On July 29, 2009, the Department of Commerce (“Department”) initiated the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished or unfinished (“TRBs”), from the People's Republic of China (“PRC”) for the period June 1, 2008, through May 31, 2009. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Administrative Review, 74 FR 37690 (July 29, 2009). On July 15, 2010, the Department published its preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping order on TRBs from the PRC. See Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof, Finished or Unfinished, from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of the 2008-2009 Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order, 75 FR 41148 (July 15, 2010). The final results of this administrative review are currently due no later than November 12, 2010.Start Printed Page 57444
Extension of Time Limit for Final Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), requires the Department to issue the final results in an administrative review 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.
We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this review within the original time limit because the Department requires additional time to analyze: (a) Issues raised in post-preliminary results supplemental questionnaire responses; (b) issues raised in recent surrogate value submissions; and (c) the anticipated complexity of arguments in the upcoming case and rebuttal briefs due to surrogate valuation, successor-in-interest, and scope issues with regard to the respondents. Therefore, given the complexity of issues in this case, we are extending the time limit for completion of the final results by 30 days.
An extension of 30 days from the current deadline of November 12, 2010, would result in a new deadline of December 12, 2010. However, since December 12, 2010, falls on a Sunday, a non-business day, the final results will now be due no later than December 13, 2010, the next business day.
This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
