Postponement of Final Determination

The Department of Commerce (“Department”) initiated the antidumping duty investigation of aluminum extrusions from the People's Republic of China (“PRC”) on April 27, 2010.[1] On November 12, 2010, the Department published the Preliminary Start Printed Page 73042Determination in the Federal Register.[2] The final determination of this antidumping duty investigation is currently due on January 10, 2011.

Section 735(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (“the Act”) provides that a final determination may be postponed until not later than 135 days after the date of the publication of the preliminary determination if, in the event of an affirmative determination, a request for such postponement is made by exporters who account for a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise, or in the event of a negative preliminary determination, a request for such postponement is made by petitioner. In addition, 19 CFR 351.210(e)(2) requires that requests by respondents for postponement of a final determination be accompanied by a request for extension of provisional measures from a four-month period to not more than six months.

On November 1, 2010, Guang Ya Aluminium Industries Co., Ltd., Foshan Guangcheng Aluminium Co., Ltd., Kong Ah International Company Limited, and Guang Ya Aluminium Industries (Hong Kong) Limited, (collectively, “Guang Ya Group”), one of the entities comprising the sole active mandatory respondent in this investigation, requested an extension of the final determination and extension of the provisional measures.[3] Thus, because the Preliminary Determination is affirmative, the respondent requesting extension of the final determination and extension of the provisional measures accounts for significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise, and no compelling reasons for denial exist, we are extending the due date for the final determination in this investigation to no later than 135 days after the date of the publication of the preliminary determination.

For the reasons identified above, we are postponing the final determination until March 28, 2011.[4]

This notice is issued and published pursuant to sections 777(i) and 735(a)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(g).
