States: SRF Limited. The preliminary results of this review are currently due no later than August 29, 2010. See Notice of Clarification: Application of “Next Business Day” Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).
Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary Results
Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and section 351.214(i)(1) of the Department's regulations require the Department to issue the preliminary results of a review within 180 days after the date on which the new shipper review was initiated, and final results of the review within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results were issued. However, if the Department concludes that a new shipper review is extraordinarily complicated, section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and section 351.214(i)(2) of the Department's regulations allow the Department to extend the 180-day period to 300 days, and to extend the 90-day period to 150 days. The Department determines that this new shipper review involves extraordinarily complicated methodological issues, including the examination of importer and customer information. Additional time is also required to ensure that the Department can include SRF's supplemental questionnaire response in its examination of the bona fides of SRF's sale.
Therefore, the Department is extending the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of this new shipper review by a total of 54 days, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). Accordingly, the deadline for the completion of these preliminary results is now no later than October 22, 2010.
This notice is issued and published pursuant to sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.Start Signature
