On April 9, 2010, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of the fifth administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the PRC. See Notice of Initiation of Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part of the Antidumping Duty Orders on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and the People's Republic of China, 75 FR 18154 (April 9, 2010). On February 14, 2011, Start Printed Page 30101the Department published the preliminary results of the review.

Statutory Time Limits
In antidumping duty administrative reviews, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), requires the Department to make a final determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the 120 day period to 180 days after the preliminary results if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period.
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review
We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final results of the fifth administrative review of certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the PRC within the 120 day time limit because the Department requires additional time to analyze case and rebuttal briefs.
Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for completion of the final results of this review, which is currently due on June 14, 2011, by 60 days to 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results were published. Therefore, the final results are now due no later than August 13, 2011.
We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
