Extension of Time Limit for Final Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), provides that the Department will issue the final results in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, the Department may 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 determines that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this administrative review by the current deadline of April 21, 2011. Specifically, the Department requires additional time to conduct verification and analyze issues raised by interested parties. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department has decided to extend the time limit for the final results from 120 days to 180 days; the final results will now be due no later than June 20, 2011.
This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.Start Signature
