On September 15, 2010, the Department of Commerce (“Department”) published in the Federal Register the Preliminary Results of the sixth administrative and new shipper reviews of certain frozen fish fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam covering the period August 1, 2008, through July 31, 2009. Subsequent to the publication of the Preliminary Results, the Department extended the Start Printed Page 80796deadlines for submission of surrogate values, rebuttal comments and case briefs. The final results are currently due no later than January 13, 2011.
Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“Act”), requires that the Department issue the final results of an administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the deadline for the final results to a maximum of 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published.
Due to the voluminous surrogate value data on the record and the additional time provided to parties to review and submit rebuttal comments and case briefs, the Department finds that it is not practicable to review the surrogate value data and analyze the case brief comments within the scheduled time limit. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is fully extending the time for the completion of the final results of these reviews to March 14, 2011.
We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.Start Signature
