Background

On May 29, 2009, Department of Commerce (“Department”) published the notice of the initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review on certain activated carbon from the People's Republic of China (“PRC”), covering the period April 1, 2008, through March 31, 2009. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 25711 (May 29, 2009) (“Initiation Notice”).

On May 13, 2010, the Department published the preliminary results of this review. See Certain Activated Carbon From the People's Republic of China: Notice of Preliminary Results of the Second Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, and Preliminary Rescission in Part, 75 FR 26927 (May 13, 2010) (“Preliminary Results”). On July 13, 2010, the Department extended the final results by 45 days. See Certain Activated Carbon From the People's Republic of China: Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 39916 (July 13, 2010). The final results are currently due on October 25, 2010.Start Printed Page 61127

Extension of Time Limits for Final Results

Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“Act”), requires the Department to issue the final results in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. The Department may, however, extend the deadline for completion of the final results of an administrative review to 180 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).

The Department requires additional time to complete this review because the Department must analyze and consider significant issues raised in the parties' case and rebuttal briefs and fully analyze the parties' post-preliminary surrogate value submissions. Thus, it is not practicable to complete this review by the current due date. Therefore, we are extending the time for the completion of the final results of this review by an additional 15 days to November 9, 2010.

This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
